Lego 2008

(1/15) > >>

I used to be a Seasonal Lego Merchandiser and i've remained in contact with the Full Timer that is in the area I used to work in... Aparently there is a survery of sorts that Lego is doing now that involves folks getting a look at and giving their opinion for some of packaging for the upcomming products for 2008. They've sent packages of boxes to the Merch's in many major cities. Some of the test boxes they've sent are for some of the new Star Wars products.

There is a Anakins Jedi Starfighter with a Clone Wars Logo.
A Stormtrooper Dropship with a Force Unleashed Logo
and A At-PT "Pod Walker" with Clone Wars Logo

also there are some other lines that are getting some interesting new looks and a new License that I for one am extremely excited about seeing in Lego form.... 


And now after seeing the packaging in person I can reveal a bit more:
The AT-PT comes with 2 clones and looks very very good

The Stormtrooper dropship is not affiliated with any particular event however it does have a large logo that does say "build your armies" and comes with 2 Stormies and a Tie Pilot

The Anakin Starship from Clone wars is Grey and Yellow (very Similar to Saesee's Starfighter)

The Set from the Force Unleashed is The Rogue Shadow (I believe) it is Vader's Apprentices ship apperantly and comes with Vader's Apprentice, A very hacked up Vader and the Female Imperial Officer (who's name escapes me right now)

Sorry I can't give picks but all this is very very hush hush and I'm sure I'm breaking some confidetiality things by telling this much! But 2008 is gonna be a great year for legos!!!

  Just a note for anyone who might have missed it. Lego has the Lic. for the new Indiana Jones movie! I can't imagine how much money I will need to save for these sets. What if they go back and release sets from each of the 3 previous films also. A Sean Connery mini-figure! The possibilities are endless.

Actually in the batch of Lego boxes that are part of the Survey are 4 of the Indiana Jones sets. and actually NONE of them are for the new movie. 3 of them are from Raiders of the Lost arc. A large set depicting the temple with the Golden Monkey head that comes Jock and a Biplane.  The Second is the Map Room which they call the "Snake pit", third is the Treasure Pursuit (Indy pusuing the Truck w/ the Arc), and the 4th set is from Last Crusade. it's called Motercycle Pursuit and it's Indy and his father (yes a Sean Connery Mini-fig) plus 2 Nazi Motercycles. I can only hope we see a good couple Temple of Doom sets with a lego Short Round

   Thanks a lot for the update! I'm glad to see Lego hasn't given up on the Franchise stuff. I know it's not their core type stuff but I really enjoy the specific sets...SpongeBob, Batman, Star Wars. Wish they had gotten TMNT

yeah nice to see them expanding. glad to see everybody didn't go in with Mega Blocks when they were buying up licenses left and right.

Also this gives hope of a Lego Indiana jones game!

woo hoo!
