The Best Star Wars Lego Sets
For no other reason than Supreme Leader Kylo Ren is a bit of a show-off, the First Order always had to have its very own version of things, even if there were perfectly good AT-AT walkers leftover from the last time an intergalactic war broke out. The 1,376-piece Heavy Assault Walker Lego Kit has all the pieces necessary to recreate this walking war machine, as pictured for the first time in The Last Jedi. Not only does it come with 5 different mini-figures, but also a working rapid-fire stud shooter and troop compartments that open up for all kinds of surprise attacks.
When we are first introduced to the fearsome Sith Warrior Kylo Ren, it is as he is departing from his black shuttle with folding wings and that cool retractable ramp. Now, this awesome looking space shuttle vehicle is available in Lego form in all of the same jet-black glory … a style that would have made Darth Vader proud. Whether your kid uses this shuttle and the included minifigures to act out their favorite scenes from The Rise of Skywalker or any other Star Wars movie, this 1,005-piece building kit is a great way to help them along the way, or to simply add some cool unique pieces to an existing LEGO collection.
Kylo Ren, the fearsome leader of the First Order from the most recent Star Wars trilogy of movies, is so powerful that they are not going to just give him any old tie fighter. Instead, Kylo flies around in one of the most advanced snub-fighters there is, complete with an awesome hyperdrive engine and vicious proton torpedoes (that really fire!) The included minifigures display Kylo himself, alongside an Imperial Tie Pilot (for designated driving purposes) and a First Order Storm Trooper (for backup against the Rebel forces). The proton torpedoes fire trigger-loaded plastic missiles at the target with the flick of a switch.
It doesn’t always have to be big in size to provide big fun, as is the case with the Millennium Falcon Microfighter. This simple Lego building kit has only 92 pieces, which means that it can be snapped together in an afternoon and ready for intergalactic flight. Not only do the pieces come together to create a mini recreation of the fastest ship in the Galaxy, but it also comes with a Chewbacca minifigure that Lego and Star Wars collectors alike will be eager to get their hands on. There is even a little seat for Chewie in the cockpit!
One of Lego’s newest series of Lego Star Wars toys is these statue-like structures that depict some of our favorite Star Wars characters. This LEGO Porg statuette shows the cute little creature from The Last Jedi in all his adorable glory, complete with flapping wings, an opening mouth, and a pair of big puppy-dog eyes that are just begging to know what’s going on. This kit comes with 811 pieces as well as a commemorative informational plaque that will look great on the display shelf. There is also a more traditionally sized Porg minifigure, which can either hang out on the display card or join your kid’s other figurines for any number of adventures.
STEM Toys and Star Wars go hand in hand with the R2-D2 coding robot kit. Like a lot of other coding bot sets that have hit the market lately, this one lets kids design one of a number of different programmable robots that can execute different commands , as programmed by your child. Kits like these are great for developing computer skills, and because they utilize the LEGO BOOST app, they also teach about specific concepts related to computer programming, giving your kid a leg up into the future. This kit features 40 different ‘missions’ for your young droid builder to complete, making for hours and hours of STEM-based fun.
In Star Wars lore, the Y-Wing fighter was one of the most heavy-hitting member of the squad, carrying multiple photon bombs that were capable of taking out enemy defenses and installations. After the fall of the Empire, the Y-Wing fighter remained an important factor in the fight against evil, falling to the hands of resistance forces lie Zorii Bliss and the famous Poe Dameron. This Lego Resistance Y-Wing Fighter has 578 pieces, so it is somewhere in-between a moderate and complicated kit … but it is sure to provide hours of entertaining construction fun, not to mention the possible years and years of stylish display.
One thing that every Star Wars movie seems to have plenty of is giant walking war robots, also known as ‘walkers’. These fearsome armored fighting units are capable of taking on entire battalions of troops all on their own, utilizing heavy firepower at every opportunity that arises. This AT-PT walker comes with a swiveling turret that can be aimed at any Rebel Scum in sight, then, with the flick of the trigger, the plastic missile will go flying across the battlefield. This is a Lego kit that utilizes not only a lot of classic Lego pieces, but also more than a few exclusive bricks that can’t be found anywhere else.
Whether you know it as the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs or simply as the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon is one starship that everyone should know off the top of their heads. This massive 1,351-piece building kit comes with everything required to make a faithful replica of this iconic rebel cruiser. Also included is a collection of exclusive Star Wars-themed minifigures, including some familiar faces from The Rise of Skywalker, the most recent installment in the saga where the Millennium Falcon once again plays front and center.
While the Y-Wing Starfighter can be seen in a bunch of different Star Wars movies and TV shows, it was perhaps never more skillfully utilized than during the battles that were depicted over the course of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This Lego kit comes with all of the 691 pieces needed to recreate this heavy-duty bomber, alongside a number of Lego minifigures that you aren’t going to find anywhere else, specifically the Rebel Astromech minifigure that rides as co-pilot.

With the release of an entirely new generation of Star Wars films, TV shows, and comic book story-lines, it might be no surprise that not all kids know what the Slave 1 is. In fact, even a lot of die-hard Star Wars fans might not be immediately familiar with Boba Fett’s famous bounty-hunting star ship. This 20th Anniversary Edition comes with a slight redesign that allows for greater detail and a more faithful recreation of this cool ship. The minifigures included are Boba Fett, Han Solo, Zuckuss, 4-LOM, and an exclusive 20th Anniversary Princess Leia. At 1,007 pieces, this is a great intermediate kit or a killer collector’s item.

Remember that space ship that you see in the very first few moments of the original Star Wars? You know, the one that was running away from the evil Empire? Yeah, that was the Tantive IV, and since then it has become a fan-favorite starship, serving as Princess Leia’s diplomatic cruiser vehicle.

In The Mandalorian, one of the newest TV Star Wars adventures to be released by Disney, the heroes find themselves in some pretty deep walker when they find out that the local band of raiders has a secret weapon up their sleeve in the form of a fearsome armored AT-ST walker, most likely a leftover from the Galactic Civil War. The custom-painted legs and exclusive building bricks that come with this set are just the beginning: it also features never-before-seen Star Wars minifigures including Cara Dune and The Mandalorian himself! 540 pieces in all means that there is a good challenge to be had, but not one that will take more than an afternoon or two for an experienced Lego builder.
When we first meet the Jedi Master Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back, he is sequestered away on the jungle planet of Dagobah, a place that is full of mystery, mud, and also one of the coolest Jedi man-caves in the galaxy.

With 229 pieces, this cool little Lego kit is a must-have for any Yoda fan, especially considering the exclusive Yoda minifigure that can’t be found anywhere but in this set.
If you had no idea that the 900-soomething year old Master Yoda even had a Starfighter, then you are not alone, but that doesn’t mean that your kid wont enjoy all the exciting designs, moving parts, and minifigures that come included in this 262-piece set. The Starfighter features a working missile port that will fire off proton torpedoes at the bad guys, while a helpful R2-D2 is along for the ride in his very one top-mounted astromech seat. The Yoda minifigure even comes with his own lightsaber, allowing him to fight just as well outside of the cockpit as inside.
