New LEGO Star Wars Book Features The Return of a Familiar Character

Amazon US has just listed a new LEGO Star Wars book that features an endearing and familiar character from the recent Skywalker trilogy. The LEGO Star Wars Awesome Vehicles from DK is now listed over at Amazon US and is expected to be released in April 2022.

I know it’s a kind of very long wait before we can actually get our copy, but if you’re willing to have it pre-ordered as early as now, you can get it at a selling price of $20. And like other LEGO and DK books, this one comes with a free minifigure of Poe Dameron. A closer inspection of the image above shows that this minifig version of the legendary starfighter commander is similar to that found on this year’s LEGO Star Wars Resistance X-wing Starfighter (75297), and from 2016’s set 75149. It’s a great way to get this minifigure version in case you missed getting these sets.

The LEGO Star Wars Resistance X-wing Starfighter (75297) features the same version of Poe Dameron as found in the new book offered by DK.

  1. I’d warn people before preordering that the link only has available the “Library Edition” which presumably is for schools and has no minifig:

    1. Thanks for the tip, Brian. It didn’t occur to me that such will be the case. From the looks of it, Amazon France seems to have the better end of the deal. I just hope that Amazon US will soon list the LEGO Star Wars Awesome Vehicles book with Poe Dameron minifigure. In the meantime, I have to agree that we need to better wait for the right offer.
