2017 brought many LEGO sets to the Star Wars theme. But as the end of the year approaches, we can’t help but get excited about things to come! Here are the expected LEGO Star Wars 2018 sets to come!

The LEGO Star Wars 2018 Sets Preview

This year brought a lot of very cool Star Wars stuff. We’ve seen plenty new sets, minifigures and of course, The Last Jedi! So it’s expected that 2018 will bring even more interesting sets, many of which bring elements of the new movie.

Here at Ninja Brick, we’re all excited to see what the new year will bring, so let’s take a look at what we already know about the new LEGO Star Wars 2018 sets. For great deals on older and newer Star Wars sets, check out Silly Billy’s Toy Shop!

Brickheadz

LEGO Kylo Ren and Rey Brickheadz 2018 Sets

The year of 2018 will bring three more Brickheadz sets: Kylo Ren (41603) and Rey (41602). These follow in the wake of a Kylo Ren and Rey Brickheadz set with both (41489). The latter is exclusive to Target and costs around $19.99.

Microfighters

Microfighters are cheaper sets with simpler models and a low piece count. These sets are recommended for children ages 6 and up. We’ll get several Star Wars microfighter sets in 2018. These are a great way to get minifigures, especially ones that usually only come in very expensive sets. Let’s check them out!

LEGO 75193 Star Wars Millennium Falcon Microfighter

LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Millennium Falcon Microfighter Box LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Millennium Falcon Microfighter Build

This set will come with a Chewbacca minifigure and follows on the steps of the 2017 movie The Last Jedi. The Millennium Falcon has many different full-sized sets, with two releases last year. This simplified, micro version of it is appropriate for children as young as 6. It should have around 92 pieces and sell for a $9,99 price tag.

LEGO 75194 First Order TIE Fighter

This microfighter set features a First Order TIE Fighter in a total of 91 pieces. As with the new 2018 Millennium Falcon microfighter, it should cost around $9,99 and come with a minifigure. LEGO seems to suggest that the two sets work together in a TIE fighter battle sequence. The minifigure comes with a blaster pistol and the TIE fighter shoots a missile.

LEGO 75195 Ski Speeder vs. First Order Walker Microfighters

Ski Speeder vs. First Order Walker Microfighter LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Box Ski Speeder vs. First Order Walker Microfighter LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Build

This cool little set should have around 216 pieces and includes two very cool minifigures. The Ski Speeder is a new vehicle that appears in The Last Jedi trailer. The First Order Walker is also very interesting and has a stud shooter, which adds to the whole set. As it has two vehicles and minifigures, it’s very playable. It comes with a resistance fighter pilot and a First Order Walker driver. The resistance fighter pilot minifigure that has a new hairpiece, adding to the playability of the set. As this is a 2-in-one Microfighter LEGO set, its price should be around $19.99.

LEGO 75196 A-Wing vs. TIE Silencer Microfighters

A-Wing vs. TIE Silencer Microfighter LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Box A-Wing vs. TIE Silencer Microfighter LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Build

The A-Wing vs. TIE Silencer set follows the LEGO Star Wars 2018 sets tendency for more dynamic and playable Microfighter sets. beyond that, this one offers a unique opportunity to get the Kylo Ren minifigure for very cheap. This set should cost around $19.99 and have 188 pieces! This version of Kylo Ren doesn’t come with the mask, but it has a very cool look for a very low price. This set also includes a mini-stand, which is rare in Microfighter sets.

Polybags

Polybags are small sets with few pieces and minifigures which come, as the name suggests, in a small plastic bag rather than a box. These tend to be promotional and cheaper than boxed sets, but they still offer playability and pieces for collectors.

LEGO 30380 Kylo Ren’s Shuttle Polybag

Kylo Ren's Shuttle Polybag

We don’t know more details about this polybag, but we know it’s Kylo Ren themed. It’s possible we’ll get a minifigure with it and at least some buildable (if very simple) version of the shuttle, but there are no more details revealed just yet. This will be the second polybag featuring Kylo Ren’s shuttle, the previous being the LEGO 30279 one.

