LEGO sets have been around for years, bringing fans of all ages tons of entertainment. But the LEGO sets of today’s time… these things are more incredible than ever! The detailing that goes into them, the figurines that are included and the movements found within each set help make these kits go-to gifts.
Some of the coolest LEGO sets are based on popular films, like the 10 Star Wars-themed ones below. They allow children to recreate and reenact famous scenes starring characters like Kylo Ren and Luke Skywalker, and even older fans enjoy building and then displaying these elaborate starships, droids, walkers and rooms.
10 LEGO Star Wars VIII BB-8 75187 Building Kit
Over 1,100 pieces come together to create the lovable BB-8! The details on this LEGO set are quite impressive, as this little guy has a wheel-activated rotating head and a hatch that opens up to reveal a non-functioning welding torch. This building kit also includes a display stand, a decorative fact plaque and a small BB-8 figure, so that when construction is complete, it can be set up and shown off in a very official way.
So a young Star Wars fan can make this droid play along with other toys, moving BB-8’s head around and using the torch to interact, while an older fan can put this character on display after putting it together!
9 LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon 75105
The Millennium Falcon is an icon of this story, and it, too, can be built with LEGO pieces. Though it is a bit smaller than the actual starship, it is full of exciting details. There are dual spring-loaded shooters and rotating top and bottom laser turrets.
The hull plates can be opened to show off the main hold’s seating area and holochess board, as well as a secret compartment, extra boxes/cables and storage space. And the detachable cockpit has space for two minifigures like Han Solo, Chewbacca, Rey, Finn, Tasu Leech, BB-8 and/or a Kanjiklub gang member - which are all included!
8 LEGO Star Wars Carbon-Freezing Chamber 75137 Star Wars Toy
Another legend from these films is the Carbon-Freezing Chamber on Cloud City. With this set, 231 pieces can be stacked and connected in order to recreate this classic scene. There is a control center, a freeze bed with freeze function, a staircase and an elevator, and three minifigures are also included: Han Solo, Boba Fett and an Ugnaught.
And the details on each and every piece and figurine are so elaborate; it is like watching the movie all over again (just a miniature version). Fans of all ages can enjoy building with this kit and helping to save Han Solo.
7 LEGO Star Wars Death Star Final Duel 75093 Building Kit
Perhaps the most well-known scene out of this entire film series is the final battle between Luke and his father. Well, that epicness can be reenacted with this next LEGO set. It features Emperor Palpatine's throne room and amazing details such as swing-out side sections, opening entrance doors, collapsing stairs and bridge, a reactor shaft and a detachable section that rotates and reveals a hidden Lightsaber pop-up function.
The possibilities for play are endless after this thing is built, since LEGO versions of five different characters are included with it - Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine and two Royal Guards.
6 LEGO Star Wars: Revenge of The Sith AT-AP Walker 75234 Building Kit
An All-Terrain Attack Pod, which is better known as an AT-AP, is an artillery walker seen in Star Wars. This LEGO building kit allows fans to build a detailed cockpit, those long legs and even an aiming turret with a spring-loaded shooter! There is also a retractable third leg and an opening on the top and at the sides that reveals the cockpit.
Two minifigures can fit here, and another has a spot on the top turret, which is where most of the exciting action will take place! So decide who will sit where, as Chewbacca, Clone Commander Gree, a Kashyyyk Clone Trooper and two Kashyyyk Battle Droids are included.
5 LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader’s Castle 75251 Building Kit
With this LEGO set that’s up next, Darth Vader’s castle, there is a lava flow, an underground hangar, a Sith shrine with holocron and secret compartments. The hangar is where a buildable TIE Advanced Fighter model can be found. There is also a bacta tank, a meditation chamber with holographic communication unit and a meeting platform with a defensive stud-shooter cannon.
This building kit, which includes 1,060 pieces, is exclusive only to Amazon. Furthermore, it, too, comes with minifigures that enhance playtime: Darth Vader, a bacta tank version of Darth Vader, two Royal Guard figures and an Imperial Transport Pilot.
4 LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Transformation 75183 Building Kit
The medical bay scene from Star Wars can be recreated with this LEGO building kit. But there is more… Anakin can be lowered onto a table, a handle can be twisted, and the transformation into Darth Vader takes place!
Yes, the turning table has a space for Anakin on one side and a place for Darth Vader on the other side, and his helmet can be slid into position, just like in the movie, showing that little Ani is gone. Besides these two figurines, Emperor Palpatine is also included, and there are two medical droids that can be built as well.
3 LEGO Star Wars Episode VIII Kylo Ren's Tie Fighter 75179 Building Kit
Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter is another great aspect found within this exciting story, and kids can have many adventures by putting together and playing with this set. The model features large wings and red exhaust detailing, which adds a realistic element to this building kit.
There is an opening at the cockpit, where one of the included minifigures - either Kylo Ren, a First Order TIE Pilot, a First Order Stormtrooper or a BB-9E figure - can be placed. And for added thrills when it comes to this one right here, there are two trigger-activated spring-loaded shooters on this single-pilot vehicle, too!
2 LEGO Star Wars Episode VIII First Order Heavy Assault Walker 75189 Building Kit
In Star Wars, the Rebel alliance fight First Order Heavy Assault Walkers, and at home, people can recreate epic battle scenes that they know and love with this elaborate walker. As usual, the details are just astounding.
The legs and the head are all posable. The cockpit opens up to reveal a spot for a minifigure (Five are included here: Captain Poe Dameron, Rey, a Resistance Trooper, a First Order Walker Driver and a First Order Stormtrooper). And a handle can be turned to aim the top-mounted rapid-fire stud shooter, or the detachable canisters can be used to fire at the Resistance!
1 LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Yoda’s Hut 75208 Building Kit
Yoda’s hut is another very memorable part of this film series, and with 229 pieces, it can be built in detail. Luke can balance and stand on one arm, while practicing his powers with Yoda, on the foldout training sections. A Force jump function can be attached to the front or back of the model, as well.
The inside of the hut is neat, too, with a folding bed, a fireplace and a selection of food and furnishing elements. It just keeps getting better, though, as there is also a secret compartment under the floor and a window for R2-D2.
