Review: 9493 X-wing Starfighter

9493 X-wing Starfighter.JPG

Get ready to lock your s-foils in attack position all over again. It hasn’t been long since LEGO discontinued the last version of the classic starfighter, 6212. That version, originating as the 4502 X-wing Fighter, has been around since 2004, winning the non-existent award for LEGO set longevity. With the anticipated introduction of the 9493 X-wing Starfighter in January 2012, there haven’t been any extended periods since 1999 that some form of X-wing hasn’t been available. Can this new version match the staying power of its predecessor or will it fade away in two years, only to be forgotten until it’s ultimately remade yet again? (more…)

LEGO Star Wars January 2012 Now Up for Preorder, Free Poster

Happy New Year, folks!

LEGO Shop@Home put up the January 2012 assortment of LEGO Star Wars for preorder. Delivery is to be expected on or around January 30. It should be noted that 9494 Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor and 9495 Gold Leader’s Y-Wing Starfighter are marked as “Hard to Find” meaning they are retailer exclusives. No word yet as to which retailer they will be exclusive to yet. All preorders will come with an exclusive LEGO Star Wars poster. No minimum order indicated and no image of what the poster looks like but if I had to guess, it’s going to be a poster showcasing all the LEGO Star Wars minifigs for 2012.

Is it sad that I’m no longer fazed by the high prices and low piece counts? Such as the TIE Fighter set, priced at $54.99 but has less pieces than Gold Leader’s Y-wing? Eh.

2012 Star Wars & Cars LEGO Ads Online Now

With all the leaks and images floating around right now It seems fitting that LEGO would join the party on the official front and you can check out ads for the some of the 2012 offerings on YouTube. The first video features the new X-wing and TIE Fighter designs and lets you get a good look at the play features of the iconic starfighter’s latest re-release. This one is more of a tease since the street date for the Star Wars sets is still a bit off, but if the next video whets your appetite then those Cars sets are already available on LEGO S@H.
Thanks to THX 1138 for the heads up!

Courtesy of German toy website SpielwarenHegmann.de, we now have pictures of some of the 2012 assortment of LEGO Star Wars, Cars, Super Heroes Ultrabuild figures, and Spongebob Squarepants. Keep in mind these are just a few pictures of the 2012 assortment. There are more headed our way but that weren’t uploaded by the site. We’ve seen some of the Star Wars sets, but now we get some nice clear pictures. The Cars and Spongebob sets, to my understanding, have never been seen before. Hit the jump for the complete thumbnail gallery.
