BOOST Droid Commander – Boost Meets LEGO Star Wars

What better way to celebrate Star Wars Day than with a LEGO Star Wars announcement completely out of left field – Boost Droid Commander.

This $359.99 set includes three boost components – a color & distance sensor, interactive motor and Move Hub – as well as 1177 pieces. Those LEGO pieces are used to construct three Droid models. There is of course R2-D2, a Mouse Droid and a Gonk Droid.

You will be able to build all three models at the same time but you will only be able to use the Boost components in one model at a time. If you already have the boost set then you may be able to use this to have two droids.

To accompany the set LEGO will be releasing a new dedicated LEGO Star Wars Boost app. The app will feature a range of missions you can program for your droid, as well as official sounds.

Overall I think the models look really good and it’s interesting to see Boost added to a licensed theme for the first time. At $359.99 this isn’t cheap but if you’ve been on the fence about Boost you may find this more interesting than the standard Boost set.
