SWX58 Still missing

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

SWX58 is a life size deathstar!

 

That would be kinda tricky to hide.

A some 450m wide sphere makes storage slightly problematic....

 

CR90 Corvette
150m/450=
333.3mm, 13.12 in
 
Deathstar I
120000/450= 
266666.667mm (266.67m) , 
10498.688 in (874.89 ft.), 
291.63 yd (2.43 football fields)

Not being a native speaker and being a bit sloppy 10/12 I read "lifesize" as "correctly scaled at 1/270".

Death Star 1 according to wookiepedia 120km=>444,5m at 1/270

Death Star 2 according to wookiepedia 160km=>592,6m at 1/270

I wonder if it comes with a stand... you know... to stop it rolling around....    :wacko:

Well, if SWX58 is a Rogue One-related set, given the movie has had its premiere and the reviews will start to come over the next few days... Hopefully that means news tomorrow.  Fingers, toes, and anything else crossable are crossed.

Eh, I wouldn't expect news until Thursday at the earliest.

If it's spoilery they will wait till people see the movie, not read reviews, so I'd expect an announcement maybe two weeks after the release or even next month.

Isn't "lifesize" supposed to mean 1:1?

My figures obviously (from the CR90 numbers) were not following the joke,

I was going with the game's epic scale. If you think about it, a "life-size" Deathstar

at 120 km (74.6 miles) for the game is simply a really stupid idea and not at all funny.

Can you imagine if it was just another abandoned project and they just didn't bother updating it or letting anyone know?

Two years from now, during Wave 15 there will still be conspiracy theorists wondering when the "Atmospheric Assault" Ground Game is coming out! (FFG should let us know any day now, I just know it!)

Yes. The ship design that attempted to hook in the My Little Pony market sounded good at first, but upon further consideration....

Are they going to announce it today? :)

 

Or anything else XWing?

More likely if it is something hidden it gets announced on Thursday when the movie is out.

 

Indeed. If it's being held back for oh-dear-god-spoiler reasons, I can't see them previewing it two days before the film comes out, can you?

R1 release here in the states is set for 7:00pm on Thursday, December 15th, in the Year of Our Lord, 2016.

That's exactly what Magnus said. The 13th being today is two days before release of the film.
