Are you impatiently and curiously waiting to see what 2012 will bring in the world of LEGO? In this series of posts I give you a glimpse of some of the upcoming 2012 LEGO sets.
You might first want to check out 2012 LEGO Sets – See What’s Coming! That post will give you an overall picture of the 2012 LEGO sets. From there you can link to the particular themes you are interested in.
In this post I will list all of the 2012 LEGO STAR WARS sets revealed so far. Some of the 2012 LEGO STAR WARS sets are re-releases of iconic sets that have been available in previous years. If you didn’t have a chance to pick them up then, here is your chance. You may also want to check out the current LEGO STAR WARS selection here: LEGO STAR WARS
I have found that re-releases often have improved, more realistic designs due to the expansion of LEGO elements and the possibilities with them. Also, the STAR WARS minifigs coming out recently have been truly awesome and it seems the trend will continue in 2012! Most minifigs now have both front and back printing, as well as dual-sided heads with different expressions.
So let’s look at what 2012 will bring to LEGO STAR WARS fans! To get an idea on pricing you may go to Barnes & Noble Pre-Order Sale. Also, you can click on any of the pictures for a larger view.
#9488 LEGO STAR WARS Elite Clone Trooper & Commander Droid Battle Pack – one nice change LEGO is introducing in 2012 is that each STAR WARS battle pack will include both good-guys and bad-guys. So you can build at least a small battle-scene with just buying one battle pack.
#9489 LEGO STAR WARS Endor Rebel Trooper & Imperial Trooper Battle Pack – I’m particularly happy about the rebel troopers as they have been only available in one expensive set, the #8038 LEGO STAR WARS Battle of Endor.
#9490 LEGO STAR WARS Droid Escape – small set with an iconic scene! Note the new torso print on C-3PO!
#9491 LEGO STAR WARS Geonosian Cannon – more wingy Geonosians are always welcome!
#9492 LEGO STAR WARS TIE Fighter – a highly anticipated re-design of the earlier #7263 LEGO STAR WARS TIE Fighter. It does not disappoint!
#9493 LEGO STAR WARS X-wing Starfighter – the 5th reincarnation (if my memory serves me right) of this perennial favorite.
#9494 LEGO STAR WARS Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor – I really like this one! Nice minifigs too!
#9495 LEGO STAR WARS Gold Leader’s Y-wing Starfighter – the 5th reincarnation of this sweet fighter!
And if this is not awesome enough for you, please not that there are in fact more sets scheduled for 2012. There are the LEGO STAR WARS Planets sets (see here: LEGO STAR WARS Planets), and also Queen Amidala has been scheduled to appear next year in a set not yet revealed. 😉
So what do you think so far of the upcoming 2012 LEGO STAR WARS sets? Share your thoughts in the comment section below! Also, if you are aware of any new images please share the link! 🙂
Love all the new minifgs! Especially the black battle droids and the more realistic astro-droids, and that Padme’ Amidaala minifig look a lot like in the movie.
The battle packs are great! Especially the first one! And the Tie fighter! The rest are kind of meh, Just rereleases. But Amidala is amazing, I wish Lego would make her silver royal starship! But that would be hard! It would have to be all chrome! 😀
Battlepacks = wanted! TIE fighter = wanted! But my favorite set is this years podracers! IMHO it is one of the best lego sets ever!
Agree! I really like that set too! 😀
I love the c3p0 and r2d2 minifigures in 9491. I can’t wait to get my hands on these sets. The Queen Amidala minifigure looks awesome too.

comment: star wars is the best ever also lego starwas.
This is really cool I can’t WAIT! 😀
Wow , I love these! I like your site also , I’m thinking of making one called “5000 Bricks”. Thats about how many I have (not including minifigures.). What do you think of lego pens?

I have already got the X-wing!!
xwingman- how did you get it?
Would you know how much the lego starwars set #9494 (anakin, obiwan, nute gunray, etc) would be. Please write back…
In stores or online,
According to the new Lego catalog ‘Anikan’s Jedi Intercepter’ is $39.99
Thanks but I read somewhere else it was $24.99 but either way I will still definatly get it!
When will these legos be in stores?
i think next summer
These are already on Lego.com . it says they will ship Jan 30th.
Yes, that is correct. They are available for pre-order and will ship on the 30th. You will also get an awesome LEGO Star Wars poster if you order now. I should write a post about this…
i really love the x-wing
Zeta, yes, the X-wing is a very iconic Star Wars ship, and this LEGO version looks excellent! 🙂

Is the Lego Set 9494 (anakin’s jedi interceptor) going to be at Wal-mart ortarget or can someone please tell me where I will be able to buy these sets because I was at wal-mart and I didn’t see the sticker but I saw all the other sets stickers… Please Tell Me!
Ryan, please note that the Interceptor is a very new set. Even on LEGO’s website it is only avialable for pre-order, and won’t ship until the end of the month. You can pre-order it from LEGO, or just wait until department stores start to carry them. I think your best bet will be Toys’R’Us as other stores don’t carry a full line of LEGO sets. 😉
Awsome i will defenently be getting 4 or 5 of these sets I have a girt card for target
UPDATE: Picture and video of the 2012 LEGO Star Wars summer sets! Check them out here: LEGO STAR WARS 2012 Summer Sets. Enjoy! 😀
was waiting all of last year for that ARC trooper sooooooo awesome also can’t wait for the new jabba’s palace, malevalence, master pell and the old republic sets (omg darth malgus). I think best year for LEGO star wars yet.
Yes, Star Wars fans will have a great year! 😀
