    10131 UCS Death Star?

    On the box back of the new 4502 X-Wing Fighter, there is a small picture showing the Battle of Yavin with LEGO TIEs and X-Wings flying near a screen capture of the Death Star with "10131 01.08.2004" printed on it.

    Could this be one of the two new exclusive Star Wars sets that will be released in August? A UCS Death Star would be a monster set. How could they get a good curved surface with square bricks? The LEGO spheres I've seen still retain a somewhat blocky shape even when smaller bricks are used.

    That's one speculation that's being spread around. The other, and IMO the more realistic set, is that it'll be a TIE Fighter 3-pack including DV's TIE.

    No matter what, this set looks to be a S@H exclusive due to the set number and because it wasn't shown to retailers at the NY toy show.

    I am fairly sure it's going to be a shop-at-home exclusive TIE 3pack just like Man Can said.

    Ji'dai, I just reread your post and you say two S@H exclusives. I've only heard about the one. Just curious where you got two exclusives from. Did that come from Lego?

    Man Can, hopefully he got it from my Toy Fair news post, in which Lego said that except for 2 not yet named exclusives, everything in our Toy Fair coverage was the 2004 line in its entirety (which means that except for the new Falcon and those 2 exclusives, the 2004 SW lego line is already out).

    What's up with that? No storyteller sets (under $29.99, that is)? No starter sets? 2002 and 2003 were decent years, but 2004 seems to be...I don't know...stagnant. Is it the pre-movie year doldrums? Lego's $ problems? Lack of retailer support? Will Batman and Robin get out of this one alive? Stay tuned til 2005 (or at least until the end of 2004) when we find out what's going on.

    At first guess, I'd say it's due to the financial issues and this being a non-movie year. I'm a little surprised they don't have more older sets out for the OT DVD release though, all that will be at stores when that hits are this new Falcon, the new X-wing, the new Snowspeeder, the AT-AT, the Cantina storyteller, and wave 3 MINI. I mean, they could have a limited re-release of the Y-wing (alone even), the A-wing, the B-wing, the Imp Shuttle, the Cloud Car (especially with the Cloud City exclusive set having come out recently), maybe Jango's Slave I redecoed as Boba's and with an actual back door as well.

    I agree with your assessment, but maybe Lego doesn't think there's going to be that big of a runoff from the DVDs onto their SW sets. I'd love to have a redo of the Y-Wing and another B-Wing issued since I never bought that one. The Imp. Shutt., Cloud Car, and possibly the A-Wing wouldn't be redone so soon since it's only been a few years since their release and the clearanced Cloud Car is still clogging KB shelves.

    More MINIs would be great because they're cheap and you can do larger vehicles that would run $100 in the regular scale.

    I don't really like the high priced ones such as the AT-AT and AT_TE. I only bought the AT-TE, Slave 1, and Hailfire because they cost me no more than 60 bucks total for all three on clearance. I would love to have the AT-AT and such but the price is too high for me.

    I would love to see more mini's. I think the look great. If Lego lowered the reatil on the high end ones, I would be more apt to get them. I bought the Cantina one for 30 bucks, but it had a few different things in it. I also love the little dudes that come with it. Does habro sell these seperately?

    BTW, the new X-wing that you guys are talking about, is that the Dagobah scene one or is another coming out?
