You are damned right with this one, sir.
But fun aside, i really have no imagination for wise master Yoda to be almighty and also outmanouvre some dogfighting hotshot with elaborated, fancy flying, spinning and rolling in the depth of space. While i seriously think that such would destroy the pursuasive image of a withered Jedi Master like him, i also have to admit that i would not wonder at anything this corpse show called TCW might produce blossoms of (please take note TCW fans: this is NOT directed at you!).

New sets i desire the most: Imperial Star Destroyer, Cloud City, Imperial Inspection, Mos Eisley Cantina, TIE Interceptor, Rebel Trooper (Alderaan uniform) BP, and Stormtrooper BP

Although this would be a rather cool set, I don't see it happening, it justs to much for lego, I'm still suprised that Yoda will becoming with an AT-RT set this year, but sadly I don't think well be getting a set thats less than 40$ with Yoda ever again.

My idea for this Target exclusive is Wesell Pursuit（Remade of 7133）with 4 figs（Wesell,Jango,Anakin EP2,Obi-wan EP2）at the cost of $40.
I can't understand why TCW Yoda will be in a set featuring a blue AT-RT,until I find Kit Fisto in 8088 ARC-170 starfighter.
The three figs in Z-95 set may consist of Pong Krell, a Clone Pilot with new Helmet and ARC Trooper Fives,the blue edition of the ARC trooper in 9488.

DId anyone see this article. It looks like eventually we might see some Republic Commando minifigs. Also their appears to be a new ship, a hybrid style delta 7b/eta 2 starfighter. TLG is usually behind a few years when it comes to TCW but it does give hope for the future. Personally I do not like the new jedi starfighter, wish they would just move to the eta-2 in the show.

I have to admit, I found Series 3 pretty disappointing...
-Coruscant Set: I think lego could have done something else, its not like I hate this set now, nice to get a Episode 2 CLone Pilot finally(I think thats who were getting) but, I would have rather see, an CIS Banking Clan Frigate with a Palpatine or something ahving to do more with Coruscant.
-Kamino Set: Really am happy about this one. I pretty happy well be getting an R4-P17 after all these years, this also has a down side to it though which is, this means we'll most likely get Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter this year but, this also indicates that we have like a 90% chance of getting a Slave 1 with Jango, Boba, Obi-Wan and hopefully Lama Su. This one is a purchase for sure.
-Asteriod Feild set: I like the idea of an asteriod but, I think that lego needs to stop with all the TIE pilots, I would have gotten this set if I came with a Falcon and a Leia with gas mask face printing instead of the TIE Bomber and TIE bomber pilot.
As for Planet Series 4 here are my preditions-
Geonosis Planet Set: Solar Sailer and Solar Sailer Pilot-9.99$
Hoth Planet Set: Rebel Transport Ship and Gneral Reeikan-9.99$
Umbaran Planet Set: Z-95 Headhunter and Jesse-9.99$
Thanks For Reading!

Of course we do. Cheap, easy designs all the way up to 2018.
Anakin's hybrid Jedi Starfighter
Obi-Wan's hybrid Jedi Starfighter
Asohka's hybrid Jedi Starfighter
Mace Windu's hybrid Jedi Starfighter
Plo Koon's hybrid Jedi Starfighter
Saesee Tiin's hybrid Jedi Starfighter
THEN they can start on the Interceptors for real.

We got the battlepacks for Clones and Imperials. Why waste a slot on them in the planet sets?

Depends really on whether it has an iconic vehicle or small location. The Force Unleashed had the Rogue Shadow, The Old Republic has its six different ships. Some sort of speeder that the character uses in 1313 would be okay, I guess. The game's not out until winter next year, so it'll be a while before we get wind of any sets.

