WATCH: Rumoured LEGO Star Wars 2023 Clone Troopers could be game-changers

Three new LEGO Star Wars Clone Troopers are rumoured to be landing on shelves in January 2023, and they could be about to shake up the 501st Legion as we know it.


At the moment, our LEGO Star Wars 501st Legion Clone Trooper Phase II armies consist of precisely three different types of soldier: the standard units and Jet Troopers in 75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers, and for those of us lucky enough to own one, Captain Rex from 2013’s 75012 BARC Speeder with Sidecar. If recent reports are to be believed, however, those armies are set to expand in a big way in 2023.

That’s because a brand new 501st Legion battle pack is supposedly on the way next year, and given it’s hot on the heels of 75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers (which is due to retire this year), it’s safe to expect some variety in its minifigures. And indeed, the latest rumours indicate the LEGO Star Wars set will be drawing on decidedly different source material, as we’re diving into in our latest YouTube video.

You can also find out more about these new Clone Troopers – and why they could be game-changers for LEGO Star Wars – over on TikTok, if you prefer to consume your vertical video over there. Hit play below to check it out, and don’t forget to follow us to keep up to date with all our LEGO content.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.

    Hey, I love what you do! There is a minor mistake in this (WATCH: Rumoured LEGO Star Wars 2023 Clone Troopers could be game-changers) article though, it says that there are three variants of the 501st clone trooper, the regular one, the jet trooper, and Captain Rex. But there is also the 501st clone pilot, from the Z-95 headhunter set designated 75004, making a total of four variants besides the three received in the 75345 501st Clone Troopers Battle Pack. Just thought you should know 🙂
