A new LEGO Star Wars set has been revealed just in time for the holidays. The LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader’s Castle (75251) has been revealed and will be available exclusively for pre-order via Amazon. The set features the franchise’s most iconic villain in his intimidating crib at planet Mustafar. The idea of giving the infamous Sith Lord a place of his own has been in the minds of Star Wars film writers for a long time, and it was finally realized when it was first introduced in the big screen in Rogue One.
If you recall, this is also the place where the emotional and heart-wrenching confrontation between Anakin (before he turned to Darth Vader) and Obi-Wan took place in one of the final scenes in The Revenge of the Sith. Now, LEGO Star Wars fans can finally build this castle with LEGO’s most recent offering.
Darth Vader’s Castle (75251) comes in at 1,060 pieces and features 4 levels. It also includes Vader’s famous TIE Advanced Fighter and five minifigures, which includes two versions of Darth Vader, 2 Royal Guards, and 1 Imperial Transport Pilot. The set will retail for $129.99 and will be available for pre-order via Amazon beginning October 4. Read on for the full description below followed by the set’s official images.
