There is a lot happening in a galaxy far, far away. There’s the pending releases of The Mandalorian, the highly anticipated Disney+ show and The Rise of Skywalker, the final chapter in the latest Star Wars trilogy. Throw in the 20th anniversary of the Lego-Star Wars collaboration, and you’ve got a lot of reasons for a lot of new Lego Star Wars sets, and the new Lego Stars Wars: The Rise of Skywalker sets.
We’re talking about the launch of five sets inspired by the upcoming movie and one by the new show, with a couple of classic trilogy-inspired building kits thrown in for good measure.
Let’s start with the Skywalker sets. The A-Wing Starfighter is available as a 269-piece set and comes complete with a cockpit that opens, twin spring-loaded shooters, and minifigures of both Snap Wexley and Lieutenant Connix. It’s on the smaller side, at just seven inches long, but it also has a smaller price.
Want two ships in one set? Then you want the Pasaana Speeder Chase. In the transport speeder, Rey and BB-8 try to escape from a First Order Treadspeeder with a driver and trooper. For kids who like races, it’s the best Lego Star Wars set since Anakin’s podracer.
Kylo Ren’s shuttle comes, of course, with a Kylo Ren minifigure, but that’s hardly where the reasons to love it end. The shuttle itself has rotating engines that allow kids to fold the wings for a smooth landing as seen in the films, along with spring-loaded shooters. And in addition to Kylo, there are five other bad guys, all of whom have the appropriate accessories (read: weapons).
It has spring-loaded and trigger-activated weapons, a Rise of Skywalker-specific color scheme, and five, count ’em, five included minifigures including Zorii Bliss, complete with golden helmet.
It’s the most run-down version of the legendary ship yet, but there’s still plenty for fans to love, including smuggling containers, a hyperdrive unit with repair tools, and seven minifigures including absolute essentials like Chewbacca and Lando. It’s 17 inches long and a foot wide, and it’s 1,351 pieces mean it’ll be a nice challenge for kids to assemble.
These sets would be a sizeable release on their own, but we aren’t done yet. The Mandalorian has yet to hit the internet (indeed, Disney+ hasn’t even launched yet), but we’re already fans of this set, an AT-ST Raider with poseable legs, four minifigures, and a cannibalized look that comes from the specially decorated pieces.
All in all, Star Wars Triple Force Friday looks to be a great reminder of why the Lego Star Wars collaboration has been so great and why the future looks good.
