LEGO Star Wars 75398 Buildable C-3PO Rumoured For August 2024

Buildable characters are a very common type of set in LEGO and so it's no surprise to see the 25-year-old LEGO Star Wars theme also explore brick-built animals, people, droids and much more. We've already seen three buildable R2-D2's release, including this year's 75379 R2-D2, and Chewbacca with 2023s 75371 Chewbacca. But in 2024 LEGO will be making another one of our favourite droids in brick-built form: C-3PO.

C-3PO has been a common character in the Star Wars franchise and that has carried over into LEGO form too so it's a surprise that its taken LEGO so long to create a brick-built version of the droid. But in just a few weeks time we'll finally be getting brick-built C-3PO on the 1st of August 2024 under the set number 75398. The 18+ model will retail for $139.99 with a total of 1,138 pieces included.

Compared to the two buildable characters mentioned earlier, 75398 Buildable C-3PO will be in scale with May's R2-D2 which can also be reflected in a much smaller piece count compared to the 18+ Chewy that released in September last year. A fair amount of larger moulds and pieces and of course some exclusive prints are expected to be included in the LEGO version of C-3PO. We also expect it to include a mix of shiny elements and dark tan.

Being an 18+ model, a small display stand along with an information plaque for the droid will also be included. This black display stand will also have room to display the single Minifigure included in 75398 of C-3PO himself. According to rumours, this is expected to be a reuse but we would love it to be an exclusive version of the droid, possibly a very small reference to one of the main Star Wars films he makes an appearance in.
