For twelve days in September ticket holders to the New York Comic-Con (October 5th to 8th) were able to enter a lottery to buy an unknown event exclusive LEGO BrickHeadz set

luminaries such as Adam Savage, Felicity Jones and Mark Hamill will be attending to give talks and sign autographs.
The community engagement team at LEGO has reached out to a number of LEGO community websites (no, we aren't one of them) to canvas for ideas for future gift with purchase options - such as exclusive minifigures, polybags and boxed sets - and unlike the LEGO Ideas programme they are accepting suggestions based on existing licensed themes like Star Wars

The LEGO store events calendar for October
has been released. It'll come as no surprise that the recently announced 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon goes on sale on October 1st, but you might want to hold off buying it until October 10th when a double VIP points offer starts. There's no word yet if the exclusive VIP card
will be available in October though.
The third and final exclusive art print commemorating the release of the LEGO The Last Jedi
sets is now available for qualifying orders. Hit the thumbnail above get a glimpse. And with news comes the inevitable conclusion that Force Friday II is drawing to a close.

at once if you are lucky.
In a surprise addition to their Force Friday II stock list, Big W is now selling the 75144 UCS Snowspeeder
for AU$298.00. Until now this has only been available at LEGO online and their Dreamword and Melbourne retail outlets, meaning those collectors who haven't had access to these avenues can now get this re-tread of 10129 UCS Rebel Snowspeeder.
After spending the first quarter of the year denying the UCS Millennium Falcon existed and then the most recent quarter dropping countless Easter Eggs and teasers, LEGO is going all out and making it impossible for us to ignore that they have dropped the unexpected (typed with a touch of sarcasm) bombshell on us. And they aren't going to help us deny ourselves the pleasure of buying this set because - on top of the three exclusive posters
that will be available on Force Friday II weekend - there is now going to be an exclusive card for LEGO VIP members who order their 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon on September 14th and 15th.
Because triple VIP points (worth US$120) and an exclusive polybagged Star Wars
set from shop@home
isn't enough - LEGO have sweetened the deal with not one, not two but three limited edition promotional posters. They will be free with a qualifying LEGO Star Wars
purchase, while stocks last, and a different one will be made available on September 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Rebelscum will be revealing one per day - so click on the thumbnail above to see what the first one looks like.
Coming on October 1st at Shop.LEGO.com for $799, the much-anticipated (and equally denied) 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon
with a whopping, staggering 7,541 pieces! At the moment this is for show only - VIP members will be able to order theirs on September 14th and 15th while the rest of the Star Wars
public will have to wait until October 1st.
Say goodbye to the contents of your wallets, because Force Friday II is almost upon us, and iO9
have published details of some of the new toys that will be showing up in stores from The Last Jedi
While the world's retailers are still technically under a Disney Lucasfilm embargo it seems that the LEGOLAND park in the German city of Günzburg is not only putting them out on display, but their park's store has been actually selling them. With thanks to Promobricks.de

There's no sign that this offer is available for online purchases.
In the recently posted What's Missing? Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
on Brickset, LEGO set designer Hans Burkhard Schlömer (aka BrickCommander) posts that LEGO will be retiring their Rogue One
sets this year. He also gives the fast approaching release of the UCS Millennium Falcon a hat tip, as well as hinting that there is another set of significant (though not quite as big) size coming soon too.
Reports of upscaled LEGO Star Wars
character keychain lights have surfaced in The Astromech Collection group on Facebook
. While the BB-8 one was released in The Force Awakens
packaging this is the first we've seen of any The Last Jedi
characters. Both were found in south Florida.

had been found at retail in Canadian Walmarts. It now turns out that sales are being denied at the register and price tags have been removed, but they are still hanging on pegs as the recent photo above shows.
If you aren't aware that LEGO is bringing out a new UCS Star Wars
set - which all indications point to a new Millennium Falcon - then presumably you've been living under a tree on Dagobah. If so the recently leaked Chinese flyer
will get you up to speed. However there's more, because the bottom left corner sports the silhouette of a Star Destroyer. Now, we at Rebelscum might be clutching at straws but wasn't it the outline of a Millennium Falcon
on the box of 75159 Death Star what started all of the excitement? Just saying...
The twenty-sixth LEGO Star Wars

Anticipation metres tweaked this afternoon when LEGO posted a picture of a shrouded box on their social media streams. The mystery box is covered in a layer of white gauze and is positioned next to a 10258 London Bus set. Some fans have said the inclusion of the iconic double-decker is for scale while others have noted that every time the Millennium Falcon has appeared in a Star Wars
movie is has been filmed in London, while other fans have taken to more digital forensic techniques and blasted the image with special filters and ground penetrating radar to reveal a LEGO logo (shock) and some strange outlines
that supposedly represent a cockpit and the forward mandibles. All I can see is a sailboat
. Turning the heat up even further is this post at Promobricks
which reveals that the September calendar has early bird access to two new exclusive LEGO sets.

