This was posted on eurobricks, don't know if there's any truth to it?.?. But these sets sound good.


"From the Classic Trilogy there is a Storm Trooper Dropship which is a small set with a label "Build you armies" comes with 2 stormies and Tie Pilot.

From the Prequal Trilogy line the AT-PT. Very nice looking with 2 Clones that appeared to be shocktroopers

From the Clone Wars animated series was Anakin Skywalker's Jedi Starfighter. this is a standard episode 2 Jedi Starfighter but is colored similar to his Episode 3 starfighter. (the Grey and Yellow one) very similar to Seasee's starfighter.

The 4th set was from Force Unleashed. It is Darth Vader's Apprentices ship the Rogue Shadow. it looks alot like the IG-2000. comes with Mini Figs of the Apprentice with a large cut/bandaged area in his midsection, a very very battle damaged Vader, and the female Imperial officer (who's name completely escapes me right now.)"

EDIT 2: Here is some more news again !! (thanks to DJSaulTNutz of course!).

There will also be a Grievous model that when assembled is about 12 inches high, and potentiall with a real cloth cape included....I have seen this model myself and it is really fantastic. It will be one of the UCS models for next year.

EDIT 1: Here's some more news (thanks to DJSaulTNutz of course!).

The two new battlepacks other than the Stormie battlepack will be:

Hoth Battlepack - Contents unknown, but NO Taun Taun

Droid Battlepack - 4 battle droids, 2 super battle droids, a dwarf spider droid and a hailfire droid!


Everything sound great, but I'm hoping Anakins CW JF is the Azure Angel, seen in the cartoon. And not another Ep2 yellow and grey one. I'm really hoping that the Rogue Shadow is true, I really like this ship, and am dying for the game.

YUCK! With the exception of the Hoth and Stormtrooper battlepacks those sound like terrible sets. I'll reserve a real judgment until I see real photos of such sets from Lego.

If true, i'd be interested in the Dropship and the Hoth and Droid packs. I guess i'll hold off on getting anymore of the current droid packs as this second version with the spider and hailfire droids is much better.

Jangu Fett
06-26-2007, 08:39 PM
Ok. some new info. Set numbers and prices. And from what I understand the new Ani JSF isn't from the cartoon, but something new from the upcoming CGI Clone Wars series.

And it IS NOT a AT-PT, but a AT-AP, from ROTS. Maybe with a Blue Alien Jedi :thumbsup: Let's hope.

7669 Anakin's Fighter $19.99
7670 Hail-fire Droid $19.99 (includes tan battle droids, dark gray super battle droids, spider droid)
7671 AT-AP Podwalker $39.99
7672 Rogue Shadow $49.99 (3 figs from the EU, very cool)

I'm not sure how they'll improve on the original Hailfire Droid, especially since this new one costs less than half the price of it's predecessor.

Jangu Fett
06-27-2007, 10:29 AM
The first Hail-fire wasn't sold as part of the system sets, I think it was a technic set. Although it is pretty close to scale with the mini-figs.

LusiferSam
06-27-2007, 12:21 PM
That's correct. The Hailfire Droid (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/4481) was Technic set. I've always thought it was too big to be on the same scale as Lego mini-figures. It looked closer to 3 3/4" scale figures to me. But maybe I need to watch AOTC again to grasp the size of the thing.

JediTricks
06-27-2007, 10:50 PM
LS is right, it's like triple the size it'd need to be to work with System guys, and much closer to Hasbro's figure scale.

I don't know about anyone else, but is anyone as upset as I am over the Rogue Shadow? Of all the sets, that was the one I was really hoping, that turned out good. This thing looks like crap. The others sets look good, but the Rogue, looks like something made with mega bloks. I think I'm going to be sick. Lego really dropped the ball on that one.

Looks to be a scaled down and to small Hailfire Droid.

