  1. I went to my local yesterday and the staff was stocking shelves, no SW there, asked and he opened all the boxes for me... best lego experience in a long while too! Good first day out of lockdown 😎 The usual tag on the usual app has some preliminary info on the upcoming (yet to be confirmed) UCS AT-AT.
  2. I agree, if we want more PT stuff, we should be behind this set. As they stated in the video, clearly have an awareness of 'Jedi Bob' and 'Commander Cody' Hopefully people can move past the minifig. If you are that hung up on an AOTC set for a minifig, perhaps UCS isn't for you and sit it out and hopefully you get a Cody in the next few years. I suspect you will be waiting a long time with all the Disney+ content coming and then that will feed into the new slate of movies... If you think it's 20+years of SW Lego and we only have just received a decent chunk of the Cantina, a handful of Jabba's Palace as well. I'm sure they may get around to it, otherwise it will be like a number of others... at least he exists... I agree, there is at least 1 MBS set there, Genosian Arena with the creatures would be cool...
  3. Forge looks better than I thought we'd get. Pretty happy with this wave.
  4. A lot of people are didn't MandR run a campaign for Jar Jar? Perhaps an ObiWan as Kenobi is coming soon would be a nice omage to the OT as well.
  5. I'm waiting to see the finished article, they may have to Range Trooper pauldrons. The figs look better that I expected, really like the look of the heavy trooper as well. Easily one of the best waves in years and with 2 possible UCS reveals, it could go down as one of the best waves in SW Lego.
  6. Please expand on toxic... Pretty sure @Brikkyy13 is commenting on things that are out in public forum here. On the wave, it's "A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one" feels like the Rogue One period, well before TROS started the Lego dive for a few years...
  7. They should be politicians, deflect and avoid. We're not asking for special treatment just equal.
  8. The battle packs are the best news I've had in a while... So much potential now with all the shows coming up.
  9. UCS falcon had figures related to the movie either OT or ST so that argument doesn't really stand. Nothing has been out of place for UCS, it's always been a Hugh end focus with appropriate minifigs. Lego said it was an AOTC focused set in the vote, Cody wasn't in it. Mace, Yoda, Anakie, Padme, Obi-Wan and phase 1 clones were, pick from them. Honestly SW fans are getting a little bit annoying with all the Cody carry on. If I were lego I'd not ask anymore after the brickheadz and this whinging fiasco. If you hate the fact that Cody isn't in don't buy the set, personally I don't care, I'm actually buying it for the ship and not a minifig. By the way I actually voted for the Nebulon and paid over the odds for the SDCC one which didn't come with a Cody or any minifig for that matter, just the ship. I get it's a sore point but nothing new since 99, the sets that were missed or minifig selection back then was the same as it is now... It took us until 2020, to get most of the Cantina done, a decent portion of Jabba's throne (2014), no Genosian Arena, no Yavin base (probably wouldn't sell well). AOTC, TPM and ROTS aren't all that well represented and we're complaining over what essentially is a CW character... please I know he was in ROTS, but no context to the relationship was established on film. People should be happy we're getting a PT UCS set, not too many of them around. I'd kill for and ARC-170, JSF, amongst others. We get recycled system scale sets, nothing Wookie updated in a while. I don't see why people are surprised of have such hurt feelings over it. Still no bantha or arena creatures either, complete missed boat.
  10. I don't get the Cody love for this set. It makes zero sense. Hopefully we get him in another set, but not pinning my hopes on it. I also don't understand the retric that many fans will not forgive Lego for this, so a bunch of people didn't get what they want, if you've been doing this since 99, it's par for the course. Otherwise, welcome to the party...
  11. You're probably right, can't remember if they did the Razor's Crest though...
  12. Saw on usual places the new Headless character from the HP line being fully glow in the dark... Would really love some Jedi spirit characters...
  13. Yeah I commented on the post last night saying I wouldn't believe anything therein. People sprouting nonsense like @MandRproductions get people like @BigA_7 (not saying he watched the clip) influenced by others when it is really nothing more than an opinion on a geographic region that he has very little knowledge of. With regards to being in Australia, it was difficult getting any set Lego last year, I was lucky that I got mine in the first release window. Being in Melbourne (for those of you who don't know, it was the worst hit city in Australia and 4million of us we're locked in/down for 100+ days) I was still able to get my hands on them. I think the problem was people (myself included) bought several of them, I don't personally trust Lego or retail here to get it right so purchased a few of them.
  14. If you can buy them, not too fussed about some price point go for it. Each to their own I guess.
  15. I feel like getting them day 1 is a thing in Australia as retail barely have any to buy most times these days.
  16. I find I only buy the UCS sets these days, I'll pick the probe up on Amazon, probably be cheaper and well i trust their shipping when comparing with lego here. Shame that we get treated so poorly.
  17. Feel like we are always hoping for more minfigs.
  18. Myer had it on their website a few days ago, some other etailers as well.
  19. If the list is true, then I'll be very happy right now.
  20. I also live in a capital city in Australia and there are massive stock issues with SW Lego over the past 18 months. Can totally agree with the AT-ST Raider, luckily picked one up on day 1 otherwise would've never got it. Additionally there have been stock issues from warehouse to other retail outlets and this has a flow on affect, luckily I got my 501st and AAT sets online last year but know a number of people who have had issues trying to purchase in stores.
  21. I've posted in the future speculation thread, wondering here if anyone has heard of any High Republic sets for 2HY? Seems to be a big push from LFL on this era.

    Future Star Wars Sets

    Does anyone think that we may get a 'The High Republic' theme? They did this with 'The Old Republic' I expect they may stick to the movies/streaming but Lucasfilm have pushed this project like no other outside of TV/Movies beforehand... This dropped today. Got me thinking that Lego may jump on board as some of their other licences have.
  23. I'm ok with it the way that it is, I feel its far easier for me to scroll to the points that most interest me or check out the other pages on occasions. I wish for the days when we used to have more pictures and leaks than we do these days...
  24. PLease not another DS, I didn't even get this one as it felt very little changed between this and the last one. Unless its a DS2 with sections I don't think there is the need and there really were only 2 iconic scenes: 1) Emperor's arrival 2) Throne Room.
