Unfortunately, season 1 seems to no longer be available to watch as of about 1 week ago, but if you can find it I recommend starting with episode 6 or 7 if you can't stomach the first 5. You won't really miss anything of substance
I could listen to James Earl Jones read the phone book.
I think you mean keeping the set proportional.
Photos of the new 2016 Advent Calendar have surfaced.....
They're on a well known site, which has close links to the first Episode V environment!
It includes a Bespin Guard, and a silver-chrome protocol droid (possibly E-3PO?)
Though I realize it's not based on the OT version, that A-wing looks messy. I do like the Jakku set; it's pushing me closer to collecting TFA stuff. I think the Luggabeast would've looked better in brown, but the blue does add some much-needed color to the set.
Hey where have you been? I miss your jokes
I've haven't found any close ups of it, but I'm totally convinced either way at the moment. It may be the lighting, but the top of the head and arms look slightly lighter than the rest, which may mean that it's nice and shiny!
And @legomatt it's good to see you back :-)
2.) Tie Advanced Vs. Y-Wing has me drooling, but I'm mostly interested in the Tie itself and will wait until enough of them are parted out on eBay.
3.) Encounter on Jakku looks really cool and I want to get a closer look at the luggabeast. It reminds me a lot of Battle on Takodana though and will probably be way too much $$$ for what it is.
4.) Calendar looks great too but they are a horrible value imo, so I will probably pass on it as well. Just way too much to buy this year with all the great Creator 3in1, Marvel, and Star Wars sets.
Or is it because 'they' take a different approach to publishing photo's then Huw and all other Brickset writers here do. That is to say; 'they' perhaps don't really give a toss if TLG indicates that they don't want pictures of certain yet to be released sets being out on the web, and just post them anyway, either because these pics are already floating around on the web, or 'they' perhaps publish them themselves without consent of TLG, because unlike Huw, 'they' do not foster or care to foster some kind of special relationship with the company whose products 'they' are a fan of and have dedicated their website to!?! Anyone know the answer to these questions?
Vader's Tie vs A-wing fighter looks like such an epic set! It might be the most desired 2016 SW of the whole bunch, if you ask me.
Are 'they' sometimes forced to take the pics down they post as a consequence of doing so without consent when TLG stipulates these are not yet to be published?
I don't visit them that often, so I don't know if this is the case or not.
I was nearly turned into a newt. ;o)
It's been a long (ongoing) recovery process, but they say I'm getting better - I don't know what i'm getting better at mind you, but the doctors sound optimistic nevertheless. I'm hoping I end up with some sort of super power.
Or Tennis (though that would be a waste, as i don't play).
Or maybe something involving a sexy party...

Well, get well quick and soon dude, and may you have a cornucopia of sexy parties too.
...has anybody ever actually asked?
"...Honestly doctor, i think a sexy party will do me the world of good, yes on a giant luxury yacht... obviously with poker tables and free bar... about a 6-month cruise, i mean course, should do...".
So... hey, Star Wars... That's a thing:
Mine would be of the comedic innocence of a 'Carry On' romp or Benny Hill stylee chase sequence.
So would of course have to be 'The Farce Awakens'.
LEGO Assault on Hoth™ Base will challenge even the most skilled fan builders.
Experienced builders can recreate the Rebel Force’s Echo Base from Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back in an unbelievably detailed recreation of one of the most iconic scenes in the original Star Wars trilogy. The 2144-piece building set inspires fans to build their own scouting missions with the Snowspeeder, armed with twin spring-loaded shooters, and get back to base on the speeder bike to help Luke, Han and the other Rebel heroes. The modular design enables fans to customize their Rebel base configuration, including a Wampa cave and Wampa figure.
The set features LEGO minifigure versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Toryn Farr, Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles, K-3PO, and more. Available May 1st for $249.99.
I like the sounds of a modular base, minifigs sound nice. Don't think the spring loaded shooters can put me off this one. How challenging can the build really be though? It sounds interesting, a play set with shooters aimed at only the most skilled builders.. hmmm.
And if it is mostly reworked reissues then it's going to have its work cut out justifying the £200 price tag, as we'll be able to make direct, and fairly recent, comparisons with those various smaller sets combined together, all of which were widely available at sizable discounts due to being regular release sets - which this will not be.
With that said, it's still sight unseen, so my fingers remain firmly crossed for something impressive, but with the growing feeling that a 'meh' of slight disappointment might be on the cards.
No. But Lego even had me convinced for a short period that one appears, albeit briefly, in a single sequence. Then I eventually re-watched the movie, specifically looking for it.
It was all a LIE! A LIE, i tells ya'! Curses LEGO, those pieces could've gone towards an exploding gun emplacement, an extra minifig, or an imperial probe droid... y'know, something actually in the scene?
The modular design makes me think they know you need to buy two to make the base a good size because they used too many parts in the Wampa cave and Snowspeeder.
