• Looking Ahead to the 'Star Wars' Lego Sets

      The next generation of "Star Wars" Lego hardware includes two sweet throwback scenes that will tempt any fan of the sci-fi series, as well as a cluster of exotic early-trilogy ships, according to images and information garnered from past toy fairs and a recent update on Lego's official site.



      Jabba's Palace, pictured above, appears to be the easy winner in the summer 2012 collection with an all-star cast of nine characters including Leia as Boushh the bounty hunter and a captured Chewbacca. While the $119 tag might turn off some buyers, the charm factor appears high. We love Jabba's ridiculous form factor, his hyena-like minion Salacious Crumb, and the foreboding Han frozen in Carbonite. While the play area appears limited, other views indicate the 717-piece set offers far more detail than first meets the eye.

      Who could forget the chaotic scene at the Sarlacc pit from "Return of the Jedi"? The must-have Lego version ($24.99) features a skiff, Sarlacc, and a nice pack of characters. Now you can save Boba Fett from falling into the mouthy tentacles of a creature that takes a thousand years to digest its victims.
      Grievous' capital ship comes with six mini figures: Padme Amidala, Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku, a multisabered General Grievous, Count Dooku, and a few Battle Droids.

      Meet the other mega item -- Malevolence, General Grieveous' heavy cruiser flagship from "The Clone Wars." The $119.99 behemoth 1,092-piece double-hander actually offers a detailed interior (via removable open panels) in the rear with a cargo bay. The overall aesthetics look sharp, especially up front. Just don't drop it.


      A keen assortment of four other Lego "Star Wars" vehicles debuting with the summer collection consists of Pre Vizsla's Mandalorian Fighter ($39.99), Jedi Saesee Tiin's Jedi Starfighter($29.99), a Republic Striker ($44.99), and a Fury Class Interceptor ($89.99). Each of these fliers (and swimmer) fires missiles and come with a small handful of "Clone Wars"-era characters.
      Now your kid (or inner kid) can play with a Gungan sub, also known as a "Tribubble bongo."

      Despite everyone wanting to rewrite it, "The Phantom Menace" inspired this memorable Lego creation -- a $69.99 470-piece Gungan sub. Undoubtedly, this one offers a lot of replay value with rotating fins, missiles, and harpoon. The sub includes Queen Amidala, Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the forgettable Jar Jar Binks.


      The Lego designers definitely set their blasters to stunning this time around. Which "Star Wars" set would you buy?

      Sure sounds like a lot of cooks are in the kitchen, but I'm still optimistic about the film, though the trailers may have given away too much for my taste.
