Star Wars fans are feasting with news and reveals, as LEGO have given us our first look at an upcoming Prequel playset – 75342 Republic Fighter Tank!
There are no pricing and release details yet, but the set comes with Mace Windu, 2x 187th Legion Clone Troopers (according to Brickset’s Capnrex – an Airborne Trooper as well, thanks for the ID), and 2 Battle Droids.
The presence of the 187th Legion Clone Troopers are a nice surprise, given that we’re getting Purple Clone Troopers, to go with Mace Windu, but these were technically from Star Wars Legends perspective, and were never present on-screen in the movies or any canon TV series.
Pretty interesting to see LEGO extend into Star Wars Legends, and this of course opens up so many other possibilities that LEGO could tap into for inspiration and future LEGO Star Wars sets.
In any case, it’s great to see the Prequels continue to get more love from LEGO, contrary to what the LEGO Star Wars community might think/feel.
