More 2014 Star Wars images

X-Wing Fighter

Hoth Bricks has uncovered pictures of eight 2014 Star Wars sets we were missing pictures for including the six Microfighters. Those of 76046 Coruscant Police Gunship and 74044 Droid Tri-Fighter came from Brickshop.nl; I don't know where the others originated.

Whatever, I'd be interested to hear what you think of the Microfighters. To me, they are just plain weird and don't appeal at all.

Star Wars + Lego + Super Deformed = cool toys.

I will get getting them all and think they are an improvement on the planets sets (which I also liked).

I don't like the microfighters and don't plan on collecting them, but I think they will probably appeal to the really young collectors. I have nieces and nephews that would probably like these.

That Coruscant Police Gunship looks EPIC!!!! :D

They are cute, and good for a chuckle....

The microfighters do have new parts that would allow for great minikit constructs, but they do look a bit weird... I will get the ones wit the new minifigs and the falcon, but otherwise I probably won't get ones like the AAT. They are aimed at kids, who aqre Lego's primary consumers, and I respect that. I think these will sell well though. They (especially the X-wing) remind me of those little quarter operated rocking rides that you sometimes find in malls or grocery stores for little kids...

I know what to do with the X-Wing!!

The police gunship is different than I was expecting, and looks a bit odd. I don't know about the tri-fighter yet.

P.S. hey, the X-Wing has the 1x1 round studs with the hole in them that I think have only been in games so far - those thing are incredibly useful!

The microfighters are rather ugly, but they do contain some interesting new parts (astromech head, printed cockpit) Also, I'll definitely be picking up the Tri-Fighter for the new Palpatine.

The Microfighters make me think of cars on a fun fair ride. I'm tempted to purchase some of these and MOC a framework to mount them on! :-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

^That would be awesome!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'll at least buy the Millennium Falcon one just for that cute cockpit piece. That'll be great for MOCcing a proper micro-scale Falcon. The MF is probably the best-looking one of the lot - for sets that are supposed to be 'cute' a lot of these turned out surprisingly ugly.

Some have useful pieces. The Star Destroyer has a considerable number (okay, 8) of 1x2x2 light bley slopes, which have all manner of useful applications. The x-wing has got those 1x1 rounds with hollow studs, so I'll almost certainly have to pick it up too because those are so useful and rare in the US.

Any info on pricing? I'm hoping for $7 or $8, but they'll probably be $10 like the planets were.

I am Star Wars'd out. The saturation of Star Wars set has defeated me and I can no longer keep up and collect. I guess this is a good thing since I have struggled between SW, LOTR, City and the Advanced Models. Love the minifigs, sad that I won't be able to keep up.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

^ Me too. 2013 will be the last year I buy them all. Next year I'll stick to 'proper' OT sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^So, just the Death Star Battle Pack then? :P

By in Belgium,

I think they're actually pretty good and will appeal to a wide market, kids and collectors alike, especially those with limited budgets who can only dream of getting the UCS models. All 6 of these are easily identifiable and will sit on a small bookshelf for display. Even non-Lego Star Wars fans might be tempted by the 'displayability' of these sets.

I don't particularly like Star Wars (burn him!!) but even I'll consider grabbing these depending on the price.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Strange concept. I suppose 'Chibi' models of anything are popular though. One for discounts methinks.

Loving the trans red canopy on that police gunship thingy (last of the CW sets to squeeze as much cash out as possible?) but the tri-fighter is just typical of standard TLG procedure for sets in the last two years - minimal redesign of a 2-3 year old set without a great improvement, then stick in an exclusive figure to get collectors to pick one up.

Once again, will save my cash for Disney Princesses!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The micro fighters are definitely a strange concept with vehicles with areas for minifigures. However providing they're not to overpriced I'll probably buy them and expect they will sell better than the planets (which I presume weren't too successful).

The police gunship doesn't really appeal to me that much and the gunship looks too much like the original. That being said, that palpatine figure is one I really want.

amazing sets, and I think there are NO stickers!!!!

By in Italy,

i love this set, they're cute and fun!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm not crazy about next years star wars line, except for the imperial battle pack and the gunship, but these microfighters are awesome! I mean the figures alone are amazing and worth collecting a bunch of, plus the fighters have a lot of great new parts! I'm thinking of getting the tri-fighter for palpatine unless I can find him cheap elsewhere.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think these will sell very well, as kids will no doubt absolutely love them. They look very playable and 'swooshable', which is obviously the main point of them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

All the Clones look amazing in the sets! I'm grabbing all of the sets with Clones! Also, what new parts are we getting in 2014?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The micro fighters look horrible but I can see why people like them. I would only buy them for the minifigures. The trifighter looks too much like the old one but I'll probably get it for the palatine minifigures. The Gunship looks awesome but the minifigures are rubbish, we should get a commander fox and a new version of asajj ventress

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like them.

By in United Kingdom,

First person to make all of these into a fairground ride wins!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Anyone else think of Family Guy Blue Harvest???

Gravatar
By in United States,

As toys, the Microfighters are a much better concept than the Planet sets. Instead of a model and minifigure that are incompatible, the Microfighters allow the minifigure to interact with the model. Sure, they're not to scale with one another, but kids don't often care about that when playing.

I'll at least buy the X-Wing for the Theron Nett minifigure and the Star Destroyer for the Stormtrooper officer, and perhaps the Falcon, though I don't need another Han.

Personally, I'm hoping this line continues and look forward to the vehicles they might release.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Cute and lots of useful parts. So much Star Wars though.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Not at all interested in these for my own OT collection, but they would probably make great stocking stuffers and random gifts for my nephew. The parts selection looks dramatically better than the planets series. Still haven't found a use for most of the planet halves I have.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Is it just me or do the Microfighters look like they have been designed by kids, kids that didnt neccessarily have any access to models of the real star wars vehicles or have ever seen the films...... Most of them look like they can be greatly improved by removing the minifig and adding a tile, slope etc as appropriate, and then maybe adding the minifig to a plate standing next to the vehicle....... like perhaps the planet series....

That said I will be buying some and doing just that........

Gravatar
By in United States,

As odd as the Micro Fighters appear, I might collect a few for parts and figures so long as the price is similar to that of a polybag: $5.99 or less.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Myorke 'Still haven't found a use for most of the planet halves I have.'

Do you have a Chrismas Tree and/or Festivus Pole in your household?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The Microfighters look like they are getting ready to offer some sort of Mario Kart game in the future.

Gravatar
By in Austria,

I suppose they will the ideal present for small Star Wars fans - my son will appreciate them!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I foresee these not selling well, just like the Planet series. The Death Star Battle Pack is all I'm getting. I like the Imperial Officer and Theron Nett minifigs though, but will probably just buy them separately on Bricklink. I'm sure they'll be cheaper than buying the entire Microfighter set. I really hope they give a lot of love to the OT in the second half of 2014. Ah well, I need to save money for the Ewok Village and Superheroes sets anyways.

Gravatar
By in United States,

They need to do this with the Marvel sets, and put a Hulk minifig in a meet microbuilt Helicarrier. That way it would be close to scale :D

That being said, these don't look bad. I might pick some of these up, and I'm not much of a SW fan. Han Solo's head looks a little out of place just sticking out into space, though.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

These look good - lots of usable pieces and good minifigures. I'm not sure what's wrong with them considering the price LEGO wanted to hit with them. If they were to make actual scale models, you'd get another speeder bike, maybe another STAP, and that's about it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Man oh man, these are great! I try to avoid space sets that are above 100 pieces or so, for financial and self-control reasons, so many times I have looked at SW sets and thought, "Yeah, it's nice, but it's just too big!" And the planetary sets didn't have minifigs, so were less fun that way. but these are just the kind of scout-class sets I love! I hope they stick around and aren't like polybags that have one run, and then are gone. I might pick up more than one of these!

