2008 sets at S@H

Posted by ,
Fierce Creatures

They have appeared in our data stream at last! To help you keep up-to-date with what's available I have created a new 2008 page which you can get to easily from the graphic link above.

If you're in the UK the list is currently blank; we won't be seeing anything new until a few days before Christmas at the earliest!

How have I never seen that set before...

By in Curaçao,

Good point David, I chose that because I liked the look of it :) I have changed it to something which _is_ available!

Gravatar
By in United States,

So, Huw, when will you have the new 2008 Star Wars sets? Is it only a matter of time?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great info, thanks for that!

I hadn't seen that new cargo truck until today. I've gotta get that one, the forklift is nearly an exact model of the one we have in the warehouse where I work :D

Gravatar

No, David1985, I saw it at ToysRUs last Sunday.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hope star wars will come out before christmas.

We get our product feed ultimately from LEGO. When they appear on S@H they will be in it and appear in the 2008 list.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just wondering Huw, why are you even calling them 2008 sets if you just got the feed from Lego in 2007?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think it's because they were due for 2008, but LEGO probably decided to be flexible.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, fighter, he's askin' why LEGO CALLS them '08 sets, not why they release them in the year before.

Gravatar
By in United States,

LEGO is probably referring to them as to the projected saturation date...that's when an item can be found readily at any retailer who regularly sells LEGO, and not just sporadicly at specific stores.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Exactly! Lego sets the due date for 2008, but unexpectedly finishes them much earlier. So, why not sell them earlier?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Because most larger retailers buy merchandise and set their stores in cycles.

Stores probably placed their orders for the winter LEGO assortments back in the summer and then took the information provided by LEGO (case assortment, box dimensions, etc.) to their planning departments where the next step takes place.

You'll notice after Christmas stores like Wal-Mart or Target will usually rearrange the toy aisles and move different products around on the shelves. Sometimes they even have sheets of paper attached to the shelves that show what goes where. These are called Plan-o-Grams and are created to maximize shelf display space and to save every store the trouble of wasting time and labor setting up its own shelves and trying to figure out where everything should go.

Now, with LEGO releasing its products in seasonal cycles, it allows these planning departments to work up Plan-O-Grams and determine when the new shipments should arrive in stores a little easier then some other toy lines.

Another consideration is existing stock. Many stores need to move out older stock before putting new items on the shelves. Christmas s a great time for this. By keeping older items on the shelves, it increases the chance they will be sold before the newer items even make it to the sales floor. If a store gets low on merchandise at say, the $20 price point, THEN they may roll out newer items at that price point as a stopgap just to keep sales going. But in general, they are going to want to sell what they've not been making any money on up to that point. This is also why a lot of (unpopular) LEGO sets go on clearance after Christmas, to make room for better selling and newer sets.

So, the best thing you can do is just be patient and use the extra ime to save up for everything :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, LEGO puts the new sets for the next year(in this case 2008) on pre-order online until january roles around then the sets are put into stores. For the previous year sets, the stores put them on clerance to help sell them by Christmas and if they don't then they mostly send them back LEGO, where LEGO gives them to sites such as amazon.com to sell them, I think. I don't know why we're getting them so early though. I think it's because the 2007 sets sold up fast. I think that's so because maybe if people found out that we almost lost the star wars sets 'cause the licese was originaly suposed to end this year people tried to grab them as fast as they could. That's probably why star wars 08 sets aren't here yet,'cause people are still to busy buying the 07 sets. );0

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, that's not what they did last year.

Gravatar
By in United States,

If you look at the Toys R Us sales ad for this week, they're advertising some of the new sets as a "2008 SNEAK PEAK!".

So, they're actually using the fact that the '08 set are tricking out now as a marketing tool. I bet that thrills you to death. ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

good idea for that, and deionychus, what exactly do you mean?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes, fighter, but those sets were on preorder, they didn't appear in stores 'til january. This year TRU has gotten really involved with the new next year sets.

P.S. I agree with you completely, deinonychus. ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, deinonychus, your right. These sets are awsome. The TRU website finally does have some new 2008 sets which include the following:

7647 MX-41 Switch Fighter (Mars Mission)
7648 MT-21 Mobile Mining Unit (Mars Mission)
8494 Ring of Fire (Racers)
7741 Police Helicopter (City)
8155 Ferrari F1 Garage (Racers)
7743 Police Command Center (City)

