I'm kind of underwhelmed at this list, especially given how interesting this year's crop of SW stuff was.  Maybe they're holding back the really neat stuff for the mid-year release in 2012.  There doesn't seem to be any truly new ship/vehicle among this list (with maybe Anakin's green JSF being the exception), and that Geonosian Cannon looks like it might be the "isn't this way overpriced for the number of parts?" culprit of the wave.

I have to say, though, that depending on execution, the mini-vehicle/minifigure/mini-planet idea could be a really good way to get more cost-prohibitive minifigures into more people's hands.  I'm figuring the "new" TIE Fighter will be at least 50 bucks, and with Sebulba currently only available in a 90 dollar set and the Naboo Pilot only currently available in a "special edition" exclusive set for 50 bucks, this does seem like a good idea, if only for the economics of it.

I am curious as to where the Queen Amidala minifigure shown at SDCC is going to show up, since she's not included in any of the sets on this list.

The game and "Build A Galaxy" sets intrigue me...  I like the mini ships a lot, and mini figures, so that is a really appealing thing.  Kind of thing I could get into wholesale, and not feel too immersed in Lego (just don't have teh space/$ to get into it neck deep, but always want mini figs and mini ships).

I could not be more "in" on those mini fig w/planet/mini-ship sets.  I'm buying those.

I also could not be more "in" on the Hoth game.  Games like that, I'm buying.  I want a Death Star one NOW.

I know, I'm at the same point...  I'm ONLY going for small sets that are intended to army build, or those mini ships/mini fig sets.  Nothing more.  Nothing higher in price.

I agree. I like those mini figures with planet. I'll have to get my little duplo manic into regular legos now.

See I might go with OT only. The last set I bought was Jabba's Sail Barge back in 06 and they've made a lot of improvements since then, especially on the Minifigs. If only we could get say the Bounty Hunters and other main characters in those figure/planet sets, I'd be a happy camper.

I love the look of the tie fighter! Much better than the blue and black version that I have.

Don't have links to the photos (as they tend to disappear quickly after I look at them), but it looks like there will be three more "mini-planet" sets: 

-Bespin with Cloud Car and Lobot
-Endor with AT-ST Driver and AT-ST
-Some Planet with either an X-Wing or ARC-170 (can't tell from the photo)

Oh, and the Anakin's Jedi Interceptor set also includes platforms for the duel on Mustafar! :)
