    Ok, well I think that regardless of what clone wars like figs they had put in, I dont think it would sell as well as a clone wars set. Anyways hopefully KimT or Whung will appear with some more information or pictures soon! I really want to know if these are the sets we are getting! Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    Yes, but the point I was making about these two sets was why release them when they are no where near as popular as the clone wars to kids at the moment. They may be a demand from fans for these two sets but not from kids. I dont think TLG will base it on any particular episode on second thought, as Oky said, they will probably just throw in a random Jedi because it is a jedi shuttle. Although we would get the best figs: Plo, Ahsoka, Boba and Aurra (they wouldn't give us Hondo but maybe Bossk) from episode 22 it did not feature as prominently as it did in episodes 3 or 17 which is why I think it would be the latter. However whatever they do with that set, im pretty positive they will throw in a completely unrelated fig like Ki-Adi or Shaak Ti . . . . . or Darth Maul Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    They never did make that argument about Luminara. However when they do make a fig that isn't a main character, they normally don't release them again. For example: we probably wont ever get another Onaconda Farr, Aayla or Turk etc. I think TLG would have it in their minds that they've already released a Luminara fig, so why would they release another. I think this is bad though! Haha that would be so funny if they killed her off because Anakin actually did fly through a sep cruiser Yeh, and how they are going to kill them off I do not know, hopefully TLG will give us figs before then! Back on topic: I do hope that the bounty hunter gunship is the one from episode 17 of the clone wars! CallMePie: That wasn't Eeth Koth... You're no star wars fan Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    Yes I agree and it is weird the choices of characters that TLG seem to choose to make these sets So I suppose we could get her. I think what excites me so much about getting Adi is that she is such a small character, and normally TLG don't do that! I do agree that she is clearly the least likely out of that lot. I do think Shaak ti or Ki-adi are the most likely. I do have a bad feeling that TLG will deciede not to do Luminara again as they will claim that they have already done a fig of her (the LUL... hardly a decent minifig ) I also hope they put Eeth and Adi in future episodes as they are great Jedi!! My fear is that if TLG did make Eeth, they would just do a print version I think the most exciting way would be if they made a normal head and created a mold on top for the horns and hair. Haha it would also be great to get him, but like I said about about Adi, it is probably unlikely. Any ideas brickdoctor on how TLG could make Eeth, if they tried? I think Mr filoni majorly screwed up again with bringing back Eeth as now he has to kill off Eeth and Adi before the end! Although if we look at his current respect for other media in the star wars universe he will probably just leave them alive because he is so stupid. It does make me angry as there are so many continuity mistakes in TCW. Hopefully he will sort that out and this years wave of sets will show us whats going to happen is season 3 Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    Haha, not helping I'm crazy as it is! I think Shaak Ti is the one I want the most as she is easily one of the most striking members of the council. Then second would be Ki-adi is very interesting and his appearance in Landing at Point Rain was fantastic! I really like Adi Galia and think we should get a fig of her and I want to see more of her in the clone wars! I think TLG should remake Luminara as the LUL version was VERY annoying (why they ever thought that would be a good idea is beyond me). Another Jedi that has appeared in TCW and we have yet to see is Eeth Koth. Any idea's on how TLG would do him as a fig? I think it would be hard as one half of his head is horns and the other is hair Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    Wow, do you really think they would ever release an Adi Galia fig? Ha I'm just feeling a huge amount of irony as about 5 years ago after revenge of the sith came out thinking to myself: "out of all the members of the jedi council, lego will never, ever EVER release Adi Galia" haha it would be very funny if they did now! All of those Jedi are great and it would be cool if we managed to get all of them along the way! And thanks Oky, haha I'll keep that in mind, to me we are somewhere in 2009/2010/2011, I really need to work out what year it is haha!! Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    Yes I did mean this year so thanks That was my suspicion too, but which jedi do you think they will give us this year, if you had to guess? The thing is Mace Windu and Obi where seen with cad bane in that craft in S02EP3 so I am really worried they may just give us those 3 figs and nothing else. Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    Yes I do know that. The reason it won't be from the clone wars season 3 is that it is called "imperial V-wing" rather than just V-wing or Republic V-wing. Thanks anyway though, How likely do people think it is, that we will get some new jedi this year? I am so desperate for new jedi and TLG did such a great job of Aayla! Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    Because right now, in terms of what star wars and lucas arts are marketing: we are in the middle of an enormous clone wars-fest. TLG have continued to make OT sets as people still recognise the classic characters of the star wars universe (which makes for good business). What also makes for good business is selling lots of clone wars sets as lots of kids watch the show, so they all want a lego Anakin and Ahsoka to play with, along with their favourite ships from the TV series. It seems out of place to release a set from episode 1 (which excluding the OT) is the least recent. Although many have seen episode 1, the main interest of their target market is with the Clone Wars tv series. Lego also like releasing sets that are veichle orientated and the title suggests a playset. Im not saying we havent seen them, but again another factor which is out of place. Why would they make an episode 1 set, when they could re-release another Anakin and Ahsoka!! (They really like those two ) RoflWafls: The reason it probably wouldn't be clone wars is because that wasn't a "battle for Naboo". That was just an attempt to poison the water supply. Unless the V-wing is from TFU2, it is out of place for the same reasons, Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    Ah you keep saying that! People who know things scare me! I just cant see the TLG making an episode 1 battle of Naboo set and an imperial V wing. It seems so out of place!! I'm gonna stick by what I think and then if it is the real set list then people can say "told you so" etc. I'm sure when we get the descriptions of the sets and we know what figs are in them it will shed more light on the situation. As long as we get a new jedi in the first wave, I will be happy Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    Thanks KimT. Personally I don't think this set list is real and if it is I will be very surprised. However it is so much fun to speculate on what could be coming up and its normally at around this time each year that we start to get rumours and then eventually some blurry prelim pics. I will be very excited for when we do get the first pics and also if we get another set list: as it will lead to more speculation Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    -Tilius- hit the nail on the head, Ignore what is said there as it means absolutely nothing. No rocket clone, that belongs in "star wars sets anyone?" section. Im sure if you ask someone will move it for you. Has anyone on Eurobricks seen the 2011 trader catalogue because I dont understand where these set lists are coming from although it seems a reliable source as KimT has posted it. If not is this just the pre-2011 hype? Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    KimT/Stash2Sixx, couldn't one of you confirm what figs we are getting or hint to us what we can expect in the upcoming sets? Also how long do you think it would be until we can expect photo's? By the way: Nice thought 'blhc11', I hadn't thought of that and that is a good possibility and it would make a great set. On the other hand, if it was that ship it would most likely be called 'Pirate gunship' rather than 'Bounty hunter gunship". Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    Future Star Wars Sets

