Images of a brand new Star Wars sets have surfaced this week. We can be expecting an updated version of the Darth Maul’s Sith Infiltrator on the horizon. Seems to me that Lego is getting lazy and just throwing re-makes at us. A bit disappointing. I will say that this is the most detailed version of the Infiltrator we have gotten though.
This is the 5th version of this set that Lego has released, and hopefully the last (at least in this decade). The first was released in 1999 when the Phantom Menace was coming out. The second was a mini version released in 2004, another came in 2007, and again we saw the set on shelves in 2011. I own the one from 2011 and am more than happy with it. I also think the design of the 2011 version is better looking than the design of this version. The minifigures are what will seal the deal for most people. The new Darth Maul looks absolutely amazing! Not to mention the popular Watto fig.
No word on the price or piece count. But for a fair price, I think Lego can pull off this re-make. Yes it’s getting highly repetitive and some people are annoyed, but this is a cool set overall. If we hadn’t gotten versions in the past, Star Wars fans would be going insane wanting this. 🙂 That’s all for now. Until the next Star Wars post, I bid you farewell. And remember, always “use the force, Luke”.