They all look great, and are available on the TRU website for fair prices I'd say.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, david, that's true and It makes me upset sometimes that TRU likes to add more money than lego does. But what I meant was for these set's standards, the prices are good. Just visit the site, you'll be surprised.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Look, fighter, right now I really don't care too much about the sets being on the internet, that happens all the time. What has really got me boggled is the fact that the new'08 sets appeared in stores BEFORE they were on the website, when last year it was COMPLETELY opposite.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, that is a good idea. What were we talkin' about in the first place. Oh ya, I remember. Look it doesn't really matter what year we refer to these new sets as. As long as we have them, I'm happy too, fighter. :)

But I'm still bummed about star wars. >:(

And personally I'd just like to refer to them as '08 sets. Nothing too it. ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Apology accepted. And I can be stubborn sometimes when it comes to being right or wrong. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

An easy way to settle this dispute would be to check the copyright date on the bottom of the box. I bought the Night Crusher in December of 06 but it was a 2007 model. This can be backed up by looking at the copyright on the bottom of the box. IF you check the last page of the directions there is a copyright listed there as well. End of story!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Alright, sounds like a good idear mister bmw.

Gravatar
By in United States,

look the reason why there are 2998 sets coming out in 2007 is because they are stocked up with certain sets. so they release them early for the holiday shopers.

Gravatar
By in United States,

2008sets i mean.not 2998

Gravatar
By in United States,

Look, bigz123, we already settled this discussion. No nead to go into it again. /:|

Gravatar
By in United States,

i know.:)
i was just sayin what lego told me.:)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Okay , alright, that's good to know. :)

I'm just tryin' to avoid "World War III," again. :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

hehe. i herd about some new type of lego coming out. some type of starwars set that hasent been herd of yet. the ucs general greavous starfighter. i think.

Gravatar
By in United States,

yeh i also herd about the general grievous thing. i think it was a masters collection set

Gravatar
By in United States,

and i also herd about a death starI. i think there coming out in march??

Gravatar
By in United States,

Um, guys, I don't think that it is a USC General Grievous Starfighter, I think it is a technic General Grievous. And they come out in March did ya say? Wow, that's early considering that I thought they were coming out in July. But, ya, that grievous set is totally technic.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hey, guys, did ya'll here abput another star wars set that is comin' out. It's called Sharp Spiral, and it SUPPOSEDLIY NOT FOR SURE BUT SUPPOSEDLY comes with a lego model of Jedi Master Saesee Tinn's Orange Jedi Starfighter(maybe with booster ring) and the Saesee Tinn minifigure. But this set is just a rumor, so don't bark at me if I'm wrong.

Gravatar
By in United States,

That would be cool if they came out with the sharp spiral with seasee tiin. i don't think it s a rumor because there are 8 clone wars sets comming that i cant wait for. oh The general grievous thing. im pretty sure i herd that it was a master collection wheel bike. (stuuuuuuupiiiiiiiiiid)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, then why does the title just say General Grievous? Guys I'm pretty sure that it is a technic set I mean when the title is just a characters name then it's a technic set. And besides what if it was designed with spring-loaded arms, that would be so cool. And, oh that's what the 8 clone wars sets are, ooooooh I thought ya'll were talkin' about those new battle backs, you know the ones that come with rare figs, like one set only comes with the characters mace windu, kit fisto, luminara unduli, and ayla secura.

Gravatar
By in United States,

if general grievous is just a tecnic set (and im just saying i herd wheel bike and a saw a picture of his star fighter) i still wouldn't buy it (im not much of a general grievous fan). The idea of spring arms does sound cool. Yeh i cant wait for the clone wars sets. if they came with the wierd alien jedi that lego hasn't made yet that would be awesome. like mace windu not a light up (i hate the light up ones)eeth koth new kit fisto(ithink the new one is a little wierd, aayla, coleman trebor, seasee tiin and more that would be awesome.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ok, fighter, the true item nuber for the grievous set is 10186, so it is an official set. And woudn't it be good if it was a technic set then episode 3 would finally have a technic set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

ha! i knew that it was the starfighter. nobody beleives me:(

Gravatar
By in United States,

eccept fighter95

Gravatar
By in United States,

And me too! Well bigz when I first heard about this set I thought it was gona be a starfighter too. But when I read the title of the set one last time I thought nnnnaaaaaaaa it can't be a starfighter, or could it? I don't know, but I'm stickin' to my theory.

