Then over on the Return of the Jedi anniversary side of the new reveals, Princess Leia’s Boushh disguise is getting in on the helmet series.

There will be plenty more to look forward to the LEGO Star Wars collection in the rest of the year, but for now these three collectible kits are certainly a nice addition to the theme.
