Posted by ,

The rumoured list we published last week has been confirmed as fact at Star Wars Celebration which is currently underway. There are a few more details now as well:

- Clone Troopers vs Droidekas Battle Pack (sniper droideka)
- The Old Republic Battle Pack (2 x sith troopers + 2 x clones)
- A Wing with Ackbar, Han and A Wing pilot AT-RT with yoda, clone trooper and assassin droid
- Z-95 Headhunter with 2 x clone troopers, general Krell
- The Rancor Pit (as revealed at SDCC)

Planet Series 3:

- Kamino with R4-P17 droid and Jedi Starfighter
- Coruscant with Clone Pilot and Republic Assault Striker
- Asteroid Filed with Tie Bomber and Tie Pilot

(from RebelScum via GrooveBricks)

Also at SWC, there's another exclusive set-in-a-tin available, this time it's Slave 1 and Boba Fett. I haven't seen any pictures of the actual set yet but you can find one of the tin at Hoth Bricks, among other places.

I think you put up the wrong celebration logo. Thats for celebration 4.

Sweet, R4-P17. As a fan of the R-unit droids, this is an easy way to acquire color variation. Love the Z-95, but lost some interest due to included mini-figure list. I'm sure this will sell great with Clone Wars cartoon fans though. It will be interesting to see what Ackbar looks like, if it is a new torso, or similar to earlier versions. Might be saving money while waiting for Jawas and Sand People to be offered again. Great line-up for some fans, for sure - I'm just not really feeling it (yet) as an OT fan.

Would it kill LEGO to release an affordable set with Darth Vader in it? Seriously, it must've been half a decade since a Darth Vader minifigure appeared in a somewhat cheap set.

I'm sorry, but all of these sets (save for the Rancor) sounds pretty terrible...

YES, Old Republic BP! I'm also hoping for a movie-style Yoda.

I'm with you Spency13, all boring except the Rancor!

Gravatar

That's because you guys have seen the rancor set. Don't judge until we see some photos.

The new retailers Lego 2013 catalogue has been released to retailers a few days ago, there are a few bits of leaked information on the super heroes 2013 sets aswell as star wars 2013 sets (the same sort of information as Huw has said) if you are interested in hearing some information of the new 2013 sets just search on google, Lego 2013 retailers catalogue and there is a thread on eurobricks.com about the new super hero sets (the guy with the info on it is called hulk_smash)

pretty legit

Good, but in the droideka battle pack, dont use CW clones, use P2 or original P1 armor.

omg a pong krell minifigure!

@Graysmith - Don't forget the Winter 2009 Vader's TIE Fighter. A strong set for $30 with a good parts selection, printed piece selection, and the 2008 Darth Vader figure. That's about as affordable as you can get with a DV fig.

Clone trooper overload. Like we need more. Sorry but these all sound boring except for the rancor pit.

the A-Wing has me interested. Hope Ackbar is re-done for the set too

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like the sound of this Planet Series, especially the Asteroid Field one! I'm hoping there's several asteroids with new molds. And I think a re-done Jango Fett would've been a nice minifig for Kamino...

Want the sith troopers :D

I'm not a big Star Wars fan, but I have picked up a couple BPs in the past for the awesome minifigs, and I know that Droidekas are COOL, so I'll probably grab that Battle Pack when I see it.

Hopefully the sniper Droidekas are easy enough to modify into regular ones, though. They're just more recognizable and look better, IMO.

Gah, they keep describing the "Good Guys" in the Old Republic battlepack as "clones". There were NO CLONES. Special Ops Republic troops wore a kind of plastoid white armor very similar to later clone and stormtrooper armor. That's probably what is included in the set. Anyway, good to see that list confirmed. I wish Attack of the Clones got more love, though. It's bad enough the merchandising people at Lucasfilm decided to focus on Attack of the Clones in 2013 to coincide with the 3D release instead of the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi. Now it seems like nobody knows what exactly to promote. Thematically, the focus of Star Wars next year looks to be confusing, and that's not just for Lego.

