Since the Second LEGO Ideas 2021 Review Stage is yet to be concluded in September, we can still expect a lot of product ideas to reach the necessary 10,000 votes during the next months. Recently, the LEGO Ideas platform has seen a surprising increase in fan/member engagement as evidenced by the exponential growth of product ideas that qualify for the Review Stage. The First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review Stage, for example, managed to gather a record-breaking 57 product ideas last month. I can just imagine how busy the LEGO Ideas review team considering the sheer volume of these original creations that needed to be evaluated. And we can somewhat expect that this trend will continue throughout the next review cycles.

We can expect Grogu and Din Jarin to be included in this set in their holiday festive costumes. We also see a Storm Trooper, a Scout Trooper, and a Tusken Raider joining the fun as well. For the micro builds, it’s nice to see that Grogu’s floating baby basket is included as well, together with a couple of starships such as the usual TIE Fighter and Moff Gideon’s Light Cruiser. And since this set is specifically made to give some light-hearted LEGO humor during the holiday season, even the usual brick-built weapons in this set were modified for some winter fun.

We can expect this set to be released in September, and I’ll keep you posted once this set makes its debut at LEGO Shop@Home.
