After the official reveal of the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga video game a couple of days ago, LEGO has finally given us a glimpse of the minifig version of their newest droid in town. We’re still 6 months away from the release of the last film installment in the 9-part Star Wars Skywalker saga, but this doesn’t stop LEGO from showing us the cutest droid that will follow the likes of BB-8 and R2-D2. From the way it seems, it definitely shows that the new LEGO Star Wars D-0 will be taking brick fans by storm.
D-0 made his first appearance alongside BB-8 in the teaser trailer for Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker released last April. He then made his first live, public appearance at this year’s Star Wars Celebration held in Chicago. We can very much expect that D-0 will be included in the next wave of LEGO Star Wars tie-in sets later on. Check out the following video where this latest droid is introduced to throngs of Star Wars fans.
Similar to BB-8, this LEGO version of D-0 also comes in as a single-mold minifigure. Though I feel that this video game version of D-0 is closer to his intended LEGO form, the actual minifig may have slight variations, the same way BB-8 appears in many LEGO Star Wars sets. Needless to say, I’m excited to see how this new droid will fare once additional info comes out about the LEGO Star Wars Rise of Skywalker sets sometime in August or September.
For the meantime, I would like to share this excellent LEGO Star Wars D-0 MOC created by hachiroku24. He was even kind enough to share at his YouTube channel how he built this awesome creation, including the LEGO pieces that he used. Check out his video below.
