Walmart had the 20th Anniversary display out yesterday. Picked up the Slave I (for Zuckuss) & Snowspeeder (for Lando, whom I don't have minifig of). Don't need or want the rest.

it's a very strange assortment of the Lego to release with the Anniversary sets. the only one that I'm interested in is the Slave 1. the rest of the stuff is meh at best. I'm liking the look of the Resistance stuff but those "action battle" sets looks weird and hold very little appeal to me. easy passes as is the Starkiller Base set

Ordered all of them except for the action battle sets, I'll wait until those go on clearance.

Plan on eventually picking up the red Resistance Tie, Slave 1, and Snowspeeder. Might get the Hoth action sets if I ever see them on clearance or a good reduced price.

Saw them all except Slave-1 at Target today. Didn’t pull the trigger on any. None said get me today.

Pretty sure that's what he's saying -- they had all of the sets (including 20th anniversary) except for Slave I.

I found them on Target.com and ordered for pickup at a local store. I went to get them with no trouble, but went back to check to see if they were on the floor yet, and nowhere to be found. I asked a guy that was working in the department, and after a little perusing on his handheld device, he said that they had them but there was no place scheduled to put them. So, it never ceases to amaze me that stores get brand new items, and don't put them out for whatever reason.

Over the last couple of days I've been to six or so Targets and have seen such a wide variety of LSW20 sets, but not once have I seen all of them in one place or a dedicated display like the one shown on the front page.

Where are the rebelscum Lego affiliate links? I plan on getting the Tantive IV and maybe also the Slave 1 20th anniversary set for double VIP points on May the 4th.

Asking here because I am having an epic fail trying to find any shop@home links on the main page.

We don't have an ad button/banner/graphic up. You need to go to the articles/news posts about the sets you are looking for.

It's probably easier to post in here.

Thanks for sharing this. I missed out on the last OT A-Wing and have been wanting one to go with my Rebellion/Resistance fighters.

I see they are giving Kylo Ren's shuttle another go.

I'm interested to see how the new Millennium Falcon will compare with the last couple of releases. It's around 20 pieces more than the 75105 (TFA) version.

Now that the new teaser trailer is out I'd hazard a guess that this is a different shuttle to the TFA one.

Zori and new R5. Beautiful!


Edited by admin - no photos of leaks. You're free to discuss them but please do not post the pics on the Rebelscum forums.

That black packaging is really sharp. Almost as nice as the current 20th anniversary packaging.

Had higher hopes for the Yoda bust. Those eyes are just weird...

I easily could have missed hearing about this but I was surprised that the AT-ST is the Mandalorian set.

Looks like I will be saving lots of money, none of those scream "buy me!" but agree that the packaging is pretty sharp. There will probably some spoiler filled post movies sets that will interest me though

They pulled the photos by the time I tried to see this.

I might get the new Kylo Ren shuttle after skipping the poorly executed one from TFA. The A-Wing and Mandalorian sets are the other two that interest me. Otherwise I am waiting for the next UCS set.

ALL the bad guy figures are in the shuttle: Ren, 2 Knights of Ren, Sith Trooper, Stormtrooper, the new bad General I can't think of his name now - and from the looks of it they just removed the 'extra' bits of the bottom of the wings and it's the same model - of course probably at least $20 more. Thank God for ebay. I'll probably pick up the new imperial and the knights. You know there will be a Sith Trooper in a BP in January guaranteed.

KNEW that was going to happen! I just checked the Instagram site by chance this morning and got to the images. Good thing I saved them to look at closely when I get home.

I like the A-Wing. I think that's the one I'll pick up. The green looks really nice. That's one thing this assortmen has going for it, color. Too many Force Awakens, Rogue One, and Last Jedi sets were just masses of gray. The red really pops on that speeder and that Y-Wing. I usually will pick up whatever set is cheapest on Force Friday. I really liked the Resistance Transport Pod from Last Jedi. Turning that wheel on the back to spin the cannon on the side is so addicting and turning that wheel on the side to fire missiles is also fun.

Interesting that the Y-wing, piloted by Zorri Bliss, is known as a Resistance Y-wing. Makes me wonder if she is a merc or a spy.

Royally peeved, because she is a Princess?

It's odd that there hasn't been an updated Leia minifig. I wonder if the reason is all LEGO or has something to do with Disney/LFL.

Yep. My pun was very deliberate. It’s super annoying! Especially as they made a cartoon version of her Episode 8 look for their ad campaigns...

From the Rebelscum front page:

Typically the lifespan of a LEGO set is around two years - or three-ish for Ultimate Collector Series sets - and collectors have had to rely on experienced guesswork and sites like Retiring Sets and the retiring soon page at LEGO.com.

This time around Rebelscum has been given a list of retirement dates, and while they haven't come from an official source we feel comfortable declaring them as accurate and truthful.

Damn Jeremy! That headline nearly gave me a heart attack when I saw it on the home page just now. My first thought was that Lego is discontinuing Star Wars sets altogether. :wtf:

I've had a couple of similar comments. So you're not the only one.
