Alright here are my opinions on all the new sets:
First off is the LAAT and AT-OT set:
At first impression, I was shocked that TLC even made this set because no one saw it coming. But I looked at it, and it doesn't really look that great. I don't know if it's supposed to be that way, but the AT-OT looks ugly because it's missing the whole top. And secondly is the extraordinary price. 1700 pieces for $250?! I'm not getting this one. The minifigs aren't even good enough for minifig collectors to want this set.
Next, the Home One:
Ok the pictures show that this set is indeed bigger than I had thought. But $110? I thought TLC said they would make this set under $100. Maybe it's the TRU markup. But anyways, it's so nice that I have to find a way to get this. Nicely detailed control room and the minifigs are the best part. The A-wing looks great, but I just wish it were red.
This is one that is somewhat a "must get". New palaptine minifig with the crazy face and the senate guards are indeed new molds and not just a blue clone helmet. I really think the death star hologram is a nice little detail. If you're looking for an interior, you're not gonna get much, because most of it is made up of detachable parts such as the escape pod, gunning station, pilot station, etc. But if you look at the chancellor's room, it is amazing. That table actually looks nice and I will take this tiny but detailed interior over the ISD's big but plain and ugly interior. It's a good thing that the escape pod opens up and is not like previous versions. $120 sounds reasonably and that's what I predicted in the first place.
It's a lot nicer and sleeker than I thought, but I already have a Y-wing so I will pass on this one. The price per piece ration is fine as it is
Wow this one is nice. Too bad that Home One and Venator are so expensive already that I won't have a chance of getting this one. But looking inside the hanger, it's not too great but at least it opens up and is easily customizable, not to mention playable. The AT-ST is comparable to the UCS one and the new ewoks are very nice. I'm not sure whether the grey ewok is unfinished or what but it looks awkward. Nice speeder bikes, strange ewok glider (I think it should be made of plates instead of cloth but oh well), and nice minifigs overall with lots of detail.
The price is what I had imagined and it's well worth it, because of the minifigs. I guess that minifig is Nute Gunray and a Greedo-type minifig that I completely forgot the name of, but they both looks nice. The ship is just okay but it's good that it does open up.
$5 more than it really should be and based on the pictures, there isn't much. The pictures don't even have the clones with the jetpacks, so I'm still kind of confused. But the tank droid is really nice and looks a lot better than the previous one.
Finally Echo Base:
Again, $5 more than it should be, but the minifigs make up for it. Nice rebel helmets and taun taun is more detailed than I thought.
So in conclusion, the best part about these new sets is the minifigs but I think TLC went overboard with the prices. Still not sure about Home One because I don't know the piece count yet, but it cost way more than I had predicted. A lot of these sets are must haves that collectors need to get. However, I'm still wondering why the pirate tank and mid-scale falcon weren't there.
So... I have narrowed down my wish list to the Venator, Home ONe, tank droid, and echo base