P.S. If it turns out that you were right and I was wrong and it is a starfigter, than you can rub it in my face if you want. ;D

Gravatar
By in United States,

sorry for the kind of off topic post but what about the endor set impirial imperseation or somting like that

Gravatar
By in United States,

Imperial Impersonation, you know 'cause han and the others were "impersonating" as Imperials when they entered endor in episode six. Now I don't quite know why you don't know this already 'cause I've explained it to you before. I'm sorry if it seems like I'm bein' kinda mean but please listen up and I hope this helps: I heard about that set several months ago and I have not heard anything about it so far. It just hasn't come up 'til now. The only thing I know about it is that it is an Imperial Shuttle and it comes with endor han, luke, leia, chewie, and some endor rebel troops. I don't remember the item number, but I do know that it is rumored for 2008. I'm just excited about it 'cause I missed the first two Imperial Shuttles.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hey, fighter, I gotta say that it is really hard to believe that the grievous starfighter is a fake. The link that you gave us had a really convincing picture.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hey fighter, I know this may be an off-topic comment but how do find those links to those sets on brickshelf? And would you mind finding one for Imperial Impersonation, you know for me and littlelegoluke.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The picture is all wrong. On its name it says the wrong words, and a UCS wouldn't be in that sorta box. I missed out on both shuttles to so i'd be with the idea. Oh and the turbo tank starded coming with a non-light up Mace Windu and 1 more clone sometime, after all my friend has a non-lightup Mace Windu. Go technic Grievous!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Uh, I have a non-light up Mace Windu that came with the turbo tank and I got mine a year after it came out. And FYI a lot of things have changed for UCS sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

i have missed out on both shuttles but if there is a imperial impersonation. i will get it. sorry for the off topic but. in thelittlearmsshop.com they have endor leiha and han. but its 75 bucks!>:(

anyway it seems that on the replacmentparts page they have a nonlightup mace windu.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

In anticipation of the new “official” Ferrari FXX, I was comparing my MOC FXX (based on the Enzo - just like the real thing) to some photos of the new set. During handling the stickers on the Enzo cockpit area started to flake off in my hand as they have gone hard and brittle with the passage of time as well as peeling up around the edges. This is not the first older set with stickers on which this has happened and I would be curious to know how many other people have this problem. I just ask LEGO to PLEASE SERIOUSLY RECONSIDER USING STICKERS any more - can we not have only printed elements? In my experience some of these are good after 20 years despite being played with, whereas all of my snickered sets have just been displayed.

Gravatar
By in United States,

k thank u and wat r the links pleez.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm sorry, fighter, but I don't remember the item number. You see the set was only posted for one day on wikipe.........um let's forget where I got it, okay. Bottom line I was too excited to know that there MIGHT be a set that actually comes with endor rebel troops to remember the item number but I'm pretty confident that it starts with 76. I guess I should have considerd that before askin'. And wait I thought that you weren't aloud to use the item number in the search on brickshelf, right?

Gravatar
By in United States,

good idea not saying the name of the site. someone blasted me for that site too. really im not to interested in the impearial impearsonation just the endor troopers and the clone wars sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes, I have that expereience from gettin' barked at by David1985. And maybe this set will be differently designed you know with some cool extras.

Gravatar
By in United States,

yeh david barked at me for the sith too. i guess i just don't like the look of the set. again i really want the clone wars sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ugh, me too. I can't wait to figure out what they are.

Gravatar
By in United States,

i thought i found the imperial impersonation set but i couldnt find it anywhere. is this a ucs set?

Gravatar
By in United States,

no it is not Bigz

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, it's not a UCS set. Well, what do you think bigz? Could it be a UCS set? I don't think it could 'cause I don't know does an imperial shuttle sound like a good UCS set to you?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hey guys, I was searchin' around on brickshelf for the 10188 set and you'll never guess what I found. I don't know if it is an actuall set but it looks pretty official. The set is called 10086 Starspeeder 3000. Here's the link:

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=394260

If you notice, you can find an R2-D2 figure.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Leggodt, look at the box. it also has badly applied stickers, and some old grey pieces and some new ones. It also looks like it has stains on the picture, but that could be from cutting this model out of its surroundings and pasting it on a star wars cover.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I know, I understand. But I just thought it looked interesting, and all this talk of new 2008 sets really got me motivated to tell ya'll.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya i dont like the shape of it

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, has anyone ever heard of a starspeeder 3000?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, me neither.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's one of the "Tour Shuttles" from the Star Tours motion ride at the Disney MGM parks. In-universe the Star Tours Travel Agency uses them to scoot tourists around sites of galactic interest.

The one on Brickself is just a slick custom, as well the "UCS Grevious Starfighter"

So...news commenting is a discussion board now? :P

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, that would explain its weird shape, but what's up with the artoo minifig?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Uh huh, I see. Interesting video by the way.

Gravatar
By in United States,

8296 is out

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's the technic Dune Buggy, I believe. And it can't be 'cause it still has that "(not yet released)" thing next to it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

okay..i just got back and saw that some people were asking me aboout the imperial impersonation not being a ucs. well the sand crawler was a ucs and had minifigs. who knows if this one is one or not. we dont have pictures of it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone know when the sw sets will be up on LEGO? They've taken off a lot of the older sets so they could soon be appearing.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Actually, the way sets are put into the UCS category is if either the set is a NEW and highly detailed version of a previous set, or the set is very expensive like over $100. The UCS sandcrawler set was the first and only sandcrawler so for and there is no news of a new one and it was retailed for over $100 so it didn't matter if it came with characters it still qualified for a UCS set.

