Yesterday we were pleased to bring you the official LEGO announcement and accompanying photos of the new 1,768-piece Tantive IV set (75244) that will be available for collectors to pick up next month on May 3. LEGO also held a special panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 to commemorate 20 years of building sets from the GFFA. The official site provides us with a recap from that panel via this update.
Not only does 2019 mark the 20th anniversary of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and Star Wars Celebration, but that of LEGO Star Wars, as well. A full playset of LEGO Star Wars creators assembled on the Galaxy Stage at Star Wars Celebration Chicago to share reminiscences, insights, and a couple brand-new announcements. Here’s what we learned.
