The great number of these sets is a little annoying if you'd like to see other Star Wars sets, but I actually rather enjoy seeing LEGO's improvement on them. They're learning from what they've done and applying it to what they're making, so almost every Millennium Falcon just has a little something that makes it unique and better than its predecessor.
Unfortunately, I can't go much deeper than that because I can't talk about leaks
Not to mention the waves of new fans growing up and wanting the signature ship, one of the most iconic vehicles in the entire world, or the collectors who own every single one for a reason.
That's okay, it's shredding itself apart anyways
I mean, it wasn't even in the top 3 themes last year, its spot taken by Ninjago, so I don't really thing this argument works that well. Of course, it may just be a weather VS climate thing.
Cough, Hidden Side, cough
Okay, to be honest, I've kind of noticed a bit of a turn in LEGO's themes. Ninjago and Hidden Side sets have gotten really good, but Star Wars has kind of died down, at least in my opinion. Instead of getting ten or fifteen sets a wave, the last one had, what, like six? And all of them are just improved versions of previous sets (Zam Wesell, come on, LEGO, Zam Wesell). LEGO is putting in a little money in hopes for a little profit, which they will get because it's Star Wars and the sets are actually fairly good in my opinion, while putting lots more into Ninjago and original themes. Same thing with the Marvel sets, too, it feels like. Which is unfortunate considering how massive the MCU is right now.
Now, this is all theory. I don't have any reason or evidence excluding my perspective, so don't take this as fact. I think LEGO is trying to make their original themes as appealing as their third party. Is this good? It's up to you. I'm neutral about it, as long as we get some really good sets out of Marvel Super Heroes and Star Wars (ZAM WESELL) every once in a while.
(Also, I am a Star Wars fan, and it means about as much for me as Bionicle does for lots of people on the Boards, but I still like to tease it every so often)
Ah. This one stings. While I can agree that a few of the Endgame sets were grave disappointments, there are still very many that stand out as incredible, like the Far From Home sets. I just don't want to cut off what can become so much better, plus with how big superheroes are, LEGO really shouldn't consider cutting them out of their products.
