Jedi News has posted in image of what appears to be the Inquisitor minifigure from the new LEGO Star Wars Rebels line. The trailer scene appeared on Disney XD showing the Inquisitor along with a few Stormtroopers escorting Ezra Bridger somewhere.
A few weeks ago, we reported on a rumored list of LEGO Star Wars 2015 sets and there will be a number of Star Wars Rebels sets in the wave. The Inquisitor minifigure will most likely be in one of these sets and my guess would be the Imperial Troop Transport (75078).
Check out the comparison of the minifigure and the animated version below to see the similarities between them. More details of the 2015 LEGO Star Wars sets as they become available.
Hulk_Smash on over Eurobricks has given details on some of the new 2015 LEGO Star Wars sets that we reported on last week. The details are fairly vague due to the person describing the sets from memory. Again, the details are from prelimary pictures from a retailer catalog.
Imperial Troop Transport (75078) – Similar to the Imperial Landing Craft (7659) from 2007. There are four Stormtroopers.
Shadow Troopers (75079) – Includes a small vehicle. Battle pack includes two Dark Guards which I assume could be the Emperor’s Shadow Guards and two Shadow Troopers.
AAT (75080) – Jar Jar Binks makes his return in a LEGO Star Wars set. There will also be another Gungan minifigure. No mentioning if it’s just a generic Gungan or a major character like Boss Nass or Captain Roos Tarpals. The set also has a Battle Droid. Retail price is about £25.
T-16 Skyhopper (75081) – Comes with some sort of pilot minifigure, a Tusken Raider, and a womp rat.
Geonosis Troopers (75089) – Includes a small AT-RT. Clone Troopers are the same as the Kashyyyk Troopers (75035), but with a sandy brown color.
Canadian LEGO fans will have something to cheer about when they attend FAN EXPO Canada 2014 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from August 28-31. Like with San Diego Comic Con 2014, they will also have an exclusive LEGO set being sold at the convention, the LEGO Star Wars Rebels The Ghost.
It is exactly the same as the SDCC version but it includes the Kanan Jarrus minifigure instead of Chopper. So technically, the ship itself isn’t exclusive anymore but the box and combination of the minifigure and set are. LEGO Star Wars fans who want to complete their collection will now have another set to go after. Check out the press release of the event below:
“For LEGO, the event is about the fans – it’s an opportunity to engage with builders of all ages and offer a fun interactive experience that is unlike any other in Canada. Because YOU are some of the most loyal fans of LEGO, we are offering an advance sneak peak of the FIRST EVER LEGO FAN EXPO Canada Exclusive. This limited edition LEGO STAR WARS Rebels set features The Ghost Starship with Kanan Jarrus Minifigure from the upcoming STAR WARS Rebels TV series.
“The set is ONLY available at the LEGO Booth #748 between Thursday, August 28 to Sunday, August 31, 2014, while quantities last. Tickets will be distributed at the booth on a first come, first serve basis when the show floor opens to the public.

There have been reports that the LEGO Star Wars Imperial Shuttle (30246) polybag has started showing up at Target stores. It has 57 pieces and retails for $3.99 and can be found at the implulse buy section at the checkout aisles. It is pretty much a mini version of the Lambda-class Imperial Shuttle. The polybag may or may not be at your stores yet but it’s worth checking out. Thanks to James and Ben for emailing this in.
