Believe it or not, there are still Summer 2016 LEGO sets that I took photos of at the New York Toy Fair 2016 almost two months ago and still haven’t talked about. And doubly shocking is that a few of those aforementioned sets are from the Star Wars theme! That ends now, though, as tonight I’m discussing the Eclipse Fighter on my Star Wars blog, and over here the main ship from this year’s Freemaker Adventures cartoon: the LEGO Star Wars Star Scavenger 75147!
And the newest non-canon additions to the theme will be coming from this summer’s Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Animated Series!
The main characters of this series, the three scavenger siblings that make up the Freemaker family, will be the central focus of The Freemaker Adventures. And if you want to complete the whole family–including their faithful (Battle) Droid–all you’ll need to purchase is one set: the 75147 Star Scavenger!
I’ve always wanted to be able to cheer for Battle Droids, so I’m excited to see Roger the Battle Droid placed in a non-evil role in this story.
Both of the Star Wars Freemaker Adventures sets are part of the Summer 2016 sets wave, and are scheduled to be released in June 2016. That means that we may start seeing early-released copies of this set as soon as next month! Time to start saving your credits!
What do you think of the primary heroic set from the LEGO Star Wars Freemaker Adventures, brick fans? Are you intrigued enough to want to add this set to your summer shopping list, or are you taking a wait-and-see approach with merch from this upcoming animated series?
