1000+ piece LEGO 75365 Yavin 4 Rebel Base officially revealed for Summer 2023

Finally! We are getting a Yavin 4 Rebel Base! Rumors were correct, and one of the big upcoming 2023 Summer Wave playsets will be the classic Rebel Base on Yavin 4 from A New Hope that launched the counter-defense against the Death Star.

LEGO unveiled the official product page and images on the 1st of June, though the set just says “coming soon” at the moment, and it doesn’t look like early pre-orders are happening yet (as of the time of writing this).

*Update – Orders are now available on LEGO.com and Amazon!

First impressions for this 8+ set are decent, though I will admit sections of the build remind me of a 4+ Junior’s set (looking at you tree). There’s a part of me that was hoping this might be a 10+ or higher set that had a little more detail to satisfy adults who wanted this set more for display, but it seems LEGO has opted for a more child-friendly playset with this design, as certain design elements of it do look like it’s geared towards a younger audience (the tree, the detailing on the walls, the foliage on the sides, etc).

However, I’m very excited about the generous 12 included minifigures, especially Luke and Han in their celebration outfits and medals.

Minifigures Include:

  • Luke Skywalker
  • Han Solo
  • Princess Leia
  • General Dodonna
  • Garven Dreis (Red Leader)
  • Jon Vander (Gold Leader)
  • Chewbacca
  • C-3PO
  • R2-D2
  • R2-BHD
  • Rebel Fleet Trooper
  • Rebel Crew

How great do those LEGO medals look? (Sorry Chewbacca…)

While it’s not quite the full 360° visual set some were expecting, it’s a simplified front-facing version and reminds me a lot of the 2018 Darth Vader Castle (Amazon).

Images on LEGO.com show the full Yavin 4 base from multiple angles, including the medal ceremony room, the war room (with the iconic Death Star approach hologram table), a briefing room, and a spacious hanger area below with a small service vehicle. The included midi-scale Y-Wing looks phenomenal! (And just big enough for a minifigure by the looks of it).

The watchtower above the tree is a great feature, and looks like it will have a mechanism that allows it to be raised and lowered.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments – is this too childish looking for adult collectors, or good enough to display alongside other more detailed sets? Too expensive for the low piece count?

Overall, I can’t wait for Yavin 4 to drop on Aug 1st and will definitely be picking one up, despite the slightly high price point.