Jangu Fett
09-22-2007, 05:21 PM
OK, well after looking more carefully at the photos. The Rogue Shadow is lop-sided. The left mandible is 2 pegs wider then the right ( looking at it ). The photo of the "actual" ship, both foward mandibles are about the same width. And the wing supports look like they are to long. And what's up with the cockpit capsule being a solid black disk. I would have thought that lego would use the TIE cockpit for that. Again I am really upset with the Rogue. I'll have to do my own.

The AT-AP looks alright, but. The legs look rather thin, supporting such a large cockpit area. And why isn't the main canon on the main body, it look like it's part of the turret.

The other sets, I can't see all that well, but look good. My only problem is that the Hailfire has those flick fire missles. I don't like those, but other then that, not bad. IMO, lego really messed up this next year sets.

It has three legs, so that shouldn't be a problem until you fold up the one leg anyway.

Ji'dai
09-22-2007, 06:49 PM
Wow, how underwhelming. I'm getting out of touch with Star Wars I guess... I don't even know what Rogue Shadow is from.

I do like the Rebel Troopers though. Have plenty stormtroopers already. What I want are Snowtroopers and Biker Scouts.

Jangu Fett
09-22-2007, 07:16 PM
Oh, I know it has 3 legs. Which it looks like it needs to stand, with the cockpit upright, but they still look to thin.

Ji'dai the Rogue Shadow is from the Star Wars: Force Unleashed game to be released next spring. What ever that is supposed to be in the photo, IS NOT, the Rogue Shadow.

This is what the Shadow looks like....http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/thumb/5/5c/Rogue_Shadow.jpg/600px-Rogue_Shadow.jpg
As you can see, lego didn't do this ship any justice.

JediTricks
09-23-2007, 04:45 PM
The Hailfire Droid is not a re-release, it's an all new version meant to go with the System line rather than the original which was a well-overscaled Technic one (overscaled to System, naturally).


I hadn't seen the Rogue Shadow before, so the LEGO set didn't look that good but not that bad - seeing the basis for it though, they TOTALLY f'ed that thing up. The cockpit seems to be a semisphere though.

You'll have to look at the photo you post of the this thing a little closer. The mandibles aren't even close to the same size. The left is clearly wider than the right.

I can't say I'm real hyped about any of these sets. The Rebel speeder thing is about the best. The drop ship doesn't do much for me. The AT-AP is really boring, it's the worst AT-something yet. The Halifire droid I'd get, but I like the Technic version better. The Rogue Shadow, now that's an interesting one. I'm not real in EU stuff, but this one has potential. I know I'll likely get all of the in the end anyway, but oh well.

Jangu Fett
09-24-2007, 02:49 PM
You might be right, it's a little hard to tell though. And even if it is slightly thinner then the other side, the lego version looks, well, cheap. Lego could have definately done the Rogue Shadow better then this.

JediTricks
09-24-2007, 10:24 PM
The right mandible is 6 studs wide at the front, the left is 4, that's a big difference.

So, Rogue Shadow is from The Force Unleashed game?

Jangu Fett
09-26-2007, 09:29 PM
Yeah, it's supposed to be, if I remember correctly, a prototype Spy/Scout ship for the Empire. Vader gives it to his apprentice, as a secret way past known imperial security. Juno Eclipse is a pilot asigned to help Vader's apprentice, on his missions. Both ship and apprentice are Vader's secret. He finds out the Emperor used him, and is thinking about over throwing him.

I don't know, maybe the Rogue is starting to grow on me. I like the design from the begining, but the Lego version? It's not looking so bad. And I LOVE Ani's new JSF, Black and Gold baby!!!!:thumbsup:LET'S GO PENS!!!:thumbsup:

Oh, and I heard that there will be another 8 sets from the new Clone War CGI cartoon. I don't know if Ani's JSF counts as one or not, though.

Jangu Fett

Well here's at lest 1 of the CW sets. The V-19 Torrent Clone Fighter. If you zoom in on the ship, you'll see it's brick made.

