5 of The Coolest Star Wars LEGO Sets EVER

Lego Star Wars Sandcrawler

Star Wars Sandcrawler 75059

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.

Star Destroyer

Star Wars UCS Imperial Star Destroyer 10030

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.

Star Wars Motorized AT-AT

Star Wars LEGO Motorized Walking AT-AT

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. 



LEGO Star Wars Death Star

Star Wars Death Star 10188

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. 


Millennium Falcon

LEGO Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon 10188

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.

  1. My favorite family vacation memory would have to be the trip to Florida with my husband and son. We visited all four Disney World Parks, Universal and Cocoa Beach. It was a really great trip.

  2. Let me hide this post from my son! lol He is Lego king right now. We have so many pieces around the house. He keeps re-configuring all of his sets. He’d love these!

  3. I guess my favorite would be the annual softball game we would play on the beach when the “whole” family vacationed together.

  4. My boys have the Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer and are still building it! We visited LEGOLAND Florida and they LOVED it. I’m sure we’d enjoy a trip to the California location even more :)

  5. I would have to say the most memorable vacation we ever had was to hawaii We went snorkling one time and saw lots of fish as I was taking underwater pictures of the fish a puffer fish kept getting right into my face. He didn’t want food he just want to look at me. at first it freaked me out. I told me husband the puffer was following me. He put his face in the water and there he was. We swam away and then put our face in the water again he was there. My husband said he just likes me. That was just to funny and to this day we laugh about the photos of the puffer fish in all pictures.

  6. best memories was the cruise and DisneyWorld with my Daughter and her family last summer. the best was swimming with the sea lions and my daughter renewing her wedding vows

  7. Best vacation so far? Surprising our 3 kids with a Christmas present vacation to Disneyland!!!

    Told them on the way to California!!!

  8. Amazing! this is really great. i think this is very hard it spent more hours or a day weeks or what just to turn into this design

  9. We absolutely LOVE Legos in our house and I can’t wait for my boys to be old enough to appreciate things like this. I just saw the amazing Nature Connects Lego exhibit…check it out!

  10. When I was a teenager, my mom and dad took us to New Zealand in the 80’s — before it was popular to do so. Was an amazing trip!

  11. My favorite vacation ever was when my parents took me on a surprise trip to Disney World when I was about 5 years old. I had no idea where we were going until after our plane ride to Florida! It was a magical vacation.

  12. My fave vacation memory was taking our then three year old on aDisney cruise. The joy on his face the whole time was priceless.

  13. Those are pretty insane – I’ve seen the Falcon model before, but not the others. That would be a lot of fun to build.

  14. My favorite family vacation memory is probably when I went to Maui with my parents before my senior year of high school. I was finally old enough not to be embarrassed to be seen with them and have fun. Plus we had a convertible! Sadly I haven’t gotten to make any vacation memories with my kids yet, but I hope to soon!

  15. The best family vacation was taking our boys to Hawaii for the first time to see our family and friends there. They have visiting, playing in the sun and sand and meeting Mickey at the Aulani!

  16. My favorite family vacation memory was snorkeling in Hawaii. Seeing the underwater world was magical for my niece who had just learned to swim!

  17. I have to say my favorite memory on a family trip is surprising my husbands 95 year old aunt and taking her dinner! :) She was so happy and it meant a lot to her!

  18. Fave family vacation memory was heading to Hawaii with 17 adult family members and my 3 year old daughter. Never had so many babysitters! ;-)

  19. Door county in Wisconsin, five state parks one tiny stip of land and a plethora of light houses. The fall is stunning up there, the spring should be good too. I hope to go back in the spring.

  20. First of all, those sets are epic. Favorite family vacation memory would be when we went to Gulf Shores. It was the first time I’d ever been to the beach, and I saw a sea turtle.

  21. My favorite family vacation memory is from our first vacay. We flew to Maui from San Diego when our son was 11 months old. We had such a great time!

  22. Best family vacation memory ever, was probably when I decided to move to the Caribbean! I took my fiance and all our kids (6 kids) to an Island Paradise in the Caribbean, and created the biggest vacation ever by snorkeling on the Coral Reefs of Roatan, Honduras, and lapping up the paradisaical white sand beaches, and eating some of the best food, and learning about marine life with my kids. Several of them went back home to Los Angeles after a few weeks, to start school in the US, but I stayed with my fiance and a couple of our kids enrolled in a bilingual school on the island, and we continued to live there for almost 2 years, until we decided to move to Cancun! But that … is another incredible story/adventure! :)
