Official Pictures of 75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon

The Millennium Falcon that we all know and love has a new/old look in the Han Solo standalone film. It’s more colourful and has a much different front.

Overnight LEGO revealed official pictures of their take on the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon. I must admit it looks pretty good.

Kessel Run Millennium Falcon Product Detail

There were five minifigures revealed although there may be more in the set. There is of course young Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando, Qi’ra and a red droid that I don’t know the name of.

You can see the rest of the images in the gallery below. What do you think of this take on the Falcon? Will you be picking it up when it’s released in April?

LEGO Star Wars Make & Take At Myer

Myer MakeTake First Order Ass Walker

Over the weekend Myer sent out an email for a LEGO Star Wars Make & Take event. It seems that there was a technical glitch and they are asking people to re-register for the event. If you didn’t get a chance to register earlier or did register and want to make sure you get a place you can do so via this link.

The event will take place on Saturday September 30th.

You will be able to build the LEGO Star Wars First Order Assault Walker and take it home for free.

Hurry these events always fill quickly.

Rogue Friday Offer From LEGO Online

Last year Force Friday was a major event. There were midnight launches and a heap of excitement.

This year we have Rogue Friday, and things are a lot more subdued – including the Australian online LEGO store’s promotion.

You’ll get a free First Order Storm Trooper minifigure with all LEGO Star Wars Orders.

That’s right – to celebrate the launch of the Rogue One product line LEGO are giving away a minifigure from a different film.

It’s also worth mentioning that while some regions are getting triple VIP points, that doesn’t seem to be the case in Australia.

If you are after the Rogue One sets I think 20% Off at Myer trumps a free minifigure.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Announced

LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens Game

The Force Awakens is undoubtedly a massive hit and if the availability of some sets is an indication then The Force Awakens LEGO sets are also a hit. It doesn’t really come as a surprise then to learn that a new LEGO Star Wars game based on the new film will be coming out in June this year.

The LEGO Star Wars games are some of the most popular LEGO games produced and a new entry in the series is exciting for fans. The launch trailer gives plenty of hints that the game will feature the humour that has become a trademark of the game.

As well as retelling the story of the film the game will also include exclusive new story levels that takes place between Star WarsReturn of the Jedi and the new film. There is a great lineup of playable characters including Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and BB-8, as well as Kylo Ren, General Hux and Captain Phasma.

The game will be released in Australian on June 29 2016 and will be available for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, 3DS, PS4, Wii U, PS Vita and PC.

UPDATE: EB Games will be selling a Deluxe Edition of the game (for PS4 and Xbox One) that comes with an exclusive Finn minifigure. Both versions are available for pre-order now. Also at EB Games - all pre-order customers will receive a Star Destroyer polybag. [Thanks JigglePhysx for sharing that in the comments]

Check out the launch trailer and official press release below.

Review: 75099 Rey’s Speeder

75099 Rey Thumb

The new Star Wars Force Awakens LEGO sets are now available (although with all the coverage I’m going to assume you knew that). After braving the midnight Toys R Us crowds I am going to take a look at the cheapest of the new sets.

75099 Rey’s Speeder

RRP $39.99
193 Pieces ($0.20 per piece)
Available online and most retailers.

When I first saw a list of The Force Awakens set names I went back and watched the teaser trailers looking for hints as to what those sets may be. Sure we all know what an X-Wing looks like, but I’m more interested in new additions to th Star Wars universe. After re-watching those few seconds of Rey taking off into the desert on the back of her speeder the LEGO version jumped to the top of my wish list. It would fair to say I was hoping this set would be good when I grabbed it off the shelf at midnight.

The box is reasonably sized for the part count. The front of the box features a nice action scene of Rey taking off and leaving the unnamed thug behind. The rear is a little more interesting with a look at the included accessories and insets showing off the play features such as the stud shooters and the opening sides. The rear also includes an x-ray/schematic type drawing of the completed model.

Inside the box there are two numbered bags, an instruction booklet and small sticker sheet. As somebody that doesn’t apply the stickers to models, I would have liked if there were some more printed elements in the set.

Surprisingly bag one does not include the titular Rey, but rather the grey cloaked “Unkar’s Thug”.

LEGO Super Star Destroyer Gets Smashed

Super Star Destroyer Destroyed

There doesn’t seem to be a lot of LEGO news around at the moment, so let’s all just take a moment to watch something crazy.

Wired had a team of people build the huge 10221 Super Star Destroyer set for the sole purpose of smashing it. While Bricking Around certainly doesn’t condone the destruction of LEGO, the high speed footage they captured does look pretty cool.

We’d love to know how many pieces were actually damaged.
