LEGO Catalog Reveals Star Wars: Rogue One Vehicle Codenames.

Lego_Star_Wars_logo

A German LEGO site has just come across a new catalogue of toys displaying a few codenames for some Rogue One: A Star Wars Story toys. One product name actually ties the recently-revealed “Raven Deluxe” codename to a specific ship.

 

 

Weeks ago, we came across an image of LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One toys that we were briefly able to share with you. As we were asked to remove the image of the LEGO sets by request, we will not repost them here. However, we will tell you the product numbers that the toys had, and what vehicles were associated with them:

 

  • 75152: Imperial Tank.
  • 75153: AT-ST.
  • 75154: TIE Striker.
  • 75155: U-Wing.
  • 75156: Imperial Shuttle.

 

Well, today, we’ve learned from a new catalogue found by the good folks at Promo Bricks that the product numbered 75154, 75155, and 75156 now have codenames assigned to them: Raven Deluxe, Unicorn, and Black Bird, respectively.

The presence of the “Raven Deluxe” ship is actually not a new discovery; YakFace reported that one of Hot Wheels toys tying into the movie was given such a label. While some suspected that this would mean a key ship would be called the Raven Deluxe (akin to the naming convention of the Millennium Falcon), others suspected it was a codename. As the above image establishes, it’s a codename after all – and it’s specifically one for the TIE Striker. (The Raven Deluxe would make for a pretty cool ship name, though.)

 

The TIE Striker, a ship we have yet to see in movie footage or image stills themselves, previously appeared prominently in the Visual Story Guide images that leaked a while ago, alongside the U-Wing and the Imperial Tank (which I should note is a label that I made up for the sake of this article and is not the vehicle’s actual name). Since we were not asked to take these images down previously, we’ll bring them back here for frame of reference:

    Sounds unique enough to me.

    So, who can’t wait to see that unicorn in Rogue One?

    Makes you wonder why the TIE Striker wasn’t the new fighter in the ST?

      I suspect because part of the “make it like the OT” brief that Abrams seemingly had meant that the Ties and X-Wings had to look pretty similar to what came before and the Tie shape is pretty iconic.

        That actually makes the TIE Striker design seem even more out of place here, IMHO, since Rogue One takes place at the very beginning of the OT timeframe. Where were these slick little numbers when the Rebels were hitting the Death Star only days or weeks later?

          Maybe Jyn Erso and company blow up the TIE striker factory in ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. Or maybe the Ghost crew will do it on STAR WARS REBELS right before dying on Alderaan.

          We only see the Empire in 3 major battles. You wouldn’t see every ship in a navy in 3 battles.

          There are a number of explanations when it comes to not seeing certain units seen in the movies. For example, we never see Scout Troopers in A New Hope, or The Empire Strikes Back but they were still out there being used on other planets. There very well could have been scout troopers on the Death Star when it was blown up in A New Hope, and we just never saw them on screen. Same with the TIE Bombers.

          Same with these TIE Strikers, and Death Troopers. Maybe the factory where the TIE Strikers are being produced gets destroyed and the Empire decides not to continue production on them. I also heard that the TIE strikers are supposed to be atmospheric fighters only, much like the airspeeders for the Rebels.

          Might be failed prototypes like how they explained the Phantom Fighters in Rebel Assault II which looked very similar.

            I’d go with this – perhaps the Raven Deluxe is the lead prototype, so during the events of Rogue One the rebels get hold of it and the programme is mothballed as a result?

          When these images were first released there was accompanying text which, if I remember correctly, stated the TIE Striker is an Airspeeder variant of the TIE Fighter. It’s atmospheric only.

    I don’t care how reducklous it is, I want to see a fighter from every letter of the alphabet. Can’t wait till they get tot the Q-Wing.