While LEGO isn't accepting any more Ideas proposals for any of IPs that they have already licensed, we wanted to highlight this Cloud City play set
, built at MicroFighter-scale because it is so inventive. Unlike many Ideas pitches this hasn't been mocked up with a CAD package but is actual (ABS) bricks and mortar. And while it is compact and bijou - the set includes all the iconic Cloud City locations - it uses space well and circles around the gantry where Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader had their famous father and son face off. If you'd like to see that scene produced check out I Am Your Father
which needs less than 400 votes to make it to the final LEGO review panel.

With so much attention being laundered on superheroes and Ninjago, LEGO has finally revealed their Star Wars contribution for San Diego Comic-Con. Sadly it's not going to fit into anyone's suitcase because this plus 36 thousand brick model of Luke Skywalker is life-sized and weights an estimated 110 lbs (50 kg). Inspired by his iconic costume and stance in The Force Awakens this build will deliver the exact same glowering performance as its live action, on-screen counterpart.

You'll have noticed that a lot of the coverage on the leaked The Last Jedi
sets is starting to get pulled down. While there are some hold outs and others, despite it being nearly a week, haven't even been contacted by the company with four letters in its name it is still pretty easy to find these images. Highlighting how ridiculous it is that certain sites are being targeted while others are being ignored is this blog post
by fellow AFOL and Star Wars
fan Gilles Paul Tassarb. He has found a notable way of circumventing the confidential nature of the sets by pointing out that Chinese bootlegger LEPIN has already copied them and is currently distributing them via aliexpress.com. Rebelscum is in no way encouraging the sale of counterfeit licensed Star Wars
merch though. So just look.

The darling of the Resistance has made her The Last Jedi minifig debut at last, thanks to an underground web of smugglers and spies. Exactly what the Resistance was founded on! Here we see her with a grey multi-layered grey outfit with tan arms and carrying a blue lightsaber, prompting the suggestion that Luke doesn't handle his old blade anymore. This minifig will come with the 75189 First Order Heavy Assault Walker set.

The last crew member from 75188 Resistance Bomber has reported for duty. Click on the thumbnail above to have a closer non-Mr Freeze (Happy 25th by the way) peek a distinctly female face and compare it to the minifig line up in the boxed shots
and you'll see that this minifig has a dual-sided print. There is scant information about this new character from The Last Jedi
and why this minifig is attached to this LEGO set, Rebelscum is sure to glean more information as we creep closer to Force Friday - so stay tuned to /rs/lego
; your best source for LEGO Star Wars
news this side of the Rishi Maze.
Last week a limited number of these started circulating on the secondary market, with reasonable prices attached to them suggesting that the promotion is closer than expected, and now an official shot has been leaked via /r/legoleaks. This minifig matches the style packed in the R3-M2 polybag that LEGO brand stores in European say on May 4th, and comes with the markings of a Shoretrooper Squad Leader from Rogue One. Click on the thumbnail above and enjoy the crystal clear image - no more grainy shots for a change!
UPDATE: This polybag is apparently available to purchase (no special requirements) at the LEGO Brand Store in Budapest, Hungary now.
While it's certainly not official yet, a number of European retailers and wholesalers in Germany, Italy, Hungary, Poland and Greece have listed a mysterious "LEGO 75187 - Star Wars - Confidential brick Build Bb-8" as being available from September 1st, 2017. While recommended retail prices vary between €99.99 and €120.00 this is less an indication on the uncertainty of this listing and more a reflection on the domestic economies of the Eurozone nations. This information was first revealed on Eurobricks.com
by PrisonBrick who comments that since the set seems to be getting a wide release it won't be the usual Direct To Consumer (D2C) exclusive that an Ultimate Collector's Series set normally is, and is unlikely to get the UCS badge.
Sporting a very George Michael look is the latest incarnation of hero of the Resistance, Poe Dameron, from The Last Jedi
. This minifig is expected to be released with 75188 Resistance Bomber and depicts Poe in some kind of crash harness or flight suit. It is worth noting that this leaked image has a long blaster
instead of the shorter one shown on the boxed proof images
that were leaked in May. This marks the fourth in a full set of five minifigs from the 75188 Resistance Bomber set, with Resistance Gunner Paige still AWOL.
Out now is the latest edition of the LEGO Star Wars Magazine from Egmont Publishing. In addition to original comic strips, games, puzzles, posters and competitions is a foil bagged limited edition mini Jawa Sandcrawler.

