LEGO Star Wars Releases 20th Anniversary Editions

LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary

The past 20 years have seen some epic construction kits for Star Wars and LEGO fans. LEGO was undoubtedly inspired by the Star Wars franchise, as it would be this collective edition that would see a lot of record-breaking moments for their much loved construction kits.

Minifigure collectors likely had hearts in their eyes when they saw the very first LEGO figure to not have the iconic rounded head, when it was released in February 1999 as part of the brand new LEGO Star Wars collection.

Jar Jar Binks has the distinction of being the very first unique LEGO head sculpt.

Quite a few of the largest consumer builds available on the market are part of the Star Wars franchise, including the Sandcrawler, two versions of the Death Star, and the Millenium Falcon.

Remake every scene on the Death Star with the 24 Minifigures and Droids included with the 10188 LEGO Death Star Set.

I'm absolutely giggling that there is a half-built Marvel Captain America shield in the first time-lapsed shot for the 20th Anniversary Logo build.

The First Star Wars LEGO Sets from 1999

There were 9 LEGO Star Wars Sets to start off the wild 20 year journery, back in 1999, including:

Ultimate Collector Series X-Wing Fighter

LEGO Ultimate Collector Series of the X-Wing from 1999
I imagine fans flat out begged for LEGO to take their money the moment they saw the iconic X-Wing in the sleek Collectors box.

LEGO System Anakin's Podracer

Anakin's Podracer was an inspirational design.

The first 20 Years of LEGO Star Wars has been a wild ride. Check it out!

Possibly my favourite out of the sets is the LEGO Star Wars Slave I - everything is awesome in the set, from the Boba Fett minifigure and Slave I starship, to the collector's edition Princess Leia, and the carbonite box of Han Solo! This construction kit is full of awesome.
