Now a rumour has popped up, started by Eurobrick insider Sir von LEGO, that a set depicting a cute and famous object from The Last Jedi would appear this year.
The set is described as similar to the not-quite-a-UCS BB-8 (75187) that was released in 2017. Given that 75221 is a number that has long been circulated as a reserved Star Wars set, could there be some truth in this news?
As forecast by our The Big Picture For The Year Ahead there is a UCS set expected for release in October – just in time for Thanksgiving. If this has whet your appetite then check these mouth-watering porg recipes out.
