    I really like the new X-wing and Tie Fighter. The Tie finally has a grey circle around where the body connects to the wing. I like the overall look of it and the price is right.

    The X-wing foils or whatever those rod things are called look great. Much better than the last version. I also appreciate actual landing gear. They also finally did a Minifig scale version without elastics. My only real complaint is the lack of detail in the front of the engines.

    I dig it. Hope one day they do a Slave I like this.

    Three questions:

    1. WTF?

    2. WTF?

    3. I don't get it, what's the joke.

    If you have a Big Lots nearby you might be able to find them discounted there.

    In case you guys didn't know this is now live as a GWP. You have to spend $150+ so ordering a set for $149.99 won't cut it. Problem is pickings are pretty slim now after Black Friday / Cyber Monday. I consider myself pretty lucky to have nabbed an Elf Club House during VIP weekend (still backordered but might get here before Christmas, maybe).

    That's Plane Costume Girl. Here's the full lineup, it's been announced now so I'm not using spoiler tags.

    I'll have to try and find that centaur

    Thank you for reintroducing me to the clearly far superior Gnajbricks. I mean come on, has Jang ever done a music video?

    The rear of the new one looks really bad, though the wings are cleaner. The nose also looks really dumb. The only thing I really like more are the cannons. They're not really any more accurate, I just like the design. I feel like they easily could've made more accurate engine intakes with those four bare studs just sitting in there.

    No it isn't. That's someone else impersonating Jang, who doesn't even look or sound like Jang. It's a meme that's done in poor taste without permission, and I'm not sure what the deal is with bringing it up here. He's mentioned this guy on his actual Youtube channels a number of times now, and he's asked people (politely) to stop cross-linking the impersonator back to him.

    Yeah, they could have easily added the T-shaped engine detail on the X-Wing but they probably wanted to keep the parts count and price point down to a certain limit to make the set as affordable as possible. I'll have to experiment with some of my own spare parts.

    As for the Slave I, they did make a shrunken down version of it in the Betrayal at Cloud City set.

    I finally pulled the trigger on the Death Star playset before it sold out completely (plus I think Lego is going to retire the set for good by the end of this year). I've been eyeing it since 2016 but couldn't swing it but the last double VIP Points and GWP promotions swayed me.
