LEGO is releasing some amazing products this summer. There’s something for every galaxy.
Summer is my favorite season to watch Star Wars sets. Winter sees the smaller post-holiday releases, while Force Friday in the fall coincides with LucasFilm’s latest project.
LEGO is free to follow its individual paths and not have to launch any big-ticket products. As the most recent leaks suggest, this list appears to have been confirmed for 2021.
The advent calendar’s favorite holiday tradition is to start with the list. There really isn’t much to say here, but last year’s calendar was a step forward with new builds and exclusive Christmas figures. With that out of the way, let’s dive into the interesting information.
LEGO is leveraging The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars to make a profit.
Vault and Mandalore Throne come first in the general sets. LEGO has been releasing these battle vignettes for many years. The Clone Wars is trending. The $20 desk display includes Ahsoka and Darth Maul.
There will also be a brand new Mandalorian Fighter, along with the debuts of Gar and Saxon as Bo-Katan. And let’s not forget about the Bad Batch, whose shuttle will be released along with a full crew of figures to provide a fresh spin on a familiar silhouette.
Made popular by The Mandalorian, next is the Imperial Troop Transport. It includes two new mortar troopers as well as stormtroopers. The set should please fans. Alongside that will be Moff Gideon’s cruiser for a steep $160. There are strong figures, as well as mini TIE Fighters. But it might be worthwhile. And it’s about time Moff Gideon comes to LEGO form.
Both new sets and the originals will be available.
The second version of Slave One may be the most interesting. Rather than being fittingly from The Mandalorian, this version centers around The Empire Strikes Back, evident in the inclusion of Han Solo. Fennec Shand will still be part of the set, but it would have made Boba Fett’s appearance more authentic. Paired with that will be a new model, Darth Vader’s meditation chamber.
LEGO’s activities will be continued on May 4. TrendYou can make your own R2-D2 characters. It’s been done before, but designers have the ability to re-imagine a model that clearly needs it.
Which other UCS sets can LEGO create?
After winning the fan vote, LEGO’s rendition of the Republic Gunship will release for $350. This will be the UCS first Clone Wars-era model and it must be fairly large.
Then there’s the lingering “question mark”It contains over 6,000 pieces. Many believe that it is a Death Star. You could find tens or thousands of components. A AT-AT could also be an option. It would however be very surprising considering this model was first released within the last year.
Either way, LEGO has some big plans in 2021, and that’s not even mentioning a new game as well. What set are you most missing? Leave a comment below
