Earlier this month, LEGO Star Wars fans were in a frenzy once again when Amazon France listed the much talked about Rogue One sets including their official images. However, the LEGO Group was quick to shoot its laser blasters, having the listing and images removed from Amazon’s sites since it was quite premature to reveal them.
However, just a few hours ago, LEGO seems to have finally lifted the veil (aka embargo) on some of these Rogue One sets and has now been featured by USA Today in connection with Disney and Star Wars’ release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to hit theaters December 16. Since the Amazon leak early this August, we already have an idea on how these LEGO Rogue One sets look like. Now that two of these have been officially released, we can be pretty sure that the rest will be unveiled by LEGO anytime soon.
Take a look at these first two offerings from the LEGO Star Wars Rogue one line:
Imperial Assault Hovertank 75152
This set comes in 385 pieces, including the awesome blind warrior Chirrut Imwe and two Imperial Hovertank Pilots. The LEGO Star Wars Imperial Assault Hovertank is expected to retail at $29.99.
Rebel U-Wing Fighter 75155
If you have seen the Rogue Trailer already, it’s difficult not to notice one of the Resistance’s major starships. As we can surmise from the trailer video, the Rebel U-Wing Fighter will probably make an appearance on certain key plot lines. It’s kind of cool for LEGO to include this in the roster of its Star Wars sets. Set 75155 comes in a total of 659 pieces, with five minifigures to boot: the space monkey Bistan, Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, a Rebel Trooper and U-Wing Pilot. The set is expected to retail at $69.99
We’ll keep you posted once the rest of the Rogue One sets are revealed, hopefully before September 30’s Force Friday event. What do you think about these? Are you excited to have them?
