To mark May the 4th (be with you), we’ve pulled together another selection of excellent LEGO Star Wars sets. Once again, with these beauties, you can recreate the magic of that galaxy far, far away without having to leave your living room. Great stuff! Let’s get cracking…
This absolute beauty is the newest addition to the wonderful pantheon of Star Wars LEGO. Using 1703 pieces you can recreate the iconic Rebel Alliance Snowspeeder from The Empire Strikes Back‘s unforgettable Hoth sequence. It’s a lovely, detailed kit boasting numerous hatches that open, and it comes with two Minifigures: one to pilot the ship, and one to handle the guns. It also comes with a display stand.
You can buy the Snowspeeder from LEGO Shop for £169.99. Back orders are currently being accepted, and will ship within 30 days. Click here to head to the product page.
Captain Rex’s AT-TE
Here’s a real gem, and an utter must-have for fans of the animated series Star Wars Rebels. Captain Rex and his clone troopers managed to avoid turning evil when Order 66 went down, and the Rebels gang eventually found them hiding out in a highly modified AT-SE walker. Isn’t it gorgeous? It consists of 972 pieces, and comes with five Minifigures (one Imperial Inquisitor and four troopers).
Rex’s AT-TE is currently going for the discounted price of £98.99 on LEGO Shop. Click here to head to the product page.
Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle
1,005 pieces make up this loving recreation of Kylo Ren’s shuttle from The Force Awakens. It has a front that opens and a storage hatch at the back, as well as spring-loaded shooters and extending wings. It also comes with a whopping six Minifigures: three First Order troopers, one officer, Kylo Ren and General Hux. Who doesn’t want LEGO Adam Driver and LEGO Domhnall Gleeson in their life?!
Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle is currently discounted to £98.99 on the LEGO Shop. Click here to head to the product page.
Battle on Scarif
This Rogue One tie-in is an awesome little set, which consists of 419 pieces and four Minifigures (two Scarif Stormtroopers, Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor). It lets you build a mini Imperial base, and smash it up again (if you’re that way inclined). It’s more detailed than it looks on first glace, with ‘exploding’ floor panels, sliding bunker doors and concealed Death Star plans.
You can buy the Battle on Scarif from LEGO Shop for the discounted price of £49.99. Click here to head to the product page.
This A-Wing kit is relatively tiny, weighing in at 358 pieces. If you don’t fancy too big of a challenge (or a shelf-space hog), this could be the kit for you. As well as the ship, which has spring-loaded shooters, rotating canons, an opening cockpit and a retractable landing gear, you also get Minifigures of two nameless Rebels and one Lando Calrissian. LEGO Billy Dee Williams is surely on your wishlist.
The A-Wing Starfighter is currenly going for the cheaper-than-usual price of £40.49 on LEGO Shop. Click here to head to the product page.
Speaking of smaller sets which won’t take up too much of your space/time/money, Luke’s Landspeeder is a beautiful little kit. It consists of just 149 pieces, but manages to perfectly capture the essence of Luke Skywalker’s iconic Tatooine mode of transport. You get Minifigures of Luke Skywalker, Old Ben Kenobi, C-3PO and a Tusken Raider, as well as a tiny womp rat figure. What fun!
At the time of writing, Luke’s Landspeeder could be yours – via LEGO Shop – for just £17.99. Click here to head to the product page.
Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle
Ben Mendelsohn’s Orson Krennic was the slimy careerist at the heart of Rogue One, and you can now build his shuttle from 863 pieces. As well as LEGO Mendelsohn, you also get Minifigures of Bodhi Rook, two Death Troopers, K-2SO, Pao and Baze Malbus. The ship has a cocpit and a hold that open, retractable landing skids and spring-loaded shooters.
Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle is currently going for the reduced price of £76.49, from LEGO Shop. Click here to head to the product page. Be careful not to choke on your ambition, or any of the bricks.
Boba Fett’s Slave I
Boba Fett’s iconic ship has one of the coolest designs in the Star Wars universe, and this LEGO kit lets you make your own one at home. It’s no small undertaking at 1,996 pieces, and it comes with Han Solo in carbonite as well as four Minifigures (Boba, Han, a Stormtrooper and a Bespin guard). How awesome would this one look on your shelf?
The Slave I could be yours for £161.99, through the LEGO Shop. Click here to go to the product page.
Here’s another treat for fans of Star Wars Rebels. This small, 269-piece kit allows you to recreate The Ghost crew’s away team ship, The Phantom. It comes with Minifigures of the villainous Admiral Thrawn, the clutzy droid Chopper and the blind Jedi Kanan. It has spring-loaded shooters, a cockpit that opens and a retractable landing gear.
The Phantom is currently priced at £35.99 on the LEGO Shop. Click here to go to the product page. Sadly, the LEGO version of The Ghost is no longer available.
Homing Spider Droid
Fancy revisiting Attack Of The Clones? Oh, you don’t? Ah well. This LEGO version of the Homing Spider Droid, from the worst prequel’s final battle, is still pretty cool. It weighs in at 310 pieces, and comes with two Clone Troopers, two Battle Droids and one Master Yoda (complete with lightsaber).
The Homing Spider Droid is currently priced at £31.49, on the LEGO Shop. Click here to go to the product page.
Resistance X-Wing Fighter
There has been no shortage of LEGO X-Wings over the years, with the latest one being a tie-in with The Force Awakens. It comes with Minifigures of Poe Dameron, Lor San Tekka, BB-8 and a First Order Flametrooper. It’s made up of 740 pieces, and has four spring-loaded shooters. The wings open and close, too.
The Resistance X-Wing Fighter is currently priced at £76.49. Click here to go to the product page.
As with X-Wings, there have been plenty of TIE-based kits across the vast history of Star Wars. But this Tie Striker set, a tie-in with Rogue One, is particularly cool. It’s not too tough of a build (at 543 pieces) and it comes with an Imperial pilot, a biege Stormrooper and a Rebel. Plus, the ship’s design is brilliant, with its wings moving up and down on hinges. Very nice.
The TIE Striker is currenly available for £58.49 on the LEGO Shop. Click here to go to the product page.
Another cool design that Rogue One added to the canon is the Rebel U-Wing Fighter, which the Rebels use as a troop transport. It’s brighter in colour than a lot of the previous ships, and it’s not too tough to build at 659 pieces. It comes with spring-loaded shooters, doors that open, and no less five Minifigures: Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, a Rebel soldier, a pilot and Bistan (who you’ll remember hanging out of a U-Wing and yelling in the trailers).
The U-Wing is currently available at the discounted price of £67.49. Click here to go to the product page.
