LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Encounter on Jakku (75148) Amazon Sale

One of the more interesting LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets from last year was the Encounter on Jakku (75148). Unfortunately, it the normal price of $59.99 was a bit too high for what you get however Amazon currently has it on sale for $35.76 which is 40% off and is a fair price for it. The set consists of a brick-built Luggabeast and exclusive Teedo and Unkar Plutt minifigures which are the main highlights.

LEGO Star Wars Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) Polybag Found

It looks like there’s a new LEGO Star Wars polybag that has surfaced that goes with the same style as the R3-M2 (40268) from a few months ago which is the Scarif Stormtrooper (40176). Like before, the minifigure goes on a little stand with a background. There’s no word on when it will be available. The R3-M2 was available at LEGOLAND California and only recently in the UK and as far as I know, it hasn’t been available through regular channels like [email protected] or Toys R Us at this time.

LEGO Releases Image of Star Wars Old Luke Skywalker Minifigure

LEGO Star Wars

It looks like the Russian portal for LEGO.com has given our first look at Old Luke Skywalker from the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens heading into Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The image pays tribute to the 40th anniversary of Star Wars and the outfit shown in the image above is similar to Obi-Wan Kenobi’s from various sets that has been released already with some slight color changes.

There’s no way to know that this version of him will be in an upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi set coming this Force Friday until sets start to be revealed days leading up to the event.

Thanks to everyone who messaged in about this earlier today.

How a LEGO Star Wars Set is Created

A particular LEGO set takes lots of time and planning to get from the development stage to store shelves. During Star Wars Celebration 2017, LEGO Star Wars Senior Art Director and Brand Manager Rob Johnson did a panel to discuss the development process of how a LEGO Star Wars set was created which normally the public doesn’t get to see.

Solid Brix Studios was able to attend the exclusive panel and he has posted the whole panel on his channel. If you have some time, I highly suggest checking out the video as it does have some great detail of how a LEGO set is made.
