Today is surely a day of great news for the Lego fans. Recent rumors revealed some new sets not only for Star Wars but also for Lord Of the Rings. By the way, and as it concerns for this theme – LOTR -, the new sets that are planned to be release next June are still the first wave of 2013.
There will be a Wizard battle (79005), a Elrond Council (79006), a Battle at the Black Gate (79007) and a big pirate Ship Ambush (79008), from which I must say, I’m rather curious. Talking about Star Wars, until now, the new are a bit modest and present only a couple of new set, a Jabba’s Sail Barge (75020) and a Republic GunShip (75021).
The 2013 Summer City sets have finally been revealed and I must say that I’m really excited with some of them. There are clearly three sub-themes, all of them a sequel of older ones, and every one brings great news, despite the few available pictures until the moment. There will be some coast-guard sets, three cargo and even at least a couple of racing.
The Coast-guards will arrive with a plane, some patrol vehicle, and perhaps one or two boats. The Cargo will be represented with a heliplane (which I speculate that will bring a nice helicopter), a big truck and a cargo terminal that surely will capture my attention.
The new theme hasn´t start bombing on stores and the second wave of sets has already been revealed. According to Brickpedia there will be five new sets and seven (!!) new speedorz, in addition to the already existing extensive set list. The theme is not on the top of my priorities but I must confess that most of the sets have really very nice details and features.
Talking about the news, there will be a Twin Bike, a Gorila Striker, a Temple and a Swamp Hideout. These last two look pretty interesting because until the moment there were no king of building or structures in the theme, only vehicles, and if it is confirmed with further pictures they will surely be some great additions.
The new 2013 winter sets from star wars are not even released and the Swedish forum swebrick.se has posted some information about the second wave of sets for next year. It’s seems that among others we’ll see a Jabba Sailbarge, a AT-TE and a Republic GunShip, unfortunately and according to the user, very similar to the previous 6210.
As you possible remember, only a few weeks ago, the last unknown set of winter releases, the 75014 – Battle of Hoth, was finally revealed, so it’s kind of strange to see some further information of summer sets.
