When word that the buildable figures slated for later this year were getting cancelled LEGO let the word out that there would be a compensation set and fans immediately began to wonder. When rumours of a buildable porg started to circulate it was pretty taken as fact that this set was locked in.
The Holo-Brick Archives now has proof positive that all the energy gone into talking and typing about this set hasn’t been wasted – click on the “artist’s sketch” below to check out the full image.
This creature was previously only available with 75200 Ahch-To Island Training, 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon and in the Make & Take event that LEGO stores hosted on Star Wars Day. This new larger-scale version is going to be priced US$64.99/€69.99 and is expected in October.
