Harking back to the heydey of children’s literature – the Eighties – when kids grew up not knowing where the latest read in their favourite book series would take them, DK is embarking on a path where the reader gets to choose their own Star Wars adventure.
LEGO Star Wars Choose Your Path
Read the page, then decide where to go next by selecting one of two options on every page. Do you want to travel around Jakku by speedy quadjumper or by four-legged luggabeast? Will you choose to join the rebels over Scarif, or to fly after the Inquisitor? On Mustafar, do you dare to battle Anakin or will you join him on the dark side of the Force?!
Navigate the book and learn all about key LEGO Star Wars characters, creatures, vehicles and locations. Every page is packed full of facts, stats and stunning photographs of LEGO Star Wars sets and minifigures. Once you reach an ending, go back and see where the paths will take you next time!
LEGO Star Wars Choose Your Path comes with a cool LEGO Star Wars minifigure to join you on your adventures through the galaxy.
The expected release date is 5 June 2018 and will come with a minifigure that will be revealed in March. Internet scuttlebutt points to it being the U-3PO minifig that came with the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar in 2016. No doubt DK will confirm this in due course.
In a tradition dating back to 1969, but perhaps more memorably in 1980’s LEGOLAND Idea Book, LEGO has been printing compendiums of awesome builds that don’t require instructions but do need a touch of know-how. DK has taken up the challenge and produced their first LEGO Star Wars version, adding to their already extensive LEGO Ideas Book range.
LEGO Star Wars Ideas Book
LEGO Star Wars Ideas Book features imaginative play and building ideas using your own LEGO brick collection, from LEGO projects that take just a few minutes, to builds to keep you occupied for hours. Set up a game of LEGO Star Wars skittles, create a pencil pot shaped like your favourite Sith or Jedi, build a fleet of tiny TIEs, design Darth Vader’s family tree, and customise a podracer. Challenge a friend to take on a rathtar, mix up your minifigures, stage your favourite movie battle scene with LEGO Star Wars bricks – and much, much more!
LEGO Star Wars Ideas Book is packed with a family friendly range of activities to inspire every LEGO Star Wars fan. What will you build?
The expected release date for this book is 6 September 2018, and it won’t come with any bricks – but you can grab some boxes of Classic bricks to improve your loose bricks selection.
Stay tuned to The Holo-Brick Archive for reviews when these two titles get released.
