Limited to a fleeting glimpse at the 2020 International Toy Fair in New York, D-O got an accidental reveal through German retailer Propshop a few days ago. The information was promptly removed when LEGO was alerted but a few diligent websites, like Promobricks.de captured all the details*.



Recreate all the authentic details of the endearing droid with LEGO bricks. Just like the real D-O, the head can be rotated 360 degrees and tilted forward and backward. This collector's item also includes an integrated stand to present the model together with an information sign and D-O as a minifigure at home or in the office.


This set includes the following features:
  • Fans can recreate the lovable droid D-O from the film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as a collector's item and recreate the authentic details in LEGO style to create a fantastic building model and showpiece.

  • The model has movable antennas and the droid's head can be tilted and rotated 360 degrees as we know it from the Star Wars character. The set also includes an integrated stand, an information sign and D-O as a minifigure to make collector's hearts beat faster.

  • D-O is part of a fantastic new LEGO Star Wars range of building models and show pieces (new from January 2020), which also includes the “Stormtrooper Helmet” (75276) and “Boba Fett Helmet” (75277) sets.

  • This cool 519-piece LEGO Star Wars construction toy gives creative Star Wars fans ages 10 and up a huge pleasure and is a perfect birthday, Christmas or surprise gift.
  • As a construction model, D-O is 27 cm high, 10 cm wide and 16 cm deep. Although the droid takes up little space, it impresses as a spectacular showpiece in the office or in your own four walls.

  • This cool battery-free construction toy offers a relaxing building experience. Building the Star Wars character on your own or in the family and friends is a great break from everyday stress.



No official release date has been given though the indication that this set will accompany the new Buildable Model Helmet subtheme suggests that 75278 D-O will be out in late April.