    The last figure i remember was that Fans of lego make up about 25% of the total profit and 75% is the kids. So basically all the signs are showing that it would be HIGHLY unlikely for TLG to end the line. IF they released a space line INSTEAD of the star wars one, i think about 15-20% of the fans would continue to buy it (which is good) but only 20-25% of the kids would (which is awful). They are also about to release another lego star wars game, which means kids will want to buy sets so that they can get the sets etc. On the other hand this is just a guess and maybe the lego group are no longer interested in money.....

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    The more prominant and well known V-wing was used by the republic, late in the clone wars, which then became the Empire after order 66. TFU2 is set in early Imperial times which is why people think that it would be a TFU2 set (which is a very good idea so whoever came up with it... nice one ) The V-wing used by the rebels has not appeared as much and is only used by the rebels so this set is pretty clearly referring to the Alpha-3 Nimbus-class model. I am pretty sure with the release of a death watch battle pack, that the bounty hunter ship will be the death watch ships used in episode 12 and 14 of the clone wars: Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    My first thoughts on these sets are: 7913 Clone Trooper Battle Pack (Clone Trooper, ARF/C (?) Trooper & Bomb Squad Trooper: I Think that this will have the new clone troopers that are being used for season 3 (like the image from the comic con) however season 3 does still seem to still be phase 1 clones so perhaps this season will be a crossover. If this battle pack is phase 1 clones I think we will see either 2 or 3 new clones but perhaps some of them will not be new ones i.e. another clone gunner or another captain rex etc. 7914 Mandalorian Battle Pack (3 Mandalorians?): This battle pack is very clear, I think 2 or 3 standard deathwatch soldiers with different weapons/gear but same torso and helmet and then 1 commander (hopefully with a darksaber!! ). 7915 Imperial V-Wing Star Fighter: Well this will probably be larger than the last V-wing and with more detail and pieces as well as a new colour scheme. Im not sure what pilot they would put in for this (as an episode 3 pilot should be correct but if it is imperial then a tie pilot, but then again, why wouldn't the "tie" pilot be in the "tie" fighter (this set could include the same pilot that we saw in the theta class shuttle released this year). 7929 The Battle Of Naboo: Really not sure what to think about this one. If this is episode 1 (which it probably would be) I cannot picture this being a real set for the price that is next to it! If I forget the price, then I can see padme, Anakin, Obi and jinn, maybe panaka and naboo guard + two battle droids and a destroyer? But then when you look at the price again, TLG would never release that many figs in a set of that price 7930 Bounty Hunter Gunship: This sounds like the ship that was seen in episode 12 and 14 of the clone wars so again would continue the use of the deathwatch figs. The other option for this could be the ship VERY briefly seen in episode 17 which would mean we get embo, suki etc which would be amazing however I think the fan side of me may have just taken over for too long for that to actually be true, as it is very unlikely! 7931 T6 Jedi Shuttle ("Fett Ship"?): Wow this sounds very exciting. This is very believable and should include a clone, cad bane, mace windu and obi (as these were the characters using the ship in episode 3). If not it would probably include plo koon, ahsoka and maybe aurra sing and boba fett as a child. However knowing TLG logic of including figs with ships, this set would probably come with Ki-adi-Mundi, Darth Maul and Luke Skywalker ....... If this is the correct set list it sounds like a very positive start to next year! What makes it not believable for me is the battle of Naboo and Imperial V wing as they sound so out of place and irregular. Also this list contains no OT sets, and although I would personally prefer it if they never released another OT set again, I know that wont happen and it is weird for the set list next year not to include OT sets Thanks for reading, Batman1±

    Future Star Wars Sets

