LEGO's Buildable Force Awakens

It's a new year, and as is custom, that means NEW LEGO SETS!! It's fantastic to see excitement building for LEGO again as my geeky generation ages and has children of their own...who they have to fight to keep away from their LEGO sets. I SAID THE DUPLO IS YOUR STUFF! DON'T TOUCH MY THINGS!!! Damn kids. They expect to get fed and clothed...and then they want your toys too. Arguably one of LEGO's biggest licenses is Star Wars and a little film called The Force Awakens is certainly cause for plenty of building...

Mainstream geeks may not be to familiar with the relatively new concept of the "Buildable Figure" from LEGO, but sales must be strong for the Star Wars additions (at the very least..and we say this because no other line really uses the format as much as Star Wars does) as we've seen a stack of these kits in the last 6 months. Now, focusing solely on the mega movie The Force Awakens, LEGO has sent out another round of buildable figures which should be hitting stores...right...meow. The lineup includes...

Captain Phasma
Kylo Ren
Poe Dameron
1st Order Storm Trooper


  1. I'm trying to avoid getting back into anything LEGO but the Rey, Phasma, and Kylo Ren are all definitely tempting. Actually, they're all pretty tempting. Where's BB-8, though?
