    You are right the T-14 Incom airspeeder is from an iconic film, featuring among other scenes, the iconic AT-AT surface attack of the hidden base on Hoth.
    You've confused me; aren't they T-47s, or is a T-14 an obscure variant?

    @TikiLuki  
    I am confused. Not sure if we disagree on anything. I wrote: "I think it is very well designed. It is a craft with a lot of tricky angles. They captured that all very well. It looks like a proper UCS set".
    But I also wrote: " Just from that pic, though the speeder looks a bit elongated, too long and not wide enough, compared to the actual SW film model", because I don't know if its dimensions of the wedge shaped vehicle are (way) off, but that is what it seemed like a little bit judging by that picture I saw, which is a photo of the box held at an slanted angle and/or camera lense that may distort the dimensions of the box-art, elongating it.
    Beyond that, I agree with you; the mechanical braking flaps look great.
    @TheBigLegoski My disagreement was with monkyby87 who said (s)he doesn't think the ship is iconic :)

    @thebiglegoski It didn't appear in the prequels and I don't think it was in clone wars animated series. Honestly The only place I've seen was the battlefront games, which are not Canon. For all I know the tank itself isn't canon. I just want to get an aayla secure with facial features that don't deal over exaggerated (not that the other one is that bad). The tank itself looks really small compared to their original, however it is going to be $30 which is the most reasonable price I have seen in a long time. Especially if it comes with aayla secura. This is probably one of the few sets I'll be buying as soon as it comes, the tank is good for its price and it will have phase 2 clone gunner. Secure would just be an extra plusmplus.

    The real question is will the Aayla Secura figure have cleavage ;)

    I bought a '71 Chevelle from a "reseller" of sorts and am very interested in a new Camaro, which I will buy directly from a Chevy dealer. 
    Wait, wait, wait.  I'm a Chevelle person and would never consider buying a puddle-jumping uni-body tinfoil Camaro.  Thems is fightin' words!

    Well, if you think about it, he had the immortal Force Ghost power, so he could possibly impregnate someone in ghost form, and not even need to freeze his sperm.  He could just "fill her with the force" so to speak.  So Rey could be his daughter.  Or possibly a granddaughter?

    At least I managed to confuse you in my confusion. ;-)
    I don't know how the seven turned into a one, and then switched places with four.
    ----------
    #75182 is a nice set, though the vehicle seems rather small for a tank, and it does not look like the turret with all the cannons will be able to swivel sideways. I like that blue Twi'lek!
    Don't ask me why, but that tank reminds me of 'Allo 'Allo! (the English comedy series) in which one of the Nazi officers, Lt. Gruber always refers to the armoured car he is driven around in as his 'little tank'.

    Pleasantly surprised with the two battle pack sets, but also a bit dissapointed that not all figs are equiped with 'proper' blasters, and still only have these stud-poppers instead. I am sure everyone wants to have a Bossk Minifig.

    Not sure what to think of #75180 Rathar Escape. I like the Guavian Death gang minifigs, but again why give them stud-poppers?! instead of some more accurate looking blasters (possibly a new Lego element would be nice). Anyway, kids will probably love this play set. It would have been nice if the Rafthars could actually gobble up a minifig, but that would possibly have made them too big to fit into the play set.

    I like most sets of the summer wave, and all minifigs. I am really curious about #75186 The Arrowhead. Also it contains Quarrie; the Mon Calamari who built a prototype B-wing starfighter on the remote planet Shantipole from SW Rebels. Would have been nice if this wave included a SW Rebels and Rogue One set as well.

    ps.
    I hope that the advent calender will contain at least one new and unique minifig. Can anyone confirm if that Imperial officer is indeed from  #75055    ?!?

    About the revealed sets: The Quadjumper has a knob on top to make it explode. My personal favorites are the Republic Fighter Tank and Darth Vader's Transformation, while at their low price points, the battle packs are pretty solid as well. The Freemaker sets aren't horrible but those price points could've been used for something better, be they AT-ACTs or the Finalizer. Rathtar Escape looks kinda bare and a bit messy, but will reserve judgement for now.

    I went to a talk last night from a film concept artist. Very interesting... Also the small point that amongst the films they worked on was Star Wars VII and VIII

    They couldn't say much about the SW films (especially Ep VIII), but when describing the sets being designed and Ep VIII they did mention "Luke's Village" a few times, and the beach where small creatures lived. So those who liked the ewoks might be in for a treat.. I assumed this to be from the island where Luke was seen at the end of Ep VII.

    It was also mentioned that Ep VIII filming was very good, controlled and planned well due to the director. So it won't be like Rogue One where the quite allot was re-shot and the ending changed from the original shoot.

    What was also interesting to hear was that it was great to be part of the story, but it was one of the least enjoyable jobs they have done, with regards to SW. This was due to the immense pressure everyone is under to make the movie how all the fans want it to be, perfect... The amount of work 75 variations of all sketches, and then some are selected and then another 75 based on the selected ones are done... People are not allowed to bring their own PC's on site, and are supplied equipment to use.. Thus images are kept under control, no leaks etc...

    Not Lego related (unless they are planning a Luke's Village set) but for SW fans a nice treat and makes it harder to wait till December..

    @TheBigLegoski - The Imperial Officer is from #75055 but the Major Brance minifigure is new (on the far left behind the gun turret). Still, an extremely disappointing Advent Calendar in my opinion.