    ^ I would assume we would get only clone wars battle packs next year as its always gone PT/CW so now its back to CW with the 2010 Hoth BP. I think TLG has pretty much covered all the vehicles that appear in the movies (by using the CW franchise) so hopefully they will start to produce some less well known vehicles that all the fans have been waiting for I also think it would be annoying if we saw another 10 Anakin's in next years sets so hopefully they will branch out into more jedi fingers crossed!! Here is my prediction/hopes for next year: -Kamino vehicle (until we have seen the episodes we cannot know what to expect) that will hopefully include Shaak Ti (she is LONG overdue as a figure) -For the BP I hope to see Death watch, maybe a bounty hunter battle pack? There could also be Clone vs Droids BPs again but instead with: -Droids = Commando Droids, ultra battle droid, destroyer droid and B2 battle droid -Clones = New 1.5 clone trooper in different armour depending on rank -I think the new minifigs we are likely to see this year could include: -Shaak TI -Clone 1.5 -Ki-adi-mundi -Aurra Sing -Mando' -Pherhaps a new seperatist leader or maybe some geonosians Thanks for reading, Batman1±
  21. I completely agree with this! Lucas said this would be about the war and other Jedi, a lot less about Anakin. It is embarrassing how badly they have failed on that front. Although to kids, the other Jedi are not as recognisable as Anakin and Obi, they should be pushing forwards the other Jedi, so that they become popular. They have done this with Ahsoka, and they really should be doing this with the other characters, such as Kit fisto, Eeth koth, Adi Gallia, Ki Adi to name a few. I think that they have done a good job with Plo Koon, and with a little more screen exposure, I think they will have got it right. Introducing new Jedi is great too, and the images of the new Jedi for season 3 looks great!! I am really excited about him and hope we see a lot of him. One problem I want to know is how they will sort out the Eeth Koth - Agen Kolar and Adi Gallia - Stass Aliie dilema (or if they will even bother?) Any thoughts on this? The other problem with the limited viewing time which we see these other Jedi is that they only appear once, which is really beginning to frustrate me. I for one, really really enjoyed the Grievous intrigue episode, as I loved seeing members of the Jedi council out on field missions during the clone wars (this is the same thing that I really enjoyed about the dark horse comics of the clone wars). The problem is they show us Eeth Koth and Adi Gallia, and then we never see them again... EVER!! They bring in a new Jedi: Nadar, and Kill him off straight away! We only see any of the other Jedi for one episode! Following this trend, we can expect to see the new season 3 Jedi (do we have a name yet?) to be killed off after his one appearance in whatever episode and never see him again! They need to have some episodes (for example) where Eeth Koth, Plo Koon and Shaak Ti go on a mission together and we don't see obnoxious Anakin for a whole episode! Another thing that I don't understand about the series is why is the Jedi Council never actually all together? It is really beginning to annoy me that we never see the Jedi council, and when we do see (Yoda and Mace) they are only giving orders or in a hologram! They have barely appeared in the series when actually doing anything! Another annoying side affect of the Anakin overkill is that they have over exaggerated his powers and his position in the Jedi order. He is not even a master yet, and he is answering back to Mace Windu and Giving orders to Jedi that are either higher up the command chain or are clearly more experienced Jedi than him. He should at least not be answering back to members of the council. In terms of what we have seen in the season 3 trailer, I think some of it looks like it has good potential and the trident things attacking Kamino look good, not sure about the new super duper uber killer battle droids yet (as why would they have them and then they wont appear in episode 3). The new Jedi male looks great and Shaak ti (FINALLY) is making me very excited about this season!! I think that the trailer will only show us clips from the first few episodes (as the season 2 trailer didn't show us anything past episode 13, so there is definitely room for plenty more stories and hopefully Jedi. After reading this back I have realised what a huge rant that was, however, I think it was necessary Hopefully season 3 will bring more balanced stories of less Anakin and more Jedi Because in that way we may also get more chance of Lego Jedi Figs (I'm hoping for Shaak Ti fig next year ) Thanks for reading, Batman1

