The Star Wars Lego site From Bricks to Bothans posted, then removed, images of two new Lego sets. The Force Awakens won't be in theatres until Christmas, but the first wave of movie merchandise will be available in retail stores in September. These sets are two of the ones Lego will release. The removal was at the request of Lego's parent company, The Lego Group, though a reason was not provided. Presumably, it was because the images revealed some interesting hints about the plot of the movie itself.

The first set posted was Poe Dameron's X-Wing. Images of the updated X-wings have already been posted online and featured in both teaser trailers; the accompanying minifigures are the interesting part. The set comes with Poe Dameron, BB-8, and two unnamed figures - a female pilot and a member of the ground crew. Just as the Empire has been rebranded as the First Order, so too has the Rebel Alliance undergone a name change. The heroes of The Force Awakens fight the First Order as members of the Resistance. BB-8 is pictured as a co-pilot in the set, confirming the adorable droid has that ability as well.

The second set shown was the Millennium Falcon. There isn't much different about the Millennium Falcon itself, though it's nice to see the radar dish has been replaced. Accompanying the set are seven minifgures: Han Solo, Chewbacca, Finn, Rey, BB-8, Tasu Leech, and an unnamed "Kanjiklub Gang Member". The inclusion of Leech and a gang member, and the sandy background shown on the box, indicate that Solo and company find themselves in some hot water on Jakku before or as part of their battle with the First Order.

Both sets, along with a slew of other Star Wars products, hit shelves September 4.
