(Pocket-lint) - You may remember that earlier in the year Lego announced this epic Lego Boost set where you can build some of the galaxy's most iconic droids, R2-D2, the Gonk droid and the mouse droid (yes you can build all three at the same time).

Now it has released this excellent video to celebrate the release of the Boost droid set. And it features 95 of the Boost droids in a rather unique performance. 

It's the first time Lego's Boost drag-and-drop coding has been used for a licensed set and follows other STEM orientated Star Wars kits such as the LittleBits Droid Inventor Kit

The Lego Star Wars Boost Droid Commander set is being launched to mark the closing of the Skywalker saga with the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in December.

The set includes a colour and distance sensor, interactive motor, Bluetooth Move Hub and 1,177 pieces - you'll also need the free Lego Boost Star Wars app which is available for Android, iOS and Amazon Fire tablets.

You'll just need to put the Move Hub into the droid you want to control. With R2-D2, for example, you can plot a course, receive and decode messages and help fly an X-Wing among other functions. There are over 40 missions in all.
