The power is strong with the ever-growing line of Lego Star Wars toys, which added several new building sets on Monday (April 26th).
An Imperial explorer droid and two helmets – a scout soldier and Darth Vader – are available in stores from Monday, and the new R2-D2 launches on May 1st (a few days before Star Wars Day on May 4th due to the well. -Pun used: “May the Fourth be with you.”)
Connected: These Lego ‘Star Wars’ helmets are perfect for your life on the Dark Side
Here are some details about the kits coming Monday:
Lego Darth Vader Helmet
“Pay homage to the Dark Lord of the Sith,” says Lego on its website for Darth Vader’s new helmet. “Darth Vader’s helmet is compact and features a display stand with a nameplate to complete a vibrant centerpiece that will enhance the decor of your home or workplace.”
Fortunately, it will fit in small spaces: only 8 inches (20 cm) high, 5.5 inches (15 cm) wide, and 5.5 inches deep. It also includes a display stand with a sign.
This is the type of stormtrooper that Obi-Wan Kenobi performed his famous “Jedi Mind Trick” on during Star Wars: A New Hope (1977). “Test your building skills and recreate memories of epic Star Wars scenes as you build the scout helmet,” Lego said in a post on its website.
The company promises that you will make a great impression in a small space, as the helmet measures seven inches (18 cm) high, 4.5 inches (11 cm) wide and 4.5 inches (12 cm) deep. It also comes with a display stand and nameplate.
Imperial scout droid
We may have already gone through the snow season and the inevitable Hoth references in most of the northern regions of the world, but nonetheless, this Imperial scout droid really brings back a funny memory of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in 1983. “Droid. it has movable legs and a transparent brick pillar that “hangs” it over a snowy scene, “Lego said on its website.
It takes up ample space at 10.5 “(27 cm) high, 9” (24 cm) wide and 4 “(11 cm) deep. The kit also includes an information board for training all Padawans in your living quarters.
