LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Sets Revealed & Photos!

Given the way that the LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens set images were closely guarded under lock and key until it was nearly Force Friday last year, I really expected that TLG would keep a tight lid on their LEGO Rogue One sets until this year’s Force Friday (September 30th, 2016) as well. But it looks like the starfighters are out of the bag, as Amazon Italy has posted the official images of all of this year’s sets for brick fans the world over to see! I’ll be discussing the Rogue One Buildable Figures sets on my Star Wars blog, but let’s take a first look at the Rogue One vehicles sets…

LEGO Rogue One TIE Striker Set BoxUPDATED September 1st, 2016: All LEGO Rogue One sets photos that had previously been removed at the request of The LEGO Company have been re-uploaded! Finally, we can officially post the images again!

Wow, talk about an unexpected development! I absolutely did not expect to see official images floating around for the Star Wars Rogue One LEGO sets for at least another month, but I guess the Rogue One toys just aren’t being kept as hush-hush as everything for Episode VII was.

Personally, I thought that was a little silly and a bit of overkill for The Force Awakens, so I’m glad to see photos of the merchandise for this year’s movie making the rounds much earlier.

So, what does TLG have in store for us as far as vehicles go from the just-before-A New Hope time period? Let’s have ourselves a look…

75154 LEGO Star Wars Rogue One TIE Striker Set

First, we’ve got the sleek and ultra-cool new LEGO TIE Striker 75154 set, which is the first new canonical TIE Fighter variant from a movie in over thirty years! Craziness, right?!

The 75154 TIE Striker includes 543 pieces and will retail for $69.99 in the United States. While it’s not quite as neat as the now non-canon TIE Defenders, the TIE Striker sure a slick-looking imperial vehicle! The set includes a Rebel Trooper, a TIE Pilot, an Imperial Shoretrooper and an Imperial Ground Crew minifigure.

LEGO Rogue One AT-ST Walker 75153 BoxAn oldie but a goodie returns with the 75153 AT-ST Walker set! This set will exclusively include a Baze Malbus minifigure as well as AT-ST Driver and Rebel Trooper minifigures.

I always thought it was weird that the Rebels AT-ST was retired so quickly after being released, and now I can’t help but wonder if TLG knew that the Rogue AT-ST was coming up and wanted to clear collectors’ palettes for it…?

2016 LEGO Star Wars AT-ST Walker Rogue One SetThe Rogue One AT-ST Walker set will contain 449 pieces and retail for $39.99. That’s a pretty great value, assuming the price doesn’t go up between new and release!

LEGO Imperial Assault Hovertank 75152 BoxThe LEGO Imperial Assault Hovertank set looks really weird, and reminds me more of something that we would have seen in the Clone Wars or the prequels than a vehicle from the Original Trilogy. I think this has the potential to be the slowest seller in this lineup unless the Hovertank is really cool in the movie.

LEGO Rogue One Imperial Assault Hovertank SetLEGO 75152 looks to be the cheapest vehicle set in the Rogue One range, retailing for $29.99 and including 385 pieces.

All three figures included with the set are exclusive to this set: a LEGO Chirrut Imwe minifigure and two Imperial Hovertank Pilot minifigures.

75155 LEGO U-Wing Fighter Rogue One SetThe Rebel Alliance doesn’t get much in the way of new crafts that we’ve seen thus far for Rogue One, but the one new Rebel set is the LEGO 75155 Rebel U-Wing Fighter!

This isn’t your typical Star Wars starfighter–instead, the Rebel U-Wing looks to serve as more a troop transport vehicle and Gunboat than the outer space rebel vehicles that we’ve become accustomed to.

The LEGO U-Wing Fighter set is the only set containing the LEGO Jyn Erso minifigure in 2016, so it’s obviously meant to be a pretty big deal and a huge seller. The set contains 659 pieces and will retail for $69.99, and includes five minifigures: Bistan, Cassian Andor, Jyn Erso, a Rebel Trooper and a U-Wing Pilot.

LEGO Rogue One Krennic's Imperial Shuttle BoxFinally, we’ve got the largest and most expensive of all of this fall’s LEGO Rogue One sets: Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle 75156! This black Imperial Shuttle basically looks like a cross between the Original Trilogy Imperial Shuttles (which were white-grey) and Kylo’s Ren’s Shuttle (which was jet black).

75156 Krennic's Imperial Shuttle LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Set

Imperial Shuttles never seem to set the world ablaze with their sales, but this is a new and distinctive vehicle that’s utilized by the primary antagonist of the Rogue One movie, so TLG really couldn’t pass up the chance to release this vehicle as a set.

The $89.99 set contains 863 pieces and includes six minifigures (the most of any Rogue One set), including Director Krennic, two Imperial Death Troopers, Pao, Bodi Rook and K2-SO. Hopefully this set actually launches at $90 and doesn’t have a price increase, as the MSRP looks pretty reasonable at $89.99.

LEGO Rogue One U-Wing Fighter Box FrontI’ll post more news and photos of these sets as more specific release information regarding them (and any potential exclusive releases) are revealed, and you can follow the Brick Toy News Facebook and Twitter Pages for alerts and updates as they happen.

Now that we’ve seen them officially, what do you think of the Star Wars Rogue One LEGO sets coming out next month, brick fans? Which of these sets look like must-buys for your collection, and which ones do you feel like you can pass on without losing any sleep?

LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Sets Revealed & Photos! — 10 Comments

  1. Once again, Lego fails us on female characters. Even though Rogue One is starring a female character. And another big black triangle thingy. *sigh*

    • What’s wrong with you? The U-Wing which is probably the rebel most important ship from the movie has Felicity Jones character! The other ones are specific to the scenes that appeared on some trailers and none of them had her as protagonist of the scene.

    • Jyn erso is wearing a cloak, thats why you can’t see her chest printing. Also, there is another “black triangle thingy” because of all of these ships are in the same universe, so they should look similar.

  2. So glad these sets aren’t overpriced like last year’s star wars set(except the tie striker)

  3. davidlovesphotography on instagram has pictures of Lego Orson Krennic!!! He wont say where he got the figure from though.

  4. That U-Wing looks pretty great. Especially with the Space Monkey figure. Would love a microfighter of that!

  5. This sets look better then force awakens except for the first order transporter and falcon were the best

  6. I am probably going to get the hovertank so I can customize it and add a heavier main gun. The set itself looks decent, but it needs a bit of work.
