LEGO Star Wars Theme

Since its conception in Denmark in 1934, LEGO has produced some of the most popular toys in the world. Advancing from the idea of blocks that could be stacked, LEGO created revolutionary toys that could be locked together. It seems like LEGOs have come a long way since then, and in fact they have. Since their creation, very few toys have inspired the same level of creativity that you can find in LEGOs. While you can buy specific LEGO sets, it's up to you to decide on how to assemble the pieces.
Moving beyond simple bricks that can be locked together, LEGO has created several toy sets that range from all different periods of history and the future. Those that love medieval times can enjoy gigantic castle sets, while those who have a taste for the future can enjoy robot themed LEGOs. Fans of the American west can even enjoy wild west themed LEGOs. LEGO hasn't limited itself to these basic themes either. They have also based many LEGO sets on movie franchises such as Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars.
Star Wars LEGO sets have proven to be some of the most popular LEGOs, and with such a rich film history to draw on, it's no wonder. The first LEGO Starwars set was released in 1999: the LEGO X-Wing. Since then, there have been LEGO sets created that go with the original trilogy and each of the first three prequels of the Star Wars saga. In addition to the immense popularity of the toys, LEGO has even created a series of LEGO Star Wars games on every major console.
One of the most popular LEGO Starwars toys released yet is the LEGO Starwars Anakin's Fighter (Set 7669), which comes from the new Clone Wars TV Series. This ship is a customized Jedi starfighter that has flick-firing missiles, an ejection button for R2-D2, and retractable landing gear. And of course, it includes Anakin Skywalker and R2-D2 figurines. At only 153 pieces, it's simple enough for kids around 8-10 years old, but it's cool enjoy for a Star Wars Enthusiast of any age to enjoy. This ship can be the beginning of an entire collection of LEGO Star Wars Toys.
