LEGO 2015
« on: July 23, 2014, 03:15 AM »
MTV has revealed the first 2015 LEGO Star Wars set, the Wookiee Gunship

Quote
75084 Wookiee Gunship
Protect Wullffwarro and his Jedi friend, Kanan Jarrus, with the powerful LEGOฎ Star Wars Wookiee Gunship. As featured in the Star Wars: Rebels animated TV series, this amazing battle-ready craft has loads of weapons to see off any invading force, like movable front cannons and an elevating top cannon. When the action really heats up, raise the wings into attack mode and unleash the never-before-seen rapid shooters! If you run low on ammo, open the side hatches to access the spare supply, then lower the rear bay door and unload the mobile gun post. Includes 4 minifigures with assorted weapons: Wullffwarro, Kanan Jarrus and 2 Wookiees. Available January 2015, 570 pieces, $69.99.

I'm guessing this is something from the Rebels cartoon?

Cool. 

I hope they find a way to re-release the Wookiee Catamaran someday.  This is an old set I've never been able to track down for a reasonable price.

+1

Would love to get that vehicle, as well as the Wookiee "helicopter" (or what ever that vehicle is called)

Rumored Spring 2015 Lineup

Microfighters:
- ARC-170 Starfighter
- Vulture Droid
- Snowspeeder
- AT-AT
- Republic Gunship
- Homing Spider Droid

System Sets:
- Geonosis Troopers
- Shadow Troopers
- AAT
- T-16 Skyhopper

Rebels Sets:
- Imperial Troop Transport
- Ezra’s Speeder Bike
- TIE Advanced Prototype
- AT-DP
- Wookiee Gunship

I'm digging this lineup, only one official OT set, which gives me more time to pick up the OT heavy lineup just released. I'll probably buy a bunch of the Imperial Troop Transport sets.

Made the mistake of going to a TRU today but I did see some of the new sets. I almost snagged the Shadow Troopers and Stormtrooper Dropship sets but ended up passing for now. I saw a few of the new Microfighters and the T-16 too.

These will be hard to find for a few weeks but by February they should be everywhere.

Put together my UCS Slave I set today - great build, lots of interesting building techniques making it a fun/engaging build. Once it's together and in the stand, it is certainly an impressive addition to my Lego Star Wars collection.

I definitely recommend getting this set, especially if you don't already have a Lego version of this iconic vehicle.

Definitely going to have to get the Shuttle Tyderium.  I've missed prior versions of the shuttle and its easily one of my favorite SW ships.  Nice that Lego brings these classic ships back out every few years in upgraded designs to boot.

Got a postcard in the mail today hyping May the 4th deals that will be taking place online and in LEGO Stores. Spend $75, get a free Admiral Yularen minifig (ANH version). Free LEGO ANH poster with any purchase (the same one they posted on Facebook a while back. UCS TIE Fighter officially on sale. "Select sets" on sale, a list of which should leak out sometime soon if it hasn't already. Judging from years past though it will be lame stuff like magnets.

I'd think that would be the end of the UCS Falcon rumors for now...

At that current rate of conversion (if my stupid self is reading the currency rate thing on Google correctly), Poe's X-Wing would cost around 120 bucks in US dollars.  That is A LOT for a Lego set containing 717 pieces.  The general going rate for a Lego set in recent years has been 0.10/per piece, and this set would average out at nearly 17 cents per piece.  Usually you can see a bit of a markup when there are relatively unique pieces included (such as with the Dewback or the Hulk/Gorilla Grodd/Wampa "big minifigures"), but I can't imagine what they would/could include with that piece count that would justify a 120 buck price.

Although, if they include about 20 minifigures, I may change my tune.  ;D
