A Towering 1771-Piece Yoda Leads a New LEGO Star Wars Collection
By Alvin Ward
This winter promises to be a busy one for fans of the Star Wars franchise. The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars television series, arrives on the Disney+ streaming service on its launch day, November 12. A few weeks later, the ninth chapter in the theatrical series, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, hits theaters on December 20. For LEGO fans, that means a fresh wave of new Star Wars sets to help you further immerse yourself in the space opera.
On October 4, which LEGO has dubbed Triple Force Friday, the company officially made its eight new sets available to the public. Though the sets depict vehicles and scenes from the upcoming TV series and movie, the most striking of these may be the towering Yoda figure, which stands an impressive 16 inches tall when all 1771 pieces are fully assembled. The diminutive Jedi features an articulated head, eyebrows, fingers, and toes. He also comes with a lightsaber as well as a Yoda minifigure. You can buy it from LEGO now for $99.99.
Other new releases include a Death Star Cannon ($19.99); a Resistance A-Wing Starfighter ($29.99); a Resistance Y-Wing Starfighter ($69.99); a multi-vehicle Pasaana Speeder Chase set, which is inspired by a sequence in The Rise of Skywalker ($39.99); an AT-ST Raider from The Mandalorian ($49.99); Kylo Ren’s Shuttle ($119.99); and another iteration of the Millennium Falcon as it appears in the new film ($159.99).
