I would have, but it seemed like something that qualified for another post; I'll keep that in mind for the future.Hey bud, for future reference: use the edit button.
But finally! Stormtroopers!
So according to our news (see below), the remaining figures for this year will be based on The Last Jedi; looks like we'll have to wait a while for a Han Solo figure. Chewbacca could be a possibility I guess, but it seems more likely that we'll get a new Rey figure and maybe a Knight of Ren or three, if not other new characters; Brickset has unnamed entries for four more figures, so unless it's too early for additional slots I'd say we've got four figures coming based on Last Jedi.
It'll be interesting to see how this affects the balance of hero-to-villain sets, which thus far I calculate as follows:
Cody=Grievous (don't know that they ever fought, but they could have, which is more than could be said for Cody and Jango to the best of my knowledge)
Poe=First Order Stormtrooper
Jyn Erso=Scout Trooper (didn't actually happen, but her figure recalls Endor Leia so it seems to fit)
Of course, it'd be nice if we could get a few more matchups, such as:
Darth Maul=Qui-Gon Jinn
Snowtrooper?=Leia (again, we're short on Imperial villains)
Grand Inquisitor=Kanan Jarrus
Savage Opress=Plo Koon/Kit Fisto (again, never actually happened)
Fifth Brother=Ezra Bridger
Boba Fett=Han Solo
Battle Droid=Gungan Soldier?
Seventh Sister=Rebels Ahsoka
Orson Krennic=Cassian Andor
Agent Kallus=Zeb Orrelios
Imperial Tank Driver (I know, I've harped on this one a ton)=Saw Gerrera
TIE Pilot/Imperial Ground Crew=Bodhi Rook
Count Dooku=Mace Windu
Dengar=Lando Calrissian (same movie, right?)
Gar Saxon=Sabine Wren
Pre Vizsla=Captain Rex
EDIT: Forgot a couple.
Dark Trooper/Imperial Sentry Droid=Chopper?
EXD-9=Season 3 Zeb/AP-5?
Rebels Maul=Season 3 Kanan
Eighth Brother=Season 3 Ezra (a little artistic license on my part, admittedly)
We've talked about smaller CCBS sets, ala Yoda or R2-D2, but what do folks think about larger sets for Star Wars? I'm thinking Wampa, Bendu, Rathtar; all those larger scale characters and creatures.
Huh...kinda died off there, didn't it? I suppose we've gone over most of the big character ideas for CCBS, and until we get more info about "The Last Jedi" figures there's not much more to be said about the 2017 line.
Had an idea that I brought up in the official Constraction thread in the News forum, but wanted to see what folks here thought: accessory packs. I figure that since the general consensus seems to be that too many monochrome figures are boring, and that it's unlikely Lego would release more than one figure per character, a reasonable solution would seem to be releasing Kanohi/Krana style packs including alternate head/helmet pieces, armor, and other accessories that could be used to modify the main figures. Among such solutions could be packs for modifying the main Stormtrooper into its various variants, such as Jumptroopers from Rebels, Snowtroopers, and so forth; you could also release a pack that includes Sabine Wren's different armor sets and any accessories that wouldn't be included with a main figure were it to be released.
Speaking of Sabine, got another Rebels set I think would be cool: the Clan Wren Stronghold, a Lego recreation of the building of the same name. You could include a full set of Rebels Mandalorians: Gar Saxon, his Super Commandos, Ursa Wren, Clan Wren Warriors, Fenn Rau, Sabine, and Tristan.
