The 2019 LEGO Star Wars sets released so far are all small to medium size sets, and as such, they didn’t get as much attention. However, this is actually good for LEGO Star Wars fans with a smaller budget and collectors who might feel burned out by all the large and expensive sets. In fact, the 2019 LEGO Star Wars collection includes some real gems worth checking out. We will also briefly discuss the upcoming sets that will be available next month. So, let’s take a look. 🙂
The bulk of the 2019 LEGO Star Wars sets releases so far as small LEGO Star Wars Microfighter sets and LEGO Star Wars Battle Packs. The #75223 LEGO Star Wars Naboo Starfighter Microfighter and the #75224 LEGO Star Wars Sith Infilterator Microfighter are both cute little sets with a starship to zoom around and a minifig to pilot them. The #75228 LEGO Star Wars Escape Pod vs. Dewback Microfighters is a double pack with two instruction booklets so friends can build together. Prices are $9.99 for the single packs, and $19.99 for the double pack. The sets are available at LEGO retailers and the Online LEGO Shop.
The #75225 LEGO Star Wars Elite Praetorian Guard Battle Pack includes three of the coveted and very cool looking Praetorian Guards plus a First Order Stormtrooper, and the #75226 LEGO Star Wars Inferno Squad Battle Pack includes Iden Versio and three Inferno Squad Agents. These sets are $14.99 each, and are a good way to build up entire armies. They are also available at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Then comes a series of slightly larger mini versions of scenes and vehicles. They are similar to the LEGO Star Wars Microfighters, and specifically made for younger kids with simpler building techniques. This includes the #75235 LEGO Star Wars X-wing Starfighter Trench Run, the #75237 LEGO Star Wars TIE Fighter Attack, and the #75247 LEGO Star Wars Rebel A-Wing Starfighter. The miniature vehicles are cute, well designed, and super fun. Another smaller set is the #75229 LEGO Star Wars Death Star Escape with just the essentials from the famous scene. Prices of these sets range between $14.99 and $29.99, and they are available at retailers and the Online LEGO Shop.
The two largest sets in the 2019 collection are the #75233 LEGO Star Wars Droid Gunship and the #75234 LEGO Star Wars AT-AP Walker. These are standard size sets with detailed building, lots of play-features, and several minifigures. I have included video-reviews of both sets (along with all the other sets we discussed here) in the player below by JANGBRiCKS, so you can check out all the details.
There is also an interesting limited-release set; the #75227 LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust, which is going to be available at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration 2019 in Chicago (April 11-15), as well as at Target stores starting on April 11th with the Target REDcard. The price is $39.99.
Also, if you browse the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop, you will notice that they already have the new Star Wars sets listed that will be available on April 1st. This includes the #75236 LEGO Star Wars Duel on Starkiller Base, the #75238 LEGO Star Wars Action Battle Endor Assault, the #75239 LEGO Star Wars Action Battle Hoth Generator Attack, the #75240 LEGO Star Wars Major Vonreg’s TIE Fighter, the #75241 LEGO Star Wars Action Battle Echo Base Defense, the #75242 LEGO Star Wars Black Ace TIE Interceptor, the #75243 LEGO Star Wars Slave I – 20th Anniversary Edition, the #75258 LEGO Star Wars Anakin’s Podracer – 20th Anniversary Edition, the #75259 LEGO Star Wars Snowspeeder – 20th Anniversary Edition, the #75261 LEGO Star Wars Clone Scout Walker – 20th Anniversary Edition, and the #75262 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Dropship – 20th Anniversary Edition. Although we have to wait a couple of days to be able to buy the sets, you can already check out details and pictures. Notice that the anniversary edition sets come with yellow-skinned minifigs! Take a look at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

I love the Dewback set and the junior x-wing! The anniversary sets are also cool. I rather have smaller sets like this.
Still have to Pace myself but it’s just so hard.😟 however ,would you find it wrong if I get the junior star wars sets. Just to scale things down a bit( I’m to old for that level of building ). Just the tie fighter and the a-wing .( maybe get multiple sets of those).
I actually really like the Juniors sets, and have several of them myself. In addition the scale these sets are in is something fans have been asking for a long time; not as small as the Microfighters, but not as big as regular sets. So, it’s perfectly fine for AFOLs to buy them for themselves, just like it’s perfectly fine for kids to build 16+ sets. Those are just suggestions. 🙂
Does the Darth Vader Bust have any play features? Or is it just a brick-built bust?
I’m not sure. I haven’t seen a description of it. It appears that the bust is not that big, so my guess is that it is just a bust for display.
The Darth Vader bust looks cool . I definitely want that. It would be cool if later on Lego would make a Yoda bust, but I hear rumers that there will be a yoda build like the porge and bb8 set . Like I said that might just be a rumer.
Hm… Yoda would be awesome! I hope he comes with wiggly ears! 😀
Off topic. Happy 80th batman!
A bit belated, but still pleasant!
Better late than never!
