When I was a kid, I built model kits regularly. There was a time when you could walk into any Toys "R" Us, Walmart, Target, etc. and be greeted my massive aisles that were towering with hundreds, if not thousands of model kits waiting to be assembled and customized. Modern technology has helped shrink (and in some cases, eliminate) those aisles, and that's a shame... but it's swinging back. With so much focus on "building" and "making" these days, it's important to consider model kits as part of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Kids love building things, and the folks at Revell get that - and they embrace the "I made that!" sense of accomplishment that kids can have. They're bringing that into a galaxy far, far away with their new STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS model kits, and the first four are SnapTite Build & Play kits for kids as young as six. No glue. No paint. No tools. Pure fun. Take a look...

The Resistance X-Wing Fighter, Poe Dameron's X-Wing Fighter, the Millennium Falcon and The First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter are available now at Target and Toys "R" Us locations for just $19.99 each (don't over-pay what re-sellers are already charging), and these kits even feature lights and sounds with batteries included!

Five additional Star Wars SnapTite kits will be released in October for ages 8 and up. That will be followed in November with Revell's introduction of The Master Series™ consisting of three classic Star Wars paint and glue kits from Fine Molds™ for serious Star Wars model enthusiasts. The Master Series™ Fine Molds line will include 1:48 scale X-Wing™ fighter and Tie™ Fighter and 1:72 scale Millennium Falcon™ models with piece counts up to 900, providing the highest degree of detail of any model kit available.
