    I love the vintage stuff. The very first lego set i ever had was a racing set something like that one. A big grey plate with a building and little indy style cars. I was maybe 5 or 6 I think? 1986/87ish

    Y'know, I've been off and on about the Minecraft stuff, but the pig house is at least cute, and the battle-pack sized sets continue to at least be interesting small additions to the line. Didn't expect an underwater one - it's a shame the BPs are basically only ever going to get Steve/Alex for player minifigs.

    I don't agree. I think the X-Wing looks cool.

    I disagree, too. In fact, I love every single LEGO set ever produced! After all, I am a LEGO loyalist.

    That's because @Arkimus Prime thinks that there not like the regular sized versions and they look like the mini-figured versions. Lego is scaling them down and making it less expensive while maintaining the OG look from Episodes 4-6 and to have a smaller footprint.

    I'm waiting for the eventual Imperial Shuttle and Vader's Tie Advanced if it gets the green light.

    No, all those awful looking studs are a problem.

    So in @Arkimus Prime's eyes, you want the the clean cut movie version right (studless)?

    I think the more pieces you put in the set, the price will increase.
