    Many battle pack like sets for The Force Awakens and Star Wars Battlefront game.

    Carbon Freezing Chamber is the best one IMO, the droid pod actually looks pretty good this time, even though they made lots of them.

    However another Jedi interceptor? Come one… Looks like Obi-Wan as well. If they’re going to keep making these at least have new Jedi. I bought the one with Master Tiin and Piell awhile back because it actually had unique characters

    The MTT, AAT, Droid Tri-figter, Coruscant Police Gunship and AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon are listed as retiring soon. Bye bye PT/TCW sets :-/

    I’m actually thinking of ordering the Police Gunship online, I think I missed that one or just didn’t know about it. I like that set though…

    I think we will see PT at least in the later waves this year. It’s understandable that they have a lack of them for the upcoming wave as a new movie and video game came out, so that’s where all the hype from kids would be at. I bet TFA Lego sales grew tremendously last week. Battlefront recently came out as well, I remember when SWTOR and Force Unleashed came out they had those sets as well.

    However TCW sets may be a different tale, doubt we will see many of those anymore :/ but they really didn’t come up with many original ideas either which is a shame. Often for TCW we got the same kind of sets you would see in AOTC and ROTS waves, the only difference was the style of the mini figs really.

    I did like the unique Clone Wars sets like the Bounty Hunter shuttle with Bane and Moralo Eval.

    I think its good we have the new movie sets, While not completely new, the new X-Wing is different. The falcon is what is mostly reused. The TIE set is a two-seater. I mean, either way we’d be getting new Falcons, Xwings, and TIEs every other year anyway. I think Rogue One might give us something new.

    Retiring as in they will stop making them. They arent in many of the Walmarts/Targets by now but the Lego stores have been selling those for a while. The Police Gunship came out like 2 years ago, the anti Vehicle cannon did as well, but lasted longer since they were exclusives. I think the MTT and AAT were either late last year or early this year.

    My walmart has put some of the newer sets on sale, surprisingly. The First Order transport with Phasma is now $65 I think ($24 off?). Emperor’s Throne room is on discount, and I think the Imperial Shuttle Tyderium was.

    My Wal Mart had nothing today 😛 will use my gift cards when it gets some stock.

    I kind of want to get that Battle of Takodana set, the Kylo Ren figure is pretty cool and the Command Shuttle is a lot more money, also I just don’t like the command shuttle, it’s cool in the movie but the Lego wings are too big. Plus I just got the ROTJ Endor Shuttle.

    I think TCW needed more unique location/ scene sets similar to sets like the Mos Eisley Cantina, Carbon Freezing Chamber, Jabbas Palace, Final Duel, Palpatines office, Genosis Duel, etc. TCW had so many opportunities for things like that however they just never took advantage of it 😛 instead we just got slightly different version of things like Jedi Starfighters, AT-TE, Gunship, Tri-Fighters, Hellfire droid, Spider Droid, Droid Gunships, etc.

    The latest waves of Episode II and III sets were good. I shouldve gotten more but Im conflicted on what to do with my money.

    I’ve never been a fan of the episode two waves, idk something about them. I guess they’re usually just generic vehicles we always get. Episode 3 is often more creative plus the clones look better as does Anakin and Obi-Wan.

    But even though I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of TPM itself I do however really like the Legos it has. I’m thinking of getting the Flash Speeder from the latest wave.
