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 75291 Death Star Final Duel.
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.
Issue 69 of Immediate Media’s LEGO Star Wars magazine will arrive on shelves on March 17. The current issue includes a free Mandalorian warrior minifigure from 75267 Mandalorian Battle Pack, while last month’s featured a buildable TIE Interceptor.
This also means we’re getting two minifigures in a row, where normally they’d be broken up with mini-models. We’ll just have to wait and see whether that sets a precedent for the LEGO Star Wars magazine going forward.
