2014 Star Wars images

Posted by ,
Jedi Interceptor

Images of many of the 2014 Star Wars sets have been posted on Eurobricks. The images are a bit small and I don't know where they've come from originally, but I've corrected them a bit and enlarged them so we can get a better view.

Thanks to lomis for posting the EB link in the forum and jmags2424 for the email.

Ooooooh! Awesome! Now I think that the only 2014 images that are missing are the Chima ones. :D

So with the exception of the battle packs (want the death star troopers) and that cannon, they are all re-works of previous sets. Another Jedi interceptor with Ani? with new spring loaded shooters and firing blasters, but still do-overs of quite recent sets. Never thought I would ever use this sentence but.......

I will ignore Star Wars and save my money for Disney Princesses!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^ Chima, TMNT, Mixels and Technic to be exact :-)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Not a fan, sets completely minifigure based with uninspiring models. Nothing really new, not many new minifigures either except for the clones. Another poor year for Lego Star Wars (in my opinion :-) )

Gravatar
By in United States,

All look boring except for the Death Star Gunner/Royal Guards battle pack. Pass...

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

The battle packs are the only ones I'm looking at. Still want a Darth Vader at an affordable price too.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Huw, you're right, I forgot about those themes! Though I didn't realize that TMNT was continuing... ;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Seems to be a lot of emphasis on this new type of "flick-fire" piece. I can't say I'm too impressed, but who knows, maybe it'll be a hit with the kids. But the minifigures in the battle packs look decent.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Eh? What's up with the focus on Episode III? Are they re-releasing it on Blu-Ray or what?

Gravatar
By in United States,

The star wars sets have just been so boring lately...if it's not the umpteenth version of A, B, X, Y wing fighter, it's the too clunky builds (grievous's Wheelbike) or just the obscure...just maintaining their license until 2015 I'm guessing...

Gravatar
By in United States,

That's so cool! I've actually seen the watermarked Chima, Mixels, and Technic sets, but I know we can't post them here.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Huw, don't forget the next round of Marvel Super Hero sets - that's what I'm looking forward to most, though it may be a few months before we see those if they're planned for an April release.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@mars4life - I believe it is a spring powered shooter, which will be much better than a flick missile I think.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Alemas: Episodes II & III were originally scheduled to be re-released in 3D this year, but were cancelled after Disney acquired Lucasfilm. The licensees had already been years in development on the tie-in products, and I'm sure they didn't want to waste all that effort. That's why we've seen a focus on AOTC last wave, and on ROTS this time.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

That packaging design looks like it's 10 years old. Puts me off a bit. Anyway, so far only the wheel bike interests me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Those suck! Wow! haha

I do like the leaf pieces in the "spring loaded" set with the clones or robots and the speeder bike.

The best sets aren't show, the planet replacements are fun.

Is it 2016 yet? We really need the new movie sets.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Unfortunately for Lego my wallet is finally going to be thanking me for taking it easy. I'm not a big fan of the prequels or the clone wars cartoon so nothing really interests me in the 1st wave for 2014.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Eh... I'll grant, by and large they look pretty mediocre. :/ Those spring launcher pieces will be nice added play features, but the question is, is LEGO taking too much inspiration from Hasbro?

All the different clone designs look pretty cool, particularly the Kashyyyk troopers, and the A-7 cannon and Grievous' wheelbike both are decently designed. As long as the prices are good, I might pick some up.

Still, I have one question. What is up with that "stud-launcher" piece that all the clones are carrying?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like the new Blasters,though they'll probably only come in Star Wars :(
I hope there's some pictures of the Chima sets soon :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Are these even Star Wars sets? Oooooooohhh, riiiiiight. The prequels.... yeah.... hmm..... (back away slowly)

Sorry I can't help trolling the awful, awful prequels. But hey, I just learned they're continuing TMNT! Woo! I my brain would explode if they did classic TMNT - with the Party Van, blimp or (be still my heart) the TECHNODROME! Never gonna happen, though, I know.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Hmm. Just the Wheel Bike and possibly the Utapau Troopers. That's it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So glad the LEGO Group is still continuing their trend of great prequel trilogy redesigns with a bunch of Episode III ships and settings. I was very worried that with the 3D theatrical re-releases of the PT and OT being cancelled, they would not get around to highlighting Episode III stuff, which would have been a real shame.

Disappointed that Grievous's wheelbike still doesn't have a seat in the middle of the wheel for him like it should. The "sidecar" feels like a bit of a cop-out.

