Adding more substance to our initial report pertaining to seven new LEGO sets based around The Force Awakens being slated for release later this year, Pocket-lint has received word from LEGO confirming said number of sets wil indeed be arriving at retail.

Lego has confirmed to Pocket-lint that it will be releasing a number of sets to coincide with the launch of the new Star Wars movie releasing later this year.

The seven sets will be launched in time for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and feature key moments and characters, from the new film.

Being shown off to a select few important people at the London Toy Fair behind very closed doors, Lego was coy to detail what the new sets would feature or what characters would become minifigures.
