During LEGO CON 2022 LEGO officially announced 2 new LEGO Star Wars sets ready for their 2023 lineup.
But a behind-the-scenes video played at LEGO CON showed well-loved LEGO designer César Soares teasing a large blurry image.
He claimed this image to be the whole 2023 lineup of LEGO Star Wars sets.
This reveal and behind-the-scenes video left fans trying to decipher what the censored 2023 lineup could include.
Typically, there are about 40 LEGO Star Wars sets released every year.
On August 19th 2022, PromoBricks reported that at least 15 LEGO Star Wars sets will be released in the 2023 winter wave and later waves of LEGO releases.
Typically, LEGO releases its winter wave on January 1st. But there are some rumored releases for sometime in March and May, too.
2023 is set to be a big year for Star Wars when it comes to Star Wars media. If rumors are to be believed, then Star Wars is in for just as big a year in LEGO form.

LEGO 75344 Slave I Microfighter
Following the annual tradition that has been ongoing since 2014, LEGO will presumably kick off the 2023 LEGO Star Wars releases with a Microfighter set. These are usually expected to be released on January 1st.
For 2023, LEGO is rumored to reimagine Boba Fett’s fighter ship in microform with the release of the LEGO 75344 Slave I Microfighter.
The Slave I Microfighter is thought to be released January 1st 2023 at an estimated $9.99.
This is the same retail price as LEGO 75321 The Razor Crest Microfighter, 2022’s Microfighter also released on January 1st.
A version of Boba Fett’s ship was included in the 2021 summer LEGO Star Wars wave.
The set (LEGO 75312 Boba Fett’s Starship) is still available, costing $49.99. It comprises of 593 pieces and includes 2 minifigures – Boba Fett himself and The Mandalorian.
Fans can expect the LEGO 75344 Slave I Microfighter to be a scaled-back version of the 2021 Boba Fett ship.
While a piece count is yet to be determined, fans should not be worried about a lack of detail in the build itself. LEGO has done an excellent job with past Microfighters of being able to scale down a bigger set without losing any detail.
Compared to the bigger 2021 LEGO Boba Fett ship, the 2023 Microfighter is rumored to only have 1 minifigure. This is to be expected of a Microfighter set.
As the Slave I is Boba Fett’s ship, it would make sense for the set to include a Boba Fett minifigure.
LEGO may use the same minifigure design as in the 2021 set. However, The Book of Boba Fett TV series was released towards the end of 2021, after the Boba Fett Starship LEGO set hit shelves.
LEGO may choose to model the 2023 Boba Fett minifigure after the new TV series rather than stick with the figure’s 2021 design. This would mean an entirely new Boba Fett minifigure for fans to collect in the 2023 Microfighter set.
LEGO 75345 501st Battle Pack
Another smaller set LEGO is rumored to release on January 1st 2023 is the LEGO 75345 501st Battle Pack.
There is currently a different Star Wars 501st set available on the LEGO site – LEGO Star Wars 75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers.
However, this 501st set is reaching the end of its retail life, having been on shelves since August 1st 2020.
BrickFantatics reported in February 2022 that LEGO 75280 501st’s retirement date had been pushed forward from the end of 2023 to the end of 2022.
On the back of this report, there were rumors that LEGO was preparing to release a new Clone Trooper set in early 2023. Removing the currently available set just before the new release would likely create more hype for the new release.
Then in April 2022, LEGO added the 75345 set to a 2023 setlist hidden on their Building Instructions Portal database.
The addition came alongside other themed LEGO sets. For example, several Marvel sets and a couple of LEGO City sets.
The 75345 set was tagged as a Star Wars set. It is now believed to be the LEGO 75345 501st Battle Pack.
The new 501st set is thought to be both smaller and cheaper than the 2020 501st set. It is rumored to be 119 pieces and cost $19.99 compared to 285 pieces and $29.99.
According to PromoBricks, 4 501st Legion Clone Troopers minifigures will be included in the set. But these will differ from the figures in LEGO 75280 501st set.
