Our first glimpse at the upcoming Rogue One spin-off show debuted at Star Wars Celebration yesterday, and already there are lines to be drawn between the footage in the trailer and details of a rumoured LEGO Star Wars: Andor set, which is said to be launching later this year.
According to a report from Promobricks earlier this month, 75338 will include a ship that’s evocative of the Clone Wars’ Republic Gunship and HH-87 Starhopper. That sounds very much like the bulky, short-winged ship we catch a glimpse of in the Andor trailer, so if the rumour is accurate, it’s a good bet that that’s what we’re getting.
While the teaser doesn’t give us an extended look at the new vehicle – and the colour grading on the trailer makes it difficult to ascertain details – the same rumour suggests the LEGO version will be mostly grey, with stickered yellow highlights. It also details three possible minifigures included in 75338: one is believed to be Cassian Andor (naturally), while the others are not named, but described.
One is said to be dressed ‘completely in blue’ with a blue cap, while the other is described as wearing a beige coat and sporting blonde hair with a receding hairline. There are decent candidates for both those minifigures in the trailer – the first is likely to be the blue-and-orange-capped guards, while the second sounds like a fair account of Stellan Skarsgård’s as-yet-unnamed character.
Even while these links between rumour and trailer are clear, it’s important to remember that reports of any LEGO Star Wars: Andor sets are yet to be confirmed by the LEGO Group, and should be taken with caution for the time being.
