LEGO Star Wars News from LEGO CON 2021

Today, LEGO fans everywhere were treated with tons of exciting and awe-inspiring moments at LEGO CON 2021. Among the events of the show was the reveal of three new Star Wars sets – all inspired by this most recent season of ‘The Mandalorian’. These sets will be available August 1st, see all the details below.

Up first is the Imperial Light Cruiser, a 1,336 piece set priced at $159.99. Straight from the epic season finale, this set lets you set up the rescue of Baby Yoda. This set includes 5 LEGO minifigures: The Mandalorian, Cara Dune, Fennec Shand, Moff Gideon and a new-for-August-2021 Dark Trooper, plus a LEGO figure of the Child (Grogu), affectionately known as Baby Yoda. The starship features a bridge that doubles as a handle for flying, 2 rotating turrets with spring-loaded shooters, 2 mini TIE Fighters and a launcher, plus a hatch to access the cabin.

Also revealed today is Boba Fett’s ship, a $49.99 set with 593 pieces. Minifigures in this set include Boba Fett with a blaster and The Mandalorian with his blaster rifle and a beskar spear, plus a Carbonite brick to add to the creative play possibilities. The ship has a handle for easy flying, an opening LEGO® minifigure cockpit, rotating wings, 2 stud shooters, 2 rotating dual blaster cannons (non-shooting) and a compartment for a Carbonite brick. A transporter vehicle is also included to move the starship on the ground in play scenarios; this also makes a great display stand for builders to show off their creation in an upright flight position.

The third set revealed today is the Imperial Armored Marauder, priced at $39.99 with 478 pieces. You can recreate the bunker blasting action between Greef Karga and Stormtroopers with this LEGO® brick model of the Imperial Armored Marauder from Season 2. Four minifigures are included in this set, Greef Karga with a blaster pistol, 2 Stormtroopers with blasters and a new-for-August-2021 Artillery Stormtrooper with a mortar gun and backpack accessory element.

The buildable Marauder model has 4 stud shooters, including 2 on the rotating rear turret, 2 foldout blaster cannons (non-shooting), a LEGO® minifigure cockpit and a cabin for 2 LEGO minifigures.
