Just when you thought that the Mandalorian has retreated from the LEGO spotlight (with a few LEGO Star Wars sets under his belt), it looks like the news on brick street points to the possibility of his return just in time for the holidays. An insider report shared by our colleagues from Promobricks points to the possibility (aka rumors) of seeing the lone warrior from Mandalore returning as part of this year’s LEGO Advent Calendar (75307) set. Additionally, another LEGO Star Wars set dedicated to one of the most enigmatic characters in the series will be included in the rumored LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Forge (75319).
According to the report, the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75307) will center on the world of The Mandalorian and will feature not just the holiday versions of the Mandalorian and the Child (Grogu), but also a selection of characters including a Stormtrooper, a Scout Trooper, a Tusken Raider, and the iconic droid bounty hunter IG-11. Some of the vehicles that we saw from the Disney+ series will also be given the LEGO microscaled treatment in this set, particularly the Mandalorian’s Razor Crest, Cobb Vanths Speeder, a TIE Fighter, an X-Wing, a blue Landspeeder, an Imperial Troop Transport, and Moff Gideon’s cruiser to name some.
On the other hand, the LEGO Star Wars The Mandalorian Forge (75319) will feature the mysterious Armorer, the spiritual leader, and repairer of the Beskar-tempered Mandalorian armor. The Mandalorian Forge will also include the Mandalorian himself, and heavy weapons specialist Paz Vizsla.
Both sets are said to be scheduled for release sometime in September just in time for the holiday shopping rush. Check out the rest of their details below.
