The First Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lego Set Has Been Revealed

By Andrew Liszewski on at

San Diego Comic-Con has established itself as one of the premiere opportunities for film studios to reveal merchandise connected to upcoming blockbuster films. So just ahead of SDCC 2015, Entertainment Weekly got a glimpse of some exclusive The Force Awakens toys, including Lego’s new Buildable First Order Stormtrooper.

The set is another in Lego’s Buildable line, featuring 81 pieces that assemble into a super-posable nine-inch tall figure that comes complete with a blaster and some kind of side-arm weapon. Unfortunately it won’t actually be available for purchase at Comic-Con, only on display. Fans will have to wait until January 1st, 2016 to buy one, so, yeah, what a terrible tease.
