Check Out the First Official STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS LEGO
We got our first official look at a LEGO set from Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Thursday. Entertainment Weekly revealed the Buildable First Order Stormtrooper, a brick-built battle figure.
This is no minifig. Lego’s Buildable First Order Stormtrooper has 81 separate pieces that can be assembled into one 9-inch figure with posable limbs.
It will be on display only at Comic-Con, and fans will have to wait until January 1, 2016 to purchase their own. If this one seems a little short for a Stormtrooper, Lego promises its booth will feature a life-sized recreation of a First Order soldier assembled entirely from its traditional toy bricks.
Still no official look at actual LEGO sets or minifigs from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Hopefully we'll get those before Force Friday on Sept. 4. The fact that the Buildable First Order Stormtrooper doesn't hit stores until Jan. 1, 2016, gives some credibility to the rumor that there's a second wave of The Force Awakens LEGO sets on the way in the new year.
This First Order Stormtrooper joins a growing legion of LEGO Star Wars constraction sets. By the end of the year, battle builds of Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous, Clone Commander Cody and Jango Fett will be available.
