  1. Apparently you weren't at celebration ;) "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means"
  2. Ok, so an educated guess. Not officially confirmed. Just checking.
  3. Who confirmed the ucs a wing? A lego rep? Are you using the word confirmed incorrectly or was it actually, officially confirmed?
  4. No. Lego listens more often than you realize.
  5. 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.
  6. Good question....lol. I must have clicked the wrong page. I thought it was recent.
  7. The maul thing with him eating trash to survive after getting cut in half and falling down a shaft was horribly stupid, I agree. All I can say is "not my canon." That is a Dave storyline that he got George to approve, not the other way around.
  8. That date was because of celebration.

    LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed

    It's a clear rip off of star wars galaxy of heroes but it's nice to be able to start from a place where there isn't a crazy amount of power creep. I have been enjoying it. It's a pay to win game though so I will never give it a dime. I can still compete with the top players on my server being free to play since its so new just by being efficient. That won't last forever. It's fun to kill some time but I don't see it lasting. The games forum is being discontinued and they are telling people to use social media instead. It's definitely not like your standard lego game that is targeted at kids. This is purely there to get some of that goh/msf money from afols.
  10. Agreed, sounds like wish listing to me. There was not even cryptic, unconfirmed confirmation. It was just click bait.
  11. I like the busts/helmets as exclusives (either con or shared con/store). They are neat builds with no exclusive parts/printed pieces so even if you can't get them because the number produced is limited you can brick link them later easily enough. The box being the only thing that is actually "exclusive". Similar to how they used to do the little diorama /micro build type of sets as con exclusives very frequently. Now they have transitioned those to being "free with purchase" sets like 40362, 40333 etc. It becomes a slippery slope. So now we are starting to see these type of sets in a normal wave. (No figs, 0 or very limited printed/exclusive parts, a lot of tiny pieces). They are cheap to make so it makes sense from TLGs point of view. Is that what the consumers want from a standard wave? Judging by the comments I'm unsure. We will see how they sell. For me these are something I will pick up if I find them at a deep discount but I could take them or leave them. I have picked up con exclusives in the past and even if they aren't large or detailed builds I still like them because they are a souvenir/memory from the con I attended. At least the helmets are slightly larger than the average con exclusive. They do seem to have a lot of tiny pieces that inflates the piece count a bit though. I like the theory of them. Like brickheads or Star Wars constraction figures they are a new, creative line of sets. New and unusual is good. I can't fault TLG for trying something new. Maybe these will be more popular than I think?
  12. I would definitely buy a ucs gonk droid that is in scale with ucs r2 hah. Awing not so much.
  13. Not sure how many people follow other toy lines but at NYTF Diamond Select announced they are releasing a new LotR line. Just seeing it gives me hope for more Lego. The new live action LotR TV show is said to release in 2021. How do other people think the recent success of the Harry Potter theme will affect the possibility of another LotR line? I am torn. It seems like a positive that the Potter theme has sold so well after being re-released. That gives me hope that the same could happen for a LotR line...but then there is the other side. Has Harry Potter sold so well that it will fill the "castle" theme slot at the expense of the possibility of a re-released LotR theme? Does anyone think that having both Harry Potter sets and LotR sets on the shelf at the same time might be possible? That seems unlikely to me. Since the 3rd (and final?) Fantastic Beasts movie releases in 2021 I guess it could be possible that we get a last wave of Potter for the movie and *If* the LotR TV show ends up being popular the "castle" sets could transition from Potter to LotR at that time? I am hopeful no matter how unlikely it might be.
  14. We will probably see U wings in the Cassian TV show. That is the most likely time we will see another. It has a tentative release date in 2021.
  15. Why do you think I want to convince you? Again, I'm happy to have a conversation but that is off topic and shouldn't be had here. Feel free to PM me if you want .
  16. I think the D-O looks great. I still want to see it next to UCS R2/BB8. I saw it mentioned it was almost a foot tall. With stand, BB8 is around 10 inches and D-O should be shorter. I figure the "almost a foot tall" comment includes the dirt patch. Hopefully it is small enough to display well next to the other 2? Unsure. If D-O ends up larger than bb8 that is likely a deal breaker for me but as a stand alone set it looks wonderful.
  17. Lol dub. Comparing cartoons to the Mandalorian is a poor comparison. If you want to discuss comparing the razorcrest to something like the ghost we can...but it should be in PM.
  18. Ya, the ghost is the exception, not the rule. I could list a half dozen reasons why the ghost specifically wouldnt get a remake and this will. Not the same situation. Not concerned at all.
  19. Of course they did. There was a good amount of video that was shown to the public at celebration last April. Specifically, the razorcrest being designed and having animation added to it engines etc. It was only baby yoda that was under wraps.
  20. Hmm I saw a couple more IG photos but the engines don't seem to extend out any further. I'm wondering if we looked at the same ones? This was the one set I was really hoping we'd get, but the shape of the ship still looks strange to me. The proportions still seem off. Maybe to long, wings stubby, there is a strange bumped out portion on the top rear. that seems like it should be more flush with the rest of the ship...and I've had all day to look at it and come back later to reassess. There is a chance I change my mind after all the toy fair coverage I guess? Funny because this is the only set I wanted in the summer wave, here it is, everyone seems excited and I just don't think it is worthy of my display. It looks odd. For now this may be one that I wait for a remake of. I wish I was as excited as everyone else seems to be. But that's fine. There have been sets I didn't care for the design of and waited for a remake before. Lego is always good for that.
  21. You dont think it seems like it is to long? The real razorcrest has a more stubby looking design imo. (I'm probably not explaining that well but hopefully you get my meaning). But yes, the engines dont extend out far enough as well.
  22. The cockpit looks fine to me. I think its more the proportions making it look strange? Maybe it should be slightly taller but shorter length wise? Maybe the engines ahould be spread a little wider? Unsure. Hard to say exactly. It just seems off.
  23. I'm going to be patient for now and see how I feel about it when it is on shelves. For now this set screams that we will get a remake in a year or two to me.
  24. It does look a little off. It might have been a rushed design to get it on shelves? For comparison:
