The 1703-piece set is a realistic model of the Rebel Alliance aircraft that appears in "Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back." And if that doesn’t mean much to you — don’t worry, you’re not alone — but Star Wars-loving kids will definitely know about it.
On the surface, this LEGO set is just plain fun, but it's also an exercise in patience and diligence as kids take on the challenge of building the Snowspeeder over winter break. One reviewer spent a total of eight hours on the build over three days on-and-off.
But the build and the commitment is part of the fun. “This is an amazing set,” said another reviewer. “I loved every minute of putting it together.”
With a deal like this one, there's a good chance lots of kids will be busy building this winter. But, if you're worried about how to store them, don't worry: we found some genius Lego storage hacks for that.
