LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz 40539 Ahsoka Tano revealed

The long-awaited 150th LEGO BrickHeadz has finally arrived, and as rumoured, it’s based on Star Wars’ Ahsoka Tano.

More specifically, it’s Ahsoka as she appeared in Season 7 of The Clone Wars, matching her minifigure in 75283 Armored Assault Tank and this year’s 75310 Duel on Mandalore. Comprising 164 pieces, 40539 Ahsoka Tano is the result of a LEGO Ideas vote to choose the theme for the 150th BrickHeadz statue.

Star Wars beat Minecraft, Lilo & Stitch and Jaws to come top in that poll, but we didn’t know which character the LEGO Group would choose from a galaxy far, far away – until now. 40539 Ahsoka Tano will launch January 1, alongside five other LEGO Star Wars sets, and will retail for £9.99 in the UK, $9.99 in the US and €9.99 in Europe.

Ahsoka’s Clone Wars outfit wasn’t the LEGO Group’s only option, and given the ex-Jedi has more recently appeared in The Mandalorian, it’s pretty surprising the designers didn’t go with Rosario Dawson’s live-action portrayal. On the other hand, we’re yet to get a minifigure of Ahsoka from the Disney+ show, so this BrickHeadz better matches the current LEGO line-up.

Two other Star Wars sets have also been revealed today, in the form of 40557 Defence of Hoth and 40558 Clone Trooper Command Station.

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.
