New LEGO Star Wars set: Palpatine’s Arrest

LEGO forums and blogs have been abuzz with the news of a new LEGO Star Wars set that somehow haven’t leaked before. It is the #9526 LEGO Star Wars Palpatine’s Arrest. Please take a look! ๐Ÿ˜›

Here is the front of the LEGO Star Wars Palpatine’s Arrest box (click image for larger view). As you can see the set is nicely detailed with a lot of play-features and aย great assortment of LEGO Star Wars minifigs.

It is actually quite rare to find a LEGO Star Wars set that is not focused on space-ships and star-fights, but instead shows interiors of buildings. I can only think of the highly coveted #10123 LEGO Star Wars Cloud City released in 2003, the #8038 LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor (another wonderful set), the new #9516 LEGO Star Wars Jabba’s Palace, and this one.

Here is the back of the box showing some of the details and play-features. (Click on any of the images for larger view.)

And hereย are the six minifigures included: Kit Fisto, Mace Windu, Chancellor Palpatine, Saesee Tiin, Anakin Skywalker, and Agen Kolar.

According to LEGO-fan site Imperium der Steine, the LEGO Star Wars Palpatine’s Arrest is already available for sale in Germany at the Hamburg LEGO Brand Store forย โ‚ฌ89.99. I guess this time the USA is not first! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So what do you think? How do you like the LEGO Star Wars Palpatine’s Arrest set? Isย it something going on your wanted list, or are you planning to pass? You are welcome to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This one’s definitely on my want list, but there’s no way I’m going to get it at the price it looks like it’ll be going for (a 90 euro set is matches across to about a $70-80 set). And while the majority of these minifigs is labelled as “New” they’re really mostly variants on Clone Wars minifigs. The set is more substantial than I anticipated though, and I’m glad they included the Jedi ship that Anakin uses; it’s a nice extra.

  • admin May 31, 2012, 11:08 AM

    YTjedi, yes, I was also pleasantly surprised about the ship. I guess LEGO wanted to increase the play-features with providing a way to come and go for the Jedi. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Personally I really like the Star Wars sets that come with a building. They really set the scene for a particular set-up or planet, and it is easy to expand on it to make a bigger layout.

  • nace10 May 31, 2012, 11:39 AM

    Nice, but a little small.

  • YTjedi May 31, 2012, 11:53 AM

    I’m a little bit of the opposite. I’m usually into the vehicles more than the scenes. This may be because of the playability for me personally. I don’t have much time these days to “play” like I used to, so usually it’s just a quick grabbing of a couple figs and some swooshing around the room with a ship.

    Thus, I almost never break down ships after I build them but most of the scene pieces get broken down and become my MOC piece supply, which I use to make modifications to my ships (like adding parts to the newest Sith Infiltrator and the Tantive IV so the hatches don’t open when the ship is tilted back or upside down).

  • admin May 31, 2012, 11:59 AM

    And right there you just summed up the beauty of LEGO; it can fulfill the building / playing / creative-craving of just about anyone with any style. BTW, I also like to swoosh around ships; I like the smallish ones – they are faster and make better swooshing noises. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • $90!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ก ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

  • AGEN KOLAR!!!!!!!!!!!

  • YTjedi May 31, 2012, 12:10 PM

    And the smaller ones are more maneuverable. The Imperial Star Destroyer set: very hard to swoosh. Have to move slowly and use both hands on that one.

  • THOSE ARE LIKE SUPER RARE JEDI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • admin May 31, 2012, 12:36 PM

    LOL! I won’t even call that swooshing! ๐Ÿ˜†

  • The Ultimate Spinjitzu master May 31, 2012, 1:19 PM

    AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is soooo epic!!!!!!!!!!!!
    But it’s really expensive! Kinda pricey for me.

  • nace10 May 31, 2012, 2:59 PM

    Sorry!!! I hooked up a website, but it was the rong one!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  • thats 1 of the cool”set” iv seen

  • Tobymacboy June 1, 2012, 7:33 AM

    Looks like for the list of minifigs u accidently put anakin skywalker twice. (above the pic that has the minfigures side-by-side)

  • admin June 1, 2012, 8:29 AM

    Thanks for noticing that! Just fixed it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Gabriel June 1, 2012, 9:55 AM

    I’ve been dying to see pictures since I heard about this set. I was in my Dark Ages during the release of the Episode II and Episode III sets first time around, so I’m very excited about this one. The Clone Wars Jedi have all been so tempting, but I am glad I held out for ones that don’t have silly eyeballs ๐Ÿ™‚

  • admin June 1, 2012, 10:08 AM

    Gabriel, yeah, there have been rumors about this set for a long time. So long in fact that a lot of people thought it was a myth! ๐Ÿ™„
    Turned out pretty nice though! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Tydroid Ninja of NINJAGONESS June 1, 2012, 2:03 PM

    A good way to get lots of jedi! ๐Ÿ˜› Perfect! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • admin June 1, 2012, 5:22 PM

    Yeah, a set full of Jedi! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Thebrickingdomboy June 2, 2012, 8:32 PM

    Looks nice but I have some issues with the set.
    1: $80.00 I was thinking it was worth around 40 or 50!
    2: There so called “New” figures are just a old one with a cape or a new variant. The only figs I want is Agen Kolar,Kit fisto only because I dont have one.
    3. Why is palpatines light saber hilt gold?!? If you watch the movie or look up palaptines lightsaber its silver. Never has been gold.
    So its cool but dont think im getting it other than third party agen kolar ebay amazon etc.

  • admin June 5, 2012, 8:52 AM

    Hm… I would say it depends what you are into; if you like ships, vehicles and wooshy things, this would likely not be the best set for you. But if you like interior scenerios and buildings you can use to play inside or set up even bigger scenes, it is an excellent one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • admin June 5, 2012, 8:54 AM

    No need to apologize. All is well. May the Force be with you! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • lego old republic June 5, 2012, 4:34 PM
