LEGO introduced a new series of LEGO Star Wars sets this year called LEGO Star Wars Planets. Each set includes a minifigure, a mini version of an iconic Star Wars vehicle and a “planet”. The “planet” is a hollow globe that can be opened up and used as storage for the whole set, or it can also be hung up to create a mini 3D universe around your room.
We have talked about the Planets sets before, but right now LEGO is offering them in bundles, so I thought to revisit them a bit. The sets are normally $9.99, but LEGO currently offers them by each series (3 sets) for $24.99. Nice little saving if you want to get them all!
The LEGO Star Wars Planets sets have become quite popular with collectors who don’t have the room or the money for the large sets. And for collectors or mini sets in general. They are also great pocket-toys for kids (and adults) who can’t be without at least some LEGO at all times.
So far six LEGO Star Wars Planets sets have been released. They come in waves of 3 at a time. Series One and Two were released this year. And Series Three and Four are scheduled to be released in 2013 (likely Series 3 in January/February and Series 4 in April/May). Here is a list of the sets:
