Wow.......... thats about 90% wanted......... bless my credit card......

Nice group of sets for once.
Definitely some multiple buys there as well for troop building and dioramas.
I sense a sharp pain in my wallet once again!

Gravatar
By in United States,

THRAWN!?!?!??!!? Yes!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

BPs and the Microfighters are definite buys. It doesn't look like the wings will fold out on the U-Wing but I could be wrong.

Just noticed: where is the TIE Striker micro?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like them all, except for Duel on Naboo. I might even buy a couple of Y-wings.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Why are they showing a shooter insert with the micro U-wing?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Two new Y-wing sets and Grand Admiral Thrawn? 2017 is suddenly looking much better.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is it just me or do the death troopers look different in printing compared to the ones in Krennic's shuttle? I like all the sets but the Baze and Chirrut build-able figures look bad. Any ideas on pricing?

Gravatar
By in France,

The duel on naboo is awful, really it's jusy little and didn't look displayable, except that, the rest of the 2017 sets is awesome and with the bunker with the death star plan from the droid escape pod, which makes sens.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm disappointed they didn't give Thrawn his signature red eyes. They gave Chirrut's minifig white eyes, why not make Thrawn's red?

I'm thinking I might get two rebel battlepacks instead of one rebel, one imperial. Not really fond of how that walker looks, thought I might change my mind if there are just better images.

I wonder if that removable floor panel from Scarif is just a storage thing, or if its a blow-up-able function like the Takodana set?

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

Yay! Nice new Y-Wing!
The rest is kinda meh...

Gravatar
By in Australia,

They are all quite dissapointing. Guess I will be spending my money on Elves instead.

Gravatar
By in United States,

These all look pretty cool, and I'm digging all the new/recolored/printed pieces in the buildable figures, but I'm a little disappointed with the size of the two playset style sets. I think both would have benefited from being at least 50% larger.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Duel on Naboo sucks, although most of the others are great, particularly Yoda's ship and the rebel battle pack.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I WANT THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These sets are absolutley incredible! Love Thrawn!

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Where is Darth Vaders transformation, the set I looking forward to the most?
I will get the Duel of Fates, Yoda's starfighter Imperial battle pack and the Shoretrooper CCBS.
I want a plain Stormtrooper and Clonetrooper as a constuctable figure set. A battledroid would be cool to see too! Anakin and Obi-wan (non-clone wars version) and Darth Maul are characters I want to se in the future as action-figureset, but as allways these days, I don't have much hope about prequel-stuff....

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Only death gang en vaders transformation,... then i will know what the damage is in my wallet :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Meh, not too interested. If duel on naboo is $20-25 it would be alright. Battle of Scarif wouldn't be bad for under $50, though if you threw in a small vehicle or two and a couple more minifigures it would make a nice playset. As it is there's too much space and not enough figures. Other than that both y-wings are pretty awesome. Everything else is more miss than hit.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The microfighters and Y wing are great! Also, it looks to me like the deathtroopers in Krennic's shuttle will remain exclusive for now, I think the ones in the battle pack have different body prints and no pauldron.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Hm, Yodas Jedi Starfighter looks neat, otherwise. Meeh... The Phantom looks to roundish to be part of the SW-Lego-universe.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Grand Admiral Thrawn! Duel on Naboo! Yes!

Gravatar
By in Austria,

Good to finally see the set pictures, but man, that Thrawn figure....what a disappointment. I'm desparately hoping that it's not the final design. Embarassing design choices (regular blue instead of light blue, no red eyes)

Sadly, I don't know how to make custom prints on unprinted heads myself, otherwise I'd do it right now.
Welp, if it IS the final design, at least that set is off my wishlist.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Thrawn!

Gravatar
By in Australia,

The Y Wing is a must and will buy an Imperial Trooper Battle Pack for the minifigures.
Battle on Scarif and Phantom for the minifigures as well.
Duel on Naboo looks very disappointing.

Gravatar
By in United States,

THRAWN!!! YES YES YES YES!! Finally!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Shoretrooper is definitely joining my trooper collection :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Those battle packs are must haves! Though, that imperial walker doesn't look that great.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What?!?! No X-Wing!?!

