Star Wars: the sets themselves are pretty well made. I have a personal distaste for the Clone Wars series, which by now has pretty much become a transparent excuse for toy manufacturers to sell licensed products, but I may get the attack shuttle or the ATT.

City: Mad cows add a whole new dimension to Brikwars tactics.

Pirate: Historical sets are not my thing but I may pick up that ship, these look like somebody at LEGO actually invested some time in designing them.

Power Miners: Ugh, but good minifig accessories.

Eh, it depends for the POOPs. I don't mind them sometimes because even if it is like... a gigantic drill, you can still do some pretty cool stuff with it.

It does kind of look like they're jipping you with the Power Miners though, which look like each set has a POOP in it.

The colors are awesome, though.

I really like that jedi interceptor, and with the droid fighter makes it even better. I'm gonna have to get like 3 of the ATTs too.
I'm not a big city fan, but i can tell those are good sets.
and the pirates, in the words of ace,'

I want that Rock Raiders set. I could make a pretty cool mecha with that giant drill.

The new Star Wars minifigs are worse than peaches. I guess they are based of the movie, but they look nothing like it! Why do they even try...

To sell sets. Of course.

There's no such thing as pieces with only one purpose.
There's only people with crappy imaginations.

"POOP" Isn't meant to be taken literally, it's just a term for those big fat annoying pieces that are in a lot of new sets.
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

All the town and Pirate sets look awesome but the power driller sets are kinda weird I do like the minifigs though specially those blue helmets.
