I can’t believe that in all these years LEGO never released a Bantha! (Although I have seen some pretty cool brick-built Banthas built by LEGO fans).

I like the idea of having all the movie material accessible in one game. And I’m also curious about the possible new sets. We may even get some cool mashups.

It might be interesting with a Young Obi-Wan, Lando Calrissian and some playful Bantahing!…

Anyhow, that Banthas (apparently I had it misspelled) haven’t appeared in Lego form might possibly not be so strange, since elephants also only appeared in one or two sets…

If this game gives us a Bantha I’m all for it. Some people criticize that Lego keeps rehashing old stuff, but as long as we get updated and improved versions, I think that’s good. The classic movies are still classic, and I’m glad they keep going back to make the sets better. As far as the game, I may give it a try.

I still have the older Lego star wars games , for Nintendo d’s and 3ds. I don’t play video games a lot. I guess because I’m not good at it and I rather be creative on building something out of Lego. If I do decide to get a new game system what system is the best one out there.

Lego games are pretty cool. They don’t take up much time. It’s more like just for entertainment. They are not as serious as some of the more involved games. You can build with lego and enjoy lego themed games. They are not mutually exclusive.

As far as a gaming system, it really depends on what you want to play and how. Do you play games at home? Or do you prefer mobility? Do you have a computer or laptop with the specs to play the games you want? Or do you want a dedicated gaming platform? Do you play games casually, or you want to get more involved?

Find gamers with similar interest as yours and see what games they play and what platforms they use. You may discover you don’t even need a gaming system. There are a bunch of free and paid gaming apps for phones and tablets you can check out.

PC… I’m not a a gamer, but maybe this one might be a good one for me to give a go, and give my recently upgraded PC something to put it to task. 😀

Hmm, I wonder what the system requirements will be. Serious computer games tend to demand a lot from your sandwich nowadays…

That’s always a good point to keep in mind. I’m running an i7 cpu, ( I decided to splurge, not wanting to upgrade for a while.) but I wonder what video card it might ask for. Well, we’ll know at some point.

Thanks for all of the advice. I might just stay with my 3 ds system and play it instead. For what it costs for a game system these days , I could just get a new Lego set. You never know Temptation might get the better of me. Lol!

Except for the consoles, the games themselves tend to cost quite a bit, as well…
