The original #10179 rigging and trans-blue tiled engine build always looked a bit clunky to me and was to my mind one of the worst aspects of the original.
Something along the lines of the modifications Scottishdave on E.B. put together would be good as that is probably one of the best mods I've seen for the original set.
Now back to where we were.
Speaking of which someone there said you got close with the piece count @CM4S
(And it is 15,838, get your facts straight!)
At what point does one figure out that this really isn't a discussion, it's just rampant speculation with sprinkled bits of secondary 'evidence'. And explosions. And graveyards of destroyed SW vehicles.
And the designer video was primary evidence.
What we really mean is 'direct' vs. 'circumstantial' evidence.
Direct evidence would be a press release including words to this effect: "The Lego Group proudly announces the UCS Millenium Falcon available in November 2017."
Circumstantial evidence would be Lego designers playing with cardboard cut outs and you implying that it is related to a future set release.
Its evidence of a Minecraft D2C and a Star Wars D2C
Given this fits with the eurobricks rumour of a new UCS MF with figures based around this scene and the Minecraft D2C we have seen in a press release I think its safe to assume the next design video will not be a UCS cardboard space slug.
Or it could just be two designers playing with cardboard cut-outs.
And if the 'rumour' is based on two designers playing with carboard cut-outs, that's speculation.
We had a coming soon page on Lego.com
We had a clue in the designer video.
At what point will you stop disrupting this discussion and allow us to talk about what could well be the biggest Lego set ever.
If you want to post silly pictures then there is an off topic section to this forum.
Its also true to say its only like that because that is what the moderators allow it to be. @Huw @CapnRex101 @drdavewatford @Matthew (If they allowed meme's then it would be full of them too).
That's the minifigure lineup for #4504 (sans an 'Assault on Hoth' snowtrooper).
Frankly, I think the only information that is not clearly speculation is the screenshot of the Lego Retail Store, and the [email protected] search page.
(This thread ought to be renamed: 'UCS MF Speculation and Circumstantial Evidence')
And thank you for sharing the identities of the moderators. I think I now have direct evidence to identify them.
And as the Forum Fuzz, shouldn't you be busy chastising those members posting false rumors? Doesn't that defeat the discussion in this thread?
Thanks mate and I say mate because you have brought a lot to this forum and its much appreciated by me and I am sure a lot of other bricksetters too.
(It's just as likely the designer video has to do with the miniature Space Slug set. Who knows?)
Or there will be a few people going back and forth saying they are right and we shouldn't do this or that.
The reason that I stay on this forum and come back day after day is because I know that when I leave, I know that I will leave pleased after reading what people have to say about their hobby.
This thread is the natural successor to the best thread to ever exist on any message board since the dawn of time (or at least the Internet). Nothing quite beats the heady mix of rampant speculation, real money, and ABS :).
Or just put it on shelves in the stores without doing a press release, and watch the fan forums explode.
So, this #75187 BB-8 might dash any hopes for a new UCS MF this year. Or not.
Which is crazy to me. I really enjoyed the UCS TIE.
Made too many of them or just not super popular?
"No. Brickset forums are good for a laugh every now and then, but useless if you want real information."
There's enough real information all over the internet, but relaxed 'just letting it all hang out' banter is hard to find.
Except for here :-)
