There are literally dozens of Lego Star Wars sets to choose from which are mostly quite simple to build and when you’ve finished you have a great toy to play with from Starfighters to battle scenarios and army packs to turbo tanks. Combine Lego Star Wars sets and invite your friends round to fight for the Galaxy.
Imperial V-wing Starfighter 7915: At the end of the Clone Wars, when the Galactic Republic fell, the V-wing Starfighter was one of the first of the new Empire. Once built, this model has a cockpit which opens and closes and into which the Imperial pilot fits, even with his blaster in his hand, and wings which rotate ninety degrees. You also get an Astromech Droid R2-Q2 figure. Now you can go hunting the Rebel Alliance.
Rebel Trooper Battle Pack: In this set you get an ice-cutting Rebel combat speeder vehicle complete with flick-firing missiles. The characters included are Rebel pilot Zev Sensca and three Rebel Troopers wearing cold weather clothing and Hoth helmets and they’ll help you defend the hidden Rebel base on ice planet Hoth against the attack of the Empire.
Millennium Falcon: Millennium Falcon is probably the biggest of the Lego Star Wars sets and will keep your 9 to 14 year old (or possible his father) happy for hours just building it. It has in excess of 1200 pieces and is a replica of Han Solo’s starship. Detailed building instructions are included which makes construction relatively easy but considerable discipline is needed when laying out the pieces as they are predominantly grey.
The top panels open so that you can see into the ship, the cockpit cover is detachable so that Han Solo and Chewbacca can pilot the ship and the hull opens. The weaponry is impressive with twin flick missiles and rotating laser cannons on the ship plus a crossbow, three blasters and three lightsabers for use by the six mini figures of Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo and Chewbacca which are all in the set.
There are no mini-figures of C-3PO or R2D2 included, but they are available separately along with lots of other mini figures so you can build up the full set of major characters.
With these Lego Star Wars sets the sky’s the limit in terms of re-enacting scenes from the movies and creating your own scenarios is limited only by your own imagination.