Gravatar
By in Venezuela,

Did anyone note that the art of the boxes are supposed to be place side by side 75028 with 75029, 75030 with 75031, and 75032 with 75033. One box complements the other

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

From a child's prospective (who these sets are aimed at after all) these sets are a great idea.
Affordable, swooshable, vehicles that minifigures fit into.

I think they are a much better offering than the planet series.

Well done TLG.

Gravatar
By in United States,

i personally dislike the microfighters, might get a few of the turbo tank just 4 the clone trooper :P

Gravatar
By in United States,

They are adorable! If they are $5 I'll get some!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think they are cool, and a good follow-up to the planet sets. I'll probably get the OT ones, but so far 2014 looks to be an inexpensive year for SW sets.

Gravatar
By in Guatemala,

These sets are totally cool, hopefully it's going to be a cheap way to get new parts and complete your SW minifigure army. My guess is that microfighters will replace the planets series in the future.

Gravatar
By in United States,

They remind me of those convention special sets from last year (landspeeder and Darth Maul's infiltrator). I wonder if the artificially high interest in those sets drove a decision to release mass-market versions...or if these are just a continuation of the planet sets. Either way, I'll get them all, just like all the other SW sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm not up on my SW facts, but I would have thought that the Coruscant Police Gunship would include some type of Coruscant Police figure, be it an officer or pilot??? Why just more repeat figures? You would think this is a chance for LEGO to insert some obscure awesome fig to make us buy this set.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^ From memory, the Coruscant Police Gunship was used by Shock Troopers and Anakin in the search for Ahsoka when she went AWOL at the end of the last season of The Clone Wars - looks quite accurate to me, but I thought it looked a bit odd in the show too.

Love the Micro Fighters! we need more cute interpretations instead of just re-releases of sets. I have to admit though that this Summer with the re-releases the building techniques and parts used make much better sets than previous offerings.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Nelly7072, I havn't watched the show, but the red clone trooper is the 'police' figure. ;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Probably won't get them, but they certainly look interesting.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@refriedbeans: There's no way these will be $5. They'll be at least $10.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Lego had one job.... to make the gunship from Star Wars Bounty Hunter. Instead, they chose the CW version..... I'm going to go cry in the corner for now.

Gravatar

By in United States,

As a lifelong Lego and SW fan this wave is very dissapointing. The Microfighters look odd, especially with the minifigures sitting in them. The minifigures themselves for this wave range from good to great and are going to be my main motivation for buying most of these sets. Although yet again some of the same familiar characters we already have dozens of, rather than doing more never before seen figs, which theres a million good ones to do, in the SW Universe. The new Clones are good and probably the only reason I'd consider buying the Coruscant Police Gunship, which is a poor version of an irrelevant Clone Wars ship. The Battle Packs look good overall, except for the lame version of the Swamp Speeder, that thing looks sickly. Also I know kids like the shooting features of the new guns but please make some new SW weapons that at least half-way resemble the real ones. I'm spending a fortune on after market weapons to out-fit my figs properly. Mostly this wave is full of rehashed sets, and not even the ones that needed redone! Another Anakin's Jedi Interceptor?! Another V-Wing Fighter?! Another Droid Tri-Fighter?! How about a doing a couple of the Microfighters in full size, like a new TIE Interceptor or new AAT? Oh well, I guess I'll save some money this year. Hopefully the summer wave will be either more original or have some redone vehicles that are actually needed.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am really impressed with the CPG. It is certainly the highlight of the 2014 line. I don't plan on getting it but it looks incredible. It's appeared in my favorite arc of the tv series so it's cool that it get's made in LEGO.

