FOR THE Star Wars junkie, there is no end to the movies, TV shows, books, and merchandise that further immerse you in the beloved canon. But if you’ve read all the books, caught up on all the shows, and rewatched all the movies enough to quote your way through them, we have an idea of what might hold you over until the next movie comes out (though, sorry to say, it looks like it won’t be Rogue Squadron).
For a relatively cheap yet fun way to engage with your favorite franchise, why not get yourself a 432-piece LEGO TIE Fighter set for 20 percent off on Amazon? With a 4.9-star rating on Amazon, this LEGO set captures the sleek, futuristic nature of the Empire’s TIE Fighters, and even gives you a stormtrooper, TIE Fighter pilot, and NI-L8 figurines to accompany your finished TIE Fighter. Plus, it comes with neon green missiles you can blast out of your Fighter for an extra dose of interactive fun.
Despite it having over 400 pieces, a few Amazon reviewers said it didn’t take them more than a day to build. And the beauty of it is, once you’ve built it, you can put it in your home office, your entertainment center, or even bestow it to one of your kids and display it in their room (assuming they don’t want to build it with you).
You can get the Lego TIE Fighter set for just over $35 right now, and if you want to round out your collection, throw in a TIE Bomber LEGO set that includes a Darth Vader figurine. With a couple hundred more pieces than the TIE Fighter, this is a nice step up in difficulty. But if you really want to go for it, pick up a LEGO AT-AT Walker Set that has 6,785 pieces for a cool $850.
Or, of course, you can just start with the cost-effective TIE Fighter set and see where it takes you…
