May 4th Promo Minifigure Revealed

First Order Heavy Armor Stormtrooper, free with $50 purchase at LEGO Stores and shop.lego.com. I'm reading that the armor is a different printing than the one in the First Order battle pack out right now.

There isn't a Star Wars Easter polybag at Target this year, is there?

Nope, the exclusive polybags are the snowman from Frozen and a fire truck.

A fire truck with a garbage can on fire. Yup, hot garbage. Nice companion piece to their porta-John set from last year.

Rogue One Sets Leaked (SPOILERS)

Looks like a bunch of overpriced garbage with a severe lack of minifigures.

What I don't understand is why we're getting so many new designs, new concepts that were never seen in the OT when this is set right before the OT begins...

That being said - I think the minifigure list at the bottom of that post is just the unique figures, there will undoubtedly be multiples of the troopers in each of these sets. Look at the floating tank set - the main picture shows two troopers but the minifigure chart only shows two. I would be VERY shocked if we didn't get Rogue One themed Rebels and Empire battle packs in 2017 to even further bolster the trooper figures.

The set I'm looking forward to seeing the most is the new Death Star set.

HQ images of Rogue One sets (SPOILERS)

The AT-ST is the only must-buy for me. I'll probably pick up a lot more after the movie comes out though.

I don't mind that at all.  I like the designs.   What I don't get, is that we get these new designs adjacent to the OT, but jump 30 years into the future and the amazing new ships we got are...   an X-Wing,... and a TIE Fighter.   Personally, I think a couple piles of concept art got mixed up between TFA and Rogue One meetings.
