Summer Star Wars Sets Officially Revealed!

Hey guys! Today LEGO revealed four of the summer sets that we will be getting for LEGO Star Wars! Check them out below 🙂

Anakin’s Jedi Starfighter – set 75214

Comes with Anakin and R2-D2. Retails for $19.99 USD.

Opinion: I actually quite like this set. It looks suitably sleek and looks like a good size in relation to the price. I wonder if LEGO is moving back to $19.99 USD prices for sets of this size.

75216 Snoke's Throne Room Official Reveal (not hi res)

Snoke’s Throne Room – set 75216

Comes with Supreme Leader Snoke, Kylo Ren, Rey, and two Elite Praetorian Guards. Retails for $69.99 USD.

Opinion: I’ve seen a lot of praise for this set, but I seem to be missing something? I don’t really like it. The size of the set and the minifig selection looks like something I would pay at most $49.99 USD for. The build also looks quite jumbled.

X-wing Starfighter – set 75218

Comes with Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Biggs Darklighter, R2-Q2. Retails for $79.99 USD.

Opinion: Okay, this one I quite like. It looks very nice and I think LEGO has captured the look of the X-wing Starfighter well with this set. Great to get a new Biggs Darklighter minifig too. The price does feel kind of expensive though.

Sandcrawler – set 75220

Comes with Luke Skywalker, two Jawas, Astromech Droid, RA-7 Protocol Droid, 2-1B Surgical Droid. Retails for $139.99 USD.

Opinion: Okay, this set looks better than I anticipated. The build overall looks quite nice. However, I think that the minifigure selection is kind of small and the price is too high.

Anyways, thanks for looking! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! 🙂

  1. Kinda a weak wave. I like the throne room and it’s minifigures, but the price is insane! Just like the new Snadcrawler. I also like the new bacta tank Luke, and the guy in the 2018 SW Advent Calendar has the Brick Guy’s hair in a tan: For Captain America! 😀

  2. Sandcrawler – not bad but I’m not interested in a brown box on wheels

    X-Wing – YESS!!! Looks pretty good. Not sure about the flip the lever function – a cog would have been better – still, it’s a different take. The back doesn’t look the best but oh well. Front and wings are good. Own the 2011 (?) version so this is a pass but this set looks pretty good.

    Anakin’s Starfighter – Ehh. Own the 2008 set so another pass. This one has a weird jump in height from the middle to the cockpit.

    Snoke’s Throne Room – Where to start? Minifigures – Not bad, would’ve preferred 2 different guards though. Lift – cool. And that’s where the positives end. Seriously Lego, Snoke is not Thanos. Snoke does not need a flying chair!!! Needed some red banners instead of the wall things. Give me CM4Sci’s moc any day. Unless this set has some other functions it’s a pass. Kinda a shame as I want those figures 😀

    1. Sandcrawler – haha good point

      X-wng – fair enough. I also don’t like the tan lever at the back.

      Anakin’s Starfighter – good point. I don’t like the awkward shaping either.

      Snoke’s Throne Room – completely agree. CM4Sci’s MOC was better lol.
