LEGO Star Wars 75204 Sandspeeder revealed from The Last Jedi [News]

The December flyer for LEGO retail stores that arrived in many mail boxes today includes the first official photos of 75204 Sandspeeder. The set includes 278 pieces with two minifigs and will retail for $29.99 beginning on December 1st (though it’s also showing up in the wild already).

The vehicle is very obviously patterned after the T-47 airspeeder used as snowspeeders on Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back, further reinforcing pre-release perceptions among Star Wars fans of the parallels between Episode IV and Episode VIII. We’ll be doing a comparison review with previous LEGO snowspeeders in the next couple of days, ahead of the set’s release.

    This set actually isn’t from TLJ. I can’t find an image at the moment but it’s based on an old concept art toy

    OMG the empire strikes back returns again… Rey gets trained by an old master, speeders vs walkers…. it’s going to be another redressed repeat. Most definitely a parent gets revealed

    I’ve been thinking the same thing, another repeat movie. This seems to confirm it even more. I’m still going to watch it in theater and buy the dvd, but I’m not going to be happy about it. 😐

    except there is nothing to indicate that it is part of the new film. the Sanspeeder (including those extra fins) was part of Kenner’s “The Epic Continues” toy line proposal after ROTJ, a toyline and comic based storyline meant to leverage toy sales. (the line was basically them doing mods and repaints to existing toy designs to create original material)
    the Sandspeeder was eventually canonized in the EU (now Legends) in materials like the card game and various fact file books. those versions also included (never seen) variants like the swampspeeder (adapted to wet environments) and skyspeeder (adapted for use on gas planets and other worlds with no habitable surface)

    this is hardly the first time that Lego has included Legends material since the canon policy change, so i’d say that until we know more about the film and the set, lets not claim it is an episode VIII product.

    I don’t know if this sandspeeder will appear in The Last Jedi, but it’s definitely from Jakku. The white helmet that the gunner is wearing is identical in design to the one Rey has and briefly wears in The Force Awakens.

    But this set isn’t from The Last Jedi. It is either a Lego original or from an upcoming show.

    “except there is nothing to indicate that it is part of the new film”
    Well there’s that picture of Rey, Finn and Poe on the box sooooooooooo

    Just because the characters are from TLJ doesn’t mean that it’s TLJ. Last year, Obi-Wan’s Inceptor was released with a Kylo Ren picture on the top. That doesn’t mean that the inceptor was in TFA. Same with Captain Rex’s AT-TE; made for Rebels, relaesed with Kylo Ren picture

    I seriously doubt it’s from TLJ is what I’m getting at though. Look- this is on Jakku! Not even on Crait where the battle happens. This is probably just a thing for fun kind of like the SkyHopper they released a while back

    The freebie poster from Target they gave away a few Saturdays ago had schematic pictures of this set on one side (and Kylo and Rey brickheads on the other).

    I assume this is a US only release. Both the Lego store (Australia) and Target (Australia) knew nothing about it.

    There are four variants of the T47 Airspeeder. Sandspeeder, Snowspeeder, Swampspeeder and Skyspeeder. I think the Sandspeeder is definitely part of the new movie. I honestly don’t mind the use of old technology. The Snowspeeder was arguably the coolest fighter of all of them and it’s not even a fighter. It’s a cargo hauler.
