My personal favourite ist 8038 The Battle of Endor. Becaus there are one of the first LEGO SW buildings in the Set.
And the minifigures are awsome, I think I want to buy a second Endor set.
I totally agree with you, Jonas O.!
And that's even the reason why I voted for
8038 The Battle of Endor
being my favourite SW set of this year.
I bought this set on Friday and finished it building up this morning.
Imo it has nearly only pros and nearly no cons. Like partly already mentioned it includes:
- a decent building - the bunker - and not only a piece of wall
- eleven minifigures and one droid
- three completely new minifigures: Chief Chirpa, Endor Rebel Trooper and Endor Princess Leia
- an Imperial Trooper for those people which can't afford the DS
- awesome and very realistic design of the vehicles and mainly the bunker
- awesome and very realistic interior of the bunker
- much playability
- 100 Euros is really not cheap - but for these many awesome contents it's a good price performance ratio - perhaps even the best price performance ratio of all SW sets until now!
My list of this year's favourite sets is:
1. The Battle of Endor
2. Home One Mon Calamari Cruiser
3. Echo Base
4. Tantive 4
(In CW sets I'm not interested and PT sets I don't collect.)

Rebel Blockade Runner.
The most anticipated Star Wars ship released in a looooong time.
To me, the release of this one, is a dream come true
I partly agree with you, KimT.
On the one hand I'm of course very glad to finally get a minifig scaled Tantive 4 since I've been waiting for it for years and it is the in the movies at first seen ship.
On the other hand imo the outcome is really disappointing.
The exterior is of course brilliantly designed.
And it's even great to get Antilles and a white-suited Princess Leia.
But the interior is bad: no hallway (which is the most important place in the movie!)
and no real chairs in Leia's office
. Plus there are only five minifigs, no silvern 3PO, no black-suited Imperial Officer and no other exclusive minifig.
