Star Wars Legos are the greatest thing according to my 10 year old son. He has been building legos since he was about 5 and he has built the cars, the Bionicles and the other action sets but Star Wars Lego Sets are by far his favorite.
There are many Star Wars Legos to chose from, you can either be a good guy or join the Dark Side. He started out building some of the more basic Star Wars Lego Sets and is always looking for the next challenge. Every time we go to Target or WalMart we have to check and see if there is a new Star Wars Legos Set out.
Star Wars Legos come in sets as low as $ 10 up to hundreds of dollars. While the smaller Star Wars Lego Sets are relatively easy to build, usually having only a few bags of parts, some of the bigger Star Wars Legos have many bags of parts and several assembly manuals. On thing we found out the hard way, is the parts bags are usually logically grouped so that similar parts for a particular assembly portion are grouped together. Now when he builds a Star Wars Lego set, he puts each bag into a small bowl rather than dumping them all together in one big bowl.
The biggest Star Wars Lego Sets he has built so far must have had 400 pieces. I know it ran around $ 50 or so and kept him busy for several nights. Every so often he would come over and show me how some part went together and what it could do. One of my favorite Star Wars Lego Sets he built is one of the walkers (sorry, Star Wars fans, I know it’s called something more complex than that). It was kind of hard to build because so many of the pieces were gray. It looks really cool on display.
One thing I have noticed about Star Wars Legos, and it probably holds true with any Legos set, is my son always wants to see what “guys” come with the kit. Some of the Star Wars Legos kits come with 4 or 5 guys. Very important in the Lego world.
One day when I thought we had bought all the Star Wars Lego Sets, I went on line to see what is available. Wow!! That’s where I found out just how big some of the Star Wars Legos can be. You can even build the Death Star, if you can afford it and you have the patience. My son insists that he will buy it someday.
As for “guys”, you can actually buy Star Wars Lego Kits of actual characters like Darth Vader, very cool.
I have always like Legos and all though I am not a Star Wars fan, I really like the fact that my son spends hours building them and is proud to display them. Besides, there is much more to life than video games. Oh yeah, you can get a Star Wars Legos video game to!
Amazon offers some really cool Star Wars Legos Sets you won’t find at your local big buy store, check it out.
