The first episode of the Disney+ series, The Bad Batch has already streamed and the reviews are all over the top with the show receiving an average score of 96% over at Rotten Tomatoes, and 9.2 at IMDB. Needless to say, it looks like a very good start for Disney, and for LEGO as well since rumors have it that a LEGO Star Wars: The Bad Batch set is most likely on its way.
German online LEGO retailer JB Spielwaren shared via Instagram an upcoming promotional that may saw the reveal of the said tie-in. Now to be fair, the said Instagram post did not mention a specific LEGO set to be revealed. But another related incident has shown a strong possibility of such kind of a LEGO set reveal. An advertisement released by the German LEGO online store has inadvertently unveiled the LEGO Star Wars Bad Batch Shuttle (75314) set. The image quality itself is not ideal but enough to give us an idea of what to expect from this new tie-in set.
The German advert shows us the Bad Batch Shuttle (75314) design features, including two speeders and a collection of unique and colorful designs of the elite team’s minifigure counterparts: Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo.
There is no other information regarding this set except for the possibility that it will be around the 99.99 Euro price point. And since JB Spielwaren is about to make a reveal anytime soon, we might have an opportunity of knowing more about this set in the next couple of days.
The Star Wars: The Bad Batch is a direct sequel to the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series and follows the story of the Clone Force 99 – an elite team of clone troopers with genetic mutations that enable them to take on daring mercenary missions. The show is currently streaming over at Disney+ with new episodes being released on a weekly schedule.
