Lego star wars sets (films 4,5 and 6)
Just at wanted to ask others opinion. It seems like lego are systematically retiring all sets from star wars 4,5 and 6. Ie death star and at-at recently.
Is it really worth getting the remaining ucs sets and if so do they have good future investment potential? To be fair I would only buy 1 of each and I'm not looking to sell but I'm curious anyway as to which ones would be the most sought sayer after retirement. I'm thinking that the following ucs sets slave, tie fighter, ewok village and sandcrawler will go this year.
I'm a huge starwars fan and would hate to miss out. Can't afford all now. Does anyone agree or disagree with my prediction that they will be gone soon?

For instance, there's another Death Star on the way. We don't know much about it, but we do know something is coming...
This is an interesting thought. Neither company would benefit from parting ways surely. Hell, there must be an entire generation of young uns that went to the force awakens and were surprised the ships weren't covered in studs. I'm old and barely remember a time without lego star wars. I can't imagine a world where star wars lego didn't exist and don't know if I want to!
With that said, my concern for 2015 was for retirement of Red Five, Ewok Village and Sandcrawler. So bought all 3 of those and waiting for upcoming May 4th to spring for a Slave-1 and TIE Fighter at the earliest, as I do not expect these to retire within 2016 anyways.
In terms of the rehashing/re-releasing; it's definitely prevalent for System-scale with about 3-4 rehashes maximum (Pod, Falcon, Slave-1, AT-AT, X-wing) at the moment. Which is same for themes like City.
But in terms of UCS level sets, only 1 has been rehashed and that was the Red Five X-wing with a 15 year spread between versions. Rumored but not confirmed next rehash is the Snowspeeder, which I so dearly pray is not true and will never happen.
(Or so i heard). ;o)
Overall I'm just so anti-rehash of anything, whether Lego, music, cars, clothes or movies.
I don't mind it for System scale, but I just think the UCS lines, Modulars, Creator Experts should be beyond this because we have so few each year and so many fresh ideas yet to be made that wasting an opportunity to do so is a shame.
Kids, and their crappy music! Stay off my lawn and keep down the racket!
