Second thoughts, they will most probably center around the new movies of which I have no interest. :cry:

I can see this will annoy certain collectors. I personally love it!
A minty white Luke, Leia and Stormtrooper that won't cost me hundreds of pounds.
I'm picking myself up a set, and any future sets.

I’m looking forward to getting my boys a set of MOCs that they can open for a start

That said I’ve already seen a post on one of the large Facebook groups stating it’s another sad day for the hobby. Get a fucking grip people :lol:
