The latest rumor popping up on #legoleaks2022 is the news that the next BrickHeadz addition to the LEGO Star Wars theme will be 40547 Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader two-pack, with a predicted May release and a $19.99 price tag.
Presumably a tie-in for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi live-action series, debuting on Disney+ on May 25th, the six-part anthology series begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Revenge of the Sith where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
While this will be the very first Obi-Wan Kenobi included in the BrickHeadz subtheme, this isn’t the first BrickHeadz version of Darth Vader that has been released, with 41619 Darth Vader being added in 2018.
Though many LEGO Star Wars rumors are baseless, we believe that the likelihood of this one is as close to certain as it can be without an official statement. What do you think? Fact or fiction, or will you take the high ground and avoid speculating?
