LEGO 75265 Star Wars T-16 Skyhopper Vs. Bantha Microfighter

With so many different Star Wars Lego sets, there needs to be something unique for each one. For me, in this set, its the Batha, and the Tusken Raider. When I was just a 7 year old boy I saw Star Wars when it first came out in the theater, and in one of the first scenes of the movie, young Luke was attacked by them and it scared me a lot. Ever since then, I’ve had a healthy respect for these sand creatures.

LEGO 75265 Release Date

The T-16 Skyhopper Vs. Bantha Microfighter LEGO set is scheduled to be released early in January 2020. Based on previous releases however this set might be released on Dec 26, the day after Christmas. I base this of off previous releases in earlier years, as well as the fact that some of get a little extra money for the holidays, and LEGO wants us to spend it on them – which I always do. This is not a VIP only release as far as know.  I expect this series of sets to be available at both the official LEGO store, as well as 3rd party retailers like Amazon, Target, and Walmart.

If you want to see when I open the set and build it in real time,  follow me on Instagram where I frequently do live feeds and Lego Instagram Stories of new sets. This year my goal is to buy and review every single LEGO set made in 2020.
