Last February, we featured that LEGO has already assigned set numbers for the LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One. The film focuses on the Resistance Rebels that stole the plans for the original Death Star. Their storyline happened between the events of Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV – A New Hope.
According to German site Promobricks, some German online toy retailers have started to update their databases to include pricing and piece count for these LEGO Star WArs: Rogue One set and buildable figures. No images or names were included, but only the set numbers that were previously predicted, their piece count, pricing, weight, and other technical details. Here they are:
LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One Sets
- LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One 75152 – (?) 385 pieces; $29.99
- LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One 75153 – (?) 449 pieces; $39.99
- LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One 75154 – (?) 543 pieces; $69.99
- LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One 75155 – (?) 659 pieces; $79.99
- LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One 75156- (?) 863 pieces; $89.99
LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One Buildable Figures
- LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One 75119 – (?) 104 pieces; $24.99
- LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One 75120 – (?) 169 pieces; $24.99
- LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One 75121 – (?) 106 pieces; $24.99
Again, we don’t have any details yet what these will look like or what will they focus on. A pretty good guess can be found from the photo above from the Nuremberg Toy Fair last January where LEGO showed off some of their upcoming Star Wars themed sets. It was noted by the Star Wars fan community to be an ‘unintended’ leak on some of the major plot points of Rogue One. As you can see, Boba Fett’s famous Slave I ship is prominently seen in the background. It is kind of interesting to consider what prompted LEGO to choose that iconic Firespray-31 Class patrol and attack ship to be the centerpiece of its Rogue One sets. As such, it started a wave of speculations that the legendary bounty hunter will make his way back to the Star Wars fold.
Another highly possible candidate for a set may include the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Darth Vader. It is a reasonable conclusion, considering that Vader was hot on the trails of the Rebels who stole the plans for the first Death Star as seen in the initial scenes of Episode IV, A New Hope. He is also expected to have a “larger role than originally thought” in Rogue One. It was also hinted that we might be seeing new designs for the Empire’s TIE fighters and its mammoth AT-ATs. Knowing how Star Wars builds on the characters of its droids, a new droid will also be featured in the movie. We’re unsure yet what is the name or function of this droid, but we are told that it will be of great help for the Rebels in securing the Death Star’s blueprints and will definitely be a “scene stealer’ in the film.
We’ll continue to watch over these developments, especially that LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One will be tentatively released on September 30. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters on December 16 of this year. Stay tune for more updates only here at the Brickshow.
