This year marks 20 years since the release of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and the launch of the LEGO Star Wars theme. A wave of sets celebrating the milestone was recently announced and was rumoured for an April launch, with the information now confirmed. The Brick Fan has highlighted a page in the Australian catalogue that states that the sets will launch in April.
It was rumoured by Brick Fanatics last year that a range of commemorative sets would include yellow faced minifigures in a nod to the original LEGO Star Wars sets. Since then, more rumours have cropped up suggesting that two of the sets will be 75258 Anakin’s Podracer – 20th Anniversary Edition and 75243 Slave I – 20th Anniversary Edition.
Star Wars: Episode IX will be released in cinemas on December 20, 2019.
