Lego Star Wars Planet Collections – or, oh look! New toys.

February 22, 2012

Picked me up some cool new Lego Star Wars toys today. Haven’t really had the time to open them up, but thought I’d post some pictures here first. Got them at Toys R’ Us. Check out the gallery of pics below:

Quick “thoughts-before-the-review”: RM 50 actually feels a little steep for what amounts to a printed plastic ball and about 50gms of plastic. You get the feeling you’re really paying a premium because they are: 1) Lego, 2) Star Wars and 3) Collectible. The figures aren’t the most iconic Star Wars figures, leaving the Death Star as the most iconic piece of plastic Lego you’ll get. In fact, by the time I went to Toys R’ Us, there were only 4 pieces of the Death Star left.

A thought that struck me as I felt my hand reaching to my wallet as if possessed by some unnatural force, was that it’s products like this that best demonstrate the power and amazing value of a brand. Quite literally, making plastic, worth its weight in gold.
