What Are the Best Star Wars Lego Sets to Buy?

There's something magical about Lego and that's probably part of why it has become such an enduring child's toy.

Actually, it's more than a toy, it's a portal to another world where children (and adults who are never too old!) can build anything they wish.

If you want to build characters and spaceships from the world of Star Wars, Lego has you covered. With the return of Star Wars movies in the form of The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, Rogue One, and The Rise of Skywalker there has been an opportunity for fans to have a new look at what Lego sets are on offer.

We have in this top list of awesome Star Wars Lego sets a few of the popular sets from the new movies and some of the classics as well! Most of them are under $100 and there's some great value to be had.

Star Wars Rebel Trooper Battle Pack

Build up your Rebel forces and celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back with this Hoth base set.
When the Empire attacks the hidden Rebel base on the ice planet, Hoth, brave Rebel troopers and pilots fight back with their combat speeder with flick-firing missiles. The set includes three Rebel troopers in cold-weather gear and Rebel pilot Zev Senesca who keen fans may recognize as pilot Rogue Two, the one who finds Han and Luke.
  • Includes one Zev Senesca and three Rebel troopers with new Hoth helmet Minifigures.
  • Ice cutter includes two flick-fire missiles, a rotating gun, and a cargo box.
  • Allows the child to reimagine the opening scene of The Empire Strikes Back.
  • There are 79 pieces in this pack.
  • It does not come with the best pH meter for making beer.

A reviewer on Amazon spoke quite highly of the set:

“I purchased this as a gift for a five-year-old boy. He immediately opened it and tackled building it. He successfully completed it that afternoon. A big plus for Lego toys is the instructions: Lego got its instructions right. That a five-year-old can assemble this toy on his own, without help, pretty much says it all.

The directions are clear and easy to understand. Their method is to show all of the parts needed for each step, which allows you to collect the parts needed before you start each step.”

That's some firm praise! Check out the price on Amazon.
