Images of the new #75204 Sandspeeder have surfaced in the usual places...
Basically a re-coloured T-47, plus a moisture vaporator. At £30 I could be tempted, but looking at the recent pricing structure of the latest wave it will be an easy pass at £40!
Oooh wow, or uhmm rather; ay! I dunno if it is all that wow, I just had a look on the infamous web where such images surface first.
It is a differently modified T-47 in sand colours with some extra dorsal winglets. The set contains two minifigs, both wearing the famous X-wing type helmets (one has a dark red helmet, the other a white one). They are clad in grey pilot zero-G suits. The box states that the set contains 278 pieces.
When I read your comment my first thought was: 'what, another TESB snowspeeder?!'
This set does not look all that bad, but a speeder destroying a H2O vaporator? Not too exiting. #75049 came with 3 minifigs, and contains a Imperial snowtrooper equipped with a E-Web heavy repeating blaster canon tripod. this new unreleased set seems to contain only two figures. I don't see how those winglets are an improvement to speeders that were nimble enough in TESB dealing with AT-AT's? Ooh well... I probably still want it.
It’s a nice thing to have.
Suppose this his is what happens when a cash machine owns the rights...
An Old Republic era trilogy would be awesome.
“While details are scarce, the new trilogy will be separate from the classic Skywalker saga, and instead will focus on “new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.”
Star Wars is getting an all-new trilogy from Rian Johnson - The Verge https://apple.news/AOXQ5HPSpS3KLjbZF19NO1Q
Now, I’m more happy with that! Didn’t really want another re telling of the original story for a new generation.
One of the things that made The Old Republic era great was that is was still Star Wars but with separate characters and stories. Characters that could still be memorable - HK-47 and Darth Revan are some of the best SW characters ever.
^ Who? ;-> Seriously, I'm sure they are great characters, but the majority of the movie-going public like things being familiar. Get too far off the beaten path and people will think "Is this really Star Wars?" Gotta have the TIE craft, lightsabers, Darth Whatever, desert planets, some alphabetically shaped craft and maybe a lovable rogue with a blaster. If the Old Republic has that then I'm sure it'll do well.
Right now it's Star Wars overload. All it will take for one movie to bomb and that could do some real damage to the franchise going forward. This is why I don't like the movie every year thing.
I hope I'm wrong and the new trilogy and movies are amazing but if Disney keeps rushing out content then a disaster at the box office is odds on to happen.
and is it just me, or each planet doesn't feel like more than just a city or a small area? like let's say they go get something on a planet but have no idea where it is, they'll still manage to land no further than a few kms away. maybe that's the force guiding them.
They were not wrong about that reaction...

I'm reassured that it does include a Porg perch, I was getting worried....!

The RRP of £25 doesn't seem too bad.
But I do think it will be a leftover from a previous promo...either themail may 4th from this year or last.
Just got back myself, and don't recall seeing it either, Could be the #75100 of the film where you blink and miss it.
Really enjoyed the film though and can't wait to see where they go with the series.
