This epic series has combined with LEGO over the last year to comprise an entire line-up of awesome sets for collectors and kiddos. While the going rate for these new LEGO Star Wars sets is usually 9 years of age, there’s really no reason why adult collectors and SW enthusiasts should miss out.
Each set is buildable, stackable, and flourishing with hundreds of put-together pieces in realistic Star Wars colors. They’ll also appear to be mini-replicas when the stacking, building, and admiring is done.
And a trio of the best are:
LEGO Star Wars Jabba’s Sail Barge
This scene from the films is one of legendary awesome! In all his gluttonous glory, Jabba the Hutt has just captured the beautiful Princess Leia and mechanized R2-D2. They’re imprisoned on the massive monster’s barge, floating through intergalactic deserts at warp-speed.
Builders can recreate the scene, complete with mini-figurines of key characters, with over 800 pieces. Ranging in tedious to enormous, each block is a stepping stone to completing the barge, and finally using imagination to bring the whole scenario to life.
LEGO Star Wars Homing Spider Droid
In my humble opinion, spiders are creepy – even mechanical ones. But this one was pretty cool in the movie – I must admit. Kiddies and collectors can piece together a recreated version of the Spider Droid that wreaked havoc in the Battle of Heonosis in Attack of the Clones.
The joints of the creature’s legs are fully functional, and his head rotates at a full 360-degrees to star down enemies at all angles. Also equipped are, of course, the 4 mini-figurine fighters to reenact the bloodshed of Episode II’s battlefield.
LEGO Star Wars Duel on Geonosis
In this rendition of a scene favorite, Yoda is attempting to thwart Count Dooku’s evil plans for the Death Star.
Equipped with a glowing laser-saber and the lair of Episode II, these characters can battle to the end. However, first and foremost, their scene must be built from 390 pieces of varying sizes and colors.
When complete, collectors and kids will have the epic battlefield where a duel to outlast ages took place.
