With the excitement over the upcoming Star Wars films like The Last Jedi and the untitled Han Solo movie, it’s no surprise that LEGO has unveiled a new BrickHeadz set featuring two of our favorite characters in classic scenes from the original trilogy. The blocky collectibles were first revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 with their first line of DC Comics superhero and villain figures sets including The Joker, Doctor Strange and Black Panther, Superman and Wonder Woman, and Captain America and Iron Man. Since then, LEGO has expanded their BrickHeadz collection to feature classic characters from Disney and Marvel making them must-have collectibles like the ever-popular Funko Pops! vinyl figures.
A new post on CNET reveals some details and a first-look at the exclusive Star Wars BrickHeadz set that will be available exclusively at NYCC this weekend. The first figure is the bounty hunter Boba Fett wearing his classic green, yellow and red Mandalorian armor pointing his blaster out ready to take on anyone who crosses his path. The second figure is Han Solo in Carbonite, the infamous version of the character when he is betrayed by old friend Lando Calrissian and frozen in carbonite by Vader to transport him to Jabba the Hutt and to test out the process before using it on his son, Luke Skywalker, to deliver him to the Emperor. The kit consists of 329 pieces, costs $40 and will only be available at NYCC. Take a look at the set below:
The LEGO BrickHeadz of Han Solo and Boba Fett isn’t the only Star Wars collectable you can pick up at NYCC this year. Bandai Hobby’s Perfect Grade 1/72 scale Star Wars Millennium Falcon will be available to purchase ahead of its scheduled release later this year at the convention along with exclusive line Funko Pop! Rogue One figurines of K-2SO, Jyn Erso, Saw Gerrera and more. Mark Hamill, known for playing Luke Skywalker, will also be attending the convention and will be holding special event titled “An Evening With Mark Hamill” where fans will get to meet the star himself, so this years NYCC will be special one for Star Wars fans.
