LEGO has officially unveiled its first offering of LEGO Star Wars 2023 sets scheduled to be released next month. Calling back to its original trilogy roots, it’s great to see a LEGO rendition of a starship that is a long time coming. And after exactly 20 years since the first LEGO Star Wars TIE Bomber was introduced, a new and larger re-issue of this set is arriving in January.
There are four LEGO Star Wars 2023 sets initially introduced, one of which is a new version of the infamous starfighter of the Galactic Empire and one that fans of the Clone Wars will be glad to have. Another long overdue set, the LEGO Star Wars 501st Clone Troopers Battle Pack will definitely be a hit to fans of the series. Plus the Microfighter subtheme is getting another bump with the exciting addition of Boba Fett’s Slave 1. This is the very first time that we’re seeing the iconic starfighter rendered in brick chibi form.
Check out more details about these sets right here:
