(And that's what she said.)
I do like the flaps and the angles though.
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?
Does this mean that Qui-Gon is technically God as he is nicking his abilities. I would have stayed with religion if at the Sermon of the Mount Jesus had said:
"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for reason to kill me Judas I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over 40 days and nights. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my people go now that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will forgive you."
Please be proud of me I didn't use all caps.
"The new aayla secura doesnt have a clone wars face."
that took me way to long to work out.
and... that nice....
now saying all that.
*look deep in to @Jackad7 eyes* What Set She Going To Be In!!!!!
I have to say this is probably my favourite set of all of them.
For those into Force Awakens (are we calling it the ST yet?), #75166 looks amazing too.
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.
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.
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..
@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.
#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.
i wouldn't mind a Sith one either!
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 :)
This post would be better if I could get the damn photo to load up.... Dooh
..."he'll" probably get it
And it arrived today.. weighing in at 23KG, containing 6500 pieces, and 103cm tall. An original Lego made store display, 1 of 33 produced.
Meet Darth Vader:
Note the White Boba Fett to give it some size comparison, as I was amazed at actually how big he is.
Really happy with this and it will take prime position in the collection.
No really though that is probably one of the coolest Lego builds I have ever seen.
^ Lepin.. :)
Apparently it was a direct order to Lego from a 33 store toy chain in Belgium, 1 per store.
(was trying to think of a suitable pun but couldn't come up with anything. Over to the usual suspects).
