In the lead up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we’ve seen a quite a few sets trickle in to further excite fans. But with less than a month before the next continuation of the Star Wars saga, LEGO is showcasing a few more kits to build out the lineup.
In this release we’re getting 9 new kits, most of which are directly centered around the new film and include Porgs, microfighters, First Order troops and more. As we get closer to the holidays, these sets will be must-have additions to any LEGO or Star Wars fan’s collection and will make perfect gifts.
At the forefront of the new releases we have the Ahch-To Island Training set which is complete with Rey, Luke, and ruins we’ve seen from the trailers. And even more notably, Porgs make their second LEGO debut in the set. So for those who aren’t planning on picking up the $800 Millennium Falcon, this will be a budget-friendly way to add the adorable creatures to your collection.
A few other Last Jedi-themed sets have been debuted as well. On the smaller side, the First Order Specialists Battle Pack will be a great way to expand your minifigure collection with what looks to be 3 entirely new figures. The Defense of Crait set caters to a more invested LEGO fan and includes five minifigures, a slick starfighter and more, making it the largest set of the lot.
LEGO is also continuing its Microfighters lineup into series 5 with the release of two new combo packs. First off we have the Ski Speeder vs First Order Walker which comes with the detail-packed miniature builds of Resistance and First Order vehicles, alongside two awesome looking minifigures. The A-Wing vs Tie Silencer set is quite similar, but this build includes Kylo Ren and his intimidating Lightsaber.
So far there is no word on pricing, part counts, or when the sets will hit store shelves, but odds are high we’ll be able to pick up these sets in time for The Last Jedi’s release as well as to give as gifts this holiday season. I don’t know about you, but the Defense of Crait set is definitely going on my Christmas list.
