Pay no more than £25 for this great little kit. Based on Star Wars 'A New Hope'. The landspeeder model is robust to play with, even in quite young hands - our junior is just 5 years. It has a secret place under the rear engine, to hide small things (Or take the engine off altogether, put your droids in the back and take them for a ride across the desert wastes of the kitchen floor). This model is so much better than some ready made lumps of plastic that Ive seen in the shops and if you get bored with it, you can take it apart and use the bricks for anything you like.
What is really great about this kit is that you get all the main characters for Star Wars with it - yippee! (Kids love the mini guys)- Without spending a fortune. Luke, Obi-Wan, R2 D2, CP30, Han and Leia, plus a stormtrooper and a spy droid, Oh and 2 light sabres for your Jedi's (minifigures cost out at about £1.99 each).
I think it is a great starter kit for a Star Wars fan. The recommended building age is 7-12; our junior (5 years) helped with the build - but couldnt have built it by himself, so we did this as a shared activity.
And now ... you can add 2 more sandtroopers + an escape pod for CP3O & R2 D2, with the new 'Droid escape kit' for rrp £19.99, to extend your 'New Hope' adventures).
