Why is 75192 successor of 10179 but 10240 not of 7191 ?

The same applies to UCS Snowspeeder.

Thanks in advance for explanation.

    Best guess would be that 75192 has been officially stated to be a successor (in designer vid). But I couldn't honestly tell you for certain.

    Could it be that the naming is important here? 10179 and 75192 have both the name Millennium Falcon during 10240 and 7191 have different names...?

    The production dates and subject matter should be quite sufficient for anyone to connect the dots.

    Sure, but it still does not answer my question...

    #7191 is just any one of the countless X-Wings whereas #10240 is labelled as Luke's.

    There's only one Millennium Falcon and so #70192 can only be a successor to #10179.

    Wouldn't R2-D2's presence in #7191 suggest that it's also meant to represent Luke's X-Wing? Sure, its designation may not be specifically called out in the name of the set, but that seems a bit like splitting hairs.

    ^ There probably isn't a right answer, but you have my warped version.  An R2 unit included with an X-Wing designed to accommodate one wouldn't necessarily mean it's Luke's.  ;)

    Why do people read far too much into things? It's the successor because Lego say it is. Or it isn't the successor because Lego haven't said it is. What more is there to it? If you try to understand the thinking of the Lego group you will waste a lot of time that you could otherwise have spent building.

    ^ It' just a bit of fun Jamie.  Youll be telling us Market Street's a real Modular next.

    True, but it's not just an R2 unit, it's R2-D2 specifically. LEGO had already shown by that point that they were able to print different patterns to represent different astromech droids, so it's not like there's any reason to think they only used R2-D2 as a placeholder. It's also possible that the droid was identified by name in a catalog; I don't have any catalogs handy to verify.

    7191 is Red Five - it has five red stripes on the trailing edge of each upper stabiliser.  As to the question - I'd say, at the time, it was simply to AVOID openly stating it was a rehash.  Things are a bit different with the Falcon though...