Now the UCS Millenium Falcon is the exception to those qualifications since it is LEGO's biggest set ever.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I bought it last night from the Lego store in Denver so yeah, it's out. I like it.. has feeling of a 8832 sans studs.

Also picked up 7670 (Hailfire Droid & Spider Droid) It has a wonderful collection or parts for such a small set. Brown chains, two large transparent 'radar dishes' and a new part I have never seen before. It's a post with a reversed half peg. If that makes any sense to you congratulations but, imagine one of those light-saber posts (used for other things but....) then attach a half technic pin to one end of it. Now spin the pin around the opposite direction of what you would expect and thats it. Anyway I really suggest that set!

"It's the technic Dune Buggy, I believe. And it can't be 'cause it still has that "(not yet released)" thing next to it."

Gravatar
By in United States,

What stores are you guys getting these star wars sets from?

Gravatar
By in United States,

the lego store

Gravatar
By in United States,

oh the closest one to me that i no of is in san diego around 7 hours away. I will have to wait for eather toys R' us, target or the enternet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

That's weird why would they sell sets at the lego stores that are not yet on Lego.com

Gravatar
By in United States,

Maybe lego.com is just bein' slow. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

they havent really updated anything on there website.(starwars website)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Impulse is out!!! So is the mobile police station! the impulses are 3.50 EACH. RIP OFF!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wait, didn't they just come out? If they've been out a long time then ya they are overpriced.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Impulse sets bother me as well. The Advent Calendar is an OK way to build your minifig population. It usually comes with 7-8 minifigs and accessories as well as small, quick build items like those pictured with the impulse sets. At 25 dollars the Advent Calendar is a much better buy than the impulse sets. Watch for the Advent Calendars to be discounted at book stores once calendars are marked down after Christmas. Those of us that shop at stores like Borders and Barnes and Noble might even have coupons via email that can be used on a single item and buy the Advent Calendar. When I first read the news about the Impulse sets I was excited because I didn't know what these products would look like or be but now that the cat is out of the bag I am disappointed. They are cute entry level products but like David1985 has stated, you are better off buying small true LEGO sets such as the Final Joust which nets you two minifigs and 2 horses, 4 times the figs for just over half the price.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Today I spotted the new police seaplane, police truck and police station in Toysrus here in the UK

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, but there is something I never quite understood, why is it people in the USA get the new sets before people in the UK? I mean, the LEGO World Headquarters is in Billund, Denmark which the UK is closer to than the U.S. I mean it is all common geography, right? ):|

Gravatar
By in United States,

Phantoka is at Shop@Home now!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, and all the exo-force sets are there too; however, I don't know what's goin' on with the new creator sets. I haven't seen them anywhere. (:|

Gravatar
By in United States,

And after all of this still no star wars:(

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, what is up with star wars? We are about almost ready to enter the week right before Christmas and still no star wars. Usually lego.com is updated every tuesday, so lego has one more tuesday before Christmas so they need to really hurry up with star wars }:|

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I agree with ya- im seriously !DYING! to get a few 08 starwars sets-especially anakins fighter- and i live in the slow and steady Uk so i have to wait-but im ordering 08 sets from shopathome the first day of january which is new year
PLEASE LEGO DO SW SETS AT shop at home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, guess what, THERE HERE!!!! The TRU website now has some of the new '08 StarWars sets if you didn't know. The sets that they have are the Anakin's Jedi Starfighter, AT-AP Walker, and Rogue Shadow. But for some reason the Anakin's starfigter is temporalaly not available online. And the site says that thay can ship your product by Christmas Eve, but I don't know if that applies to the new '08 sets. It might. :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I expect that huge postal truck will be the same price as the police truck!
Hey, maybe the postal theme is gonna be pretty good (but I'm not getting it)

Gravatar
By in United States,

And also the TRU website has some of the new IJ sets like Indiana Jones and the Lost Tomb and the Mototcycle Chase sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

How much are those IJ sets anyways

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, you know that you can just go to the website and find out more, but they are $21 and $11.

Gravatar
By in United States,

thanx a ton leggodt for that info i just went to the site and bought the rogue shadow and the at-ap walker with tax and shipping $104. i have $180 so im good.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What website is this anyway? Can i have the link.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It is on the TRU website. Just click "LEGO" from the shop by brand on the home page. Once you get to the page, click on where it says "NEW 2008 SETS SNEAK PEAK." You should find a list of the sets.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Still No other Lego Star Wars Sets in UK, except the Rogue Shadow, but that looks like a heap of junk!

