LEGO Launches Into Outer Space With Disney and Pixar On Upcoming 'Lightyear' Sets

LEGO is gearing up for the upcoming release of Disney and Pixar‘s Lightyear film. Chris Evans takes on the role of Buzz Lightyear to make his way through space battling Zurg and Zyclops.

The new range of LEGO includes a buildable Lightyear XL-15 Spaceship, the spaceman’s vehicle of choice. The spaceship features authentic details from Buzz’s origin story and includes a working openable cockpit that fits a mini Lightyear figure, as well as a removable fuel cell. The set also comes with four characters from the film, Buzz Lightyear, Darby Steel, Mo Morrison and Sox and three weapons including Darby’s Mr. Boom rocket launcher. The spaceship sits on a plaque for better display.

The second set allows fans to recreate the Zurg battle season. Fans are able to reimagine Buzz’s battle with the evil Emperor Zurg as they maneuver the robot’s arms and legs while using Izzy’s stud shooter and Buzz’s wrist laser. A third set is revealed depicting Buzz and Izzy Hawthorne in a Zyclops chase in their full space suits.

The film features a star-studded cast including, Keke Palmer, Dale Soules, Taika Waititi, Peter Sohn, Uzo Aduba, James Brolin, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Efren Ramirez and Isiah Whitlock Jr. Lightyear hits theaters on June 17, but prior to the release fans can purchase the lego sets for the Lightyear XL-15 Spaceship, Lightyear Zurg Battle and Zyclops Chase on April 24 at 12 a.m. ET.