The new figures will be a Commander Trooper (that will not be Rex), a Sniper Trooper, and two Heavy Troopers. PromoBricks also specifies that the clones included in the set will likely be a new design that features holes in the side of the helms to better attach gear.
Such small variations from the 2020 501st Legion Trooper LEGO set suggest that LEGO 75345 501st Battle Pack will be based on the Star Wars Battlefront video game, which was released in November 2017.
LEGO 75347 TIE Bomber
For the first time in 20 years, LEGO is rumored to release a new Star Wars TIE Bomber on January 1st 2023 with the LEGO 75347 TIE Bomber.
The last TIE Bomber LEGO to be released was the January 1st 2003 LEGO 4479 TIE Bomber. This was part of LEGO’s Star Wars Episode V range.
It is unclear how big the 2023 LEGO TIE Bomber will be. However, it is thought to cost $64.99 and include 3 minifigures.
LEGO’s TIE Bomber from 2003 retailed for $30, comprising of 1 minifigure and 230 pieces. So the new retail price alone should be enough of a clue that fans can expect a much larger and more detailed TIE Bomber in 2023.
As well as including a TIE fighter pilot, a Darth Vader and GONK droid minifigure will likely be included.
Likewise, LEGO will presumably update the TIE fighter pilot design from the minifigure included in the 2003 TIE Bomber set.
The design will still likely be based around Star Wars Episode V.
LEGO 75349 Captain Rex Helmet (Phase 2) and LEGO 75350 Commander Cody Helmet (Phase 1)
LEGO has shifted towards producing more adult-centric LEGO sets in recent years.
A whole section of the official LEGO website is dedicated to adult LEGO fans.
There is even a sub-section within the adult-friendly version of the site that features adult-targeted LEGO Star Wars sets. For example, LEGO 75308 R2-D2 and LEGO 75313 AT-AT.
Part of this adult range includes LEGO Star Wars helmets inspired by 6 Star Wars characters, each with their own iconic helmets.
On March 1st 2023, LEGO is rumored to add their first clone trooper helmets to the range.
These additions are thought to be LEGO 75349 Captain Rex Helmet (Phase 2) and LEGO 75350 Commander Cody Helmet (Phase 1), inspired specifically by the Clone Wars.
The two helmets will represent phase 1 and phase 2 of Star Wars the Clone Wars.
Both the 2023 helmets are thought to be released at the same time (March 1st 2023). They will cost roughly the same amount ($69.99). Though the exact piece count for the individual helmets is unsure.
LEGO has recently depicted Commander Cody and Captain Rex in a few of their clone trooper LEGO sets, each paired with their signature helmets.
Fans can look to these recent sets to get an idea of the type of design to expect from the new LEGO Star Wars Helmets.
LEGO Star Wars 75356 Exclusive Helmet
Rumors about LEGO Star Wars 75356 are not as specific as other rumored sets. But PromoBricks suspects that the set will be an additional LEGO Star Wars helmet set. Though the set will be more exclusive than the two listed above.
It is unclear whose helmet this set will depict. However, rumors suggest that the helmet may be that of Boushh the Bounty Hunter. Fans will know this character as who Leia used as a disguise in Star Wars Episode VI.
If that is true, the LEGO Star Wars 75356 Exclusive Helmet will undoubtedly be an iconic set.
Of course, there is also the possibility that LEGO will choose to stick with a Clone Trooper theme instead. This would create a neat, collectible 2023 LEGO Star Wars helmets range for fans to collect.
Based on the estimated prices of the other LEGO Star Wars helmets rumored for 2023, this helmet will cost $69.99.
The exclusivity of the helmet should not affect the overall price.
A LEGO exclusive set would only be available via the official LEGO website/ in stores or through a few retail partners.
At least, that was the case for the LEGO Star Wars 75323 Dark Trooper Helmet. The set received an exclusive release on March 1st 2022.
