When it comes to choosing a new character in order to build upon an exciting Star Wars collection, fans now have an even tougher choice on their hands because of the range of interesting new names in The Force Awakens. One of the most popular characters has to be Rey because not only is she one of the main heroes in this new trilogy, it is rare to have such a strong female figure to look up to in this universe.
Build this detailed LEGO Star Wars Rey kit for some exciting desert adventures
Rey is a unique character with strong traits and an individual style that the creators of this new film clearly spent a long time developing. It can be hard taking a strong screen presence like this and replicating all of these qualities in an action figure, but that is where the 2016 buildable LEGO Rey model shows its potential over the more basic toys. Firstly, there is the pose and the sense of action to the model that lets players take her straight from the desert sets of the movie and recreate her best scenes. Secondly, there is the attention to detail on the costume that would not be possible on smaller figures. Her outfit is made from real cloth, for a much more authentic look, and her head is molded with her desert hood and goggles, rather than the trademark hairstyle that other model creators might opt for.
This is clearly a Rey model that is both ready to fight and ready to hunt down valuable ship parts to sell at market. All she needs is a landspeeder and she can be off cruising the sands in search of her next adventure. With that in mind, it is also worth noting that this 23cm model comes with two different weapons to help her fend off any enemies that may be in pursuit and that the finished model is highly posable. The ability to adapt this articulated form into different poses means that it is much easier to become immersed in the story. One minute she can be sprinting in pursuit of Stormtroopers with her pistol and the next she can be poised to attack with her staff. Add to this the wheel-activated arm movement and this LEGO Rey becomes an action figure like no other. Choose your enemy from the new 2016 range, prepare your weapon and help the Resistance succeed.
