LEGO Star Wars sets from Resistance and more in-person at the 2019 New York Toy Fair [News]

Live from the show floor at the 2019 New York Toy Fair, we have new close-up images of the upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets revealed this morning. These sets are scheduled for release starting in April.


The entire upcoming LEGO Star Wars line up from Resistance, the new “Action Battle” sets, and the 20th Anniversary sets (close-ups here) are shown mounted on the wall, along with 75234 AT-AP Walker that launched in January (currently 20% off on Amazon).

75240 Major Vonreg’s TIE Fighter – $69.99 – 496 pcs

The first set based on Star Wars Resistance, this red and black First Order TIE Fighter is equipped with a hyperdrive and comes with Major Vonreg, General Leia, Kaz Xiono, and Bucket the Droid (R1-J5).

Major Baron Elrik Vonreg looks pretty smart in his crimson and black pilot gear.

This modified TIE Interceptor from the Ace Squadron is the second set based on Star Wars Resistance. It comes with pilot Griff Halloran, Poe Dameron, and BB-8.

The Interceptor has some seriously snazzy markings and custom styling going on.

75241 Action Battle Echo Base Defense – $59.99 – 504 pcs

This Echo Base is LEGO’s first Star Wars “Action Battle” set which includes projectiles and specific targets incorporated into the set. The set also comes with a small scale AT-AT Walker, two Snowtroopers, three Rebel Troopers, and an Imperial Probe Droid.

The targets look like they’ll spring action mechanisms when struck by the projectiles, adding some great play value to these battle sets. Minifigures will go tumbling, equipment will pop apart, and, unfortunately for the Rebellion, the Imperials will probably overrun Echo Base and chase the Rebels off Hoth.

75239 Action Battle Hoth Generator Attack – $29.99 – 235 pcs

The second Star Wars “Action Battle” set is an extension of the first Echo Base set that comes with a shield generator and a laser cannon, both with projectiles and targets, and a Rebel Trooper and Snowtrooper.

Whoever set up the Toy Fair display has maybe got a little confused over which faction goes where when it comes to the defense of Hoth. I’m pretty sure the Rebel Trooper should be guarding the Shield Generator, and the Imperial Snowtrooper should be manning the Laser Cannon. But hey, maybe this set could mark the start of whole new alternate timeline in LEGO Star Wars?

75238 Action Battle Endor Assault – $29.99 – 193 pcs

The third Star Wars “Action Battle” set is based on Endor and comes with Wicket and a miniature Ewok Village treehouse, as well as a Scout Trooper and a small-scale 74-Z speeder bike.

75236 Duel on Starkiller Base – $19.99 – 191 pcs

This set features Rey and Kylo Ren’s lightsaber battle on the snowy Starkiller Base from The Force Awakens. The set pivots open to simulate the breaking and separating ground from the iconic scene.

Kylo has his signature cross-blade lightsaber, whilst Rey wields both Luke’s old lightsaber and a stud-shooter blaster. Sadly there doesn’t appear to be any sign of any special edition “Unconscious Finn” minifigure lying in the snow.

  1. Tie Intercepted

    Dang, from the thumbnailI thought we were getting a decent TIE Interceptor. Been a while since we got one and both that and the Bomber are obvious holes in my collection.

  2. Norman

    Neat idea with the Action sets. Prices definitely went up, likely in response to some financial issues. I’ll likely wait for a sale, and if they don’t go on sale, pass.
