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)
