New images of Star Wars sets

Posted by ,
Jabba's Sail Barge

Images of the second-half-of-year Star Wars sets have been published on the LEGO server. I've added them to the database, along with those of City and Technic that have were uncovered by Grogall and posted on Eurobricks earlier in the week.

Hopefully this means they'll be available from shop.LEGO.com soon, particularly as it seems they are being sold by Toys R Us in Germany already. (Thanks LEGO AND LAND).

P.S. Is it an UK thing to put noses in emoticons? :-) :)

I've been adding noses since 1995; hasn't everyone?

It's nice that Lego are giving uk early release this year especially with Lone Ranger and Galaxy Squad ;]. I hope we don't have to wait until august for these new models out as I badly want the Gun Ship, At Te, Sail barge and Duel models.

Huw,

We seem to get sets last and our prices aren't good (but not as bad as some countries). On the other hand, we did have the polybag promotions and we probably have the greatest density of Lego stores in the world.

As for emoticons with noses, a Belgian friend of mine who lives in California always puts them in. I put them too, but I prefer the tilde kind. :~)

All the sets were available at the Lego Brand Store yesterday, the boxes seem to have been shrunk down a size compared to earlier sets of those pricepoints. The Corporate Alliance Tank Droid's box, for example, seemed to be smaller than last year's Battlepacks (Endor etc.). You can kinda see what i mean when looking at the relative size of the "minifig 1:1"-picture on the box.

I think I'm completely underwhelmed, and that's not even an anti-prequel bias. The Gunship is the only thing that really draws me. The sail barge might be more enticing if it was a lot closer in scale to the sand skiff I already have. I mean even the skiff is under-scaled for mini-figs, but this is ridiculously so.

Dang it! Do they even ever release Star Wars Sets early in America?!?!? D-:

LEGO really dropped the ball on the sail barge IMHO.

What does a price point of $119 prove?

They should have made it bigger at a $199 price point.

Then I would have bought it.

This I will not.

Go big or go home!

At least I still have the Tower of Orthanc to look forward to purchasing this year.

I rather like most of these sets with the notable exception of the Sail Barge. The front of it is very off putting.

The Sail Barge is my favorite set of this wave, it looks amazing and better than the 2006 version in my opinion.

I don't know if it's my computer but I see the thumbnails of the Star Wars sets as the previous pics (the picture of the set in the box), but when I enlarge them I see the high resolution pics. Does this happen to anyone else?

I wonder if these will be available in time for the Jor-El promotion...

The next wave of S.W sets (and City) are coming out June 1st. Jabba's Sail Barge will cost £99.99.

The front of the sail barge is awful. What a shame, as the rest of the set and figs are lovely.

I think the sail barge looks fitting to the source material. Although I don't love that price. I didn't love the Palace price either, so I waited for a sale. Thankfully they offered a sale, so I assume the same will happen with this. $119.99 is too much for too little pieces and not too many new figures. Plus getting an extra bulky Jabba isn't enticing to me. I mostly just want it for the slave Leia and her new hair.

The other sets are a little underwhelming, and it has nothing to do with OT/PT. I'm a casual enough fan I like all 6 of them, but I just don't remember most of these things in the movies and I have actually watched the PT most recently.

I am very excited for these sets, the sooner they become available the better, but as already stated, I fear the UK will be left behind yet again. I am gradually getting more and more frustrated at TLC this year...

By in United Kingdom,

Must agree here, it's getting extremely infuriating that Lego seems to be releasing stuff so late in the UK (by which time other countries are used to seeing them on shelves), what logic or reason is there to it/ The prices for the new SW sets seem okay though, if you switch from the German to UK pages for them.
To add some perspective to the emoticon argument, :-) seems great as the addition of the nose confirms that you are indeed a human being and not Voldemort.

Will lego release any more UCS sets this year? I hope they will make a UCS sandcrawler or an at-te.

I am not adding a nose to my emoticons, the original had a nose, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoticon, if you don't add one then _you_ are taking it away to create something 'non standard', if there is such as thing as a standard for emoticons!

The US TRU website has the new galaxy squad,hero factory and proboly all the othe themes in stock and sold in stores already

^^^^ We usually get only 2 very big sets a year, the second for 2013 will probably be the much rumored Ewok Village.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@yamaki you bringing up the rumored "ewok village" set might be right.
However there also is the rumored "yoda's hut" set also but when would they come out? Or would they be included with the August wave of sets?

Well MB Bricks UCS Sandcrawler is still in review on Lego cuusso. So here is hoping we might see some kind of version.

By in United States,

I'll be getting the Mando speeder and anything Galaxy Squads I can get my hands on. If I see the Corellian Defender on sale (or can use my points) I'll get that one too. I want it--but I'll be hitting my limit for the year with GS sets.
