Revell has released an assortment of snap-together, interactive model kits inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, aimed at ages 6 and up. The first four kits consist of replicas of the Millennium Falcon, Poe’s X-Wing Fighter, the Resistance X-Wing Fighter, and the First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter.
Each model features moving parts such as retractable landing gear, open/close cockpit hatches, wings that open into attack mode, and lights and sounds. In addition, each kit has 15 to 20 pre-decorated parts requiring no glue, paint, or tools, and requires roughly 30 minutes to assemble. All Revell Star Wars models are designed with the same computer data used to create the movie props.
The initial four kits are available at both Target and Toys “R” Us stores, and five additional Star Wars SnapTite kits will be released in October, aimed at ages 8 and up. November will see the release of Revell’s The Master Series, consisting of three classic Star Wars paint and glue kits.
