Luke Skywalker exclusive minifigure has been revealed to be issued with the Deluxe Edition of the upcoming LEGO Star Wars : The Skywalker Saga to be available in 2021. The Skywalker Saga will adapt storylines from all nine movies from the entire series. The last LEGO Star Wars game, The Force Awakens was released four years ago in 2016 under the same developers and this will be the 6th game in to date released under the LEGO Star Wars series of game titles by TT Games.
The LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga was first announced in 2019 at E3, and based on the latest update, the game will be delayed for a release in Spring of 2021 after an original release date that was set for October 2020. A new set of Deluxe Edition Boxed set revealed by starwars.com features an exclusive Luke Skywalker minifigure drinking the famous blue bantha milk. His faceprint shows remnants of the blue milk around his upper lip and a milk carton that’s also unique on a 1×1 brick with a white cheese slope, featuring the print of a Bantha silhouette as opposed to the generic print of a cow on the current LEGO available elements.
The gameplay video was revealed yesterday by LEGO and is worth a watch. Even if you’re not a gamer, or have no intention to acquire the game eventually, it’s still a load of fun sitting through the two and a half minute video trailer. It shows the breadth and coverage over the 9 episodes and in usual LEGO humour and fun filled twists and surely to get a laugh or smile at the very least.
Look out for the special treat where Luke takes a sip from the delicious blue milk carton leaving him with a milk moustache.
The Deluxe Edition of the art cover will also feature a unique transparent slipcover that lifts the Darth Vader helmet to reveal LEGO Anakin’s face.
In addition to the exclusive minifigure, six DLC character pack is part of the collection bundle.
The game will be released on major platforms including the upcoming PS5 and also on PC, Mac, PS4, XBOX, and Nintendo Switch. TT Games is no strange to the LEGO games and will surely have the same look and feel that’s familiar and loved.
Check out some of the in-game stills that was captured from the video featuring familiar and famous scenes across the movie timelines from 1977 to 2019.