LEGO Buildable Figure Sets

Buildable figures are brick-made, big-scaled, realistic figurines of common characters. The Star Wars buildable figures collection includes many characters from the super-famous saga, but this year will bring at least two (rumoured five) new Buildable Figure sets.

LEGO 75533 Boba Fett

Following on the success of the Jango Fett buildable figure, the new LEGO Star Wars 2018 collection will bring a Boba Fett buildable figure! This set looks gorgeous from the pictures we’ve seen. It has 144 pieces. Unfortunately, we don’t know the price tag just yet.

LEGO 75534 Darth Vader

This might be a surprise to some as 2017 already had a Darth Vader buildable figure set, which is still on shelves. Nonetheless, the 2018 version has its own characteristics, as it comes with a removable Darth Vader mask, which shows his face underneath. All in all, a very cool set. Should have a total of 168 pieces.

Other Buildable Figures

There are rumours of a Darth Maul set (75537, expected April 2018) and at least two more Buildable Figure sets (75536 and 75535). Unfortunately, we still don’t have any pictures for the Darth Maul set or information about the other two just yet.

LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets

There will be several new sets focused on the Last Jedi film. Released in December 2017, this is Episode VIII and the latest of the new saga! It features Kylo Ren, Poe, Rey, Finn and many more new characters, and the sets are no different. Other than the 75197, 7500 and 75202 sets mentioned below, there is at least one more unknown Last Jedi set — LEGO 75201.

LEGO 75197 First Order Specialists Battle Pack

LEGO Star Wars 2018 First Order Specialists Battle Pack Box LEGO Star Wars 2018 First Order Specialists Battle Pack Build

With 108 pieces and priced around $14.99, the main appeal of this set is the exclusive First Order Executioner minifigures, with their awesome electric staffs. They’re very interesting minifigures for such a cheap set, and they don’t seem to be part of any bigger sets, either. Other than this, the set is pretty okay, there doesn’t seem to have much in it. The set also comes with a turret sort of vehicle that has spring-loaded shooters and blaster pistols with stud shooters.

LEGO 75200 Ahch-To Island Training

Ahch-To Island Training LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Box Ahch-To Island Training LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Build

This is one of the most interesting upcoming sets we know of! For one, it has a hut that’s very similar to Yoda’s. It comes with several accessories such as a pan, a fish and a transparent cup. But the most interesting aspects of this set are the minifigures. This one comes with older Luke Skywalker for the first time. It also brings a Rey minifigure and a Porg. The latter appeared for the first time in the LEGO 75192 Millennium Falcon.

At around the $30 price range and with 251 pieces, it’s a much more affordable way to get a Porg minifigure as well as older Luke.

LEGO 75202 Defense of Crait

Defense of Crait LEGO 2018 Star Wars Set Box Defense of Crait LEGO 2018 Star Wars Full Build Defense of Crait Speeder LEGO 2018 Star Wars

This set brings a Crait speeder as well as some ground units to play out an actual battle scene. It’s one of the largest sets we know of, at 746 pieces, and one of the most expensive as well ($84.99). Still, it comes with five minifigures, including Captain Poe Dameron, Resistance Admiral, Resistance Trooper and two First Order Snow Troopers.

The speeder, which is the main attraction of this set, has a strong resemblance with B-wings and resistance transport pods, but it’s slimmer and different enough to be its own thing.

LEGO Han Solo Movie Sets

Yes, there will be some new LEGO Star Wars 2018 sets focused on the Han Solo movie. Unfortunately, we know nothing about them other than the numbers: 75209, 75210, 75211 and 75212. There is no release date yet.

Other LEGO Star Wars 2018 Sets

We’ve covered most of the sets we know of, relating to the new and upcoming movie and classic characters, but that isn’t all! We have several more sets coming, including with older movie themes, as well as the Clone Wars series. Let’s check them out.

LEGO 75198 Tatooine Battle Pack

The Mos Eisley Cantina will get its own set in 2018. There’s very little we know about this at the moment, but it has 376 pieces. But from the pictures we managed to find, it looks pretty cool, so that’s something to see soon! It comes with Greedo and Han Solo minifigures.
