shop.LEGO.com has launched LEGO Star Wars 75253 BOOST Droid Commander in the USA ahead of the expected release date. The set, that builds three droids that can be coded to go on various missions, can be ordered now from the official LEGO online shop.
This set will build three different iconic droids from Star Wars – R2-D2, the Gonk Droid and the Mouse Droid. As well as the 1,177 bricks to build the models, the set includes a sensor, motor and Move Hub. Once constructed, the special Star Wars software will allow users to code and play, with 40 different missions to send the droids on.
“We’ve been fuelling the imagination of young Padawans and Jedi Masters for twenty years and wanted to take the Force to a new level,” said Julia Goldin, LEGO Chief Marketing Office, when the product was announced back in May.
Fans outside of the USA will have to sit tight and wait to see if the set will be launched on September 1, or be released earlier.
