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

Lego Star Wars Sets 2013 – Summer (Mid-Year)

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.


ReBrick – The Lego Sharing Community

RebrickReBrick is described as a social media platform where adult users (ie above 13 years) can share and discuss user-created LEGO content online.

So, if a Lego fan creates a video on Youtube or uploads a photo of their creation to Flickr, it can be featured on ReBrick, shared and talked about.

ReBrick is a not a place to upload images and videos too, rather a location for LEGO fans to share their wonderful models and creations with the world – through commenting, rating, bookmarking, etc.

ReBrick is a Lego owned site but is not intended for commercial use, rather as a place for fans of the medium to gather.

Lego recently released an interview with Peter Espersen, the company’s online community lead and the man in charge of ReBrick. He gives a great outline of the community, why it exists and how it can be useful to fans.
