To celebrate May the 4th this year, LEGO will be releasing an exclusive minifigure featuring a rather obscure character from the Star Wars saga: Admiral Yularen.
Wullf Yularen was a prominent character in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series; he was the naval commander of Anakin Skywalker’s fleet, and the man who provided the series’ fun intro narration. He also appeared in the original Star Wars trilogy, as one of the men sitting around a conference table in the Death Star in A New Hope.
Oddly enough, the new minifigure resembles the original iteration of Yularen, and not the Clone Wars version. Perhaps his mustache and trademark frown was just too good not to adapt in LEGO form.
LEGO has yet to officially reveal the Yularen figure, so we’re not sure yet when and how he’ll be available for purchase. As always, we’ll keep you posted.
