Preliminary images have surfaced from LEGO’s product catalog which show us the two ships that will be the first LEGO Star Wars Rebels line toys. The Ghost, set number: 75053 and Phantom, set number: 75048.
Rumor of these sets broke at the beginning of this month, some fans have been able to see them at the recent London Toy Fair and more will no doubt see them at the upcoming New York Toy Fair.
Twitter user @12MG12 pointed us to these videos as well as the Eurobricks.com message board where a poster claims to have seen the LEGO catalog and gives us the rumored character names of the mini-figures that come with The Ghost set.
According to forum poster “just2good” the mini-figures listed in the catalog for The Ghost are: Ezra Bridger, Kannan Jarrus, Hera Syndulla, and a Stormtrooper.
Now according to the product descriptions on Kiddiwinks, Ezra comes with the Phantom set and Zeb comes with The Ghost. So one of the sources appears to be wrong. I’m betting it is Zeb in The Ghost set with Kannan, Hera and the Stormtrooper and Ezra in the Phantom set with the astromech droid.
The mini-figure of the astromech droid is almost certainly R1-D1, whom we saw concept art for at Celebration Europe II. The far left mini-figure in The Ghost set has a rather odd head and makes me wonder if that figure was not yet complete. It has me wondering if this is Kanan Jarrus what species he is or even if he is the other droid we saw at Celebration Europe II. Concept art of both known Rebels droids is included below for reference.
Our friend Jason Ward at MakingStarWars.net speculates that the rumored character of Hera Syndulla may be related to The Clone Wars era Twi’lek freedom fighter Cham Syndulla. This bit of continuity would make a lot of sense and also help establish one of the various roots of the rebellion.