Not planning on getting any of these sets, since I stopped collecting Star Wars a long time ago and don't have nearly as much nostalgia for Episode III as I do for Episodes I and II, which were a big part of my childhood. But they're cool designs.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Not impressed at all.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

I like the battle packs, especially the one with the Death Star Troopers! And I suppose more sets are to come like the new Millenium Falcon,... Let's hope for the best!

Gravatar
By in United States,

^ Sorry to be a downer, but the new Millennium Falcon looks like it's 3" or 4" long; it's not System-scale.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like the smaller sets, and really like the Death Star pack. Not feeling the rest. I'm done with the PT and getting burned out with the CW stuff. I would like something fresh, either from the OT or EU. How amazing would a Yuuzhan Vong set be right about now?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ g33ky monk3y: Or a Lego Thrawn Trilogy set?

I do like the battle packs, but I probably won't do the bigger ones, though the Wheel bike is EXPONENTIALY better than the Ep. 3 version. I love the Utapau clones, and will probably get 2 of that set. The fact that only smaller sets this time are drawing me is a good thing, considering Lego Movie, Hobbit, City and Super-hero sets are also coming out!

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Not to be a whinger, but Lego would sell loads more sets if they made a few new Original Trilogy sets - instead of all these lame rehashes of prior Prequel sets. The only good thing about all those sets is the new Chewbacca figure, which looks amazing.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I quite like the majority of the sets, although the one I was most intrigued by, General Grievous' Wheel Bike looks dreadful, completely the wrong shape. Sad to see that those Royal Guards made it into a Battle Pack, I have no idea why that is.

The worst Star Wars wave for a while I think, but still not bad.

@Trandoshan - That is true, but the seat should not be nearly so enormous, it should balance in my opinion and I do not think that the model will with a sidecar like that.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ Brickmeister1138
Yeah, a Thrawn set would rock! I've seen a concept (Cuusoo maybe?) and it looked good. Off hand, what sets or ships could they do from that series?

Gravatar
By in Brazil,

5 battlepacks and 6 repeated sets. Most vehicles can be built with the pieces you already have. Yay...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

These are just recycled sets from 2005. I remember because I bought the yellow Jedi Interceptor back then.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks okay. I'll get the Death Star battle pack, and maybe Anakin's ship. The wheelbike looks alright too.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow Lego, way to ruin awesome battle packs with those lame blasters. Was excited but now not so much. Probably won't be buying any new SW set until they bring the old blasters back.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The TMNT sets are based on the upcoming movie and probably season 2 of the CGI show and not the awesome 80s van!

Gravatar
By in Taiwan,

Just look forward to seeing what the new shooting system is!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The art for the Utapau set makes it look even worse, it's so sparse compared to the other sets and really exposes its spindliness. The other packs are cool, but apart from those and the AT-AP though, a lot of underwhelming rehashes. I think I even prefer the cut down AV7 from the battlepack to the full size one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^The Octuparra droid in the Utapau set looks so wrong (one that I made from spare pieces looks better), the AV-7 cannon is a must for me (they could have used a more streamlined cannon that actually fires), finally we get more than one Kashyyyk clone in a battle pack, the Saleucami battle pack is a surprise for me (those new colors for the plants looks great). Will be getting some sets but I am big disappointed with the quality.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Some of the redesigned sets look scarily similar to their older counterparts...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I have a mixed opinion on next years sets.

I think the battle packs look excellent and am really liking them all, especially the Utapau trooper set plus the droid gun ship looks a decent improvement on the 2008 one.

The At Ap looks ok and the figures look very nice and despite the set looking similar to the 2007 one, I'm hoping to buy this set.

The rest, are rather meh, especially as so e of those sets are remakes/variations of rather recent sets e.g a new V-wing just three years since the last discontinued and an skin receiving another star fighter even though we received the fairly impressive interceptor set in 2012 (even if it was an exclusive). Plus another droid bomber set which looks near identical to 2009 one but slightly smaller. The grievous bike is just a disapointmrnt considering it was looking one of the. It's exciting and was one of the few remake sets were getting that was due.

2014 looks like I'll be buying less Star Wars than the last few years.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Why have the royal guards in the battle pack been given what looks like white light sabres? Can't remember that in the film!

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

Won't spend a cent on SW next year. Those blasters... seriously??

