After his all-too-brief appearance in Revenge of the Sith, General Grievous quickly became a cult favourite among Star Wars fan. This 487-piece set not only includes a ridiculously adorable version of the mechanical villain but also an Obi-Wan minifig plus an airborne clone trooper. The starfighter is also a really fun build to boot, making this a very good value set.

Boba Fett Helmet

LEGO® kits have become quite popular as display pieces in recent years, and this brick-sculpture of Boba Fett helmet is sure to look slick on any bookshelf, mantelpiece or office desk. The included nameplate is a nice little touch which really helps to make it look like more than a plastic toy.

Millennium Falcon

One of the biggest LEGO® sets ever made, this behemoth comes in at over 7,500 pieces and features two different sets of minifigures to man the iconic ship, one based on the original trilogy and one based on the sequel trilogy. There is a

less complex version of the kit

available, with a cheaper price to match, but we think the fully detailed version is worth the hefty price tag.

AT-AT

There are many iconic battles in the Star Wars universe but the Battle of Hoth which opens The Empire Strikes Back, is surely the most intense and exhilarating. This set features a gigantic armoured walker as well as a six minifigures, plus a speeder bike that can be stored inside the AT-AT. If you’re after a set for display purposes this is one of the best in the whole LEGO® range.

Each artwork set can be assembled to create one of several different pictures, this Star Wars variation gives you a choice between either Darth Maul, Kylo Ren or Darth Vader.
