We talked about the 2013 LEGO Star Wars sets already, but only briefly mentioned the LEGO Star Wars Planets series coming out this year. However since now we have pictures I thought it is a good time to revisit these mini LEGO Star Wars sets.
The LEGO Star Wars Planets series started last year with three planets in Series 1 and three planets in Series 2. This year we will be getting Series 3 and Series 4 with three more planets in each. Bringing the LEGO Star Wars Buildable Galaxy Collection (another name for these sets) to 12 planets all – well, kind of… because as you will see Planet Endor shows up twice and some are not really planets (like the Asteroid field)…
Each of the LEGO Star Wars Planets contain a mini model of a Star Wars vehicle, a minifigure, and a printed globe that represent a planet. The globe can be hung up with a hook at the top to create your own Universe, or it can also be opened up to store both the minifigure and the vehicle.
I know some LEGO Star Wars fans who love these little sets and collect them. I have also seen some pretty creative designs using those globe pieces - which were originally considered quite useless. Other Star Wars fans are still not sure if they should get into collecting these miniature sets. One thing is for sure though; if you want to get into LEGO Star Wars without breaking the bank, the LEGO Star Wars Planets series is your best option. You get some nice minifigures, and some swooshable mini-models for the fraction of the price of the bigger LEGO Star Wars sets.
Below are the 2013 LEGO Star Wars Planets sets in Series 3 and Series 4, so you can decide if you would like to get into collecting them.
