Mid-year 2010 LEGO Star Wars sets now available [News]

The summer/winter (depending on where you live) 2010 LEGO Star Wars sets are now available from the LEGO Shop.

8128 Cad Bane’s Speedericon has five minifigs, including some dude with a really funky hat.


The big additions are the 8098 Clone Turbo Tankicon (again with the funky hat) and new 8129 AT-AT Walkericon

Personally, I’m most excited about 8089 Hoth Wampa Caveicon.


Shipping is free for orders over $75 through the end of July, and remember, the LEGO VIP Program now works for Web orders — two more reasons to support the LEGO fan sites you visit (even if it’s not this one) by buying your LEGO online.

    This is exaclty what I hate about all the new Star Wars sets they are coming out with. They are ALOT more expensive than the originals, like the AT-AT, Clone Turbo Tank, etc. And they look worse than the originals. So I just think it isn’t very smart to remove quality and raise prices on a Lego set already created, which WAS alot better than the new sets. Lego Company is running out of ideas. Before we know it Star Trek will be created, along with Gilligans Island, and other nonsense.

    Nuff’ said.

    I’m angry now…. I checked the lego site and saw that for example, the palpatine shuttle is 60$. In the Netherlands, it’s for sale for about 75 euros. For 1 euro is worth about 1.30 dollar, the prices difference are worse than ever before. We pay about (75X1.3) 98$ to get the same set.. that’s a 38 dollar difference!!!!

    Besides, I agree with ThereBpie, most of the sets look worse than the originals. The only set I’m running for is cad bane’s speeder, because it’s the first transport vehicle that TLG didn’t screw up.

    TLG, I’m very dissapointed, nothing else I can say.

    I wish I’m in Canada right now so I can get some Cad Bane’s Speeders for $40 while the pricing mistake is still active.

    This season might very well be the kicker that eliminates my desire for SW sets in the future. While new figures are nice, LEGO’s seemingly tunnel-visioned focus on them as the draw paired with ridiculous prices just isn’t making it worth it any more.

    I totally agree with you Morgan19. I used to buy a lot of Star Wars sets, but the number I buy has dramatically decreased in the last year or so because of the price, and the overall design of the sets. Especially for MOCing parts, I just can’t justify buying a set like the Turbo Tank for $120 when I could get a modular building with over a thousand more pieces for $30 more. The only one I might buy here is the Slave I.

    That At-AT is practically the same. Only difference is a lack of printed elements, a slightly more exaggerated profile and different guns. The only real difference is the lack of a speeder bike. The new AT-AT contains 250 fewer pieces and costs $10 more. What’s up with all these rehashes? I think after the fourth incarnation, it needs to be retired. Hell, after the second one we didn’t need a motorized one. We already had one.
