Four new little LEGO Star Wars sets have turned up, that look likely to be Miniland exclusives.
In surprising images that were published by Minifig Price Guide and shared by Rebelscum, four new LEGO Star Wars sets have been revealed. They look to be inspired by Miniland figures, but are not at that scale. It is speculated that they will be LEGOLAND exclusive sets, tying in to the Star Wars Miniland Experience attraction. The four characters revealed so far are 6252812 Luke Skywalker, 6252810 Han Solo, 6252808 Chewbacca and 6252811 Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Brick Fanatics notes that the packaging for the sets, which lacks a barcode, makes them unlikely to be a gift with purchase or intended for sale. There are two likely scenarios that might see these sets distributed;
- LEGO Star Wars weekends are coming up at the LEGOLAND California Resort, where a goody bag is provided to AFOLs who exhibit a model during the event. As these are in clear bags with what will presumably turn out to be printed instructions, that fits the pattern of sets produced in a small quantity for a special purpose. FBTB arrange the fan display, for anyone who is interested in participating.
- Another possible purpose for these sets is as a make-and-take opportunity. Such builds do not tend to be in typical fancy packaging, but rather a clear bag with unclear contents. Particularly strict staff do not allow the bags to be taken away sealed, insisting that the bag is opened there and then. In recent years, though, such builds are in clear polybags with barcodes. So this may be a less likely possibility.
More information will be shared as soon as it is available.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released on May 24. The LEGO Star Wars sets based on the film are available now at shop.LEGO.com.
