As you probably know already the LEGO Star Wars summer sets are now out and available at the Online LEGO Shop. Below are (at least to me) some of the most exciting ones. You can share in the comment section below which ones do you like the most.
#9516 LEGO STAR WARS JABBA’S PALACE: by far this is my favorite LEGO Star Wars sets that came out recently; nicely done structure, nine amazing and unique minifigs (I have been waiting for Boushh all my life!) and lots of play-features. I would say if you get one LEGO Star Wars set this summer, get this one. The price is 119.99. Check out the details, see more pictures and buy HERE
#9526 LEGO STAR WARS PALPATINE’S ARREST: this is another nice LEGO Star Wars play-set with a structure, a small ship and 6 minifigures. I don’t like it as much as Jabba’s Palace, but if you are into getting a bunch of Jedis this is a good set to consider. The price is $89.99. Check out the details, see more pictures and buy HERE
#9500 LEGO STAR WARS SITH FURY-CLASS INTERCEPTOR: This ship is a beast, if I might say so. Gorgeously evil and elegant looking at the same time. And the minifigures are awesome. The price is $89.99. Check out the details, see more pictures and buy HERE
#9525 LEGO STAR WARS PRE VIZSLA’S MANDALORIAN FIGHTER: I doubt this set is going to be a classis like the X-wing, but nonetheless it is a nice ship. It is not too big, not to small, and swooshable. Comes with 3 minifigs – including 2 Mandalorians (and who doesn’t want more Mandalorians?). And it is only $49.99. Check out the details, see more pictures and buy HERE
#10225 LEGO STAR WARS ULTIMATE COLLECTOR R2-D2: If you are into big and more complex sets, consider this R2-D2 model. We have reviewed it previously, so I won’t go into details, but it is a great set for Star Wars fans who like a good challenge (and their own cute droid). The price is $179.99. Check out the details, see more pictures and buy HERE
#10227 LEGO STAR WARS B-WING STARFIGHTER: Talking about big sets, just a reminder that the collector series B-wing is coming out this October. We talked about this set in detail before. Price is going to be $199.99. Check out the details, see more pictures and buy HERE
LEGO STAR WARS PLANETS & BATTLE PACKS: If you are into smaller sets, you will probably like the LEGO Star Wars Planets series and the ever-popular battle packs.
There are more recently released LEGO STAR WARS sets I haven’t mentioned, like the #9497 LEGO Star Wars Republic Striker-Class Starfighter, the #9515 LEGO Star Wars Malevolence, or the #9499 LEGO Star Wars Gungan Sub. You can check out the details, see pictures and buy at the Online LEGO Shop. In summary; there is quite a bit of a selection to satisfy the needs of any LEGO Star Wars fan this summer!
Now lets get to the rumors about the 2013 LEGO Star Wars sets. According to the website Jedi News these are the sets expected next January:
LEGO Star Wars Planets set for 2013 – Series Three:
- Kamino with Astromech Droid and Jedi Starfighter
- Coruscant with Clone Pilot and Republic Assault Striker
- Asteroid with TIE Bomber and TIE Pilot
LEGO Star Wars regular sets for 2013:
The Old Republic Battle Pack
Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas Battle Pack
A-Wing including Admiral Ackbar, Han Solo and an A-Wing Pilot
AT-RT including Yoda, Clone Trooper and Assassin Droid
Z-95 Headhunter including three Clone Troopers
The Rancor Pit (to go with Jabba’s Palace)
Again; remember that these are rumors at this point so take them with a grain of salt, although Jedi News has been pretty accurate in the past. Hopefully we will be seeing some pictures soon.
