LEGO Star Wars 2023 set redesigns a Star Wars Celebration exclusive

LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Star Wars 75344 Boba Fett’s Starship Microfighter isn’t the first time the LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Group has released Slave I at this scale – and is technically a redesign of a convention-exclusive set.

While the LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Star Wars Microfighters range has been alive and kicking since 2014 – when a total of six different sets appeared on shelves within 12 months – it’s taken a full nine years for the LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Group to bring Boba Fett’s Slave I to the assortment. For a ship that’s otherwise had countless different iterations at minifigure scale, microscale and even an Ultimate Collector Series set, that’s pretty surprising.

But it’s maybe a little less surprising when you consider that the company had technically already produced a Slave I Microfighter – it just wasn’t called that, because it actually preceded the introduction of the chibi-style sets by two years. Only available at Star Wars Celebration in 2012, CELEBVI Mini Slave I scaled down the Firespray-class ship to a size slightly bigger than traditional mini LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Star Wars sets, and therefore still able to accommodate a minifigure.

It was arguably the template for the Microfighters, which were still a couple of years away at this point, and was accompanied in the same year by COMCON019 Sith Infiltrator, another Microfighter-style set available only at San Diego Comic-Con. We didn’t get a wide-release Microfighter of Darth Maul’s ship until 2019, in 75224 Sith Infiltrator Microfighter, and so too has it taken a good long while for the Slave I to get its due within this range.

Finally, though, 75344 Boba Fett’s Starship Microfighter will bring a revamped and redesigned version of that Star Wars Celebration exclusive to the masses, complete with a minifigure based on the character’s appearance in The Book of Boba Fett. You’ll be able to buy yours from January 1 for £8.99 / $9.99 / €9.99, which is much more agreeable than the aftermarket price for CELEBVI Mini Slave I.

For a more immediate journey into Slave I territory, 75312 Boba Fett’s Starship is available right now.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
