I was delighted to receive the following two sets from the new range at LEGO; I had Commander Cody and Jango Fett both with an RRP of £14.99.
The range includes many more figures, Darth Vader especially looks very commanding and impressive, even though he is the bad guy I do love his screen presence and his LEGO figure holds the same awe.
The new LEGO Star Wars™ Force Awakens range is ideal for Christmas gifts, children love LEGO but these particular sets are well timed for the film release in December. I have a feeling Christmas wish lists will be very Star Wars heavy in 2015!
These figures once built allow you to recreate scenes from the film and relive the excitement all over again. Each set has fabulous details to enhance playability, Jango Fett as a dangerous bounty hunter coming complete with blaster pistols and a jetpack and Commander Cody has a sizeable blaster rifle! So with two villains at home I really need to purchase a good guy or two to make it a fair battle, with a few more characters the boys would also have more fun interacting with the figures, seeing how the different weapons work and coming up with their own story lines.
I think the price is very reasonable for the evident quality of the models. It’s wonderful having the entertainment of building the set, both the ones we were sent were for ages 7-12, each provide adequate challenge but the instructions are always clear so its an achievable project for children in that age range. Then you can go one of two ways, display your builds proudly or use them to engage in impressive battles (the boys preferred option). Thankfully the models are quite sturdy so you do not have to build the figure back up if you’re a little rough (I find the 6 year old tends to go all out in fight scenes!).
