LEGO Star Wars: Seven new Star Wars vehicle and playsets released from across the expanded universe
LEGO adds seven new Star Wars playsets and vehicles to it’s summer line up of releases. We have three releases inspired by the films namely Revenge of the Sith and The Force Awakens, two releases from the Star Wars: Rebels series and ahead of it’s release we have two more sets from the upcoming animated series Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures.
Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is an all-new animated series set between Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. This fun filled series will introduce all-new heroes and villains in exciting new adventures whilst featuring many familiar Star Wars Characters
There are some very exciting sets in this summer release of Star Wars LEGO for instance the Captain Rex’s AT-TE set is a solid all around vehicle with lots of little details and points of curiosity that help it to stand out from your usual grey Star Wars vehicle. I’m also excited about the new StarScavenger set from the upcoming Freemaker Adventures series, it has a detachable mini ship in the middle and plenty of moving parts. We actually have a StarScavenger set to build so will be putting up a review of it in the next few days.
