LEGO Duel on Geonosis 75017 | Set Guide & Review

LEGO Duel on Geonosis 75017 SetLEGO Duel on Geonosis 75017 is part of the Summer Wave of Lego Star Wars Sets 2013. Unlike most other sets in this wave, Duel on Geonosis is largely original, with only certain components having been released in a previous set.

The set recreates an action sequence from the movie Star Wars Episode Two: Attack Of The Clones where Separatist leader (and former Jedi) Count Dooku and his former Master, Yoda are fighting on Geonosis. Both characters appear in minifigure form in the set and the setting is also recreated. Other highlights of the set include a Poggle The Lesser figure (leader of the Geonosians), Count Dooku’s Solar Sailor Pilot as well as his speeder bike and a printed tile featuring the Death Star plans.

Given that all minifigures are unique to this set and it also includes the printed Death Star piece, this is an attractive set for collectors. For kids, the playability is high too, with the four minifigures, one vehicle and a playset with a number of action features so kids who are familiar with the movies or the characters (from the Clone wars TV Series) will like LEGO Duel on Geonosis.

Note: There are a number of LEGO sets coming out in this Summer 2013 wave that are based on Star Wars Attack Of the Clones, and this set would go particularly well with the LEGO 2013 Republic Gunship, as it is also based on this moment in the movie and contains a number of complementary minifigures.

Lego Star Wars Sets 2013 | Mid Year Summer

Lego Star Wars Sets 2013 Mid Year SummerThe mid-year Lego Star Wars Sets 2013 are simply fantastic, a wave of must have models for any Lego fan who just happens to be a fan of Star Wars as well – I believe there are a few of us around…

I am completely objective (not) when I say I haven’t been this excited about a wave of set releases, or more afraid for my savings, than I am about the range of sets becoming available in the middle of 2013.

Lego does have a tendency to save all their big releases for the middle of the year, the US Summer, and I am guessing this has to do with making sure there is enough product for anyone who wants it in the lead up to Christmas. This year there are no less than four big Star Wars Lego sets being released in the mid-year wave, three of which are remakes of highly popular sets.

Let’s take a closer look

As you can see there are a number of large sets 🙂

Given each set will retail for around $100 US or $150- $200 AUS, if you have been eagerly awaiting remakes of the AT-TE, Republic Gunship or Jabba’s Sail Barge, you are in for an expensive few months! Hopefully, like most Star Wars sets, these will stick around for at least a year and some sales will make them more attainable.

We will be previewing each of the new Lego Star Wars Sets 2013 Mid Year Summer sets over the next week or so, giving each model it’s time to shine in the sun. Make sure you sign up for the newsletter to keep up to date with our latest news.
