Lego Unveil Upcoming Sets For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Lego has unveiled the first wave of Star Wars merchandise from the upcoming Rogue One film.

The sets, which were revealed on Thursday, offer a look into the film that premieres this December.

The unexpected drop gives a glimpse into old and new vehicles and fighters including those that we’ve never seen before.

One of these new fighters is the TIE Striker, which is the first variant of the classic TIE Fighter that will be canonical – treated as part of the main Star Wars canon – in more than thirty years. The TIE Striker offers a sleeker and more aerodynamic look compared to the iconic TIE Fighter, and features adjustable wings.

The TIE Striker will retail for US$69.99.

The Rebels on the other hand have a new craft in the form of the Rebel U-Wing Fighter. The ship looks more of a transport vehicle compared to the typical fighters we’ve seen in the past, but it packs a heavy artillery with front spring-loaded shooters and stud shooters on the sides.

The Rebel U-Wing Fighter will retail for US$69.99.

Included in the first wave are the classic AT-ST Walker, an Imperial Assault Hovertank, and figurines of security droid K-2SO and protagonist Jyn Erso.

If you’re really into Star Wars vehicles however, a standout centrepiece may be the Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle, the largest and most expensive set in the Rogue One collection.

The shape looks like a combination between the Imperial Shuttles of the original trilogy (Episodes IV-VI) and Kylo Ren’s from The Force Awakens.

The set will retail for US$89.99 and will include six figurines.

The Rogue One collection is set to release on Force Friday (Sept 30, 2016).
