During the recent LEGO CON event, LEGO announced three new LEGO Star Wars sets based on The Mandalorian television series. In addition, three other sets are coming that weren’t talked about during the CON but will also get released in August. And there are also some other upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets that weren’t yet revealed. Let’s take a look at what’s coming and then we can discuss!
The #75311 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Armored Marauder is from Season 2 of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, and features a rotating rear turret, with 2 stud-shooters, 2 additional stud-shooters at the front, and a cockpit, an interior cabin with enough space for 2 minifigs, ammo compartments, and a lookout point. The vehicle measures over 3 in. (8 cm) high, 7.5 in. (19 cm) long, and 4 in. (10 cm) wide. The included minifigs are Greef Karga, an Artillery Stormtrooper, and two Imperial Stormtroopers. The set comes with 478 pieces, and the price is as follows: £34.99, $39.99, €39.99. The set will be available in August at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The #75312 LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett’s Starship is a smaller version of the previous releases, but still includes many of the key features. Notice that it is no longer called the Slave I, even though it’s the same ship. The name change was done by the request of Disney, as they want to eliminate using the word “slave” in the Star Wars franchise. The ship features a handle for easy swooshing action, an opening cockpit, rotating wings, two stud-shooters, and two rotating dual blaster cannons (non-shooting). The overall size is 3.5 in. (8 cm) high, 8 in. (20 cm) long, and 8 in. (20 cm) wide. The included minifigs are Boba Fett and Din Djarin, and the set comes with 592 pieces. Prices are as follows: £44.99, $49.99, €49.99. It will be available in August at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The #75315 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Light Cruiser is also from Season 2 of The Mandalorian, and features a bridge that doubles as a handle for flying (very swooshable!), two rotating turrets with spring-loaded shooters, plus two cute mini TIE Fighters, and a launcher. In addition, a hatch gives access to the cabin, which has a hologram table and storage for the electrobinoculars and other accessory elements. The cruiser measures over 5 in. (13 cm) high, 22.5 in. (58 cm) long, and 8.5 in. (22 cm) wide, and includes five minifigs: The Mandalorian, Cara Dune, Fennec Shand, Moff Gideon, and a Dark Trooper, plus a LEGO figure of the Child (Grogu), affectionately known as Baby Yoda. The set comes with 1,336 pieces, and prices are as follows: £149.99, $159.99, €159.99. It will be available in August at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The #75310 LEGO Star Wars Duel on Mandalore set is based on Star Wars The Clone Wars, and it features a brick-built throne with a secret drawer containing a blaster pistol, plus a decorative surround including a pop-out window element. There is also a nicely decorated Mandalorian vault for imprisoning Darth Maul. The set includes two minifigures: Ahsoka Tano with two lightsabers, and Darth Maul with a double-bladed lightsaber. This is a solid little set with 147 pieces for the price of: £17.99, $19.99, 19.99€. It will be available in August at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
We already talked about the #75314 LEGO Star Wars The Bad Batch – Attack Shuttle (see: LEGO Star Wars Bad Batch Set Available for Pre-Order), but since this set is also going to be released in August, it’s worth repeating the basic info. The set is inspired by the new Star Wars animated series, titled Star Wars: The Bad Batch, featuring five Bad Batch clones; Tech, Echo, Hunter, Wrecker and Crosshair, plus a Gonk Droid. The shuttle comes with wings that move up and down for landing and flight modes, two spring-loaded shooters, an opening dual cockpit, and rear cabin with space for two minifigures and weapons storage. Two speeders are also included. The shuttle measures over 7 in. (20 cm) high, 10 in. (25 cm) long, and 5 in. (13 cm) wide with the wings folded up. The set comes with 969 pieces, and the prices are as follows: £89.99, $99.99, 99.99€. This set is already available for pre-order at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The #75316 LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Starfighter is from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It features an opening cockpit for two minifigs, two stud-shooters, two spring-loaded shooters, and adjustable wings (rotate them vertically for landing or fold them down and rotate the cockpit for flight formation). The Mandalorian starfighter measures over 2.5 in. (6 cm) high, 13 in. (33 cm) long, and 11.5 in. (30 cm) wide and comes with Bo-Katan Kryze, Gar Saxon, and a Mandalorian Loyalist. The set comes with 544 pieces and prices are as follows: £49.99, $59.99, 59.99€. The set will be available in August at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
There was also hope that LEGO will reveal the upcoming #75309 LEGO Star Wars Republic Gunship during LEGO CON, but unfortunately, this didn’t happen. You may recall that this set was voted for by fans to become the next LEGO Ultimate Collector Series set, so there is a lot of anticipation for its reveal. But hopefully, it will be announced soon. And in the meantime, you can check out the currently available and upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
