It was recently rumoured that a buildable Porg would be joining the LEGO Star Wars theme this year, with little detail beyond that other than it is expected to be similar to last year’s 75187 BB-8. Now, Rebelscum has shared information from Sir von Lego at Eurobricks that provides a possible set number and release window.
According to the reliable rumour monger’s information, the set number will be 75230 and this buildable beast will be released in October, priced at €69.99. That would put 75230 at a similar size to 75187 BB-8.
The only puzzling thing about this information is that no LEGO Star Wars launch is expected in October. Sets were released in January, more are expected on April 20 for Solo: A Star Wars Story and then the last batch for the year is expected in June 1. Even the advent calendars tend to arrive around August time, so October would be a real outlier. If the information proves accurate, perhaps this will be a direct to consumer exclusive, or exclusive to a specific retail chain.
This information should be treated as rumour until confirmed by the LEGO Group, or more realistically, until the set turns up on shop shelves. In the meantime, you can always build a little Porg using this handy Brick Fanatics guide.
