The new Star Wars: Ahsoka series is a major development within the Star Wars franchise, and we absolutely loved bringing these exciting vessels to life in LEGO brick form. We can’t wait for fans to begin on their latest adventure by building these fantastic sets, immersing themselves in the latest epic story from the galaxy far, far away.
