I'm excited for next year's D2Cs, from what I've heard they're all super cool. Except one, I don't care for the theme at all, but I'm sure some people will like it.
Big BB-8 would be pretty cool. It wouldn't be able to roll though, which sucks.
The label that does that for me is LEGO. Any other label is icing on the cake.
You can't say this and not expound at least a little bit further.
Let us put this back onto Star Wars as the UCS theme.
I now have to say UCS Cloud City.
But I mean really big.
6000+ pieces to get the scale of the Darth Vader banquet, the Carbonite freezing of Han Solo with Boba Fett and the Luke/Darth duel scene underneath the city.
It doesn't have to be Star Wars, on the poster etc., etc., so I'd like a Deep Sea Submarine in UCS. 60092 is wonderful (I have three) but two or three times the size with extra detail? Fantastic.
That, or a UCS portaloo from 60073.
I'll miss me.
That is an interesting list. I don't know cavegod except for a good reputation in general and his astonishing AT-AT.
I would be happy if they went this route, then it would at least be a new entry to the UCS line and not a damned rehash exactly. I would not be similarly happy if they did it with the Falcon, unless it was obviously and widely different from the existing one.
The top half of the new Star Destroyers look like they've been completely redone. The underside was still pretty similar. If anything it did look like they had slightly different proportions from the older ones, as in not being quite as long from front to back but being a little wider at the back from side to side.
That aside are we likely to see anymore Lego busts? How long since the last one was released.
And as someone who would love a #10179 surely a TFA Falcon is crying out to be the next UCS.
2001: Darth Maul #10018
2002: Yoda #7194
2008: Grievous #10186
2012: R2-D2 #10225
I personally consider it one. I think that one, Darth Maul, Yoda, and General Grievous are all UCS sets but sort of a subtheme of them.
Reminds me of the show 'Equalizer' from the '80's...
That being said, while I didn't buy Red Five (I built the origional, the rerelease did nothing for me), a rerelease UCS MF would be a day one purchase for me.
For SW UCS I stand by my #1 pick - the Nebulon Escort Frigate
As a more realistic pick I would go with - UCS AT-AT
$100 bucks says we see a UCS AT-AT within at most 3 years
It would be much like the difference between the excellent Heli-carrier submitted to Ideas and the lame version that Lego produced.
It will be interesting to see what Lego does come up with for USC, especially since TFA didn't produce any new iconic vehicles. The MF re-release is about the only route they could go! I think a USC BB-8 is a natural but I think a TIE bomber would be in the works a few years after the current TIE is retired.
You'll notice the absence of real money - it is indeed empty.
Make it an Imp Star Deuce. :)
Lego has already started to do UCS remakes, but I feel like they should shift their focus in a new direction before we get 3 UCS X-wings or 3 UCS Sandcrawlers or 3 UCS Tie Fighters or 4 UCS Death Stars.
Most of the remakes have big improvements on their previous counterpart, but say 5-10 years from now what will they really be able to improve? Seems they have thrown out the idea of producing an $800 Millenium Falcon.
As remakes go, that is begging to be done - coming up to 14 years old. It's a while since we've had a huge UCS set (but where to put it?)
I'd still like to see an Ultimate Collectors A-Wing. Excited At the prospect of a new UCS snow speeder (T-47 Airspeeder)
