SOMETHING BIG coming to LEGO Star Wars

LEGO designer Hans Burkhard Schlömer has hinted at two new LEGO Star Wars sets that fans can be expect to be BIG.

In a comment that Rebelscum found on the LEGO database Brickset, Hans Burkhard Schlömer shared the news that the LEGO Star Wars Rogue One sets will be retiring at the end of the year. He also hinted at two new LEGO Star Wars sets that will be announced soon.

The comment reads:

Make sure you are not missing out on sets that have already been made, as the first wave of Rogue One is going to retire with the end of 2017 – including my TIE Striker and Krennic’s shuttle, to be replaced by SOMETHING BIG and SOMETHING EVEN MUCH, MUCH BIGGER 🙂

‘SOMETHING EVEN MUCH, MUCH BIGGER’ is almost certainly 75192 Millennium Falcon, the largest ever LEGO Star Wars set, that the LEGO Group has been teasing in recent weeks. The set is expected to be released on October 1, and displayed for the first time in official LEGO Stores on September 1.

‘SOMETHING BIG’ is less clear – if it is smaller than the Falcon, it is likely one of the larger sets from the Star Wars: The Last Jedi range as no other UCS sets are expected in the near future. Despite the sets being due for release on September 1, less than one week away, the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm have still not announced what they will be. Without an official announcement it is difficult to speculate as to what the largest sets in the range might be.

The LEGO sets for Star Wars: The Last Jedi will launch on September 1. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is due for release on December 14 in the UK and December 15 in the USA.
