We’re not yet out of November, but we’re already starting to learn details of next summer’s LEGO Star Wars sets. Rumours of 2022’s May the Fourth set have been doing the rounds for a while, pointing to an Ultimate Collector Series Luke’s Landspeeder – and it’s apparently not the only set coming our way in early summer.
Instagram user lego_club_news reports that sets 75339 and 75342 will launch in either May or June, suggesting the splintered waves of 2021 – when new batches of LEGO Star Wars sets hit shelves in January, March, April and August – will be even further spread out in 2022.
At the moment, only two new LEGO Star Wars sets have been confirmed for launch in January: 75320 Snowtrooper Battle Pack and 75322 Hoth AT-ST, both of which complement the newly-released 75313 AT-AT. Rumours of many more have already hit the web, though, including sets based on The Clone Wars, The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett.
These two latest sets could feasibly be based on any of those properties, or perhaps even Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, given next year marks the 20th anniversary of the middle chapter in the prequel trilogy. At the moment, we’ve got nothing to go on bar the set numbers, which… isn’t much.
Still, they feel like pretty safe bets given the product number sequencing for the rest of 2022’s rumoured LEGO Star Wars sets – but their release date of May/June is less certain, so take that with a pinch of salt for now.
