LEGO Star Wars 75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers set revealed

A new LEGO Star Wars set has been revealed – 75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers.

The LEGO Group has revealed a brand new LEGO Star Wars set, 75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers. The set uses 285 pieces and will launch on August 1, priced at £24.99.

75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers includes elements to build an AT-RT and Speeder Bike in the distinctive colour scheme of Anakin Skywalker’s 501st troopers. Four Clone Trooper minifigures are included along with two Battle Droids.

The AT-RT is similar to the once included in 75261 Clone Scout Walker – 20th Anniversary Edition (review). Given all of the trans-red studs in the set, it looks like there will be plenty of stud shooter elements included.

The five largest ever LEGO Star Wars sets

501st troopers appear in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, storming the Jedi Temple during Order 66. They also feature in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, led by Captain Rex.

Three new LEGO Star Wars sets were recently announced and are open for pre-orders now – 75277 Boba Fett Helmet, 75276 Stormtrooper Helmet and 75274 TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet.

Images of LEGO Star Wars 75292 The Razor Crest and LEGO Star Wars 75287 D-O also recently turned up online.