Yawn...


They're obviously running out of ideas if they're making so much carp from the EU. I don't even care anymore and that's sad as the SW LEGO's were my favorite.


EU ruins everything.

Jangu Fett
09-27-2007, 10:19 AM
Sorry, but I have to disagree, Slicker. EU does not ruin EVERYTHING. And really the only EU stuff seen so far is the vechicles in the BPs, and the TIE Crawler. Not a great set but, OK. All the rest are canon, or will be once Force Unleashed is released. And I'm sure the CGI Clone Wars will also be canon. And anyway, I'm glad Lego is doing some lesser known ships, from the SW Universe. I'm really glad we didn't see another redone X-Wing, TIE Fighter or Falcon, then almost everyone would be complaining about, how Lego won't do new ships. And continue to redo older models we all have.

And I really have to disagree with your statment, about the EU, with SW Legacy of the Force. Have you read those???? Those are AWESOME. But it's your opinion, and your intitled to it.:thumbsup:

Looks like another year with very expensive sets. AT-AP looks at least $40, maybe $50. Rogue Shadow looks $30. Torrent looks like $70. I still haven't picked up the Y-wing or Imperial Lander, and now we've got the MTT, Naboo Fighter, Jedi Starfighter with hyperdrive ring, plus exclusives Sith Infiltrator, Republic Cruiser, and Echo Base - all of them expensive sets $30 and up.

Jangu Fett
09-27-2007, 09:41 PM
Rogue Shadow for $30? Maybe? All of the sudden it's looking even better.:D I was most likely going to get the Shadow anyway, the other sets? They all look pretty good, but I might skip the AT-PT. It just does not look right. The BPs, Shadow, and Ani's JSF. Yes, I'll try to get them. I'll deside about the At-PT, when I see it at store.

AS for this years sets, I'd like to get the Infiltrator, JSF and Booster, AT-ST, and Hoth Echo Base. I'd love to get the Republic Cruiser, but that $100, is a bit much right now. Sorry, Halo is taking alot of my money, right now.:)

I finally picked up the Y-Wing ($25) and Landing Craft ($30) this week. I still need the Star Destroyer. It's been out for over a year and is only available at TRU locally. I don't really like the set, but that ol' collector's impulse is rearin' its ugly head ag'in.

The latest batch of releases don't excite me at all. Too much prequel stuff and that Hoth set isn't all that great. Still, I'm a sucker, so I'll probably buy 'em all anyway.

With so many expensive sets being released, what are your spending limits when it comes to LEGO?

There was a time when I could drop several hundred on one set, and that was for unopened out-of-production stuff. Sets I missed out on and hadn't been on the market for years. But I just can't bring myself to do that with newly-released product.

I'm willing to spend up to $150 for a set these days, and they are almost always sets that are typically only available directly from LEGO. If it's available at retail, I try to wait for a sale or clearance. Anything over $150 and I tend to balk. So I don't have the big expensive UCS sets, such as the ISD, Death Star II, and Falcon.

How about you? How many of you are willing to blow $500 on the UCS Falcon?

LusiferSam
09-29-2007, 05:21 PM

I guess I really don't have a limit when it comes to Lego. It think the most I've dropped in one outing is $250. My Lego collection is big enough and taken up enough room I only buy I really interests me. Although I like the SW sets (and my opinion has diminished recently), I'm not really in to UCS sets. They're big dust catchers to me. Now the UCS Falcon is cool, but just too big for me do anything with and is still mostly a dust catcher. So, no I won't blowing $500 on that set.

Jangu Fett
09-30-2007, 07:36 PM
I agree with LS, while the UCS Falcon is really nice, there not much true play value to it. Like he said a big ( really big ) dust collector. And my wallet hurts just looking at that beast.:)

I'm not all that impressed with the Motorized AT-AT. Don't get me wrong, the walking feature is awesome, but it looks almost identical to the non-walking version. And I'm not going to shell out $100 for 1 new figure.

