For #7748 Corporate Alliance Tank Droid there will be two Clone Troopers with jetpack and two battle droid. A launching platform for you to catapult you Clone Trooper will be provided. And the Tank Droid will fire the whole cannon out of it. The set seems to have a lot more pieces than #7749 Echo Base for the same price but I think is the thread that make it has more pieces.

For #7749 Echo Base, as usual, there will be flick fire with the turret and place for you to keep the rebel. What's new inside is the goggle of the rebel and Taun Taun. But anyway, it was a great set to build your Hoth army.

As for Separatist Shuttle, you can see that you will get a pilot droid, new minifg like Nute Gunray. The space inside the shuttle is quite limited and it seems like only can fit Nute Gunray. On the other hand, #8037 Anakin's Y-wing Starfighter will have a Clone Wars R2-D2 unit, that's something new but not much function in the set.

#8038 The Battle of Endor will have a lot people wanting it, as there are so many minifigs in it including the Scout Trooper which took their rest for around 10 years already and the new Death Star Trooper. Fortunately, LEGO has redesign the torso of the rebel, making them looks better. Well, this set definitely gonna give you a number of new minifigs.

Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser seems to include us a Clone Pilot instead of normal Clone Trooper. Besides that, there is this new scary Palpatine face and a new mold for Senate Commando headgear. Guess there is a improvement in this set, especially the minifig.

What is surprising is that #10195 Republic Dropship with AT-OT Walker will be release in the near future and I mean it, which is March 3oth according to sources. This ship contains 8 minifigs- 2 Clone Pilot, 6 Clone Trooper, but still is insuffiecient and way over-priced which is 250USD. By the way, it can carry AT-TE.
