LEGO Star Wars 75148 Encounter on Jakku First Look

The upcoming LEGO Star Wars 75148 Encounter on Jakku set has been revealed from one of the pages in the DK LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens book. The page insert shows BB-8 Droid, Rey and Unkar Plutt minifigures. Thanks to Jonathan for writing in with the news. (via bouwsteentjes)

Looks a little plain but I like the height. Unkar is hideous as a minifig :lol: :lol: :lol: Investors will be frustrated by BB8 in a cheaper set, but I'm guessing this will be $35 or more?

Hm.... I realize that it's based on a scavenger outpost, but Unkar's building was much more complete than that in the movie. It looks like a set in the middle of construction.

Hmmmm.... A cheaper way to get BB8 but so far I'm very underwhelmed. I'll have to see the whole set when its finalized. I agree with you that Unkar looks horrible. If DC character Darkseid should be a bigfig (really he's somewhere in between the size of Superman and Hulk.. definitely smaller than Hulk somewhat) than maybe they should have considered making Unkar larger than a regular minifig? Maybe? I don't know. Its been awhile since I've seen the SW film and maybe I just really really don't like the way Unkar looks.

Unkar should be the same size as Hagrid from Harry Potter.