I say this now, watch if Lego does a walking AT-TE. I'll most likely be singing a different tune.

I like the UCS stuff, but they are primarily display pieces. My first love is System with it's mini-figs, and the Falcon is made to accomodate them. The deal breaker for me is the crappy interior, which is one of the things that bothers me about the System Star Destroyer too. Had LEGO put some more effort into interior design on the UCS Falcon, I'd be more inclined to get one.

I'm totally with you on that one. If it had a real interior I'd be lined up to buy one. It's the System (and sometimes Technic) sets that make my wallet thin. If I really want a giant UCS style Falcon I could build my own with an interior. Knowing what the exterior looks like 90% of the battle, the rest is easy.

Jangu Fett
10-03-2007, 11:15 AM
If the UCS Falcon had a interior, for mini-figs. Wouldn't the price go up more?

If it didn't raise the price of this set, and have a detailed interior, I would reconsider getting it. But still that $500 price tag, is the big problem. It's hard enough sometimes, just getting the regular system sets, with about two sets a year, being $100-$130. A set like the UCS Falcon, would be awesome to own, the price of it is what's driving me away.

JediTricks
10-04-2007, 10:25 PM
They actually wanted to do an interior on the UCS Falcon, but the size of the set prohibited it because the weight of the sections is too heavy to support it without major crossbeam design inside. I don't think it would have raised the price of the set any to design SOMEWHAT of an interior, but the reality is that a screen-accurate interior would probably raise the price another $100 (consider taking out the load-bearing interior framework gets you back a lot of pieces, but the amount of greebling to get the set design into place would add it back quickly... every corridor is curved!)


My spending limit seems to have dropped to $20 with the line. I don't have space for any more pieces, and the sets are just getting too pricey in general - I kinda want that Hyperdrive JSF set but at $50 I can't really justify it anymore. I actually came within moments of buying the Naboo Fighter set, but it really doesn't look like $30 of fun. If the price is right on the AT-AP, I may get it, I'll probably get the army builder cheapo sets, but I fear I'm already out of Lego interest.

I'm right with you on all that. The Shadow still doesn't really look like the main design, but it looks more like a fun set now. I'm afraid it might be $50 or $75 though, looks pretty big.


It looks even more like they're using the technic chain links for the Hailfire's wheels, but I just took the chain off one of my designs and it flops all the way down, no way to invert it.

That Imperial Drop Ship keeps looking worse and worse, but the Rebel Speeder looks cooler and cooler in these sets (even if it is a bobsled ;)). Clone Wars JSF looks kinda "meh" to me, but the Anakin figure looks pretty good and I am very curious to hear if they fixed the AOTC JSF's fragility issues. The Hailfire set looks good, but a little small, I bet it'll be $20 even though it looks more like a $12 set. The AT-AP looks bigger than I expected and kinda fat, I bet it'll go good with the AT-TE but overshadow it by its increased height. The Rogue Shadow looks kinda cool sitting like that, but I hope the wings don't have to be pointed up when doing so.

More possible 2008 sets,

From, http://eurobricks.hosting.ipsyn.com/euroforum/index.php?showtopic=11428&st=360

THERE WILL BE A FEW MORE NEW SETS FOR LEGO STAR WARS THAT WILL RELEASE ON 2008. But i do not know 2008 when. The sets are 7673 Republic Gunship that comes with 3 Clone Troopers, 4 Clone Pilots, a Clone Commander, 2 Clone Leutenants, Yoda & Mace Windu, 7674 Sabre Class Fighter Tank that comes with 4 Clone Troopers & a Clone Sergeant, 7675 Sharp Spiral that comes with Saesee Tinn, & 7676 Durge's Starfighter comes with Durge, & Asajj Ventress. Im not sure whether there will be so many minifigs for the Republic Gunship or not.

