The Clone Wars era of Star Wars has been a subject of great interest to fans since Old Ben Kenobi first told a young Luke Skywalker about a time when Kenobi fought alongside Luke’s father. The prequel trilogy teased fans with the start and end of the war but left a pretty big gap in between. This year marks the 20-year anniversary of our first glimpse of what happened during the Clone Wars in the form of an animated series that aired on the Cartoon Network in 2003. Long-time fans of the 2008 animated series created by Dave Filoni will be very excited with the latest characters to join the LEGO Star Wars helmet series: Commander Cody and Captain Rex.
The 2008 Clone Wars animated series, which is now streaming on Disney+ included many episodes where these two clone troopers teamed up with Obi-wan Kenobi and Anakin on several missions. Many of the series episodes aired out of order, but Cody and Rex both first appeared chronologically in Season 1, episode 16 titled The Hidden Enemy, which aired on February 6, 2009. Commander Cody has appeared in the new series Star Wars: The Bad Batch. Captain Rex has appeared on Star Wars: Rebels, and Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
LEGO 75349 Captain Rex comes with 854 pieces and 75350: Clone Commander Cody includes 766 pieces. Both will be available on March 1 for US $69.99 | CAN $89.99 | UK £59.99 and US $69.99 | CAN $89.99 | UK £59.99 respectively.
