I get the sense that Hoth will still be around after whatever this new set is gets released.
(How much would we all love a UCS scale Cantina?)
The theory is based off of the assumption that the retirement of AoH occurred earlier than planned, but I don't think that assumption is THAT far fetched looking at the recent history of other UCS sets, including other playsets like Ewok Village.
I'm a big believer in the box silhouette theory - first MF (and it happened), then ISD - i'm convinced we'll see an ISD this year.
Regurgitated confabulation of #8038 Battle of Endor; #9489 Endor Battle Pack; #7139 Ewok Attack and the uninspired parts of #10236 Ewok Village.
Yay! (Not really.)
It still fits fine, as the $200 UCS is expected to be the May the 4th UCS release, and the $500 CC release is expected to be the August/Fall UCS release.
However, before people get their hopes up, I know that rumors of the May the 4th release being a new Y-wing have been going around, and unless new information has come out in the last week or so that I haven't seen yet, those rumors have been pretty baseless speculation of the 'I really want a new Y-Wing UCS' variety. This isn't to say that it WON'T be a Y-wing, as I don't know of any other information that would point to it being anything else right now, just that, as far as I know, we just don't really know anything about it at all. (Again, this could be out of date if new information has surfaced somewhere over the last couple of days. :) )
this way collectors can purchase sections at a time instead of one big purchase.
if it is like the deathstar 2, a doll house then no. If its like the deathstar 1,an awesome model then yes.
My money would be on it being a doll house but I am not convinced yet that it will be cloud city.
A) Be angry it is a remake of a UCS they already made 10+ years ago
B) Be angry it is a model from a prequel or sequel that I'm also super angry about
C) Be angry it is a playset when it should've been a ship
D) Be angry it somehow avoided the above categories but it costs more than the $25 I feel it should cost.
I agree with B & C but without the anger management issues, D is a bit subjective, I don't have the imagination for E and try not to care about F :-P
They'll never make another UCS model of non-OT stuff will they? I'm discounting the MF as it's a dual purpose build.
