Mystery LEGO Star Wars set revealed

The identity of LEGO.com’s mysterious new LEGO Star Wars set has been revealed.

The strange set appeared on LEGO.com in Germany on Thursday, with no image and a not-very-catchy placeholder name: 5005341 LEGO SW 1ST ORDER STORM GLOBAL 1. A handful of fans managed to order the mystery €14.99 product before it vanished from LEGO.com, and it’s now arrived with StoneWars reader Matthias.

Unfortunately, the reality isn’t quite as exciting as we’d imagined. What turned up at Matthias’s door was a First Order Stormtrooper Key Light, which makes sense given the placeholder name, but is also pretty underwhelming. After all, the LEGO accessory actually launched all the way back in 2016. Why it suddenly appeared on LEGO.com is anyone’s guess.

Here’s Matthias’s photo of his disappointing delivery, with a Baby Yoda BrickHeadz for scale.

Consider this mystery solved, and be grateful you weren’t the one dropping €14.99 to figure it out. Instead, spend your money on LEGO Star Wars sets that you actually want, like the newly-released 75318 The Child. Or, keep in the Mando mood with 75292 The Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport.

A £100 / $100 spend at LEGO.com will currently net you a trio of bounties: a Han Solo in Carbonite key chainLEGO Hidden Side 30464 El Fuego’s Stunt Cannon, and LEGO MINDSTORMS 40413 Mini Robots.

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 @chriswharfe.
