It cuts an imposing figure as it measures 40 centimeters (16 inches) in length and it comes with a TIE Pilot minifigure, a Mouse Droid figure and is mounted on a stand with a printed plaque. Builders will be able to relive their favorite action sequences with the distinctive wings of the Interceptor ship and a detailed cockpit.

This diorama includes 718 pieces and re-creates the scene of the iconic podracing sequence from The Phantom Menace. This definitely sounds like a set that's ideal for fans of the prequel trilogy.

If you want to venture to the Dark Side, maybe the 680-piece buildable set of Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator ship could tempt you. This set enables you to fold out the wings and retract the landing gear for flight. It also features two spring-loaded shooters and DRK-1 droids which you can trigger to drop from the front compartment.

The dimensions for this set are over 3 inches (7 centimeters) high, 11 inches (27 centimeters) long and 7.5 inches (20 centimeters) wide. It's  available from May 1 (but available to pre-order) this set will retail for $69.99.

In recent years, we've seen an influx in Star Wars TV shows and it can be argued that The Mandalorian is the most notable series to hit the small screen. So, if you are gaga for Grogu or you're just a fan of Mando and his adventures then perhaps this 221-piece set is for you.

This speeder set is suitable for those aged eight and above and comes with minifigures of Grogu, Kelleran Beq and two Clone Troopers.
