With the movie’s release just a few months away and photos of Rogue One LEGO sets beginning to surface, it’s inevitable that we begin seeing the kind of shot-for-shot recreations of the trailer in LEGO that we saw before The Force Awakens. markus19840420 proves that there’s plenty of inspiration to be had from less than two minutes of footage with this faithful recreation of the mysterious hooded figure kneeling before what appears to be a bacta tank as Imperial Guards look on. The walls lean in claustrophobically, and Markus has even managed to include puffs of steam.
Here’s hoping Rogue One will inspire the kind of excellent LEGO Star Wars creations that The Force Awakens did, such as the hangar scene and Rey’s AT-AT home by the same builder.
Star Wars: Rogue One hits theaters in just 4 months, and with it will come a whole new line of LEGO Star Wars sets. Thanks to the Italian and Spanish versions of Amazon, here’s your first look at eight of those sets, which are expected to be available Sept. 30. Click below to see all the sets! (Possible mild spoilers) (updated with 3 new Rogue One LEGO buildable figures)
The Brothers Brick posted these images in good faith based on their public availability on Amazon.com. However, the LEGO Group has informed us that Amazon mistakenly published the images early, and has requested that we remove the images. We are happy to cooperate with LEGO in remedying this situation.

Stop-motion animators BrotherhoodWorkshop have spent the last several weeks since the reveal of the new Star Wars Rogue One trailer painstakingly recreating it scene-for-scene with LEGO, and the result is impressive. The quality of the effects and animation they achieved in just a few short weeks is stunning, and the trailer in brick form makes me just as excited for Rogue One as the official trailer. I can’t wait to see the first Death Star’s construction on screen (and presumably a Star Wars movie where the Death Star doesn’t blow up!).
