Ahead of the official launch of Star Wars: The Last Jedi mechandise with Force Friday, LEGO has officially revealed the new range of sets coming to a toy store near you. Available from tomorrow, September 1st, the new sets feature everything we’ve come to expect from a new wave of LEGO Star Wars, new designs, new minifigures and the usual hints at what could be coming from the new cinema release in December.
Thanks to a leak earlier this year, many of the set designs had already surfaced on the web, but now LEGO and Lucasfilm have officially announced they’re coming and provided details including prices for the fans. Here’s a rundown on what you’re likely to be spending your hard-earned cash on over the next few months.

Own your very own LEGO® BB-8! Turn the wheel to spin the head and turn another to open the hatch and see the welding torch pop out, just like it did in the movie! You can also sit BB-8 on the stand so you can show your friendly droid to all your friends when they come to visit!
#75190 First Order Star Destroyer (RRP $159.99/£129.99)
Join Supreme Leader Snoke as he rules the galaxy aboard the mighty First Order Star Destroyer! Fire the stud shooters to defeat enemy ships and then open the panels to play inside.

When you’re ready to move out, grab the handle on top and zoom into action at hyperspeed!
