He’s rad, he’s red and he’s a Lego Sith trooper!
Are you standing in line for Comic-Con yet? You may be too late already! Lego just announced their third batch of exclusives as well as the subject of their annual life size statue: a Sith trooper from the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. It’s also the debut of this scarlet foe and the internet is abuzz over it!
You can catch all the Lego wonders at the Lego booth — #2829 in Hall D.
The statue is a reminder that with Episode IX, the saga of the Skywalkers finally comes to a close, ending the story of Star Wars forever. How bittersweet to know there will be no more Star Wars movies!***
This Lego statue is a fine tribute to that heritage, however. According to Lego, this trooper stands 6’2″, weighs 169 pounds and took 258 human-hours and 34,307 bricks to bring to intimidating life!
As for the exclusive, here’s the details:
