Revell’s Build and Play Star Wars kits

Revell released details on their first wave of new Star Wars kits today.   These four kits are described as “build and play” kits.  They are easy snap models, prepainted, with lights and sound effects.  These are “Level 1” kits, designed for young kids.    There will be additional, more detailed models coming later.  No scales are listed.  At this time, the kits are not listed with hobby distributors, but are supposed to be available at Toys R Us and Target.    Word of mouth says they are “pretty nice” kits for what they are.   Photos courtesy of the Revell website
