LEGO Star Wars Spring 2018 sets unveiled at Toy Fair New York [News]

Live from the show floor at Toy Fair New York 2018, we’re bringing you all the new product reveals in the LEGO Star Wars line, scheduled for release later this year. We’ve already covered our hands-on take on the new Millennium Falcon, so we’ll cover the rest of the LEGO Star Wars reveals in this article.

The selection of products that LEGO revealed today is fairly limited — focused only on the April wave of sets and not the sets we know will be released in August.

LEGO Star Wars Original Trilogy sets

Even though the focus of this year’s releases centers on Solo, the Original Trilogy continues to get new sets, including several re-releases that are sure to make a new generation of young Star Wars fans overjoyed.

75208 Yoda’s Hut – $29.99 – 229 pieces

The last time that a LEGO Star Wars set depicted Dagobah was back in 2003/2004 with 4502 X-wing Fighter. 75208 Yoda’s Hut includes Master Yoda, Luke Skywalker, and R2-D2, with 229 pieces. The set will retail for $29.99 US / 29.99 € and will be released in April.

LEGO Star Wars Prequel Trilogy sets

Despite the vitriol directed at the Prequel Trilogy by many Star Wars fans who saw the prequels as adults, the movies remain very popular with younger viewers, and LEGO continues to produce new sets from the trilogy each year.

75206 Jedi & Clone Troopers Battle Pack – $14.99 – 102 pieces

75206 Jedi & Clone Troopers Battle Pack includes Ki-Adi-Mundi, Barriss Offee, and two Clone Troopers with what appears to be a miniaturized version of the Republic Gunship. The set will include 102 pieces and retail for $14.99 / 16.99 € on April 20th.

LEGO Star Wars merchandise

The LEGO booth also included a display of LEGO Star Wars merchandise, including the Ultimate LEGO Star Wars book by TBB editors Chris Malloy and Andrew Becraft, as well as a backpack, T-shirts, the usual keychains, and so on. Unfortunately, booth staff weren’t able to answer too many questions about the licensed merchandise (vs. the LEGO sets on display), and we’re not aware whether the cool new T-shirts will be available in adult sizes.

LEGO Star Wars buildable figures

Several new and revamped characters join the line of “constraction” figures later this year. The one set on display at Toy Fair was Darth Maul.

75537 Darth Maul – $29.99 – 104 pieces

Complete with legs, 75537 Darth Maul will retail for $29.99 for 104 pieces.
