LEGO Star Wars 75294 Bespin Duel coming on September 1

Originally intended for the now cancelled Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, LEGO Star Wars 75294 Bespin Duel will arrive on September 1.

LEGO Star Wars 75294 Bespin Duel, a new 18+ set revealed in August, will be available at LEGO.com and presumably LEGO Stores too. The Brick Fan shares a catalogue page showing that it will be priced at $39.99.

75294 Bespin Duel recreates the epic duel between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, where the Dark Lord revealed his familial connection to his son. It is rumoured to have been intended as an exclusive for Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, the convention that has been cancelled as a result of the global pandemic.

Bizarrely, the 295 piece set has been labeled as 18+, encouraging children to steer clear of what looks to be a model that would be great for play as well as display.

Here is an extract from the official product description:
