The Mace Windu fighter is priced in Euros.  40 Euros (at today's rates) is more like $30 US.

Not a terribly exciting list really...  I like the Jedi Starfighters, but after that I suppose I could see myself picking up the Battlepacks...   :-\

Ya I'm not interested in anything here except for the overpriced Jedi Shuttle....Will land that on a sale and call it a day on the early 2011 stuff.  I refuse to go jedi skittles with LEGO starfighters even though I have one.  Sticking to my rule I guess.

Not Star Wars, but my oldest absolutely loves the Atlantis ones, so I'm looking forward to those continuing (the anglerfish and crab warriors look great).

Saw all of these at Target this morning. Nice but not really my thing.

Quite a few more sets out there for the later half of 2011, but I'm too lazy to go dig up pics.....Might break my rule and buy the new Falcon.

Is there an ICMG-LEGO petition?

7957 Dathomir Speeder


I would dearly love to see a photo of this one if anyone can find one...I have searched to no avail on Google.

This is practically a slam dunk for the TCW 3.75" line...

Does this work?  I poked around Brickshelf a bit to find it.  Not really a good picture, but its a start...   :-\


That Republic Frigate looks pretty nice.  Maybe if I'm really good this year Santa will bring it for me.

Has there been any more info on some of these sets?  I actually had some gift card to burn at WM due to some Christmas returns, so I picked up the Landspeeder set, and I'm dangerously close to being hooked on these.  I might continue to pick up an OT set here and there when I can afford it, but honestly, the holy grail for me would be a Falcon set.  If that is indeed coming this year, I better start saving now :).

I have to say, this Landspeeder set was the first "true" LEGO set I have bought (aside from the MIDI scale Falcon at WM last year), and I really enjoyed it.  Nothing too difficult of course, but it was a fun little project for our daughter (who put together the "people") and I.  Wouldn't mind getting a few more sets, but I can see how they would get addicting.

You can see most of them but the quality isn't the best, you'll probably have to wait for EuroToyFair

Brian - tread lightly.....Seriously.  I've avoided LEGO ANYTHING since I got back into collecting SW Hasbro stuff in 01.  Didn't get hooked on LEGO until a few years ago when I found (I think I've said this before) a UCS Batmobile on clearance for $17ish.  I've picked up 70+ sets since then and there is indeed a new Falcon coming this year, but I'm going to stick to my rule of only 1. 

Very expensive habit, but at least you can make a few bucks if not more down the road (I'm not in this hobby to make money, but this is where you should be unless you're into stocks for toys)

I think Lego's a different egg over Hasbro stuff iFett, so mentioning making a buck down the road isn't a horrible thing.  Lego's are widely available, usually good sales...  People have ample chanes at getting them usually, and it just happens to be one hobby that holds its value and then some.

I've even contemplated selling my SW Lego collection for a profit.  I have like 5 B-Wings, 5 A-Wings, 3 Y-Wing/Vader TIE sets, 5 TIE Fighters...  I quit collecting after the TIE Fighter came out at some point, but I still pick up a mini-fig set now and then just to get like the Hoth rebel or whatnot.

Love Legos, hate the price, wish I could afford to have a full set around of them though. :)
