LEGO Star Wars news & rumors of 2013 sets

in LEGO Star Wars

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. 😎

So what do you think? Which one is your favorite LEGO Star Wars set released this summer? And which one are you looking forward to the most? Or are you disappointed with any of them? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

That sith fury class intercepter has a pretty sweet shape. 🙂 And the minifigs with it look pretty cool too.

Can’t wait for the rancor pit. I just don’t get why lego took so long to make it into a set. I’m also excited to see if the droidekas have a new design (if that set isn’t a myth)

Good question! But better later then never! 😉

I think it just recently became possible for Lego to start making larger scale “mini”-figs. The Hulk and LotR Cave Troll probably led to the possibility of a rancor.

Well, a couple days ago. It was my birthday.

OOPS! I said it twice

legostuff71 August 19, 2012 at 9:27 PM

I like the jabba ‘s palace the best, because you can do so much with it. I plan on building around it to exspand it a little. Add a prison section and maybe a driod torturing section. ( I hope LEGO comes up with max rebo and his band or jabba will get very bored . We know what happens to people when jabba gets bored.)

Reply

admin August 19, 2012 at 10:41 PM

LOL! Yeah, we don’t want Jabba to get bored, do we? 🙄

Reply

Eric at A Lego a Day August 20, 2012 at 9:21 AM

A Max Rebo set would be awesome. There’s a lot Lego could do with this. I love the way the rancor pit will sit below the palace set. They could keep adding to this idea.

I’m hoping for a Jabbs sail barge. BTW in the last 24 hours ive watched IV, V, and VI.

Eric at A Lego a Day August 20, 2012 at 9:23 AM

While I’m loving most of these new Star Wars sets, I fear Lego is pricing me out of them. I try to keep my Lego purchases right around the magical $.10/piece price point. These recent licensed sets are WAY more than that. I’ll keep waiting and hoping for clearance events.

Reply

admin August 20, 2012 at 10:20 AM

Eric, if you can wait, you will be rewarded. There are some excellent LEGO sales before Christmas, and also right after. 😉

I want to get the droideka battle pack there my fav clone wars charecters

And the a wing there so cool and there useally cheap! 😀 😀

Jasper August 20, 2012 at 11:52 AM

Good grief!!! All these sets seem more expensive today than they would’ve been four years ago. Like the Palpatine’s arrest. It’s looks like it should be more like $50 or something.

Reply

admin August 20, 2012 at 12:46 PM

Jasper, LEGO Star Wars sets have been around the 13 cents/piece range for quite some time now, going over the 10 cents/piece standard of non-licensed sets. Yeah, LEGO is not a cheap hobby, especially if you are into licensed themes. I would suggest perhaps waiting until the holiday sales towards the end of the year if you are strapped for cash. 😉

I would love to see a knew jabba’s sand barge set. I wish they hadn’t ruled out the idea of a celebration scene set. that would have been neat. And a new cloud city set should be released also.

Reply

admin August 23, 2012 at 8:00 PM

A new Cloud City is a great idea! 😀

Gabriel August 21, 2012 at 4:34 PM

The Old Republic battle pack? AWESOME! I mean, I’m cautiously optimistic about this one. I didn’t think TOR sets would work because players are already dishing out about $15 a month to play the MMO, but with the free-to-play option coming out this fall I hope that this set is not a rumor.

I am also a sucker for the planet sets. I hope that the miniature TIE bomber is a taste of things to come…

Reply

admin August 23, 2012 at 8:10 PM

Gabriel, yeah, the Planets series is sweet! Hopefully we will be able to get pictures soon! 😉

Accually the rancor pit was confirmed at comic con this year. Lego posted a picture on their official Facebook page.

I was in FL last week, I saw all of these at the lego store except the A-wing. Also you failed to mentioned anikin’s interceptor.

I wish I was still on vacation. Also remember legoland is not owned by lego, so VIP points cannot happen and if it rains, all out door rides stop.

Yeah, for some reason that smiley stopped working. I have noticed that too. No idea why. You can still use “cool” for it thought between :: That still works. 😎

These prices are…CRAZYYY Yeah I bet most of you dudes get more money to spend on your birthday besides fifthty bucks!!! When my grandpa dies it will be thrity he gives me twenty each year. $100.00 a year to spend on lego. Man when I turn thirteen I will mow so many lawns and buy the death star. But now I am only twelve and have one cent. I dont think LEGO is about to lower their prices. And my favorite.new set is probably the one that costs less judging by my.current finances. Sorry.about the mispellings and periods in this coment but I still havent got used.to typing on my kindle.
