Dutch etailer bol.com listed all of the January 2013 assortment for Star Wars on their site and included some pretty good sized images. I've rehosted them on our flickr account and posted them below.

Yay, new droidekas! And Episode II Clones! I will be getting that set!
Rancors are neither cuddly, nor cute. But it's one heck of a riding experience!

Man, they still suck at making Droidekas, don't they?

The AT-RT looks pretty interesting, and the droideka that comes with it looks good too--I'm not usually a fan of the newer droideka designs, but it's actually pretty nice. Just... what's going on with the ones in the last set? They look funky in comparison. Like... extra short. Hobbit droidekas? :S

Part of me wants to buy the Headhunter just so I can flip those wings around. They're driving me crazy!

Love the new packaging. The A wing has great lines; if not for the studs on the top it could easily look like a non-Lego A wing toy. The A wing, army builder sets, and At-RT are all purchases.

You know, I was just thinking about how the one thing LEGO needs to do is make more speeder bikes. Thank goodness they've corrected that problem with the BARC speeder set.

That AT-RT looks fairly nice, but it's still just comically huge.

Other than the nose FINALLY getting that split, the A-Wing is a big step backwards from the last incarnation included in the Home One set. The guns and area between the engines especially look like garbage...

They shouldn't. Even the "classic" Z-95 didn't have the X-Wing's forward sloping wings.

Not a comment on the Lego but the source material: I actually really like the Clone Wars' re-imagined Headhunter. The evolution towards the ARC-170 is handled remarkably (my one hangup probably being the dumb little winglets on the front of the starfighter.)

While I will still most likely only end up getting the rancor pit from this line, I am pleasantly surprised how nice some of the designs look. After seeing the list of these sets a month or so ago they are better than expected.

The MHC looks like a nice build and I can see how some people would be excited about the droid variations from more than 1 set.

I know, but I think it would look so much better. I was always a fan of the X-wing's wing design, and I'm bent on applying it here.

And, are there prices or estimated prices for these yet? I'm absolutely dreading to find out.

While I'm all for more accuracy in sets, I think two studs is too wide a split; 6207 more closely resembled the source material without it. One stud's width would have been preferable, and one plate's thickness even better, albeit unrealistic in a LEGO set.

I couldn't agree more about the guns, though.

That picture is from the New Essential Guide published in 2003 - hardly classic. You want this illustration from the 1996 Guide, or a sketch from the RPG sourcebooks if any exist. :p

Back on topic, I often see 7259, 7140, and several other sets with the wings built facing backwards in collection photos and the like (including, if I recall correctly, one of the X-wings avatars used on the old FBTB forums). Is there a reason for this? I've always assumed it was due to regional differences in building instructions, but that doesn't seem likely.

Wow, just when I thought I was going to slowly phase out buying all the LEGO SW sets they come out with a wave that gets me excited again.

I don't see a single pass in the lot.

That Rancor is pretty sweet, I might have to pick up just that and the A-Wing.
Everything else is kind of ho-hum, but that's coming from someone who never really got into the clone wars stuff.

The guide also had this sketch, and you can barely notice the slope to the trailing edge but it is there. Some guy made a pretty nice looking model of it. I don't know of any wing plates with such a narrow angle that would work well for that.

The 3 x 12 wedge probably would've sufficed, but SNOT'ed wings would've been ideal.

And the more I look at that A-Wing the more I dislike it. Not that it's a bad set or anything, just that it's so dull- it's just a revision of the same design from, what, 2006 or something? And one for a fairly uninvolving ship at that. This and the recent Falcon set really should've had a ground-up redesign, rather than barely noticeable revisions.

Completely agree, but I guess I just prefer them at least trying.

By classic I meant the more familiar post-Clone Wars style Z-95; I was saying the ship is classic, not the picture. Besides, your pic didn't show the straight wings, which is what I was highlighting.
