2014 LEGO Star Wars Sets Revealed

With November flying by, more and more 2014 sets are popping up. This time, it's Star Wars that makes a showing. A whopping 19 sets have been announced, though we only have pictures of 11 of them.
Unfortunately, the quality of the sets seems to be going down. The minifigures only get better, but the sets definitely aren't worth the price asked for them.
Grab a bag of chips, and have fun skimming through these.

The first set, seen above, is 75034 Death Star Troopers. Probable price point: $12.99. My question is, why is LEGO lowering the value of the Imperial Guards? Who needs an army of them anyway?

Check out the rest below!

 750345 Kashyyyk Troopers. Probable price point: $12.99. Looks like LEGO is revisiting the Kashyyyk sets. Something they haven't done thoroughly since 2006. You gotta love those camo scout troopers.

 75036 Utapau Troopers.  Probable price point: $12.99. Really not sure about the price on this one. could be $15.
This is where the horrible build of the sets comes in. In the first two it's not as apparent, but it really shows here. If it weren't for the Airborn troopers, this set would be a fantastic flop!

 75037 Battle on Saleucami. Probable price point: $19.99. Despite the cool new plant pieces, the plants/rocks are terribly pathetic. But the addition of a BARC Trooper and some droids should make this one popular.

75038 Jedi Interceptor. Probable price point: $24.99. In case you haven't noticed, this wave is almost entirely composed of Episode III sets. It's about time.
 75039 V-Wing Starfighter. Probable price point: $24.99. Every so often LEGO releases a V-Wing. The most recent one I believe, was 7915 Imperial V-Wing Starfighter.

 75040 General Grievous Wheel Bike. Probable price point: $24.99. I still own the first version of this set. It came with Grievous on the Wheel Bike and Obi-wan Kenobi on Boga. The price of that one was $20. So for the price of this one to be equal or more, would be rather depressing.

 75041 Vulture Droid. Probable price point: $29.99. Now it's time to talk about the new missiles. I don't know about you, but I'm really not digging them. They add a Play-Mobil look to the set, and I don't like it. At least LEGO hasn't really changed their Buzz Droid in 7 years.

75042 Droid Gunship. Probable price point: $49.99. Wow! A realistic looking Wookie! This set is one of the tops for that reason only.

 75043 AT-AP. Probable price point: $59.99. Commander Gree and Tarfful! Can this set get any better? Definitely the best set in this wave so far.

 75045 Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon. Probable price point: $39.99. Loving the Wolfpack troopers. That's about it.

Other sets that don't have pictures yet:
75044 Droid Tri-Fighter
75046 Coruscant Police Gunship

And for Planet sets:
75028 Clone Turbo Tank with 501st Clone
75029 AAT with Battle Droid
75030 Millenium Falcon with Han Solo
75031 Tie Intercepter with Tie Pilot
75032 X-Wing Fighter with Pilot
75033 Star Destroyer with Imperial Officer

And that's it! Something good to look forward to next year! Leave a comment below and tell me your thoughts on these sets.
