The force is strong here. Celebrate Star Wars with these brand new LEGO Star Wars sets that are sure to delight any fan.
LEGO released the first-ever Star Wars set in 1999. Since then, LEGO and Star Wars have enjoyed a strong relationship that has reached many mediums from TV shows, video games, movies, and apparel. For years, LEGO and Star Wars have been churning out sets that are a must-own for any LEGO and/or Star Wars fan. Now, to celebrate Star Wars Day (May 4/May the Fourth), LEGO is releasing brand new Star Wars sets that will satisfy any Star Wars fan.
Helmets and Droids Set
Released just last April 26, LEGO and Star Wars introduced three new construction sets for adult builders inspired by the Dark Side. There are two new additions to the LEGO Star Wars Helmet set as well as a separate new set. The three sets are:
Darth Vader Helmet
This bust is a replica of Darth Vader’s helmet. This 834 LEGO piece model is strikingly similar to that of the iconic Star Wars villain’s real helmet. The set is 8 (20 cm) inches high, 5.5 (15 cm) inches wide and 5.5 (14 cm) inches deep. Once complete, the helmet will be an eye-catching display piece.
Scout Trooper Helmet
If you were a fan of the speeder bike chase in Episode VI, this helmet set may be for you. The set measures 7 inches (18 cm) high, 4.5 inches (11 cm) wide, and 4.5 inches (12 cm) deep. The helmet set has over 471 LEGO pieces. It also has details and quirks to make it as accurate to the real helmet as possible.
Imperial Probe Droid Set
Fans of Episode V just got one step closer to recreating scenes from Hoth with this 683-piece Imperial Probe Droid set. This set measures 10.5 inches (27 cm) high, 9 inches (24 cm) wide, and 4 inches (11 cm) deep. There is also a buildable snow scene that comes with the set. Finally, it also comes with a transparent pole so that it looks like the set is suspended over the snow.
Each set also comes with a plaque and a stand to make them great room decorations or displayable figures. The Darth Vader Helmet set and the Imperial Probe Droid set are both priced at P4999.75 while the Scout Trooper Helmer set is priced at P3499.75. You can get all three items at any LEGO Certified Store, bankeebricks.ph, Lazada, Shopee, Dotcom, and Zalora.
R2-D2 Construction Set
If the Dark Side of the Force has its own new sets, so too does the Light Side of the Force. To celebrate Lucasfilm’s 50th anniversary, LEGO and Star Wars also unveiled a brand new R2-D2 set. The set has a whopping 2315 pieces, which makes this the most feature-packed LEGO R2-D2 set ever created. The set stands at an impressive 12.5 inches (31 cm) high, 7.5 inches (20 cm) wide, and 6 in. (15 cm) deep.
The abundance of pieces means that the set will be a movie-accurate recreation of R2-D2. It also comes with many features and details such as a retractable mid-leg, rotating head, periscope, and a lightsaber hilt hidden in a secret compartment in the head. The set also comes with an exclusive mini-figure version of R2-D2 and a Lucasfilm 50th anniversary LEGO brick.
The R2-D2 set is priced at P11,999.75 and is available exclusively from bankeebricks. ph and LEGO Certified Stores. You can also order through Lazada, Shopee, Dotcom, and Zalora.
