Upcoming: First Shots of New LEGO Sail Barge Surface (75020)

December 27, 2012

As I mentioned a few days ago, it looks like 2013 will be bringing an update to the original LEGO Sail Barge from 2006. I’m not sure where it came from originally, but I found this preliminary image on the ToysNBricks forums. It looks like the set will come with Jabba, Slave Leia, drink-serving R2-D2, Jedi Luke, Max Rebo and some other character that I can’t figure out (it may just be a stand-in for a figure they don’t have ready yet). It’s exciting to get a Max Rebo, although I’d really like the entire band. The ship itself doesn’t look that great to me, but of course it may not be the final design. It’s smaller than the original and seems kind of off-model. We’ll see if it undergoes any changes in the next few months.

    I’m pretty bummed about the look of the new sail barge. Something more like an updated version of the old one would have been nice. This preliminary photo looks nothing like it. The old version was so much nicer. Alas, I can’t afford an original, so this will have to do. But I’m afraid the preliminary pics are usually pretty spot on to the final model with these things. Especially as it has a street date of June, this is likely what we will get. Such a shame after the skiff, palace, and rancor pit having been so nice! And your right about the Rebo band. That should have been a separate mini kit release featuring the whole group. And this should have included Ephant Mon or Hermi Odle. IMHO, of course…….:)
