HUGE Star Wars Ewok Village coming soon

I'm starting to see a lot of buzz for the new Ewok Village Lego set that will be coming out in the near future. At close to 2000 pieces and 16 mostly exclusive minifigs, it's a monster. FBTB does a great preview with plenty of pictures, so give it a look. I'm pretty excited about this set for several reasons. For once thing, it looks like the designers put a lot of work into it. And the 16 minifigures is staggering. However, the one thing that strikes me about this set is how similar it looks to another Star Wars toy from my past. It bears a striking resemblance to the old playset from the Star Wars toys of the 1980s. It even has the net, the fire spit, and the ramshackle divan used to carry C3PO around. The Lego set has added a bunch of new features such as catapults, secret passages, and (best of all in my opinion) greenery. But the similarity is pretty noteworthy.
