I’m not much of a video game player, so when a BD droid showed up in The Book of Boba Fett and the internet lost its collective mind, I was playing catch-up. The droid was cute, sure, but what was the big deal? It turns out these adorable chicken-legged droids are a major part of the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game. BD-1, in particular, is an explorer droid who serves the Jedi Master Eno Cordova during the Galactic Republic. And now he can serve as a display piece in your home thanks to LEGO’s 75335 BD-1, a 1,062-piece set arriving August 1st for US $99.99 | CAN $129.99 | UK £89.99

Poland’s Jan T. has built an icy LEGO recreation of Ilum from Star Wars: Fallen Order and it’s an action-packed stage with a story to tell!
I have to admit I’ve never played the game but this model caught my eye for its boundary-breaking snowy clumps hanging off the edge of the edges of the scene. The stark gray face of the Imperial lair utilizes interesting paneling and some absolutely gorgeous cutaways reveal piping running through the walls. I also love the probe droid floating menacingly nearby.
Not content with only half the action, Jan has also included a backside to the stout Imperial fortress wall complete with an adorable little BD-1 hacking into a security droid.
