A great supporting set in the Cargo theme. This model includes a great variety of figures and pieces making it on overalls good set. It's also a good alternative for those who don't have the space or funds for the Cargo plane too.

This set very neat and an ideal one for racing fans. The colour scheme is brilliant and goes well in a number of city environments such as racing and busy streets.

The smallest galaxy squad set. The model includes two mini figures as well as small space capsule. This set is essential for all galaxy squad collectors and those who aren't sure whether they want to buy the sets of the theme or not.

An impressive model that includes many cool features such as an individual walker, a secret vehicle inside as well as a sleek design as well. The selection of figures also helps improve this set also.

A hugely impressive giant bug with a catapult function and lots of creepy features as well. Definately one to buy for a space battle with sets such as the vermin vapour user and the best set including the red team also.

A major improvement from the 2009 model and also slightly larger and rather reasonable in value also. However the main factor making this set worthwhile is the mango felt figure who hasn't appeared in lego Star Wars for some time.

A fun action packed set with lots of play features including push down elements and a duelling stick for Yoda. While the set is rather good, the figures are outstanding which alone make this set a worthwhile buy.

Despite the previous At-Te being released in 2008, this set is a big improvement on the set which features sturdier legs, more exciting features and a good array of figures.

Also the set is quite reasonably priced considering its only £10 more than the last one.

A set that has been in the making for some time. Though perhaps on the smaller side, this set includes some unique figures and some cool features throughout including a jail cell, keyboard for Max rebo and hidden cannon.

One of the most anticipated sets of 2013 and although like the At-Te its been five years since the last version, this one is significantly better. The model is much sturdier, there's more room for figures in the ship, there's lots of play features and its also a beautiful display set as well. The figures also greatly contribute to making this set perhaps the best 2013 Star Wars set.
