First revealed in the November-December issue of the LEGO Club Magazine, 2013 will bring an interesting new addition to LEGO Star Wars from our little green friend; Jedi Master Yoda. The title is “The Yoda Chronicles, Secrets to Tell, I Have…”
What the LEGO Star Wars Yoda Chronicles is exactly is not yet known. Is it a TV show? A video game? An online series? Or perhaps all of that and more? There is a mysterious video posted on the LEGO Star Wars website, where Yoda seems to be battling a new threat to the Galaxy…
Apparently the Dark Side is preparing a weapon more powerful than any Jedi has ever faced - and Yoda is quite nervous about it. In his online diary he states: “The power of the Dark Side is growing. Preparing a weapon the Dark Side is. Hopefully, uncover its true nature soon, we will, mmmm! December 29th, reveal exciting news, I will. Promise I do.”
There is also a new book scheduled for 2013 by DK Publishing with the same title, LEGO Star Wars: Yoda Chronicles. The book is 64 pages and will retail for $18.99. It will also include an exclusive minifigure (most likely a special edition Yoda). Below is the official description along with some images from the book (click picture for larger view):
Relive Yoda’s adventures in the LEGO Star Wars galaxy with this all new format from DK. The first in a brand-new series, LEGO Star Wars: Yoda Chronicles features themed spreads based on the legendary Yoda’s adventures, from his leadership of the Jedi council and his duels with Count Dooku and Darth Sidious, to his support of the Wookiees in the Clone Wars and his training of Luke on Dagobah.
