Dexter RoonaLEGO SetsLeave a Comment

Welcome to our best LEGO Star Wars sets to buy, buyers guide and checklist where we offer you our favorite building sets for all budgets.

Let’s get started!

We love everything to do with Star Wars here at AFG.

We love the Star Wars Funko Pops that you can buy, the Star Wars – Bad Batch Funko Pops are favorites of ours along with the Mandalorian Pops.

The release of the original Star Wars 3 1/4 inch figures heralded the start of action figure collecting.

Sure people collected toys and figures before Star Wars but it was Star Wars that really created a catalog of characters that were molded into action figures.

They were small and affordable every kid in town wanted them.

The release of all the Star Wars spacecraft that went with the figures made it really easy to recreate your favorite scenes from the Star Wars movies.

But Star Wars is not just about action figures.

One of the most popular LEGO ranges are the Star Wars LEGO sets and we also have some very cool LEGO Star Wars Brickheadz that we like.

In recent times as a result of the release of the new movies and Dosney+ shows, we have seen more and more LEGO Star Wars sets being produced.

There are pocket money-priced sets, sets that are great birthday and Christmas gifts, and sets for Star Wars and LEGO fans that are really geared towards adults who have money to spend.

We have selected our favorite sets below, the ones that we consider to be the best LEGO Star Wars sets to buy.
