However, they weren’t the only set reveals from Star Wars Celebration as a 2022 Advent Calendar has been confirmed. Darth Vader in a beach outfit with his castle recreated in the sand, taken from the upcoming seasonal set, was featured at the panel and even received a giant brick-built display. This is based on an upcoming special which was also revealed at Star Wars Celebration 2022.

However, you might have spotted the first official Omega minifigure from The Bad Batch in the short film. She’s rumoured to be included in a summer 2022 set, though there’s no confirmation that this digital minifigure will get a physical iteration in the future.