Oh well, 2012 was such a great year for SW legos so i didn't have the money and time to really get into the Superheroes sets, so honestly im fine with this line being this bland because now i'm finally getting to feast myself in superheroes sets. I'm still pretty excited for the 2013 UCS sets thought, the B-Wing didn't overly intererest me, no matter how beautiful the design was.

Like I said before when they were rumored, I'm only interested in the planets, A Wing, Rancor Pit, and ATRT. As for which movie they're focusing on, I'd be safe to say ROTJ. I know Disney is also doing ROTJ at their parks as well.

I'll reserve judgement until I see pics. Right now, only the Rancor pit and Sith trooper battle pack sounds good.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

yes! general krell has been released in lego! hopefully the clone trooper v.s. sith trooper battle pack will come in a different phase from the normal ones.

Gravatar

Headhunter looks almost the same as an X-wing. Whole list so far sounds boring except for the Rancor Pit.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I will assume that the clones mentioned in the Old Republic Battle Pack are in fact Old Republic Troopers, and as long as they include helmets I am very happy with those.

The AT-RT with Yoda, a Clone Trooper and an Assassin Droid sounds most intriguing, I can remember no such event in the Clone Wars, so perhaps it will be a PT set which would be welcome, especially to get a new movie Yoda!

General Pong Krell sounds great, and I very much hope we get some kind of specific trooper in the Headhunter, be it phase 2 Captain Rex, Hardcase, Fives or even jut some general 501st troopers with the blue highlights on their armour.

I am still fascinated by that Republic Assault Striker Planet set, what is that? Could it be a mini version of the Striker-Class Starfighter? Surely if it is, that will have to be an Old Republic Pilot which would be fantastic as they have a really unique look about them.

That's awesome news, can't wait for the Z-95 and A-wing.

I like how so many people think a wave will suck, and then they see pictures and change their minds...

Gravatar
By in United States,

or, they see pictures, change their minds, and then when the product is on the shelves they don't buy because the product kinda sucks. This was my reaction to Lord of the Rings: Announcement = excited. List of sets without pics = excited. Pics of sets = not so excited. Found on Shelves = waiting for 80% off sale.

This summer's Star Wars line = 3 sets I was interested in buying. Bought 5 due to completionist-gene for those planet sets.

List shown so far, hoping pictures will change my mind... but ready to save money instead.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Sounds pretty good. Maybe we will finally get some phase 2 outta this. Though what a Z-95 is doing in the Clone Wars is beyond me. Sniper Droidekas sound cool though.

^They are in there, if you saw any of the earlier seasons, then the V-19 Torrent from that has been replaced by the Z-95 Headhunter as the main fighter for the Republic along with ARC-170s. They have only had fairly minor roles so far, just as ships you see during a space battle etc.

heads up the AT-RT and Clone Wars battlepack r mine! :)

By in Netherlands,

I think Planet series 4 will be:
- Hoth - AT-AT - AT-AT trooper
- Geonosis - Geonosian Starfighter - Geonosian
- Dagobah - ??? - Yoda (not the Clone Wars version)

Gravatar
By in United States,

WHA-? They have Kamino and...they give us a droid, instead of a Kaminoin (However you spell that)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Would love the AT-RT, but having Yoda in it really makes it not very good. It should be replaced with a generic Jedi (like Jedi Bob from the old gunship).

Gravatar
By in Italy,

I hope lego will use old phase 2 clones instead of creating a new version! I lost hope in the old phase 1 trooper (the best, in my opinion). I also hope to see a movie-like yoda in the AT-RT set (probably its price will be otrageous for a set of this size, as usual since some years) because i really dislike the clone wars version(always my opinion).
Over all: i like this list, hope their price won't be too high

Gravatar
By in United States,

They all sound great to me don't see how so many think they are boring
Can't wait for pics

By in United Kingdom,

i want the clone troppers to be phase 2 but with a printed visor so we can have the clone wars head underneath instead of a normal black head. hopefully with the new barc speeder we get a season 3 obi wan and phase 2 rex!
we want pics!!