These sets look surprisingly nice.

Gravatar
By in Austria,

Can anyone confirm that the Y-Wing pilot from 75172 is the same as the U-Wing pilot in 75155?

Gravatar
By in Finland,

swedishbrick and allstyles I think that both of those sets are coming in the summer wave.

I really like the Duel on Naboo (althought it seems that I'm the only one), and not just the minifigures but I also like the build. Only thing I don't really like about it is the laser gate, which doesn't look like the one from the movie nearly at all.

The Rebel Trooper Battle Pack reminds me of both 7655 Clone Troopers Battle Pack and 7914 Mandalorian Battle pack and I especially like the ground cannon part of it.
I love getting 2 stormtroopers and 2 Death Troopers in one battle pack, and will probably buy multiple of both Battle Packs.
It's interesting that there's a Clone Wars set nearly 3 years after the show's end, and even more interesting is that set has the movie Yoda, not The Clone Wars Yoda, which would have been more accurate.
The New Phantom looks better than the 2014 one, with this one being smoother. It looks like you might be even able put figures into the back of the ship. New Kanan looks nice, with a hairpiece I assume is new. Thrawn looks weird without his red eyes, don't know why he doesn't have them

The Y-wing might be the first Y-wing for me if I buy it, since I have missed all the previous ones. The figures in that set are amazing with Moroff and Admiral Raddus.
75171 Battle on Scarif looks great, it kind of reminds of 75139 Battle on Takodana.
The microfighters are fine and i will not be buying the buildable figures.

Overall I think that this is a very good wave, with good builds and minifigures.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Naboo set is disappointing. They should have made it 3 times the size to give it more playability.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

The Y-wing looks impressive, and so do the Phantom. I might pick them up, alongside with the battlepacks.

Gravatar
By in United States,

No Desert Skiff or Vader Transformation?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Really dissapointing set of kits. It looks to me like Lego are starting to churn out half arsed kits with no real thoughts on design. A couple of re-hashed kits and a bunch of mini kits that are cute but not worthy of adding to a Star Wars collection that includes items like the Ewok Village, Death Star, Shutle Tydirium etc. The only item I can see myself getting is the Thrawn figure which I'll probably pick up on eBay. Such a shame.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I feel that the Yoda's Starfighter is a lovely surprise!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Note that the Microfighter Y Wing is almost identical to the one in the Build Your Own Adventure book.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I Like the new Phantom!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Putting that Y-Wing on my wishlist!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really want the Y-Wing, the Thrawn set, and the Stormtrooper/Death Trooper battle pack. Most of everything else is good, but not a must-have...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am definitely getting: Y-Wing, Scarift Battle and the two RO BP. Really considering the new Phantom.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is it just me, or does Chirrut Imwe look more human than past human buildable figures? Also, that Y-wing looks fantastic.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Are the force awakens sets going to be later releases?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Looking closer, Chirrut looks a lot like Vinnie Jones, while Baze looks like a Klingon...

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

Disappointed to see stud shooters included in battle packs again. But I'm also delighted to see a new Y-wing, even though it's not part of the original trilogy.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Loving the sets, but would it kill them to make ONE other rebel pilot with visor head print? My star corps isn't made up of strangely happy clones, ya know.

Gravatar
By in Japan,

So the Microfighters U-Wing pilot gets the new cool helmet but the large U-Wing set gets a printed face visor instead? What happened there?

Still a few of these look very very tempting! 2017 is going to be another year of wallet pain.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love them all!!! Maybe not all first day buys, but I'll get them all eventually. Where's the landspeeder and desert skiff? Watermarked images were leaked, so we know they're not just false rumors.

Gravatar
By in Jordan,

I love the Y-wing and the battle packs! I'd like to get a better look at Thrawn before I say anything about him though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Only the death troopers and naboo scene interest me, but even the naboo scene...it looks like, idk, like it could have been better? But I'm not sure how.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I really dig the Rogue One sets. Too "bad" I chose The Force Awakens as the movie I want to collect every set from. I can't have 2 collections :)

Anyone has an idea when the two new TFA sets will be revealed?

