Special Edition Star Wars Sets To Celebrate 20 Years With Lego

by Gary Catig

In 1999, Lego first obtained licensing rights to Star Wars and began producing building sets based off of the influential pop culture franchise. Recently, at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, the company officially announced special Lego Star Wars sets to commemorate the 20th year anniversary.

There are a total of five sets based off of the original and prequel trilogies. In addition, each set comes with a classic Lego Star Wars character in their original form along with an exclusive base with the 20 years logo. Take a closer look at each set and expect these to drop sometime in April.
