LEGO Group’s first-ever LEGO CON kicked off with some interesting builds and a behind-the-scenes look at the set creation process. There were some latest creations like the LEGO Ideas Foosball Table and the Minecraft world’s Modern Treehouse. What caught our eye are the three Star Wars sets depicting the highlighting scenes from season 2 of The Mandalorian. They will go on sale from August 1, so LEGO and Star Wars fanatics will have to wait a while before getting their hands on one. The latest LEGO sets include the Moff Gideon’s Imperial Light Cruiser (which I’m surely going to add to the collection), Imperial Armored Marauder, and the bounty hunter Boba Fett’s Starship.
The highlight of them all is the Imperial Light Cruiser (75315) which comes with a bridge (doubles as a handle for flying action), large spring-loaded shooters, and dual mini TIE Fighters. How could the LEGO set not have the main leads – that’s why it also comes with The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda minifigures along with the infamous villain Moff Gideon, Fennec Shand, Cara Dune, and the Dark Tropper too. Carrying a price tag of $160, the LEGO set has 1,336 pieces in total. Truly the fans will get a unique opportunity to create the iconic scenes from the Disney Plus hit series. According to LEGO, “The Mandalorian’ fans can recreate epic hero versus villain battles from Season 2 with the first-ever Lego brick-built model of the Imperial Light Cruiser.”
The set has cool weapons like the Mandalorian’s Amban phase-pulse blaster and spear to emulate the realism of the nostalgic inter-galactic era. Moff Gideon’s Darksaber for hero vs. villain play makes things even more exciting. Add to the mix 2 thermal detonators and electro binoculars, and LEGO fans are in for a treat in these not-so-certain times. Yes, what better than to create the Imperial Light Cruiser while having a quaint weekend at home!
