Ladies and gentlemen, today we are trying something new on the blog: A LEGO Star Wars Piece Count Quiz. Many people use part to piece ratios to determine whether sets provide good value for money. AFOLs often claim that anything over 10 cents per piece is expensive and probably poor value for money. I believe piece count has little bearing on the quality of a LEGO set. It’s an arbitrary number. A set’s piece count doesn’t take into account the size of the LEGO bricks. For example, a 2×8 uses far more plastic than a 1×1 stud. Larger pieces also cost LEGO far more to produce.
I created a LEGO Star Wars Piece Count Quiz to demonstrate how price to piece ratios are a poor indicator of value. See if you can work out which sets use the most pieces. Could a £25 Advent Calendar have more pieces than a £35 Snowspeeder? Could the Star Wars Sith mosaic have more pieces than the UCS Death Star 2? Is it possible for the brick-built Yoda to have more pieces than the latest Tantive IV? Find out by taking the Piece Count Quiz: LEGO Star Wars Edition.
Top Tip: Answer C is only the correct answer for only two questions.
To create this game, I used the piece counts listed on Brickset. I believe these are extremely accurate but please forgive me if there are any inaccuracies.
