LEGO Announces Twentieth Anniversary Star Wars Sets
Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 at 7:35am by Andrew, BZPower News Manager
In 1999, BZPower didn't even exist yet, and Bionicle was still being planned secretly in Denmark. The thing that had everyone excited was that a new Star Wars movie was coming out, and that LEGO for the first time had made a deal with an entertainment property to bring the galaxy far, far away into the homes of LEGO fans around the world. Twenty years later, LEGO Star Wars is still going strong, and to celebrate, Twentieth Anniversary sets with exclusive retro minifigures are being released later this year. To get a glimpse at the first images and details, read on!

It's another exciting day in the life of a bounty hunter!
I'll be honest - the thing I am most excited about here is that we're finally getting a Zuckuss minifig. Most of the sets aren't anything that excite me or that I feel like I immediately need to buy. I love the idea of the retro minifigures, and am tempted to try to collect them, but we'll have to see if I can justify picking up the sets just for the figs. How do you feel about these sets? Are there any must-haves for your collection? Let us know in the Talkback!
