LEGO Star Wars: Seven new The Last Jedi sets and four new buildable figures have been released
The embargo has lifted, it’s Force Friday II and we can finally reveal all of the brand new LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets. In total there are seven playsets and four new buildable figures.
Before we dive into the new LEGO Star Wars sets you should check out all of the special offers LEGO UK is running during the Force Friday promotion which runs from today until Sunday. Equally if you’ve been under a rock you should check out the full official reveal of the upcoming UCS Millennium Falcon set.
Back to Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets and there’s a good selection of vehicles in this release, which has me excited alongside new minifigures but what is clearly lacking are any standard system sets for £30 or under. The cheapest of the new system sets is £39.99 with the most expensive sets being £129.99. We may not have system sets for under £30 but at least the buildable figures are all £19.99.
Nevertheless have a look through the new sets and their descriptions below, which we’ve linked through to their shop.lego.com pages with our affiliate links. Please consider using them to support our efforts at The Nerd Recites.