Gravatar
By in United States,

Anakins Jedi Starfighter is pretty much the same from 2005. Although there is only so many ways to make a starfighter :) Good for people that recently got into Star Wars.

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

And the nose of the V-Wing is plain ugly.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

These sets give me a feeling of deja vu. The Interceptor, the V-Wing, the Vulture Droid, the vehicle in the Kashyyk Battle Pack... it's 2005 all over again. :P
Oh, and it seems the new blasters have a built-in firing function as well.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I have a bad feeling about this.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Since I'm getting 10188 Death Star for Christmas I'm glad the Death Star Battle Pack is there to help fill out its ranks even more.

The Red Guard are carrying force pikes, btw, since I see some people above are confused by them. Basically futuristic stun sticks. They used to be represented by spears whenever the Red Guard appeared but now they've switched to this telescope/4l bar construction.

The Jedi Interceptor does look better than the 2005 version, and it's a nice vehicle. I might pick one up.

Other than that, though, these are all pretty 'meh'. The past couple years had got me back into collecting SW (I had all but stopped during the Clone Wars era) but I'm not going to be buying much from this wave.

Gravatar
By in United States,

As long as these aren't overpriced, such as 20$ for the interceptor, this could be a good year. Too bad Lego isn't bringing back the old clones.

Gravatar
By in Switzerland,

Will pass all of those revealed so far except the death star trooper battle pack... My wallet is happy :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

These sets look pretty good overall. I think that the battle packs are fantastic - especially the new Death Star gunners and the Kashyyyk troopers! The battle packs definitely seem better than average, which compensates for the somewhat derivative or repetitive and lackluster nature of the other sets imho. I love Grievous's wheelbike in the film, but this set does not look great. I think that TLG's new gimmick with the missiles, which look far too much like miniature foam Nerf darts, is overshadowing new set design. Anakin's Jedi Interceptor, in particular, seems to have little of interest to people who own previous iterations of the Jedi Interceptor.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^ I am with you. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thank you!

To alleviate some of my negativity, however, I want to add that the inclusion of Grievous in what appears to be a $10-15 set ($20 at the most) seems to be a kind move on TLG's part in the sense that Grievous is a favorite among young SW fans. Previously, the new version of Grievous (and admittedly, this one is somewhat updated and recolored, it appears) was only available in a $50 USD set, whereas this model seems to cost even less than the 2007 Grievous starfighter, whose Grievous figure was subpar to say the least.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Box style reminds me of '05/'06, as well as some of the sets.
I am most excited by 75034, finally getting Imperial Guards in an battle pack is a dream come true. Since Star Wars isn't a theme I focus a lot of my LEGO money on, I do drool a lot though, I will probably just end up getting the aforementioned set. But I must say 75037, 75040, and 75045 are all sets I wouldn't mind getting. I'll see what next year and Amazon deals bring (Granted now the sets I just mentioned will probably all be in the $15-$30 bracket).

Gravatar
By in United States,

i REALLY want those BP's they look great, others, not so much :S will get atleast 3-4 of the kashyyk trooper pack, the utapu pack and the death star trooper pack, IDK about the others... mebbe the wheel bike... well my wallet will like the fact that my favs are all under $20 :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

The new blasters look like a step backward to me. They resemble the old megaphone blasters.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Disappointed by the ugly clone helmets....
I'm most excited about the battle packs, AV-7 cannon, and Battle of Selucami.
Eh, the rest are ok.... I'm getting annoyed with these blasters though. Maybe Lego is trying to copy Hasbro.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Man I don't understand the hate. Aren't these the first prequel sets set during AOTC that are not from the Clown Wars TV show in quite some time? Those heads from those sets are terrible. These look more like the original release sets, just better built and better modeled. I'm excited for these, as I think the Eta interceptors look nice in LEGO form, and Grievous is a great minifig. And I love vulture droids, though this one looks too big to be minifig scale.