There is yet to be a rumored release date for this exclusive LEGO helmet past the expected 2023 date.
LEGO 75352 Death Star Throne Room Diorama
LEGO is predicted to release 2 LEGO Star Wars Dioramas sometime in 2023. These will grow the LEGO Star Wars Diorama range launched in March 2022.
The first new diorama set rumored for 2023 is the LEGO 75352 Death Star Throne Room Diorama.
Even though LEGO only recently created a set based on the Death Star’s throne room in 2020 (LEGO 75291 Death Star Final Duel), there is no doubt that this diorama depiction will still be a stunning display piece.
LEGO’s dioramas have proven to be quite sophisticated in terms of design. They have become the perfect collector’s item for any adult LEGO fan who loves Star Wars.
However, with an increase in quality comes an increase in price.
The LEGO 75352 Death Star Throne Room Diorama is rumored to cost $99.99 at retail. This will make it the most expensive LEGO Star Wars diorama to date.
It is possible that the price increase will also mean an increase in the number of parts. But this is pure speculation.
The good news is that regardless of piece count, the LEGO 75352 Diorama is thought to have 5 minifigures.
LEGO’s 2020 75291 Death Star Final Duel also included 5 minifigures. These were Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, and 2 red Royal Guards.
LEGO has no real reason to stray too far from these characters. They are the only character of note for the Death Star throne room scene.
But it would be odd and lazy for LEGO to reuse the same minifigures for the 2023 set. So the 5 minifigures may be redesigned to make them more exclusive to the new diorama.
LEGO 75353 Endor Speeder Bike Chase Diorama
The second LEGO Star Wars diorama rumored for 2023 is LEGO 75353 Endor Speeder Bike Chase Diorama.
LEGO recently another Endor-themed set from Star Wars Episode VI earlier in 2022. LEGO Star Wars 75332 AT-ST (released on August 1st 2022) was only an 87-piece set. However, it clearly depicted the forest moon of Endor.
Endor’s forest moon is not LEGO’s most common Star Wars set theme of choice. However, it would make a stunning theme for a diorama, which LEGO is rumored to also have realized.
This second 2023 diorama is thought to be cheaper than LEGO 75352 Death Star Throne Room Diorama. It will retail for $79.99.
Despite being $20 cheaper, LEGO 75353 Endor Speeder Bike Chase Diorama is said to include 4 minifigures.
Given the specific chase scene that the diorama will depict, it is likely that these minifigures will include Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia in their Endor outfits. A Scout Trooper will also likely be included.
The final minifigure could be a second Scout Trooper. Or it could be an Ewok to help the set tie in better with the theme of Endor’s forest moon.
It can be assumed that the lower retail price accounts for a smaller piece count than the Throne Room diorama.
Do not be put off by the possibility of the set’s fewer pieces, though.
LEGO released the 75329 Death Star Trench Run Diorama in April 2021. The set cost $69.99 and had 665 pieces with no minifigures but was met with great reviews.
This 2021 Trench Run diorama can give fans an insight into what kind of quality to expect from LEGO 75353 Endor Speeder Bike Chase Diorama.
LEGO Star Wars 75346 and 75348 Mandalorian Season 3
PromoBricks suggests that the as yet unnamed LEGO Star Wars 75346 and 75348 will be based around the new Mandalorian season.
Season 3 of Mandalorian is set to premiere on Disney + sometime in February 2023. This was confirmed at the Star Wars Celebration (Anaheim) in May 2022.
As of right now, there is not much to tell about these new unnamed sets.
Predictably, they will most likely be released on March 1st 2023 to prevent the sets from causing spoilers.
Reports say that the two potential Mandalorian sets will have vastly different price points upon release.
LEGO Star Wars 75346 is thought to be $34.99. Whereas LEGO Star Wars 75348 has a predicted price of $99.99. Such a price makes it the most expensive set rumored for 2023 so far.
Such a price difference will surely mean a big difference in the size of the unnamed sets, too.
Previous Mandalorian inspired sets have been peak LEGO design innovation and a collectable must have.
