There has been a handful of LEGO reveals earlier this week, and one of which is something that has been kept under wraps probably because it was intended to be an event-exclusive set. The LEGO Star Wars Nebulon-B Frigate (77904) has been revealed to the public courtesy of LEGO’s Customer Service Portal.
To be more exact, the building instructions for the LEGO Star Wars Nebulon-B Frigate were uploaded via the said customer service portal showing us what to expect from the key features of this set. Coming in at 459 pieces, this set was intended to be a San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2020 exclusive. But due to the program cancellations brought about by this pandemic, LEGO will most likely offer this set over its online shopping portal, and most likely within a limited time only. The box art itself sports the SDCC 2020 logo, including the 40th-anniversary emblem of the Empire Strikes Back film as you can see below. Image courtesy of The Brick Fan.
The LEGO Star Wars Nebulon-B Frigate set is somewhat a long time coming. Many LEGO SW fans were already raring to see this set in actual brick form and were finally shown a ray of light during the LEGO Ideas Fan Vote earlier this year. However, it turned out that the impressive Rebel-reformed Imperial Starship was outnumbered in votes, with the majority of fans voting for a brick version of the Republic Gunship as the next LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series set. This first and only official version of the Nebulon-B Frigate may not be on a similar scale to that of the standard LEGO Star Wars UCS set, nor that of the Master Builder Series, but it is still nice to have on display given its elegant and sleek design, mounted on its own commemorative stand.
Given that we already have its corresponding parts inventory, I guess its just a matter of time before we can build one of our own. There seems to be no particular part that is exclusive to this set so you might want to take a look at your own LEGO collection and try to build one of your own. The pieces are also made up of mostly dark and medium stone gray colors, so it something that is also pretty common in most LEGO sets. Check out the inventory below and see if you have the needed parts to build the LEGO Star Wars Nebulon-B Frigate.
There is no word yet on when this set will be listed over at LEGO Shop@Home and for how much. I will update this article once the set goes live, so be sure to check back with us anytime soon.