The blasters look really dumb, but I guess play features have to be added somehow.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think that these are actually pretty good sets. I'm disappointed in nearly all of them being remakes, but they are pretty good remakes. I won't be getting many of the sets since I already have previous versions, but I do like them. I'm not too thrilled about the shooting guns though. It is an ingenius idea considering their size, it just needs to be for something else. Kids are going to be loosing those studs left and right. I guess I'll be going to bricklink and buying a bunch of the 2007 style blasters and replacing them all. Also, if it wasn't for the 212th Troopers, I wouldn't be buying that set with the octutparra droid. They could have made it, practically minifigure scale and used a planet for the dome and be more creative with the legs. Something closer to something like this: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/19109 or if it is supposed to be the combat one, this: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/351039

Gravatar
By in Canada,

We finally get a new, updated Chewie in the ATPT set. Was wondering when that would happen. Nice to see the Royal Guards are back, if only in a battle pack.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I personally think all these sets look amazing, and the only reason I won't be buying them is because I am trying to get all the hobbit/lotr sets as of now.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think that Utapau set is a bit of a missed opportunity. LEGO should have included an Utapauan minifig, like the guy who greets Obi-Wan when he lands on the planet.

Why is the Droid Gunship listed as an Episode III set? It wasn't even in Episode III, was it?

As for Grievous's Wheel Bike - I made the mistake of not buying the original wheel bike set when it was available. And as this new set doesn't come with Boga, I'm going to have to pay the rather high price the original set goes for on Bricklink in order to get Boga.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Sabreman, that might have saved the set. As it is, 75036 looks like a really bad Cuusoo set. Very disappointed all around.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah!! New V-wing!!...oh wait just saw the last edition still languishing on the shelves at Barnes and Noble.

Gravatar
By in United States,

ya, ive never been a fan of the V-wing.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Not a very inspiring wave. I haven't bought a Star Wars set in years, I think they don't look so good most likely because I don't collect the theme anymore, I feel like I have seen everything and gotten everything needed/wanted from Star Wars.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wheel Bike... That'll be the first SW purchase in a while.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Might be prudent to eBay your Emporer's Guards before everyone discovers they'll be common and cheap.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Death Star battle pack for sure, want those gunners, already have a half dozen red guards.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Lego should really make a set from the games Republic commando or Empire at War. I'm sure every Lego collector would like to have a Delta team.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

is it just me .....i gave up on star wars a long long time ago due to constant retooling of old sets that became expensive and personally i think lego has dropped the ball .....lets see a major rehaul of the line next yr with all brand new sets of previously unreleased designs of ships from the expanded universe or ralph macquirre inspired stuff , maybe that might keep people intrested

Gravatar
By in United States,

I agree with what a lot of people are saying, and I do think it is unreasonable to complain a lot about these sets considering that we are finally escaping from the Clone Wars sets (some of which were good or excellent, don't get me wrong, but not ordinarily the minifigs). I was excited that TLG was returning to the prequel trilogy one by one when they started a few years back with Phantom, but these RotS sets simply don't live up to the hype. As @smarty75 said, TLG would do well to actually make some new sets that are not remakes.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Clone Wars sets are the only ones I like. Never knew people were so against them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

DEATH STAR TROOPERS!!!!!!!! WOOHOOOOOOO! Other than that, nothing of interest.

Gravatar
By in United States,

1. The thing LEGO's doing with all this playability (I mean the shooting blasters) is cool, but as a MOCer I'm more concerned with cosmetics, and the new blasters honestly look too simple and bulky to be of any use in creations. Maybe if they just gave one or two troopers the new blaster the way clone commanders have pistols that would be better; allow for playability and cosmetics at the same time.

2. I'm not too excited about the pricing on the new SW sets - they've been making them all too expensive IMHO which makes me sad (I want to get another V-wing at some point but they've all been so overpriced) because some of these actually look pretty cool.

3. New plant parts for Seleucami??? WANT

4. I can't stress nearly enough how happy I am that they finally brought Kashyyk Troopers back. No more spending $25 on them on BrickLink....

I really hope I can nab the Utapau/Kashyyk Troopers sets at the normal battle pack price ($13 here), because the figs look great. Let's just hope the prices on the rest of these stay on Earth...

I think they're really going with the bare minimum on the battle packs. Seriously, the Octuparra looks terrible but for that dark tan dome on top of its head looks rare so I will probably get it anyway. Here's a theory: TLG is making the "vehicle" component of the battle packs less parts-intensive to accommodate the probably more and more expensive minfigures? IDK, maybe they're just getting lazy.

After reading the comments above I've found that I agree with a lot of them; how about remakes of sets that actually fixed their problems instead of just rereleasing the exact same set twice? For example, pretty much every attempt at some kind of Hoth set sucked...and they stayed that way. Another thought: How about a new Death Star or real UCS sets the way they used to be made? That would be cool.

