It seems that more LEGO Star Wars Busts are on its way in 2020 following the reveal of the Darth Vader (75227) and Sith Trooper (77901) busts a few months ago – at least, that’s what prevailing speculations seems to suggest.
The first hint of these rumors stemmed from what LEGO fan news site Stone Wars has stumbled upon regarding several upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets slated to be released next year. And with a bit of deduction based on what is currently known, and we have a theory that likely holds water. As many of you are familiar with, LEGO and Lucasfilms both have a propensity to use codenames and temporary placeholders to any of its new projects. The Last Jedi, for example, was hidden under the codename Space Bear as Rebelscum succinctly states. LEGO as it seems also follows the same secretive trend to fend away ultra zealous truth seekers.
But sometimes the pieces of info that you need may just be hiding in plain sight. And according to Stone Wars, two particular upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets may be pointing out to 2 additional character busts under the codenames New Adult White (75276) and New Adult Green (75277). Given that their piece count which are 647 and 625 pieces respectively, there are other trails of evidence here that suggest that these are not created with play features in mind. It’s expressed targeted demographic are older LEGO builders and fans (hence the 16+ label) that may want these sets for display and aesthetic purposes.
The New Adult White building set together with its corresponding piece count may be recognizable to most of you by now as referring to a possible Stormtrooper Bust (75276), while the New Adult Green may allude to a Boba Fett Bust (75277). With both sets coming in at 600+ pieces, its also most likely that they could be larger than the first LEGO Star Wars busts introduced this year, with the Darth Vader and Sith Trooper busts consisting between 300 to 400+ pieces.
As plausible as this theory may seem, it still stands to reason that these are simply speculative until such time that LEGO officially lifts the veil from these sets. For the meantime, you might be interested to know that Build Better Bricks are offering high-quality building instructions to create your own custom LEGO Star Wars busts based on the characters of Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Darth Maul and a Stormtrooper. I wrote a short review about them a couple of years ago so you may want to check it out as well.
