A few days ago, The Brick Fan reported that there will be some new LEGO Star Wars Character Construction sets coming this September/October which were seen at the 2015 Nuremberg Toy Fair. There’s a new report coming out of ToyArk that names the characters in the wave including Jedi Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Jango Fett, Commander Cody, Clone Wars Obi-Wan, and General Grieveous. However, this conflicts with the report by Promo Bricks because they mentioned Boba Fett would be in the wave instead of Jango. We’ll see in the near future of which Mandalorian we’ll be getting.

I find it odd that several sets are coming out of LEGO's productions with similar or similar to LEGO Ideas submissions by fans, The Brick Show made a video a few years back with pictures of the concepts by Pekko:
I personally think LEGO always have hundreds of ideas and this happened to be one of them. Like the Helicarrier, I'm pretty sure LEGO had passion to release a large Helicarrier set back in 2010/2011 but I guess they thought they could wait until they get a positive response from fans on the new 'Super Heroes' theme and now LEGO and Marvel have a larger fan base so this year LEGO thought was a better time to release a Helicarrier set before things get dark in future movies.
What's your thoughts on the new Star Wars Ultra Build sets? What do you think of the conflict between similar LEGO products and LEGO Ideas projects?
