    I like the X-wing color scheme, too...I dont think of halloween at all.
    I like it as well...very different (color wise) from anything in the Star Wars line.  First thing that came to mind was that it was like a fast and furious/street racer paint job.

    ^ Awesome!  

    I laughed pretty hard at that observation.  Random explosions abound!

    I wish there were asteroids and painful-to-watch transforming as well.  And lots of jump-cuts.  Yes, frenetic jump-cuts...

    The prices of these sets were released a while ago and they seem very expensive - 

    • 75099 Rey's Speeder - 193 pieces - £19.99, €29.99, $19.99
    • 75100 First Order Snowspeeder - 444 pieces - £39.99, €54.99, $39.99
    • 75101 First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter - 517 pieces - £59.99, €76.99, $69.99
    • 75102 Poe's X-wing Starfighter - 717 pieces - £69.99, €99.99, $79.99
    • 75103 First Order Transporter - 792 pieces - £79.99, €114.99, $89.99
    • 75104 Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle - 1004 pieces - £99.99, €129.99, $119.99
    • 75105 Millennium Falcon - 1332 pieces - £129.99, €164.99, $149.99
    £79.99 for 75103 - Lump of grey, seems ridiculous.


    With the current exchange rate we pay a lot more in Europe than in the US.

    Converting Rey's Speeder $19.99 would be € 17.99

    The MF would cost me in the US only € 135,02 over here it costs me € 30, - more!

    What is the idea behind this? Why has LEGO made such great differences between these prices?

    This is a topic which has been discussed so many times already over the years... :| Different position in the consumer market, US prices exclude sales tax, income differences etc... Yeah, it's really unfair, but I know that in the Netherlands at least, there are plenty of online stores which sell Lego at a standard 15% discount to the RRP / official Lego [email protected] prices. Still expensive, but at least a little more palatable.

    Luckily a family member will be in the US for a few months from December on. So we wait until then and have the sets shipped over here as a gift to avoid taxes in the Netherlands, which are also ridiculous high for this kind of stuff.

    Actually, I guess anyone owning the 7965 Millenium Falcon will probably be underwhelmed by the set being almost identical. 

    I like that I'd be able to build both if I wanted, but wouldn't get the new one if I had the previous one!

    Not being a huge SW fan to begin with, I can easily pass on these. However, some of the figures/pieces are must haves. But the sets aren't different enough to justify another version of it. Plus, with the other sets I need to get still, I think I could pass on these quite easily and hope for some reasonably priced figures down the road.

    Thanks to SumoLego this wave of Star Wars will be forever known to me as the Peanuts wave.

    Rey's speeder and the x-wing are the only two I'll buy for my collection.  Few of the others I may buy to part out but this is a mostly meh wave.
  • Final_SignFinal_Sign KentuckyMember Posts: 101
    I bet some of these "meh" sets will seem more interesting after we see the movie.  I'm hoping so at least.

  • OUWxGuesserOUWxGuesser Member Posts: 92
    I'm a sucker for the OT ships, so the X-Wing and the Tie are a must. I don't have a MF, so I'll throw that one on the list. Also like Rey's speeder. 

    The sleeper is the transporter.  Seems to be a love/hate relationship with most people- put me in the love category.  Minifigs are great, and I love the design that appears to be inspired by landing craft from WWII.   The top module appears to be the driver's position and overall, looks like something the first order slapped together to get the job done.  No fancy designs. It points to the First Order being strapped for cash in some regards, and developing no-nonsense craft for invasions.  Combined with the footage of the storm troopers presumably from within this vehicle, I'm super pumped for the set and to see this in action in the movie.  The snowspeeder is probably the biggest disappointment, although it also fits the bill as a cheap ship that could be made in quantity. 

    The biggest unknown for me is Kylo's shuttle.  Is this the same V-wing shuttle in the trailer? Did the design change to what we see now? What is the interior like?  Lots of unknowns, and I don't have that connection to it yet to justify getting it immediately (well, that and $$$ lol). 
  • MissKittyFantasticoMissKittyFantastico AustraliaMember Posts: 197
    @OUWxGuesser, it certainly looks to be the shuttle glimpsed in the trailer - the Lego one's wings have little downward panels on the lower tips of the 'wings' (they're folded horizontal in the photo here) that the trailer one seems to lack, but then again its wings are angled, not straight up.  Maybe a flight configuration like the old lambda shuttle, maybe the one we saw in the trailer is just transporting some regular officer and Kylo's personal shuttle is modified... who knows.  The extending wings mechanism adds interest, and the fully deployed wings look to have a pretty impressive span, but if they're fixed perpendicular and unable to tilt (which if they could, I'd really have expected that to be on the box cover since it just looks cooler), well, that's a weirdness.  Maybe they can tilt, and someone at Lego just thought upright looked more intimidating for the glory photo.

