    I would probably save myself money if I just buy a Lego Store at the rate I'm going.

    I totally support changing the name but couldn't they have done any better than, "Boba Fett's Starship"?

    Can’t spoil the name change for when it’s revealed on the show!

    If you sell the set as "Boba Fett's Starship" you aren't changing the name, but are avoiding putting Slave on your packaging by opting for a more general description instead.

    Seems like a decent way to do it to me.

    I guess they could've called it "Boba Fett's Firespray-class Interceptor" but that doesn't exactly roll off the tongue either.

    I don’t think they’re actually changing the name, just avoiding its use. Likely Disney is planning on doing the same. Or maybe Boba will just outright rename it in the upcoming show. The mini figs for that set look really cool, just wish the spear was more metallic instead of grey.

    I think they actually got Boba's helmet wrong on the new minifig since he got the new paint job in the show? Should be darker, match the print on his chest.

    Sorry it is more of an inside joke for the fans. Hasbro had a crowdsourced 3.75" figure scaled Razor Crest they were offering up before Season 2 of the Mandalorian. It is really cool looking, then Season 2 happened. But yeah, I agree that Star Wars fans will buy anything.

    Also someone pointed out that Lego and Disney did this before with two kits and nobody looked into it.

    Night Buzzard now called The Knights of Ren Transport Ship.

    Marauder now called The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle.

    To be fair to that, Boba's ship has been called Slave 1 for literally decades now. Tons of books, games and comics reinforcing it. I get why they changed it, but I also know the exact type of nerd liable to make a stink about then changing it.

    Coulda just shortened it to S-1 or something I guess

    As far as the old continuity there was Slave II, Slave III, and Slave IV. Slave IV was an AIAT/i gunship. One of the most ridiculous starships ever designed and I love every bit of it. I would love to has a model of one Lego or otherwise.

    I knew there was a Slave 2 in the EU, foggy on 3, but 4 is news to me, and Google image searching on it… uh, did they take a gunship, slap giant engines on it and claim its now a water plane/interstellar craft?

    Because that’s very EU if they did.

    And it's a massively better looking design then the "We slapped a wing on one side of a doorstop" Slave II.

    From quick looks and my hazy memory, it looks like Dark Empire established Slave II, and some later books (Junior Jedi Knights?) went with Slave IV. So Slave III seems to exist to fill that gap.

    And with all the Boba Fett that showed up towards the end of the EU (thanks to Karen) I honestly have no idea what ship he was using.

    The first appearance of the name Slave 1 was in the novelization of The Empire Strikes Back. Because there is no Star Wars trivia that is too trivial for the internet.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    It’s kind of amazing to realize how many things in the Star Wars movies are not actually named on-screen, but it seems like we all know what to call them.

    Given those other instances of name changes, I am around 85% certain that Lego didn't change the name due to any morality concerns, but because they've discovered "[character name]'s ship/shuttle/fighter/truck" sells better than the official name, especially if said ship name is only to be found on wiki pages and not actively used in media. It ain't some active attempt to annoy chuds, but I'll take it.

    Yeah, to me it's no different than the way they call things "Luke's X-wing" or whatever. Although, weirdly, "X-wing" is one of those things that isn't said in the films, I think. Once, maybe?

    An Imperial officer mentions it when Luke is on approach to Bespin in ESB. They might also bring it up when discussing the plan for attacking the Death Star in ANH, but I can't remember off the top of my head. Slave 1 is never mentioned and I honestly can't even remember noticing the Knights of Ren ship's existence in RoS. Selling like hot cakes that kit likely did not.

    Looks like the site is getting hammered by people wanting the forest castle. I don't know why they'd limit it to 5,000 sets only, they're just looking for another fan backlash.

    It is really close to 5,000 as well. First to be funded and probably first to "sell out". The 5,000 limit is probably so they can fit the production into their factory time without impacting their mainline stuff.

    If they make too big a fuss I guess one of the episodes of the 'Book of Fett' will feature its annihilation and replacement. Good excuse for another toy anyhow.

    I had a quick try of that app. Maybe not ideal conditions but it wasn’t great at accuracy in the picture scanning. It does let you catalogue your existing sets and search that way though. It seems to be colour agnostic so anything you build from it may be fairly rainbow.