Gravatar
By in United States,

No i mean what is the TRU website link. i google TRU and nothing came up

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, I can't give you an exact link 'cause those types of websites have really LONG links. Just go to www.toysrus.com and follow the directions I gave earlier. I could give you an exact link, but it would be a hassle for me to post and you to type in.

Gravatar
By in United States,

i just checked but their not there anymore.:(

Gravatar
By in United States,

What are you talkin' about? Yes they are still there. Look I can't quite conmprehend why it is difficult for some people to find these sets. All you have to do is go to the lego portion of the TRU site and I'm pretty sure you'll be able to find them from there? Sorry, for the inconvenience. :|

Gravatar
By in United States,

WOW! Sith Assassin, I am impressed! :) There was no way I would have been able to get that link. And I am very glad that you did. Maybe now people will FINALLY be able to find those sets. Thank-you so very much, sith assassin! :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

thanx.... but all i did was copy paste.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, ya I've seen the paste, and I got to tell you, IT'S RIDICULOUSLY LONG!!!! I mean, I can't even copy it down, 'cause it's so long.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Bottom line, thanks. :)

Nice, Sith Assassin!

here is 2 more links that i think you will find interesting. they are both on ebay from the seller legowarehouse. http://cgi.ebay.com/LEGO-Star-Wars-Grievous-Bodyguard-Head-New_W0QQitemZ200182201661QQihZ010QQcategoryZ1186QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

this might mean that 7667 and 7668 are out. and maybe the clone wars sets are comming because of the body gaurd head.

YYYYAAAAAAAAAAYYYY!!!!!!!!!

Star Wars sets for 2008 are finally on the lego website! Thank-you dave for the info! :) :) :D

By in United States,

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, my target doesn't have them yet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

yeah when i got the hailfire droid and spider droid at TRU i also saw one of the indiana jones sets.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Hmm.. Last time I went to TRU there were no good Lego SW sets :(

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Not even any from 2008

Gravatar
By in United States,

i havent seen any at target but they are at TRU anh at lego.com

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hey, did you know that lego added a new star wars category? It's entitled "Clone Wars."

Gravatar
By in United States,

And did anyone know that LEGO was coming out with new star wars watches? Well, they did.

Gravatar
By in United States,

all starwars sets are OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

man i was to late.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, they REALLY need to fix that. They should do the "Prequel" and "Classic", just like you said david. And have an "Expanded Universe" subtheme with the two other subthemes as well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes i agree with Leggodt.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, david, what about sets that take place between episode three and episode four like the Rogue Shadow. That EU time period isn't part of either trilogy.

Gravatar
By in United States,

yeah we already know look at the other comments

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Those sets Fighter95 told us about look like overpriced clone wars sets based on really unlikely and poorly designed stories, which would be nice if there was only a few of them but not nice when there are EIGHT! I want a an endor shield bunker WITH EWOKS!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The Tie Defender Fighter95 is talking about is like a 'Tie' version of the Droid Tri Fighter from episode 3.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

My bet is that the AT-TE and Republic Gunship will cost about £80 or £90 each, which wouldn't be surprising!!!

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

The new AT-TE is motorized!!!

By in United States,

where did you get that imformation

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, legolover94, have you seen its box or is that just a rumor?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Imperial Impersonation... hmmm... that sounds like an imperial bunker... with an ATST... no, they dont impersonate imperials in episode6, but in episode 4! Where did this rumour come from anyway?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Um, yes they did impersonate imperials, 'cause remember they had to get into endor and the empire was not gonna let rebels in so han and the others had to pretend or in other words impersonate as imperials. And the set is just an imperial shuttle with some endor minifigs. Nothing else! And I found this set several months ago on wikipedia's list og lego star wars sets.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Oooooohhhhhhhhhhh, i was thinking of the part when they were actually on endor. Although, the idea of the ship did come to me, as i said in another post on another topic.

The manager at the place where i get my lego told me all the new star wars sets and also told me that hes 99% sure that its motorized.

Next Year lego is bringing out sets of doors and roof tiles like the old sets so you can make custom houses!

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Im pretty sure they weren't selling them this year. Well at least they weren't in New Zealand

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Lego S@H is selling the Indiana Jones sets! But its on backorder till 2nd jan. And its for the USA only. :(

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Also, the Town Plan is Available at the USA S@H!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

I just went there and it is. But you have to look under the USA shop.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Are you looking under the USA shop?? Because its only on the USA one. Go to the Exclusive sets and it will be there.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Any details of these sets, Fighter95? Are they on the Lego Shop (as if! The UK shop has NOTHING for 2008 still, and it's only a few days until the New Year!!!@#?@!!)

