Yesterday I attended a press preview of LEGO’s Droid Tales season finale held at the Manhattan LEGO store and also got to see all the new Star Wars LEGO sets plus some wonderful large LEGO builds by Master builders. Great fun. Here’s my report.
I have not been watching the Star Wars Droid Tales but I enjoyed the series finale which airs on Monday, November 2nd. Entitled “Gambit on Genosisseries” the episode had humor that the adults can enjoy too. It wasn’t just for the kids. Comments like “You’ll never make me go to the dark side” and “Now I have to go live with my parents” and my favorite “May the Funk be with you” will make the adults smile too. I always enjoy a children’s show that isn’t torture for me to sit through and Droid Tales fits that bill.
LEGO already has many Star Wars themed sets, but there are a bunch of new ones associated with the new movie – Star Wars: The Force Awakens coming out in December. Here are a couple of the new sets:

If you are buying a Star Wars set for a holiday gift you will want to know if it is based on the new movie. Here is the secret key. Look for this red and gold symbol at the top of the package – this is The Force Awakens series.
I enjoyed the large LEGO characters built by Master LEGO Builders too. This one in the front of the store you will only find here in New York:
|Statue of Liberty Torch - See people walking outside to get a sense of the size|
The press area had a bunch of ones on display and I’m sorry that I didn’t take more pictures but here are two of my favorites:
