Big Star Wars Set on it’s Way!

Posted on Updated on

               Over the few years LEGO has been making more sets from episode VI, Return of the Jedi.  LEGO is about to release one of its biggest Star Wars sets ever.  1990 pieces, 16 minifigures, $250 (USD) LEGO is going to release Ewok Village on September 1, 2013!

I really love the detail in the image above.  The Ewok village has many plants on it which really makes it look like its in the trees. 🙄 It really looks like the real thing (see image beside).  One thing I do like is the bridge and how they made it look droopy and not straight.

            Above are some better looks that the set. It seems that there are two parts of the set, the tree house connected to the bridge and with the ladder (image on the right) and the main area (the left image).  In the image below you can see the (adorable) little teddy bears (ewoks) set a trap for the Stormrooper.  The trap is to smash the trooper between two logs, what I think is cool about that is that trap was in the movie!

I think we covered a lot on the set, let’s now move onto the minifigs.  There are 16 minifigures total. The image I found is a little confusing because it shows some of the minifigs twice, the reason some of them are like that is because some of the minifigs have a double sided head.

We also have some interesting facts from, LEGO shop, about this cool set!
