LEGO announce new Star Wars sets for Force Friday

It’s a pretty exciting time to be a Star Wars fan. The comics have been consistently great, The Mandalorian looks absolutely incredible, and The Rise of Skywalker trailer is still giving me chills.

Oh, and LEGO have also announced a bunch of new sets that are coming this week.

Stretching from the original trilogy to Episode IX to the Disney+ original series, there’s a set here for any fan of the franchise. I’m loving the buildable Yoda myself, and you can never go wrong with an A-Wing or the Millennium Falcon. Check out the details and the sets below.
