2022 Star Wars Sets Revealed

The reveals have been steady and bountiful over the last week. We’d be remiss to not update you on the latest 2022 Star Wars sets as well. January 1st sees the release of six new Star Wars sets. We have already covered the Ahsoka Tano Brickheadz reveal, which you can read here. Of the five remaining sets, three will be based on The Empire Strikes Back and the last two will reference The Mandalorian TV show and Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Let’s look at the sets!

THE RAZOR CREST MICROFIGHTER

  • SET #: 75321
  • THEME: Star Wars
  • COST: $13.99 CAD
  • BRICK COUNT: 98
  • MINIFIGURES: 1
  • RELEASE DATE: January 1, 2022
  • COST/BRICK: $0.14 (OK value)
  • BRICK-TO-FIG RATIO: 98 bricks/fig (fair value)

CLONE TROOPER COMMAND STATION

  • SET #: 40558
  • THEME: Star Wars
  • COST: $18.99 CAD
  • BRICK COUNT: 66
  • MINIFIGURES: 3
  • RELEASE DATE: January 1, 2022
  • COST/BRICK: $0.29 (very poor value)
  • BRICK-TO-FIG RATIO: 22 bricks/fig (excellent value)

We haven’t seen too much of the Prequel Trilogy from The LEGO® Group in recent years so this is a fun surprise. The set includes a Clone Commander and two Clone Troopers, plus a small build and weapons. While I love seeing a new prequel set, this one comes with a very poor cost-per-brick value and not much to build. It’s an accessory pack – but not really. And it’s not a battle pack per se…so what can we call this? Undecided. Let’s just be happy for more clones.

DEFENCE OF HOTH

  • SET #: 40557
  • THEME: Star Wars
  • COST: $18.99 CAD
  • BRICK COUNT: 64
  • MINIFIGURES: 3
  • RELEASE DATE: January 1, 2022
  • COST/BRICK: $0.30 (very poor value)
  • BRICK-TO-FIG RATIO: 21 bricks/fig (excellent value)

SNOWTROOPER BATTLE PACK

  • SET #: 75320
  • THEME: Star Wars
  • COST: $24.99 CAD
  • BRICK COUNT: 105
  • MINIFIGURES: 4
  • RELEASE DATE: January 1, 2022
  • COST/BRICK: $0.24 (very poor value)
  • BRICK-TO-FIG RATIO: 26 bricks/fig (excellent value)

HOTH AT-ST

  • SET #: 75322
  • THEME: Star Wars
  • COST: $64.99 CAD
  • BRICK COUNT: 586
  • MINIFIGURES: 3
  • RELEASE DATE: January 1, 2022
  • COST/BRICK: $0.11 (very good value)
  • BRICK-TO-FIG RATIO: 195 bricks/fig (average value)

I think we’ve had at least 9,000 sets from Empire Strikes Back by now so while I am not personally excited, they do make for a cohesive wave. These sets will add to and tie in with the recently released UCS AT-AT to expand the setting with extra figures and accessories. It’s a fun idea that I hope to see applied to more sets across more themes. Plenty of ways to army build and recreate the Battle of Hoth – although it’s a pricey endeavour in this case. The minifigs are well designed and there’s a few new additions like snowy Chewbacca and the Hoth Scout trooper.

SOME LIKE IT HOTH…

And that’s what’s in store for all you Star Wars fans in January 2022. So far. I love Star Wars, but over the years we have gotten SO MANY sets based on the original Trilogy and the Empire Strikes Back in particular. Yes it’s the best movie, but we need to start seeing some love for the prequels – especially Revenge of the Sith. The Episode II clones are a great start – but we need some new designs. There’s been a fairly big gap in any major sets, minifigs or vehicles. And I’m just going to throw this out into the universe: A UCS Venator Class Republic Cruiser. That’s my Christmas wish. Merci.

What do you guys think? Are you going to be building out the Hoth scene with all these new sets and figs? Are you eager for any sets NOT based the original trilogy? What’s your Christmas wish set – real or total long shot? Let us know in the comments, and as always, keep on brickin’.
