For years I’ve been a Lego traditionalist, preferring to get nostalgic over the classic Lego Space, Castle, and Pirates sets over the Star Wars set, which I always felt we more of a cash grab by the Danish plastic brick company.
Then, during my tenure at TechRadar’s sibling publication Tom’s Guide, I got to try a recent Lego Star Wars set. And I got the appeal. There’s something that… well… just works when the Lego aesthetic meets that lived-in sci-fi look of Star Wars.
Now I don’t have a mass of space, being in a small London apartment, so it’s not easy to find room for Lego sets. Yet, there is now a selection of appealing sets that have all been cut in price as the Black Friday deals get underway. So yeah, I’m getting a strange mix of nostalgia-tinged sci-fi nerd lust over these sets.
While you won’t find savings in the hundreds, as these aren’t the super-expensive sets like the Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon which was cut to £551.24 at John Lewis in the UK, the discounts are still generous. So read on for the models I think will take your imagination to a galaxy a long time ago, far, far away…
You’ll note that I’ve chosen ships and vehicles here because I think they are some of the best bits 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.
