  1. I finally built my physical copy of 10305 and must say it was quite an experience... I started collecting and building LEGO castle sets as a kid in the 80s. Now this was nothing like the castles of my past as there was no use of thin or raised baseplates, nor was there anything like the classic castle wall element or its more updated version. Instead, everything is brick-built, which I can only describe as densely packed and absolutely refreshing. This allowed for some really great details and some ingenious techniques to be incorporated into the build that wouldn't have been possible otherwise. The designers even built the lower/cave portions without the use of BURP (big ugly rock pieces), like part 6082 or part 6083, which are still included in sets sold today. And any large pieces - like the 1x6x5 wall element, 2x2x16 brick, or 6x8 ramp - are used only once each. The castle itself is a delight with so many features and creative angles that I would never have expected from an official castle set. There is a lot to unpack and I was never bored while building. If there was ever a repeated event, there was also some detail in the same step or between similar steps that would break any possible monotony. Lastly, nostalgia really hit me hard several times while building. But this was most palpable when I pulled the red, white, and blue shield out of the bag similar to those included in my first LEGO Castle set: 6077: Knight's Procession. It felt like I had stepped back in time and was actually holding a piece from my childhood. I highly recommend this set to anyone even close to interested in the LEGO Castle line.
  2. I think you missed the emoji at the end of Big_Daddy's post. They were clearly joking.
  3. I agree. But I can't fault someone for not feeling Christmas when it's not exactly warm in their experience. Having said that as someone from the US - this reminds me of is travelling during the Holidays. A warm vacation during Christmas time on or near the beach can be quite nice.

    Tie Bomber (updated pods)

    This looks great. The only thing I think I would make is some greebling on the top of the port/bomb side cylinder.
  5. I'm not sure about and "lore" around them. But aren't they opposing forces to the Royal Knights? I assumed this was the case because one of the Royal Knights was included in 6097: Night Lord's Castle and otherwise just seems out of place.
  6. Regarding 75334: Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Darth Vader - It seems VERY similar in size to 75171: Battle on Scarif from 5 years ago at the same $50 price. And I quite liked that set. I will definitely get it.
  7. Do we know where else the duel set will be sold or if this is a LEGO exclusive?
  8. I have both sets and took a look at the Fennec Shane figures. I can confirm that the only difference between the two is the helmet versus the hair.
  9. Yeah, thankfully I live locally and was able to make a quick run to that Costco and pick up the set today. I'm not sure when I'll get to build it (probably over the weekend) but I sure am looking forward to it.
  10. The latest pictures of the palace (leaked from Amazon) look good. I think it’s a definite buy for me. I’m just hoping there’s a way to expand on the set - like they did with the last palace and Rancor sets.
  11. I like the look and size but have to agree with THELEGOBATMAN that the grate for the pit does not work well.
  12. @lego_fulcrum on IG says that the Gamorrean Guard torso mold from 2012/2013 "is coming back". Any truth to the rumor? Honestly, I'd be surprised since it hasn't been used in 9 years and the Gamorrean's we've seen in BoBF have been shirtless.
  13. You're absolutely right. At first I thought they had changed the torsos from 75315 : Imperial Light Cruiser. But that doesn't seem to be the case at all.
