It looks like there are going to be new snow speeders and a new vaders tie fighter. I can't wait. These are se exspensive on ebay and I don't have them yet. I saw them at www.theforce.net

Between my Lego's and my other SW collectibles, I'm going to be butt high in debt.

Those look cool, but I will have to see about picking up another Vader TIE fighter.

Boba, I don't think the number was referring Vader's TIE... from what I hear, theres a UCS Death Star coming. :D That 10XXX is a UCS number afterall, and the Vader's TIE looks rather ordinary..

The 10xxx number series also references other sets, Cloud City is 10123. The way the numbers are over the TIE Fighter, I'm guessing it's going to be a set with 2 TIE Fighters and a Vader's TIE.

Snowspeeder looks pretty great IMO, I've been waiting for them to do this ship right since I'm not particularly impressed by the original, but I'm not expecting this one to be super fantastic either since they're using that same canopy.

I for one am glad they're tackling the snowspeeder and X-wing again, those 2 needed an update in accuracy very badly IMO, almost as much as the poor AT-ST.

Boy I really wish that picture of the TIE fighters was bigger. You can't hardly see if they're a new design or not. I'm not overly impressed by the snowspeeder. So far it looks like a year of repeats, but good looking repeats.

All three re-releases suit me just fine (Falcon, X & snow) as I did not pick them up before. It also looks like all three are refined and look a lot better. I think with the Falcon they are just trying to lure me into the Cloud City set....

Are the snowspeeders minifig compatible or are they the same scale as the other UCS fighters? The detail's great, but I think I'll just stick with the OG speeder.

True but last I heard the Cloud City was being treated as a UCS set.

There's two different Snowspeeder sets coming out. The one in the picture is for minifigs, while the UCS Snowspeeder is supposed to be about as big as the X-wing and TIE Interceptor.
