    Are we sure that the 8098 Clone Turbo Tank will contain a Tactical Droid? In the picture I can see all the figures mentioned except for that one. I do know the preliminary box art did feature a Tactical Droid on the minifig roll call on the side of the box, but this official hi-res picture has left me wondering…

    I’m not familiar with the source material for Plo Koon’s starfighter, but I do think the blue and white rays motif is very snazzy. The slave one looks fabulous. The Palpatine Shuttle and the Turbo Tank are huge piles of meh.

  3. Dr. X

    Awesome sets, and surprisingly decent prices too. The new wheels on the Juggernaut are much more accurate.

    I don’t like Boba’s new helmet. It’s too big.

  4. Catsy

    The new Turbo Tank is just terrible. The rest aren’t bad, lots of playability in the Wampa set, and the Grievous Starfighter looks like a parts bonanza (five!! lightsaber hilts!).

    Not sure we needed yet another Slave I. But the dark green parts are interesting.

  5. Daedalus

    It’s too hard for me to tell, but is the carbonite Han a 3D mold? If it is, that’s pretty sweet; if not, it’s a pretty good looking sticker. Either way, I’m liking it.

    The turbo tank has some sort of technic beam coming out of the middle of it. Perhaps so it can be carried by the (expensive!) 10195 dropship?

    $80 for Slave I is insane. Last model had 40 fewer pieces (though more figs) and cost $30 less. If you go on price/parts ratio that’s exactly a 50% price increase. I don’t think i’ve seen higher. It’s a smart move though, as I really do want that set, almost enough to pay such a price.

    GG starfighter is awesome in terms of set AND parts AND price. Way to go Lego.

    Yeah the prices are nuts. This is why LEGO Star Wars has to end soon, the first Slave 1 was $20 and by the time it ends it will be $120.

    I really don’t like the new Boba, and I also think that the LEGO Star Wars license needs to end, so LEGO can make way for something better, like LEGO Ninjas.

    Im getting Grievous Starfighter for sure, the Slave 1 and the Wampa Attack!

    The light blue color for Plo’s starfighter makes it look cheap.

    I believe the Star Wars license has been a great influence in Lego’s new tecnology development, pieces evolution and complexity.

    Lego Star Wars brought me out of my dark ages back in 1999 and it’s still the theme I collect most sets of, so I’m slightly biased towards this theme. I’ll probably get most of these sets too. Still, I probably wouldn’t shed a tear if the license ends in the near future: it’s been good to Lego and helped them through a rough patch, but right now we’ve really seen all there ever could be made… at least twice.

    @Daedalus: The Han Solo carbonite brick is a one piece mold, with additional molding on the inside/underside to accomodate the Han Solo minifig (the hands can clip on two “handlebars”). It’s a big prefab piece, but it’s clever…

  12. Jai

    Hm. So if Boba has a new helmet and new cape… should we assume he has a new jetpack? A separate piece, maybe? Hmm! That Slave I is very nice, but it appears to be almost exactly the same model as the previous version. With some stickers/printing and flick-fire missiles. The new minifig stuff is all very cool, though.

    And I want to see that Wampa’s face.

    i dont want the star wars license to go out, isnt it the longest running theme out of all of lego? shouldnt that count for something? anyways i think that palpatines shuttle looks really cool, the turbo tank would be nice if it didnt look cheap on the bottom, came with at least 2-3 more clones and more accessories
