While not the most awe-inspiring of vehicles from the Star Wars Trilogy, the Sandcrawler definitely ups in cool factor once it’s in LEGO form. The set comes with some of our favorite mini figures including R2-D2, C-3PO, numerous Jawas, droids and of course Uncle Owen Lars. Like the best LEGO Sets this one has moving parts including a removable middle compartment complete with a cockpit for Jawa.
This set is part of the Ultimate Collector Series and comes with a whopping 3,104 LEGO pieces, just right for an rainy afternoon. Or two. Or three. At over 3 feet long (!!!) this model dwarfs any other LEGO Star Wars ship produced to date.
Seriously, it actually walks. The fact that it’s motorized AND comes in LEGO form? Even cooler. It stands at over 12″ Tall and 14″ long. Plus it features an opening cockpit, rotating laser canons and a handle on top for transport.
My dad is a huge Star Wars fan and this one is #1 on his dream sheet. The Death Star comes complete with incredible array of minifigure-scale scenes, moving parts, characters and accessories from Episodes IV and VI on its multiple decks, including the Death Star control room, rotating turbolaser turrets, hangar bay with TIE Advanced starfighter, tractor beam controls, Emperor’s throne room, detention block, firing laser cannon, Imperial conference chamber, droid maintenance facility, and the powerful Death Star superlaser – just to name a few.
Perhaps the most obvious choice, this takes most epic, coolest LEGO Star Wars set EVER. At a jaw dropping 5,195 pieces, this set is a feat. One of the coolest parts of the set is that it’s actually to scale! Special features include a retractable boarding ramp, a removable cockpit top to access mini-figures, rotatable guns and the class mini figures: Han Solo, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan, Luke, and Leia.
