    Three new Star Wars LEGO sets have been revealed -- they recreate some iconic scenes from A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back!



    The LEGO Star Wars Death Star Trash Compactor ($89.99), the LEGO Star Wars Death Star Trench Run Diorama ($59.99), and the LEGO Star Wars Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama ($79.99) can be preordered now, and will release on April 26, 2022.

    StarWars.com has released a wonderful behind-the-scenes look with the team that helped bring these sets to life brick by brick.

    These special LEGO sets are labeled 18+ due to the nature and complexity of the builds. LEGO has really been leaning into creating sets specifically for adults with an enhanced lineup of Ultimate Collector's Series sets and these newer diorama sets.

    It sounds like there will be more waves of sets on the way, as they're proving to be a successful draw for fans and collectors alike.



    Each set has an iconic phrase displayed at the forefront of the set. 'One thing's for sure. We're all gonna be a lot thinner!'' by Han Solo is on the Trash Compactor build; ''The Force is strong with this one'' by Darth Vader is on the Trench Run build; and ''Do. Or do not. There is no try'' by Yoda is on the Dagobah build.

    Nostalgia runs high with these, with the inclusion of incredible details like a dianoga's head and closing walls in the Trash Compactor set, the sinking X-Wing piece in the Dagobah set, or the iconic TIE Fighters chasing after Luke in the Trench Run set.



    Will you be adding one (or all) of these to your collection? Read the full interview on StarWars.com, then preorder all these sets on LEGO.com today!

    they're nice sets for sure - but aiming for the adult market and pitching for a higher price point as a result is a bit on the sneaky side.

    i'm bound to get one eventually, but thing I'll hang out for a sale price
