LEGO STAR WARS Collection 2017
(LEGO Systems $79.99 - $ 799.00)
There are so many amazing choices in the STAR WARS collection this year. It depends on your budget and level of expertise as a builder. BB-8 Droid ($99.99) from the new Star Wars movie trilogy has 1106 pieces with a wheel that rotates the head and another that opens the hatch and moves the welding torch. It comes with a display stand, but be forewarned, it does not roll and when completed is about 9” high. Marked 10-16, in other words, experienced builders.
The Resistance Bomber ($109.99) and the smaller Kylo Ren’s Tie Fighter ($79.99) are both geared for battle with all kinds of spring loaded weapons. We generally steer clear of toys with guns and flying projectiles but it's STAR WARS. This is true of the 1416 piece First Order Star Destroyer ($159.99) with a working elevator, wings that open to revel the interior as well as blasters and 8 sided-firing stud shooters.
And for the ultimate fantasy STAR WARS gift, the largest, most detailed model ever created—the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon model is $799.99! The set comes with 7,500 pieces! [We did not get to build or test this one as we went to press with our Platinum List. ]
