Forbes give us a closer look at two new sets that are due to debut at San Diego Comic Con in a couple of weeks time. Here we have a new Landspeeder set with Luke Skywalker, C-3PO, and a Jawa, and Ben Kenobi’s hut with Luke, R2-D2, and a Tusken Raider.
LEGO has been celebrating the anniversary of its Star Wars line all year with new remakes of its first sets, but at Comic-Con this summer they will showcase two new sets from the film that started it all: A New Hope, or, if you’re my age, plain old Star Wars.
Ben’s hut opens up to reveal an interior full of key items like a hologram Leia microfigure, blue milk carton, and training drone. The Landspeeder comes with a small cave for the Jawa to hide in, and stash its weapon.
Both sets will be available January 1st, 2020, for $29.99, and are designed to be easy for younger collectors to assemble, but with all the details older fans enjoy. And unlike the hard-to-get Comic-Con exclusives, you’ll be able to find them everywhere LEGO is sold.
