Pre Vizsla's Mandalorian Fighter picture/MBA news

Pre Vizsla's Mandalorian Fighter

Smashing Bricks has posted what I think is the first picture of Pre Vizsla's Mandalorian Fighter, which might actually have been there for a while. It's a bit small but you can just about make out what it'll be like. This means that the only 2012 Star Wars set in the retail assortment that we don't know anything about, other than a name, is 9526 Palpatine's Arrest.

Meanwhile, the latest Master Builder Academy sets, for level 3, have shipped in the USA and a poster inside them reveals the kits that'll be in level 4. The Clutch Power blog has scanned it and as you'll see it's a bit of a mixed bag. The world architecture set looks great but the others look like a return to Time Cruisers!

It's shocking that these are still unavailable outside of North America, and as far as I know there is no timescale for making them available, either.

I'd say the MBA stuff has more of a steam punk theme, than the general mash-up/using up of spare pieces that was time Twisters/Cruisers. Shame this isn't available in Europe, especially considering Lego is from this side of the pond!

I have no idea what the ship is, guess one for the SW fans. The whole mandolorian back story to Boba Fett is ridiculous in my eyes, can't a character ever just stand on their own. Palpatines arrest sounds interesting though!

^^I've got my money on steampunk too. The tophat kind of suggests it.

Are you certain this is a new picture? I've seen it on HothBricks or somewhere else, when the others popped up.

We really need a campaign going to get MBA released in Europe. I'd rather they eased back on Cuusoo for a while and launched the MBA sets in other regions! It must be going OK in the US for them to release new sets...so why not spread the love?

What is the best option? Comments on their Surveys, lobbying through the Ambassadors, an online Petition? All of the above ;)

Make that unavailable outside of the USA. I had to use a friend's US address to order the MBA kits... :(

What about the Palpatine's arrest set? I hope we get a picture of that soon.

Hell yeah! And what do you Starwars original trilogy sycophants think of Clone Wars now!? Seriously, some of you haters of Clone Wars need to wake up and actually watch the TV series. I wasn't too into the Lego theme until I started watching the blu-rays on my home theater system... by season three your socks will be knocked off.

This wouldn't be the link I sent you, would it Huw?

Hmm. Surprising that 9526 hasn't surfaced yet, seeing as it's supposed to be released in less than a month.

If anyone in the UK is interested in getting the MBA sets, I would be more than happy to let them use my address and mail you the sets as they arrive. Just send me a shout out :)

Okay, I just do NOT like Master Builder Academy... I think they should have kept Brickmaster.

Interested to see Palpatines Arrest, as i just found a new 8096 Palpatines Shuttle at a toy store.

Remind me again, what exact proof do we have of a Palpatine's Arrest LEGO set?
