  1. This thread collects everything you think you know about 2020 LEGO Star Wars sets; discuss your opinions here! Please read before posting: Stay on target. No wish lists. Remember that this topic is for discussing sets that are rumored to come in 2020. If it's something you wish to see or something you think that we will see sometime in the future, but not something that's actually rumored to be a 2020 set, then it is pure speculation and it belongs in the Future Star Wars Sets topic. (We also have a topic for minifigures you want to see, which might be more appropriate.) No fighting. Yes, we actually have to post that! If you post news in this thread, it will not be transferred over to the 2020 News thread. Be smart, think about what you are posting and in what thread you are posting. This IS your warning! If you choose to post fabricated information; you can expect to be banned. It's not worth the fifteen minutes of internet fame. Do not post watermarked or confidential images; they will be removed and the poster will be dealt with appropriately. As stated in our Member Guidelines: This topic is for 2020 discussion, not 2021, and not 2019. We will make a new topic when we feel it is necessary. If your post was on the boards, and now it's not...there is a good chance it was either hidden or moved. Off topic posts, placing info in the wrong thread, or a request from LEGO to remove something; these are all possible reasons why something may have disappeared. Eurobricks Star Wars Forum Spoiler Policy With regards to upcoming sets and rumors: Read at your own risk. This is a topic about potential items to be released. If you do not want to know, stay out of these forums!!! With regards to spoiler tags: these are not required and we will not force anyone to use them. That being said, I'm sure if you did use them, the community would be a much happier place! Please be respectful of others. If a member used a spoiler tag, their intention was to keep something quiet; it was a courtesy to others. If you choose to comment on the contents of that spoiler tag, please refrain from publicly mentioning what the contents of the spoiler were!!! With regards to movies: We feel that two weeks from the release date is an ample amount of time for most people to view a movie. Once a movie is released in the US, we the staff, will do all we can to curb the usage of spoilers in any of the topics in the Star Wars forum for two weeks. If you do not see the movie within two weeks, then you read here at your own risk. This is the policy in the Star Wars forum, going forward. If you did not agree with us in the past, so be it. From this point on, we will not police the threads unless something becomes an issue. We ask that members not minimod (directly telling other members how to behave ) in the thread and tell others to use spoiler tags. If something is a problem, please inform the mods by reporting it. Any questions, please ask in the appropriate thread.
  2. Hurray! Go Rascals! Great write up!

    Updating Your Minifigs

    I've upgraded my Mando to his new armor using Jango's torso. You can see him here.
  4. Careful we don't begin wishlisting.
  5. I hereby present the Rassilon Rascals: After the destruction of their hometown by a meteor, many Rassilonians wear red in memory of that fiery day. They are led by their manager, Fung Swuay. Their best player is their goalie. By shear body mass alone he blocks half the net. But the rest of the Rascals are no lightweights. They expect to dominate this year.

    Limited Time Challenge! Updated for December

    I'm fine with whatever you decide @goatman461 And it sounds like we are going for landspeeders only!
  7. "They're supposed to be great warriors... Clever, resourceful, proud, intensely loyal to one another, too." - Zahn Special challenge, from now till July 31st you can earn double XP (and double IP if built on an eligible planet). The only criteria is your MOC must include a Chiss depicted in such a way that he/she matches the description given by Timothy Zahn above. You don't have to use the official Thrawn minifigure for this. Only a blue head or blue hands are required. You can use a hood, not show the face, or some other clever way. Blue hands are currently available in the Benny minifigure in the space battle pack from the Lego Movie 2. Please include the word "Chiss" in your entry title to ensure you get double XP.

    Here's my entry: Whenever I go ice-skating, I end up with my feet in the air instead of on the ice.

