    Not happy. Though I do like that we're still getting fresh OT sets in the midst of the TFA explosion.

    1) Hoth Attack?!?, Really?, after we're getting a frankly unneeded and somewhat unwanted entire UCS Hoth Base this Fall? Unless this is based on the cut-scene of the Wampas attacking the rebel base... that i'd like.

    2) Carbon Freeze Chamber... NOOOOO!... this drastically reduces that we'll ever see a UCS Cloud City in the same vein of the Death Star. Granted that's always been a fevered dream, but it would have been so awesome. I suppose it just would've been too expensive. But i'd say this set makes it dead in the water. Then again, maybe this will be a modular set that will combine with future sets?, kinds like Jabba's Palace. That would totally redeem TLG.

    3) Droid Escape Pod... eh. Gotta have some low priced sets I suppose. How about a vacuum-metal R2 and 3PO, that would be cool.

    Some people on other forums are hoping it will be a combination of sets that combine together ala rancor pit and Jabbas Palace like you mention.

    Though, if I'm being honest with myself, the Carbon freeze chamber is really the only exciting piece of Cloud City that would make a good Lego set. The rest is just random rooms/hallways...I guess a landing platform would be an ok feature but they couldn't make it large enough to hold even a non-UCS falcon unless it was a severely under scaled version and I wouldn't want that.

    The rest of what we see in cloud city makes for a pretty boring playset.

    Hopefully it has the torture chamber/prison cells and a gantry/window.

    Very happy to see we are getting a Bespin set. A lot of people on this forum wanted Lego sets based on Bespin scenes. If it is just the freezing chamber, maybe Lego will make other Bespin sets later that can interlock with this one.

    Either way, we wanted Lego Bespin and we are getting Lego Bespin.

    Hey Hasbro…..Start taking notes

    Hopefully the carbon freeze chamber is is at least 1000 pieces with 8-10 minifigs.
    At least it shows that Lego is thinking about Cloud City.
    Gorge, guzzle and wench, for tomorrow we get gutted.

    I just want a battle pack with Lando, Vader, luke and A stormtrooper.

    I know it won't happen but I'd buy it.
