Here Are All the Lego Star Wars Sets Arriving on 1st August

By Tom Pritchard on at

New seasons often mean new releases over at the Lego Company, and while the other brands seem to have most of their summer releases already, we've had to wait a bit for Star Wars to show us what's coming. We've seen some of them already, but here's everything arriving in a Galaxy Far Far Away on 1st August.

The Razor Crest, £120

First up is the ship from The Mandalorian, which we first saw back in February. With it comes a rendition of the title character's ship, the first Baby Yoda minifigure,  IG-11, Carl Weathers, and that Scout Trooper that punched our favourite alien baby because he's a douche.

It's got 1,023 pieces, carbonite elements, firing missiles, and a cockpit for Mando and his ward to hang out in.

AT-AT, £140

Next we have the AT-AT set first glimpsed back in May, designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. It comes with 1,267 pieces and six minifigures - Luke Skywalker,  General Veers, 2 AT-AT Drivers, and 2 Snowtroopers.

Also included is a cockpit with space for three minifigs, a speeder bike, a bottom hatch and winch for Luke to infiltrate, as well as fold-out panels so you can see inside.

501st Legion, £25

The final set we've seen before, which was announced back in April and sees the return of Clone Wars' 501st Legion return to brick form. A nice small set, this comes with three regular 501st troopers, one 501st jet trooper, two battle droid, as well as a miniature AT-RT walker and a BARC speeder. It has 285 pieces.

Advent Calendar, £25

The annual staple in the run up to Christmas is the Star Wars advent calendar, and from the looks of things this one is going to be a lot less shit than the past few years. We can't see everything yet, but here's a list of what we know about so far:

Rey, Rudolph the Red Nosed Tauntaun, a Stromtrooper, D-O with a santa hat, Darth Vader and Poe Dameron in Christmas sweaters, a porg, an x-wing, a TIE Striker, an A-Wing, the Millennium Falcon, Anakin's podracer, Darth Vader's castle, a snowman gonk droid, a Republic cruiser, a droid control ship, and Mandalorian's Razor Crest. There's also a code to unlock content in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

Anakin's Jedi Interceptor, £25

Anakin's Jedi Starfighter has been retired now, so it's time for a replacement: Anakin's other Jedi spaceship. It comes with pilot Anakin, R2-D2, a new-for-2020 design, and 248 pieces.

Armoured Assault Tank (AAT), £35

A separatist tank back from the Clone Wars, featuring 286 pieces, two battle droids, Ahsooka Tano, and a Clone Trooper with the orange 'Ahsoka' design that was used during the Siege of Mandalore arc.

Knights of Ren Transport Ship, £65

The biggest Star Wars disappointment since Jar Jar Binks, the Knights of Ren were teased and then ended up being glorified cannon fodder when Rise of Skywalker came along. Still even they get a Lego form, and now their transport ship is on the way.

The set features two of the Knights with brand new helmet designs, an additional Rey minifigure, and 595 pieces. It also comes with a cockpit section, a prison compartment, and two 'skis' that are supposed to create a hovering effect

General Grievous's Starfighter, £75

The final Clone Wars set for the current release wave, and it's kind of pricey. The 487 piece set comes with Grievous himself, retractable landing gear. plus minifigures of Obi Wan Kenobi and an Airborne Clone Trooper.

Death Star Final Duel, £90

The latest in Lego's recent trend of recreating scenes from inside the Death Stars is a redone version of Return of the Jedi's climactic duel in Palpatine's throne room. I guess it has Rise of Skywalker connections too if you want to trash the place a bit.

Included are Palpatine himself, Luke, Vader, two Royal Guards, collapsing stairs and bridge, a 'force jump' section, and the reactor shaft that was really stupidly put in a place where Vader could toss people down it. It's 775 pieces.

Resistance I-TS transport, £90

The first set based on Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge region, featuring a model of one of the Resistance ships that plays a role in what goes on there. Honestly I've never been, so I don't know anything about that bit of the park.

The 932 piece set come with two minfigures of  Lieutenant Bek and Vi Moradi, plus a black astromech droid and a Gonk droid. The op also slides open for interior play.
