LEGO Star Wars: The ‘Rogue One’ Set Photos You Need to See

This week, Lucasfilm, Disney and the various Star Wars licensees released details of all the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story toys to expect in stores on September 30, the second annual Force Friday. After teasing a few images to other media outlets, LEGO has revealed the entire first wave of Rogue One toys. These include traditional sets, as well as new Buildable Figure sets.

Like the early sets for The Force Awakens, these first Rogue One sets don't reveal much about the film. We already know that the movie is set before A New Hope, following Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and the band of Rebels who stole the Death Star plans. Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) will be responsible for keeping the plans out of their hands. Much of the film also takes place on the moon of Jedha, where the raw materials for building a lightsaber can be found.

Toys for rich kids. Plus not much “lego” there. Pieces just build the one thing, no imagination required.

This stuff is getting close to “collector” plates, I fear, and about as functional for it original purpose as well. Beside the outlandish pricing for merely molded plastic.


Accounting for inflation, Legos are actually cheaper than they were 20 years ago. They are a higher-end toy, built to exacting standards. I’ll gladly pay to keep it that way.

The suggestion that the pieces are not universally usable is absolutely laughable. I am intimately familiar with every piece used in each of the new sets. I have used all of them routinely in many of my customs models. I LOVE it when new parts come out. I recently bought the Jurassic World 75916 set just to check out the new sphere pieces and see what kind of new creations they might inspire.
