This is a bit of a LEGO Star Wars bargain (and no it's not an April Fool, I promise!): if you get yourself over to Tesco Direct, you'll be able to bag yourself a LEGO Star Wars Anakin and Sebulba's Podracer set for £48.60 (enter code TD-JKXW at the checkout to drop the price down to £48.60) - it's £81.99 over at Amazon.
I'm a bit of a Star Wars purist I'm afraid. Whilst I enjoyed the last three movies, they don't have the same magic, for me, that the original three had (have!). However, I still find the scene of the Boonta Eve Classic Podrace absolutely thrilling.
I'm also a bit of a LEGO Star Wars fan and will be most upset when Edward, my youngest son, grows out of it - I'll have to find some other young Padowan who needs a hand putting LEGO Star Wars models together - but for now, LEGO Star Wars anything is still right up there on his present wishlist (along with Skylanders).
As well as the building joy of putting your Podracers together, you can extend the buzz saws on Sebulba’s Podracer and spin its massive motors. There are handles to fly your pods through the air, or you can display them on their bases. If that's not enough for you, you'll also get Obi-Wan Kenobi, Wald and Watto minifigures.
You can arrange to collect your Anakin and Sebulba's Pod Racers from the Tesco store of your choice; OR you can pay an additional £3 and have them deliver it to you, so you can stay wrapped up and warm indoors.
