Star Wars. Legos. Kids.
No matter who you are, you gotta love at least 2 out of the 3.
My top 5 are: my child, Star Wars, Legos, Mt. Dew and Pizza.
Oh yeah! My wife too! But I digress….
Here is my list of the top 5 most challenging Star Wars Lego playsets
This our first introduction to a much larger world. This Lego edition of the first spaceship we ever saw in a Star Wars film contains over 1400 pieces, rotating radar disc, detachable escape pods and 5 figures. A challenge not to be taken lightly.
(You can see an expertly done splicing of this ship towards the end of Star Wars: Rogue One and this ship’s beginning classic scene in Star Wars: A New Hope HERE. (Warning: Spoilers)
The Millennium Falcon is probably the most famous ship in Sci-Fi lore, maybe second to the U.S.S. Enterprise (which has never made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, by the way). Over 1300 pieces to assemble with hideable cargo compartments, turbo lasers and 7 Star Wars: Force Awakens figures. Even Harrison Ford couldn’t crash this…umm..well actually…
The Lego Death Star II (now discontinued) stood over 25″ tall, had a Star Destroyer in orbit and contained over 3,400 pieces! But unfortunately no moon of Endor.
Holy Crap! What didn’t this set come with! Over 4,000 pieces, Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter, 23 figures with nearly 20 weapons and a room from basically every Death Star scene from the movie! Only thing missing was the Death Star’s kitchen sink!
There are actually a number of different Imperial Walker Lego sets, but only 1 motorized walking set! This 1,137 piece beast comes with a motor allowing it to walk and move it’s head up and down. Comes with opening cockpit, rotating lasers, 4 figures (including Luke’s grappling cord) but not the 6 AA batteries needed to operate the motors.
The Super Star Destroyer gets an honorable mention, but I am not including it on my list simply because it is not manufactured by Lego. Wesselink Toys makes Lego compatible products, but still pretty cool!
Please comment with the Lego sets you think I might have missed.