    I'll be getting it for the minifigs in any case, and obviously it's safe until the movie comes out and we maybe find out there's a reason (perhaps the old Empire split into two factions: one that rejected the Emperor and the Sith and all that Force junk as the reason for the old guard's downfall, and one that blamed all the effort they put into making the lambda shuttles so pretty and weld their ships' wings bolt upright permanently), but I suspect I'll be looking at it and mentally planning out the rebuild to add joints until then.
  • BobflipBobflip Member Posts: 538
    Doesn't look like they can tilt, as there's those plates at the bottom of each wing that would bump into the main section. It could be cool if they rotate forwards or backwards, but then the lasers/blasters/whatever would be aimed at the ground or the sky!
  • OUWxGuesserOUWxGuesser Member Posts: 92
    Ya.  It looks identical to this concept art:
    http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/lowlead/zMISC/artcrop.jpg

    I wonder if this was also a concept that didn't make the cut (or will we see it later?):

    Where is that C3P0 fig from?  Apologies if I missed it in the thread. 

    Also- $150 is steep for the MF. I'm not sure I'll snag it for that. If I can find it for 120/130 later in I might get it.

    I wish I hadn't looked at those pictures. A lot of it looks cool, but a lot of it looks bad.

     When I saw the lightsaber with the crossguard in the trailer, I said to myself, "here we go, this movie's going to be more show than substance."

    Then  I saw a video of Kevin Smith, who is a huge Star Wars fan,  speaking at Comicon about the new movie and he had eased my mind a little. 

     After seeing these new sets,  the doubts are coming back!

    Am I the only one that thinks this new villain actually looks really stupid?  I also think his name sounds stupid.  In my opinion, there hasn't been a really cool name in Star Wars since the first trilogy.

    Darth Vader. Cool. I'm pretty sure a "vader" isn't a real thing but it's still way cooler than Darth Maul. Han Solo. Cool. Luke Skywalker. Cool. Boba Fett. Cool.

    Darth Maul. Meh. Anakin Skywalker. Not bad until you decide to call him Annie all the time. Jango Fett. Silly.  Count Dooku? Sounds like something George Lucas does when he's on the toilet.

    Even the names of the planets in the originals are cooler!

    The only name I like from the "new" movies is Qui Gonn Jinn. He, and Darth Maul were also the best new characters but, in true Lucas style, they were killed  in the first movie.

    It seems to me that a lot of designs in this new new movie are inspired by the art of an artist known as Moebius. This is not a criticism. Moebius is friggin' awesome! I just find it interesting and wonder if I'm right. 

    Obviously, this new movie can still go either way. I hope they prove me wrong for doubting. 
  • BACbrixBACbrix AmericaMember Posts: 655
    ^ Kashyyyk, Kamino, Mustafar, and Utapau were all awesome planets with great names in the new movies IMO. Hoth, Endor, Yavin.... although iconic they all kind of suck in terms of creativity. Too simplistic. 
  • chuxtoyboxchuxtoybox Member Posts: 711
    Kashyyk's Chewie's homeworld, right? That was already created before eps 1-3 just not ever used in the original films. Sounds kind of Klingon.

     Kamino is something you wear and wasn't Mustafar in the Lion King. Or was it Aladdin?(I'm only playing)

    Hoth is a wicked cool name. Once again, what is a hoth? Don't know, but it definitely suits a planet of ice and snow. Yavin is kind of weird. Alderaan, another "realistic" name. Naboo? Put that in the same category as Dooku.

    Yeah I understand. Honestly I feel Darth Maul and Qui Gon got screwed over. Both characters could have been better if not in a sub par movie.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 13,057
    Not to be an apologist, but one really can't ignore that Christopher Lee was cast as the principle villian in Episode II.

    (Don't get me started that they completely wasted hin by making a ridiculously convoluted story, but that's why Maul didn't hang around.)

    I think you're letting our nostalgia from the Original Trilogy cloud your judgment, so to speak.  I don't think the new names or any better/worse than the originals.  Plus, there were only maybe 4 different planets across the Original Trilogy, while the prequels introduced a whole slew.  I don't think the new villain looks any more silly/foolish than any other villain really.  It's along the same line as Darth Vader if you think about it.

    This is my theory. Disney did not buy the multi million dollar movie rights for Star Wars to make one movie. To bring in all new characters and villains and technology for one movie is not possible. There will at least be one more after this if not two. So then the final question will be which of the three trilogies was the best?

    It was already confirmed a long, long time ago that there will be 2 more movies after Episode VII (Force Awakens), not to mention Rogue One and the other stand-alone films slated for release.

    He was the best thing about Episode 2.  Perfectly cast.  His taunts during the lightsaber battle were better than the swordplay (and he even pulled that off well despite some CGI enhancement).

    This  new MF is definitely going to help jack up the price of all the previous MFs. I don't have a LEGO MF at all but if I was suddenly nostalgic enough to buy one I would buy the last design before I bought this new one.

    The new rectangular dish. Is there really a legitimate reason in the story for it being changed or is it just another "let's change it just to " change it ideas.

    Chewbacca still looks good considering the fact that he's over 200 yrs old. No gray hair!

    Why would they replace it with a rectangular dish? It was the only one the maintenance crew could find and Lando's like "Just hurry up and put it on and maybe Captain Solo won't notice the difference!"?

    I doubt we'll get an answer ever really, likely just a change.  Maybe the rectangular dish gets better reception?  It's just a change, no real reason needed necessarily.
  • jonamokjonamok UKMember Posts: 20
    Also the rectangular dish looks like it sits lower to the ship, so less likely to get knocked off inside Death Star 3.

    Does the First Order TIE Fighter Pilot have a (new?) piece of a breathing mask? The tube bit in front of the torso doesn't seem printed to me.
