The Microfighters are returning and there’s some new two packs for them. Also coming back are the Buildable Figures which look very nice. The main thing in this wave are the Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets so read on if you’re not afraid of spoilers read on but I’ll hide the images behind the spoiler tag just to be safe.

Russian online shop Exoforce.ru has released details of set names and descriptions of some 2018 LEGO Star Wars sets. These are translated from Russian so it might not be that accurate. Be warned, some of the sets will be based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi so there may be some spoilers. Also note that these are not all the sets that will be released in a few weeks.


Ski Speeder vs. First Order Walker (75195) – Defeat the First Order’s Storm Walker with the help of a super-speeder equipped with skis! Plant the pilot of the resistance spider and the First Order troopers in their cabins, ready the guns and get set for an exciting adventure.

Limited Edition Black LEGO VIP Card Now Shipping

LEGO Star Wars VIP Black Card

For those who were lucky enough to order LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) when it became available, you’ll be glad to know that the limited edition black LEGO VIP card that goes with it will be arriving in your mailbox by the end of the month. A reader named Jason has sent over a screenshot of the email that he received from LEGO saying that his card was on the way.

If you didn’t know, the black VIP card also comes with exclusive LEGO Star Wars rewards and benefits its in 2018 but there’s no word yet on what they would entail. As for the black VIP card itself, you can only get it you were able to purchase the UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) in-store or online by the end of 2017. Since stock on the Falcon has been pretty low to non-existent, especially on [email protected], there’s a high chance that you probably won’t be able to get your hands on one. Were you able to get the Falcon and did you get the email for the VIP card?

New Star Wars Trilogy Announced

StarWars.com has just announced that Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, will be creating a brand new Star Wars trilogy that will be coming in the future. This trilogy will be separate from the Skywalker saga and will introduce new characters that have never been on screen before. There’s no word on what the movies will consist of or when then will be in theaters.

Since it was stated that it will be separate from the original and current trilogies, my wish is for it to be based on the Old Republic story which takes place about 3,600 years before A New Hope. Some of the major characters that are part of this storyline include Revan, Darth Malgus, Satele Shan, Jace Malcom, and so on. This could continue into the Jedi Civil War storyline where Darth Revan takes on Malak as his apprentice. Of course all of this is part of Star Wars Legends banner which isn’t canon anymore so I’m not sure if Lucasfilms will go that route.

Because LEGO has a licensing agreement with Lucasfilm, there’s no doubt that there will be some sets that will be released alongside this new trilogy. What would you like to see for these new movies? Let us know in the comments below.
