From the Rumor Mill: 8 LEGO Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker Sets Arriving in October

We’re just a couple of months away before the next wave of LEGO Star Wars sets are released and thanks to some insider info compiled by LEGO detective Jedi Jac Penguin, we now have an idea on what particular LEGO Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker sets may be out there in October. It is perfectly understandable that LEGO is still keeping a tight lid on these details, with the Sith Trooper Bust (77901) revealed at Comic-Con to be the only TRS-related set ever to get screen time as of the moment. So do take note that the following rumored sets are not absolute or final, nor the descriptions that we have about them. These are speculations at its best based on the subtle hints that some of this info suggest.

  • Gun Turret (75246) – 159 pieces; $19.99 USD
  • A-Wing Starfighter (75248) – 269 pieces; $29.99 USD
  • Y-Wing Starfighter (75249) – 578 pieces; $69.99 USD
  • Speeder Bike and Landspeeder (75250) – 373 pieces; $39.99 USD
  • AT-ST (75254) – 540 pieces; $49.99 USD
  • Yoda (75255) – 1,771 pieces; $99.99 USD
  • Kylo Ren’s Starship/Shuttle (75256) – 1,005 pieces; $129.99 USD
  • Millennium Falcon (75257) – 1,350 pieces; $159.99 USD

LEGO Star Wars fans may all agree that the most interesting set among these predominantly vehicle-inspired builds is the huge Yoda (75255) set. Coming in at 1,700+ pieces, many have suggested that this might turn out to be a highly detailed and larger Yoda bust, similar to what we’ve seen LEGO did with the Sith Trooper (77901) and Darth Vader (75227) busts. The price point of the Yoda set is also kind of peculiar which is significantly lower than that of Kylo Ren’s Starship (75256) in spite of its numerous pieces. It is possible that the number of smaller pieces for the Yoda set is considerably higher than its successors to account for the fine details that that set has if it eventually turns out to be a brick-built bust. The rest of the sets in this line-up are clearly inspired by vehicles in the Star Wars franchise, which have many iterations in the past. However, since they’ve all presumably taken inspiration from the final film in Skywalker saga, then we can expect a few tweaks and surprises along the way. I’m particularly interested in seeing the minifigure characters that will be included in them, which I’m quite sure that LEGO will be very careful in revealing (tongue in cheek) without spoiling the film before it hits on theaters in December.

Again, these are speculations at its best so we will not fully know until such time they are officially revealed during Triple Force Friday promotions in October. What’s your take on these rumored LEGO Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker sets? Let me know in the comments below.