Gravatar
By in United States,

75161?

Gravatar
By in Kuwait,

Duel on Naboo is the only pass for me. Excited to see the new Kanan, Phantom and Thrawn all come in such an inexpensive and good looking set. I really thought they were going to put Kanan and/or Thrawn in some dumb <$90 set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I want all of these except the Phantom.

Gravatar
By in United States,

There's an amazing Rebel Astromech in the Y-Wing!!! I'm definitely getting it just for that.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow! So many great looking sets! Definitely getting The Phantom, what a great little set and so awesome to get Thrawn and new blind-as-a-bat Kannon. Really liking the Battle on Scarif but haven't gotten any Rogue One sets so probably will steer clear, once you get one it opens the floodgates. Also like Yoda's ship and the Darth Maul battle, will probably have to get that one. Y-Wing looks rad. Imperial Battle pack is gonna sell like hotcakes for sure also.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Y wing thrawn set and imperial battle pack for me

But am i the only one hyping the minecraft set pictures, even if they make the horrible mistake of making story mode sets? I know they will come out in the spring, but we have elves picture which is also has a spring release.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Was hoping that Yoda's starfighter came with a red robed darth sidious like he was in the final season of the clone wars. Would have made perfect sense in this set. Oh well, still glad to see a clone wars set in general. Don't really want to get any rogue one sets but that y-wing looks nice. They even got the cockpit window printing correct this time around.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Bought the mad scientist CMF a long time ago, just so I had the right legs for Thrawn - can't wait!

Gravatar
By in United States,

YAY More buildable figures. They look awful but yay more parts we ConstrAction builders didn't have before, so I'm happy. :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

I Want Them All

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm glad there's no large sets in this wave, my bank account is broken after buying several Lester minifigs on eBay

Gravatar
By in United States,

Have to wait for prices, but this seems to be a quality wave, aside from the walker in the imperial battle pack that looks like a micro fighter. Only the y wing should be above $40 if they price these right.

Gravatar
By in United States,

75165 made me jump out of my seat in excitement! I think I'm gonna get at least 5 of those :P The Y-wing also looks pretty cool.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I've been waiting for SO LONG for a duel on Naboo set

Gravatar
By in United States,

THRAWN!!!!! YES! He looks perfect!

The only thing that concerns me is I can't tell if his eyes are red or not.

They NEED to be red.

Please, Lego, don't mess this up. Don't mess up the one signature thing of this character. Everything else looks perfect, but PLEASE don't mess this up.

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

What is that clear dome piece at the bottom of the Duel on Naboo set?

Gravatar
By in United States,

THESE ARE AWESOME!! The buildable figures on the other hand...awful. I personally LOVE the duel on naboo, Darth Maul in a $25-30 set? YES PLEASE! That thrawn minifig is probably an error btw.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@TheBombadWeldo I hope you're right...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thrawn Set... err I mean The Phantom is a day one purchase for me!

Gravatar
By in Russian Federation,

it's a pity that LEGO hasn't released new version of the Rebel scout trooper from 7668.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@swedishbrick, I know, right? I'll take a Droideka, Super Battle Droid, Darth Maul, OT Stormtrooper, the Emperor, oh, and... BOBA FETT!!! Really, they picked Jango over the marginally cooler-looking Boba?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Definitely buying Yoda's star-fighter. I'll probably skip the rest (although I'd like the proper Maul minifig. I never picked up one of those).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

A one sentence opinion on each of the sets (bar the microfighters and CCBS):

Rebel BP - Great variety of minifigs, printed legs and the new helmet, plus 2 proper structures which is rare for a BP - even a static turret!
Empire BP - Seemingly some sort of AT-RT walker, looks like filler although there are a couple of useful pieces, but even more useful are actual army-building minifigs.
Yoda's SF - I saw all the Clone Wars episodes and this never stuck in my mind, plus no new minifigures means an unlikely purchase - looks nice though.
Duel on Naboo - Minifigures may be new variants, but I'd be really intrigued to know exactly how the play features work because that is the big focus.
New Phantom - I liked the old Phantom but this design is even better and stickery than I could have imagined - there's even a Kanan visor.
Scarif - One of the better looking playsets, much better executed than Takodana and I didn't think a grey bunker entrance could look so interesting and vegetated.
Y-Wing - May have been rehashed many times before but not as effectively as this, and in a new film - should be an instant purchase!

