      The D2C 75397 Jabba’s Sail Barge will be released in October.

    Nothing really catches my eye this time. A lot of them are rehashed. That I already have.

    • Håkan April 19, 2024, 6:01 PM

      I guess the most iconic vehicles and scenes are constant sellers.

  • nanomar April 16, 2024, 9:08 PM

    I like the podrace set and commander cody. I hope to be able to get both.

    I’m not a huge fan of brickheadz, but these are cool. And I like the droideka.
