    I'd love for Lego to do a 2,000 piece Black Pearl. That would be my dream set.

    that would be cool bcuz we could get a lot of minifigs due to just the amount of people that were on that ship, and i'd prob switch that one in for the QA bcuz it is a really nice ship, Lego just made it way to small and hopefully then like the Destiny's Bounty it would be multi-tiered with a deck and underside, closed in Cpts quarters and some really nice features

    Really disappointed with this year’s DC Superhero offerings. Lackluster Batman offerings mostly. Would kill for things like Doom Patrol with their bus, Blue Beetle/Booster Gold with the Beetle, S.T.R.I.P.E. to go with Stargirl, etc...

    move been thinking way too much about this lately. I’m glad we got some lesser known characters I. The CMf set though. Always liked Metamorpho and never thought they’d release him.

    That would be fantastic.

    I'm also disappointed with DC 2020.

    @Arduous: The top photo looks like one of the grabber arms from a claw machine. Seems like it’s grabbed a nice big block of cheese with guns on it.

    I absolutely love them...

    I'm also glad the Night Buzzard included the last 2 remaining Knights of Ren.

    Plus the Resistance Transporter Is that from Galaxy's Edge?

    Ugh, the AAT is using a similar chubby front end from the previous release. That was the one thing that kept me from buying the old model.
    But... Ah, I guess I'll get it. Don't want to pass up on something Prequel/Clone Wars related, and Ahsoka is a huge plus, too.

    That aside, these sets are looking pretty great. But I'll be passing on the rest. Just no room and no interest.

    It seems so. Is it weird that I'm more excited for a boxy ship than anything else they've made in the last few years?

    Also. That Final Duel set.

    It's so similar, that I first thought it was a leak error.
    This seems to me like something happened internally between lego/disney - the original rumors mentioned a final duel set based off of Ep.9.

    @SPLIT LIP, what do you think about these sets? At least the ones Scarlet Knight listed.

    They look pretty good. Glad the AAT is CW colours and even comes with Ahsoka (though the reused Shaak Ti headpiece is ill-fitting IMO) and a 501st trooper with her helmet, but the tank design itself is poor. The big empty space at the front is awful. Grievous’s Starfighter looks alright, as does Anakin’s interceptor but I’m not seeing where the extra piece count goes. Looks almost identical to previous versions. It’s also weird to get an almost straight re-release of the throne room duel, although I suppose it’s bigger?

    Don’t care about any of the ST stuff.

    Relieved these are out so people can stop the speculation.

    The gap in the AAT's front is correct but it's way too big. The proportions are all over the place.
    EDIT: $40 USD for the AAT is ludicrous.

    Honestly, I am more interested in that Clone "Battle Pack" coming in August more than anything.

    I wouldn’t say the gap is correct. Yes there’s a small recess in the curve but nothing like that big cut out:

    upload_2020-6-1_10-15-30.jpeg

    The curve shouldn’t just stop the way it does. And like you said the proportions are all over the place. The blue sections really should’ve been the flatter, large wedge curves seen on the older AATs:

    upload_2020-6-1_10-16-51.jpeg

    Those would’ve fit the size and proportions much better.

    Looks decent, but I would have rather had it be one of those Smaller $25-$30 duel sets they have been doing recently.