    Ep. IV: Corporations

    Factions have appeared all over the galaxy. The New Republic is still trying to sway enough planets over to its side to become the legitimate replacement for the Empire. Various Imperial Factions are vying for control of as many sectors as they can manage to control. The Scum of the galaxy is running rampant. What does all this mean? A lot of business for the many Corporations across the galaxy. Starfighters in particular are in high demand. Incom, Sienar, and MandalMotors in particular have seen a spike in profits as every Faction buys up the Starfighters they think will help them gain control of new territories or hold on to the ones they already have. Incom - Location: Fresia K10 Z-95 Headhunter ARC-170 U-Wing T-47 Airspeeder (Snowspeeder) X-Wing Sienar - Location: Castell M9 Sith Infiltrator TIE Series: Fighter, Interceptor, Defender, Bomber, Advance, Reaper, Striker, etc. MandalMotors - Location: Mandalore O7 Fang Fighter Kom'rk Fighter M3-A Fighter Aka'jor Shuttle Lancer Class Pursuit Craft Contest Specifics: Build a Starfighter from one of the three Corporations. The Starfighter should be minifigure scale. It should clearly fall within the Starfighter category and not be classified as a transport ship or larger. If you have questions please ask! You can also build a setting for your Starfighter: the factory where it's built, a shipyard in space where it's built, testing the Starfighter on a planet, taking the Starfighter into battle, etc. Each entry will be judged in two ways. The Starfighter will be judged by itself. Then the setting will be judged. The combined score will equal your XP/IP for the contest. But control of the Corporation will only be judged on the score from the Starfighter. Entries can be set on any planet and will earn appropriate XP and IP there. Regular rules for IP access apply. The highest scoring Starfighter for each Corporation will earn 50 IP on the corresponding headquarters. Only the Starfighters will be scored for this reward. So if CorSec builds the best MandalMotors Starfighter, CorSec will get 50 IP on Mandalore regardless how many other entries there were from other Factions, and regardless of the setting for any of the Starfighters. The Rules: Must be minifigure-scale. Must be a starfighter produced by 1 of the three listed Corporations. It doesn't have to be on the list of examples under each Corporation, but if it's not you should provide Wookiepedia proof. All entries must be posted as a new topic in the Factions subforum, the title prefixed by [Factions Ep. 4][Corporation - Starfighter][Build Sector - Build Planet - Faction]. For example, “[Factions Ep. 4] [Sienar - TIE Striker] [M11 - Corellia - CS] Imperial Forces”. Each person is only allowed 2 entries. Each entry may be for a different Corporation or the same. However, Factions would be wise to coordinate their builds to maximize points within one Corporation. All entries must be entered using this form: Link to Submittal Form All rules in the Core Rules topic apply unless otherwise stated in this explanation or the rules above. There are no restrictions on the size/form/content of the builds, as long as they follow the above described goals. The Episode will run from November 27th to January 31st. As long as it is still Jan 31st somewhere in the world, you can still enter. Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified from the episode and will not be eligible to receive points or XP. Entries will be judged according to the following rules: Your build can earn up to 50 points. The amount of points you earn is also the amount of XP your character earns. This episode/contest is open to all players of Factions, even if they joined EB or signed up for the game after the episode has begun, with the exception of the Star Wars staff, who are not eligible to win XP or prizes; the EB admins and moderators, who are not eligible to win prizes but may earn XP; and the episode host, who is not eligible to win prizes but may earn XP. All entries must be new creations, not posted anywhere else prior to the start date of this episode. You can use creations for this contest in other forums or contests, but it should not have been displayed before the start date for this contest. You may be asked by a staff member to change your entry if it is too similar to an earlier creation. All entries must be built from real LEGO or with Lego Digital Designer. No third-party molds may be used for the subject non-human. If you are using Lego Digital Designer, please remember you can only use existing colors and pieces. Also be aware that the judges will watching to make sure your LDD model could hold itself up in real-life. Post pictures no larger than 1024x768, as specified in the EB Member Guidelines. You may do a 'full-blown photo edit' with all the text, effects, background compositing, support erasing, and other effects on ANY picture. For obvious reasons, any photo editing that changes the shape, functionality, or color (not tint or adjustment, but actual color) of a LEGO piece is prohibited,. All entries are considered WIPs (Works In Progress) until the deadline passes. Until the deadline has passed, you are allowed to change and improve your MOC. The Prizes: You will receive XP equal to the number of points you are awarded from the judges. Your faction will receive IP on your posted planet if your MOC is eligible for them. If your Factions earns the most XP for a Corporation, they will earn 50 IP on the given headquarters for the Corporation.

    Ep. IV: Corporations

    You need to either make a fighter that's instantly recognizable, or one that has a Wookiepedia reference. Additional guns, different color scheme, and other surface changes are okay. But if you took a B-Wing and gave it 4 or 5 s-foils instead of 3 that would be pushing it too far.

    Sounds like the perfect time for a contest!

    Limited Time Challenge! Updated for December

    The intention was to have people make a landspeeder. Not an airspeeder, snow speeder, or cloud car. Examples of landspeeders are the X-34 that Luke drives in a New Hope, the Flash Speeder from Phantom Menace, and the M-68 Han drives at the beginning of Solo.

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    Yes! I want that goat! Lego, listen to this! And then give Bricklink back to us.
  16. *Your entry has earned 10 XP* While CorSec was busy on Vanik, their allies, the Bothans, were having meetings of their own. Since smuggler and cartel business was on the rise, the Bothans knew they needed more eyes around the galaxy. Every since their now famous role in taking down a Death Star, the Bothans had a hard time acting as spies. By partnering with the Kubaz, they hoped to gather more intel that could help CorSec and the New Republic. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Kubaz/Legends

    EB Xmas Build 2019

    Yay! I was hoping there would be some kind of contest. I'll get started on my entry!
  18. Please use spoilers when you answer, but which one has been named as Paz Viszla?

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    I wish this was an April Fools joke. I'm very worried for the future of Bricklink. I know if it crashes and burns another will rise in its place, but that could take a few years.
  20. I'm wondering if the "amazing first" could be chrome pieces. No, there's not. Sorry. Feel free to PM me if needed.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    @Clahador Wow! How many hundreds of dollars did that set you back?
  22. As has always been the case in the SW forum, we ask that people use Spoiler tags as a courtesy to others. We usually try to shoot for the 2 week window to allow people to see the movies. The Mandalorian is different because there are fewer restraints for some people (it's a 40 min time commitment and doesn't cost a movie ticket) and more restrictions for others (it hasn't bee released in most of the world). So no matter what this is going to be tricky. As Moderators and Regulators we ask that those who have seen the show please be considerate. But for those who haven't, please be realistic about your expectations. The show is going to be talked about. If not here then on every other website. Spoilers are impossible to avoid completely and you just have to accept that. Don't get in a huff if you think something has been spoiled for you on this thread.
  23. I'll be getting 2 of the Mando battle pack for sure. Awesome episode that just demands recreation in Lego.

    Factions - Introduction, Discussion, and Core Rules

    For the "sig card," or Signature Generator you'll need to use this. It's not as fancy as AG, it won't auto update with new XP. You'll have to periodically go and update it yourself. For each player's overall score, you can see that here. There are a few bugs still, so if you see something that doesn't look right please let me know.