    Thanks for replying to my post and thank you for a pleasant welcome :) Ah thanks for clearing that up about the fleshies, now i know for future mocs when i spot the professor ;) I also like your use of the darker flesh tone figs, very nice :) Ah that is very understandable about your kids and so nice that you build things for them :) I am greatly looking forward to a finished gotham street!

    batman vs. Spiderman

    Personally I don't like "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" as its too childish for my liking, but regardless of my opinion, it has not been as successful as BatmanTAS or "The Batman". I agree about them breaking free of the "Batman vs" mould as I can picture kids buying a set with just the joker in, that doesn't have Batman. I suppose what TLG might argue is that kids would want a batman and a villain in every set (even though that is not how it works in other themes). The thing that was poor about the buggy was the design was simply lazy. Lego could have done two small vehicles of the same number of pieces and made a much better set, just through more attention to the design. I agree with the above that it is disappointing when we get sets like that which are really not worth it. :( Batman1-

    2011 themes and sets?

    I am always really hoping for the return of the Batman licence! But in that area of discussion, perhaps one of the new licensed themes next year will be a superhero theme, as I do believe the "batman licence" is in fact a licence for Lego to produce sets based on anything from the DC universe? (If someone could clear that up, it would be much appreciated). I am not an IJ fan (although the pieces do come in useful for gotham) but I can definitely see the logic in bringing back IJ, as like batman, the sets prices have become very inflated due to high demand! (I also think the return of IJ is more likely than Batman at the moment). Hopefully we will get new pictures of the 3rd wave of collectible minifigs soon, as they are really exciting for new parts and pieces! Batman1-

    batman vs. Spiderman

    Yes I did take time to read the other posts as I didn't want to unnecessarily repeat none important information, however, the reason I repeated what some other members had written was to express the fact that I agree and to add what I think to the discussion. I think it is important for us to understand and discuss why and how, as then we can move forward to helping/persuading the Lego group to re-introduce the line! :) I think that a petition is a great idea, but I am unsure of how many would sign it, apart from me and you of course (as well as other loyal batman fans). If there were a petition, I agree that someone who has remained consistently passionate about the batman line should put it forward (to list a couple; penguin, bat brick). If they reply, I would like to know how many you think would sign to have the line returned as well as, how many people would we need for the lego group to even consider our request. Perhaps this should be put forward in the ambassador forum, to see what someone form Lego would actually say, and if anything we can do would make a difference? Batman1-
