Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Years:

2008-present

Subtheme of:

Star Wars

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is one of the main subthemes of the major Star Wars theme.

Overview

The theme was released as part of Star Wars in 2008 to coincide with the release of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film and TV series. The subtheme recreates the vehicles, characters, and locations from the franchise. In the Star Wars canon, the Clone Wars were a conflict fought between the Confederacy of Independent systems - the Separatists - and the galaxy-governing Galactic Republic for control of the galaxy.

Many of the essential vehicles and characters involved in the war have been recreated into LEGO sets. Many sets have been released in the subtheme, which continued until 2014 when the series ended. The events of the series' first two seasons occur in LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, which is the fourth LEGO Star Wars game, and the 35th LEGO Video Game to be released thus far.

Release History

7669-alt box

The first LEGO Star Wars: The Clone Wars set released under the Expanded Universe line at first.

The first sets released were 7669 Anakin's Jedi Starfighter and 7670 Hailfire Droid and Spider Droid, both as released under the Expanded Universe line, until 7669 was released with a logo of the Clone Wars on the packaging at a later date.

Before the release of the first wave, the Comic-Con Exclusive Clone Wars Set was released at the San Diego Comic-con to promote the new LEGO Star Wars: The Clone Wars sets.

Soon after the release of Anakin's Jedi Starfighter and Hailfire Droid and Spider Droid, the first official wave Clone Wars sets were released in July of 2008. This wave had an entirely new packaging from the other Star Wars sets. A long white area was above the picture on the set. On the left was the Star Wars logo rendered in blue. On the far right of the white area was a picture of a clone minifigures' helmet. 7669 Anakin's Jedi Starfighter and Hailfire Droid and Spider Droid were released again with the new packaging. 7673, 7674, 7675, 7676, 7678, 7679, 7680 and 7681 were all released as part of the first official wave.

The next wave of Clone Wars sets were released in December of 2008 in the United States of America and January of 2009 in all other countries that LEGO sells to. This wave included the sets 8014 Clone Walker Battle Pack, 8015 Assassin Droids Battle Pack, 8016 Hyena Droid Bomber, 8019 Republic Attack Shuttle, and 8018 Armored Assault Tank (AAT)

In February of 2009, two sets; 7751 Ahsoka's Starfighter and Vulture Droid and 7752 Count Dooku's Solar Sailer were released.

In March of 2009, a long-awaited set was released; 10195 Republic Dropship with AT-OT Walker.

7753-1

In July of 2009, Anakin's Y-Wing Starfighter was released. The box of this set had a new design, featuring a white area above the set, with the words "Star Wars" in red on the far left and a picture of several clone troopers from the television series on the far right.

In August of 2009, the second large wave of Clone Wars sets were released; this wave was composed of 7748 Corporate Alliance Tank Droid, 8039 Venator-class Republic Attack Cruiser, 8036 Separatist Shuttle, and 7753 Pirate Tank

In September of 2009, the online game The Quest for R2-D2 was officially released on the official LEGO Star Wars page.

During the release of several sets during the course of year, many webcomics have been posted on the LEGO Star Wars website and many small Clone Wars comics have appeared in the LEGO Magazine. Promotional sets, key chains, and magnets have been released during the courses of the years 2008, 2009, and 2010 and more will presumably be released in 2011.

Two Star Wars: The Clone Wars sets have been released for the first wave of 2010. These sets are 8085 Freeco Speeder and the 8086 Droid Tri-Fighter. The sets to be released in 2010's second wave are the 8098 Clone Turbo Tank, 8093 Plo Koon's Starfighter, 8095 General Grievous' Starfighter and 8128 Cad Bane's Speeder. This wave will have another redesign of its packaging, with a cloudy dark blue background, and Captain Rex imposed on the design.

Minifigures

No minifigures from the other Star Wars lines have been brought over to the Clone Wars line, other than the Buzz droid, meaning that all the minifigures are brand new and exclusive to this subtheme, besides a few minifigures who appear with different variations the Battle droids who share most of the pieces from the original.

The minifigures now have more of a resemblance to the animated characters in the new television series than to the live actors in the movies. Since the characters in the show have bigger eyes and sharper angles, the same has been done to the minifigures.

Since the clones could be considered more or less the most important characters in the Clone Wars, they have been given more accurate designs, this is also due to the fact that many fans have been long-awaiting new and accurate clone designs. They now have more accurate armour, helmets, and faces compared to their 2002 and 2005 counterparts.
