A new LEGO Star Wars polybag, 40288 BB-8, has been revealed in a new image.
Brickset has shared an image of the upcoming LEGO Star Wars set, 40288 BB-8. This new, buildable version of the little droid is reminiscent of 30617 R2-D2 and is expected to be released as a promotional polybag.
It looks like the new build will use printed pieces, that are pretty specific to the lovable sequel trilogy character – but talented LEGO fans will surely be putting them to other use as soon as the set is available. The polybag for May 4 has not yet been announced, so 40288 BB-8 could be showing up for the annual promotional weekend, or at another time entirely.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released on May 24. The LEGO Star Wars sets based on the film will launch on April 20. The current range of LEGO Star Wars sets are available at shop.LEGO.com.
