    @bandit778
    When I follow your link I don't get to see the commercial you wanted to point out and share.
    I assume this is the clip you meant to link to:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBh0hgP8wWk

    Any way, thank you for the info, and nice commercial!
    (I hope this link does work?!?)

    It's probably also worth noting the Japanese trailer was released. It's pretty similar to the trailer released a couple weeks ago but has a few new scenes.

    @TheBigLegoski
    Sorry if the link didn't work, first time trying to link a web page and thought it worked (even logged out and tried it).
    But hey, you found it anyway. :)

    Daisy is looking great so far, my fave new character. In that particular short snippet, her facial expression going from scared to frozen lily white was good. Even better when it's in gif form. I'm dying with anticipation for another 42 days!

    I have complete faith in JJ Abrams at this point in his career outside of Star Trek Into Darkness.  But besides that, my childhood was satiated with the prequel trilogy and so far it looks like my adulthood will be full of these movies and spinoffs until I drop dead and that is fine by me!!  It's weird but I honestly think we can trust Disney to pump out quality star wars flicks every year or so.  

    Anyways, I got tickets to one of the marathons outside Philadelphia for $50 per and the start time on the ticket says 4 AM.....On top of all that, I live outside Boston so I need to figure out timing a drive down 95 to pick up a college friend in NJ on Wednesday, somehow sleeping, and then driving an hour or so into PA to catch the marathon.  And for all this I'll probably only get a cheap looking lanyard or something from Regal.  But it will be ABSOLUTELY worth it.

    Plus I get to drive home Friday, work a chaotic weekend at the theater I work at and then catch it in IMAX with the fam on Sunday!
    Just make sure you shower before you leave!
    That cinema will probably reek by Episode IV.

    I like the final US trailer more than this latest one. The tempo and music of that one got me far more excited. I like the few new scenes, but the pacing just feels off.

    Oi!
    I just noticed an article on a new minifig from TFA on the frontpage of brickset got tossed.
    Must have been legal issues I guess.
    I already forgot the name of the minifigure. It is a fig with burgundy red dwarf/kiddie legs, a torso with azure blue arms, don't remember the colour of the torso (dark grey or dark blue?! or some other colour), but it had very nice printing. And the minifig had a specially moulded pink head, with silver goggles with cute funny eyes printed on them. It apparently is a space pirate. And he/she? is also shown on the movie poster standing on the left side next to R2-D2.

    @TheBigLegoski answering to what you said at the top, I think that maybe the not-red and different version of the TIE Fighter could not belong to Special Forces. Because the set you can buy atm is from First Order Special Forces, so in the movie I think we will see also different TIEs. About Kylo Ren's shuttle, I didn't buy it because from the first moment I saw too many inaccuracies and I didn't like it so much.

    @scoiltreasa
    Thanks for the info
     
    @Nuruodo
    I thought I distinguished two types of Tie-fighters in the trailer/teasers. Check out all the bits of this and the other ones if you like. It looks like the First Order employs both the Special Forces two-seater Tie as well as the 'old' one. What do you think?

    I don't really follow all the SW fan sites and blogs where more 'insider' info might be available, so I have no idea if there are multiple Imperial factions, or whether other groups also use the OT Tie-fighter etc. I will have to wait and see when the film premières in the cinema.

    The only two sites I on a somewhat regular basis take a peek at are: starwars.com and wookieepedia.

    I bought #75104 Kylo Ren's Shuttle with 20% for €106, but I just saw that it is on offer at Amazon.fr for €87,45  which is kind of a bummer as I could have gotten it with shipping included still even cheaper if I had waited. But ooh well...
    Nonetheless, even though it is not very movie accurate, because of how the wings fold up, but do not fold out, as well as other details, I still like the set a lot, and I enjoyed building it. And on top of that it comes with a lot of really great minifigs. Plus the ship begs to get MOD'ed or totally MOC'ed.

    Have just finished the new TFA X-Wing and Tie Fighter, and to be honest I thought both were over priced for what you get, both should have been £50 sets like previous versions. Yes the colours are jazzed up and figures are great, but not worth the £70 and £60 retail price. Just feel like with all the hype surrounding the new film the prices have been inflated just to cash in. I also have the Snowspeeder and Rey's Speeder which I like, just hoping the more expensive sets offer a little more value for money.

    If you put Maz Kanata into Facebook Search you should see the Lego figure again. Looks pretty cool

    I don't know for sure why the article was removed, but I left a comment suggesting they at least remove the image from being visible from the front page to avoid spoiling the film for people. The character has barely been revealed yet and might not be before the film comes out.

    @TheBigLegoski I think it's not about factions, just about sections of the Imperial Navy. So Special Forces will get a two-seats TIE and standard Starfighter Forces a single-seat one, or something similar. However the differences are very slight, I think. 

    About the shuttle, I don't know, I'm curious about it and with that offer... Maybe it could be worth it... But I only like sets that are very loyal to original models, so...

    Our first look at Maz Kanata on screen.  Sorry  for quality  it's a screen shot from a YouTube video. Apparently  it's from  Disney  channel. 
    It seems  like the minifigure  we saw  while back is quite accurate  (well the head at least  :) )

    Some pics of the sets from next year are on Hoth bricks; both "Battle on Takodana" and the resistance one. Just beware there may be potential spoilers.

    Now they're on Brickset. Not really any huge spoilers; it's just confirmed that Jar-Jar Binks is NOT Kylo Ren xD

    Don't be so sure.  It may be a clever ruse.
