WARNING! POTENTIAL ‘THE RISE OF SKYWALKER’ SPOILERS! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
The rumours have begun… with a distinct lack of updates on Star Wars Lego for a while (other than the upcoming game) I’ve been speculating on what we will be getting come October in terms of sets from ‘ The Rise of Skywalker’.
Well, a rumoured list of those sets has hit the internet, courtesy of BRICK FANATICS, and they are as follows.
An interesting bunch of sets. My interest lies around the A-Wing, Speeder Bike and Landspeeder (possibly seen in the trailer) and Y-Wing. I’m unsure about the Gun Turret and will have to see if it comes with any decent mini-figs.
I’m pretty uninterested in the AT-ST even though it is in brown. If it’s an Imperial version then I’m happy to skip it as I already have the ‘Rogue One’ set and if it’s the First Order version then I may get it at some point, but I still have a abutted taste in my mouth about the overpriced and underwhelming ‘First Order AT-ST’ set from ‘The Last Jedi’.
I am intrigued by ‘Kylo Ren’s Starship’ and I really hope it’s not an updated version of the ‘Command Shuttle’ we got with ‘The Force Awakens’. There have been rumours of him having a new ship so we’ll see.
And then we have the ‘Millennium Falcon’, which, if this is true, will be the third (not including the UCS version) iteration of this ship since 2015. I have both the ‘The Force Awakens’ and ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ versions but why bring it out again, unless there have been some drastic changes to the ship then it just feels pointless to rehash the not-so-old ground, unless this is to do with the end of ‘The Skywalker Saga’. I will definitely have to see what this set is like before I even consider buying it, because I think a third Falcon would be a bit excessive.
I am very interested in seeing the new Y-Wing, I love the version we got with ‘Rogue One’ and I’m really intrigued to see how the upgraded Sequel Trilogy version looks an I’m really pleased that we are getting a Sequel Trilogy A-Wong, I was gutted we didn’t get one for ‘The Last Jedi’.
Whilst this is all rumours so far, I think it could be an interesting group of sets, hopefully we will start to get some confirmation and images in the next couple of months, but for now, consider my interest piqued.
