Over a week ago, LEGO tipster and insider Sir von Lego of Eurobricks rocked the LEGO Star Wars boat with his tease of a soon-to-be released UCS-like set similar to BB-8, but this time, taking cue from a cute and famous creature from The Last Jedi. Fans were almost unanimous with regards to what they think the rumored set is, with the cute bird-like Porgs of the planet Ahch-To being the most likely candidate. Being a rumor for what it is, we also explored other possibilities on what this new LEGO Star Wars set could be.
However, Sir von Lego is back once more with another piece of info which seems to suggest that there might be a grain of truth for this rumor. This time, he unequivocally announced over Eurobricks forum that this next LEGO Star Wars UCS-like set is going to be, indeed, a Porg. Here’s what he has to say.
“75230 Porg will cost 69.99 EUR and will be available from October.”
Now it seems to me that Sir von Lego might have known about this possible LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) set since last week, and opted to give out bits and pieces of teasers before giving a big reveal. Having a price point of 70 Euros, Rebel Scum also speculates that this buildable Porg may actually be not just one, but a kind of Porg nest with 2 or 3 buildable Porgs to boot. If that is the case, then this is one cool nest indeed.
Of course, all of this could be a part of an elaborate Force projection that is cast upon us, and we will not really know for sure if this is real or not until such time that LEGO comes out with an official announcement. In any case, October is still far off and we can expect plenty of related news about this, so let’s see if we can have Porgs for breakfast… I mean in LEGO bricks.
