New 'Star Wars Rebels' Lego Set Revealed

By: Dominic Jones

Lego has announced the third Lego set based on the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels (the first two being "The Ghost" and "The Phantom").  MTV revealed the "Wookiee Gunship" set which fans will be able to check out at the Lego booth at San Diego Comic Con this week.  The set will be 570 pieces and includes three Wookiee mini figures and a mini figure of Kanan.  It hits shelves in January of 2015 and will cost $69.99. 

Check out the official description below,
75084 Wookiee Gunship
Protect Wullffwarro and his Jedi friend, Kanan Jarrus, with the powerful LEGO® Star Wars Wookiee Gunship. As featured in the Star Wars: Rebels animated TV series, this amazing battle-ready craft has loads of weapons to see off any invading force, like movable front cannons and an elevating top cannon. When the action really heats up, raise the wings into attack mode and unleash the never-before-seen rapid shooters! If you run low on ammo, open the side hatches to access the spare supply, then lower the rear bay door and unload the mobile gun post. Includes 4 minifigures with assorted weapons: Wullffwarro, Kanan Jarrus and 2 Wookiees. Available January 2015, 570 pieces, $69.99.

Also at San Diego Comic Con, Lego will be displaying a life size Chopper droid made entirely out Lego.  According to MTV, "Chopper contains 11,774 bricks, and took the LEGO Master Builders 143 to design and build. He stands 36 inches tall, and weighs 58 pounds, which means you’re going to hear a lot of people saying, 'Aren’t you awfully big for a droid?' around the LEGO booth."

Sounds like the Lego booth is a can't miss booth at SDCC!
