The LEGO Group has confirmed that the LEGO Star Wars 20 Years range of sets will be released in April.
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.
