We now have official images pouring in from the LEGO Star Wars front, courtesy of Swiss online toy retailer, World of Games. Slated for 2018, these handful of images reveals additional sets from The Last Jedi, Microfighters, Ultrabuilds and other Star Wars subthemes, and are expected to be on store shelves towards the end of this year. A few days ago, a Russian online store managed to post set descriptions for some of these sets, but later on removed them. Thanks to Brickfinder, we managed to retain some of these descriptions and translated them roughly from Russian. I added these descriptions to some of these sets whenever possible.
First off, we have the latest Microfighters to watch out for in 2018. I find it amusing to see how the latest 7541-piece set, UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) is immediately followed by a microfighter, or a microscaled version of itself (75193). We also have our first look at the official name and LEGO version of the Resistance Ski Speeder, which we saw in the first TLJ trailer as it heads on to battle the towering AT-M6 or Gorilla Walkers of the First Order. LEGO also opted to create a microscaled version of Kylo Ren’s sleek TIE Silencer as it goes for a space dog fight with the Resistance’s A-Wing.

First Order TIE Fighter Microfighter (75194)
Ski Speeder vs. First Order Walker Microfighters (75195)
Defeat the First Order’s Storm Walker with the help of a super-speeder equipped with skis! Plant the pilot of the resistance spider and the First Order troopers in their cabins, ready the guns and get set for an exciting adventure. The set also includes a small shelter with additional weapons and ammunition for even more exciting battles!
A-Wing vs. TIE Silencer Microfighters (75196)
Play out the space battle between the Kyle Ren TIE Fighter and the A-Wing Fighter of the Resistance! Plant the minifigures in the cabins of their ships, load rockets on board and start the fight. The set also includes a mini-station for repairing ships. Good luck, warrior!
We can also expect two LEGO Star Wars Battle Pack sets for 2018: one referencing to the upcoming sequel, Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, while the other is a throwback to the original Star Wars film, Episode IV – A New Hope.
First Order Specialists Battle Pack (75197)
Send reinforcements – it’s the combat set of First Order specialists! Let the First Order gunner take his place, then ready the gun and aim. Guard the weapons with the tough stormtroopers of the First Order, armed with laser axes. Can you defeat the Resistance? All in your hands!
Tatooine Battle Pack (75198)
Other than a call back to the animated series The Clone Wars, we also have two additional LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi sets that may prove to be a little bit spoilery for some. We now have official LEGO sets to what we have previously predicted under TLJ: Rey’s Training in the Island of Ahch-To, and the Resistance Skimmer or Ski Speeder on the planet Crait. For most of us, the best part of these sets are simply having those cute and adorable Porgs, which were only previously available on the still elusive UCS Millennium Falcon 75192. We also have our very first minifigure of old man Luke Skywalker which LEGO has been teasing on for quite some time in its promotional ads and magazines.
General Grievous’ Combat Speeder (75199)
Ahch-To Island Training (75200)
Go along with Rey in search of a hut on the mountainside on one of the islands of the planet Ahch-To! Teach her to use a lightsaber and try to destroy a stone boulder. Sit back by the fire and learn more about the Jedi Order, and then spend the night in order to sleep well before the new training day.
Defense of Crait (75202)
Prepare the Ski Speeder to battle for the Resistance base against the forces of the First Order! Send the soldier to the laser cannon and other tools installed in the trench, and carefully monitor the movements of the enemy from the command tower. Set the guns on the Ski Speeders and check the serviceability of the engine. When the enemy approaches the base, put Poe in the cockpit and send him to perform another difficult mission. Fight for victory to the last, brave Resistance soldiers!
Finally, we see that LEGO’s buildable figures are still going strong with the addition of two, new Star Wars ultrabuilds. We have a Technic-built version of the most iconic bounty hunter across the galaxy, and newer, more buff version of Darth Vader. Though we already have a previous, ultrabuild version of the famed Lord of the Sith, this latest rendition is better in many ways, especially the inclusion of a removable helmet that reveals the person, the Skywalker, underneath.
