Exactly ten years have passed since Star Wars: The Clone Wars arrived in cinemas around the world on the 15th of August, 2008. The popular animated television series dominated the LEGO Star Wars range for several years, commencing with 7669 Anakin's Jedi Starfighter and later expanding to encompass more than 70 sets.

It therefore seems appropriate that 75214 Anakin's Jedi Starfighter should be released on the tenth anniversary of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, particularly given the announcement that the series will soon be returning! This set contains 247 pieces and includes far greater detail than its 153-piece predecessor, perfectly representing how LEGO product design has continued to develop during the last decade.
