First look at LEGO Star Wars Dark Falcon, TIE Wing and X-Fighter in hand

Take a first look at the brand new LEGO Star Wars Dark Falcon, TIE Wing and X-Fighter in hand, thanks to some very cool images snapped by a toy photographer.

The LEGO Group sent out its first two LEGO Star Wars: Rebuild the Galaxy sets to toy photographer Shundeez ahead of their official reveal yesterday, which meant the shutterbug had images ready to go in time for their unveiling. The official LEGO Facebook page has now shared those snaps to its 15 million followers, giving us all a first impression of the new ships in hand.

Those include 75389 The Dark Falcon and 75393 TIE Fighter & X-Wing Mash-up. The ships in the latter set are designed to be quickly reassembled into a TIE Wing and X-Fighter, inspired by Uglies from Star Wars Legends, and these shots give us our best look yet at the results. For their part, Shundeez says that the wings are ‘really easy to swap out’.

Their shots of the Dark Falcon show off its minifigures and interior, meanwhile, taking the action to Tatooine (where else?) with its sandy plains and twin suns. Darth Rey notably has a regular lightsaber hilt here for her double blades, suggesting an additional piece could be included in the set to represent her hinged hilt fully opened (alongside a pair of binoculars for when it’s hinged shut).

This is also our best look so far at Jedi Vader, which reimagines Star Wars’ most iconic baddie in white armour – a nod to the Star Wars Infinities comic that saw Vader paint his armour post-redemption. If you’re going to convince the galaxy you’re a good guy again, you’ve got to look the part.

75389 The Dark Falcon and 75393 TIE Fighter & X-Wing Mash-up are both available to pre-order now ahead of their August 1 release. A third LEGO Star Wars: Rebuild the Galaxy set, 75388 Jedi Bob’s Starfighter, is now also confirmed to be on the way. The Disney+ special will debut on September 13.

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.
