Darth Vader has certainly been getting around London recently, but he also managed a sneak up to Aberdeen for the Scottish Mum household.

Littlest was most happy with the lego minfigure on the front of the review box, and has been very patient waiting for the time that it could be opened and let him finally get his hands on the exclusive and collectible Darth Vader LEGO minifigure for his own Lego Collection.


It’s a 21-minute special feature with familiar territory and a completely new story for the LEGO Star Wars characters.

All the favourite characters are there and this story is actually good for us adults to watch too.  I’ve often found myself engrossed with the kids and some LEGO products.


Your favourite characters are back to save the galaxy in LEGO® Star Wars®: The Empire Strikes Out™. The heroes of the Rebel Alliance including heroic Luke Skywalker, swaggering Han Solo and steadfast Princess Leia have no time to celebrate their victory over the Empire as a new Imperial threat arises. But as Jedi-in training Luke embarks on this next mission, he discovers that his celebrity status as a “Death-Star-Blower-Upper” can be a double-edged lightsaber when he’s constantly mobbed by crazed fans. So much for secret missions! Meanwhile, Darth Vader and Darth Maul are locked in a hilarious “Sith-ling” rivalry as they compete for the Emperor’s approval. It’s an action-packed comic adventure that’s out of this world!

What did the kids think?

“Mental, it’s brill.”

“Can we watch it again at bedtime?”  (success any time)
