I guess I might as well comment on them as well. There's not a lot to say since we've basically seen the sets before, but there are a few things:
-The art for the Malevolence looks awfully boring. I'm not sure what they could've done to make it better really, but it's an awfully ugly set and the art hasn't exactly helped it out. With only one truly new minifigure (I don't count Battle droids, honestly they're on drip of paint different), there's really nothing appealing about that set apart from the fairly good price per part ratio. I suppose it's been quite a while since Count Dooku was in a set, so that's a nice addition, but overall not too impressive.
-The completed Pre Vizsla set looks pretty good, no complaints with the ship. It is a shame, though, that they didn't update Obi-Wan to his newer CW design like they did for Anakin. That should've been done.
-The skiff is really an excellent set. Four great minifigures, a nice-enough vehicle, and some nice dark tan. What's not to like? The price isn't even too bad (which is the big thing not to like about the Gungan Sub).
My favorite set is still the Gungan Sub, since it's an excellent model and it includes minifigures that I care to have, but I doubt I'll get it. I picked up the Podracers on impulse, though, so who knows.
It's also nice to see the EU sets, proudly advertising the Old Republic game. Even if LEGO doesn't make any more Old Republic sets, it's nice to see that they're continually willing to give a little less mainstream SW material a go.
I am so looking forward to those Old Republic sets. I love the way the Sith Troopers came out. Truly awesome figs. Now if only they would release a battle set with them.
I think the best set of his release will be the Skiff. Fantastic figs. Fantastic price. Cool bricks. It's pure win.
The Gungans sub is big and ugly and overpriced. Only redeeming feature is Amidala fig. The Pre Vizla fighter is in that same strange place as the T6 jedi Shuttle. It's cool, has some great figs, but that weird rotating wing makes it hard to handle or fit on the shelf. And the "top side vs underside" look of the wing is disconcerting. I'll probably still grab it. I'm a sucker for Mandolrian subjects.
When are these supposed to hit store shelves?