Jangu Fett
10-29-2007, 02:22 PM
You beat me to the punch, BD.:thumbsup: These sets are also listed on wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Lego_Star_Wars_sets

I love what I'm seeing, but I really doubt that the 7673 Republic Gunship will include 12 figures. I hope I'm wrong though. Or that the 7674 Sabre Class Fighter Tank will have 5. I really think that the RGS will have at most 6, and maybe 3 with the Sabre Tank.

The Sharp Spiral is a pleasent surprise, and I'm dying to see Durge, and his ship.

I wonder why the V-19 Torrent is not listed?.?. It was shown in a teaser poster. Maybe a "Limited Edition"?.?. Between TFU and the new Clone Wars,(Lego, 3 3/4 inch, and Miniature games) my wallets going to be hurting, bad.

I actually don't see us getting a Homing Spider Droid this year. If this list is true, we know of 5 sets for summer 08. With maybe another 1 or 2, most likely UCS sets. And with a Dwarf Spider Droid included in the BD "super" BP, I think seeing the larger one so soon is really unlikely.

Until LEGO can do 1 SW environment right, I don't think a Death Star is even worth speculating upon. Partly because what we'll get will be heavily truncated - like, a wall and a display and maybe a doorway, but that's it - and partly because if they did a remake of the Kenner playset, it'd be either very narrow or very hard to get figures in and out of. At best, I suspect it'd look a lot like their Batcave playset, big but not really that much to do or "in" areas.

The Lego Store in Glendale, CA got in the AT-AP, Stormie and Rebels packs. I bought the latter two and am still iffy on the AT-AP especially since it's 39.99 with only around 300 something bricks, I believe. For less than that, I can get the same vehicle from Hasbro whenever it gets released.

Man, I am going to be so busted, come June. Good thing it's my birthday month. Am I the only one, but after reading what set 7678 was, I feel I need to lay down......

Maybe, it's a cross between finding out the TIE Defender listed and the prices.

7679 Fighter Tank TX 130S, RRP $49.99US I haven't the slightest idea what these are or what source they're from.


7675 AT-TE, RRP $89.99US
Good to see this one again. I didn't get the previous version, even though I saw it on clearance for $40. Stupid.


7676 Republic Gunship, RRP $99.99US The last version was really cool. It looked a lot like the actual ship and the action features were well executed. I bought 2 of them on clearance for $35 each.


7678 Tie Defender, RRP $29.99US :love::love:(Please be real!!!):love::love: I'm thinking this is the EU TIE with the 3 wings? Always thought that was a cool looking desgin. Since a conventional TIE usually costs about $20, LEGO must be charging $10 extra for that third wing/panel :greedy: No wonder the Empire never put this fighter into full production.

Spotted nearly all the '08 SW sets at TRU today. The only one I didn't see was the Imperial Dropship. I would've bought the Rebel Scout Speeder if it wasn't $12.99.

The AT-AP just doesn't do anything for me. I liked Robocop and all, but I don't really want toys from the movie.

The Hailfire & Spider Droid set is pretty small. There was a mother and son checking the new stuff out while I was there, comparing piece counts between the same-priced Hailfire (249 pcs) and Jedi Starfighter (153 pcs). Both thought the Rebel Scout Speeder was overpriced at 12.99 for a measly 88 pieces.

I did like the Rogue Shadow and now regret not getting it. At least it was regularly priced and didn't have TRU's weird mark-up. I kind of like the design as it reminds me of the old Space theme Blacktron (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/?qc=lego/system/space/blacktroni). I liked the Juno Eclipse and battle-damaged Vader mini-figs too. The apprentice fig is so-so.

The V-19 Torrent is a clone strafighter, from the Clone Wars cartoon. The Republic Fighter Tank is from the Clone Wars video game. I think the Magna Droid Fighter is something new from the new Clone Wars CGI cartoon coming out next year, no idea what it looks like.

