LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles

by admin on December 27, 2012

in LEGO Star Wars

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. Specially commissioned photography shows minifigures and vehicles in action, with tons of storylines and facts that kids will love.

If you would like to keep up with LEGO Star Wars Yoda Chronicles you can visit StarWars.LEGO.com. Here is also a direct link to Yoda’s Blog, where he supposed to be revealing that exciting news he was talking about. 🙄

So what do you think Yoda is talking about? And thoughts on what that great threat to the Galaxy is going to be? Any ideas or insights? Feel free to share them in the comment section below! 😉

I wonder what that was coming out of the shell

Sam, ninja of water December 27, 2012 at 10:39 AM

WHAT IS THAT?!?

Strider December 27, 2012 at 12:05 PM

I had heard that George Lucas sold the rights of starwars to disney. Maybe disney and Lego are working together on a tv show and there will.also be sets? Just an idea.

Legoman640 December 27, 2012 at 12:09 PM

It looks like some type of human/robot that was trying to attack Yoda. It looks like it has a robotic arm that can blast some type of laser. Is it just me or did it look like he was going to blast out a lightsaber? 😕

Chris of Yoda Archives December 27, 2012 at 12:35 PM

Looking forward to it. Hope it’s a series but guessing just a special. But a new LEGO book featuring Yoda will be cool.

Legoman640 December 27, 2012 at 12:41 PM

Yea,I hope its a series too! :mrgreen:

admin December 27, 2012 at 12:51 PM

Yeah, that is correct; George Lucas sold the rights to Disney. So anything can happen! 🙄

admin December 27, 2012 at 12:53 PM

Yeah, I’m also thinking it is some type of a clone or cyborg. But did you see how many more there are in those pods? Like hundreds or thousands! Maybe some kind of a super-clone army with Jedi-like powers. 😕

Legoman640 December 27, 2012 at 1:02 PM

Yea I realized that too! I saw the whole video and it looks The Emperor,Count Dooku,and General Greivous is involved in it too!

Zubashi December 27, 2012 at 2:25 PM

Looks cool. Could new sets of this appear?
Anyway, Sith-cyborg ftw.

That would be awesome! With Disney buying LEGO I’m sure both the EU stories will expand, and also more movies will come. 🙂

admin December 27, 2012 at 2:45 PM

I remember reading that. I knew the price was something in the billions, but couldn’t remember how much exactly. When numbers get that big my brain gets fuzzy. 😀

Legoman640 December 27, 2012 at 3:12 PM

$4 billion dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Legoman640 December 27, 2012 at 3:41 PM

What do you think that crystal is for that was in the video? 😕

Strider December 27, 2012 at 3:59 PM

Whoa. How did my picture get purple? It used to be green. Oh well, when you have the brick blogger, I guess you colors don’t matter too much 🙂

Strider December 27, 2012 at 3:59 PM

Hey now it’s green again.

admin December 27, 2012 at 6:07 PM

Yeah, that’s like 4,000,000,000… right? Hard to comprehend. 🙄

admin December 27, 2012 at 6:08 PM

Seems like it is used to active those super-clones, or whatever they are…

Admin, sorry that this is a little of topic, but look at this!

http://shop.lego.com/en-US/LEGO-Minifigures-Series-9-71000

Isn’t this amazing?!? I Certainly will get myself some of those!

Strider December 27, 2012 at 9:25 PM

Huh. Guess I misspelled it. I’ll be careful not to do that again 🙂

Jacob Dakins December 27, 2012 at 11:47 PM

I think the threat should be the son or grandson of the infamous Apprentice to Darth Vader. I think because Vader’s apprentice was on of the most power Jedi ever.

Karol December 28, 2012 at 10:38 AM

The mysterious thing is either X-1 or X-2. They were both Clones with force-like abilities.

Karol December 28, 2012 at 10:40 AM

There was no army of super-clones. But there were TWO Force-sensitive clones secretly made. X-1 and X-2.

Karol December 28, 2012 at 10:41 AM

There is also a chance it could be droid/ human hybrids able to cope with an explosion of a thought bomb. Link for thought bomb: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Thought_bomb

admin December 28, 2012 at 11:58 AM

Karol, thanks for sharing that! Very interesting!

admin December 28, 2012 at 11:59 AM

Thanks for the link! I’m not so expert in the EU stories, so it is great to have someone who knows! 🙂

admin December 28, 2012 at 12:07 PM

Strider, you didn’t missspelled it, but you used yahoo for one and rocketmail for the other. 😉

admin December 28, 2012 at 12:09 PM

Sam, yes, the new series was just listed today. I’m planning to get a bunch of them too! 🙂

admin December 28, 2012 at 12:11 PM

Glad you like it! 2013 is going to be another awesome year for LEGO fans! 😀

Strider December 28, 2012 at 12:23 PM

Oh. Thanks Admin.

percy jackson December 28, 2012 at 1:05 PM

yeah me too

ShaBoomGal December 28, 2012 at 8:34 PM

I bet the yoda chronicles is going to be one of those lego hour long star wars “movies”. They are on cartoon network sometimes.

ShaBoomGal December 28, 2012 at 8:46 PM

I think this because in the commercial for the yoda chronicles, there is a bunch of goofy things with the star wars legos. I’m not 100% sure.