    @Fireheart - I think the likelihood of a Jedi Temple based set is very high. I am advised that it will form a major part of The Last Jedi so would seem like a sensible set to release.

  • Waterjedi17Waterjedi17 Member Posts: 43
    @CapnRex101 Actually, they have different torsos. The officer that comes with the advent calendar has 4 columns of rank insignia squares (as seen here: http://www.fbtb.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/2017-02-18-05.06.11.jpg) whereas the older one in the star destroyer has 3 columns. Maybe it'll also end up in a 2018 set? 
  • CapnRex101CapnRex101 United KingdomAdministrator Posts: 2,261
    @Waterjedi17 - Good spot, I expect that torso will appear in another 2017 or 2018 set as you say.

    This 'Major Brance' looks exactly like the male resistance minifig from:
      #75103          First Order Transport
    except for his hair piece. Really cannot get excited about this minifig. I agree with you that based on the box-art of this advent calender, its contents seem rather lacklustre.

    The last SW advent calender (2016) #75146  was so good that I bought it twice (when I was able to scoop it up at a nice discount), it has the silver protocol droid, which looks wonderful and is my personal favourite minifig from that set, and a great selection of generic trooper minifigs (so called 'armybuilder' minifigs) such as a storm- & snowtrooper, Bespin guard, Imperial Navy trooper etc. So all in all IMO a good minifig selection (except for Luke Skywalker, but that is because I already have 'Death Star Final Dual' #75093 (nice set!), as well as plenty of Luke minifigs from other ROTJ sets). Many of the micro ship builds from 2016 were also so incredibly well designed, however to me the minifigs are still what determines how much I like/value the advent calenders. The 2016 AC set contained 10 minifigs/characters, where as the 2017 AC set only 8, and to me most of these are less desirable too.

    -----------

    With regard to a future Jedi temple set. I hope TLG will design a proper, and preferably, a large building for this set. I think, too often, whenever a SW set based on a location is designed instead of a vehicle, it tends to range from: 'somewhat underwhelming' to 'extremely disappointing', as well as incredibly overpriced. These sets are examples of what I mean:
     #75139           Battle on Takodana        €69,99
     #75148           Encounter on Jaku          €79,99
     #75171           Battle on Scarif               €69,99
    (These are Dutch prices over at Lego [email protected]; and yes those prices are ridiculous! Especially even more so when compared to the German Lego [email protected] prices)

    I hope TLG will design a Jedi temple, just like they are able to do for other themes such as: Castle, Ninjago, LOTR/the Hobbit, Batman etc. that actually is a full on building with multiple floors, rooms, passages etc. instead of just a door that leads nowhere, with a collapsible tree, and/or wall, and present that as a 'building' or representation of a location from any of the films.
    I am not such a big fan of ep. VII, but Maz Kanata's castle was the perfect opportunity for TLG to design a big beautiful and fun set with lots of minifigs, and modular style attention to detail regarding architectural design, as well as play features, such as: the basement room where Luke's lightsaber is kept and Rey has her force epiphany; and the room where all characters lounge, eat, chat, spy, play (card) games, play, listen, and dance to music, etc. But #75139 is a far cry from that, I hope someone over at TLG reads this and does something with it, and designs a Jedi temple, as well as other future SW sets which do justice to what they suppose to represent. Plenty of SW fans would e.g. be drooling over a well designed Dagobah set featuring Joda's jungle swamp tree house. A set that includes play features such as a cave for Luke to enter to face his fears, and gimmicks for kids so they can re-enact Luke lifting R2-D2 and stones using the force, and doing acrobatics etc. (I admit this Kenner Dagobah playset from the early 80s comes to mind). TLG did a much nicer job with the last Mos Eisley Cantina set #75052 they designed, than they did with the 3 sets I listed here above, and was compared to those sets much more reasonably priced too.
    Sure if you have the bricks you can MOC many things, but TLG can still focus more on high quality set design too.

    Just finished building the new sand skiff #75174. Initially I passed on the set when it first came out because the last skiff was so good, but this one is truly an massive improvement, the rounded front and the brown railings are excellent, yet just like its predecessor it suffers from one awful design floor, it's butt...

    the square rear end just looks silly, more so with this latest version given the greatly improved curved surround. It is an issue easily rectified for the princely sum of 8 pence a and the purchase of 2 3x3 reddish brown curved corners, but come on Lego designers should have picked up on that. But that one flaw aside it is a really great set and a worthy upgrade. Very nice figures as well :)

    Had some time to kill today, so I went ahead and cross referenced the box sizes listed in the database for The Last Jedi sets with currently available sets and their respective box sizes. Here's what I got:

    #75176 $30 USD (same box size as the Phantom)
    #75177 $50 USD ('' as Quadjumper)
    #75179 $80 USD (" as Resistance X-Wing)

    #75187 $100 USD (this one was harder to find, but matches the box size of Tyderium shuttle)
    #75188 $110-120 USD (" as Clone Turbo Tank)
    #75189 $130-140 USD (" as Imp. Assault Carrier)
    #75190 $140-150 USD (' as Millennium Falcon) 

    Obviously, these prices aren't final and the database doesn't list a source for the box sizes, so please take these guesses with a grain of salt.
