LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon (75105) Wins 2016 Toy of the Year Award

The 2016 New York Toy Fair is over and done and after that, there were also the Toy of the Year awards given out to the best toys from last year. Not surprisingly, LEGO was again in the running for some awards including winning the “Boy Toy of the Year” for the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon (75105) which was the best toy developed specifically for boys of any age. If you haven’t checked out my in-depth review of it, you can read it here.

LEGO was also nominated for “Game of the Year” with LEGO Dimensions but lost out to the popular party Pie Face Game. Note that LEGO Dimensions was the only non-tradional tabletop game in the category.

Finally, Star Wars won “Property of the Year” for the licensor with the greatest success spreading its brand or property throughout the industry while generating interest and excitement. Obviously LEGO had some impact with the brand winning with all of the various LEGO Star Wars sets we got last year, especially with The Force Awakens sets.

LEGO had been in the running for various Toy of the Year awards in every year since the awards have been given out in 2000 and I won’t be surprised if they make the list again next year.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon (75105) Review

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon (75105)

Last week on Force Friday, LEGO released the new LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets to the public. Let’s hit the set reviews off with a bang and do the biggest set in the wave first, the Millennium Falcon (75105). Everyone was excited when the Falcon showed up in the first teaser trailer and we knew it was coming back for Episode VII. Of course, LEGO had to update the 2011 (7965) version so it’ll correspond to the one in the upcoming movie. The new Millennium Falcon (75105) has 1329 pieces and retails for $149.99. There are ten numbered bags, one un-numbered bag of plates, and a bagged instruction booklet with sticker sheet. Be warned, there may be some speculation and minor spoilers in The Force Awakens LEGO set reviews.
