Maybe Lucy blue or Peppermint Patty green...
At least a lot of white bricks.....and a hugely inflated disney RRP.
I guess around 1500 bricks and a RRP of 220€, like medieval market village...
wait, that one wasn't 220€?
Interesting @iso3200, thanks.
I'd really like to see an updated UCS Snowspeeder this year. The original version has a certain amount of old-school 'charm' but it does look rather dated compared to the new X-Wing and Slave 1. That would be a first day purchase for me :-)
if iso3200 is correct, it would be an unsurprisingly LEGO thing to do
It depends how many Power Functions they manage to add to either of them... just think a UCS set with adjustable flaps and harpoon, and maybe LEDs in the cannon. I loved my old Kenner version, although the sound effects weren't that pleasant to listen to if I recall correctly!
However, I would prefer a UCS Snowspeeder, so fingers crossed!
I don't see why a snowspeeder would be a good choice if it was hoth based I would pick a big base playset or a AT-AT, think a snowspeeder would sell as well as the b-wing.
Do we have any dates for these sets?
EV?!!? enlighten me please, cause I am lost right now.
I'd much rather see a large playset based on one of the new planets featured in the new film.
Just reporting what I was fed - as sometimes other posters chime in and corroborate info. I was fishing for Hoth and was told that a UCS snowspeeder was coming. Same source that told me about the DA 6 months early and also the UCS Tie for May 4th - so I believe what I was told. Whether this means it's a big standalone Snowspeeder or whether its going to be a super rendition in a Hoth playset remains to be seen.
I was told things have moved around on the release schedules - 75098 is currently slotted for May 2016. This could tie up with the Ghostbusters HQ being the big release for Jan - which I definitely wasn't told about. No name for the new modular but street price of £119.95, which is good. Not sure where a SW D2C October set fits into all this though.
Also have been confirmed that the Death Star will be updated. New set number and minifigs but no other info. I was volunteered this - I hadn't asked about DS at all. This ties up with what has been previously reported on Eurobricks.
So is the 119.95 price good for a modular? I only know USD at $160 these days. How different is that?
Personally, I think as a SW vehicle it's just as iconic as the X-Wing or Tie Fighter. (Not quite a Slave 1, Falcon or Star Destroyer, but an excellent display piece.)
Didn't get around to building the original version before the aftermarket took over.
Thanks for the info @iso3200, so do we think there will not be another d2c this year? I don't have anything against a d2c snowspeender although we have had one before unlike the base. A Death Star with updated figures is also on my wish list so that's good news for me although a bit worried at what the new price would be.
Better have a special Death Star Aunt Beru!
So if they're planning a snowspeeder, a hoth set and a death star, currently only one out of the three is showing with a slot on the website - and I was told May for this one.
I'd be more than happy to look like a total bell end though ;-) All three sets would be good after all.
And that is the $250 set according to brickset which would fit best with a Hoth base, we know the death star would be more and I would guess that a snowspeeder would be less. Guess its back to waiting.
Either way, I would expect the Ewok Village to be a goner in the new year.
And I'm going to grab another UCS Sandcrawler, just in case. (Although it's a vehicle and a UCS, it feels more like a playset to me...)

Details of the 2016 are available online. In particular, there's a Snowspeeder (75144) and a 'Hoth Attack' (75138) so we may be in for a snowy winter after all! There isn't any price quoted for the Snowspeeder, so it's still anyone's guess as to the size of it.
I doubt any of us would be rushing out for a UCS Landspeeder...
Mainly I really want a UCS A-Wing.
If it's a UCS I'd be getting it day one for sure.
We typically get, what, two UCS sets per year? I don't see why one of those can't be sacrificed to give some of those blocky old models a much-needed update.
