Star Wars is one of LEGO’s most lucrative licenses, and the company should have a very happy holiday season. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens LEGO sets and pricing have been leaked, and it’s all vehicles, at least for this first batch. The sets range at the low end with Rey’s Speeder costing $19.99 and having 193 pieces all the way up to the one that’s sure to be in high demand, the new Millennium Falcon, which costs $149.99 and has 1332 pieces. That’s 78 more pieces than the latest model. Hopefully, it will be more fun to build. The previous model (7965, if you want to be nerdy and specific) has a cool interior, but it’s very redundant. You just keep building the back curve pieces and then you move on to the doors on the top. Of course, it will be interesting to see if this new Millennium Falcon has any new tricks up its sleeve.
From a plot perspective, it’s interesting that there aren’t any “new ships”. By that I mean there’s no “Q-wing” or something like that. It’s classics like the X-Wing, and TIE Fighter, and these don’t qualify spoilers. We saw those in the trailer, and I’m eager to see how they differ from previously released LEGO sets.
