Keeping up with LEGO Star Wars collecting

It’s a tricky time for a LEGO Star Wars collector to keep up with the many sets being released. As well as ‘classic saga’ and Rebels products, a new movie every year means new LEGO sets every year. What puts extra pressure on collectors, of course, is the short life span that some of these sets now have. With the launch of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just a month away, it’s a good time to take stock and see what sets you have missed over the last year.


Although it may be hard to believe, the LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens and constraction ranges have only been around for one year. 75100 First Order Snowspeeder is a set that many may have skipped, as it isn’t the most enthralling design and ended up only featuring in the movie’s background. With the more notable Rey’s Speeder launched at the same time, it was an easy release to overlook. But it is accurate to the movie, a solid build and includes three First Order Snowtrooper minifigures.


The LEGO Star Wars constraction line was controversial among AFOLs on launch, but certain characters have proved popular such as General Grievous. Although the less human characters lend themselves better to the design, 75109 Obi-Wan Kenobi is unique in the range as he is the only character clearly from The Clone Wars. With the new Rogue One characters soon to be released, some of these constraction figures will likely be retired and as 4526 Batman proved, they can end up expensive on the aftermarket.

Both 75100 First Order Snowspeeder and 75109 Obi-Wan Kenobi are currently half price at, making it a great opportunity to get these sets before a new onslaught of LEGO Star Wars. To keep on top of the various Amazon discounts available, visit
