FBTB posted the following USD prices, which line up more with what we are used to seeing here in America:

75099 Rey’s Speeder, 193 pieces, $19.99
75100 First Order Snowspeeder, 444 pieces, $39.99
75101 First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter, 517 pieces, $69.99
75102 Poe’s X-wing Starfighter, 717 pieces, $79.99
75103 First Order Transporter, 792 pieces, $89.99
75104 Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle, 1004 pieces, $119.99
75105 Millennium Falcon, 1332 pieces, $149.99

The prices all appear to be "the usual" (ie closer to the 10-12 cent price per piece ratio) but it seems we're getting a small price hike too.

Are these the five sets that just got released, or are there more?

75016 - Imperial Assault Carrier
75094 - Imperial Shuttle Tydirium
75093 - Death Star Final Duel
75092 - Naboo Starfighter
75091 - Flash Speeder

Also, has anyone seen reviews of these?  The last four have already been done before and I'm curious if anyone thinks they're interesting enough to rebuy.

Okay, that's a bit more in line with what I was expecting and/or am used to, price-wise.  I'm hoping that the minifigure selection is good/varied, and there isn't an Iron Man Syndrome with these sets.  At the very least, we won't have to worry about Rey only being in the most expensive set.

75016 - Imperial Assault Carrier
75094 - Imperial Shuttle Tydirium
75093 - Death Star Final Duel

That's all that's out right now, but I know there's a new Sith Infiltrator (with Maul, Qui-Gon, Anakin, and Watto minifigures) on the way as well.  Not sure of piece count or cost as yet, but I'm guessing it will be a retailer and Lego Shop exclusive.  I haven't seen any reviews yet, but judging by the boxes at TRU (which has already added their $5.00 TRU tax to the prices), the Naboo Fighter looks nearly identical to the 2011 version.

I saw all of those sets except for the Death Star Final Duel set today.  I really liked the look of the Imperial Assault Carrier, too.  LEGO just has this cool way of going places where Hasbro is just unable to, because I doubt they're ever going to touch upon a vehicle like the Imperial Assault Carrier from REBELS.

Picked up the Imperial Assault Carrier, but won't put it together until this weekend with the kids.

I agree, it looks really cool and is something that Hasbro isn't likely to ever get near.  It'll work great next to The Ghost, another ship Hasbro probably won't ever touch.

Well the minifigs are awesome, but the models themselves leave a lot to be desired. Not digging the X-Wing, probably because of the colors. The Falcon looks exactly the same as the 2011 version but with crappier mandibles.

Pics removed but they're making the rounds elsewhere.

Digging the alien crewman for the X-Wing, and in general the Resistance Pilot looks.  Similar but updated.  I like it.  I appreciate Abrams' team generally knowing how to make things look the same, but evolved.  Lucas seemed incapable of that with the PT somehow and it bugged me.

Check out the front page for a good link to them.  :D

Imgur Rehost of the Leaked Pics, just in case Gizmodo's link goes down

Saw some funny comments in the Reddit LEGO section thread about these pics. People saying they're glad Disney/Hasbro/LEGO aren't allowed to show anything off because "it'll all be a surprise." Guess these people just fall ass backwards into money?

The First Order landing craft on twitter was interesting.  A space Higgins boat.  Again I say the FO sure doesn't care about its soldiers any more than the old Empire did haha.
