Happy Anniversary Lego® Star Wars!
This year, LEGO® celebrates 20 years of its affiliation with Star Wars.
In anticipation of this milestone, LEGO® has released five anniversary sets as well as a special anniversary logo.
LEGO® Star Wars, was the toy manufacturer’s first-ever licensed property. It released its first sets alongside Star Wars: The Phantom Menace‘s cinema debut in 1999.
Now, LEGO® has re-released five special edition sets, including the Imperial Dropship, Anakin’s Podracer, Clone Scout Walker, Snowspeeder and Slave I.
Each of the sets will bear the special anniversary logo.
A massive recreation of LEGO® Star Wars 20th Anniversary logo was built in brick to celebrate the milestone shown in a fantastic time-lapse video below.
LEGO® Star Wars 20th Anniversary sets are now on sale. More LEGO® news is expected to come out of Star Wars Celebration Chicago, which runs Thursday, April 11 through Monday, April 15. Check out some of the new sets below.
Each of the sets comes with a retro style Minifigure from 1999, with a brick built stand with the 20th-anniversary logo and characters name. The back of each of the torsos includes the anniversary logo too. All the stands will connect allowing you to showcase all the figures together.
The five Minifigures are Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot), Princess Leia, Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, and Darth Vader.
The largest of the five, Slave I 20th Anniversary Edition, comes with Zuckuss! Finally, we can complete the Bounty Hunters in Minifigure form after 20 years!

Don’t forget our very own Star Wars™ mini-build brick toys really unleash the Force!
We’ve taken (in our opinion) the best bits of the original trilogy and the new films to create a set of toys that you can build and fly around until the next movie comes out.
This set includes mini-builds of the Millennium Falcon, Poe Dameron’s X-Wing, a First Order Tie Fighter, a Star Destroyer and Boba Fett’s Slave 1.
All of our mini-builds are My Own Creations (MOCs) made with new, official LEGO® bricks.
