Anyhow back at it again synopsis for episode 16 and 17(if they keel going at this rate we will have a season Finale synopsis by the first week of February, provided they don't skip weeks)
Episode 16 : Legacy of Mandalore
Hoping to get her family to help the rebels, Sabine returns home with Kanan and Ezra, and finds herself embroiled in her family's power struggle for Mandalore.
Episode 17 : Through Imperial Eyes
Fearing that the Empire will soon discover the identity of a rebel spy, the Rebels launch a plan to rescue him before his capture.
So going by these synopsi next week we have the Zeb and Chopper vsimperial droid we saw in the trailer.
Then followed by a 2 part Sabine/Mandalore arc.
And then what I have been waiting for if I'm reading it right
The Rebels will be saving Kallus from the empire.
They're going for £20-£25 on ebay unbuilt, so not a bad price per piece. Having said that, I'm not sure my collection OCD could cope with buying just part of a set. #75175 is double the price per piece at RRP but I do prefer the model from a display point of view.
Anyone else laugh at Sabine complaining about the sand? 'It gets everywhere!'
Sorry Rex but I bet your glad Kanan isn't a youngling murdering, Rebel slaying,padawan betraying killer. :)
I liked this one too. I also like that they've been running the two-parters on a single night, at least for the premiere of the episode.
Maybe we'll get a Saw minifig through Rebels instead of through Rogue One. They could include a crazy, unkempt hairpiece for R1 Saw, and remove it for a bald Rebels Saw to cover both! Of course, I'd rather have Hondo...
That to me is a super discount for that set. I would get it immediately for that price. It is much better than what I see it for anywhere at the moment here in NL or on Amazon!
Hell! Buy one for me too for 53 quid (which is €61,65), and I will wire you the money plus what it costs to have it shipped to me in NL. Seems like a great bargain to me!
(Don't know though how expensive it is to ship something like an entire boxed set like that to NL!? And if it would still be a bargain, Amazon somehow can ship things either for free or much cheaper than you and me.)
Anyway, the Darth Vader that is included in this set looks awesome too!
He is the one on the left (with his helmet taken off)
The other Darth Vader, and Emperor Palpatine as well, are from #75093 the Death Star Final Duel. Unfortunately I do not own the wonderful #75159
Except for their capes they are identical to the ones in the Death Star. Neither have back printing, have the 'old fashioned' capes (the ones that easily fold and crinkle). Darth Vader from #75150 does have back printing, and the new soft fabric cape which you can leaf on when you put him inside the cockpit. Oooh the face is identical to the other one, and the helmet too of course! Plus Vader's Tie (which you aren't even that interested in) is a great ship too. If I were to get this set a second time I would just use Vader's Tie Advanced as the basis for designing a MOC Tie-Bomber, for which you definitely need that Tie-Fighter window and top hatch, plus so many other parts included in that set.
Sending a parcel from UK to NL is goig to cost 12 EUR at the very least I think. Should you pass by Gorinchem, Brickshop nl has #75150 for 73.69 EUR (33% off) currently. Their free shipping starts at 100 EUR otherwise it's another 4.95 for a PostNL delivery.
You really can't compare Amazon's cost to ship a parcel to what we individuals pay. Amazon has massive purchasing power over their shipping carriers to negociate very low rates. Amazon warehouses are scattered throughout Europe; to further reduce costs parcels going to another country are typically grouped and shipped to that country and then distributed locally by another carrier. For instance, a lot of my amazon UK orders are grouped and brought to Goes, the delivered to my home by a PostNL subcontractor.
Thanks for the info. Brickshop.nl still has 84 in stock.
With regard to Amazon: true. Like many other companies they have contracts with shipping carriers giving them much better rates than you and I get when we want to send a parcel.
Yet when I checked some financial news earlier today, I saw the GBP is falling against the € at the moment again.
Which means things from the UK will become cheaper for us here in the Euro zone.
I went to two physical stores in Belgium today (Fun.be and dreamland.be) to pick up a number of sets. Saw plenty of #75170 's on the shelves and there seems to be plenty of immediate online availability here (BE/NL) as well.
I's quite a big Rebels fan (got #75053 and #75048 as well as a fair number of other sets) and Thrawn fan (Tie Fighter FTW) but I find this set vastly overpriced at 45 euro.
I downloaded instructions for these sets when i started collecting rebels and bricklinked it the hard way, i.e. I identified the minimum number of sets with the necessary pieces (not available from PAB online) and bought those sets for parts! It was great fun and only cost me £114! :)
77ncaa, yeah those are the only ones I don't have yet. As far as I can tell the only difference is which minifig came with them. I had planned on buying a second Ghost microfighter and bricklink the additional parts to build one. Thos appear to be gone from shelves now, but I might still piece one together.
After seeing the Comicon Ghost and someone mentioned bricklinking one. I ended up doing just that. I was able to brick link one using only 1 seller for less than $15
Thanks for the insights, y'all!
Solid strider you are correct, I have thought about trying to piece those together as well. Still not sure though because I don't like the look of the TRU Ghost, it's a bit boxy for my tastes but if I do 1 I'll do both.
Another vote for a Rebels Base with AP-5 Minifig
I'd like to see some more sets this year besides the new Phantom as well. A base would be nice. Maybe a TIE Bomber, Interceptor or Defender. Going back to the earlier seasons the Imperial version of the Corusant Police Gunship used on Lothal, the carrier ship they steal (if I remember that's where AP5 came from), and Sabine Wren's speeder either in a bigger set or as a polybag. The mining guild TIE would also be a nice as well.
Who am I kidding if it is from Rebels I'd buy it......
and next month is a mini Ghost!
Could be a nice set IF the ship (a YT2400 freighter) is equal in size (in Lego) as the Ghost #75053 or even better: #75105 the Millennium Falcon. However, since it only has appeared in one episode, I doubt TLG will render it in 'proper' size if at all. By 'proper' size I mean, that like the MF it will feature an actual interior. I suppose in that respect the Ghost could be redesigned a little bigger, with more of an interior than the Lego model from 2014. It would not surprise me if TLG will release another version of the Ghost before making a lego set of this YT2400 modified freighter.
SW Rebels, it seems, is very popular now, plus the ship appeared in Rogue One, and I think there are many people who would like to have a set of the Ghost that missed out on the 2014 set, as the series was less well known then (compared to now). I remember reading lots of dismissive negative comments on the web, when Rebels just begun, by many Clone Wars fans who did not favour the Disney style of animation, did not like the story, characters etc. There is a new generation of kids that did not grow up with the Clone Wars and who all love Rebels.
Btw. where do you get those pictures from you always upload/attach to your posts on this topic? They are not from wookieepedia.com or starwars.com. Anyway, they are nice. Give a good schematic overview of the proportions and look of the vehicles.
There is no difference between that Kanan minifig (with the comic book), and the one from #75141 etc.
To my knowledge there are only two versions of that Kanan: with brown hair-piece; and the one in the ghost, with a black hairpiece.
The third version of Kanan is the one included in the Phantom Mark II #75170 with the mask, new season 3 outfit, and blind face.
It also appears in a SW app for transporting troops.
