The mechanism in the shoulders – built from Technic elements – suggests that when the lifting arms are rotated the upper grapples will swing out and may link in with some kind of cargo container, possibly (likely) to be the one seen being boosted in the heist on Vandor. The code-named Gorgon (75219) set is thought to be the Conveyex train and will probably have paired play action with this.
The only minifig shown with the set is Rio Durant, the four-armed alien pilot voiced by Jon Favreu, but it is believed that the set will contain three of four more minifigs to complete the play environment.
The set’s official name hasn’t been announced yet but our best guess is “Imperial AT-Hauler” as revealed by Jon Favreu’s post on Twitter.
