I guess this had to happen sooner or later: Lego's latest and greatest Star Wars megaset is not an awesome spaceship, a short astromech or a moon-sized metal ball that makes death. No, my dear friends, this 1,990-piece set is the Ewok Village.
For that price, you get to build "a tree-trunk hideout, secret Lightsaber stash, spider web, net traps, slide, catapults, an elevating throne, a bridge, rope walkways, vine and leaf elements, kitchen, food storage area, bedroom and a planning room." Plus! this cool speeder bike.
The company says that "builders can construct one of the most famous Star Wars scenes when Luke and Leia realize they are siblings." They are talking about this scene:
Lego also says that kids will be able to "use the rammer function to take out the Scout Trooper’s speeder." Adults, on the other hand, will use a hammer to smash all of it, then use the pieces to build something really cool. Like a scene from the Lord of the Rings or something. Of course, don't destroy the minifigs. Some are new and not available elsewhere, like Endor Princess Leia, Endor C-3PO, Endor Luke, Endor Han Solo and the damn Wicket.
Honestly, the set looks very nice and detailed. Kids will love it. And for adult Lego fans, it's a great source of pieces. Also, it's huge. Over a foot tall.
The set will be available in September 2013.
