While you may mess up a critical plot point of an epic franchise, you can pick up this droid littleBits set and make your own R2 unit the way you want. These sets are basically like if LEGO and K’nex had a baby and added a battery. A bunch of you bought these around the holidays, but today’s price is within $2 of the…
One of the most visually-appealing parts of The Last Jedi was the Battle of Crait. The bright white salt, the blood red soil, coming together to emphasize the clash of good and evil.

LEGO’s 1969 piece Saturn V Apollo kit is usually out of stock at major retailers, but Amazon has it for its $120 MSRP right now, which is honestly a great price for a kit that size, let alone such a coveted one.
