(NEW YORK, NY) LEGO held their annual Toy Fair media event this year and unveiled some great new sets slated for release this fall. The larger sets this year include an all-new Millennium Falcon and Republic Frigate. Fans of The Clone Wars mini-series can now also collect the first ever Savage Opress mini figure that is included with the new Sith Nightspeeder.
Guests at the event were given a specially packaged exclusive Han Solo and Chewbacca LEGO Miniland figures. This are exact replicas that will be displayed in the new Star Wars themed Miniland attraction that will open next month at LEGOLAND Caifornia. A third Minilander, Boba Fett, comes unassembled in a mystery bag to put together and add to the box for your own "mini" Miniland.
