For example, no list would be complete without the Millenium Falcon or Imperial Star Destroyer. However, these are extremely expensive and very hard to come by, so we went looking for sets like Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter (that’s regularly on backorder) and Kylo Ren’s Shuttle, which was chosen purely on looks and rarity. In short, our list has something for everyone!
