More Toy Fair News: New LEGO Star Wars Summer 2019 Sets Announced

LEGO Star Wars Summer 2019 Sets

Note: The image above is from 2009’s LEGO Star Wars The Battle of Endor (8038) set. Following the reveal of the summer 2019 LEGO City and LEGO Technic sets, LEGO has also announced the release of additional LEGO Star Wars Summer 2019 sets, following the announcement of its 20th year LEGO Star Wars commemorative sets. There will be two new series to watch out for, including a subtheme dedicated to the new animated series, Star Wars Resistance. We’re still following the events as covered by LEGO fan correspondent Zusammengebaut at the on-going Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany. Here’s what was revealed so far.

LEGO Star Wars Resistance

  • Major Vanreg’s TIE fighter (75240)
  • Black Ace TIE-Interceptor (75242)
  • Duel on Starkiller Base (75236)

LEGO Star Wars Action Battle

  • Endor Assault (75238)
  • Hoth Generator (75239)
  • Echo Base (75241)

2019 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75245)

Star Wars D2C set (75252)

Rumors of a LEGO Star Wars Resistance subtheme were making their rounds recently across LEGO fan forums, and it is now confirmed that this such the case. It is also interesting to note that after 6 years since the last time we saw them in the D2C set LEGO Star Wars Ewok Village (10236) and 2015’s LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75097), we get to see the Ewoks once again in the Endor Assault (75238).  I’m not really sure what’s the deal with the Action Battle series, but judging on the way the sets are presented around this subtheme, it looks like it’s a collection of sets that you can bring together and connect. This first offering of LEGO Star Wars Action Battle sets kind of remind me of the not so well received Assault on Hoth (75098) set from 2016. I do hope LEGO is not tempting fans to recreate this failed D2C set once again in piecemeal format.

Lastly, this wave of new LEGO Star Wars summer 2019 sets will also include a tightly guarded D2C set simply referred to as set 75252. We have no hint whatsoever on what this set could be, but I do wish this is not another rehashed set of sorts. We’ll know soon enough.