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Im pretty sure they are bringing out the complete Death Star!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I reckon that'll be rubbish legolover94, because the playset of the Star Destroyer was too small, but there's a conundrum becuase if it was made any bigger it would be amazingly expensive! Probably same with the Death Star!
(Does anyone understand what I mean)

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Yes i think it will be amazingly expensive but there is a list of big sets coming out and hear they are:

10184 Town Plan
10185 Green Grocer
10186 General Grievous
10187 Volkswagen Beetle
10188 SW Death Star
10189 Taj Mahal

if it is made complete then it will probably be the same size as the UCS Death Star. But they would probably make it a full circle.

Do you get what i mean?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm sure LEGO will think of some way to make it complete and lower the expenses. I have faith in them. :)

I've been waiting for a complete and inexpensive death star for a long time. ;)

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

yes. Thats what i think. it might be pricey tho.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think that the set will be similar to the 6211 set: big and in the "Classic" subtheme.

Gravatar
By in N/A,

Does anyone have the picture of Lego #7676? Just curious. I should check out the Toys R us 2008 Sneak Peak.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Na. Don't think LEGO has released the pic. The set is not coming out till august, september.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

The Republic Gunship.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Sorry to post two in a row, but on a second look, the 7673 is not a fighter for a MagnaGuard, but for a Utapaun P-38 fighter.
The blacked out minifigs also look odd.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Can't you carry on your conversation about the new SW sets in another thread, which is already talking about them?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Good point redfox :\ But soon this topic will be reduced to the archive. And, Fighter95 I expect these sets will be like the real ones when they come out, only probably with slight changes (remember the Indy sets)

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

If you look at the top of the first pic it says preliminary.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nice picks, deluckybrick. I think that the V-19 Torrent looks the bset so far.

P.S. I think I have seen a a ship that looks SIMILAR to the V-19 Torrent in a star wars videogame in which takes place BEFORE the Clone Wars.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

UK 2008 SETS AT SHOP @ HOME!!! WOOOOOOO!!! AAA LELU JAH! :)

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

it's new year's eve and 2008 sets well be in the shop.this set well be my mine

Gravatar
By in United States,

to answer fighter95's question. i am starting to think that the at-te is sort of fake. what im trying to say is that we all know that there is no blue stap. and that the picture of the at-te is just fliped. and those episode 2 clones in it,they were only in the battle of geanosias(sorry if i spelt it wrong)battle and the clone wars cartoon. and in the picture it looks like there in the wookie planet or felucia. which were in episode three.

Gravatar
By in United States,

oh and sorry for double posting but why were there no picture of the clones. there were just black blobs of stormies with names under them. um do clones now have names because ever since the clone troopers came out theve just been calling them clone/storm troopers.

Gravatar
By in United States,

All clones have names, bigs123, but there sorta weird, like most names in star wars. Examples COULD be Omikron, Bly, Manoa(sorry if I spelled it wrong), Cody*, and Gree. There are even clones that have numbers in there name like Alpha 121, Gamma 608, and Omega 417. I've even made up some clone names like Larx and Atch for example.

And I'm pretty sure that the clone type that the Kaminoans worked on for 10 years were in more than just one battle! And how do you know that Felucia was only in episode 3? The clones could have been there from the beginning of the clone wars for all we know!

Gravatar
By in United States,

my bad

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's okay, bigz. Sorry I had to get tough on you, but........you know. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

yeah. i looked at the at-te and found out that it wasnt fliped.

Gravatar
By in United States,

there is all this talk about the AT-TE made me look more closely. did you guys notice that there is a missle fireing out of the left side?

Gravatar
By in United States,

the gunship looks almost the same. the front guns are way too long. the the **** is that on the side of it? is that jabbas little pet thing. i like it. the side gunpods fold up, weird.

Gravatar
By in United States,

under the black (blobs) it says... 2 clone troopers (what only 2?) obi wan (again) asajj ventress (cool), and plo koon (finally more alien jedi!)

Gravatar
By in United States,

plo koon! i was begging for lego to make a plo koon figure! SWEET!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

YIKES!!! THAT GUNSHIP'S HIDEOUS!!! I sure hope it's a fake!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

And sith assassin, I hope I'm being rude but just to help your understanding Jabba's pet thing is a Kowakian monkey lizard who's name is Salasious Crumb. Just thought you might like to know that little fact. ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm sorry, in my previous comment it is supposed to read at the beginning "I hope I'm NOT being rude." Sorry for that mistake. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

thanx for the info. am i the only one who likes it exept for the kowakian monkey lizard and the big guns.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Possibly, sith assassin. ;)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It looks... um... actually, quite good! Except for the graffiti on the side, and the fact lego made it bigger than it should be to make an excuse for an overpriced set. It will be a big buy, since it is $100, i think that will be about £80(or £100, why is lego cheaper in america?), but if i saved up...

