Mickey is a Jedi, Donald is a Stormtrooper, Minnie is Leia, Goofy is Vader, and of course R2 has Mouse Ears...
So, anyone else for Mara Jade? (yea, not gonna happen, but it would be nice)
Maybe they go with someone to support Mos Eisley -- the bartender? We know it is probably not Momaw Nadon (Hammerhead) because I think he was on the box.
I'm looking forward to what ends up in the Advent Calendar. Should be a combination of some Mos Eisley-related figs and Ep3 figs. Thinking we'll see a Bith band member, a sand stormie, and a Jawa.
Momaw Nadon was not in the leaked image of the cantina set. There is an Ithorian in another set, but it's not Nadon. Since they've apparently got a mold, though, it wouldn't surprise me to see Nadon in the cantina set since he's one of the more recognizable aliens.
For me, Star Wars has always been what happens on the screen (pre-lucas edits). How crazy that I even have to say that qualifier. (Han shot first, Fett isn't a kiwi, Vader does not turn into Hayden Chrishowitspelledsen upon death). So i'd personally prefer something from the films (though don't expect it).
I just can't warm to anything EU in the same way (unfortunately). It will be very interesting to see what the new films do with it all. I wouldn't be surprised if they did a complete washover, like the books never happened. Writers/Directors tend not to like being told what to write/film.
+1 for Thrawn for me though
Secondly, I'm kind of curious about the "Random Assorted Bricks" pack. I'm wondering if it's a Pick A Brick selection, or a set in its own right.
What's wrong with your FAAAAACE?
More sensibly however, I can't recall any of the previous May 4th promos appearing anywhere else first, could be wrong on that, but given just how important the date has become to companies promoting SW products I can't see them letting exclusive promo's out into the world early, especially if they will be used to draw people in to buy items like the sandcrawler (if that rumour is true). The poster on the other had is much more probable as part of the May 4th promo.
Are you in the pencil making business? Because you make a very good point. ;o)
Sorry, I have way too many of those :-P
Who do I trust? Me! :)
Certain exclusive sets (esp. Series that have IP(Intellectual Property)) rights are guarded with higher levels of privacy than non IP series. Granted sometimes leaks do happen, some not so accidental ;) and others that really upset the Lego group.
Take for instance the May 4th exclusive poly bags, if someone posted the prototype picture of the main exclusive mini fig, the list of suspects is NOT that long. Your going to have to trust me on this.
So hypothetically if someone had information she/he has to be very careful as the goal of that said person is to build up anticipation without ruining the surprise. The Lego Group's Confidentiality Agreement is very very very clear cut on termination and post penalties. Credibility on a forum does not pay bills.
So a source can only be trusted if you trust that source. However since sooner or later;likely unintentionally; the main 2014 UCS set will be leaked, it is Slave 1 that will be released in the Fall with a price of $2X9.99
I don't know anyone that works for lego or any contact with the company myself and hidden behind obscure usernames in a vertual world I have no idea who does so when the guessing gets going on these events the stronger staments will always raise an eyebrow, doesn't mean they are wrong but on this thread we have two very strong contradictory statements, it just made me think of watergate for some reason :)
No offence meant, just thought it was funny.
But to keep the guessing going
Darth Vader in beach outfit, European Budgie Smugglers with Banana Dacarie drink :)
Yes! Sped the Hunchback, of course!
...I hear he used to have a line selling slaves along the River Shale... before the 'accident'... after that he started to go by the name 'Jabba', and was... never the same. ;o)
