Force Friday is finally here and with it, comes a host of brand new and exciting Star Wars toys and collectibles ahead of Rogue One’s release this December. Most excitingly for myself comes the arrival of brand new LEGO Star Wars sets based on the characters and events of Rogue One.

The LEGO gods have gifted us with five brand new LEGO play sets and three LEGO buildable figures to bolster our Star Wars collections further this Force Friday. The five play sets range from £79.99 to £29.99, a rather affordable offering and all of the buildable figures have an RRP of just £19.99. You can find box art, RRPs and descriptions for all of the new release below.

Without a doubt K-2SO to be a guaranteed fan favourite and as such his buildable figure and the minifigure from the Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle play set are going to be hot items this holiday season. Anyway wishing to gift either of these sets should buy early to avoid disappointment.

It must be said the K-2SO buildable figure looks exactly like his on screen companion, in much the same way the General Grievous buildable figure did. Exceptional work from LEGO, well done.

Check out the new LEGO Star Wars sets below and let us know in the comments which of the new releases have sparked your interest!

 

Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle (#75156 RRP £79.99)

Raise the landing skids, lower the wings for flight mode and set off on another dangerous mission. Includes five minifigures: Pao, Director Krennic, Bohdi Rook, Imperial Death Trooper and K-2SO.
