LEGO Life-Sized Luke Skywalker Model Revealed for SDCC 2017

LEGO has revealed another life-sized model for San Diego Comic Con 2017 with old Luke Skywalker and I feel this one will be very popular with the crowds. This model stands 6 feet tall and consists of 36,743 pieces. Luke joins the Flash and Thor as some of the models fans can take pictures of/with at SDCC.

Did a LEGO Designer Hint at the Rumored LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)?

Here’s something coming out of the Brickset Forums yesterday regarding the highly rumored and anticipated updated LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). I saw it yesterday but there was plenty of San Diego Comic Con 2017 news and planning that I held off on reporting it.

If you’re familiar with the set listings on Brickset, you would sometimes see something called “Bricklist Notes” in which LEGO designers can put notes into sets they have designed to give some information about the creative process. Hans Burkhard Schlömer, who is on the LEGO Star Wars design team, has worked previous sets including the Millennium Falcon (75105) and UCS sets such as the Slave I and the Assault on Hoth (75098) has given an very interesting note on a set that was released this year. In the Republic Fighter Tank (75182) listing, Hans wrote:

Clones need a ride too! I did this set as a quick side-project while working on a much, much, much, much, much, much larger set which is going to be announced on September 1st 2017.

If you’re a Star Wars fan, you would know that September 1 is the planned date for Star Wars Force Friday II event for The Last Jedi. I’m not a rocket scientist but that sounds like a big ol’ hint for the Millennium Falcon, doesn’t it? Or it could just be that reported UCS BB-8 (75187) that is supposedly coming as well.

We’ll all see together in about one and a half months when all the new LEGO Star Wars sets are revealed during Force Friday II. What do you guys think this mysterious September 1 set will be?

LEGO Star Wars 2018 Rumored Sets

Star Wars Force Friday II

I’ve reported on some rumored 2018 sets for various themes already and Sir von Lego is back again with details for LEGO Star Wars.. He has mentioned five by their potential set names along with four unnamed sets for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Tatooine Battle Pack (75198) – Includes two Jawas, Tusken Raider, Astro-Mech, and a vehicle.

General Grievous Combat Speeder (75199) – Includes General Grievous, Mace Windu, and dark blue and grey Combat Speeder.

Yoda’s Hut (75208) – Includes Yoda, Luke, R2-D2.

Boba Fett (75533) – Buildable Figure.

Darth Vader (75534) – Buildable Figure. We already have the 75111 set so it’ll be interesting to see what this one is. Maybe this one is based on Rogue One with the redder eye lens?

There’s also mention of Coleman Trebor in another Battle Pack and Ki-Adi Mundi, possibly in the same set.
