Another big year for the Star WarsTM film franchise means another smashing debut of new products from the LEGO Group! In 1998, Star Wars became the very first licensed product line in LEGO Group history, and to date, also is one of the most successful lines in terms of both sales and appeal. Star Wars is the best-selling licensed property in the company’s history.

Last year’s re-launch of the iconic LEGO® Millennium Falcon™ to support the release of the Trilogy on DVD was the second best-selling item in the entire company portfolio for the year. Similarly, the X-Wing Fighter™ and Rebel Snowspeeder™ made the top 10 list.

This year, two February teaser items and nine early-spring items round out the 11-item assortment that includes LEGO versions of vehicles and scenes primarily from Episode III, hitting theatres in May. Additionally, a new low-tech light-up functionality has been added to select minifigure character’s lightsabers to further enhance role play ability and collectibility.

  • #7251 Darth VaderTM Transformation - $6.99, Ages 6+
