Following the massive leak by Walmart who accidentally posted (and have now removed) a glut of images when they made the product pages for these sets live on Tuesday, the existence of these sets won’t come as a surprise to any LEGO Star Wars fans who have been on planet Earth at any time in the last 24 hours. However, they left out a few important details – like the release date and price, so read on if you’re looking for those!
Though originally aimed at the child’s toy market, LEGO has slowly moved to be more inclusive of consumers who grew up building LEGO sets – and still do. To fulfill their growing adult fan base’s desire LEGO introduced a range of sets that would appeal to the 18+ market in 2019, and in May 2020 launched the first range of Star Wars replica helmet builds (dubbed BucketHeadz), and in August and November released two exclusive displayable sets.
Now the LEGO Group has revealed three new LEGO Star Wars construction sets for adult builders to recreate some of the most iconic designs from the Star Wars galaxy!
The new sets will feature two iconic additions to the LEGO Star Wars helmet collection first revealed last year – a bust inspired by Darth Vader and one in the likeness of a loyal Scout Trooper. Moreover, a stunning new model honoring the imposing Imperial Probe Droid completes the trio.
Designed for adults and experienced LEGO builders with a passion for the Star Wars galaxy, fans can now build, display and pay homage to the Dark Lord of the Sith by taking on these new building challenges.
