Towards the end of November 2021, the first reports of a Star Wars BrickHeadz set depicting Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader emerged from Instagram user greekbricks. That same source has now shared that they believe the double pack to be named 40547 Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader.
The latest post reports that the rumoured model will cost $19.99 and is scheduled to release in May, the same month as the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi streaming series on Disney+, which launches on May 25.
In response to another user, the source suggested that the rumoured set will tie into the show. Darth Vader already received a BrickHeadz build in 2018 with 41619 Darth Vader, giving us an idea of what the character’s design looks like when translated into the brick-built caricature style. However, Obi-Wan Kenobi has yet to be transformed into a BrickHeadz model.
While these rumours should be taken with caution until officially confirmed by the LEGO Group, the same user previously reported on a life-sized recreation for Mjölnir before 76209 Thor’s Hammer was revealed.
Both Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen have been confirmed for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series as the titular character and Anakin Skywalker respectively, with the latter potentially portraying Darth Vader too. You can tune into the show starting from May 25, 2022.
