We’re usually more about the blog recs on Sunday, but Volkswagen’s Game Day commercial preview definitely caught our eye! If you haven’t already seen it, you’ve gotta check this one out:
We’ve got a huge number of Star Wars Lego playsets and battle packs in-stock and ready to go, perfect for the Jedi in your life as the holidays approach. The Lego sets have been bolstered by the success of the Lego Star Wars video games, but have enjoyed a strong following in their own right, with both SW and Lego enthusiasts getting their hands on them–sometimes to create some pretty impressive displays.
The collection includes over 25 different sets that you can collect and build, but here’s a look at four hand-picked items from our Star Wars Lego section!
As the Clone Wars rage across the galaxy, the Republic army advances across the battlefields of hundreds of planets. Build up your army with the Clone Walker™, a tough 2-man vehicle with poseable legs and flick-firing missiles!

* Build your army and add #8015 Assassin Droids™ Battle Pack for even more fun!
* Measures over 3.5″ (8cm) tall!
REBEL TROOPER ARMY PACK
Build up your Rebel forces and celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back!When the Empire attacks the hidden Rebel base on the ice planet Hoth, brave Rebel troopers and pilots fight back with their combat speeder with flick-firing missiles.

HYENA DROID BOMBER
Switching between walker, bomber and attack modes, the Hyena Droid is a powerful multi-purpose weapon for the Separatists as seen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Features four dropping bombs and three all-new rocket battle droid minifigures.
* Pivot the wings for flying and walking positions!
* Includes 3 new droid minifigures with special jet packs!

V-19 TORRENT STARFIGHTER
Battle the Separatist armies in space with the powerful V-19 Torrent starfighter, blasting straight out of the Clone Wars! Wings and landing gear move together automatically to switch between landing and flying modes. Authentically detailed with features including an opening cockpit, flick-firing missiles, and a new clone trooper pilot figure! Includes Clone Pilot minifigure! Launch the flick-fire missiles and open the sliding cockpit! Wings fold down and landing gear fold up to go from landing mode to flying mode! V-19 Torrent has a 21’½” (55cm) wingspan! Measures 9″ (23cm) long and 9’½” (24cm) high!
The AT-AT, or Imperial All Terrain Armored Transport, stands over TWO FEET TALL, in perfect scale with the 3.75-inch Star Wars figures to offer the massive, imposing presence that marked its appearances in the Star Wars Universe–most prominently in the Battle of Hoth.
This figure itself comes with a Speeder Bike figure, as well as an AT-AT Driver and can lower and retract a rappelling line from its underside. More than that, though, it boasts “light-up reciprocating chin guns, a light-up command section, battle and vehicle sounds and firing side-mounted blasters to bring the excitement of the intergalactic saga straight to your living room!” And what’s more, you can fit a whopping 19 figures in the AT-AT body, meaning that, on top of a toy, it might make for some pretty decent themed storage space!
The Star Wars Snow Trooper Army Pack is the latest addition to our growing LEGO collection and probably the coolest–at least in terms of temperature. (sorry) The frigid terrain is no match for the cruel determination of the Empire and so its soldiers have been outfitted in cold-resistant outfits and take to the wastes for battle!
Released to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Empire Strikes Back, the LEGO set includes a battle station, an Imperial Speeder Bike, 2 Snowtroopers, an AT-AT Driver and an Imperial Officer!
* Battle station armed with rotating flick missile firing gun!
* Speeder bike measures over 5″ (12cm) long!
* Battle Station measures over 3″ (10cm) long!
