I hope I'm not too early for this. As a big fan of Thrawn, seeing his figure today made me feel like a little kid again! That new Rebels trailer opens up so much goodness for Lego to do! I am also dying to see the second wave of Rogue One sets after Christmas because we just know here will be a Vader, Tarkin, and HUGE fingers crossed for Ponda Baba and the good Doctor! I also read that a new Dagobah set is on the schedule. Here's hoping for an old Yoda and Jedi training Luke!

I'll be shocked if we don't get a Thrawn minifigure though. I'm betting he'll show up in next summer's wave.

The image of the figure was up on hoth bricks last week.

Jeremy also posted an article on the front page with a new Han for next year. Also a link to a list of 2017 sets that really doesn't say too much but is worth a look.

What's the level of confidence that we'll actually get a new Death Star? I'm itching to bust open my old Death Star and start building but if a new one is coming out I'm hesitant to break the seal until I at least see what the new one has to offer.

You waited this long.

99.99%. There are a few in-the-know Brickset and Eurobricks users who have actually seen ​the set.

I read on another forum that the price will be $499.99. It that rumor ends up being true, it will be the first $500 set since the UCS Falcon. Also, there's no current $400 Lego set right now. The next highest is $350 (Ghostbusters Firehouse, Helicarrier, and upcoming Disney Castle) so this is semi-new territory for Lego in regards to pricing.

Yeah, the rumor out there also is that it will be spherical on the outside, but open up to have separate rooms depicting various scenes - not unlike 10188.

At any rate, we'll have our answer in 2-3 weeks. With VIP access to two new sets starting on 9/15, we should have designer videos, etc by 8/15.

The rumor I heard is that it would be hemi-spherical...only half a sphere. Plated on one side and open on the other...similar to Orthanc.

I'm sure we have all read the discussion on eurobricks. ...and I'm also sure that we all know the info on eurobricks is accurate maybe about 50% of the time if we are lucky...often times much less. I guess we wait and see.

This is one of those that we know is coming at this point. I don't consider it a rumor anymore even though we haven't heard anything official. Now the question is what we end up getting.

I'm with Indy on this one :) How long have you held onto that thing without opening it? At this point, if you are hesitant you should wait and see...

Good call....I've got plenty of other unopened sets I could build in the meantime.

If it's the next UCS set up after the 75059 Death Star, then likely it'll hit around May 4th next year.

10 of them?

Good. Glad they said no.

^ Had they really been $2.00 apiece, I probably would have grabbed more than one also.

the only reason I grabbed 10 of them is to help people out on the forums. I really only want 1 for myself but I know how hard they are to find so if I can snag them for fellow scummers and friends then I will.

Its hard to judge from those pictures. I may be interested in the y-wing, hard to say. Unsure about the beach battle.
I likely don't need another skiff or landspeeder but you never know what kind of upgrades might be added from leaked/watermarked images.

The landspeeder looks like a complete pass. I think I may wait until the skiff goes down or on sale for the new Han hair and wee quay. The y wing looks like a y wing. I need to see the figures. The beach battle I agree. If this year has taught me anything, it's that if you have patience, you can always pick up sets cheaper.

Agree on both fronts. Though I am excited for the Y-Wing as it's the only core Rebel Alliance ship I don't have yet. Our local Wal Mart had placeholders in their Lego aisle for all the new Rogue One sets coming out this week but no items on the shelves yet. They did put out some Hasbro Black Series and 3.75 inch figures that I was able to pick up.

I dont know if there are any large versions of the images, I didnt see any. But it seemed like Moroff is coming in LEGO form?

I din't want to jump the gun. As soon as I say that someone screams "IT'S ONLY A PRELIMINARY IMAGE", but yes, that's what I see as well. There seem to be a lot of figures in that set. I wouldn't be surprised if the missing Saw Guerrera was one of them as well seeing that (as best one can make out) he's not in the beach attack set.

Pass on these. I'm happy with the land speeder from the cantina set and I also have the Skiff from a few years ago.

The y-wing mini has a pilot with I think is the grey uniform. I will probably pick up the u-wing for the pilot, but the other two do nothing for me. The battle packs should be nice - generic - army builders to pick up 2 at a time when they go one sale at TRU. Stormtroopers you could use a lot of - Deathtroopers? These will probably end up very cheap on bricklink like the first order tech.

Sounds nice, but are we getting only 4 instead of 6? Or a couple more are going to be revealed?

I feel like I haven't been interested in very many sets from recent waves lately...but some of these seem great. Guavian death gang (I really like the looks of the Guavian enforcers). I've always enjoyed the old Vaders Transformation set. For a small set it is fantastic. I may be interested in a rebel hanger set depending on the final model. I probably won't be interested in a quad jumper but you never know. It could be good.

A lot of good options there.