Gravatar
By in United States,

YES! 75045 has regular clone blasters! Finally a sense of normal.
stupid spring loaded crap

Gravatar
By in United States,

These all look great, I am really excited for the new Grievous bike. I am kind of appalled by the tri droid which looks like it was built by a 10 year old, and the Artillery Cannon which does not look as sleek as it should. everything else looks great though.

I am kind of disappointed that they moved on onto episode 3 so soon and did not make a Jango's Slave 1 for this years release. Fingers crossed for next year though. Anyone else agree?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Very uninspired series.

I'll get the Imperial Gunner battle pack for the new figs and blasters, and that's it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I see why Lego needs to redo the remakes. I mean, If you are a 11 year old kid right now who likes Star Wars and Legos, no major ROTS sets have been released since you were 3 years old, and thus too young for Legos. That is why Lego needs to keep sets like the X-wing and other major movie vehicles in the market: to satisfy kids who are growing up loving Legos and Star Wars. I am sure kids will LOVE these sets, and kids are the primary target here.

I do think, however, that Lego could have put out a few EU or more obscure sets to satisfy the AFOL and TFOL crowds. I would have liked to have seen UT-ATs, Bail Organa's speeder or even a Coruscant Fire Ship from ROTS. EU ships like Lando's Lady Luck, Kyle Katarn's Moldy Crow, The Ebon Hawk and Dash Rendar's Outrider would also be welcome. Many of us, even younger Star Wars fans, have read the novels/comics and/or played the games, and would love to se a set based on them every so often. The TIE Defender, TIE Crawler, Rouge Shadow and TIE/D fighters that Lego made were great, but I would love to see a bit more, even if it was just a set per wave or two...

I am beginning to see a pattern in TLG's Star Wars EU sets... an Imperial one...
And I am not counting TOR or CW sets, despite the fact that they are technically EU.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hate to say this, but it looks like LEGO might need to hit the snooze bar a few times and wake their Star Wars line back up when then new movies come out in 2015.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why are we seeing all these prequel double-dip sets when Cloud City has still not been revisited? I'd much rather have another shot at the Lando Calrissian minifig than all these clone troopers. I can't imagine buying another prequel/Clone Wars set at this point.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I have not liked any of the blasters Lego uses for the minifigs and I replace them with aftermarket one as soon as I can. Can't say any of the new sets are a must have, but I have collected all the other ones so I will get these too. Hopefully with the Rebels cartoon we will get more OT looking sets and not more prequel.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm a scifi and Lego fan, and have bought a lot of SW Lego in the past, but don't see anything there to tempt an AFOL.

Maybe they'll finally discount the B-wing and I can complete the original trilogy set...

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Ha... I am so not a Starwars-fan*, and looking at these sets the only one I found slightly interesting is General G's Wheel Bike - which it seems like the rest of you dislike.

(*well, I did buy the GunganSub on an offer to get to Amidala)

Gravatar
By in Italy,

I'll get only the Death Star battle pack. But those new blasters...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Seems like a lot of people have already said my position - really not fussed about the prequels!
Saying that, I'm sure the Kashyyyk battle pack will be a huge hit, I got one in a job lot on eBay a while back and it sold for about £20 which I really didn't expect! Every other figure was more like £3 which seemed closer to the mark. The other sets seem alright to me too, but then I don't know how they compare all that well, and the new spring-loaded thing should be great for Lego's primary market (though us AFOLs often forget, especially with this 1980s based licence).

And I can't believe that's the whole range either, there's nothing bigger than a medium vehicle. Surely there's more to come, beyond the truly terrible looking planet replacements I mean!

Still if that's it then I'm properly drooling over those Death Star gunners and their delicious helmets. I wonder if this is a ploy to tempt anyone who hasn't got it yet into getting 10188 before it leaves the shelves for good. A few of those troopers and another gun would certainly bulk it out well.
And I'm thankful to TLG for letting me save up for something else, like a modular or two, or that Super Star Destroyer I kind of only half want...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ooo, I've just thought, if those weirdly bulbous mini vehicles that are replacing the planets series aren't in this set of photos, is it possible TLG have seen how universal the negativity was towards them and pulled them? Call me an optimist!! :P

The box art for the utapau troopers is a little....strange. But I'm glad they are going to have it! I recently bought a CAC commander Cody, and now he'll have an army!

