After the welcomed arrival of the LEGO Star Wars 501st Legion Clone Troopers (75280) building set a few days ago, LEGO has thrown in another reveal that might interest you as well. To be precise, it’s not an entirely new reveal such as a new LEGO Star Wars set, but more of how probably things might look like in the near future. If you recall, we were given a glimpse of the LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest (75292) last February, with official images of this set following later on. And this time around, LEGO Shop@Home was updated once more with additional images of this set showing its respective box art.
The LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest comes in at 1,023 pieces and will retail for $129.99 once it is available on September 1st. Aside from the very first LEGO Star Wars set that will offer an official minifig version of The Child (aka Baby Yoda), it looks like this set will also be instrumental in unlocking a virtual version of this vehicle in the upcoming LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga video game.
Though WB Games made it clear that this video game will include all nine films in the Star Wars franchise, it is mum on whether or not it will include materials coming from several spin-off series such as The Clone Wars or even the latest The Mandalorian series. But this piece of info from the LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest box art shows that this roughneck of a ship will also be available in the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga video game.
I cannot say for sure if this will mark a new trend of integration among LEGO Star Wars sets and related video games later on. It’s also unclear if a digital brick version of the Razor Crest will be made available in the Skywalker Saga video game as a single playable vehicle, or will it be a part of a larger The Mandalorian DLC later on. With so much material that Disney is throwing into its Star Wars franchise lately including an Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off, it will be exciting to see what content will future DLCs roll out for this next big LEGO video game.
In the meantime, be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home if you wish to pre-order the LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest (75292) ahead of its September 1st release. And while you’re at it, you may also want to add to your cart and pre-order the LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian and the Child (75317) slated to be released on August 1.
