  1. Yes, it was the same format where fans voted for 1 of 3 sets. The 2009 Fan's Choice Set is a set where people voted on three alternatives for a 2009 Star Wars LEGO set. Voting was from May 10 to 18, 2008. The three alternatives were: The Arrest of Palpatine Slave I and Cloud City Landing Platform Mon Calamari Cruiser Set It was later found that the winner of the contest was the Mon Calamari Cruiser Set, and became the 7754 Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser.
  2. History tends to repeat itself. Home One didn't sell well after it won the fan vote...

    Loose bricks on my last purchase

    I had similar issues with the older Hogwarts sets from a few years back ...not the new Hogwarts. They have almost 0 clutch power on some of the roof pieces. They just sit there very loose. I can only assume that the parts were exposed to extreme fluctuations in humidity that caused them to expand and shrink a tiny amount before I received them. Fluctuations in humidity tends to be the cause of many problems with abs plastic. Loss of clutch power being minor to brittle cracking and breaking being much more if an issue.
  4. Unless season 2 bombs or the razorcrest gets destroyed in the show I expect us to get season 3 and a remake of the Lego razorcrest. It's basically the new falcon. The protagonist ship from the most popular thing going in the star wars universe. TLG wont miss the opportunity to make more money off of it.
  5. You dont see the issue with your point? You werent collecting back were 9 in 2009 so you are still a kid now. You have no basis to have any kind of valid opinion but you still try to give one. This forum is ridiculous. Just dont respond to me...
  6. I question your involvement in the hobby 10 or 15 years ago if you think it's debatable. Clone wars sets were constant shelf warmers and would hit deep clearance and still not get purchased. There was a general consensus within the afol community of disliking the large, anime style eye printing that didnt match other type of figures. The point is, there seems to have been a shift lately. People seem to be clamouring for clone Wars and PT sets. We dont need to get to off topic and go into why that ^ is (we can have that conversation in pms if you want). I'm interested to see if waves that are a majority PT/CW continue to be produced in the future. There is definitely untapped potential there for sets.
  7. I hope you aren't in a vocal minority. For a long time many people have focused on the OT at the expense of the PT. TCW sets already failed once. PT sets have historically not sold as well as OT sets over the last couple decades but there seems to have been a shift lately. Hopefully, for Legos sake, there are a few hundred thousand of you who will put their money where their mouth is.
  8. The final duel is basically identical to the last one. Really a missed opportunity to get that instead of an exogal throne. This will be the first wave in awhile I'm not interested in a single set (except the advent). Maybe there will be an exclusive we havent seen yet?
  9. I think you and others missed the point. You are using the word confirmed very loosely and inaccurately. You could at least say : confirmed by X (so people will understand it wasn't official.) Or word it so the statement is about the leak since nothing has actually been confirmed by anyone who works for TLG. I'm not some under 30 year old kid who is new to following Lego leaks (I've been following them long before there was an Instagram lol) Anyone who has been in the hobby for at least a decade or 2 has seen leaks of figures/sets that never come to fruition. It should be understood that projects have been scrapped just prior to production multiple times. Words matter. Calling something confirmed that isn't is foolish. I'm sure the ucs will most likely be an A wing...that has been talked about for at least 6 months. Calling it confirmed when it isn't is just spreading bad information from people who haven't been around long enough to know better.
  10. Apparently you weren't at celebration ;) "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means"
  11. Ok, so an educated guess. Not officially confirmed. Just checking.
  12. Who confirmed the ucs a wing? A lego rep? Are you using the word confirmed incorrectly or was it actually, officially confirmed?
  13. No. Lego listens more often than you realize.
  14. I'm concerned it was a very loud, vocal minority who wanted this set and it won't end up selling well in the eyes of TLG. I hope everyone on these forums who was vocal about wanting this buys 20 or 30 of these to army build. I don't see the appeal. I was an adult when the prequels came out so this isnt targeted at me. It's time for all the kids to put their money where their mouth is.
  15. Good I must have clicked the wrong page. I thought it was recent.
