15 Amazing LEGO Star Wars Sets You Can Buy Right Now

LEGO

In the late 1990s, LEGO made a decision that would change the fortunes of the company. After years of resisting the idea of producing LEGO merchandise based on licensed characters, LEGO agreed to its first-ever licensing deal, partnering with Lucasfilm in 1998 to issue Star Wars sets. The response was so enthusiastic that LEGO soon sought out arrangements with Disney, Marvel, Harry Potter, and other properties, too. Sales skyrocketed, and LEGO reestablished itself as a cultural phenomenon.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of those first sets released in 1999, LEGO is re-issuing a number of its classic Star Wars creations from that era. Each of these anniversary sets come wrapped in retro packaging and include a replica of one of the original Star Wars minifigures that debuted at the turn of the millennium.

The commemorative sets join a vast library of collectible Star Wars-themed releases from the past two decades, many of which have only increased in value over the years since they were first released. The company is also offering several new sets based on the November launch of the Disney + television series The Mandalorian and the December theatrical release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Here’s a sampling of the best LEGO Star Wars sets you can buy right now to satisfy your itch for a trip to a galaxy far, far away.

Be honest: You’ve watched a YouTube video or two in an attempt to learn how to play a song on the guitar. Whether it was through tabs or simply copying whatever you saw on the screen, the fun always ends when friends start throwing out requests for songs you have no idea how to play. So how about you actually learn how to play guitar for real this time?

It’s now possible to learn guitar from home with the Ultimate Beginner to Expert Guitar Lessons Bundle, which is currently on sale for $29. Grab that Gibson, Fender, or whatever you have handy, and learn to strum rhythms from scratch.

The strumming course will teach you how to count beats and rests to turn your hands and fingers into the perfect accompaniment for your own voice or other musicians. Then, you can take things a step further and learn advanced jamming and soloing to riff anytime, anywhere. This course will teach you to improvise across various chords and progressions so you can jump into any jam with something original. You’ll also have the chance to dive deep into the major guitar genres of bluegrass, blues, and jazz. Lessons in jam etiquette, genre history, and how to read music will separate you from a novice player.

This bundle also includes courses in ear training so you can properly identify any relative note, interval, or pitch. That way, you can play along with any song when it comes on, or even understand how to modify it into the key you’d prefer. And when the time comes to perform, be prepared with skilled hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, bends, trills, vibrato, and fret-tapping. Not only will you learn the basic foundations of guitar, you’ll ultimately be able to develop your own style with the help of these lessons.

The Ultimate Beginner to Expert Guitar Lessons Bundle is discounted for a limited time. Act on this $29 offer now to work on those fingertip calluses and play like a pro.
