@ Ben-Jammin: Apparently they're making at least two Old Republic sets for summer 2012 (according to brickipedia) so it's maybe not too out there to expect an official Revan minifig at the least (he is still alive in the game, according to the Revan novel that came out last month) and perhaps even HK47 (who wasn't in the book but I think I saw him in a trailer for the game) it seems like they'll try to make some EU sets again and if they do well who knows what'll come out in the future.

Man, I wish there were pics. That Fury-class interceptor will be great, but lego is obviously trying to kill my wallet. With college starting for me as well later this year, it's gonna be painful...

Monster Hunter theme looks to be quite interesting. Hadn't run across that. Mix of universal monster movies, generalized 1920s-1950s aesthetics, and werewolves, mad scientists aplenty. I like the look of the grey monster car. Looks like a great callback to the last ime they did this to go with their at-the-time stop motion film geared line.

I for one will come out and say it: I don't feel like the Ninjago sets feel right. With the new helmet crest, and brightly colored vehicles, they seem very much like Lego Power Rangers. Which is probably intended, but, takes something away from them in my eyes.

I like that Lego is starting to play with a number of "pulp" or "retro" themes like the recent Alien sets, the return of an Adventurers type line, Dino, and now Monster Hunter. And yes, I realize all of them are actually just remakes of themes they have doen already. But new flair and recent expansion of tooling manage to make them seem fresh again.

Now if we could just have another Alpha Team/Agents...

Considering tht the 4 dragon combine into an ultimate dragon or whatever, I have taken to calling the dragons zords.

It's because they keep getting power-ups which is sooo Japanese. I know that for the Summer sets they'll become NRG Ninjas and from there who knows?

Actually just like in Power Rangers they're getting the new Green Ranger (I mean Ninja) who used to be a bad guy and is joining the team.

I personally am totally cool with this.

Come to think of it, Lego should do a combining, articulate Megazord for ninjago.
