LEGO Star Wars 2014

This is definitely to my interest, but the sad news is that I have not completed year 2013 LEGO Star Wars playset collection. As of year 2014, the playset are mostly focus on prequel trilogy (PT) and Clone Wars (CW). As such pure Original Trilogy (OT) fans might save a lot money.

If you ever like Chibi version of LEGO Star Wars machines, you might grab them, the name just not that suitable, it was not something like two opponent can use to compete with each others in some sort of game like Speedorz or Spinners. The only reason to buy are for the new minifigs, which most of these microfighters carries.

From top left: #75028 Clone Turbo Tank, #75029 AAT, #75030 Millennium Falcon, #75031 TIE Interceptor, #75032 X-Wing Fighter, #75033 Star Destroyer.

Battle Packs
Finally, they have started to focus on some battle scene in Episode III like Kashyyyk. Episode III playset was released in year 2005 and since then we hardly get any of them, maybe in a different version, like CW version. Next year battle pack is great as there is no longer two faction in one playset. Is easier to build army now and yes, more variety of Clone Troopers to collect. 

From left: #75034 Death Star Troopers, #75035Kashyyyk Troopers , #75036 Utapau Troopers

Only one battle pack are of OT, #75034 Death Star Troopers, but too bad they give Imperial Guard instead of Storm Troopers which makes Storm Trooper a very valuable minifigs at this point of time. Is cool to see new comers like Utapau Troopers and Kashyyyk Troopers. 

Well here's the picture of the leftover playset which I think most of them looks interesting to me.

From top left:
#75037 Battle on Saleucami, #75038 Jedi Interceptor, #75039 V-Wing Starfighter
#75040 General Grievous’ Wheel Bike, #75041 Vulture Droid, #75042 Droid Gunship
#75043 AT-AP, #75044 Droid Tri-Fighter, #75045 Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon
#75046 Coruscant Police Gunship

What not to be missed? I suppose they are: #75040 General Grievous’ Wheel Bike, #75043 AT-AP, and #75045 Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon. Would have gotten all the set with some extras if I have the funds. Every sets looks great to me, but reality is harsh and we can only picks those that we really like first. Let's see how's the pricing will be here in the local since LEGO is taking back distribution right from ALJ.
