MEGATech Showcase: LEGO Star Wars Beth Snyder October 9, 2014 Features There is a seemingly neverending variety of LEGO playsets out there, but none of them capture my heart quite like the ones for various scenes, vehicles, and figures from Star Wars. These are all officially licensed products, and I’m pretty sure you need to add them to your collection sooner rather than later. First up is a ridiculously huge Jawa Sandcrawler. This one consists of a whopping 3,296 pieces, including a speeder bike, two working cranes, detailed interior, 5 droids, 7 minifigures… the list just about goes on forever. Minifigs included are: Luke Skywalker™, Uncle Owen, C-3PO™ and 4 Jawas™, plus R2-D2™, R2 unit, an R1-series Droid™, Gonk Droid™, R5-D4™ and a Treadwell Droid™. All this fabulousness does not come cheaply, however… You’ll have to shell out about $300.00 US to take this one home. Source: Geekologie Who wouldn’t want their very own Millennium Falcon? This is part of the Microfighters line, and comes with a quad laser cannon with two flick missiles. And of course it wouldn’t be complete without a Han Solo minifig carrying a blaster. Being a mini-size, this one has just 94 pieces, and costs around $10.00 US. Source: Geek Alerts I’m not sure what it is about AT-ATs, but I love them long time. I’ve actually got this set on my Christmas list, although at about $100.00 US I suspect I won’t be finding it under my tree. It’s got 1,137 pieces, including weapons, AT-AT Driver, General Veers, Snow trooper Commander and 2 Snow troopers. Its head moves, and its legs are poseable. When completed, it measures 12″ (33cm) high, 12″ (32cm) long, and 4″ (11cm) wide. Source: 7 Gadgets You can’t play Star Wars without Jabba’s Sail Barge, am I right? It has 850 pieces including Jabba the Hutt, R2-D2 and Princess Leia in slave outfit, Max Rebo, Weequay and Ree-Yees (the last five also have weapons). It’s also got a hidden pirate cannon, deck cannon with 2 flick missiles, and a bunch of other details. When built, it measures 8″ (22cm) high, 16″ (43cm) long and 8″ (22cm) wide. All this can be yours for about $120.00 US. Source: SlashGear It occurs to me that the LEGO company wants to see me bankrupt. This $200.00 set is coming in January, and if you don’t already know it’s an incredibly detailed, 1,996-piece LEGO version of Boba Fett’s Slave 1. It comes with minifigs of Boba Fett™, Bespin Guard™, Stormtrooper™ and Han Solo™ (plus Han Solo™ in carbonite), a bunch of weapons both on the ship and able to be carried by the minifigs, and when in landing mode measures 7” (20cm) high, 17” (45cm) long, and 14” (37cm) wide. The Boba Fett™ and Bespin Guard™ minfigs are exclusive to this set. Source: Nerd Approved While you’re at it, you might as well add General Grevious’ Wheel Bike to your LEGO collection. When complete, it measures 5″ (14cm) high, 6″ (16cm) long and 4″ (11cm) wide, and it contains 261 pieces. It comes with minifigs of Obi-Wan Kenobi and General Grevious, as well as fold-out clawed legs, double laser cannons, flick missile and a control seat. The wheel actually turns, also. At just $20.00 US, this is one of the more affordable items in this Showcase. Source: 7 Gadgets Let’s close this one out with one of my favourite scenes… there used to be a bar in a tiny town in Northern California that I swear was the model for the Cantina. This LEGO version comes with Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Greedo, a Sand trooper, 3 Bith Musicians minifigs, several weapons, and (of course) band instruments for the musicians for a total of 616 pieces. When closed, it measures 4? high, 6? wide and 7? deep, and when open it’s 4? high, 12? wide, and 4? deep. You can pick one up for about $70.00 US. Source: Geek Alerts Share This With The World!
