Summer 2020 Star Wars Sets

While many other parts of the world received loads of new LEGO® sets on June 1, 2020, North America has to wait. However, we now have one more theme to look forward to. The LEGO® Group just released set images and details for the summer 2020 Star Wars sets. Additionally, this announcement includes information about the 2020 Star Wars Advent Calendar. All sets come out on September 1, along with the previously announced Razor Crest set (75292). Without further ado, here’s what we know about Star Wars.

NOTE: This article has been updated from the original post. Canadian prices have been added, as was a set that had not been included in the original press kit. Additionally, the release date for sets is different from what I was originally told. The set information below includes statistics that I normally use in my reviews.

  • The brick-to-fig ratio compares Minifigure count to brick count. I use this to determine if you are getting a good number of Minifigures for a kit of a certain size. Currently, my average brick-to-fig ratio is 153:1. I include Minifigures and figurines (like droids) in this count, but I do include buildable characters constructed from bricks.
  • The cost-per-brick breaks down the overall price per set by the number of bricks included. This tell you how much each piece in the set costs and gives an idea of whether or not a set is a good value. My average is currently $0.14/brick. I have included in brackets the score I would award each set’s value in a review.

Summer 2020 Star Wars concluding thoughts…

I love Star Wars, but I do not generally collect Star Wars sets. I have purchased a few over the years just to get some of my favorite characters in Minifigure form. Consequently, I am exited about this wave. Ahsoka Tano is one of my favorites, and I do not have her as a Minfigure. Prices for her on the secondary market are exorbitant. You can get a cheaper Clone Wars variant, but I don’t like the overly large eyes the LEGO® Group was printing for a time on Clone Wars Minifigures. Additionally, I am excited about the Advent Calendar for the first time in years. I have skipped the Star Wars calendar several seasons in a row due to a lack of interesting Minifigures. I think this year’s offering boasts a good selection, and I love those tacky sweaters!
