LEGO has got some new sets available and Star Wars Darth Vader’s Meditation Chamber is one of them. The set is $69.99 and will ship starting August 1. Other new Star Wars sets are Darth Vader’s Helmet and the Imperial Probe Droid. Being a person who loves robots and droids, I’m more interested in the probe droid than Vader’s helmet. Although, the droid would probably be distracting if near my desk. I wouldn’t be able to resist playing with it and with the description of the meditation chamber, this one would be hard to resist too.
At the LEGO site their description is:
‘You have failed me for the last time, Admiral…’ Relive a dramatic scene from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back as you build the first-ever LEGO® brick model of the Darth Vader Meditation Chamber (75296). Kick back and enjoy some quality time immersed in the rewarding building process and recreate lots of authentic details. The chamber opens and closes just like the real thing and features a big screen, control panels, a rotating seat for Darth Vader and a place for General Veers to stand opposite him.
I don’t play with LEGO like I did as a kid, unless I’m playing with my son, but who doesn’t love the villain’s rotating chair? It’s been in movies, tv shows, and cartoons. Many have even done parodies of the swiveling chair. The janitor from Scrubs enjoyed the slow, villainous turn with his invisible half-kitten half-monkey, Leonard, once on Dr. Cox.
What’s in the set
There are 663 pieces in the Meditation Chamber and LEGO has set the age for 18+, but I think my 7-year-old could put this together. It comes with Darth Vader, of course, along with General Veers. Finally, the set includes the LEGO brick separator tool for your oh shit I effed up moments during your build.
