Rebels Report has tweeted out the first image of the new LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded. They also note that the book will include the Star Wars Rebels characters along with all the minifigures that have been released since the previous book in 2011. There will be 72 additional pages in the newest Character Encyclopedia which bumps the page count to 280. The book will be released on May 5, 2015 but you can pre-order now on Amazon. Now to speculate on who the new exclusive minifigure will be included.
Amazon has a pretty good deal for the fairly new LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75054) for $89.91 which is more than $20 (18%) off the retail price of $109.99. The set is also eligible for free shipping with Amazon Prime. Christmas is coming real soon so this is a great set to get early at a very nice price as you probably won’t it this low again for a while when the deal expires.
Update: Sorry folks, it’s back up to $99.97 which is still 9% off.
The rumor mill has started up as we start to speculate what exclusive sets could be coming out in 2015. Earlier, we reported that the LEGO The Simpsons line would be getting another set.
Cavegod over on Eurobricks is reporting that we would be seeing a new LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Series set. The only thing that they mentioned was a UCS TIE. Since there are many different TIE variants such as the Advanced, Interceptor, Bomber, etc., it’s hard to guess which version it is.
My sources are telling me that the next LEGO Star Wars UCS set would be the TIE/LN Starfighter aka the TIE Fighter. I was also told that it would be priced around $199.99 and would be released during the May the 4th event. If this is true, it’ll be joining the TIE Interceptor (7181) from 2000 and Vader’s TIE Advanced (10175) from 2006 as the TIE variants in the LEGO Star Wars universe.
We’ll see in a few months whether it is indeed be the UCS TIE Fighter or another TIE aircraft.
Imperium der Steine has provided images of the last three sets for the LEGO Star Wars 2015 sets. We can now see the Microfighters ARC-170 Starfighter (75072) which includes a Clone Pilot. The Hailfire Droid (75085) has two Super Battle Droids and a Clone Trooper Lieutenant. Anakin’s Custom Jedi Starfighter (75087) is the Azure Angel from The Clone Wars animated series and includes Anakin Skywalker, a R4-P22 Astromech Droid, and Asajj Ventress.
To see the rest of the images for the 2015 LEGO Star Wars sets, head over to our previous post.
Today was the LEGO Star Wars Rebels building event at Toys R Us stores. If you were lucky to be there early, you got a chance to build a Micro Ghost ship from the animated TV series and take it home. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to the event but fellow SandLUG member Charlie did and he was kind enough to send us the instructions for the build. You can either download the PDF copy here or check out the images below to build your own. Thanks Charlie!
To celebrate the premiere of Star Wars Rebels animated TV series, Toys R Us stores is holding a building event to create the LEGO Star Wars Mini Ghost ship. This event will be held this Saturday, October 11 from 12-2pm. Be sure to get there early because these type of building events usually get pretty busy. In my opinion, the model doesn’t look like the Ghost but it’s free LEGO so it all good.
Disclaimer: The Toys R Us LEGO building events are mainly for children and teens. Adults who attend themselves may be turned away but some stores may allow it. The rules are up to the stores if they want to allow adults or not. YMMV.
It’s another day and Just2Good is back at it again with more LEGO 2015 image reveals and today, we have the 2015 LEGO Star Wars sets. We’ve had a rumored list for a few months now and it’s nice to finally see what the sets look like because I’ve been asked numerous times when the images would be revealed and now that time is here!
The LEGO Star Wars Rebels sub-theme will be expanding with more sets including the Wookie Gunship (75084) that we saw from San Diego Comic Con. The Microfighters sets will also be back with Series 2 with six more sets. For those who like to build armies, you’ll be glad to know that there are a lot of new Troopers and Commandos in 2015.
Note that there are still some sets without images including the ARC-170 Starfighter (75072), Hailfire Droid (75085), and Anakin’s Custom Jedi Starfighter (75087).