Gravatar
By in United States,

i agree it does look good

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Yes it does look good and i am going to get because i missed out on the first one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

im not. again i like it exept the monkey lizard the big guns and you brought up a good point the tiny wings. you should be happy with the new rare minifigs, and a new gunship. i dont mean to be rude but be thankful, its a rep gunship.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, sith assassin, I guess your right. But I have to agree with fighter; it really doesn't look as good as it should. I mean, that Kowakian monkey lizard on the side of it looks like road-kill. And I also agree that the lego company can do better than this. It's like what Ole Kirk Christiansen used to say, "Only the best is good enough." :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

...........?

Gravatar
By in United States,

To dwarf vader, LEGO probably hasn't made that Naboo Royal Starship set because it is mainly composed of silver parts, which are rare-colored pieces. And the sleek design would be hard for the lego company to duplicate, but hey, it is always a possibility. ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, but your point is good too.:)

Gravatar
By in United States,

alright i have found out that the republic gunship and all others are official sets!

Gravatar
By in United States,

WHAT!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! THAT GUNSHIP IS REPULSIVE LOOKING!!!! THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! <:|

Gravatar
By in United States,

a lego designer.

Gravatar
By in United States,

she creates bionical and starwars stuff

Gravatar
By in United States,

????

Gravatar
By in United States,

oh didnt read the last part of your comment. i called lego and asked for her name. i was talking to her about the republic gunship and all the others and she said."i have known about that for a while. ever since the other ones were comig out"

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wait, bigz, if you know this person, then please begg her(get down on your knees) and begg her to convince the lego company to change that gunship. PLLLLEEEEEEASE!

Gravatar
By in United States,

they will not. i already tried.:( the only thing i dont like on it is the guns

Gravatar
By in United States,

[Sobs] :'(

Gravatar
By in United States,

yes thease are official sets

Gravatar
By in United States,

but the bright side about the set is plo koon! he is my favorite jedi!

Gravatar
By in United States,

can you ask her for the pics of the other sets?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wait, wait, wait, wait. Are the pictures that we found official? Please tell me that they aren't.

Gravatar
By in United States,

they dont have them.:(

Gravatar
By in United States,

i ave no.idea what so eva. i dont know the website designer.

Gravatar
By in United States,

i do not work with lego i have two friends that work for lego but no friends that are managers. sorry

By in United States,

no. no imperial impersonation. sorry

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, wait, bigz, what does that mean? There not gona make an Imperial Impersonation?

Gravatar
By in United States,

im sorry Legodt. but i dont think there gonna

Gravatar
By in United States,

This stinks, and so does wikipedia. :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

they said there will be 8 clone wars sets right? rep gunship, V-19 torrent, AT-TE, TX-130 tank fighter, homing spider droid, thats 5. not sure if magnaguard starfighter is clone wars. tie defender isn't clone wars so it is probably droid gunship(heavy missle platform)thats 7. either the twilight is different or the magnaguard fighter is clone wars. does anyone agree?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Um, dwarf vader, there are said to be eight clone wars sets that come out in the SUMMER of 2008. Those two sets have already come out and it's still not summer '08 yet. ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ummm, lego star wars goes by american and european seasons, so we still all have to wait mister new zealand.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Dwarf Vader. I live in NZ to. Have you seen any 2008 sets in shops yet? There meant to be here in feb march.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Yes i have a trademe username it is brentyb.

Yea i saw those sets today on trademe and started calling up all the toy shops. But they dont have them in till feb march.

Have you seen any in shops?

I don't buy to much of trademe because they sell everything quite expensive. I just wait till there in the shops because i get discounts at toyworld.

And do you have a trademe account?

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Yea maybe. My toyworld keeps on changing there dates cos last week i called them and they said it was coming in this week and now there saying it coming in next month!!!! Anyway Is your toyworld getting in the UCS Falcon, because the Wellington toyworld is at the end of the year. I've already got it tho but they only getting in two or three. I know quite a few sets that are coming in and when there coming in. (Like the motorized AT-AT is coming in around august.) So if you want to know when they come in you can ask me. but i only know the Wellington toywords stock.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

They are selling it for $999.99 so you dont have to pay $120 shipping.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Na they don't have them. I want them but i will ask if they will get it in stock

Gravatar
By in United States,

999.99! that is insane price! Go to a TRU to get good sets, but pay the wrong price!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

U R right there Sillyquack!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I meant I agreed with sillyquack about TRU sets being expensive and the wrong price, Dwarf Vader! It looks as if 999.99 NZ is the RRP of it :&#172;

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ya, New Zealand prices are crazy high! I heard that this one guy bought a Tie Crawler for $100! That's insane!

