New rumours suggest that a Solo: A Star Wars Story based LEGO set will be a Wal*Mart exclusive.
The number of LEGO Star Wars playsets are on the increase, and frequently living up to the same standard as the vehicle based sets. Now, Rebelscum reveals rumoured information and a product page that suggests a new set will be either a location set on Hoth or a scene based on Solo: A Star Wars Story.
According to the information available, set number 75203 will be a shared exclusive between Wal*Mart and shop.LEGO.com. The price is expected to be $29.99 with an August 1 release date. A Wal*Mart product page lists the set name as ‘Conf Hoth Scene’ – this is clearly a placeholder, but it is it a temporary name that will be replaced with something like ‘Attack on Hoth’, or is it designed to hide that the set is based on Solo: A Star Wars Story?
The information from Rebelscum suggests the latter, with it looking like the set will depict Chewbacca being captured or held captive on Kashyyyk. The rumours suggest this as the set is described as an environment with trees and a trench, incorporating exploding features. Minifigures in the set are listed as a Mudtrooper, Chewbacca and an Imperial Officer. A handcuff accessory will be included for Chewie and a new reversible stubble/injured head for the Imperial.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released on May 24. The LEGO Star Wars sets based on the film are available now at shop.LEGO.com.
