LEGO Star Wars is introducing a new 18+ set to the theme, with 75294 Bespin Duel revealed on the Toys R Us Canada website, where it will be an exclusive product. Elsewhere in the world it is expected to be exclusive to other retailers.
The Canadian price is $49.94, but the price elsewhere has not yet been announced. No release date is confirmed at this stage.
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 very playable model.
Here is the official product description:
