How is this... possible?



This Venator - is this the Brickmaster version, or a larger version? I'm about 1/3 done with the Primus/Roguebantha version, so I'd love to know what this thing will be.

I am right now at this very minute lifting you up by the neck, Vader style (like he did to Captain Antilles at the beginning of Ep IV).

I believe and respect the "Respect the Brick" policy...

...but if those plans weren't stolen we never could have blown up the Death Star.

True, but the reason the plans were stolen in the first place is that the guy who was charged with setting up the library on the Death Star sent a back up of all of his files to a less secure Imperial outpost. Source: Death Star hardcover released earlier this year.

It seemed legitimate enough, if a rep answering questions was fine sharing this info then I say it's fair game.

On the sets - only thing I can really say is woo OT playsets!

Exactly, except my wife hates hearing that because it means less money for food.

Given the last two capital ships have been System-scale, I'm thinking (and hoping!) the Venator will be the same.

And yay Endor! Browns and greens galore.

Like many others, I already knew about most of these sets. But to have them out in the open is great. However, I had no idea about the 7749 Echo Base (awesome chance of Tauntauns), 8039 Venator-class Republic Attack Cruiser, or the 8038 Endor Battle Playset Very Happy .

Thanks for the confirmed list. Smile I had heard rumors of the Venator, but it's great to hear it confirmed. Most definantly it will be a minifigure playset based on the Clone Wars series.

AAT? Awesome-nocity! I hope it retains its tan color, like the original, but beefed up. Kinda how the MTT was.

Endor? Kinda cool...we'll see.

Seems like now we all know how to post leaked info and make it seem genuine and allowed ... all we have to say is "a lego rep told me".

Seems like the policing of the RTB is slacking. Perhaps the mod team are too busy fannying around with their in-joke vs Don?! Razz Wink

OK, I'm ready to be laughed at and mocked, but I'm drawing a blank on the movies. Which movie contained Echo Base, and which system was it located in?

here is why i think some of these are legit-

now some of these have been confirmed already- i dont want to say to much i dont want to get in trouble but the rest is just speculation-

'09 as you all know is the 10th anniversary of the license and we have all been requesting certain sets for the last decade- an endor bunker...a DECENT hoth set with Wampa and Taun Tauns and certain figs like admiral ackbar which we voted on a couple months back

Now if TLC was smart, which they are, i hope they either split there sets evenly between Clone wars and OT (anniversary) sets of maybe we could be lucky enough to just get double the amount of sets this year- say for instance 10-12 sets in august compared to the usual 5-6, and another 10 or so in December for just this year

who knows
