LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Buildable Figures Sets!

75119 LEGO Sergeant Jyn Erso Set Box

After The Force Awakens toys and merch were handled last year as if they were national security secrets, I was expecting this year’s Rogue One toys to be handled much the same.

But SURPRISE!!! Amazon Italy has already posted the official photos for this fall’s LEGO Star Wars Rogue One sets! I posted photos and information on the LEGO Rogue One vehicles on my LEGO blog, so let’s take a look at the actual Buildable figures here…

LEGO Star Wars A-Wing Pilot Minifigure Polybag Revealed!

LEGO Star Wars A-Wing Pilot Minifigure

Ordinarily we don’t get that many LEGO Star Wars Minifigure polybag sets in a year, with the vast majority of the Star Wars-themed polybags being mini vehicles. But this year, it’s practically raining Minifigures! After the May the 4th First Order Stormtrooper last month and the First Order General this month, now another new bagged minifig has been revealed: a LEGO Star Wars A-Wing Pilot Minifigure from Rebels!

LEGO Star Wars Resistance Troop Transporter Review

LEGO Star Wars Resistance Troop Transporter 75140 Review

You would think that just months after the debut of the first true Star Wars movie in a decade, there would be tons of new ships to capture in LEGO Star Wars form. But that’s not quite the case, as The Force Awakens was mostly just good ol’ TIE Fighters and X-Wings flying around. There were a couple new ships present, though–and one of them heralded the arrival of Princess Leia Organa! But is the LEGO Star Wars Resistance Troop Transporter worth its 20% Off sale price online? Read on for my review…

LEGO Star Wars Rebel Combat Frigate 75158 Set! Ahsoka!

LEGO Star Wars Rebel Combat Frigate 75158 Box

If there’s one thing that I thought was bizarre about the LEGO Star Wars Summer 2016 sets lineup shown at New York Toy Fair 2016, it was the seeming total omission of the most hyped character of Star Wars Rebels Season 2 from this year’s lineup: the full-grown adult Ahsoka Tano. But it turns out there was a method to the madness! TLG was actually saving the Rebels Ahsoka minifigure as the proverbial carrot to sell us one of the biggest exclusive sets of the year: the LEGO Star Wars Rebel Combat Frigate 75158 (AKA Phoenix Home)!

Toy Fair: LEGO Star Wars Resistance X-Wing Fighter 75149!

2016 Toy Fair LEGO Star Wars Resistance X-Wing Fighter Summer 2016 Set

Over on my LEGO blog, Brick Toy News, I’ve been talking extensively about all of the Summer 2016 LEGO Star Wars sets ever since New York Toy Fair 2016 last month. But I’ve still got one movie-based set that I haven’t talked about yet, and I figured I should spread the love around by posting my hi-res photos preview of the LEGO Resistance X-Wing Fighter 75149 set from The Force Awakens right here on Star Wars Toy News!

LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens DE with Stormtrooper Finn!

LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens Deluxe Edition Video Game with Stormtrooper Finn Minifigure

We’ve known about the existence of a LEGO Stormtrooper Finn Minifigure since before any of the LEGO Force Awakens sets were meant to be seen. But we didn’t know how or where this exclusive FN-2187 Finn was going to be sold. As it turns out, he’s not going to be sold at all (at least, not exactly): the Stormtrooper Finn is a bonus with the PS4/XBox One LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens Deluxe Edition Video Game! If the lightning-fast sell-outs of most collector’s edition games these days is any indication, you might wanna lock in your order for this one fast…!
