Iconic scenes from the original saga of starwars rescues Lego for his most recent trilogy of dioramas. Starting at $60 dollars, the sets are now available for reservation at the website from the Danish toymaker.
The most affordable kit is that of Luke Skywalker escaping the Death Star escorted by three TIE Fighters, including Darth Vader’s. It is the smallest of the series, at 4.0 inches (10 cm) high, 8.5 inches (22 cm) wide, and 6.0 inches (15 cm) deep. The box contains 665 pieces.
There are at least two fascinating details that are obvious even to those who are not unconditional fans of the cinematic epic. The first is the careful reconstruction of the tunnel walls; the second, the green rays that emerge from the cannons of enemy ships.
The middle set is the Death Star trash compactor diorama. For $90, you can recreate with 802 pieces the moment when four of the series’ most beloved characters were nearly crushed to death.
Luke, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Princess Leia appear inside the machine, according to the photographs that the firm advanced, while R2-D2 and C-3PO wait on the other side of the door. This kit has similar dimensions to the previous one.
The curiosity is that in the scene both Skywalker and Solo appear dressed as stormtroopers. The diorama includes movable walls, a dianoga’s head and the compactor’s control panel. The delight for fans comes with a plaque of Harrison Ford’s text: “One thing is for sure: we will all be a lot thinner.”
The third and most complex package corresponds to Jedi training on Dagobah. With 1,000 pieces for $80, showing the young trainee taking classes with Yoda. The house of the wise master, R2-D2 and the X-wing buried in the swamp complete the picture.
All three can be booked now and will be in stores from April 26. The trash compactor set will only be available at brick-and-mortar Lego stores and the Walmart retail chain.
