Somehow, your render looks quite a bit better than the official model.  :laugh:

Not a bit. It looks way better  :laugh:
But the model itself looks very, very good. Only this price... :sceptic:
Overall, one of the best SW sets ever in my opinion.

Thanks, I wonder why not somebody make a set weight/price or volume/price ratio, too. (?g/US ?cc/US etc.)(include/exclude non-plastic parts)
All we need is a database of parts weight/volume.(Can be estimate by digital part model database, or measure the real parts)

Look at the top right of the picture, there is something SW on that poster
You will find and kill General Kota, if you refuse, the woman dies.
You will return to me and give yourself to the dark side, if you resist, she dies.
And when your training is complete, you will hunt down and execute the Rebel leaders. If you fail, she dies. -Vader to Starkiller

Thanks for the pic, Bricksan, and thanks for the link, just2good. :classic:

The 2013 rumors topic is now up; further discussion of the Rancor Pit belongs there. I'll move these posts over there in a moment...

...and done.

Remember, guys, this thread is for discussing the rumored (pretty much all confirmed, now) 2012 sets themselves, not where they've been spotted and where they're available. I've moved a few posts over to Availability. (Future Star Wars Sets) Thanks! :classic:

Sorry for the double post.

I know off site reviews aren't recommended here, but the brickshow has posted the first review for Palpaines arrest. I would not usually post this but there is not one yet on EB. Enjoy :sweet: .

Does anybody know of any good review for the Battle of Hoth board game? I can't find a review on EB and was really considering trying to get this shipped over to the US  :classic:

Hi, if this is a dumb idea, then sorry, but I have checked the German prospectus and Pre-Viszlas Starfighter is listed as a normal set, not as exclusive limited edition. Then my question is - since Lego used to produce two exclusive limited edition sets in second wave, what is the second set together with the Palpatines Arrest. Is it the Advent Calendar, or is there any possibility that Lego may surprise us with one more set?

For what? The next SW wave should be coming out Nov/Dec, here in the States. But that would be the '13 sets...

I'm pretty sure that 9525 is a LE set. Maybe not in your part of the world? I'm not 100% though, so I may be wrong.

Well, in Germany it definitely is not. It stands in the prospectus and moreover I bought one in a normal retail shop, so there may be a hope for one set more, although its unlikely. But lego has surprised us many times..

2012 should be pretty much tied up now apart from the full release of the UCS B-wing and some kind of exclusive set for the up coming Star Wars Celebration. :classic:
