Minifigs are great and it's nice the have the original TIE Advanced back.
But those LEGO A-Wings are well oversized?
The A-Wing looks good, and I believe it is scaled really well. Just Like Vader's Tie Advanced, it is a small one seater interstellar-fighter craft. I think the did all the proportions rather good for a Lego set, judging from the photo's.
Still a lot of stickers though..
if I remember the review from the brickshow, the A-wing has stickers but the tie advanced only has printed pieces?
I don't know how much it will cost? At least not in your or my country. The Brickset-page on #75150 says $89,99 and £79,99 and yes that is definitely not cheap. I think all SW Lego sets are hugely inflated. I found myself still ready to buy some of them, though usually not at TLG's RRP.
However I did not enter the price into the equation when I said how wonderful I feel this set looks. Regardless of price, it is a nice set. Is the RRP fair? At €90 or a €100 ; I think not! €75 would be IMO a 'nice' or 'fair' RRP, and I guess I will be prepared to still buy it when it is a little more expensive.
@als-1971 - Officially it's the 1st June in the UK.
Amazon already have most of them available for pre-order.
I would really like to hear from one who has both to compare the two and recommend or not if it really is worth buying the newer version despite of owning the UCS?
Upon opening the box and dumping the parts, it seemed very few and looked like a simple build. The build process was only so-so with nothing complex or interesting techniques used. But boy was the finished model of Grievous impressive! It honestly blew me away at how awesome he looked when fully posed in a fighting stance with all 4 lightsabers positioned just so. Best sub-$30 i've spent on a set in a long while.
I also have #10186 Grievous sitting in the closet still sealed, so being inspired by #75112, I pulled it out to give it a good mulling over as to whether or not I should crack the seals. But upon review, the UCS model seemed less dynamic because the posing is so static plus his stance is a bit awkward looking. Then small details like his tiny hands, crude face/head build in comparison to the molded head of #75112, etc. kinda pushed the pendulum back to just keeping it sealed and enjoying the smaller version. Though of course, the build experience on #10186 should exceed the former by a mile.
Not sure on anyone else's take on #75112, but that's just my feedback on it versus UCS Grievous #10186.
It looks better in person than the box picture makes it.
I am surprised and disappointed that other news sources have been quite so cavalier in posting them as LEGO will feel the same way about this as they did about the Star Wars: The Force Awakens leaks last year and are likely to impose significant penalties upon those websites which do choose to post them.
Thank you for your understanding.
eclipse fighter takes the cake with the price being almost 50% more than the US price. (if you consider the difference in value between currencies it's actually probably over 50%)
and I thought this one may have been a good deal...
"My Life as a Trash Compactor Monster"
"The Admiral Piett Story - Standing Firmus in the Face of Danger"
"Look at the Size of that Thing: In the Cockpit with Wedge Antilles"
I forget the rules for canon/non-canon.
I'm experiencing enough scope creep on my Lego sets without my Star Wars want list suddenly exploding!
See @MaffyD, no scope creep ;)
If you are an old school fan I would consider the Final Dual with Vader and Palpatine as it will be leaving us soon I would expect. Also use the main site shopping links to find the best deals and watch for people to post deals they find on the forums to stretch your Lego buying power.
2 more days to buy tickets for @Legoboy's raffle. #75098 is one of the prizes, so the perfect opportunity to add a Tauntaun to your collection!
I can also recommend 75096 Sith Infiltrator. It's overpriced, but it's so large that you still feel like you get your money's worth.