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

I bought the tie crawler for NZ $100.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

But thats retail price and it was the only shop that sold it

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Dwarf Vader. K Mart is getting in the Sail Barge. I don't know how much it is but i really want it.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Well they have a Toys R Us so they must have a bigger range.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Toyworld is getting in around 23 exclusive sets this year witch is good.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Okay, ya'll are really getting off topic here! >:(

Gravatar
By in United States,

That sounds like the best idea I've heard in ages, dwarf vader! :)

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

They are getting in the Town plan, the Falcon, AT-AT, Rogue Shadow and i they are getting in all the 2008 star wars LEGO. Thats all i can remember.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Yea it's a pretty cool set tho. Have you got enough money for the new sets dwarf vader?

Gravatar
By in United States,

LOOK, this isn't the "what's the best purchase for a set in New Zealand and Ausralia" chat room, so please, find something else to talk about that is more related to the actual topic! Sorry if I'm sounding rude, but I'm really tired of this thread. >:(

Gravatar
By ,

i was curious so i checked out the clone wars trailer, and it looks like there are blue STAPs in it. if you look closely at the part where anakin is jumping from each one you can see a blue tint to the STAPs. that must mean that these are real sets because doubt any one would pay such close attention to the trailer as to make blue STAPs. But the gunships don't have that monkey thing on the side which makes that kind of strange.??

Gravatar
By in United States,

So, the blue stap is included with the at-te; they are not just some pointless box extra?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I dont want to get out of topic, but wouldn't having a topic with no topic at all turn brickset into a free chat un moderated website? Thats not what brickset is for!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I hope when the real set comes out for the AT-TE there are more than just 2 Episode 2 Clonies. Perhaps there is much more in the Republic Gunship! It looks like 'Asoka' is actually A'sh'oka. That's odd.

Can I also invite bricksetters to dicuss new 2008 Summer set preliminary pics posted on Eurobricks on this thread. I think the new Mars Mission sets are the best space sets Lego has ever made. BUT the new pics of Lego racers look really rubbish!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ooops, something went wrong inthe typing.
Here is a thing about salacious crumb, that monkey on the side of the republic gunship. It doesent say anything about him being in the clone wars. Unravel this mystery if you can.

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Salacious_B._Crumb

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really think that the 7678 Tie Defender set is actually the Droid Gunship 'cause a Tie thing doesn't have anything to do with the clone wars and these are clone wars sets. Plus, I think I know what the mistery 7677 set is. It could possibly be that Sharp Spiral set.[a set that comes Saesee Tinn's orange jedi starfighter(possibly with booster ring) and it includes a saesee tinn minifig and maybe a rare jedi minifig as well]

And the more a look at it, as a clearer picture, the new gunship doesn't look so bad. I mean, it's longer which makes for more passenger room, a problem I have with the first one; the front guns are longer which I can tell is gona be a problem, but the front guns on the gunship in the real movie are pretty long; and for some strange reason that Salacious Crumb sticker gives the gunship some sort of flare which opens up huge possiblities 'cause if you don't like the Crumb sticker you can just not put it on and using a marker you can just draw your own design then when you get tired of that design you can just cover it up with the Crumb sticker. It only makes for a better gunship, which I can't wait for it to come out this summer. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Not really. :| Just don't ask David1985! Or you'll really get something! ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

alright. to answer legodt's question from a long time ago whe he asked "are the pictures that we found official". the answer is yes. they are

Gravatar
By in United States,

hey Leggodt we lost are X-box post is not the longest post in the history of Bickset

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah, I know! This one is!

Gravatar

has anyone found pics of sets like 7677 or 7678. I really want to see them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I thought it wasn't even certain that they were actually real yet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

WOW! Bigs123, these pics are amazing! You should really give Huw these links then he can upload them to the site. SWEETNESS!!! :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am sorry for the double post but The sets that I posted the links for are now on the brickset website!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Cool figs, but what I meant was you should send him the PICS. Man, I wish that huw would post an article relating to this kind of information then all the folks on brickset can get these links without them being deleted. Oh, and your welcome! :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

I have sent them to Huw.

Gravatar
By in United States,

SWEET! I look forward to seeing them, and if huw posts an article relating to this then you can let everyone know that it was courtesy of you. Now all we need is a pic of the 10188 SW Death Star and then Star Wars 2008 will be complete.

Well, bigz, they've already hit brickset so nice job buddy. :D
