The seventh Star Wars movie is not here yet, but Lego has already completed two new sets that feature elements from The Force Awakens that reveal new details about the new ships we’ll see in the movie and even some new characters.
The two sets that’ll soon be available include Poe Dameron’s X-Wing and the new Millennium Falcon.
The new X-Wing ship comes in new black and orange colors and the set features four characters, including X-Wing pilot Dameron, the new BB-8 robot, a Resistance pilot and a ground crew person. The set confirms that the BB-8 robot can fly the X-Wing, just like R2-D2, and that the Rebel Alliance is now known as the Resistance while the old Empire is now called the First Order.
The second set features the Millennium Falcon, which is a slightly updated model compared to previous versions. The ship has a new, rectangular radar dish, which replaced the one destroyed in Return of the Jedi. The set includes more figures (seven) than the X-Wing box: the older Han Solo, the BB-8 robot, Chewbacca, Rey, Finn, Tasu Leech and a Kanjiklub Gang Member.
As Gizmodo points out, The Force Awakens trailer and this particular box suggest that Leech and this gang might be bad news for the heroes in the movie.
UPDATE: The Lego Group asked us to remove the leaked images. The original text of the post remains.
