"Force Friday" is here, and with it a slew of toys based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The movie may not be out for another three months, but you can start playing right now.
Among other things, LEGO has announced its official lineup of Force Awakens building sets. They're made up of six seven* vehicles from the movie — three "good guy" ships and four belonging to new baddies the First Order — each sold separately and each containing a different set of coveted Minifigures.
The LEGO Group was kind enough to share some super high-resolution images of the new sets with us, along with details for each. So we've listed them below, along with pricing, number of pieces, and play features of the finished build.
You'll find Rey's speeder (don't you think it looks like an old ship's engine that's been ripped free and repurposed?), Poe Dameron's specialized black-and-orange X-Wing, Kylo Ren's snazzy Command Shuttle with extending wings, Minifigures for every major character in the movie with the notable exceptions of Luke and Leia, and what's got to be something like LEGO's tenth iteration of the Millennium Falcon.
Don't bother looking for spoilers (like the last names of Rey or Finn) or clues in these images. Lucasfilm and The LEGO Group are being very careful to avoid spoilers of any kind prior to the film's release.
Since so many collectors look for Minifigures, we've highlighted the ones based on major characters from the film in blue. In true LEGO tradition, they're ordered from smallest set to largest. Click on any image to enlarge.
