The LEGO Star Wars Yavin IV base will be available later in this year

A potentially dubious rumour suggests this year’s mooted LEGO Star WarsMaster Builder Series sets could have a massive representation of the Rebel base from Yavin IV.

User of Instagram Legohio – who’s also posted rumours of the first LEGO Star Wars mini-doll, a Book of Boba Fett Rancor set and a drum-lacquered C-3PO minifigure – claims that 75331 won’t be a Geonosian Arena, Ewok Village or Death Star, but our first-ever Yavin IV base at minifigure scale.

Legohio claims that the set will include half the Rebel base, in modular dollhouse-style, and three levels. The bottommost module will apparently consist of the hangar – complete with a midi-scale Millennium Falcon, and enough room to park ‘most play-scale rebel ships’ – while the middle and top modules are said to include the control room and ceremony room respectively.

It would be built in accordance with previous Master Builder Series sets 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City 75290 Mos Eisley CantinaThe price is $529.99 more than the original. Word of that particular combination of product number and price has been doing the rounds for a while, but this is the first time we’ve heard any suggestion of what the set could be.

It’s one we’re especially wary of, however, given legohio’s so-far-unproven track record – and the reaction of more reliable sources of rumours, including Legofulcrum, who’s commented on legohio’s original Instagram post with a blue cap emoji.

A Yavin IV base seems like an interesting contender for the Master Builder Series set. LEGO Star Wars team’s fondness for the original trilogy.

We also know that it’s a location the designers have considered before, thanks to an image of a prototype playset (above) that appeared in the LEGO Star WarsVisual Dictionary 2009. While that model is much smaller than a $530 MBS set would undoubtedly be, it’s proof positive that the iconic A New Hope planet isn’t out of the question for a future set.

And for the price point currently attached to 75331, it’s not hard to imagine that such a set would be big enough to hold the likes of 75301 Luke Skywalker’s X-wing Fighter in its hangar. An midi scale Millennium Falcon makes sense as well, following precedents set by Cloud Car and Slave I for vehicles in MBS sets. 75229 Betrayal in Cloud CityThe speeders are in 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina.

If any or all of that does come to pass, however, it feels almost as likely to be sheer coincidence at this stage – at least until any of legohio’s other claims are proven correct.
