I have to say, the LEGO Star Wars line has been hitting some high notes with some of its set releases being buildable figures and statues. Articulated, ultrabuild figures of recent years may have had some tough luck in appealing to wider LEGO Star Wars fans, but brick-built figures such as the ‘highly polarizing’ LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) may seem to have gained some following regardless of our relative displeasure towards it. Somehow related to this, we now have a rumor (first we covered in some time!) about their being a new LEGO Star Wars Yoda statue in the works, depicting the old, wise Jedi Master. This would make it an update on an already-released LEGO Yoda set from 2002 – a LEGO Star Wars UCS Yoda (7194) no less – but more evolved in design.
By evolved, we mean it’s been rumored that the new LEGO Star Wars Yoda statue will be similar in style to the aforementioned LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230). There will likely be some movable parts for this new brick iteration of Yoda, maybe an articulated arm that could hold either a cane or a lightsaber.
But that’s merely speculation right now. And of course, all LEGO-related rumors we discuss here on The Brick Show will be considered as only rumors, until LEGO itself makes an official statement to confirm or debunk these. The LEGO Star Wars Yoda statue is said to release in late 2019, perhaps just in time with the planned tie-ins for Disney’s epic conclusion on the Skywalker Saga with Star Wars: Episode IX.