Here is the V-19-http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/thumb/f/fe/V-19_Torrent_Starfighter.jpg/250px-V-19_Torrent_Starfighter.jpg

Here's the Fighter Tank-http://www.wizards.com/global/images/starwars_article_sw20040115tank_pic1_en.jpg

And this is the TIE Defender-(It is the 3 winged TIE)http://img511.imageshack.us/img511/5889/tiedefenderoc5.jpg

I can't wait, for any of these. I am happy to wait though, time to save up for these. I really happy to see these done, but, the price is killer.

Everyone, but me, seems to have more luck finding the new sets. I haven't seen any of the new sets in stores. That bums me out, I really was hoping to get the Rogue Shadow before the holidays. Oh, well. Something to look forward to getting.

Thanks for the 411 on those three sets, Jangu. I like the V-19; I remember it from the cartoon now. For a $50 set, hopefully LEGO will do it justice and not crank out some thin, flimsy-winged fighter.

That tank design reminds me of the City Speedboat (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/7244) with it's double-prong shaped nose.

I didn't think I was going to see the '08 SW or Indy sets before Christmas either. In previous years I've seen all the new year stuff much earlier than I did this year.

$12.99 is indeed too much for the Dropship and Rebel Speeder. I bought both from the Lego store for $9.99 which should be Target's price for those as well.

Of the sets slated for next summer, I think I'll only be interested in the V-19 Torrent.

The tank also appears in Battlefront II btw.

I got the Hailfire Droid for Christmas and just built it this evening. I posted pics of the wheel assembly in the photo gallery (http://photos.sirstevesguide.com/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=3421).

Each wheel is made up of 40 small Technic link treads supported by a clear radar dish. LEGO probably did this to give the illusion that the droid is riding on a ring of treads rather than just a wheel.

The clear radar dish provides an attachment point to the vehicle body and the treads spin relatively freely if the droid is moved over a rough surface (such as carpet).

LusiferSam
12-27-2007, 02:45 AM
Oh, that's pretty cleaver. Thinking back to the Technic Hailfire droid there were to big wheels that were free to roll, but held in by gears. This gives the same look and an attachment point, like you said Ji'dai. The piece isn't a Technic tread as we've seen in sets like the Sandcrawler though. It's a Technic link chain (http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/3711) normally found in Lego drive trains. I like seeing old elements put to new and interesting uses.

JediTricks
12-27-2007, 03:05 AM
A radar dish, huh? That explains it, thanks for the photos. How does the outside of the wheel (the "hub" part in front of the clear dish) avoid rotating with the dish? I knew they used those links, I have a set with them and they're great, but they just flop about, they won't lock down. I wish they had figured out a way to do the wheels right though, I loved the Technic version (even though the gearing would sometimes not want to mesh).

7675 AT-TE
7676 Republic Gunship
7678 Tie Defender or 7678 Droid Gunship
7679 Fighter Tank TX 130S
7680 Twilight ---> TRU Exclusive
7681 Homing Spider Droid ---> TRU Exclusive

7678 Tie Defender or 7678 Droid Gunship?.?. Is it really that hard to tell them apart? Maybe one is the missing set 7677? For me either set is great, I'm also happy to see that the Twilight ( whatever it is ) and Homing Spider may be relaesed. Just stinks royally that they're TRU Exclusives.

TRU exclusive LEGO sets are the easiest of the exclusives to get generally. Target is a close second, WM is a HORRIBLY distantly third. And the exclusives aren't generally priced-up the way Hasbro toys are.

Ji'dai
12-27-2007, 05:19 PM
How does the outside of the wheel (the "hub" part in front of the clear dish) avoid rotating with the dish? The dish doesn't rotate at all, it's connected to the vehicle body by its 4-stud attachment point in the center. The entire wheel assembly is then locked into place using a Technic rod that runs through the center of the dish. The only thing on the wheel that rotates is the chainlink tread.

