LEGO will delight with new Star Wars sets in 2023
In February 2023, The Mandalorian season 3 sets will officially go on sale. Not surprisingly, since the end of the summer, messages about upcoming new products began to appear on the pages of thematic sites and blogs. For example, in October, information about two more sets based on the original trilogy began to spread. At the same time, materials about updating the Star Wars series are published in sources that previously always gave accurate forecasts.
So, for May 2023, the release of two prefabricated kits with new models of galactic starships is planned. In the first constructor called 75346 LEGO Star Wars Pirate Snubfighter, judging by the number of parts in 285 pieces, a small spacecraft will be presented. The name of the set also indicates this: according to the film, Snubfighter are small lone fighters. However, bloggers do not dare to name exactly which model is proposed for assembly. It is only expected that it will be smaller in size than users saw in the set. 75301 LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker X-wing Fighterwhich came out in 2021.
Users speculate that it could be a version of the Z-95 Headhunter, the predecessor of the X-Wing with simple non-folding wings. Most likely, the starship will be somewhat worn to match the “pirate look”.
This is what the starship looked like in the 2013 75004 LEGO Star Wars Z-95 Headhunter set.
We note right away that the second spaceship is far from new to the “world of cubes” – the designers of the Danish manufacturer “Lego” have already paid attention to it more than once. In particular, in 2006 it was presented in a set 6206 LEGO Star Wars TIE Interceptorand in 2019 – in the constructor 75240 LEGO Star Wars Major Vonreg’s TIE Fighter. However, everything shows that the updated version, which is implemented by the authors of the constructor 75348 LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Fang Fighter vs. TIE Interceptor”, will be able to outshine its predecessors in all respects. The thing is that this set will be 3 times larger than the one considered at the beginning of the review in terms of the number of building “bricks” – 957 pieces!
Thus, the spaceship assembled from parts will amaze Star Wars fans with its impressive size. There is no doubt that the newly-minted model will significantly benefit from the detailing of spacecraft.
Will miniature figures be included in the package of new themed construction sets, and which characters exactly? There is no information on this issue yet. But the approximate cost of prefabricated toys is already called: the price of a set 75346 LEGO Star Wars Pirate Snubfighter will be about 34.99 euros, and 75348 LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Fang Fighter vs. TIE Interceptor” – 99.99 euros.
This is what the second starship looked like in sets 6206 LEGO Star Wars “TIE Interceptor” (2006) and 75240 lego star Wars “TIE Fighter Major Vonreg” (2019 onwards)
