    Brickshelf

    Starwars4J
    By Starwars4J,

    Ever since Brickshelf went down earlier today the general community has been in a panic. Some were curious, and some were angry. Mostly people just wanted to know if it's permanent. I urge everyone to just sit back calmly and wait to see how things unfold. New member Dryw Filtiarn has mentioned that the staff of Peeron.com have been just as confused as we are.

    Right now we don't know what happened, we don't know if it was some sort of attack on their servers. We don't know if it was intentional. We don't know if it's some other small problem. And most importantly we don't know if it's permanent. While I urge everyone to backup whatever pictures they have in case this is permanent, I also urge you to keep a calm head, and remember the possibility that this was temporary.

    No, this wasn't a prank. No, I'm not happy about it either. But if this was an accident it will be okay, and I beg you to remember that. Even if Brickshelf were to go down, it's not the end of the online Lego community. EB would be here tomorrow, as would all the other AFOL sites. The 2008 sets will still come out, and the hobby will persevere. Brickshelf was a vitally important tool, and if it is gone, it just means we'll have to start again. It's not the end of anything, I promise you that. The site may not even be gone for good, heck, you may wake up tomorrow to find all the links restored! So please, try to keep that in mind :-)

    If

    Thanks, and MOC On!

    Edit by Jipay : In case the problem would only be technical, I'd like everyone to keep in mind that websites all have some sort of backup. So if for whatever reason your server crash, you can get back all your data. The only problem being that it takes a lot of time and efforts to manage this operation.

    So as stated by SW4J, just stay calm, don't panic, and everything will be fine.

    EDIT 3: DJSaulTNutz has confirmed part of the set list:

    7669 Anakin's Fighter $19.99

    7670 Hail-fire Droid $19.99 (includes tan battle droids, dark gray super battle droids, spider droid)

    7671 AT-AP Podwalker $39.99

    7672 Rogue Shadow $49.99 (3 figs from the EU, very cool)

    Thanks to DJSaulTNutz:

    "From the Classic Trilogy there is a Storm Trooper Dropship which is a small set with a label "Build you armies" comes with 2 stormies and Tie Pilot.

    From the Prequal Trilogy line the AT-PT. Very nice looking with 2 Clones that appeared to be shocktroopers

    From the Clone Wars animated series was Anakin Skywalker's Jedi Starfighter. this is a standard episode 2 Jedi Starfighter but is colored similar to his Episode 3 starfighter. (the Grey and Yellow one) very similar to Seasee's starfighter.

    The 4th set was from Force Unleashed. It is Darth Vader's Apprentices ship the Rogue Shadow. it looks alot like the IG-2000. comes with Mini Figs of the Apprentice with a large cut/bandaged area in his midsection, a very very battle damaged Vader, and the female Imperial officer (who's name completely escapes me right now.)"

    EDIT 2: Here is some more news again !! (thanks to DJSaulTNutz of course!).

    There will also be a Grievous model that when assembled is about 12 inches high, and potentiall with a real cloth cape included....I have seen this model myself and it is really fantastic. It will be one of the UCS models for next year.

    EDIT 1: Here's some more news (thanks to DJSaulTNutz of course!).

    The two new battlepacks other than the Stormie battlepack will be:

    Hoth Battlepack - Contents unknown, but NO Taun Taun

    Droid Battlepack - 4 battle droids, 2 super battle droids, a dwarf spider droid and a hailfire droid!

    The names aren't accurate/confirmed, I just made them up based on the contents ;-)
