New Summer 2013 Set Rumors (LOTR, Star Wars, Castle)

A hoard of Summer 2013 set rumors have appeared all over the internet. The most exciting rumors (to me) is the announcement of more LOTR, certain Star Wars sets, and the return of Castle!
There's also some Galaxy Squad, Legends of Chima, and City. So let's dive into the rumors of 2013 LEGO!

First up is Lord of the Rings. We'll be getting 4 sets. With plenty of opportunities for LEGO to amaze the world. But will they?

  • 79005 The Wizard Battle
  • 79006 The Council of Elrond
  • 7907 Battle at the Black Gate
  • 79008 Pirate Ship Ambush
Like I said, great opportunities. I can't wait for a Saruman fig!

Next is City. We'll get Coast Guard, Cargo, and other random city sets.

Coast Guard:
  • 60011 Surfer Rescue
  • 60012 4x4 & Diving Boat
  • 60014 Coast Guard Patrol
  • 60015 Coast Guard Plane
  • 60019 Stunt Plane
  • 60020 Cargo Truck
  • 60021 Cargo Heliplane
  • 60022 Cargo Terminal
Random City:
  • 60023 City Starter Set
  • 60025 Grand Prix Truck
  • 60027 Monster Truck Transporter
Looks like City is continuing the sub-themes.

The 2007 Castle theme will be returning in 2013. Same logo, but with different box art, and maybe a different story.
  • 70400 Forest Ambush
  • 70401 Gold Getaway
  • 70402 The Gate House Raid
  • 70403 Dragon Mountain
  • 70404 King's Castle
Dragons! Yum!

Of course, Star Wars will be back again. And LEGO will be continuing the Episode VI Tatooine sets.
  • 75020 Jabba's Sail Barge
  • 75021 Republic Gunship
Those are the only two for now. I can't wait for the Sail Barge! I missed out on the 2006 version. And that set rocked!

NEWS FLASH! Galaxy Squad will not be a one-hit-wonder. We'll be getting at least two waves of sets. This is good for LEGO, but not good for the LEGO CUUSOO project Space Troopers.
  • 70705 Crater Creeper
  • CLS-89 Eradicator Mech
  • 70707 Hive Crawler
  • 70708 Galactic Titan
There are only 4. But I wouldn't be surprised if we got a Winter 2014 wave too.

To finish up, Legends of Chima will strike again! 
  • 70007 Eglor's Twin Bike
  • 70008 Gorzan's Gorilla Striker
  • 70009 Worriz Combat Lair
  • 70010 The Lion CHI Temple
More sets will most likely come up between now and the Summer.

So that's your Summer 2013 peek. We'll verify these over the next couple of months.
What are you most excited for in 2013? Leave a comment and let me know.
