Here are images of the upcoming Lego Star Wars 2014 sets. In total, there are 19 new sets so far. I think they all look great, but many of the sets are remakes, unfortunately. The new sets are the ones from the Microfighters series (75028 – 75033), the battle packs (75034, 75035, 75036), the 75045 Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon, and the 75046 Coruscant Police Gunship. In several of the sets, there is also a new blaster for minifigures to use. From what I gather, you place a normal, 1×1 stud on the front and press a trigger (that becomes raised when you attach the stud) on the top of the blaster to fire it. They kind of look like flashlights to me, so I’m not sure how I feel about them. In the larger sets, there are new “spring-loaded shooters.” They appear to be smaller, skinnier, brightly-colored missiles. Those will contrast badly with some of these sets…
The year of 2014 continues the trend that began in 2012; the sets of the new year will focus primarily on the third film, Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The box art looks sharp and quite frankly, very cool, though it seems somewhat more “cartoony” than the 2012 Darth Maul and 2013 Yoda box art. The colors also remind me a bit of the Superheroes line of sets – gold lettering, blue background pattern. Perhaps having Obi-Wan or Anakin would have been more appropriate, given the film (and saving Vader for Episode V). In any case, check out the set images below! (Click on images for a larger view.)

From what I understand, all of these sets will be released as the first wave for 2014. We’ll update you all on changes and new information/images! Personally, I’m looking forward to the battle packs, the AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon and the Coruscant Police Gunship. What upcoming sets have you excited for the new year?
