Update: Since our initial coverage, we’ve received first look at several upcoming Mandaloran kits, as well as two Clone Wars Creations
Summer is rapidly approaching. Here are the details on the upcoming season of LEGO Star Wars. The lineup is starting to fall into place. After getting a first look at the wave from last week’s Bad Batch Shuttle debut, we’ve now confirmed some reports that indicate we’ll see a new UCS AT-ATThe film is accompanied with a series of sets that are centered on Mandalorian. For more information, please see below.
Last time we checked in, we saw what was on top of the LEGO Star Wars summer LEGO Star Wars collection. We knew what to expect from the new line-up. Although some items were confirmed in January, like R2-D2 and the Bad Batch Shuttle, others have been delayed such as the Republic Gunship.
As of now, all of the sets are slated to launch on September 1, similarly to when last year’s summer Wave was released. And while not specifically themed to a particular film or Disney+ season, now that we have an updated list of what to expect, it’s clear there is a heavy emphasis on the Mandalorian. But let’s dive in and check out all of the upcoming kits.
LEGO Star Wars summer 2021
UCS Republic Gunship
roup, we’ve already been privy to quite a bit of information on the upcoming UCS Republic Gunship. We have confirmed that the set will be available for sale since our March interview with LEGO Designers. $350 It has a total of 3,292 parts.
The minifigure Jedi Bob was not included in the set previously, much to our dismay. We now know which characters will be appearing. The following is appropriate for the Attack of the Clones theme. UCS Republic Gunship will include Mace Windu as well as a minifigure of a Clone Captain.
Bad Batch Shuttle
When 9to5Toys received the first word about these upcoming Bad Batch Shuttles, it wasn’t yet confirmed. Group was able to confirm additional confirmations from other sources and unveil the LEGO set.
Let’s now move on to the next step. LEGO Group hasn’t officially confirmed yet.
First rumors about the upcoming set were discovered. LEGO Star Wars sets were all the talk, but it was all about the latest brick-built death. Star. But it looks like we’ll have to wait until later down the line to see a new version of the space station, as our latest reports indicate that the fall will see the launch of a different icon from the Galactic Empire.
Still scheduled to enter at $800Price point: This creation of 6,782 pieces will now allegedly be the AT-AT. Fans have been waiting for this vehicle to be manufactured. UCS We’ve been waiting for this moment for many years. Now it seems like we finally have it. Given how lanky the vehicle is, it’s long been thought that the LEGO Although Group had difficulty making it a large model, it is now one of the most popular. It is possible that the bricks included with the launch will be able achieve this. Our current reports note that we’ll see a launch following the actual summer wave, with LEGO UCSAT-AT launches in time for Black Friday
As of now, this is the kit that we’re least certain of seeing launch this year. With the UCS Republic Gunship already being set in stone and the previous launch of the R2-D2, it’s rare to see three collectible sets of this caliber launch in a single year. Out of all of the potential sets, I’m not entirely sold that this will actually launch come fall.
Gideon’s Light Cruiser
The LEGO Star Wars Summer Wave’s largest creation is at the forefront. Gideon’s Light Cruiser from the Mandalorian. Featured throughout the latter portion of season two, the part count and overall size of this ship’s brick-built debut are still up in the air. We do know that it’ll clock in at $160 It also includes various minifigures, such as Mando himself and Moff Gideon. That’s alongside Cara Dune despite the actress no longer being involved with the series and an unconfirmed character, which will likely end up being a Dark Trooper minifig.
We’ve never seen a ship quite like this in LEGO form before, which is an apprenticed departure of the usual. So count on this being one of the year’s more popular creations from a galaxy far, far away, especially considering it’ll likely include quite a few exclusive minifigures.

Darth Vader Meditation Chamber
The Mandalorian themeing is no longer available. LEGO Group will also be releasing a new kit in the coming year. These kits are targeted at older builders this summer. Similar to the Bespin Duel set released last year as a limited-edition kit, we’ll be getting a 663-piece recreation of the Darth Vader Meditation Chamber from Empire Strikes Back.
This kit includes Vader himself and is a great addition to any collection. More Detail-oriented models are more important than the average kit. It is expected that it will clock in at$70The Sith Lord is also included in the mix, as well as two additional minifigures. Admiral Piett, the first brick-built Imperial officer, will join a typical stormtrooper.
Returning to Mandalorian theming 2021 LEGO Star Wars summer, we’re also getting the latest rendition of the Slave 1. While it’s still not set in stone on whether we’ll see a model updated specifically to fit in with season two of the series or the upcoming Book of Boba Fett Disney+ series, the set will be one of the smallest renditions of the bounty hunter’s ship to date.
Stacking up to 592 pieces, it’ll be a tad larger than the version included in 2018’s Betrayal at Cloud City set. It is $50Its price tag is also very reasonable, as it is only a fraction of the commemorative 20th anniversary edition. Star Wars wave Boba Fett is only included in terms of minifigures.
Mando Advent Calendar
Every summer Wave of LEGO Star Wars will see a new version of the annual Advent Calendar. 2021This year’s is no exception. Though in a first for the festive kit, this year’s will be themed quite heavily around the Mandalorian. It will include 335 pieces including the usual assortment of minifigures as well as miniature build at the. $40Price point

The clock will then go off at that point. $40The Imperial Troop Transport from season 2 will also be available at lower prices. The vehicle, which measures 478 pieces, includes a pair Stormtroopers and a Greef Karga as well as a mortar trooper.
One of the more iconic scenes from the Mandalorian, we’re also going to be getting a 258-piece set based around the Beskar Forge. It includes minifigures from Armorer and Heavy Infantry Mandalorian. It will retail for around $199 $30. Hopefully, it’ll include some new printed 1 x 2 tiles with Beskar printing on them to really complete the set’s theme.
Duel on Mandalore
This is the most affordable set of the LEGO Star Wars The lineup summerOf 2021, we’re also getting a set based around the Clone Warsseries. Stacking up to 147 pieces, the Duel on Mandalore kit will depict Ahsoka Tano’s duel against Darth Maul and enters at a $20Price tag. Each minifigure comes with a brick-built model, as well other structures from this scene.
Brick Headz 150
And last up, it looks like we’re going to see the debut of the 150th BrickHeadz figure by the end of 2021Also. We also covered the results of the last year’s vote. LEGOIdeas Vote, which saw Star WarsThe milestone is being celebrated with the theme “Win”. Alongside being able to weigh in on which property would get the honor of being the 150th brick-built figure, fans would also note which character they’d like to see. Now that the results are in, it seems that Jar Jar Binks was the most popular.
It is not known if the Gungan will be seen in Brick Headz. It seems that the release will be before the year’s end. Right now, we’re sitting at the 145th Brick Headz release with the recent Harry Potter kits, so it shouldn’t be long until the latest Star Wars One is not revealed.
