LEGO unveils its Star Wars: The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle inspired by Disney’s new animated series

The LEGO Group has extended its LEGO Star Wars line-up once again, this time with a new launch inspired by the new Star Wars animated series – currently on Disney+ – Star Wars: The Bad Batch.

The new LEGO Star Wars: The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle construction set has been created for kids aged nine and upwards, as well as all of those Star Wars aficionados looking to update their collections, enabling fans worldwide to re-enact their own clone missions.

In the new series, the Attack Shuttle is piloted by a group of elite clones known as the Bad Batch, made up of Tech, Echo, Hunter, Wrecker and Crosshair. Each member has now been recreated as a LEGO minifigure in the 969-piece construction set.

The Attack Shuttle construction set also comes with two land speeders, while the model features a number of details to help Star Wars and LEGO fans alike play out their own missions, with weapon storage in the cabin, foldable wings and spring-loaded shooters.

Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, creative lead of LEGO Star Wars at the LEGO Group said: “I’m thrilled that we can finally reveal this great new model that celebrates the launch of the new animated series. Star Wars: The Bad Batch characters are so unique and deserve an awesome ride, which they definitely got in the Attack Shuttle. We hope it inspires many young fans to relive their favourite scenes from the new series, as well as to come up with their own storylines.”

Priced from $99.99 USD/EUR, £89.99 GBP, the set is now available for pre-order from LEGO.com and will launch for general sale on August 1st, 2021 at LEGO.com, LEGO Stores and other retailers globally .