---

As far as exclusives go, nearly all can be obtained from LEGO Shop@Home. And with the retail markup, sales tax, and gas prices, it may be cheaper to order sets directly from LEGO instead.

JediTricks
12-29-2007, 02:06 AM
OF COURSE! How could I be so stupid? That should have been exceptionally obvious to me, the outside rim of the dish is SMOOTH. :stupid: Not a bad idea on their part.


I cannot think of a LEGO Star Wars exclusive that's ever been that hard to get with time, the closest were the 2007 Wal-mart exclusives I believe.

This smaller design makes sense, the AOTC version is pretty nifty but way over-scaled. Looks like they're taking the Clone Wars cartoon spaceworthiness design into mind here, with covers over the front doorway and the exposed half of the rear doorway. I like that they got the bend in the opening doors in there finally, the original is cool but inaccurate in that part.

Jangu Fett

My 2 problems with the new RGS are, first, what looks like flick fire missiles at the top. And second the wings look to short. Other then those 2 things I like the design. It looks sturdier then the first RGS. I hated the originals front half opening with that large tool box.

I also like how it, as JT pointed out looks more space worthy. It looks as if the back folds down, and a speeder might be held there. Am I the only one, but I like the Lizard-Monkey design on the front. Also the wings finally have complete ball turrets.

With this set having Asajj Ventress, I hope we get a set with a Durge mini-figure. Maybe with his speeder bike, included with the Clone Fighter Tank.

My 2 problems with the new RGS are, first, what looks like flick fire missiles at the top.Huh, I didn't notice that before, but yeah, those definitely are. They're the new ones though, using the loose technic pin system rather than just axles, so that's a little in the right direction. It doesn't look too obtrusive to me.


And second the wings look to short.That's probably for the best, the original's wings make the set kind of hard to play with.


Other then those 2 things I like the design. It looks sturdier then the first RGS. I hated the originals front half opening with that large tool box.I actually liked that, it hearkened back to the '80s LEGO space sets that did that.


It looks as if the back folds down, and a speeder might be held there.Good eye, I lightened it and can plainly see the speeder back there. I dunno if it folds down though.

$100 for the Gunship?! If I'm not mistaken wasn't the original release around $50-$60? And that AT-TE is far smaller than the original. Why would they retool it? The original was pretty durned good if you ask me.

It's too bad too. The LEGO line was probably the best offshoot of Star Wars yet.

No, the original Gunship was $90, but it was a bigger set too.


The original AT-TE did have some issues that needed correcting, but it didn't need shrinking, that's for sure. Basically, they're trying to get new purchases from current owners.

The Gunship was seriously $90?! Man, I must've been alot more free with my spending if I had an extra $90 for that.

I think I got mine as a gift, but yeah, it was the expensive set for its release (back when Lego wasn't doing multiple expensive sets per wave).

Some new info about the summer 08 sets. The Clone Commanders have faces under the helmets, and the lizard-monkey decal for the gunship, will be 1 of 2 different designs for the front of the ship.

Here's a link. It also mentions the "Heir to the Empire" series.- http://www.theprivateuniverse.co.uk/cgi-bin/showarticle.pl?section=news&articleid=2557

Some bad news guys. I found the prices for the summer 08 sets, not all. Just the ones shown.

V-19 Torrent (SRP: $44.99)
MagnaGuard Starfighter (SRP: $54.99)
AT-TE Walker (SRP: $89.99)
Republic Gunship (SRP: $119.99)

Looks really bad. I really hope these aren't the actual price. $120 for the Gunship? WHF, lego needs to rethink this.

Which one is the MagnaGuard Starfighter?

Ouch and at those prices, I'll think I'll be passing on them. I might have wanted the V-19, but that's WAY too much, IMO. I got the first AT-TE as well as the Gunship and those were fine for me. I paid too much for those ones back them. I'm trying to trim my budget, not blow it up again.

