When I first saw this, I had thought it could be Cad Bane's dropship [i]The Sleight of Hand[i], although that never appeared in the show, so it seems unlikely.

It's not this ship.

Would love to see KOTOR sets (The Star Forge, perhaps?) and the Executor (Darth Vader's Super Star Destroyer).

Also, hope the rumor about the Arrest of Palpatine is true! I've been wanting that on for forever! I would also like to see a Yoda versus Sidious set. (From Episode 3)

It wasn't all that strange - Lucasfilm pushed the game as more of a multi-medi project, with books, comics etc. Toys were a part of that.

They did put out the now out of print 7672 Rogue Shadow. I never played that Force Unleashed game, but I know this ship was supposed to be from that game.

But then again, that's only one set.

Battle on Naboo containing bricks to build a Battle Droid carrier, multiple Battle Droids including a Pilot, plus Jar Jar Binks and a Gungan.
Bounty Hunter Ship featured in The Clone Wars, with mini-figs of Aurra Sing, Embo and an Assassin Droid.
T-6 Jedi Shuttle, coming with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Shaak Ti and Saesee Tiin.

These are definitely piquing my interest, especially that shuttle if it does indeed include Shaak Ti and Saesee Tiin.

I did a quick Google search on "Embo" though (for those of you following the CW series, he's one of the bounty hunters in the farm-defending episode on Felucia), but I'm curious as to why Aurra Sing would be included in that set if they never appeared in an episode together. Perhaps I'm reading into the fig combination too much, but it seems like a possible rumor to me.

I have a hard time believing 4 jedi in one set - especially if 2 are new. That would cost a lot.

T-6 Jedi Shuttle, coming with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Shaak Ti and Saesee Tiin.

And three months later, they'll be available in "magnet sets". ;)

Looks like another year where I won't have to buy much of anything SW.

GOT SOME PICS YO!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Z6ROolQ ... ture=feedu

Shaak Ti and the insane looking ARF Trooper = win.

One of these sets looks like a remake of the 7126 Battle Droid Carrier. I'm disappointed that the Mandalorian looks just like the knew Boba Fett, but Jango version. I was expected something like what they looked like in Knights of the Old Republic. I mean, its thousands of years before the prequel trilogy but I was expecting some different armour. (Especially helmet)

At first I was underwhelmed, but I'm liking this wave more and more now that I've seen pics. Esp the smuggler's ship.

I'm curious on the improvements to the V-Wing, it's a design I've always liked but the earlier V-Wing was very plain.

Not sure if I'll get the Jedi shuttle, but it has some nice minifigs (ANOTHER Kenobi tho, wow...seriously, enough of him and Anakin and Ahsoka!)

The battle packs look great!

Looks like a great release for figs

Battle Droids - There hasnt been a way to get a bunch of these guys in a while. Im not crazy that they come with Gungans, but oh well...

Aurra Sing and Shaak Ti - sweet

Bomb Squad Trooper - This has to be number one on my wishlist. I cant believe they will put one out.
ARF Trooper is great as well.

Mandalorian - My Nephew wants "The Blue Guy" as much as I wanted a Bomb Squad Trooper. I am very happy he will now get one.

Assasin Droid - I am so sick of these.

Too bad I couldnt care less about the ships. The V-Wing looks ok though why is it "imperial"?

I think it's just a time period thing. Like the all-grey Imperial Venators at the end of ROTS.

The action-figure-sized models had an early-Imperial-era V-Wing and ARC-170 recently. I am curious why TLG felt the need to go there - I'd have been happy with an updated, but still Old Republic design.

I'm also happy that one request of mine has been answered - if you're going to give me a battle pack, give me an army, don't give me specialized figures (like Zev Senesca or an AT-AT pilot or Imperial Officer), just give me lots of grunts. I'd have still preferred not having the vehicle and getting one more fig, but whatever.

ARF Trooper, Quinlan Vos, Shaak Ti, Saesee Tiin and most of all, Aurra Sing <3

The bigger ships don't seem so appealing to me, but the BARC speeder looks nice. The new V-wing also looks great, and it seems we have a chromed R2. It also seems we are getting a new mould for IG's head, painted Jar Jar head and old style pilot droid torso, with just some hints of blue instead of having if fully coloured. Thumbs up for all this, can't wait to see better pictures and reviews of the sets!

Yup, going to be a cheap year for me so far from the looks of it. Might get the V-wing if it isn't too overpriced (though how likely is that, these days).

Couldn't have said it any better.

The minifigs look pretty sick for 2011. I never picked up on the CW stuff, but the figs will be nice as Sassee, Aura and Shaak were in the prequels for a smidge, so that will be nice for the movie pieces.

The Jar Jar is new w/ that painted head right? I'm bummed it's another droid carrier, but whatever.

The Mandalorian pack would have been color w/ different paint schemes. I don't need three Jango knockoffs running around, but I bet there will be some good customizations out there for them.
