    LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    I totally agree with you. Something like Final Duel or Palpatine's Arrest would be fantastic. Leia, Chewie, Lando, Vader, Boba & Carbonite Han? That would be :wub:

    It looks like a list of sets coming in early 2016 was leaked today by the folks over at MintInBox.net. Here's a writeup from MakingStarWars.net: http://makingstarwars.net/2015/07/star-wars-the-force-awakens-new-planet-name-revealed/

    Thanks for the great review. I was excited about this set but I'm pretty disappointed. Sabine is a Mando. How do you release her minifig without a helmet? Also, the character isn't just "tanned." She's a POC. So the fact that Lego made her pale white is pretty disappointing.

    Thanks for all the details. The Inquisitor looks AMAZING. Possibly the best dark side user mini-fig ever!

    Thanks for finding the new link! Just what I was looking for too.

    This is the first time I'll be making a purchase with a promo fig, but what happens if I buy two sets and later return one? I'm kind of on the fence on one of the sets and frankly wouldn't buy it if not for the Revan promo. If I decide to return it do I have to return the promo fig?

    Well by holding pattern I mean that the licensees didn't know what to do. The Ep II & III sets were already pre-planned and pushed out despite the movies being canceled. That was the old plan. This period marks the time when nobody knew what was next besides Ep. VII in 2015. As you mentioned, now it's Rebels, which is part of the new plan, but the OT sets were clearly a "what do we do now?" response. Otherwise we wouldn't be getting EP. V sets. Ep. IV is their focus both for Rebels and the general tone right now. It's similar to Hasbro's Black Series which is basically a stop gap focusing on OT to please fans while they waited for more direction. I'm guessing that in remaking Ep. V sets they saw a low cost way to put out "new" product that was popular. Anyway, to get back on track, when might we hear reports about Winter 2014? I'm sure we'll get plenty of Rebels sets but I'm curious what direciton they'll go beyond that.

    Thanks for the response. I realize my post was terribly unclear. I was wondering when rumors/reports start coming for what sets will be released in winter 2014. So after this summer wave. I just feel like all the licensees like Hasbro and Lego were in a holding pattern while Disney figured out what they were doing with Star Wars and that's why a majority of the summer sets are redos. I'm hopeful that the winter 2014 sets will be more fresh and new.

    I know we're just barely getting details regarding the summer sets but can someone share the typical timing for fall/winter sets? Personally, aside from the Cantina, it's hard fo rme to get too excited about a variety of sets redone from just a few years ago. But that's just me.

    Yeah but what does the bottom of the tower set look like? It seemed clear from the bottom of the Jabba Palace that there would be an add-on, but does the bottom of the tower lend itself to the same conclusion?

    Actual (but blurry) photo of the Rancor Pit set from Yodasnews.com: http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/471231_10151260766299867_907659474_o.jpg

    Why is this? Can someone explain to a newb why they nixed this set? Looks so awesome. I'm definitely satisfied with the Rancor set. It's a great supplement to Jabba's Palace. It wouldn't work well on its own, but its not supposed to be on its own. Though I am a little concerned about how they'll deal with the tower...

    Yeah that's a good call but the build might not be that exciting. Plus, an Arena would be disappointing unless it literally had a ton of figs. At best I can see them doing the scene where the two beasts are attacking Padme, Anakin and Obiwan. EII doesn't afford a lot of opportunities for fun builds. I'd bet my house that they'll re-do the Jango Fett Slave I though with an updated Jango to match the new Boba style. Maybe with Jango, young Boba and Obi-wan? EDIT: Ok, won't speculate further in this thread. Sorry!

    I certainly don't care for an Ewok set, but just responding to your question, it seems that Ewok toys are actually quite popular. I think the Ewok Hasbro figures sell pretty well. Kids love Ewoks so I can see that being a natural way for them to sell more sets to kids. I'm really hoping that part of the 20 sets in 2013 will include something like a Jedi Temple. It just makes so much sense. But then again, I can see them waiting til 2014 when Episode III comes out in 3D (if they do it at all). Any ideas on what a big Episode II based set would be?
