Some combinations just work. Like J.K. Simmons and father figure roles. Or the words “extra” and “crispy.” Or, of course, Legos and Star Wars. Yes, the beloved plastic bricks and the franchise are a match made in a galaxy far, far away. Who doesn’t want to snap together a Millennium Falcon, Wookie Gunship, or Imperial Assault Hovertank and recreate iconic Rebel missions — or lend a hand in the storylines of other action figures from the toy chest? And right now Amazon has serious markdowns on a number of great sets — including those mentioned above. Here are some of the best deals to seek out.
