Star Wars Lego Series

The LEGO Company was formed in 1934, when after the loss of his woodworking shop in the Great Depression, it's founder Ole Kirk Christiansen shifted his career into making toys for children. They made yo-yos and wooden toys for years however before the development of their first "Automatic Binding Bricks" in 1947. However it wasn't until 1953 that they became the versatile little building toys that we are all so fond of today.
The first Lego system was created in 1966. The Lego Train Set, which included a build able train with a motor, has been so successful that it is still being modified and released today. Since then, the Lego Company released a number of other systems, including boats, towns, and space in which you would buy one building, or spaceship at a time and construct it to form the ultimate set. Their systems became increasingly more complex and adventurous over the years, and now it wouldn't be uncommon to find yourself building a pirate ship, or an Egyptian pyramid or constructing and fortifying a LEGO castle from mini LEGO invaders. They've even stepped into the sports, comics, and cartoon worlds, bringing characters (such as Spiderman, Indiana Jones, Sponge bob, or even Harry Potter) and places to children and adults alike in a hands on, interactive way.
Of course, one of the most popular LEGO themes to ever hit the market is Lego Star Wars. In 1999 Star Wars became the first intellectual property to be licensed in the history of the Lego group. Their first installment in this series was the Lego X-wing Star fighter--the famous star fighter that Luke Skywalker defeated the Death Star in. Soon afterward, this was followed by several sets based on the original trilogy, and more recently based on the prequel trilogy. Lego also released an Ultimate Collector's Series, which was released in a limited quantity and includes items from both the original and the prequel trilogy, from the Millennium Falcon to General Grievous. They have also produced three Lego Star Wars video games that incorporate the entire saga.
With the Lego X-Wing Star fighter set, you can relive the exciting days of the Rebel Alliance and their conflict with the evil Empire. This rare set, the first installation in the coalition between LEGO and Lucas Arts, comes complete with parts to customize your fighter to be that of Luke Skywalker's Red Five, or Wedge Antilles' Red Three snub fighter! It also includes mini-figures of the Alliance's greatest heroes--Wedge Antilles, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, R2-D2, and the mighty Chewbacca. With this great classic set you have everything you need to defeat the Empire and save the day.
