Review Lego Star Wars Droid Commander
We do not recommend this set if you only want an exhibition droid for your shelving with the rest of your droids, the entertainment is playing with them.
The packaging photo can result confusing. The 3 droids share the Move Hub. You can have all three droids built at once, though there’s only one hub to power and program one droid at a time. If you already know Lego Boost Creative Box this also happens.
You can purchase additional Power Hubs. Search for the number 88006 Move Hub. That way, you can have 3 fully functional Star Wars Droid Commanders.
