True, but they could do some bigger scene about the Hostage Crisis episode. If I'm not mistaken, Sing sniped for Bane during the initial assault, so she was involved with that.

TLG is always inserting random figures into sets where they kind of relate, but not really. Why did Kit Fisto come with Obi-Wan's blue starfighter w/ Hyperdrive ring? Or Bossk with the new Slave 1. I don't know, but the more, the merrier.

Again, they could have just gotten the idea to make her into a fig after making Bane's Speeder, which serves for the Hostage Crisis set, and again I don't think they'd rerelease it within months of the previous incarnation.

Are there any pictures of the 2011 sets? I have seen some around, but just of the figs. I had a link for a battlepack but it was broken.

I hope that in 2011 they will stop giving Luke lady hair. I just hate his design, except for the old Tatooine Luke and the final duel Luke.

Ha. I agree. I was watching Star Wars the other day and noticed that his hair isn't much longer than Han's. I've gone and swapped out all of my Lukes' girl hairs. It just looks stupid.

Another Jedi Starfighter, a new R2 unit, Mace Windu and a couple STAPS...

Looks like a win in my book.

I think you will find it is actually a R8 unit http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/R8-B7

Hmm, well that Mace Windu Fighter is interesting. I was kind of hoping they'd make one. However, the picture is so small it makes it kind of hard to tell if there are any Purple pieces in it, or if the droid is purple. Also, I was kind of hoping they would include some of WIndu's purple clone troopers.

But I guess since purple pieces don't exist in a lot of sets these days, that was probably a pipe dream.

Seriously though, how many different Jedi Starfighters are they going to put out?

The T6 looks awesome all the way around, and I'm loving all of the new figs from all of these sets. As has been pointed out though, it'll probably be better to just wait for the magnets for most of them. But how can they call a single ship "The Battle of Naboo" when The Battle of Endor actually had enough figs (on both sides of the Force), vehicles, and other elements to stage a battle?

And the best news on this topic is about the Arrest of Palpatine set. That is one I will be looking forward to!

I can't really tell but is that a Tacticle Droid on the speeder bike in Mace Windu's set?

No. But there is supposed to be a Tactical Droid in the set. ;)

I don't know where Diaaabo got that quote from. The original Eurobricks post that was quoted on Imperium der Steine also mentions a Space Skeleton, whatever that may be.

There was no space skeleton so Diaaabo took the space skeleton out and instead we are getting Maces astromech,even better. XD

Yes, when we got the image and we saw no space skeleton, I removed it from the description. This set looks good to me, let's hope the price won't go as big as a wroshyr tree :|

The battle droid torso is actually called space skeleton body, so that might have been what's causing the confusion?
