Promise you won't judge me if I skip buying LEGO for my nieces and nephews this year and just pick a set up for myself? Because they just launched a building kit I can't wait to check out. It comes directly from the swamps of Dagobah, and this is no Force ghost. It's a 1,771-piece replica of Master Yoda himself!
Item no. 75255 is the latest addition to the LEGO Star Wars collection, and it might be one of my favourites yet. Once built, this masterpiece is practically life-size, since it stands at more than 41 cm tall. For reference, in the movies, Yoda measures in at 66 cm. And while this set won't come cheap, it's a MUST for any collector.
If you remember the BB-8 kit LEGO released a while back, this Yoda figure is incredibly similar and, they could be part of a series. Who knows? Maybe they'll keep things up and release an R2-D2 set one of these days!
This detailed Master Yoda figure is completely built of bricks and comes with a display stand, his green Lightsaber, a fact plaque and matching little Yoda minifigure. You can even move his head, eyebrows fingers and toes to help Yoda "move" or change his expression! It sells for $139.99 directly from LEGO Canada and will ship for free. If you want to save a few cents, though, Walmart has this set for $139.86 shipped.
