Slicing plastic robots into tumbling bricks as a miniature and rather angular Obi-Wan Kenobi plugs into that "pure fun" part of our brain in the same way that building forts out of couch cushions used to. Lego Star Wars drew out that imaginative joy with ease, and now we get to do it all over again ... but with the original trilogy of Star Wars movies.
Fun as it was, there were some things missing from the original Lego Star Wars. Screaming across the deserts of Tatooine in a souped-up land speeder or barrel-rolling an X-wing through the steel trenches of the Death Star were not on the agenda, but this time you'll get to do those things and more. Expanded vehicular options will allow you to play with the ships you build. And once you've collected all the pieces of a mini-kit (collections of Lego blocks that form a recognizable vehicle), you can tool around in your newly unlocked craft.
