Today at Star Wars Celebration VII 2015, LEGO unveiled to the general public some of the summer 2015 wave of LEGO Star Wars sets. Unfortunately, they were nothing new that we’ve already seen before back in February at New York Toy Fair which was for press viewing. The sets that were shown off so far today were the Luke Skywalker (75110) and Darth Vader (75111) Buildable Constraction sets, the Imperial Shuttle Tydirium (75094), and the Imperial Assault Carrier (75106). If the videos below were too quick or blurry, visit our link above to see clearer still shots of the sets. Stay tuned this weekend as more sets will be revealed but I have a feeling that they are sets that we’ve already seen images of before.
Update: Right when I hit publish on this post, LEGO tweeted out a 360 degree view of the General Grievous (75112) Buildable set. Also review was the Obi-Wan Kenobi (75109) figure as well. I’ll keep an eye out if there are any other reveals today.

LEGO has officially released images of the Star Wars Celebration 2015 set, the Tatooine Mini-Build. The set consists of 178 pieces and will retail for $40. Attendee badge holders will be able to purchase it today at 11am and at 10am on Friday and Saturday.
The set comes with a mini Sandcrawler, Landspeeder, Lars Homestead, and micro versions of C-3P0, R2-D2, Owen Lars, two Jawas, and also a regular C-3P0 minifigure. There’s no word on how many sets are available each day but don’t be surprised if they’re sold out very quickly. Fans can also have the set signed by designer Mark Roe.
Stay tuned for later today when LEGO will be revealing some of the summer 2015 sets and possibly some of the Episode VII: The Force Awakens sets.
Earlier today while I was at my non-LEGO related job, The Wall Street Journal published a couple more of the new LEGO Star Wars Constraction sets that will be on display at the LEGO booth at Star Wars Celebration this week with Obi-Wan Kenobi (75109) and General Grievous (75112). They will be joining Jango Fett (75107) – 85 pcs, Clone Commander Cody (75108) – 82 pcs, Luke Skywalker (75110) – 83 pcs, and Darth Vader (75111) – 160 pcs in the wave that will be released later this year. Obi-Wan will have 83 pieces with his cape in a bag while Grievous has 186 pieces.
