Spring is going to be a busy for book-loving LEGO Star Wars fans with new titles to enjoy: LEGO Star Wars in 100 Scenes comes out this week and then comes the “Updated and Expanded” LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, both from DK Publishing.
LEGO Star Wars In 100 Scenes is 216 pages of action-packed Star Wars movie scenes recreated using hundreds of LEGO minifigs, playsets and vehicles. As the cover puts it: “Six Movies…A Lot of LEGO Bricks."
While similar to DK’s impressive Star Wars In 100 Scenes, the biggest difference (other than obviously here the pictures are LEGO) is this book is really funny!
Writer Daniel Lipkowitz also had a lot of fun making jokes in the bizarre world of LEGO Star Wars with The Yoda Chronicles (2013) and The DarkSide (2014). He continues with new wise-cracks and comments throughout this book.
The humour is just one part though - for every scene there’s trivia about the Star Wars universe and info about the LEGO pieces shown. Which Boba Fett is that? Why did they use that Padmé? How many different Landspeeders have appeared in LEGO sets? Learn these things, you will.
If you’ve read the DK Readers based on the existing six Star Wars movies, you may recognize some of the pictures in here but there’s plenty new to enjoy even if you already have those six books.
Recommended for readers 8-12 years, but younger LEGO lovers would enjoy it too!
