    I love the way that Hero Factory Furno bike looks, I may have to break my quarantine and get it.

    Oh, and for SW, I just have this to say:

    Why did they have to do this stuff so much better now? There's also a cooler Grievous Starfighter set with better Grievous minifig (but it's $50).

    Geez, Slave I (573 pieces) is going to be $80! Must be the new Fett, Bossk, and Han in Carbonite that has pushed the price up so much. All three figures are fantastic looking.

    There's a 2-1B in the Emperor's Shuttle! Grievous is completely redesigned too.

    The exposed axles on that Turbo Tank still look odd to me. Seems like vehicle like that would have coverings or armor to protect such a vulnerable spot.

    Good to see Harry Potter making a return. I'll get a second chance to get the sets I didn't buy the first time around.

    Forgot about LEGO getting the Cars license. Looks like it's going to be all Duplo so I won't have to worry about them!

    World Racers looks kinda cool! Almost like Wacky Races meets The Road Warrior.

    Definitely getting all the Prince of Persia sets. Looks like everything in that theme will mesh nicely with Adventurers/Indiana Jones. April will be here before I know it.

    The new Castle sets look good too.

    I'm very excited for Slave 1. I really like both 6209 and 7153. This new one looks like it's based on the 7153 design, but up dated. The Carbonite block looks well done and is a good idea. Too bad is not semi transparent, the vintage Carbonite Han. Bossk is a total disappointment. The color of the head is very wrong. Green? Sorry, Bossk isn't green. Maybe it's just a prototype, because the figure on the box is much closer.

    The Wampa cave is great too. I wasn't so sure I was going to like the Wampa. But the fact that it can hold a mini figure like that more than makes up for any short coming. I will say I did call that the Wampa was going to be like the trolls and not bricks.

    The new Castle sets of course have me giddy. I love the Castle line. And with the end of the Jelly Bean Knights, I can buy Castle again. Prince of Persia is a line I'll be getting. I'm a long time fan of the game. The rest look good, but I'll likely pass on. If something really jumps out at me, I'll get it. But other than that.

    I just had a discussion with a buddy about Bossk being green. I felt it was ok because he's "sorta green and brown", but he felt Bossk was too brown to allow this. I guess it's a real thing.

    I am glad they didn't do the carbonite block in smoke-trans, then you could see his hands holding onto the poles. I wonder if they'll put a grimacing expression on the back of his head though.

    I hadn't even noticed the World Racers, they look kinda cool, but man, LEGO has been on a racing kick the last decade.

    Yeah, there's really no way not to smile looking at that thing if you're a SW fan.

    2 of the tags suggest the battle pack sets are going up a dollar in July.

    I haven't bought any Legos in a few years but that Wampa Cave is something I really want to pick up. That human skeleton is a different touch. Is that an "Infinities" Luke ?

    I noticed that. From Jan-July: 10.99; then 11.99 from July on. Those packs have been regularly priced at 11.44 at the WM's around here for quite some time. The new 2010 Battle Packs are 10.99.

    So no more midi scale? I really liked the falcon that came out last year and was looking forward to more.