ShaBoomGal December 28, 2012 at 8:53 PM

I looked this up, and it says that it broke the timeline because Lando was in this, and he isn’t supposed to be born, so I also think that this isn’t going to be taken seriously.

hi people December 28, 2012 at 10:08 PM

lando’s in it . Han solo is just a young boy n0w. oh my god. * IT’S AWESOME!*

admin December 29, 2012 at 10:24 AM

Very well could be!

admin December 29, 2012 at 10:26 AM

Well, LEGO Star Wars mini-movies always have a lot of fun elements and interesting twists. It is not like they are official parts of the Star Wars saga. However they are fun and very popular. 🙂

randoman December 29, 2012 at 1:10 PM

it looks like a video game to me. saving my money just in case

Legoman640 December 30, 2012 at 2:43 PM

Hey Guys! The Yoda Chronicles is starting January 5th! On the LEGO.com Star Wars Homepage it talks about it! In Yoda’s blog! :mrgreen:

Legoman640 December 30, 2012 at 3:03 PM

Best day ever!

admin December 30, 2012 at 3:20 PM

Yeah, pretty exciting! 😀

JackMcLegoMan January 1, 2013 at 8:17 AM

There will be a web series for the Yoda Chronicles. It starts on January 5th, 2013. I think the weapon is the clones turning into evil cyborgs. And Count Dooku used an evil experimented crystal to turn the clones evil.

EvanMcLegoMan January 1, 2013 at 8:21 AM

I bet it will be very awesome. And it will be very cool. And I will have a fun time watching. 🙂

brydx January 1, 2013 at 10:05 AM

maybe a some tipe of clone.

Micah January 1, 2013 at 8:31 PM

It’s probably a lego star wars speical on carttoonnetwork like The Empire Strikes Out and the one where Han Solo is a kid I got young Han Solo as a minifig too! 🙂

Micah January 1, 2013 at 10:16 PM

Sadly…I can only get one lego set of 2013 that is $50 or less my mom says so a nd it’s my own money for crying out loud! 🙁

Micah January 2, 2013 at 12:04 AM

if it is a web series what website is it on?

admin January 2, 2013 at 10:18 AM

You mean the Yoda Chronicles? It will have several aspects. A TV show, a book and Yoda will continue updating his blog throughout the year. So if you want to keep updated you would probably want to read the blog first and see what Yoda announces there. 🙂

admin January 2, 2013 at 10:20 AM

Micah, I can see you are disappointed that you can only spend $50, however I’m sure your mom has your best interest in mind. She probably just wants to make sure you don’t go overboard on just one thing. When you get older and have a job, and after your basic needs are taken care of, you can always get deeper into the hobby and spend more. Actually, you can buy a really nice LEGO set for $50 and keep yourself occupied and do a lot of creative things with it for a while. Have fun! 🙂

Micah January 2, 2013 at 6:45 PM

The Special can’t be a yoda because their are no pointy ears i bet it is the guy with a robotic arm!

Micah January 3, 2013 at 11:47 AM

Thanks Admin I got multiple lego sets instead of just one so i could make battles with stop motion animation on my 3DS i got Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas and the AT-RT lego set! 😀

Legoman640 January 3, 2013 at 6:54 PM

Hey guys! Remember that date I said for the Yoda Chronicles to begin? Well,I was wrong. Yoda changed it on his blog! The real date is Friday January 11th. On LEGO.com Star Wars Blog he says:

Unfortunately the date that was earlier posted on the blog regarding the launch of this year’s big story The Yoda Chronicles was not correct. It will launch on Friday January 11th.
However,we have more cool news to tell you now. Throughout the whole year,starting from January 11th you will have access to a new portal filled with weekly updates. This will truly be awesome for all of us!

I was quoting exactly from Yoda’s blog. I’m going to check occasionally going to check Lego.com for more updates.

admin January 3, 2013 at 8:04 PM

Thanks for letting us know! 🙂

Legoman640 January 4, 2013 at 8:35 AM

This is my favorite site other than Lego.com and Youtube. I saved it on top sites on my computer. If I could rate this site,I would give it 5 stars. Keep up the good work. 😉

admin January 4, 2013 at 9:40 AM

Well, thank you! Hope you will continue to like it. 🙂

Legoman640 January 5, 2013 at 4:58 PM

Amazing how after a post gets older,nobody goes on it. 🙁

admin January 5, 2013 at 7:20 PM

Naw, don’t be discouraged. Actually something like 90% of TBB visitors just lurk in the shadows and never comment. 😉

Legoman640 January 12, 2013 at 3:48 PM

The Yoda Chronicles have started! The videos are on Lego.com! Don’t miss it!

Legoman640 January 12, 2013 at 3:50 PM

It’s sot of like a series.

Legoman640 January 12, 2013 at 3:51 PM

Sorry! I wanted to say sort. 😳

admin January 13, 2013 at 10:09 AM

I was quite disappointed actually. No voice? It looks more like a commercial for the new sets. I hope future episodes will be more developed. 😕

Leah bodwell January 13, 2013 at 10:11 PM

Wow:) so cool a new siries sweat!

Legoman640 January 14, 2013 at 4:07 PM

So am I.

TheBrickOverlord February 19, 2013 at 3:25 PM

when I saw that disco guy in the advertisement I thought that it was like, a star wars version of lego universe or something. So , i’m kinda disapointed
cos’ ive been wating for a new lego MMORPG for three years 🙁

TheBrickOverlord February 19, 2013 at 3:27 PM

ooohhhh, I love these smiley faces 🙂 🙁 :{)

admin February 19, 2013 at 4:02 PM

Yeah, I know what you mean… there should be a new MMORPG coming out though… at some point. 😉