After a couple of mediocre years, it's finally a January wave you can be excited about if you're a Star Wars fan. As it's going to be Star Wars' 40th Anniversary next year, who knows what else is in store?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Beautiful must have sets, for the most part. I'm not a fan of the buildable figures and probably won't pick up the Duel on Naboo set unless it's a really good deal. So happy to finally get a Thrawn Minifigure! I wonder if the new Phantom docks onto the Ghost? Now I'm really hoping one of the new Rebels sets will be a YT-2400 (just like Dash Rendar's Outrider) since there was one in tonight's Rebels episode! Please Lego!! Otherwise I'll have to continue with my own MOC, and although a lifelong builder I'm sadly no Master Builder.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Will have to see how the 2 (!!) Y-wings compare to 9495 Gold Leader's Y-wing & mini Build Your Own Adventure Y-wing.

Ghost II would have been a Day 1 Buy if I *just* didn't buy 2017 SW Annual for Ezra & Chopper minifigs....

Gravatar
By in United States,

Y-Wing is one of my favorite ships, going back to the Kenner toy from the Original Trilogy era. 9495 was one of the first ships I acquired after coming back to LEGO (along with 9492 and 9493). I'm pleased to see the improved detailing in the "T" section of the new model; it really looks like it's been in active service for a while! The old model had 458 pieces, 4 minifigs, and cost $50. I hope this new one with 5 minifigs is around 600 pieces and costs $70.

I'll be getting these Microfighters and Battle Packs, for sure. I set them up on my desk at work!

The Battle on Scarif set seems a lot like the Takodana set, as I'm sure others have said. $50 would be a reasonable for about 400-430 pieces (my guess), however the two recent playsets of simiar size were $60.

Yoda's Starfighter is a pass; I just don't like the Prequel Trilogy Starfighters and Interceptors. Duel on Naboo is akin to the Carbon Freeze Chamber. I'll probably get it, as it is one of the few Phantom Menace sets that are appealing (edit: have any appeal at all). Obi Wan's hair is truly horrible! The Phantom 2 has Thrawn; I'll be looking on BrickLink for that minifigure if it's well-done, or for a deep discount. All three of these are probably the $25 price point.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yay, Death Troopers in a cheap set. :D Also everything about the Phantom looks awesome.
Yoda's fighter is weird. Looks chibi almost.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I must admit that, now I've seen the sets, I'm not impressed. The only one I might go for is Yoda's starfighter. Still, at least it'll save me some money.

Gravatar
By in Switzerland,

Utter disappointment. I don't really watch the animated shows, so everything from there is in the "meh" category for me, the Naboo duel would've interested me, but the final model is not appealing at all. The Y-wing is not too bad, but far from an instant get, and I don't quite get this minifig selection there, why pack one stormtrooper there with all the other rebels?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Favorite Sets: Yoda's Interceptor, Battle on Scarif, Rebel Trooper Battle Pack
Favorite Minifigs: Admiral Raddus, Shoretrooper, Death Trooper, Updated Kanan, THRAWN!

FYI: Raddus looks like Ackbar, Moroff is a Gigoran Fighter, Thrawn is awesome (so is the new Kanan), and ROGUE ONE COMES OUT IN LESS THAN A MONTH!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Any thoughts on if the new Phantom will dock with the old Ghost?
Would like to see some room in Phantom as well for a passenger

Gravatar
By in United States,

That Thrawn set is a NEED. So, so good!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Rebel Trooper Battle pack looks great, especially if you combine it with the Battle on Scariff. The y-wing looks good too. The Imperial battle pack and Battle on Naboo look the worst. The phantom looks too round in my opinion but thrawn is great
