2017 is a great year for LEGO Star Wars?
Yep, you heard me. Why?
Well honestly, when the 2017 Star Wars sets were revealed, I was a little disappointed. Considering that it was the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope, I had hoped that there would be more sets based on Episode IV.
Then I realized that the 40th Anniversary of ANH would mean it was the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars!
And upon taking a closer look, I noticed LEGO may actually have subtly celebrated that… with at least one set from each movie!
Check it out:
EPISODE I (THE PHANTOM MENACE):
(75169 Duel on Naboo)
EPISODE II (ATTACK OF THE CLONES):(75191 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive Booster Ring)
THE CLONE WARS:(75168 Yoda’s Jedi Starfighter)
EPISODE III (REVENGE OF THE SITH):(75183 Darth Vader Transformation)
STAR WARS REBELS: (75170 The Phantom II)
(75160 – 75163 Microfighters, 75164 Rebel Trooper Battle Pack, 75165 Imperial Trooper Battle Pack, 75171 Battle on Scarif, Shoretrooper Promo, 75172 Y-wing Starfighter, R3-M1 Promo, 75523 Shoretrooper, 75524 Chirrut Imwe, 75525 Baze Malbus)
EPISODE IV (A NEW HOPE):
(75531 Stormtrooper Commander, 75173 Luke’s Landspeeder, Detention Block Escape)
EPISODE V (THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK): (75144 UCS Snowspeeder)
EPISODE VI (RETURN OF THE JEDI):(75532 Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike, 75175 A-wing Starfighter, 75174 Desert Skiff)

ORIGINAL LEGO MATERIAL:

Also, the May the 4th Polybag was one of the two characters that appeared in all the movies: R2-D2!
And finally, with rumors of a UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) becoming stronger every day, that may be the great way to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars!