Thanks for the news JF. At least I know one area that I'll be saving money on.

The MagnaGuard SF is the P-38 looking ship.

After seeing these prices, I can't say with any certainty now, that I'll be getting any of these sets.:sad: I think the V-19 should be around $40, it looks pretty big, but the MagnaGuard SF?? Thats a $30 set, it's not big enough to warrent that price. The Gunship, forget it. $20 more then the original?? And we're getting less.

The only one that looks "reasonable", price-wise. Is the AT-TE, round the same price as the first, and we're getting more figures. But still, all these increaced prices, isn't going to do the line any good.

At those prices, I can guarantee you I won't be getting any of these. Hopefully those are a mistake, that's insanity.

Those prices are in line with what Lego has been charging in Canada for a while. And now that they American dollar has fallen to parity (give or take) with the Canadian one you guys can expect more of this.

Lego prices are based on what it costs in Euros to produce and ship therefore the falling US dollar is making sets more expensive.
(The at-te looks to be twice the size of the recent clone walker set which was 54.99 Cdn, so the price point seems about right).


As a side note to this Walmart Canada has stopped carrying Lego, as Lego wouldn't lower their prices.

The Droid Gunship, from that photo, looks abit flimsy. The "head" looks to long and narrow, still, I'll most likely get it. I wonder what figures are with that. Please include Durge, Please include Durge.

http://eurobricks.hosting.ipsyn.com/euroforum/index.php?act=Attach&type=post&id=2004OH MY GOD! SOMEONE IS MAKING THE TX-130!!! This is the tank from SW Battlefront, nobody's done one until now. This also bodes well for Hasbro making one.


Droid Gunship, wow, good choice, LEGO is better for this than Hasbro. The head is too big though.

I am bringing me up to date about the 2008 SW LEGO sets. :)
I read this thread, looked at the Toy Fair pics, and read the rumors. ;)

It looks like this year could be the year in which LEGO is producing the max number of SW sets ever! :shocked:

I counted the number of SW LEGO set in these years and got these numbers:
1999 - 14
2000 - 20
2001 - 10
2002 - 21
2003 - 21
2004 - 13
2005 - 18
2006 - 10
2007 - 14
2008 - 17
The years we got more sets are 2001, 2002, and 2000. But if we take out the Minifig sets (like those in 2000, or the Final Duels-like sets) and the MINI sets, which were quite inexpensive) we get these other numbers:
1999 - 14
2000 - 16
2001 - 10
2002 - 17
2003 - 12
2004 - 6
2005 - 15
2006 - 10
2007 - 14
2008 - 17
In this case there is a draw between 2002 and 2008, but 2008 is not finished yet and maybe we can get one or more sets we do not know yet (maybe the 7677, even though I know set numbers do not mean a lot).

Now I have a question for you: from your point of view, do the interest in the line and the sales in the shops justify this big effort from LEGO side to produce so many sets?
This situation reminds me of the 1999 flooding of Action Fleet and MicroMachines products which ultimately brought to the cancellation of both lines. Do you agree? or is it just my perspective which is wrong? :) What do you think? Please, let me know. :D

Ciao,
JediGoofy

Honestly, I think LEGO is not offering a lot of sets right now that consumers want, and everything's horribly overpriced because they're including a ton of tiny greebling parts for detail, while sacrificing set size and play features. There also seems to be a vast lack of "introduction" sets, those smaller sets that draw new consumers deeper into the line.

Wow, that's cool. Why is it in the old packaging though? That's so weird.

Too bad he's attached to the base, they could have made a pretty decent figure out of this.

I was able to find the second booklet's PDF and extract another image which shows what Grievous can do (not much, I think the second arms are removable rather than movable).

Welcome aboard. The Hoth Base is set number 7666 (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/7666). I've not heard of a Hoth Battle Pack. The closest set I can think of is the Rebel Scout Speeder 7668 (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/7668).
