It’s that time of year again… we have cracked open the escape pod, retrieved our astromech droid and downloaded the secret plans. The following list is merely rumours of sets that are expected to be released by LEGO in 2012. Until they are officially confirmed, it’s merely a rumour list. So read on, and let the speculation commence…

There will be a new range of ‘planets’ sets. These will each include a hollow planet, a buildable mini vehicle and a mini-figure.
9674 Naboo Starfighter and Naboo Pilot
9675 Sebulba’s Podracer and Sebulba
9676 TIE Interceptor and TIE Pilot

Notable on this new list if that the battle packs will now mix heroes and villains into one box…
9488 ARC Troopers vs. Commando Droids
9489 Endor Rebel (x2) vs. Scout Trooper & Stormtrooper
9491 Geonosian Cannon
9490 Droid Escape
9492 TIE Fighter
9493 X-Wing
3866 Battle of Hoth (LEGO Games)

Reportedly the Geonosian Cannon will include a Commander Gree mini-fig, whilst the X-Wing will include Jek Porkins as well as Luke. Presumably the ship will have changeable decoration like the last one (making it specific to either pilot).
