After the gato was let out the bolsa a few days ago, LEGO has now put the leaked 187th Legion Republic Fighter Tank – inspired by a Hasbro action figure multipack released 15 years ago and LEGOized by the Star Wars team who took a deep dive into the Star Wars legendarium and came back up with Mace Windu and his purple troopers – up for pre-order.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars fans can play out exciting clashes between Mace Windu’s 187th Legion Clone Troopers and the Battle Droids with this LEGO® brick-built Republic Fighter Tank (75342).
