“Stars Wars: The Last Jedi” is now right around the corner, and one of the last big milestones before the movie’s actual release is tonight’s exciting Force Friday event– wherein most of the highly sought-after merchandise from this winter’s biggest movie becomes available at at both brick-and-mortar and online retailers.
Ahead of the fan-frenzy midnight release, LEGO has announced more tie-in products and sets featuring characters and ships from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” First up is the Resistance Transport Pod (set #75176) with Rose, Finn, and BB-8 minifigures.
Next is the spider-like First Order Heavy Scout Walker (set #75177), with Resistance Trooper, First Order Gunner, General Hux, and First Order Flametrooper minifigures.
Thirdly, we’ve got the sleek-looking Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter (set #75179), which includes Kylo Ren, BB-9E, First Order Stormtrooper, and First Order TIE Pilot minifigures.
This Resistance Bomber (set #75188) includes Resistance Bomber Pilot, Resistance Bombadier, Vice Admiral Holdo, Resistance Gunner Paige, and Poe Dameron minifigures.
The menacing First Order Heavy Assault Walker (set #75189) comes with Rey, Resistance Trooper, Captain Poe Dameron, First Order Walker Driver, and First Order Stormtrooper minifigures.
The final set revealed in the minifigure-scale series is also the biggest: the First Order Star Destroyer (set #75190) includes First Order Officer, First Order Shuttle Pilot, First Order Stormtrooper, First Order Stormtrooper Sergeant, Supreme Leader Snoke, and BB-9E minifigures.
In the buildable characters series, LEGO has unveiled this great-looking brick-built BB-8 (set #75187), which also includes a tiny minifigure version of BB-8 as well.
The Elite TIE Fighter Pilot (set #75526) will prove a formidable addition to your First Order navy.
Rey (set #75528) comes dressed in her “The Last Jedi” training outfit, with a blaster and Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber.
The Elite Praetorian Guard (set #75529) is reminiscent of the Imperial Royal Guards as seen in “Return of the Jedi,” with updated armor to suit the First Order and watch over Supreme Leader Snoke.
Finally, Chewbacca (set #75530) seems a little too happy, considering his best friend in the universe just got murdered, but it’s still a cool buildable character set that includes Chewie’s bowcaster.
