Sometimes these are cryptic, like Gorgon (the Conveyex in Solo) or Green Seal Leader (Jyn Erso), and take a lot of sleuthing to figure out. Other times they are hidden in plain English – like the “New Adult White” and “New Adult Green” listings that appeared on a dealer’s listing a few weeks ago.
Naturally, this started a buzz amongst those LEGO Star Wars fans who follow such things but no-one could come up with a feasible suggestion. Until now, because Luke over at Stonewars.de has put forward the hypothesis that these are nothing less than a Stormtrooper and Boba Fett bust.
New Adult White (75276): 647 parts
New Adult Green (75277): 625 parts
The brick-built bust isn’t new, and besides the Darth Maul and George Lucas that have been produced in the past, LEGO have already released two Star Wars busts – Celebration Chicago had 75227 Darth Vader Bust with 327 pieces and the 484 piece 77901 Sith Trooper Bust, which was a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive – n this 2019. Both of these construction sets have no play features and are aimed at adult collectors.
Stone Wars points out that “Of course, the two codenames ‘White’ and ‘Green’ allow for speculation” and goes on to suggest that white is the more obvious of the two as the Republic clone or Imperial/First Order stormtrooper are the only suitable candidates. Green, however, is suggestive of either Yoda – which has already been tipped to be an October release – or Boba Fett. Given that there are other licensees pursuing a similar product development route it is likely that Stone Wars is on to something,
The one outstanding issue is the piece count. Both the existing busts are 300 elements less than the suggested inventory, and far short of a life-size helmet, which would push passed 1500 parts. The best guess is that these busts – if that’s what they are – will have shoulders and neck or be slightly larger and far more detailed than the current ones.
