Rogue One Lego Leak: The Raven

During our previous Lego leak, we were hit by multiple DMCA requests and two legal notices from Lego. Sadly, Stormtrooper Larry can’t repel firepower of that magnitude. This time, the photos will be hosted offsite.


Twice each year, Lego comes out with a catalog for the remaining half of the year. And like clockwork, the Lego Catalog for July – December 2016 came out a few days ago.

But the Lego catalog is not the same globally. In fact, there are tiny differences between each country. While Portugal and Spain get 140 pages worth of Lego goodness, the Aussies have to make do with just 100 pages.

While poring over each of the catalogs like the Death Star’s technical readout, we discovered something. For most countries, the Rogue One section contained only a brief teaser, like this one for the US catalog:

However, the Italian catalog included the box set numbers:

What’s more, it went BEYOND  the teaser and included the names for three of the Rogue One ships:

According to the Italian Lego catalog, the names are:

Set 75154 – Raven Deluxe

Set 75155 – Unicorn

Set 75156 – Black Bird

Now let’s cross-reference them with our Lego leak from two months ago:

Voila! Now we can match the set numbers with the names:

Set 75154 – Raven Deluxe is actually the TIE Striker

Set 75155 – Unicorn is the massive U-wing troop transport

Set 75156 – Black Bird is the mysterious black Imperial shuttle

We’re guessing these are just code names for the actual ship models.

After all, the Hasbro Black Series figures for Rogue One have names like “Seal Droid” (K-2SO), “Blue Seal Communicator” (maybe Riz Ahmed), “Shark Trooper” and “Green Seal Leader”. These are obviously placeholders for retail SKUs until the Disney marketing machine gives the green light.

Thanks to our source Just2Good, a renowned Lego insider, we even know the MSRP and brick count for the three ships:

Set 75154 – TIE Striker aka “Raven Deluxe”, 543 pieces, €69.99, £59.99, $69.99

Set 75155 – U-wing aka “Unicorn”, 659 pieces, €79.99, £64.99, $69.99

Set 75156 – Imperial shuttle aka “Black Bird”, 863 pieces, €99.99, £79.99, $89.99

We can see how the brick count and retail prices match with the box sizes from Lego:

While our Bothan analysts pored over the catalog, the spies at Yakface found a corroborating piece of evidence. Two days ago, Entertainment Earth posted a new listing for Hotwheels 2-pack vehicles:

Notice how the 2-packs pit opposing vehicles:

  • Star Destroyer vs. Mon Cal cruisers
  • Snowspeeders vs. Imperial walkers.

What goes against an X-wing and happens to match the Lego set number? The TIE Striker.

And why is it labeled “Raven Deluxe”? Because the normal “Raven” is probably the regular TIE Fighter!

And that concludes our Lego investigation.

Happy weekend!

Rogue One: New Trooper Revealed!

Update (June 2, 2016): We received the following notice from LEGO:

“We have become aware that non-released, confidential and copyrighted LEGO® building instructions have been published on your website. The publication of this copyrighted material has not been authorized and we must therefore request that you immediately remove and delete the content from your website.”

2nd update (June 3, 2016): While Stormtrooper Larry slept, LEGO got impatient and filed a DMCA notice with WordPress. Hence, the images were removed. Please scroll to the bottom to find the link to the images.


 

Earlier today, we got our first look at the new Rogue One sets from Lego. We first reported on their descriptions two days ago, before the images themselves were leaked.

But it turns out we not only get new Legos — we get a new trooper as well.

Mini figure 75154 is the controversial Shore Trooper, who sounds like he lounges by the beach drinking Mai Tais all day long.

But then, who’s Mini figure 75152?

They’re actually these guys:

Bucketheads 1 and 2 have a different helmet. They lack the Scout Trooper-like “snout” of the Shore Trooper, and their armor is white rather than beach tan.

Here’s a clearer look from the Edelweiss catalog leak of the Official Visual Story Guide:

And a side-by-side comparison with the Shore Trooper from the Celebration Europe poster:

So no, the tank troopers (or whatever they’re called) are different from the Shore Troopers. Though both seem to like doing YMCA poses.

So we’re actually getting four trooper classes in Rogue One:

  • The original stormtrooper
  • The black-clad Death Troopers
  • The coastal Shore Troopers
  • And the unnamed vehicle crew trooper

Still, here’s the biggest, baddest trooper of all:

It’s said that the Death Star plans only got stolen because he was taking a leak.


Update: While Stormtrooper Larry slept, LEGO got impatient and filed a DMCA takedown request with WordPress. The image of the mini figures is gone.

But you can still see it here. You’re welcome!