But until more information is known about these two sets, everything discussed is speculation.
LEGO Star Wars 75355 Ultimate Collector’s Series
In 2000, LEGO launched their hugely successful LEGO Ultimate Collector’s Series, commonly abbreviated as UCS.
Some controversial non-Star Wars sets have been marketed similarly to the UCS. For example, the 2006 LEGO 7784 The Batmobile Ultimate Collectors’ Edition – notice the use of Edition instead of Series.
However, for the most part, LEGO’s UCS has been exclusively for Star Wars fans.
The point of the UCS is simple. It is a series for LEGO to market their much more complex, adult-oriented Star Wars sets.
LEGO also ensures exclusivity to the UCS, only selling them in their stores or through a select group of retailers. This makes them a more desirable collectible for hard-core Star Wars or LEGO collectors.
LEGO has released at least 1, often 2, new Star Wars UCS since the series was launched in 2000. Rumors suggest the first of the UCS’s 2023 collection will be released in early 2023.
According to PromoBricks, LEGO Star Wars 753555 UCS will retail at $239.99. It will be released around May 1st 2023 ready for May the Fourth 2023.
Typically, a UCS set will retail for around $200 unless the set is substantially bigger than the rest of the series.
For example, the 2017 LEGO Star Wars 75144 UCS Snowspeeder cost $199.99 and comprised of 1703 pieces. Whereas the LEGO 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon was a humongous 7541 pieces, making it the biggest Star Wars LEGO set ever released. It retailed at $849.99 in 2017.
The 2023 UCS’s irregular price could be because of inflation or indicate a slightly bigger set than most of the other Ultimate Collectors Series sets.

LEGO Star Wars 40591 May The Fourth Promo
Along with their other May the Fourth releases, LEGO is predicted to continue their tradition of releasing a special promotional set (predicted to be LEGO Star Wars 40591) to celebrate Star Wars Day 2023!
Details about the promotional set are still unknown, other than it is likely to be another gift with an exclusive purchase set. So it is unclear yet how fans will actually be able to acquire the set.
Looking back at LEGO’s 2022 May the Fourth promotional set (LEGO Star Wars 40531 Lars Family Homestead Kitchen), the 2023 set will likely be released on May 1st 2023. This will allow fans to buy the set ready to build on May 4th.
As for what to expect within the set itself, it is hard to tell. Previous LEGO May the Fourth sets have varied too drastically in theme and content to predict what may be depicted in the 2023 set.
Though this sense of mystery is what keeps Star Wars fans looking to LEGO for that exclusive May the Fourth set every year.
Previous LEGO May the Fourth sets include the 2022 40531 Lars Family Homestead Kitchen that featured the unique minifigure of Aunt Beru Whitesun Lars, who is yet to appear in another set.
There is also the 2021 LEGO 40451 Tatooine Homestead that depicted Luke Skywalker’s home as a microscaled diorama.
LEGO Star Wars 40615 BrickHeadz
With so much Star Wars media planned for release in 2023, it makes sense that LEGO would release at least 1 new Star Wars BrickHeadz.
Rumors suggest that LEGO Star Wars 40615 is that BrickHeadz.
There is no price attached to this set yet or possible character, so it is difficult to guess if the BrickHeadz set is likely to be a double or single pack.
Likewise, the set’s release date is unknown, just that it is rumored to be released sometime in 2023.
LEGO Star Wars 75351 and 75354
Out of all the LEGO Star Wars sets rumored for 2023, LEGO Star Wars sets 75351 and 75354 have the least amount of information attached to their numbers.
LEGO 75351 is rumored to cost $69.99, but the price for LEGO 75354 is still unknown.
The most that can be speculated about these unnamed sets is where their associated set numbers fall between the other rumored 2023 sets.
LEGO 75351 falls between the LEGO 75350 Commander Cody Helmet and 75352 Death Star Throne Room Diorama. This opens up two possibilities.
