Many people use LEGO as a meditative practice. It can be highly relaxing to get away from the usual routine and build something brick by brick. The new Star Wars Darth Vader Meditation Chamber Lego Set 75296 takes the concept to another level. This set provides both a fun and relaxing building experience but also takes us to an interesting moment in the Star Wars trilogy.
This new Star Wars building set for adults is something a little more niche and cleverly thought out.
The evil leader of the Empire, Darth Vader, needed his own place to recharge in order to stay alive. But, as is often the case, work and obligations found their way in. In this new set, players get the chance to build this stylish chamber with a 360-degree design. There is an opening and closing door so Vader can step inside, a rotating seat, and a control panel. Here Vader can take care of business from the comfort of his chair, and this leads to an important and iconic moment with General Veers.
Veers is present in minfigure form, standing in the designated spot to communicate with Vader. But, there is also a LEGO depiction of Piett and Ozzel on the big screen. This is where Vader realises that he has been failed for the last time, leading to the demise of Ozzel. Of course, as this is a LEGO set for creative play, players could choose to kill Veers or use other figures from their collection for a completely new take on the story. The General does have a blaster pistol, so things could take a turn there.
The story and design make this an interesting alternative LEGO set for teenagers.
Whatever story you choose to come up with here, the finished model is sure to impress and provide a lot of inspiration. The finished chamber is 18cm high and 16 wide. This makes it the perfect size to play with next to related sets or to have on display on a shelf at work. It would certainly be a conversation starter on a desk when talking with clients or employees. The display element is enhanced through the use of the informative plate on the base. Overall, there are 663 pieces to put together - nothing too challenging but still a fun project. The Star Wars Darth Vader Meditation Chamber Lego Set 75296 is a true collectors' piece and one the avid fans are going to love.
