Lego Star Wars
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lego Star Wars is a Lego theme that incorporates the Star Wars saga. The first Lego Star Wars, released in 1999, included model 7140, the first Lego X-Wing. Star Wars was the first intellectual property to be licensed in Lego Group history. The first few sets based on the original trilogy were released in 1999, coinciding with the release of The Phantom Menace. Sets based on the prequel trilogy (Episodes I to III) of Star Wars would follow, starting with Episode I. As each new film in the prequel trilogy neared its release date, Lego issued new models of ships and scenes in those films, as well as additional sets from the original trilogy. Originally it was only licensed from 1999--2008, but the Lego Group recently extended the license with Lucasfilm Ltd. to 2011. However this is subject to change. The brand has spawned three major video game releases, developed by Traveller's Tales. Lego has produced models which coincided with The Clone Wars, which was released early in 2009.
Three video games based on the Lego Star Wars sets and the Star Wars films have been released—Lego Star Wars: The Video Game (2005), Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (2006), and Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga (2007) and the recently announced Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars coming in 2011.
In August 2009, to celebrate 10 years of LEGO Star Wars, Lego released the computer-animated comedy short film Lego Star Wars: The Quest for R2-D2, directed by Peder Pedersen.

Ultimate Collector Series
In addition to the regular minifigure-scale sets, Lego has released a smaller number for the Ultimate Collector Series (UCS). These models are considerably larger and more detailed and are meant for display purposes, and as such, cost more than regular Lego sets. Included in each one is a collector's card and, in many cases, a display stand. On October 1, 2007, the Lego Group released a UCS version of the Millennium Falcon, complete with 5 minifigures. At 5195 pieces, it is the largest Lego Star Wars set ever released; and the second largest set of any collection ever commercially released. For the list check the link above.
