Readers here may or may not have noticed that there were no images of the summer wave of LEGO Star Wars sets. The reason is because photography of the sets were prohibited. That didn’t keep people from leaking the images though. I won’t be posting them and will be waiting until LEGO allows photography, hopefully at the New York Toy Fair.
However PromoBricks has provided some additional information about the upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets including the name of the TV series two of the sets will be based on. The Freemaker Adventures is a new LEGO TV series that will be airing in August, similar to The Yoda Chronicles and Droid Tales. There are two ships, Eclipse Fighter (75145) and Star Scavenger (75147), that will play an integral part in the show.
Also announced at the LEGO Star Wars press conference at Nuremberg is that we should expect some sets based on the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie. There are no details on these sets but they are expected to be released in October to coincide with the movie release in December. It was also mentioned that there’s a new lightsaber that was shown that is similar to Count Dooku’s curved saber.
