Just as August was drawing to a close we finally had visual confirmation on one thing: LEGO does have an upcoming brick-built figure set for the newest breakout alien creature from the Star Wars saga, the Porg from The Last Jedi. Ever since LEGO advertised the film by putting LEGO Porg statues in London last year, it was well-known. Leaks about the LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) set have been popping up in Europe since June, but it was only days ago when we saw the box design and learned the October release date. Now we have a full product description.
The official info for the LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) set was spotted by Star Wars news source Rebelscum, from a product listing on Wal-Mart. The blurb goes:
Own an unmistakable character from Star Wars: The Last Jedi with this LEGO Star Wars 75230 Porg! This faithfully detailed Star Wars toy includes intricate feather detailing, authentic colors and an opening mouth and flapping wings when you press the tail. The set also comes with a display stand with decorative fact plaque and extra porg mini build, to form the perfect centerpiece for your LEGO collection.
- Features authentic detailing, an opening mouth and flapping wings.
