Brickset: How did the creation of 75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers come about?
Jens: As you know, there was enormous demand for this set online! We are always listening to requests from fans and swiftly saw that this particular campaign was becoming absolutely crazy so responding to it was inevitable. It is not necessarily the sort of set we would typically design but the demand was very clear.
Jens: Not really. We want to hear from the fans directly whenever possible and we are always doing our best to satisfy LEGO Star Wars collectors, as well as new fans.
Michael: Additionally, this example is something of a special case because the 501st Legion costuming organisation was originated by Star Wars fans so listening intently to the fans with regard to 75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers felt completely natural.
