From now through May 4, known by fans as Star Wars Day (for the way the date sounds like the catchphrase, ‘May the force be with you’), LEGO is offering a slew of cool Star Wars themed sets, perfect for the space drama nerds in your house, whether it’s your kids, your partner, or you.
Starting today, you can peruse the offerings, which range from Luke Skywalker’s new Landspeeder set to the actual trash compactor set from the famed movie scene, and there’s something at every price point. Some of the promotions require VIP access, but don’t despair — you can join their free VIP loyalty program via LEGO’s website.
If you’ve got aficionados of Lego and Star Wars at home, these sets are sure to keep kids — and adults — occupied for hours of hands-on, screen-free entertainment. Just don’t step on them.
We only include products that have been independently selected by Scary Mommy’s editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.
This faithful replica comes with details they'll appreciate, like a specially-molded windshield, a missing port turbine cover revealing scrap parts, and a driving stick and detailed dashboard display. Also included are minifigures of Luke Skywalker and a newly-designed C-P3O. This 1890-piece set measures 4" high, 12" wide, and 20" long, and is recommended for builders 18 and up.
For the older, more meticulous LEGO builders in your house, this iconic Darth Vader helmet makes for a birthday/graduation/holiday gift of the year. Once they’re done assembling the helmet, display it with the nameplate for some serious Star Wars decor. Includes 834 pieces and, when complete, measures over 8” high.
Brace yourself for “Mom, can you play a Star Wars battle with me?” with this 501st Legion Clone Troopers kit, which includes 285 pieces and is great for the little ones ages seven and up. This building kit includes four LEGO minifigures: three 501st Clone Troopers and a 501st Jet Trooper, with jetpack element, plus two Battle Droids and weapons for battles. Once assembled, the Walker measures over 7” tall – a good, portable size to throw in a backpack and take to friends’ houses.
Through May 8, LEGO is also running the following promotions:
- LEGO Star Wars purchases totaling over $40 will get you an AT-ST walker set.
- LEGO Star Wars purchases totaling over $160 will get you a Lars Family Homestead Kitchen set.
