Lego's Star Wars Boost Droid Commander set comes with 1,177 pieces to let you (or your little Resistance of First Order trainees) build three different droids from the "Star Wars" universe: the iconic R2-D2, a Gonk Droid and a small Mouse Droid. The models combine with a motor, color sensor, distance sensor, Bluetooth hub and  Lego's Boost coding app to let you control one of the three robots at any given time.

You can build all three robots out of the box, but only drive one of them at a time.
