LEGO is handing out (which means this is official and allowable to post) a three-page fold-out showing all the Toys R Us exclusives for the rest of the year. Most of them are sets we already know about and are currently available on Shop At Home. But, check out those Star Wars goodies!

I don't have access to a scanner, so these are just pics I took with my digital camera.

And, guess what they unveiled, just sitting here for us to look at and take pics of? The new Falcon. Smile I'll try to get some decent shots of that later tonight.

z0mg Wink ! This is so awesome, this must be God's work!

Edit: Shocked What!? No taun-tauns!? Crying or Very sad It's still awesome! But I'd love to have taun-tauns at least in some other set... hopefully...

I'm going to be blunt.

Radiant VII looks so crap. Sorry but it looks so terrible.
The green droid and Hoth outpost and snowspeeder are just sexy.
I want the hoth so much - and the fleshies.
2007 = expensive Evil or Very Mad

ANd great new avatar you have there

Wow.

A couple of observations...

- I ordered the regular X-wing yesterday . Doh!

- The Hoth set is pretty sweet. Interesting to note the slight redesign on the Snowspeeder. While I'm not complaining, its odd that in one respect the design's gone backwards a little bit - I much preferred the approach to the forward guns used on the last set.

- I know everyone will want the Hoth set to be bigger. But the flipside is this makes it much more affordable for those who mainly want the really good stuff (the figs, the probe droid).

- I don't know if I'd bother to pick up the Cruiser, but kudos to Lego for giving a capital ship a try at something other than UCS scale. I know we had the smaller ISD, but that was such an iconic ship I figured it would remain an exception.

I was hoping for PT ep 2 cruiser but this looks great. AWsome.

But then again I think they are doing this by year like this year is mostly Ep 1 stuff then next year ep 2 stuff and then the year after ep 3 stuff.

But this looks awsome. Shocked

Shocked O wow, I actually really like the looks of the Republic Cruiser Surprised
Still would have been better if they included a TC 16 minifig though, but the Green R2 Unit is cool too.

And the Hoth Base may not have TaunTauns, but still looks awsome, even though it does come with another snowspeeder =P And the Probe Droids abit disapointing looking, too-childish looking, but whatever its not a huge deal. I love the doors =D

And NOW I must go up to my room and start making room for these two sets. Very Happy

But why in this picture is the RC shown with the Xwing?

Totally awesome, but the Hoth set is a disappointment. It needs a taun-taun, some more fleshie rebels and snowies, and the turret isn't very good. Crying or Very sad



But the cruiser is awesome!!! Razz

EDIT: I forgot to ask a question. What is that yellow/smoke glass thing on the right side of Echo Base?

New sets!

Always make me!

Happy!

The Radiant ship will be bought by me, if it's under 100 bucks. The Hoth rebel base looks like it has a new snowspeeder with an accurate cockpit, and comes with a neat assortment, so it too shalt be purchased.

Thanks Mike!

PS- The Hoth set is basically a battle pack, so don't whine about no TaunTauns!

Is that a new gun on the Republic Cruiser, the one that the second officer to the right is holding? Or are those binocs?

drorls.

The snowspeeder pretty much looks the same to as the 2004 version (i htink that was the year) just with abit different colours, more grey.

EDIT: O wait I see what your talking about the cockpit change. ::D:

Looks like binoculars to me.



EDIT: So does anyone have a guess on the prices of these two sets?

Hey, that's way cool... I really dig that Republic Cruiser, not much for it's design, but I really want those dark-red parts! Very Happy
So... Another Millennium Falcon? I really wanna see this one! I hope there are more greebles in it's mandibles this time around!

But I still need those Taun Tauns... I'm sure that they will show up at one point, and I'm also sure of another AT-AT on it's way!

Regarding the new sets, great to see that someone has a sense of humor with calling that a Hoth set, it's far from it.
Honestly, no tauntauns, no wampa and a probe droid that looks like it's landed on it's head?
At best the set can be seen as a troop battle pack but for anything else forget it.
One nice surprise was the crusier, though not a fan of of the 1st movie I like this.

O...m...g.... I'm SO getting that Republic Cruiser! My guess is it's going to be about 75-100 bucks. I'm VERY disappointed in Hoth. I was expecting some Tuan-Tuans! On a similar note, I like the new Skelly Boat for Castle Very Happy .

A "battle pack" at 545 pieces? You have to be kidding... was the Hoth version of the X-Wing a battle pack too then? ::D:

Oh my god! That probe droid sucks! Mad ::D: and the snow speeder is kinda crappy, but the turret, the door thingy and the figs are great, the cruiser is kinda "meh" but still nice.

NO TAUN-TAUNS! Why?! How stupid can u be!

Nice army builder with 2 snowtroopers and 2 rebels, but NO TAUN-TAUNS!

The most iconic scene from the empire stikes back, if not all star wars films is taun-tauns and wampa, just stupid not to include them.

That's awesome!
I may pick up the Hoth Base (or RC) if I have any money left over from Castle line(and if it's cheap enough).

Good god, I am so getting these! I don't like it when Lego does "bases" or actual buildings because they usually suck because they focus more on the "play" factor for children, rather than the actual look in the movies for us collectors. Still, I'll be buying all of them, except for the X-wing Maquette thing...Luke's arms look like those giant worms in King Kong.


As far as the Republic Cruiser goes, sweet! It's probably going to be $ 100 here in the US, but I'll still buy it. I get more snowtroopers! Yay!


Now if only we could fit some Tauntauns and Rancors in here somehow...

What a disapointment. At first it looks cool, but the hoth base ads just nothing new. Exepet for the new collecors, kids, it's a great set. But everybody was expecting Luke or Han and at least one Tauntaun. I' would buy at least two sets. Now I will buy none of the new ones. Because when they finaly hit the stores I'll be so bored with looking at pictures of them that I won't have thay itch any more to buy them (damn you internet).

edit; those are very short lightsabers???

only going on what I've seen in the video game, the Republic Cruiser is HOT!

The Hoth is a bit weak, but woo woo, lots of figs and a Snowspeeder [that doesn't size up to 4500 IMO].

Whatever, Im buying multiples of the HOTH, maybe 2 Cruisers...