It seems really early to get a new Tri-fighter. The last one came out only four years ago but I'll probably get the new one anyway. The improvements to the set don't look very significant but it will be nice to have one at college.

One day they are going to remake the TIE bomber and Obi-Wan's Delta 7. One day...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Anyone know the human dude in the tri-fighter?

Gravatar
By in United States,

^Chancellor Palpatine. ;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

These I'm guessing are the replacement to the planets series.

These sort of look like the exclusive sets a number of years ago: A small, undersized vehicle with a minifigure pilot.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm still upset that the series 4 build-able galaxy didn't get released for the US, even online only would have been nice. But as an adult collector with no kids, I liked to display the build-able galaxy models in the cubicle. They made nice display pieces. These do not fit that bill for me.

I do think the kids will grab them up though, and since going forward Im only collecting Ep IV-VI (leaving only 1 new set for me this round!) I may end up grabbing a Falcon, X-wing and/or the Tie anyway.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yay Super Deformed LEGO sets !!! This will be popular amongst most anime fans.

I am in for the 4 fighters/ships, not so sure about the tanks though

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think these look super fun! Super deformed, chibi, whatever you call them they are unique and fun and sure to be a hit with kids and adults.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Since I don't have any Star Wars sets, these appeal to me. It's a cheaper way to get a range of cool Star Wars sets for display (and for my son's little hands).
I can't imagine a 5-year old building 10179, but 75030 I could...

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Dammit! These hit all the right buttons for me. TLG really understands "shut up and take my money."

Gravatar
By in United States,

Meh...I might get a couple just because they look fairly inexpensive...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Coruscant Police Gunship looks great, however as many of you have said, the Tri-Fighter is a repetition of the 2010 version. All I like about the Tri-Fighter is the new Palpatine. I was disappointed with the lack of Commander Wolffe in the Police Gunship. (Lets not talk about the micro-fighters)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm in at $5 or less, but more than that and I'm not interested.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

A handful of people have said they'll buy these if they're $5 or less. Have you ever bought LEGO before? You might as well say "I'll get the next UCS model if it's $50 or less, otherwise no dice".

Also I never tire of comments like "Ugh, these sets are awful, I'm only going to buy one of each."

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm not a big fan of super deformed stuff. But I've got to agree with redbeardlegoman, TLG knows how to take my money from me. There is something oddly repulsive and alluring about these. I'll wait to see these in person before buying them.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Some of these are cute - I like the Falcon, but that's pretty much it. I might get a few of the others for the spare minifigures.

I preferred the planets though - I was stringing them up on my ceiling with fishing line to make my own mini galaxy (along with other LEGO Star Wars vehicles) - I guess I'll have to be content with the planets they released :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

To be fair, I think LEGO was running out of planets to make. It was never something they could have sustained indefinably. I think Mustafar and Utapu were the only major planet they had left to do. After they were done, Then what?

I'm not a fan of the micro sets but I imagine there is an market for them. The only ones I would consider getting are the X-wing or the interceptor but even those don't strike much of an interest for me.

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

Love it! Gotta collect them all! Now to hunt for those can exclusives...

Gravatar
By in Australia,

The links to the Police Ship and the Droid Ship aren't working, they have the wrong number (they should be 75046 and 75044, respectively).

I will probably get the Tri-Fighter, especially with that Chancellor!

Also, @ that guy from that show

I think they could have sustained two more series (6 more planets) - I would have been content with this selection:
Utapau, Mustafar, Kashyyyk, Geonosis, Dagobar and planet Yavin (not the moon Yavin IV). That would have been cool, and a lot of those planets would tie in with the ROTS theme of 2014.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

@Carlq Just my thought too... we got a LEGOLAND STARWARS THEMEPARK RIDE coming up!

