At the entrance to the exhibition hall, toy company Lego has created an image of the helmet of the notorious Star Wars henchman, the Stormtrooper, made up entirely of their small Stormtrooper figurines.
"We can think of no better way to start the next 40 years of Star Wars storytelling than to base it on the love, the passion, the fandom that you all have, and make that the foundation of all the Star Wars stories we tell in the future".More news: Chelsea ace Hazard: We MUST qualify for Champions League
"With the culmination of the Star Wars Saga arriving before the end of the year, the Star Wars: Episode IX panel is one you will definitely not want to miss!" reads the description of the panel on the Celebration site. The full press release and photo gallery from LEGO are included below. There are two removable escape pods and the ship's exterior opens for access to playable areas like the cockpit, cargo hold, conference room and control console. R2-D2 is there too, though I wouldn't count him as a minifigure, and it seems you can swap Leia's skirt for pants if you'd prefer. You can also carry the model using the radar dish, which is a nice detail. When the mission is over, this incredible kids' buildable toy also makes a great centerpiece for any LEGO Star Wars collection.
