First Look at The Official Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lego Sets

First Look at The Official Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lego Sets

These new official The Force Awakens Lego sets will be on store shelves on September 4.

Information on Disney's upcoming Star Wars flick: The Force Awakens has been pretty slim, but we may have just gotten a sneak peek on what to expect from the movie from a somewhat unlikely source: Lego sets. Just like every other Star Wars movie before it, The Force Awakens will have its own official Lego sets, and the folks over at Star Wars Forever seem to have gotten their hands on some official promotional images for the upcoming sets.

There are some twists on old favorites, such as the Tie Fighter, X-Wing, and of course, the Millennium Falcon, as well as some new vehicles and faces, like the speeder we saw at the start of the first trailer, and new villain Kylo Ren's command shuttle. Check them all out below:

Do keep in mind that these sets have not been officially revealed yet, and there is a chance that they could be faked... but it does seem fairly likely that these are the sets we're gonna get on September 4.

It looks like both these Lego sets and several other The Force Awakens toys will actually launch ahead of the movie's December 18 release date.

I'm pretty sure that these are real sets. As was already stated, September 4th is going to be a big day for Star Wars. Disney has that day circled in red for sure.

But, the reason I think these are real is different. I work at Target, and last week I was wandering around the toy section and I noticed something. ALL of the Star Wars toys are gone. This baffled me, so I double checked, walking up and down each isle. Nothing save for some Lego things. No figures, no lightsabers, no ships, no masks. There wasn't a single piece of Star Wars merchandise for the toy section. There's not even a spot on the shelf for them now. I asked one of my coworkers and was told that they had put EVERYTHING on clearance and collectors had come in and cleared the entire area.
This seemed really odd to me because, come on it's Star Wars. Why on earth would a major retail chain get rid of all Star Wars toys, especially with a new movie coming out this year? And then it hit me. Disney was probably getting ready to drop a whole lot of new stuff, so we had to get rid of the old stuff. Of course no one at the store knows this. We were just told to make it go away, but I'm betting that's what happened.

So I'm betting these sets are real too.

Aside from Fallout 4, I don't think there was a single moment this year where this statement was more pertinent.

Seriously, Those X-Wing and Millennium Falcon sets look fantastic.

Damn. I'm gonna need a second job.

I second that meme! :)

A black X-Wing? I'm not sure I care for this PC agenda being shoved into our toys.

I can't wait to buy the floating refrigerator.

So now we know there is going to be snow in the upcoming movie.

Gen 4 Millennium Falcon is just the Gen 3 Millennium Falcon but with more dark stone grey and a square radar dish.

I don't like it. It somehow looks boxier. The new radar is just a grey snowplough part, so I'll just stick one of those on my 2011 kit.

The new X-wing however. Hot damn that is one menacing beastie. I want it.

I like the new radar dish. Lando *did* knock the old one off, remember.

I am so relieved that Lego is putting out a villains battle pack that will probably have Kylo Ren in it so I can pass on spending 100 bucks for a goofy looking shuttle. Lego is also putting out a heroes battle pack that will probably have Finn in it so I can pass on buying another Falcon that doesn't seem that different from the Falcon I have. Kind of wished the x-wing was generic and not Poe Dameron's x-wing, though I love the color scheme.

Cool, I guess. I personally collect LEGO animals and other creatures more, so this is not really up my alley.
That X-wing looks nice though.

Also it's worth keeping in mind the LEGO sets like this aren't always 100% accurate at least on the scenes they depict.
The Jurassic World sets for example had scenes that didn't exist (and Dilophosaurus that we only saw as a hologram, although it makes me wonder if that was an appearance cut from the movie...)

*sees the new X-Wing* I WANT IT!

Thirded, though in the case of Fallout 4 it should be this.

Nah, someone already sent in Bottlecaps hoping to get a freebie. But they said it was only going to happen once. :P

:( I liked having money!

Good to see a lot of smaller looking models though to pass the time whilst saving for the bigger ones!

I like to fill the space between my big ships with speeders/droids etc.
