While this news might make some of you feel particularly old (it’s okay, my knees and back randomly ache too), LEGO is celebrating this collab with a new range of Star Wars sets. There are five all up, the majority of which are iconic ships like the Millennium Falcon, along with an R2-D2 and a diorama depicting Darth Vader’s entrance in A New Hope.
For the most part, they look pretty good! The Invisible Hand and Tantive IV sets are pretty basic, but I like how they’ve scaled down the Millennium Falcon while maintaining a lot of surface detail. The R2-D2 set is also a pretty great replica of everyone’s favourite droid, complete with a head that can rotate 360-degrees, a retractable periscope and tool arms.
The ‘Boarding the Tantive IV’ set also comes with a bonus ARC Trooper Fives minifigure, while the R2-D2 set includes one for Darth Malak, the big bad from Knights of the Old Republic. Why? That’s a great question that I have no clear answer to.
According to LEGO, it’s planning a whole year of anniversary celebrations, so hopefully, these aren’t the only sets we’ll see. Personally, I’m holding out for something to do with the Max Rebo Band. I love that blue guy!
