  1. Nice review, thank you. In my opinion, motors from Batmobil (currently marked as WeDo motors) will be more used and above tested PUP Motor will remain limited to robotics sets.

    I used tires from Fisher Technic. I think that profile matches LGO's nicely.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yes. But please take this more as a general warning, since at this stage really nothing has been confirmed. I would just not want to see another announcement spoiled.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    New product will be announced december 3rd. It would be really nice if all leaks would be kept from here until then.

  6. I think it was this, same for both rail boxes and switches.
  7. I opened some MISB 9V rails ant there was instruction, single sheet of paper showing some layouts and instructing not to connect rails in wrong way (+ and -).

    I doubt there are any instructions for actually using the software. Software works similary to Boost app: upon starting it, you enter 3d animated space themed interface. There you can select several activities, like playing games building semi autonomous robots etc... After selecting activity, you enter computer generated and animated step by step instructions, which include testing hardware and various testing of functionality during build. After you complete the build, you enter program for that model, which will either drive the model by itself, or let you control it via joystick. Software is anctialy not so bad and as we can see, today both mindstorms and boost use similar concepts, only thing which is really annoying is there are a lot of animations, talking etc, whic are meant to make experience a kind of "space adventure", but after few times just make everythging slow. You can see interface here:

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Something will be announced next sunday at 3PM Billund time. All information posted before that will be considered illegal/leak.
  11. I fully agree. But a lot seem to care about it, so I posted it. It will help those who are collecting "all" UCS sets, so they will not need to buy another "assault on hoth"-esque set.
  12. Just to be clear: On august 21st, TLG posted Press release on LAN and other Fan media, which included "This amazing set is part of the LEGO® Star Wars Master Builder Series." First response (that same day) on that post was ambassador from Zussamengebaut (followed by many others) asking what does "Master Builder Series" mean and is meant to replace UCS or is it new series. Two days after that, Kim came back with reply that statement is being prepared by TLG SW team and that we will get it in the middle of next week (so around 29th). Exactly one week later (on thursday, 30th), official statement was posted. My opinion is that this statement was prepared just as reaction to question, posted by ambassadors and that it was originlnly not planned to make any statements on this topic.
  13. So, new classification would be: Ultimate Collectors Series: Ships: 75192 Millenium Falcon 10179 Millenium Falcon 10240 Red Five X-wing 7191 X-wing 75181 Y-wing 10134 Y-wing 10227 B-wing 75144 Snowspeeder 10215 Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter 10026 Naboo Starfighter 10129 Rebel Snowspeeder 10019 Rebel Blockade Runner 10143 Death Star II 10221 Super Star Destroyer 10030 Imperial Star Destroyer 10212 Imperial Shuttle 75095 TIE Fighter 7181 TIE Interceptor 10175 Vader's TIE Advanced 10174 AT-ST 75060 Slave 1 Sculptures: 10018 Darth Maul 10225 R2-D2 10186 General Grievous 7194 Yoda Master Builder Series: 75159 Death Star 10188 Death Star 75098 Assault on Hoth 10236 Ewok Village 75059 Sandcrawler
  14. This was just released by TLG (Kim Thomsen):
  15. Regading MasterBuilder sets: question was asked officialy on Lego Ambassador Network and Kim (formerly from Eurobricks, now admin there but also big fan of LEGO Starr Wars) said that there will be official statement about that comng next week, so we will get “official” answer. Regarding set price: he also said that proper way to value set would be by weight, taking into account number of minifigures and licensing cost. Judging just by piece count is not proper (as we saw many times). I also got information that playsets (even large ones) are very popular with children (at least in some ares, where parents could afford it), including “infamous” Hoth set, but some fans complained about using UCS label so MBS sets may be answer to that.
