LEGO’s Star Wars 25th Anniversary Extravaganza

To kick off this momentous year, LEGO has unleashed a plethora of Star Wars sets, tantalizing fans with the promise of exclusive minifigures that nod to the franchise’s rich history. These special editions echo the success of LEGO’s 20th-anniversary models, promising a trip down memory lane for fans who have been with the Star Wars LEGO universe since its inception.

Additionally, whispers in the LEGO galaxy suggest that midi-scale models of classic ships might make their triumphant return. As the year progresses, we eagerly await the unveiling of these commemorative sets and the unique minifigures that accompany them.

The Battle Begins: Clone Trooper & Battle Droid Battle Pack (75372)

January 1st marked the release of the Clone Trooper & Battle Droid Battle Pack, a treat for collectors who revel in the art of army building. Priced at $30, this set is a steal, offering a whopping 9 minifigures that cater to both Republic and Separatist factions. The true gems of this battle pack are the standard Phase II clones and the redesigned Super Battle Droids that will undoubtedly find a coveted place in many collections.

However, it’s not just about the minifigures; the inclusion of the Octuptarra tri-droid adds an extra layer of excitement to the set. As LEGO continues to cater to the army-building community, this battle pack sets a promising tone for the rest of the year, leaving fans eager to see what other surprises LEGO has in store.

Completing the Trio: The Crimson Firehawk (75384)

Continuing the streak of January 1st releases, The Crimson Firehawk (75384) completes the trio of Padawans from Young Jedi Adventures, following the Tenoo Jedi Temple (75358) released in 2023. This set specifically appeals to the youngest fans of the Star Wars universe, providing a solid starter set for those taking their first steps into the world of LEGO Star Wars.

The inclusion of minifigures of the Crimson Firehawk’s young pilot Nash Durango and her droid sidekick RJ-83 adds a touch of character-driven storytelling to this set.
