‘We have had the pleasure of creating hundreds of Star Wars-inspired models over the past two decades since we first launched LEGO Star Wars sets. As Lucasfilm celebrates their 50th anniversary, it seemed fitting to challenge ourselves and push the limits of what is possible with LEGO bricks by recreating a fan-favourite Star Wars character in great detail like we have never achieved before,’ said Creative Lead Jens Kronvold Frederiksen. ‘We are delighted with the result and hope our fans get as much joy out of building the sets as we did designing it.’
You can find the set on the LEGO 2021 checklist.
