NYTF09: Lego - Star Wars


6 comments posted

Video isn't working for me.

Venator - AWESOME! Loved the Star Destroyer from a year or two back and this looks similar in size and play factor. Now all we need is a UCS version...

Drop Ship - More awesomeness. The AT-OT looks pretty slick and I can't wait to try out the drop ship with the AT-TE. Plus, more clones!

Y-Wing - After the Venator, the one I'm looking forward to the most. LOVE the bubble canopy for the gunner.

Mon Cal Bridge/Hangar - Looks neat, but I might hold off until it goes on sale.

Endor Bunker Assault - Another AT-ST? What is that, about the fifth version?

Echo Base - It's Hoth, it's Han Solo, it's Snowtroopers. Win!

The new Clone Wars stuff I've had for a while now. The new AAT is a good design. I love the Republic Attack Shuttle, but I was a bit disappointed with the LEGO version. Guess I was hoping for a bigger version.

My jaw hit the floor when I

My jaw hit the floor when I saw that giant Venator-class cruiser, but my awe quickly turned to disappointment when I saw it was meant to interact with minfigs. I missed the chance to get a UCS Imperial Star Destroyer (they took it offline just as I had the money for one, goddamnit!), but- LEGO, pay attention!- I would not miss getting a UCS Venator-class ship!

The Clone Wars shuttle looks interesting at first glance, but I decided I don't want one. The transport for the AT-OT looks cool, but I'll have to wait until I get a closer look to decide if I want one.
What I really want, though- you listening, LEGO?- is the Theta-class shuttle in which Emperor Palpatine picked up Darth Vader from Mustafar. Four figs I would like in it: a missing-limb Vader on a stretcher, Palpatine, shuttle pilot, and a med droid.

The rest are meh.

UCS Star Destroyer: if you have the means, I highly recommend getting one. It is SO choice. It's one of my favorite pieces of my Star Wars collection. Fun build and great to display.

I sincerely hope a UCS Venator is in the works. The one that LEGO showed at Celebration III wouldn't happen, but I don't see why they couldn't do a 3K-4K piece version. A working dorsal hangar bay with microscale Gunships and Jedi starfighters would be worth it.

The Clone Wars Y-Wing is mostly Expanded Universe geek factor on display. The back story on the Y-Wings is that at the time of Ep IV they were very old and originally had more hull plating before the Rebel Alliance stripped them down. The bubble canopy for the gunner also comes from the original production art from McQuarrie. Like I said, very geeky. ;-)
