Thanks to some clever detective work by CapnRex101 (Chris Pearce) over at Brickset.com, a rather rare running change to the LEGO Star Wars Resistance Bomber (set #75188), from The Last Jedi, has been uncovered. We’ll let Chris explain….
75188 Resistance Bomber was released in 2017, containing five minifigures. These include a Resistance Bomber Pilot who wears a helmet with yellow stripes and does not seem to take direct inspiration from a particular character which is quite unusual in modern LEGO Star Wars sets.
However, the set has now been updated with a brand new Resistance Bomber Pilot. This minifigure includes a unique helmet and head, based upon Finch Dallow. It only appears in recent production runs of 75188 Resistance Bomber and will probably be a rare minifigure, particularly since the set has already been retired in certain regions.
You can take a closer look at the updated minifigure, shown in the instruction manual, after the break…
Rumours abound that this minifigure will only be available in North America, where 75188 Resistance Bomber remains available. We will let you know if any additional information comes to light.
The actor that played Finch Dallow, Kevin Layne, can be seen unveiling his minifigure on Instagram in November 2018….
This could end up being a very rare LEGO Star Wars minifigure — let us know if you mange to track it down — happy hunting!
