If you’ve been perusing LEGO leaks on Reddit or noseyed on other LEGO sites, you might have seen rumblings of three upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets. As of yesterday, LEGO has officially lifted the lid on them. Coming on 26th April are three 18+ sets, all depicting scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy. Honestly, we love them all. And the best part? Despite being aimed at adults, none of these sets cost any more than £80.
Keep on reading, where we’ve broken down the facts and figures of each set. They’ll all be available at LEGO-stocking retailers from 26th April, or you can pre-order them right now from LEGO.com.
LEGO Star Wars 75329 Death Star Trench Run Diorama
- RRP £54.99
- 665 pieces
- Age 18+
The cheapest of the three new LEGO Star Wars sets is this one, the Death Star Trench Run Diorama. It recreates a scene from Star Wars: A New Hope, where Luke Skywalker is being chased down by three TIE Fighters as he attempts to destroy the Death Star. There are no minifigures included in this one, but we love the tiny recreations of the ships we know so well, set against a backdrop of a cutaway of the Death Star. It’s pretty cool.
LEGO Star Wars 75330 Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama
- RRP £69.99
- 1,000 pieces
- Age 18+
- Three minifigures
Next up is the Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama, this time creating a scene from The Empire Strikes Back. Remember when Luke crash-lands his ship just outside Yoda’s hut? This is that moment. It includes a minifigure of Luke Skywalker, Yoda and R2-D2. The scene itself looks fantastic, too: there’s Yoda’s hut, Luke’s wrecked X-Wing, and a backdrop of wonderfully-constructed swampy trees.
LEGO Star Wars 75339 Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama
- RRP £79.99
- 802 pieces
- Age 18+
- Four minifigures
Perhaps you’re a little confused as to why this one is more expensive than the last when it has 200 less pieces? Well, this scene, taken from A New Hope, shows Leia, Luke, Han Solo and Chewbacca trapped in the Death Star’s trash compactor. And, to emphasise the peril the group finds themselves in, the walls of the set move inwards, as if to crush them just as the actual trash compactor would. It’s a very neat feature indeed, and one we can’t wait to see in action.
