Star Wars Lego Sets and Minifigs for 2012

Updated on January 10, 2015

New Items Being Released Now

This lens is dedicated to the new Star Wars Lego sets and Minifigs that were released in early 2012. As seen in the package image shown, all 2012 Star Wars Lego sets will be indicated by the presence of Darth Maul in the upper right hand of the packaging. He was the predominant villain of Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. There are several sets that feature his minifig, but you will have to check my other Star Wars Lego pages to see those (for now at least ... but more about that later). The Star Wars franchise continues to be one of the top sellers for Lego as they are highly collectible for play and display. So, please read on as the Lego Star Wars saga continues throughout 2012.

Happy New Year!!!

January New Releases are Here

Although they won't ship until January 30, 2012, the latest new Lego Star Wars items are available for pre-orders on January 2. So, you can check them all out here and make sure you are one of the first ones to get them.
