Okay so I know it may be a bit early to post this, but I figured I may as well start a thread to "follow-up" our 2012 sets. So, without further ado, here is the 2013 sets thread!
To start things off, I came across a big suprise this morning: FBTB just posted the official list of the first wave of 2013 Star Wars sets (no images so far except for the rancor set). I know most of you guys aren't into star wars as much but I thought I'd show it anyway:http://www.fbtb.net/2012/08/25/lego-star-wars-january-2013-set-list-revealed/
Here's the list as well:
-Kamino w/R4-P17 (yay!) and jedi starfighter
-Coruscant w/Clone Pilot and Republic Assault Striker (whatever that is)
-Asteroid Field (?) w/TIE Bomber and TIE Pilot
-The Old Republic Battle Pack (AWWW YEEEEAAAAAA) (2x sith troopers and 2x republic troops [I know the page says clones but old republic troops ARE NOT clones])
-Clone Troopers vs. Sniper Droidekas battle pack (hopefully some regular clones instead of ice cream)
-A-Wing w/Admiral Ackbar (:trap:), Han Solo (?) and A-Wing Pilot
-AT-RT w/yoda, clone trooper and assassin droid (probably yet another un-realistic, colossal AT-RT version that will be super expensive compared to the 2005 version)
-Z-95 Headhunter (
) w/2x clone troopers and General Krell
Sets look pretty cool. Finally getting an Old Republic battle pack! I'll be buying tons of those.
I've also noticed that a lot of these new sets feature clone troopers, and I'm willing to bet that they're gonna start making Ep. III-ish clones now since the ones in TCW have changed their armor too.
