LEGO Star Wars 501st Battle Pack Statement

The LEGO® Star Wars Design Team has issued a statement regarding the box art of the LEGO Star Wars 501st Battle Pack. There is an error on the box imagery in regards to the 501st officer minifigure and the positioning of the blue range finder antenna. The box art features this connected at a lower point than the physical element can be attached, therefore the rendered image doesn’t reflect the physical product. This doesn’t affect the actual elements within the box or the build experience. Full statement below and cue outrage from a certain section of LEGO fans in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…

Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, Creative Lead for LEGO Star Wars said:

“Creating new sets involves a number of different teams working together in parallel, and unfortunately in this case the printed box art for 75345 features a computer render of a Phase 2 Clone Trooper helmet that doesn’t reflect the final finished physical element and positioning of the range finder on the figure.

In the final design of the physical helmet element, the visor dictates where holes for extra attachments need to be placed for them to sit. This is slightly higher than the position where the range finder is on the render found on the 75345 box.”
