LEGO Group’s New Star Wars: Return of The Jedi 40th Anniversary Dioramas

Revealed at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023, the LEGO Group has created two dynamic new releases celebrating the 40th anniversary of Episode VI: the Endor Speeder Chase Diorama and the Emperor’s Throne Room Diorama, building sets immortalizing two of the film’s most iconic sequences in LEGO bricks.

They arrive May 1 and are available for pre-order today.

The Speeder Chase set consists of 608 pieces.

Build a dynamic snapshot of Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker’s pursuit of a Scout Trooper from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

It includes three LEGO minifigures (Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and a Scout Trooper), two removable speeder bikes with transparent stands (allowing the bikes to tilt, conveying movement), two buildable trees, and more forest elements. ($79.99)

The Emperor’s Throne Room, an 807-piece release, includes Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and Emperor Palpatine minifigures (complete with lightsabers and Sith lightning), rotating throne, and more.

Both sets also feature a plaque with the Return of the Jedi 40th anniversary logo and a memorable quote from each scene.

For fans of the last film in the original trilogy, it is pointless to resist — as Darth Vader himself says in the movie. ($99.99)
