It’s almost April, and this means it must be time to start seeing some new Star Wars sets in preparation for May the Fourth. This year, we have something a little different: rather than focus on playsets or vehicles, this year we are seeing another 3 sets aimed at adults, based on pivotal moments in the A NewHope and The Empire Strikes Back
The LEGO Group is unveiling a new collection of LEGO® Star Wars™ Diorama building sets to help fans relive their favourite scenes from the original trilogy in LEGO brick form.
The three new sets span iconic scenes from Star Wars: A New Hope and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back to give fans a new way of exploring their love for the early films while building a model they can proudly display once complete.

Inspired by Star Wars: A New Hope, the LEGO Star Wars Death Star™ Trench Run Diorama invites builders to recreate the gripping scene of Darth Vader™’s pursuit of Luke Skywalker™, as Luke fights to destroy the newly-built Death Star for a victory on the Rebellion side. Finish off the build with the memorable words of Darth Vader, “The Force is strong with this one.”

There are so many things I love about these sets: the scale is just right, and the events/locations are all core to the theme. I am also excited to see that new R2D2 figure with printing on the back!
I have these 3 sets waiting to be reviewed at some point coming up. Which would you like to see first? Leave your comments below, and until next time, play well!
