One of the new DK books that will coming out this week is the LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path that I’ve reported on a few months back. The style of the book is similar to the classic Choose Your Own Adventure books where you assume the role of a character, in this case U-3PO, and you make choices to determine the story’s outcome. LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path has 128 pages and retails for $19.99 and it releases on June 5.
As with a majority of DK books, there usually is an exclusive LEGO minifigure included but for this one, it isn’t an exclusive. With the book, we get U-3PO which was previously found in the 2016 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75146). Unless I missed something, it is the exact minifigure and is basically a color swap of most recent version of C-3PO.
As I mentioned before, LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path is a story based book where you choose your way of how the story goes. There are three starting points to choose from, “Hunt the Sith,” “Fight the Empire,” or “Defeat the First Order.” For each page, it gives a short story in which you’ll have to find a way to continue the story by picking one of two ways and keep going until you find a good ending or it tells you to try again. There are more than 40 endings that you’ll be able to find.
The pages also showcase an actual LEGO set that has been previously released and it includes a short data file on the vehicle or a location.
Overall, the LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path is a pretty fun book that kids would enjoy. There’s lots of reading to be had since there are a number of different endings to find on top of the facts that are also thrown in.
The U-3PO LEGO minifigure is a bonus if you missed out on the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar from a few years ago but it isn’t the main draw for this particular book.
Thank you to DK for sending in this book for me to review. The content above represents my own opinion and not the company. Review sets sent in does not guarantee a positive review.
