Things sure have changed since we were kids, especially when it comes to LEGO! That said, we firmly believe that you are NEVER too old for LEGO play sets, especially these!
1. The Back to the Future LEGO Playset
This set comes with the DeLorean as well as Marty McFly, the Doc and a skateboard! Retailing at $34.99 it’s not a bad deal either and we may already have picked one up for a certain someone on our Christmas list!
Yes, it’s another Star Wars set but seriously…it’s the Millennium Falcon! This set comes with Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Ben Kenobi, Princess Leia Organa and Darth Vader (seriously, can you say INCREDIBLY AWESOME?!) The retail on this one is $133 but it’s totally worth it to see your geek completely freak out.
Because Gandalf, that’s why. This might not be the best action set of the LOTR LEGO playsets (hang tight, we’ve got one of those coming up too) but it’s a pretty awesome set all the same because it features Bilbo Baggins in Shire outfit, Gandalf the Grey, Balin the Dwarf, Dwalin the Dwarf, Bombur the Dwarf and Bofur the Dwarf, all with assorted weapons. Plus, the retail on this LOTR LEGO set is only $55.36 which is way cheaper than our final LEGO set of the day.
This set is by far our favorite Lord of the Rings LEGO playset (yes, even though it doesn’t have Gandalf) because it has a castle and a bomb and a catapult. This LEGO set comes with Aragorn, King Théoden, Gimli, and Haldir as well as a small Uruk-hai army of four. The retail price on this one reflects the addition of the interactive castle though and it retails for $113.18.
We admit that you have to be pretty spoiled to have this one in your collection but seriously guys, it is the Death Star! This set comes with Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi™, C-3PO™, R2-D2™, Princess Leia™, Chewbacca™, Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight), Darth Vader™, Grand Moff Tarkin™, Emperor Palpatine™, 2 Stormtroopers, 2 Emperor’s Royal Guards™, R2-Q5™, and mouse droid. Plus, the Death Star itself measures more than a foot wide and has multiple interactive features AND its own TIE advanced Starfighter! You might not love us so much when you see the price on this one though, it retails for a whopping $399.95…ask any geek though and they’ll tell you it’s worth it!
