AHSOKA LEGO STAR WARS SET REVEALS THE RETURN OF CHOPPER AND JACEN SYNDULLA
The new LEGO Star Wars set for Star Wars: Ahsoka is now available to pre-order for $159.99. The set contains LEGO brick versions of the Ghost & Phantom II starships, which will appear in the series. The upcoming live-action series features Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who is taking over the role of captain of the spaceship Ghost in live action.
The LEGO set features a buildable Ghost model and two lever-activated spring-loaded shooters, a dual LEGO minifigure cockpit with a removable front section, a cabin with two opening hatches, a detachable turret with a cannon (non-shooting), and space for a LEGO minifgure.
Also included in the set is the new Phantom II shuttle with an opening for a minifigure in the cockpit and a storage compartment. The set also contains five minifigures, including the now General Hera Syndulla, Chopper (C1-10P), Hera’s son Jacen Syndulla, First Officer Hawkins, and Lt. Beyta. The Ghost starship is over 4.5 inches high and about 13.5 inches long. Fans can also use the LEGO Builder app to get instructions on the build and let you zoom in and rotate for a 3D digital version of the real-life construction models as you build, track progress, and save sets.

Jacen Syndulla was first introduced in the epilogue of Star Wars Rebels. Jacen was revealed as the biological son of both Hera Syndulla and Jedi Kanan Jarrus (aka Caleb Dume), who died saving Hera in the final season. It appeared that Hera and Kanan had a relationship all along, and Jacen was conceived before Kanan died. The set appears to confirm that both Jacen and Chopper will be appearing in the series at some point.
Along with the returning characters, it looks like there will be new allies appearing in the upcoming live-action series who are featured in this set, such as First Officer Hawkins and Lt. Beyta. It looks like they will also have notable roles in the upcoming show, which should be interesting to see what they get to do as friends and allies of Hera.
Star Wars: Ahsoka debuts on Disney+ next month. The show will have a two-episode premiere starting August 23 on the streaming service.
