Recently, some of the upcoming Summer/Winter sets got announced, with only a few details and no pictures (that I have seen anyways). In this post I’m going to list them and give some thoughts, I’m going to skip over any without details of which there are a few.
May is bringing us a handful of sets, most of which seem to be aimed at the older audience with the ‘Death Star Trench Run’ which will have 666 pieces and be priced at around £60.
Next up is the 1000 piece ‘Training on Dagobah’. I’m going to assume this will feature Yoda’s Hut in a bigger scale than the play set from a couple of years ago and probably some of the training scenarios Luke goes through on Dagobah… or it could be the ‘cave’ scene where he confronts the vision of Darth Vader.
The May UCS set is the long rumoured ‘Luke’s Landspeeder’ set. Priced at around £200 it will come with Luke and C-3PO Mini-Figs. At least it this will stop them from bringing out yet another Landspeeder play set for a while (I hope).
Only one set is slated to release in June, and it’s one that I am incredibly excited for! Mando’s N1 Starfighter, coming with Din Djarin, Peli Motto, Grogu and Peli’s BD Droid. All I can say is “take my money!”
This is a big month. Lego have saved the 20th Anniversary Celebration for ‘Attack of the Clones’ for the summer and, in my opinion we’re getting spoilt.
First up, with 282 pieces and at around £30 is ‘Obi-Wan’s Jedi Starfighter’. This is a MUST HAVE for me, 20 years ago this was the one and only Lego Set from ‘Attack of the Clones’ that I got and I freaking loved it. I didn’t buy the ‘Jedi Starfighter with Hyperspace Ring’ a few years back, mainly because I didn’t like the look of the Ring and been waiting patiently for the Starfighter itself to come out again. It comes with Obi-Wan and Taun We Mini-Figs.
One of the other sets I’m really looking forward to is the rumoured 924 piece AT-TE. Oh hells yeah, I’ve wanted one of these ever since I missed out on the ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ version so this is once again a must-have and at around £100 it’s a decent price.
We’ll be getting another large scale set, and whilst it’s not been revealed, it’s being heavily rumoured to be a play set scale Republic Gunship. Once again a must-have.
There are a couple of non-‘Attack of the Clones’ sets, firstly, a large scale, 1022 piece ‘Cad Bane’s Ship’, which, whilst not featured in ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ and will probably be based on its appearance in ‘The Bad Batch’, will be a great way of picking up the Cad Bane Mini-Fig this year, unless of course they have him in one of the unnamed sets.
We will also be getting a new buildable Droid, based on ‘Jedi: Fallen Order’, the one and only BD-1. I need to see pictures before I decide but I’m excited for this.
Only one set for September, and like most years it’s the ‘Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar’. It’s rumoured to come with Luke, C-3PO and R2-D2.
There are a handful of unnamed sets scattered throughout these dates, I’m hoping for more ‘Book of Boba Fett’ sets, there has been a rumour about a brick-built Rancor for Boba to ride on so maybe an updated ‘Rancor Pit’ to go along the ‘Boba Fett’s Throne Room’ set. The large scale ‘Master Builder’ set is looking to be around £500, so it’s probably going to be huge, a rumour has been for a Geonosis Arena but only time will tell in that one.
Whatever happens though, with just these announced sets, 2022 is looking to be an exciting Lego year.
