Remember back in the early days of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in UK cinemas, when brick-built statues of those adorable Porg creatures popped up in the streets of London? Horrendous as they may seem for some, most LEGO Star Wars fans however, simply loved the idea of having a LEGO Porg set that they can bring home with them. We are also aware that the LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) is really going to happen when back in June, a Dutch online retailer listed the set in their database. And this time around, we finally have a glimpse of their official images.
The LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) involves perhaps one of the most breakout popular alien creatures ever conceived in the latest Star Wars franchise. It’s amazing how many times before we managed to get tangible documentary proof of announced but unrevealed LEGO sets from some far-off sources. This time, the one that showed photos of the original box for LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) for everybody’s consideration, was discovered by Promobricks at an online toy retailer in the Ukraine.
There’s also an image of the completed Porg (75230) model, which also gets a standing plaque similar to the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collectors’ Series sets. The most fascinating features of the model are its articulated flippers, a mouth mechanism to open and shut that meme-worthy mouth, and flipping wings. The back of this avian model is impressively detailed as well.
And that’s about it. The Ukrainian retailer hasn’t put their price for the LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230), where elsewhere it’s listed as €80/$95, before images were even shown. But now we know what the Porg model looks like, so it’s up to LEGO Star Wars fans if they’re up to getting this set. It does look purposely hilarious.
