More high-quality 2017 LEGO news continues to emerge as we near the end of the year. Today’s reveals are all based on vehicles and events in the Classic Trilogy, and are expected to hit stores in January. While all of these are redesigns of previously released material, over this past year as I’ve gotten back into Star Wars LEGO, I’ve come to appreciate the significant improvements that LEGO designers have been making. And of course, each re-release or redesign gives a new generation of LEGO fans an opportunity to add a new vehicle to their collection.
The new 75175 A-Wing Starfighter appears not to be a mere recolor of the Rebels version of the A-wing in 75150 Vader’s TIE Advanced vs. A-wing Starfighter. It includes 358 pieces and three minifigs, including Lando Calrissian in his Rebel General outfit.
