I've just heard that there's a Cloud City UCS set due out this year, I'm probably late to the party on that one but it sounds like it's going to be $500 and wondered if anyone has heard any other news about it?

They did a cloud city before. It’s worth a fortune because it was utter shit and no one bought it. It’s got some exclusive minifigs as well that go for silly money.

I hope if they do make it again it’s nothing like the first one. One of the worst lego sets I have ever seen.
WANTED: The following speederbikes. I would like them boxed but open and complete. I need:

Meccano stickered bike
Pbp stickered bilogo
Danish stickered bilogo
Special offer uk bilogo

Yes, there is a a roomer doing the rounds that Cloud City will be coming our way this year, and 500 is the price tag.

I can't find the list (on brickiest somewhere) but there are a few big D2C sets rumored to be heading our way:

Imperial Star Destroyer (200)
Cloud City (500)
Avengers Infinity Wars (200)
Hogwarts Castle (500)

No idea if that is true, no leaked images or details, there are a few people claiming to match set numbers to descriptions and prices, but that doesn't mean much right now.

Personally i think Cloud City is a still a stretch, mainly because it is quite dull, and Death Star aside Playsets don't sell well at this price point. But who knows, the potential for some much needed figure updates (Luke Bespin, Leia Bespin, Lando etc.) is there, but really beyond the carbo chamber and the 'I am your father' fight scene, there isn't really much to put in a set - but we will see.

My main worry if all that is true is we will have three sets out there in the 500+ price point and that is setting a new ceiling for Lego which will allow them to increase all their prices below, and sets are already too expensive (thank god for Amazon and their regular 30% off).

Anyway, mostly bought from Amazon on the afore mentioned discounted price, just working my way through most of the Last Jedi sets. Despite early reviews being negative and so forth, i am finding i rather like them. The new AT-AT is great, i love the industrial, chunkier look and the head even manages to look menacing (far better than the last AT-AT to me). The speeder is a great set, lovely vehicle. Oddly the small shuttle was a fun build with good play features. The Island hut is nice, very detailed inside. Haven't build the Star Destroyer yet, but will get there...

Thanks for all the info and I've got the Island hut coming for my boy and I picked up the little set with a couple of Jawas and and sand person in it for the figs. I have the original Cloud City set and quite like it (did you hear that Mr Shifter :lol: ). It didn't come with any of the figs that were meant to be in there but had a cloud car thrown in and the set was complete and boxed for $100 so I was happy enough with it. I'm curious to see what the do with it if they do make a UCS version of it but you're right about the price point getting a bit to high for some of these sets, they become to out of my reach for what I want to pay.

I will post in the general sales area as well but have these DC/Marvel Lego cover comics to offload as well. Just after cost for these (£7 per comic) but not willing to split up so all or nothing. But as always, open to offers.
