Darth Vader is Coming in 2018…In LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz Form

The LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz 2-pack set of Kylo Ren and Rey (41489) have been available to fans for near-on two weeks now. And those who have decided to purchase the box were greeted with an unexpected yet pleasant surprise. It came in the form of a foldout insert that recalled one of the famous teaser posters of the Star Wars prequel series.

Yes, that poster. See, the insert is a reproduction of the tease, but combining the aesthetics of the sequel trilogy that began with 2015’s The Force Awakens, and LEGO of course. In the foreground is a blank BrickHeadz figure, devoid of all features.


And behind the BrickHeadz, a familiar shadow. Yes, Darth Vader will be coming in LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz form next year. The foldout poster was shared by one Marc Morita on Reddit, so a big thank-you to him for sharing with the rest of the fandom.

Nice shout-out to Jake Lloyd there. It’s a shame the whole Star Wars acting experience soured him on showbiz enough to retire in 2001. Well, we’re waiting to be impressed for Lord Vader’s BrickHeadz, coming in 2018. May he not find you lacking faith, lest he be “disturbed.”
