Interesting, a translation snippet:
The Wild West experience with LEGO from April 2013 a new bloom. With western town and train, coach, air and teepees exciting kits will be created.
Images to be published in March.

You know, I see this complaint all the time, and I think it's wildly overblown or just outright false.
Both the licensed themes and LEGO's homegrown original themes always have sets in a wide variety of price points, and at comparable set sizes. Obviously a $49.99 licensed set costs the same as a $49.99 non-licensed set; I presume the canard actually means that we get less in a licensed set than we do in a non-licensed set at the same price point. I'm not convinced this is the case, at least not always.

Anyways, it's interesting but predictable that the sets are coming in April 2013.

Indeed, but even putting aside that option (I don't break up and sell off parts of sets, myself; if I keep a set, I keep the whole thing, even if it means having thirty or forty identical minifigures of Indiana Jones, say), I think the licensed sets actually offer comparable value to same-priced non-licensed sets out at the same time.
For example, check out the contents of the 2008/2009 Star Wars battlepacks, and compare them to those of 8401 City Minifigure Collection. All these sets have MSRPs of $9.99, and I'd argue the content of 8401 certainly doesn't outweigh that of, for example, 7668 Rebel Scout Speeder - the latter has both more pieces and larger ones, and makes a more substantial model that 8401's comparatively modest assortment of street fixtures and accessories. These sets were released a year apart, close enough together that inflation shouldn't really be a factor - their product lifetimes overlapped a fair bit.

The site is up on LEGO.com. The figures look great. There's an awesome new skull piece, too. I'm about to hit the hay, so I can't link it (darn the iPhone).

Why on earth would you want the old horse?? Besides the lack of articulation, it just doesn't look near as nice either. I assume we will be getting nothing but new horses in all future sets regardless of the theme so I would get use to them now. Personally I am glad to finally see some more variety with the new horse mold color.

What's up with all this licensed stuff these days? Lego doesn't have confidence, licensed stuff is more profitable, kids and parents look for (demand) it, what?
