With The Ahsoka Show On The Horizon, New Sets Are Poised For Launch
Star Wars, a universe filled with diverse, iconic characters, and a story that has captivated millions around the globe for decades, continues to inspire imaginative play and creativity through the LEGO® Star Wars range. This summer, the brand has added another gem to their collection – Ahsoka Tano’s T-6 Jedi Shuttle (75362). Based on the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, this set provides kids with an engaging and interactive play experience, further fueling their love for the legendary Star Wars franchise.
An Overview Of Set 75362
At the heart of this set is the T-6 Jedi Shuttle, a detailed brick recreation of Ahsoka Tano’s starship. Ahsoka, the brave former Padawan of Anakin Skywalker, is central to many intriguing storylines in the Star Wars universe, and this starship plays a key role in her adventures.
The T-6 was built by Verpine hives of Slayn & Korpil, and was characterized by a semicircular design with a rotating engine block and cockpit that aligned with the rest of the ship. It maintained a horizontal position during landing, supported by three landing gears. The shuttle had ejector seats, which, when deployed, enclosed the occupant in a cushioned survival capsule. As it was primarily a diplomatic shuttle, it lacked weaponry but included a hyperdrive and had a spacious interior for comfortable space travel. During the Clone Wars, these shuttles were decorated with a Galactic Roundel and painted in the colors of the Grand Army of the Republic, remaining unarmed. Decades later, T-6 shuttles in Lando Calrissian’s fleet were equipped with aftermarket weapons on either side of the cockpit.
The LEGO® team, in their unwavering commitment to authenticity and attention to detail, has ensured that the T-6 shuttle exhibits intricate detailing that’s in line with its Star Wars counterpart. The spaceship boasts an opening cockpit for the minifigures, two stud shooters that add to the action play, and two storage compartments for storing tools and weapons, adding a layer of realism and making for an immersive play experience.
What further adds to the play value of this set is the flight and landing modes. Kids can fold in the landing gear, which will automatically adjust the wings for flight mode, offering them the opportunity to recreate epic space battles or peaceful interstellar explorations.
A Stellar Cast of Characters And Minifigures With The T-6
The set includes four LEGO® Star Wars minifigures: Ahsoka Tano, Sabine Wren, Professor Huyang, and Marrok. Each character comes with their unique accessories, bringing their individual traits to life.
The Ahsoka Tano minifig, the Togruta female Jedi, comes with two grey lightsabers, ready to combat any threats. She’s a symbol of courage and resilience, embodying the spirit of the Jedi.
The Sabine Wren minifig, a human female Mandalorian warrior and a key figure in the early rebellion against the Galactic Empire, is equipped with two blasters. She’s an icon of revolution and freedom, with her graffiti art featuring prominently in the rebellion’s emblem.
The Marrok minfig, an Imperial Inquisitor, provides a contrast with a double-bladed lightsaber. Marrok’s role after the fall of the Galactic Empire brings a darker edge to the set, offering a broad range of storylines and battles for kids to recreate.
Lastly, there’s the Professor Huyang minifig, a Mark IV architect droid professor who has educated Jedi younglings on how to construct their lightsabers for a thousand generations. With his wrench accessory, Huyang adds a scholarly dimension to the set, fostering imaginative play that extends beyond simple combat scenarios.
