    I think a congratulatory teaser from TLG would be appropriate ;)

    Right, it must be coming at 5 - that's when the first one dropped.

    I'm guessing that all but confirms it....now I await the in depth analysis of the parts in the video

    *heavy sighing* still no hint, but they did say this:

    Hmmm, so still not a confirmation of another ucs falcon. Definitely very intriguing. I doubt freeze framing will reveal much though.

    More to the point, how the hell do you get the url of a tweet on an iPad?

    Anyone still think it's going to be a Creator Expert set?

    Fair Play. I just seen your tweet. Surely someone thought about naming the file something different

    Given that BB8 is in there, to me that confirms that it is indeed the falcon. What other 6000+ piece set would BB8 be included in?

    That's clearly the Star Destroyer trash/garbage from ESB.  I now have something I can 'whoosh' my Slave 1 through!

    I make two red spheres; this is the second:

    Best guess I have is that they look quite like the helmets of Bala-Tik's crew (Guavians?), but that seems unlikely.
    The other thing they resemble would be a scaled down version of the Falcon's escape pods. (Shown in a photo from Force Awakens: Incredible Cross Sections - I can post the pic I mean when I get home.

    I'm not at all convinced of that.  There seems to be a consistent level of inattentiveness when it comes to the digital aspects of set information.

    The marketing people are secretive and dodgy, but the tech-folk just put stuff out there - like the set number splash page at [email protected]

    It amazes me that there haven't been any leaks with the set already clearly in production.  (Maybe they're only manufacturing them in the basement of the Lego House?)

    To me; this confirms that it is the UCS MF more than BB-8

    I would say that it is just a red 1x1 round plate.


    And this looks like it could be the start to the cockpit. It is 10 across, fitting the new mold for the windshield piece in the #70616 ice tank. I would hope that the back area there would not be blocked off and still have access to the interior (If there is one).

    When will they learn. Posting something that gives away a badly kept secret then changing it doesn't remove it from the internet. LEGO - think before you post, not after. 2 out of 3 teasers so far have given away more than what was apparently meant to be given.

    And, there's also the 'resellers' to factor into this; #41999 sold 20,000 very quickly and that was for a Technic set...

    the 20,000 sold quickly because everyone was quick flipping it.  Announcing ahead of time there would only be 20,000 created a market that the set itself would never have enjoyed.  I myself bought/sold 10-12 of them over the few weeks it was available.  

    Ask that guy in England how buying up 1,000 of them worked out for him....

    ^ Yep. I flipped 8 #41999, I will be doing no such thing with this set.

    If they are $800, squatting on 10 to flip will be an expensive venture.
