December 6 – First Order Transporter
I have a good feeling about this. I think in years to come, this will prove to be the next Republic Gunship. Anyone who got into LEGO Star Wars within the last eight years, go find an older, more wizen-looking AFOL to regale you with stories of trying to buy that first 7163 Republic Gunship between the time of its removal from shelves around 2004 and when 7676 was released in 2008. Those were hard years to be a LEGO Star Wars fan.
I believe the next ship that could cause such aftermarket distress for the uninitiated is going to be the similar-in-concept First Order Transporter. So, as I throw in this subtle affiliate link so you can go buy it and at the same time support what we are aiming to do with this website, let me give you this tiny version of the future classic. Yes, a few gaps here and there, but I’m happy with the curvature achieved along the underside.
