Pocket-lint has received confirmation from the Lego company that seven new Lego sets will be released in tandem with the premiere of The Force Awakens later this year.
“The seven sets will be launched in time for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and feature key moments and characters, from the new film,” Stuart Miles writes.
Miles also notes that a select group at the London Toy Fair this year is being shown the Lego sets, so it’s pretty clear that Lego already has these set designs made and ready for viewing, and hopefully practical testing, as well ;). It’s exciting to see all of this start to come together!
Lego will also be releasing some more familiar-looking sets throughout the year.
“In the meantime, it has announced new sets including the temple room from the Emperor/Vader/Skywalker battle at the end of Return of the Jedi and an Imperial shuttle used in the same film will be out later this year. Other new sets include the The Naboo Royal N-1 starfighter, and a range of new Star Wars Microfighters ensuring Lego Star Wars fans should have plenty to look forward to over the next 12 months.”
Thanks to Stuart Miles and the crew at Pocket-link for this information. Look for the seven new sets later this year as The Force Awakens draws ever nearer!
