Toy Fair kicked off bright and early this morning at the Javits Center courtesy of LEGO. Prior to the show floor opening up, we got to attend a special LEGO preview event to get a first look at the new products hitting stores over the next few months. There was a wide variety of lines featured in the booth, but the one that took up the most shelf space was definitely the Star Wars products.
The highlight was the 2,144-piece Assault on Hoth set featuring Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Toryn Farr, Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles and K-3PO minifigures but if you’re on the hunt for something The Force Awakens specific, there are loads of options including the new buildable figures and sets like Battle on Takodana with Maz Kanata. LEGO also brought some Rebels options as well including the TIE Advanced Prototype and Wookie Gunship building sets.
You can check out images and product descriptions of the aforementioned sets and much more below.
The debut of Star Wars buildable figures last year continues with six new buildable figures, available now, based on the characters Rey, First Order Stormtrooper, Poe Dameron, Finn, Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma. Additional buildable figures will be unveiled throughout the year. Figures range from $19.99-$29.99.
Fans of Star Wars: The Force Awakens can bring scenes and characters from the 2015 blockbuster home with eight new film-inspired building sets. Five are available now, one launches in March and two follow in June. More than 10 characters from the film are represented in minifigure form for the first time through the collection, including First Order Snowtroopers (First Order Snowspeeder), Resistance Troopers (Resistance Trooper Battle Pack), Maz Kanata (Battle on Takodana), Admiral Ackbar and General Leia Organa (Resistance Troop Transporter). Assortment prices range from $9.99-$79.99.
Five new LEGO construction sets inspired by the Disney XD animated series, Star Wars Rebels, launch in March, and three more follow in June. For a quick build loaded with action and a unique LEGO minifigure, fans can choose from The Ghost™, TIE Advanced Prototype™, Wookiee™ Gunship or AT-DP™ building sets, or they can build Kanan’s Speeder Bike construction toy, complete with three minifigures. Set prices range from $9.99 – $119.99.
Experienced builders can recreate the Rebel Force’s Echo Base from Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back in an unbelievably detailed recreation of one of the most iconic scenes in the original Star Wars trilogy. The 2,144-piece building set inspires fans to build their own scouting missions with the Snowspeeder, armed with twin spring-loaded shooters, and get back to base on the speeder bike to help Luke, Han and the other Rebel heroes. The modular design enables fans to customize their Rebel base configuration, including a Wampa cave and Wampa figure. The set features LEGO minifigure versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Toryn Farr, Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles, K-3PO, and more. Available May 1 for $249.99.
