GRogall has more pictures for us: this time, clean, large official set images. See the rest and discuss in the rumors thread on Eurobricks.
I’m a little behind on this; real life and duties on Eurobricks have been getting in the way. GRogall on EB has posted these clean, official shots of the boxes for some of the sets in this year’s summer wave. I’m not a huge fan of the Old Republic sets, but we’ll see how they sell. LEGO EU sets don’t have a great history. Jabba’s Palace is clearly the flagship set of this wave for OT fans, though, and I’m looking forward to some of the updated minifigs, even if the price isn’t that great.
On EB, members have been discussing how expensive 10179 is nowadays. Some of them have shown us how they Bricklink the individual parts to put one together with significant savings. jasonsmith, however, has gone the extra mile and installed a complete system of lighting in his Falcon. That’s not unheard of, but what is impressive is that he took the time to make this a completely purist solution, using only lights made by LEGO. Just look at the light streaming out onto the landing struts and out of the boarding hatch: combined with jasonsmith’s excellent photography, it gives an incredible effect to the complete look of the Falcon.
