Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back is 40 years old this year. So, fans can expect a bit of toys reboot, including LEGO. And reboot LEGO did. We heard LEGO has announced a new LEGO 75288 Star Wars AT-AT.
From the looks of it, it is essentially a reboot of 2003’s 4483, but a lot more minifigures and a tad more pieces. The LEGO 75288 Star Wars AT-AT Set packs 1,267 pieces and will come with 6 minifigures. Like the 2003 set, it will have a buildable speeder bike which can be stashed inside AT-AT.
Here are the official details:
LEGO 75288 Star Wars AT-AT
Number of pieces: 1,267
Minifigures: 6 (Luke Skywalker, General Veers, 2x AT-AT Drivers, 2x Snowtroopers)
Highlights: Different sections of the AT-AT open up for play, spring-loaded shooters, buildable speeder bike, winch to pull Luke up, thermal detonator element, Luke’s lightsaber, and Snowtroopers’ tripod gun.
Judging from the product images and feature list, I think the 75288 will be an improvement over the 2003’s. For one, it will have proper winch for Luke, at a movie-accurate part of the AT-AT.
Availability is TBA and as for the price, it will retail for $159.99 as stated above.