Gravatar
By in United States,

This wave is a snooze fest. If Lego wants to rerelease SW sets, how about a redo for the fantastic Darth Maul head, or revamp of Yoda. How about a line of SW heads? That would be great, having Vadar, Luke, Hans, C3P0
on my shelf.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Trandoshan Huh... I must have misremembered the way it looked in my old Episode III cross-section book. I used to look at those all the time back when I was an avid LEGO Star Wars collector, and used them as inspiration for MOCs. Great resources.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

That crying sound you can hear is my purse and the moaning is my friends who cant understand my obsession with Lego lol

I wonder if im so excited about it while most others dont seem to be is because i'm new to collecting so everything seems more exciting and fresh

Well, anyway I'm loving the Utapu, darth star and the Kashyyk battle packs and well most of the rest. the Anakin Jedi interceptor and the V-wing dont do it for me but the rest WHAHEY!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Do you think the battle packs will cost the same amount of money? The battle of Saleucami looks large for a battle pack.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^I'd say from the set size and numbering, and size of the boxes that it's the Kashyyyk Troopers and Death Star Troopers sets that are the two battle packs.
Utapau Troopers looks almost like a battle pack, but the box is a little too tall. And the fact the Battle of Saleucami has a much wider box and five figures makes me think it's not. I wouldn't think they'd be much more expensive though, all the sets look quite small to me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah! Must get the Utapau troopers! I've wanted that forever! My LEGO dream has come true!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Darth_Bint: Hahahaha I totally agree none of my friends understand my obsession!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like the look of them.... Small and cheaper than the summer wave we've just had ....gives my wallet time to recover!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I love seeing new? (rehash) sets come out but the blasters as others have mentioned look a little .... :( even the blue lazer blast coming out of them seems to shoot with an arc. I think lego should have stayed with what they have currently.

Not to sound negative I also do not care to much for the new troopers we are starting to see this year and to come.

Wow, that's a lot of negativity from me. Sorry about that.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

How do all the episode iii sets link in to the film? I can't remember.

By in United States,

Will be picking up at least the Utapau troopers, probably the AV-7 and AT-AP as well. However, the new blasters look horrible. Glad I have a few dozen extra.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah, the new blasters look very odd, and I'm not very sure about the spring loaded thing.

By in United States,

@ zipsforbananas

Yes, having four "battle packs" this year is really throwing me off. I like to collect them all but I don't know which ones to get. The death star troopers and the Kashyyyk troopers are defiantly battle packs, and the Utapa troopers would appear to be one. I don't know about the BoS set though. We're just need to wait for the prices to be announced to know for sure.

Here's a crazy idea. How about an Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Interceptor set? You know, the red one he flies in "Episode III"? That's only ever been available as part of the 7283 Ultimate Space Battle set from way back in 2005? We've had 3 more Anakin Interceptors since but not one Obi-Wan. Get on it, Lego!

How about Lego quits being lazy and put some effort in the battle packs. Particularly the Utapau troopers and Kashyyyk troopers battle packs.

Utapau: The minifigs are superb (I personally love the new airbourne trooper! YAY!) and I'm glad Lego finally got the color for the 212th troopers right... Now the Octopara droid: now THATS an upset. I mean really. You slap a dome, some missles, and some crappy legs and call it a battle pack? Disappointing in that regard.

Kashyyyk: The minifigs are again, superb. I think that since Lego is stepping it up a notch in their minifig department, it is because of all the custom Star Wars figs available these days (Clone army customs, Minifigs4u). As I said, the figs are awesome (NEW SCOUT TROOPER HELMET) but yet again, the "buildable" part of the set is a disappointment.
When i first heard we were going to get a swamp speeder, I thought it would be actually cool. Now I've seen it. (throws up in mouth).

And what is all this fuss about these new blasters? Is Lego trying to compete with Hasbro? I think they are RIDICULOUS! Kids are going to be losing studs left and right. I don't even get how they fire...

The other sets: I for one, missed out on the ROTS sets back in who-knows-when, but I do see your complaints about the repeats. I am also getting fed up. Why not make another AAT? What about a Droid control ship?
Thanks,
Legos

^It's an ARF helmet, which I've seen as early as 2012.

^ Nope. Scout trooper helmet. Look at MGF's set analysis and some of the comments above. @FalconKnight

It has occurred to me that the new blasters are about the same shape as the original megaphone ones. Those were not an eyesore and I don't think these will be ether, yes they are bulky, but so were the blasters of yesteryear. Back then, we made due.

