LEGO has revealed this morning a brand new 2,812 piece set is coming and it is based on a major location in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. The set revolves around the betrayal Lando committed in Cloud City.
The set is aptly named “Betrayal at Cloud City” and it comes with a whopping 18 minifigures. These are not no named characters either with Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Luke, Leia, Han Solo, Chewie, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Lando all getting minifigures. There’s also guards and other familiar faces as well and even two versions of Luke Skywalker (one of which has a black eye from Darth Vader beating him up!).
The coolest thing about this set is it includes many different scenes from the movie from the dining room where Darth Vader surprised our heroes,
to the room where Han was frozen in carbonite, and
and even the landing dock where they threw Han into Slave I.
The set will run $349.99 and will be released October 1st.
Regardless of how you feel about Solo: A Star Wars Story you have to admit the sets LEGO has put out for it are impressive. Just feast your eyes on the Imperial AT-Hauler, the Cloud-Rider Swoop set, and the Imperial Conveyex Transport!
