Unfortunately, it’s not a brand new – and much-requested – rendition of old Sheev as he appears in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, all red-robed and reanimated, but the version that arrived in 2020’s


That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though, because it means you can pick up a minifigure previously walled off behind an £89.99 set – one that you probably won’t have been fussed about picking up if you own the very similar 2015 version – for just £3.99.

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.
