LEGO previews their fantastic Episode II offerings at Toy Fair with a few sets and the introduction of the new Star Wars Writing System. Here's a rundown of the new AOTC sets:

Republic Gunship (7163): Easily the centerpiece of the new assortment, the Gunship was displayed with 3 Clonetroopers, 1 Super Battle Droid, 2 Destroyer Droids, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker. (686 pieces, $89.99)

Jedi Duel (7103): Comes with Count Dooku and Yoda. Having the little Jedi Master as a LEGO mini figure makes this set in my opinion. (81 pieces, $9.99)

Tusken Raider Encounter (7113): Now what is Anakin doing with 2 Tusken Raiders…hmmmm (90 pieces, $9.99)

Bounty Hunter Pursuit (7133): Includes Zam Wessell, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker minifigures, (253 pieces, $29.99)

Slave I (7153): Comes with Jango Fett and little Boba Fett. (358 pieces, $49.99)

Jedi Starfighter (7143): LEGO will offer this vehicle a Sneak Preview due out in March. Includes Obi-Wan Kenobi minifigure. (138 pieces, $19.99)

TECHNIC Jango Fett (8011): EP2's Bounty Hunter stands tall! (433 pieces, $29.99)

TECHNIC Super Battle Droid (8012): Intimidating and menacing is AOTC's latest mechanized baddie. (381 pieces, $34.99)

The new LEGO Star Wars Writing System makes their debut with 6 new pens based on Classic Trilogy and AOTC characters. Inside theses cool pens are actual LEGO minifigures! The characters available are Anakin Skywalker, Jango Fett, Clonetrooper, Darth Vader, C-3P0, and R2-D2. The pens are made for LEGO by The CDM Company and retails for about $15 each.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
