Whether you want something new from Star Wars or you're content with the classics, LEGO has something Star Wars for you. Two new construction sets recreate the look of an AT-ST from the new The Mandalorian series and the classic character of Yoda.
With the 540 pieces in the AT-ST Raider set, model number 75254, kids get to build an AT-ST model. If you don't know, that stands for All-Terrain Scout Transport. LEGO has done an AT-ST Walker before, but this new version is based on the upcoming The Mandalorian movie. It comes with four minifigures: the Mandalorian, Cara Dune, and two Klatooinian Raiders. All of the minifigures carry weapon accessories. There is space in the AT-ST cockpit for one of the minifigures to ride, and you can pretend that the minifigure is launching projectiles. The top of the AT-ST rotates, and it also has poseable legs.
Use 1,771 pieces in the Yoda set, model number 75255, to build a large Yoda - 16 inches to be exact. Yoda wears his signature Jedi robes and carries his green lightsaber. The head is slightly poseable (it swivels from side to side) and has adjustable eyes. You can rotate the eyelids so that Yoda looks angry or give him a softer look. Yoda's fingers are poseable, but the hands are not, so don't try to make Yoda do any lightsaber swings or you'll break it. Along with the large figure, the set includes a Yoda minifigure with lightsaber that stands on an informational display piece, commemorating this classic movie character.
The AT-ST set will be fun for fans who want to play out the action from the new movie and collect minifigures of some of the new characters. This set will definitely get Star Wars fans excited about what's to come when the movie hits theaters in December.
The Yoda set, on the other hand, is more of a display piece for fans. It does have some moving parts, but it's not very playable. It does make a nice addition to a Star Wars collection, though.
The AT-ST set is for ages 8 and up, while the Yoda set is for ages 10 and up. Both will be fun for Star Wars fans who like building with LEGO.
For Yoda, it took 3 and a half hours to build, while the AT-ST was a bit smaller and took about 30 minutes.
Each set is sold separately.