It could mean that LEGO 75351 is another LEGO Star Wars helmet, especially as it has the same rumored retail price as the other two new 2023 helmets detailed above.
But that would mean 4 potential LEGO Star Wars helmet releases for 2023. Previously, LEGO has stuck to releasing their Star Wars helmets in groups of two or three, so it seems unlikely there would be a 4th helmet planned for 2023.
Alternatively, the set could be a third LEGO Star Wars Diorama.
The first 3 Star Wars Diorama sets that launched the LEGO Star Wars Diorama series were all released on the same day – April 26th 2022. 2 of these sets cost $89.99, while the third cost $69.99.
So, LEGO may choose to release a third diorama in 2023 that retails for a slightly lower and more affordable price than the other two rumored for 2023. That set could be LEGO Star Wars 75351.
It is a little harder to guess what LEGO Star Wars 75354 may be based on its assigned set number.
There is the possibility that the set is the third diorama instead of LEGO Star Wars 75351, as its number follows directly from the two dioramas above.
LEGO Star Wars 75354 may also be another set in the Ultimate Collectors Series or a completely different themed set altogether.
Until more information is confirmed, both sets remain a mystery.
LEGO Star Wars 2023 Annuals
Though fans will have to wait for official confirmation of the above sets, the LEGO Star Wars 2023 Annual is already available for pre-order.
It will be released in September 2022, ready for the new year.
Like every other LEGO annual, the 2023 Star Wars annual will feature a collectible-worthy Minifigure.
This year it is a Greef Karga figure.
Up until the annual’s announcement, this particular variety of Greef Karga Minifigure was only available in the August 1st 2021 set, the Lego 75311: Imperial Armoured Marauder.
The Greef Karga Minifigure pieces will be the only actual pieces of LEGO included in the 2023 Star Wars annual.
But the book will be full of LEGO-themed games, puzzles, and stories based on LEGO’s rendition of Star Wars.

LEGO Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Sets
So far, LEGO has only announced 1 set inspired by the 2019 Jedi: Fallen Order video game in all the years since the game was released.
The LEGO Star Wars 75335 BD-1 set is available for pre-order now and will be released on August 1st 2022.
The BD-1 set is not part of the LEGO 2023 Star Wars lineup. Though it hints at what could be included in the 2023 lineup.
LEGO Star Wars designer Michael Lee Stockwell said during an interview with Brickset that there were no Jedi: Fallen Order LEGO sets because “age ratings can affect the product we release.”
The game is fairly violent, rated T for teens in America. As such, the themes of Jedi: Fallen Order don’t fit LEGO’s family-friendly appeal.
However, Stockwell suggested that LEGO had not completely written off releasing Jedi: Fallen Order-inspired LEGO sets.
The higher age rating of the Jedi: Fallen Order video game may no longer cause a clash with LEGO’s own age rating or brand ideals.
Some fans think because there is a sequel video game to Jedi: Fallen Order that May be released in 2023, LEGO is gearing up to release a new wave of Jedi: Fallen Order sets that correspond with the sequel.
These sets would most likely appear during the summer 2023 LEGO releases to give fans a chance to play the game without any spoilers.
Considering the timing of the sequel game and the LEGO Groups growing recognition of its adult LEGO Star Wars fanbase, fans should expect to see at least 1 Jedi: Fallen Order LEGO set in 2023.
Star Wars European Celebration Event 2023 Announcements
All of the LEGO Star Wars 2023 releases discusses are entirely rumors (bar the 2023 annual). Any official announcements would probably come during the 2023 Star Wars European Celebration Event.
It was at the 2022 event that LEGO revealed a whole load of LEGO Star Wars goodies.
From the LEGO Star Wars 75338 Ambush on Ferrix set (to be released August 1st 2022) to a new LEGO Star Wars series on Disney +.
There is a high chance that Star Wars fans can expect a look at the new Jedi: Fallen Order sequel game during the event and find out officially about any new LEGO sets.
Unless LEGO makes an announcement sooner, of course.
