LEGO Star Wars 2021 set details confirmed?

Possible confirmation of some of next year’s LEGO Star Wars sets has appeared online.

Rumours of the January 2021 wave first surfaced in September, with simplified versions of classic starfighters reportedly in the mix. Brickset has added the names of six of these sets to its database, apparently confirming their validity:

75295 Millennium Falcon Microfighter
75297 Resistance X-wing
75298 Tauntaun vs AT-AT Microfighters
75300 TIE Fighter
75301 Red 5 X-wing
75302 Imperial Shuttle

The site lists 75297 Resistance X-wing as a 4+ set, which tallies with earlier rumours. The latter three models, meanwhile, are said to be cheaper, less part-intensive versions of the iconic Star Wars ships. According to Promobricks, the aim is to make these key vehicles more accessible to kids.

Considering the most recent X-wing, 75273 Poe Dameron’s X-wing Fighter, clocks in at a blistering £89.99, that’s no bad thing. We’ll just have to wait and see how it pans out in reality, given the rumoured reduced piece count. Brickset hasn’t listed any quantities alongside the sets, but you can check out the previously-rumoured counts here.

While the database also hasn’t named any of the other sets, their tags could provide clues to their identity. 75303, for example, is tagged “Ultimate Collector Series”. Could this be the Republic Gunship that won this year’s fan poll, and is currently “deep in development”?

75296 is also tagged as another Microfighters set, suggesting there’s more than just yet another Millennium Falcon and the Tauntaun vs AT-AT two-pack to look forward to. Finally, 75299 is tagged “The Mandalorian”. That corresponds with word received by Brick Fanatics, which indicates the set will be based on a “Hero Transporter”.

Remember, even with Brickset’s listings, these are all still just rumours. And they should therefore be treated as such, at least until confirmed by the LEGO Group.

In other 2021 news, Brickset has also provided more credibility to rumours of next year’s LEGO Art sets.

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.