, where the quoted price on the website includes postage, and the magazine ships internationally on the same day it is published.
Attendees of San Diego Comic-Con hoping to snag some decent LEGO Star Wars
loot won't be totally left out in the cold because official LEGO artist Dan Veesenmeyer (illustrator in LEGO Club magazine
) will be attending Artist Alley. To stand a chance of getting one of the three different prints - including a special edition Princess Leia - you'll need to head to table #EE-21 in the Artist Alley section
of the hall. These 8″ by 11″ prints are limited to 40 each and at $10 they aren't going to last long. During the convention Dan will also be doing daily sketches but slots are limited so try to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
Despite some well documented production woes Lucasfilm/Disney are holding the release date for the currently untitled Han Solo stand alone movie at May 25th, 2018, and now Brick Fanatics
have received word that suggests the LEGO Star Wars range for the Han Solo movie will hit shelves on April 20th, 2018. This would put the - presumably wider - merchandise release five weeks ahead of the movie's premiere. While Brick Fanatics are quietly confident that this will pan out it remains a rumour until officially confirmed by Lucasfilm/Disney or LEGO.
While we now look back at the LEGO Star Wars line and consider its success to be a no brainer, back in 1999 when LEGO launched it they didn't know if it was a winning gamble, or if the expense of the license and developing the initial range would further mire them in debt. Jump through to learn about one of the more inventive approaches LEGO undertook to promote the new licensed line - and your chance to own a set of these rare collectables.
With news that the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive for 2017 is a BrickHeadz Spiderman/Venom
and Supergirl/Martian Manhunter
many are reflecting on the entire nature of the convention exclusive. For some the annual hunt for the LEGO convention exclusive is an integral part of the event while for others - mostly those who can't go in person - it is a major speed bump to maintaining a complete collection, and the latest issue of Blocks Magazine has an editorial on it reports Brick Fanatics
. It's worth noting that LEGO currently has three BrickHeadz themes - DC, Marvel and Disney - and so far two of the three are being represented at SDCC. Is there room for another or would that triple the ire aimed at LEGO already?
We've already seen one ground trooper of the Resistance army
, and now we're revealing the Resistance Trooper that will come with 75189 First Order Heavy Transport. Sporting the same visored helmet, but with a flip down face guard, and printed leg piece as the aforementioned Resistance Trooper this one has a new bearded face and torso print.

With a day between unofficial photo releases the LEGO The Last Jedi
leakapolooza seems to be tailing off now. Here is the Resistance Bomber Pilot that will be included in the 75188 Resistance Bomber (see our earlier report
for a description and images). This minifig has the same face, torso and leg print as the Resistance Bombardier minifig
, but comes with a new single piece visored helmet. Truth be told, it's not a great picture and only marginally better than the one that came with the boxed minifig lineup
but the Aurabesh on the helmet is readable. Does anyone want to translate it? We'd love to hear from you
if you manage to figure out what it says.
You'll have caught a glimpse of this minifig in our 75188 Resistance Bomber reveal in May, so here is a bigger and better shot to whet your appetitie for the upcoming The Last Jedi sets due to be released by LEGO in September. Compare the previous image with this one and you'll immediately spot that the face is reversible - with a plain minifig face on one side and another with a breathing mask.
The latest pre-released minifig image is of Rose, a new character who is said to accompany Finn on a side mission in The Last Jedi
and will come in an as yet unknown set. The torso and leg print shows a non-descript maintenance workers outfit, and all-in-all it's a rather non-descript minifig that is somewhat reminiscent of the LEGO version of Irina Spalko
from the IJ: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sets.
The LCC LUG of Belgium & Netherlands have managed to dig out the draft cover for the newest addition to DK's LEGO Star Wars library. Click through for the cover reveal and the details on the book's contents.
Roving reporter for the official Star Wars website, James Floyd, has submitted his field report from LEGOLAND California's Star Wars Days (June 3rd and 4th). His in-depth coverage does a great job at describing the look, feel and flow of the event and delves into the local LUG fan build display, the special screening of all five episodes of LEGO Star Wars
: Droid Tales
and all the interactive events like the costume and trivia contests, a scavenger hunt for exclusive Droid Hunt ribbons and the cosplay parades held by the 501st and Rebel Legions, Mandalorian Mercs, Saber Guild, and R2 Builders clubs. You can read James's full write-up at the official Star Wars site
Sporting a new quilted tabard, Kylo Ren displays his rage face in this new The Last Jedi
minifig which is from an undocumented set - no points for suggesting Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter though. We are guessing that the head piece is dual-sided, with the reverse depicting a less aggressive visage. It is interesting to note that the scar Kylo Ren received in his duel with Rey in The Force Awakens
is in the controversial location
that The Last Jedi
director Rian Johnson moved it to. Grr, continuity, growl, fans unite, grr.
