News of a Mando-themed addition to the Microfighter line-up – conspicuous only by its absence at this stage – first emerged earlier this month, pointing to a $9.99 set with a Beskar Mando minifigure. Instagram user lego_club_news has now published more details on 75321 Razor Crest Microfighter, claiming the set will include a ‘new type of shooter’.
Stud shooters have been ubiquitous across the LEGO Star Wars range – particularly in battle packs and Microfighters – since their introduction in 2014, but between this news and other reports suggesting they won’t be included in January 2022’s rumoured 75320 Hoth Battle Pack, it now sounds like they may be on their way out for good.
There’s no word yet on what exactly the new shooting mechanism will involve, but even if it does replace the classic stud shooter, it probably won’t be the only LEGO missile on the market: spring-loaded shooters, which also debuted in 2014, are likely to still be going strong in 2022.
All the information surrounding 75321 Razor Crest Microfighter – including any new shooter pieces – is all just rumoured at this stage, so treat it with caution until confirmed otherwise by the LEGO Group.
