Here is an interesting web page I found. It contains coverage from 07 the Australian Toy Fair:
- LEGO MTT wins award for best license product
- More pics of upcoming sets
- More battlepacks from LEGO?!? ('One interest item that was discussed was the huge success of the multi-figure battle packs of Droids and Clones. Lego was been so impressed with the sale of these sets that we will most definitely see more troop sets added to the mix'. see last sentence from the LEGO paragraph)

EDIT: oops, sorry. Here is the link:

Lego Star Wars Trade Federation MTT play set take out Best Boys Licensed Product but it also was awarded LICENSED PRODUCT OF THE YEAR 2007, and this is an understatement. The MTT has 20 battle Droids able to be deployed by the front rack and side hatches, 2 Destroyer Droids, 16 Blasters and is one impressive play set

Now all we need is more stormies and rebel troops in new sets *y*

That's fantastic news.  Gah...this makes me want it more now  :-/   Great news to hear that TLG is getting recognition for sets that perfectly fit what AFOLs want  :-D   Maybe this will be motivation

It's a shame they didn't take any pics of the Sith Infiltrator. I want see some more pics of that and see how it looks "in reality". You can see it at the bottom of the JSF w/ Hyperdrive Ring pic, though.

I am sure all the sets mentioned have had pics up on EB, but the Sith is a new image to me.  The only image I have seen of the MTT has been from the commercial that has been mentioned.  The image here showed the set as a whole.  You can never tell from the commercials what is exactly in the box.

I think the images here were of better detail.  It was great to see them.  I definitly liked the TIE Crawler.  That set looks  *sweet* .

That MTT does look amazing and getting an award just shows that this is Lego's year! we probably will get more battle-packs (come on rebel and stormies!).

Did anyone see those futurama figures aswell? They looked amazing!  :-D

You know if the wings on the S1 were better than this ship wouldnít be so bad, I know itís still small compared to other ships but at least it would have looked better. As it is now the thing looks horrible, I really canít understand how Lego screwed this up......again. :-X

Oh boy MF pack with rebels and snowies thatís what I want *wub*  Come on Lego donít make us beg for them :'-(

Oh and  *yoda* I hope you have alot of grey to replace all that blue. :-P