But first let's look at all the planets featured in the films, and see what's missing.
(in order of initial appearence)
Naboo- N-1 Starfighter, any of Padme's ships, Droid Dropship, Hovertank, Droid carrier, Republic Frigate, Droid Fighter Tatooine- Podracer, Sandcrawler, Millenium Falcon, Luke's Landspeeder, T-16 Skyhopper Coruscant- Acclamator, Venator, Jedi Starfighter, Jedi Interceptor, Invisible Hand, practically anything else ever Kamino- Acclamator, Venator, Jedi Starfighter, Slave 1, clone dropship
- Geonosis* - any of the larger battle droids, clone dropship, Acclamator, Slave 1,
Jedi Starfighter, Geonosian Starfighter
- Kashyyyk - Wookiee Catamaran, clone dropship, droid wheel-tank
- Utapau - Grievous's wheelie-deelie, Jedi Interceptor, clone dropship, Venator
- Mustafar - Jedi Interceptor, Padme's ship, Palpatine's shuttle
Death Star- Star Destroyer, TIE Fighter, TIE Interceptor, TIE Bomber, Millenium Falcon
- Alderaan - Tantive IV
Yavin IV- X-Wing, Y-Wing, Millenium Falcon, TIE Fighter, TIE Advanced
- Hoth - Snowspeeder, AT-AT
- Dagobah -
X-Wing, Yoda's tiny shuttle thing Asteroid field- TIE Bomber, TIE Fighter, Millenium Falcon, Star Destroyer Bespin- Twin-pod Cloudcar Endor Moon- AT-ST, Millenium Falcon, Ewok Glider
- Death Star II** - TIE Fighter, TIE Interceptor, Millenium Falcon, Star Destroyer, Super Star Destroyer, Home One, B-Wing, A-Wing, Y-Wing
*While Geonosis has tons of vehicles associated with it, bear in mind the planet has rings, which could possibly be difficult to do on the planet mould itself.
**Somewhat unlikely due to the complexity of the mould, which can be speculated as part of the reason the TIE Interceptor was included with the first Death Star
And I didn't even include the Order 66 Planets (they would have more relevance to The Clone Wars series anyway). There's at least two more waves of movie planets that can still be done. After that...
Well, the closest odds are of course on The Clone Wars taking over. It's an obvious move, and I hope it won't happen. Honestly, I don't think it needs to happen. The Clone Wars is a big enough deal to sell large sets like the Dropship or The Malevolence. It has the stranglehold on Battle Packs. Does it need to take over the planets series as well? No. Will it? Quite possibly.
What I'd like to see happening is the planets series being used as a way to get out minifigs and vehicles that would not otherwise be done as full sets. Lobot is a prime example of this. He's excellent booster pack material, as he's made an optional extra, not a compulsory addition to a large set. This idea, including named but lesser-known characters would make the planets series the perfect way to address the Expanded Universe.
It's pretty much a given that EU large sets don't always sell so well. Hell, I wasn't even into Lego at the time but even I knew of the shelf warmer status of the TIE Defender and Rogue Shadow. But as mini-scale sets that can fit into a pokeball-sized shell? There's a thought. Not only that, but it's a way to get certain EU characters who don't have an obvious large ship to go with out on the shelves. So taking the popular Thrawn Trilogy of books as an example:
- Wayland with Star Destroyer and Grand Admiral Thrawn
- Myrkr with The Wild Karrde and Mara Jade
- Corellia with Katana Dreadnaught and Garm Bel Iblis
- Jomark with Imperial Shuttle and Joruus C'baoth
Alternatively it would be a good way to explore The Old Republic at minimal cost or risk, possibly with the companion characters:
- Korriban with Sith Fury and Vette
- Tython with Jedi Defender and Kira Carsen
- Hutta with Bounty Hunter D5 Mantis and Mako
- Ord Mantell with BT-7 Thunderclap and Aric Jorgen
- Dromuund Kaas with X-70B Phantom and Kaliyo Djannis
- Balmorra with XS Freighter and Corso Riggs
- Taris with Harrower Dreadnaught and Dr Lokin
- Nar Shaddaa with Mandalorian Cruiser and Blizz
- Belsavis with ISF Interceptor and Talos Drellik
- Corellia with Thranta Corvette and Doc
- Quesh with Republic Valor Cruiserand Nadia Grell
- Voss with Republic Striker Fighter and Lord Scourge
Likely? Well, I wouldn't put money on it either way, to be honest. I would dearly LOVE to see the Planets series given over to the Expanded Universe, but I think the lure of doing TCW planets might be too strong.

Except for maybe Alderaan...those buildings are far far away from the "planet" now.
