The force has awakened for a second consecutive year, and with it comes a brand new crop of toys and merchandise to celebrate the December 16 release of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”.
Of course, with a new Star Wars movie on the horizon that also means lots of new LEGO sets to build and play for fans of all ages and today they’ve unveiled their new “Rogue One” collection set to hit store shelves September 30.
While some kits such as the AT-ST Walker and Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle will instantly look familiar to longtime Star Wars fans, the TIE Striker and Rebel U-Wing Fighter are brand new models while also taking its design cues from the original trilogy, which makes a lot of sense given the timeline of the new Lucasfilm movie.
Elsewhere, the buildable figures look really neat with plenty of detail on Sergeant Jyn Erso and the Imperial Death Trooper, though the imposing former Imperial droid K-2SO looks particularly sharp in this configuration.
