“The Mandalorian” on Disney+ did something remarkable to its mother franchise, “Star Wars.” It revitalized the space opera saga at a time when the new Sequel movie trilogy was dividing the fandom. Regardless of what fans feel about Rey, Poe, Finn etc., the exploits of Mandalorian Din Djarin have been very enjoyable. His series also triggered the development of further “Star Wars” streaming spinoffs on Disney+. Among them is “The Book of Boba Fett,” which completes its first season this week. Anyway, “The Mandalorian” and its follow-ups have given LEGO more material for “Star Wars” sets, including this sneak preview.
As told by Promobricks, there’s a new LEGO Star Wars set to look out for later this year. An image of it was first sighted on social media, courtesy of Instagram user lego_flub_news. We have a build for Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine. Of course, we know Jabba’s been dead since “Return of the Jedi.” Rather, this palace build depicts the post-credits scene of “The Mandalorian” season 2’s finale. You remember how Boba Fett and his ally Fennec Shand storm the palace and kill its current boss, Bib Fortuna. Lego_flub_news apparently got the image from the instruction sheet of Dark Trooper Attack (75324), which sold early in some retailers.
Promobricks posits that this new LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian set is numbered 75326. It may officially launch in March 1 alongside Dark Trooper Attack (75324). With its seven minifigures and larger setting, the alleged SRP is around €99.99, which might remain in US$ pricing. This is yet another LEGO set news too substantiated to be relegated as rumor. Still, better to wait for LEGO to give any official details themselves.
