LEGO Star Wars

I love the thought of presents which get both father and child playing together especially as it's a day which celebrates their love for one another. what better way then something from the ever growing range of LEGO. This January saw the launch of new sets for the LEGO Star Wars range. It includes models from the films as well as Star Wars: The Clone Wars vehicles and mini figure. They have something on offer for every LEGO Star Wars fan and collector.

We got sent the Imperial V-wing Starfighter to put together, review have some fun with. The Imperial Starfighter comes about (which I'm sure any Star Wars fan already knows) after the fall of the Galactic Republic at the end of the Clone Wars, the V-wing starfighter became one of the first starfighters of the growing empire. With working cockpit and rotating wings for flying and landing modes, the Imperial V-wing is used to hunt down the Rebel Alliance. It includes two little figures - Imperial pilot and astromech droid R2-Q2.

Together they built it following the easy to follow step by step instructions and then flew it around the living room. I'm quite proud to say it's still in one piece today which is amazing considering how destructive a certain toddler can be at times. I'm sure over the next few years, these Lego sets will be all over the house.

If you're looking to add to his or even her collection of LEGO Star Wars why not get him the T-6 Jedi Shuttle, Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship, The Battle of Naboo or help build up his crack team of clone troopers with the Clone Trooper Battle Pack.
