    Episode 3 MINIs???

    My son was looking at his latest Lego catalog or whatever that bimonthly mailer is and found a MINI version of Anakin's EP3 Jedi Starfighter. There's that new promo that Lego is running called Brickmaster or something like that where you spend $40 and you get some modeling software and a random small set of Legos every month or two. One of the sets is supposed to be a Starfighter MINI.

    This makes me wonder if Lego will bring them back later this year or sometime next year. We did get sets from all 5 previous movies (only 1 from EP1) so we may get more for EP3.

    I'll try to take a pic of it and post it later.

    I noticed that as well.

    They put the "hard to find" tag next to it.

    Well it is "hard to find"......

    IT HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED YET.....

    Maybe the hard to find was for another set they were going to include. And then at the last minute changed what set was to originally be released?

    its all marketing when it comes to the "hard to find" tag...LEGO prolly put it there to entise you into purchasing the brickmaster thing

    Thanks for putting that up, Caesar. Now I don't have to lug out my crappy camera and do all that rigamerole.

    I'm wondering if by "HTF" they mean that the sets will be random, not just in what you get each month but that different people will get totally different sets all throughout the subscription period. I'm pretty partial to the MINIs, so I'm hoping this will be available without having to sign up for the program.

    I can see a MINI Clone attack tank (whatever that big one on Kashyyyk is called), Corporate Alliance Droid, and ARC ship (looks like an X-Wing) as well.

    I would like to see the mini line continue not only with EPIII, but a few EPI & II as well as some more OTC in there...

    Has anyone joined the brickmaster program? I was thinking about it for the 8 year old - but have yet to commit...

    I think I'll pass on the BrickMaster club. There isn't enough to interest me in forking over $39.99. Aside from the club magazine, let us see what you get:

    LEGO Model Design Software
    New LEGO set every two months (total $20 value)
    Bionicle Comic (meh)
    LEGOLAND California Child's Admission Ticket

    I think it would be a nice gift for kids though. It would be fun looking forward to a new mystery set every other month. And if you're planning on a family vacation to LEGOLAND CA then the free ticket is a nice bonus.

    I really like the MINIs, especially once they go one clearance.

    I wouldn't mind seeing some more with a fifth bonus set.

    I agree entirely - especially on the bonus set. I was sorry to see the last wave did not include that feature.
