The new Star Wars Jedi Starfighter

In the not so distant year of 2010, LEGO launched an UCS set of Obi-Wan’s Jedi Starfighter.

It was a beautiful and huge set. But now LEGO decided to launch a new version of it, a smaller one with a new accessory: the Hyperspace Ring. Yes, that huge ring is what allowed the Jedi Starfighters to travel through hyperspace.

I have to say that the set is not amazing although it seems to be have a lot of parts set, specially in the ring. It’s a really good piece for the ones that collect Star Wars fighters because there are not many versions of Star Wars fighters with an Hyperspace ring (to my knowledge, only 1 released in 2007, a blue Jedi Starfighter of episode 3 also piloted by Obi Wan).

Although the fighter is not the most beautiful made, the minifigures that this set brings are awesome. Jango Fett, young Boba Fett, Obi Wan and R4-P17.

Jango only had 1 version in the past (in set 75015, Corporate Alliance Tank Droid).

Young Boba Fett, although has many versions as an adult, only has 2 has a child (one in 2013 advent calendar and another in 7153: Jango Fett’s Slave I of 2002).

R4-P17 has 2 versions of it: 1 in the small set 75006 Jedi Starfighter & Planet Kamino and in the 75135 Obi-Wan’s Jedi Interceptor released in 2016.

Finally Obi Wan has already 28 minifigures so probably this new minifigure will not bring anything new.

Rumours say it will be released in May and will cost $129.

A really nice set for the ones that collect Star Wars Starfighter. One thing is certain: It will be a very nice build!
