I’ve been a Lego traditionalist for years and prefer to wax nostalgic about the classic Lego Space, Castle and Pirates sets over the Star Wars set, which I always felt like we were more of a cash grab from the Danish plastic brick company.
Then, during my tenure at Ny Breaking’s sister publication Tom’s Guide, I got to try out a recent Lego Star Wars set. And I got the appeal. There’s something that…well…just works when the Lego aesthetic meets the lived-in sci-fi look of Star Wars.
Now I don’t have much space because I live in a small apartment in London, so it’s not easy to find space for Lego sets. Still, there’s now a selection of attractive sets that have all been reduced in price as the Black Friday deals get underway. So yeah, I’m getting a strange mix of nostalgia-tinged sci-fi nerd lust about these sets.
Although you won’t find hundreds of savings as these aren’t the super expensive sets like the Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon that was reduced to £551.24 at John Lewis in Britain, the discounts are still generous. So read on for the models that I think will transport your imagination to a galaxy long ago, far, far away…
You’ll notice that I chose ships and vehicles here because I think they are some of the best parts of Star Wars Lego. If you want more deals on Lego Star Wars and more, check out our roundup of the best Black Friday Lego deals.