I doubt these will stay around for long. I predict there will be a backlash and they will revert to the old designs. I imagine this will be reminiscent of the light up light sabers of 2005. Until then, the best we can do is make our complaints known. LEGO has a good record when it comes to listening to the fan base.

I am the only one who loves those silly blasters?
I wonder how they shoot, or can they shoot longer 1x1 bricks!

I'm really liking the look of the new small star wars sets this year. I'll will definitely get the new battle backs and the v wing. The bigger sets look average for next year which is rather sad because i had high hopes for the big episode three sets. Some of the gimmicks aren't sitting well with me like the new spring loaded missiles. What was wrong with the old Technic shooters they were awesome. Lego bring them back!

I may get the wheel bike, a battle pack or two and perhaps the gunship or cannon. The tri droid in the Utapau troopers is easily the worst SW set ever (Even worse than the 2011 Sith infiltrator)

I do hope TLG have pulled the recruitment line!

The blasters look like they have a dark grey lever on the top, so a round stud would click into the end, and the friction would cause it to pop out of the end when the lever is pressed.
From that point of view it seems pretty good, compact for what it does. But for me it's still not good enough to look natural. I predict they won't last long. And studs will be lost, but hey, haven't we all got 100s of those spare anyway? ;)

I see bricklink orders in your futures.

The rumored 2014 Star Wars sets have SOME new but not blown away, overall. I THINK some may be misinformation.... another x-wing. There are two available now. I Agree with too much emphasis on Episode 3 BUT always a fan of the Wookies! Also, I wish they'd add some Yoda Chronicle sets... Yoda disguised as Darth Maul would be awesome.

They have re-visited Sand Blue, it looks like. That's made my 2014 already.

@Delatron:
I feel the same. A bunch of SW re-treads is a bit disappointing, and most aren't even interesting sets. Oh well, gives me a chance to catch up on other sets.

edit: Just noticed the sets not pictures: another Falcon, X-Wing, Clone Turbo Tank, TIE Fighter, and Tri Fighter? Sigh. I have to admit I am pretty disappointed with 2014's Star Wars offerings, but like I said, gives me a chance to catch up on other stuff I might have otherwise missed.

Those MF, x-wing, etc are all small sets to harness a newly designed minifigure (similar to the Planet series). It's odd that the Planets didn't sell well so they discontinued them, yet came up with almost the same idea again, only with a less useable build (at least to me). I liked the micro-scale ships and would have bought more of them, but I don't care for these midi-scale ships that can hold the figure. They just don't look right. But depending on how the figures turn out, I may buy a couple.

Ah, I did not know that. Thanks for the info. Now I am mildly curious to see them heh.

The anti-vehicle cannon, for being an incredibly late Clone Wars set (I assume) looks at least moderately interesting, but probably would be outside of the acceptable price range. Curious to see the recruitment line or whatever that's gonna be called, if that's going to be worth a look. I see where they want to go with these sets, and it's neat to see a trip back down memory lane with the 2005-ish sets, but like the Episode II theme it just feels like we've seen it all already with the heavy amounts of similar Clone Wars stuff over the years. Thank goodness it'll hopefully be the end of it with the Rebels series coming out soon and the general move to the original trilogy-era.

Not a big fan of some of these remakes, though Anakins' fighter is nice. I love the battle packs though!

Might just Bricklink the new Anakin, Obi-Wan and the brand new Chewbacca minifig. Gotta be budget-wise!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^I hadn't spotted that, is that really a new Chewbacca in the Droid Gunship set?
How many years have we had exactly the same figure, the only variation being the precise shade of brown? I thought when Jabba's Palace came out, full of new figures with new moulds and incredible printing, but we got the same old Chewie that it meant he'd never ever change! Hallelujah! Though I may also have to Bricklink him, what with my OT only sensibilities.

I like your enthusiasm, Zipsforbananas! I have a major focus on OT minifigs as well.

Hmmm...it seems as though LEGO is taking a different approach with these SW sets (usually LEGO will include something for the AT-AP walker or Droid Gunship to fight but no). 3 battle packs is good and it finally seems as though LEGO is turning away from those horrible flick missiles (YAH) and trying out some other stuff. Another big Star Wars cannon, a walker, a Jedi starfighter and one more V-wing...it is starting to get predictable but at least LEGO trys to change it up with the minifigures every year. I do quite like the Grievous Wheel Bike (nice new-ish minifigures). I was hoping for more from 2014's SW sets but these will do.
