Promobricks claims that 75332 AT-ST will be a 4+ set, however, distinguishing itself from the more detailed 75322 Hoth AT-ST. Where that set includes 586 pieces for £44.99 / $49.99 / €49.99, the newer model will reportedly contain just 87 pieces for €29.99, which is a slightly higher price-per-piece ratio than previous 4+ sets.
Intended as a gateway between DUPLO and regular System builds, the 4+ line – which is a rebranded version of what used to be known as Juniors – has incorporated Star Wars for a few years now, with sets like 75268 Snowspeeder and 75297 Resistance X-wing delivering simple builds that use basic, large elements.
75332 AT-ST will presumably follow suit, which will allow it to sit on shelves alongside 75322 Hoth AT-ST by targeting completely different audiences. Promobricks also suggests that the new set is likely to be based on the walker from Return of the Jedi rather than The Empire Strikes Back, with Endor-related scenery to match.
For most LEGO Star Wars fans, this may be the least interesting of all the sets rumoured for summer 2022 – but that’s also partly because the rest of them sound so enticing. Also on the list for August 1, when the new AT-ST is expected to arrive, are sets based on Attack of the Clones, The Bad Batch and Jedi: Fallen Order.
Remember that these are all just rumours for now, however, and should be treated lightly until we receive official confirmation from the LEGO Group.