Gravatar
By in United States,

For these last few waves Lego has clearly run out of ideas (why no UT-AT?), while the Republic Gunship from this year is great, it could have come with more clones (saving Obi-Wan, Ani and Padme for a Geonosian Colosseum set). I will be getting some of these sets (Utapau Troopers (fixing that droid), Kashyyyk troopers, AV-7 cannon, Battle of Saleucami, Death Star Troopers (maybe), Clone Turbo Tank (will probably end up buying like 5 depending on the price) and maybe the Curuscant Police Gunship (still needed a few more minifigures).

I hope Lego does a remake of the Tie-Bomber soon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, the Microfighters are pretty cute, but I'm still needing to collect the Planet Sets first, and for some reason, Series 4 has not been released in the USA! D:<
I was never planning on picking them up since I am saving for the Ewok Village and then the Planet Sets and then the 2014 Battle Packs, but if I had a ton of extra money, doubtful, and they were reasonably priced, I'm talking $7.99 at the most, perhaps I'll get them. The only reason I got the Planet Sets was to collect them because they really are just collector items.
I need too much money to love Star Wars Sets, I'm really having to pick and choose too much now. :(

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Mmmm, they're odd, and a little too "cute" for me! However, I feel that that my 8-yr old son will love them. Although to be fair he likes pretty much all Lego and and all Star Wars stuff.

You could see how this could spin off to the various superheroes franchise too...

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Micros are probably going to be $10 like the Planet sets, or maybe a bit cheaper like $8?
Not really digging them, but I'll probably pick up 75030 for the new Han and I'd really like the clear-windshield-thingy on 75031. Those two will probably be the only ones I'll consider getting, well maybe 75033 for the minifig too...
75044 looks nice and that big red trans piece on 75046 is awesome, wonder if I could find it eventually for an half-way decent price...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I will be buying them all, but for my kid. My son is 6 and loves just about anything that lego puts a flick missile on, or finds a way to attach them to anything that lego has "forgotten" should be equipped with heavy firepower. He gets irritated that star wars ships I have, which are several years older than he is, are not really appropriate for swooshing and crashing all over the living room, but he also doesn't like that there is nowhere for the mini figures to ride on the mini(micro?) scale sets, such as the planets or poly bag sets. These seem to fit a solid middle ground, in no way to scale or accurate to the movie ships, but the overall feel of each ship leaves no confusion as to where the inspiration sprang.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Once again Huw, I strongly disagree with you.

Star Wars has 30 sets a year, they are all redox and crap. The little sets re adorable and fun and cute and would make great ornaments or perfect for 4 year olds.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I actually think these are great. Nearly all of them have great minifigures, and the models themselves seem to have had a good amount of thought put into them. Unlike some of this year's bigger Star Wars sets...

Gravatar
By in United States,

These are oddly hilarious. XD

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I do not like these sets. Baby toys meets star wars Lego.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

The micro fighters aim at an interesting "impulse buy" price point, that is not covered by any other sets in the line. It'd be stupid not to cover this. I only hope they go for $7.99 and €9.99 - anything above (like the planet sets) would be too expensive. I will certainly take a closer look at the X-Wing due to the minifig. Aside from that, not too interesting for me.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It's something very different in a somewhat tired theme, they're great for interesting parts, and I'm sure they'll do well particularly with young kids. The theme park ride idea is a-maz-ing too!
Personally though I don't like them, all the things that make them stand apart really grate on me as a classic purist, seems I'm far from alone, but then why should everything be aimed at me? I hate them, the many people who aren't me are welcome to them! :P
(I might just have to get the figure from the Star Destroyer though, maybe the new-faced Han too, and the new X-Wing pilot... *ahem*)

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Interesting to see so many negative comments from SW fans.

I for one hate all things Star Wars with a passion, yet find these models lovely. Cute and original, a major improvement over the planets, and a much needed breath of fresh air in an otherwise extremely boring year for SW, even by SW standards. Doesn't mean I'll be collecting them, but the AAT is already on my wishlist for its parts, and I can't wait to see what the next wave holds.
