What vehicle/figure would they release with that set? Only thing i can think of is the Millennium Falcon since it was travelling there  :sceptic:

You could make it with "The Tantive IV". You do see it in Episode III.

Love how Jabba's Palace looks. Don't really buy the Star Wars sets any more but that is a pretty cool setup
The Tantive IV / rebel blockade runner and maybe a Bail Organa fig?

Tantive IV with Bail/Leia/Antilles.  Does it really matter though?  TLG put a TIE Interceptor with the first Death Star so it's not like they care about planet/ship accuracy.

Anyone know what the trans-orange part at the rear of the Gungan Sub is?

The one thing that surprises me is that despite LEGO skimping on figs in other themes like City and despite LEGO continuing to tell everyone just how expensive minifigs are (and how expensive new minifigs are), they still put liberal amounts of minifigs (and new ones at that) in Star Wars sets.
Why can Star Wars get away with so many minifigs (and so many new ones) when City gets shafted with e.g. 2 figs in a set that really should have 3 or 3 in a set that should have 4 or whatever?

<Yoda> To cover costs, a premium, Lego can charge. Compare, the price per piece you must, and answers you will find. </Yoda>

Judging by the dimples on the side, I'd say it's this one.

No it's the Sundered Heart in ROTS, the Tan IV is in TCW and ANH.

Wow... so many nice figures!

Is that a new face for Han in the Palace? He looks kind of paralysed. The Malevolence is also smaller than I first thought (yay!).
The planet sets are nice, but all of the planets look a bit off. The marbling is okay on Bespin, but looks really weird on Yavin IV. The halves don't even fit together that well...

As for the Jedi Starfighter, I don't mind more. I have three at the moment, and I might be the only person that'd be happy if Anakin's was rereleased.  :tongue:
I'd be happy to, I missed both his and Ahsokas. And the Han in Jabbas Palace does look like he is blinded from the carbonate freezing.

Wow, all of the minifigures look great but the sets all seem lacking.  Well, it looks like I'll have money for some of the other great new themes, as I think I'll just be buying minifigures from Star Wars.  Though, the skiff and the fighter look pretty good.
I tend to agree, the only set that really excites me is Jabba's.

I almost couldn't finish reading that list due to the pain. :hmpf_bad: That Star Wars tax has definitely not let up... still, I might try to budget for the sith interceptor, even if this means Jabba's Palace is a no go.  :sceptic:

At least the Skiff is somewhat affordable.

I'm not really a Star Wars collector, but I must admit that TLG has done a good job in this wave. I am intending to...review the Malevolence.

Despite the price, I like these upcoming sets.

When will we get a Minifigure Series that only offers Star Wars characters?

... I can dream, right?
