Each year, some cool Star Wars stuff comes out and this year is no different. Last year (2017), in the toy section for Star Wars, we saw exciting toys like Anovos’ Star Wars Helmets and Armor and Hasbro’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi Figures and Accessories, among many other new and exciting Star Wars merchandise being introduced …and the crowd went wild, as they usually do with Star Wars. Now, this year, we have the Lego Star Wars Yoda’s Hut, and I must say, if you are a fan of Yoda like me, then this is something you’re going to want to hear about.
This is the second version of the Yoda’s Hut Set – back in 2004, there was a version that was included with an X-Wing. That version was actually a bit different from this version right here. This set is a major upgrade from the original version.
This Lego Star Wars Yoda’s Hut is recommended for the ages 7 to 12. However, I personally know some adults that wouldn’t mind having this set.
In this set, there are a total of 229 pieces. There are three mini figures – Yoda, Luke Skywalker and R2D2.
The Yoda figurine is one of my favorites and he looks great in this set. He even has a bit of gray hair printed on his head, which looks very nice. His ears even have a cool shape to them. The ears have a rubbery feel to them, so they’re not just going to break off, like the plastic figurines do. He really does look like Yoda.
This particular Luke Sywalker figurine was only seen once, back in 2004. It looks much better than it looked 14 years ago. The torso print makes him stand out from the crowd, and the backpack contraption will allow him to carry Yoda. It is designed so that Yoda can hop on top of him.
The R2D2 figurine has an interesting look to him – I really like all of the dirt that they splashed around the figure and I believe it’s good to see a different design to him. R2D2 was certainly a nice addition to the set. If you pick the set up, you’ll see what I’m talking about.
They also included a red snake (the typical red snake) that can act like a little monster.
Putting the set together isn’t hard at all, which is probably why it’s recommended for ages 7-12. There’s a neat little launch pad feature, but it’s nothing like it shows on the back of the box because it’s hard for the figurine to get some leverage on it. He’s not going to fly though the air like the box shows, but he will launch just a tad bit.
All in all, if you have children between the ages of 7-12 that are into Star Wars, then I would highly recommend Lego Star Wars Yoda Hut. When this set is released, it will cost $30 in the United States – this price may vary depending on the country you’re in.
