Since 1999, Lego has been releasing sets based on the iconic Star Wars franchise. These sets include characters and vehicles from the movies and expanded universe, and allow fans to build their own versions of these beloved items.
The first Lego Star Wars sets coincided with the release of Episode I: The Phantom Menace. These sets included the Naboo Starfighter, the Jedi starfighter, and the iconic Millennium Falcon. Since then, Lego has released hundreds of sets, from microfighters to massive sets like the UCS Millennium Falcon.
In addition to the sets, Lego has also released various video games based on the Star Wars franchise. These games include Lego Star Wars: The Video Game, which covers the events of the original trilogy and prequel trilogy, and Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, which includes all six movies in one game.
One unique aspect of Lego Star Wars sets is the inclusion of minifigures. These figures are highly detailed and often include accessories that correspond with the character they represent. Some characters, like Darth Vader and R2-D2, have been included in multiple sets with different designs.
In recent years, Lego has also released sets based on the newer Star Wars movies, such as The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. These sets often include characters and vehicles specific to those movies.
Lego Star Wars sets are a popular choice for both Lego fans and Star Wars enthusiasts, and continue to be a staple in both franchises.
