Whether the kid you are shopping for is a Lego-fanatic or Star Wars mega-fan, this is a list of toys that is sure to please in both this galaxy and the next.
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. The real opening cockpit means that any Lego person can take this thing for a joy ride!
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.
There is nothing that keeps a kid in the holiday spirit better than a good, old-fashioned advent calendar. For the young Star Wars fan in your life, this Star Wars Advent Calendar is an even better option, as it comes with 24 different buildable minifigures, ranging from familiar characters like Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca to lesser known characters like the Mynock and the Gonk droid. For every day in December leading up to Christmas Day, your kid will have the pleasure of opening another door on the advent calendar to reveal the next minifigure in the series, 24 in all!
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. This 1,768-piece building kit is great for kids who are 12 and above, but any kid who has a bit of Lego building experience under their belt will enjoy it just fine, even if they are a bit younger. The included minifigures are Bail Organa, Princess Leia, Captain Antilles, C-3PO, and a Rebel Fleet Trooper.
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. Yoda’s Hut is not only where the little green master likes to cool his jets after a long day of floating rocks in the air, but it is also where he teaches Luke Skywalker everything about the Force. 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.
While we never get to learn much about the mysterious desert-dwelling people known as the Jawas, it seems that we will never forget the big lumbering vehicle that they liked to drive around in, most memorably pictured in Star Wars: A New Hope, the first movie to be released to the world. This LEGO Sandcrawler is a fully-functional base of operations for any Jawa tribe, complete with removable panels, a lowering ramp, and a prison chamber where you can stash any troublemakers. With 1,239 pieces this one will likely take more than an afternoon, but once it is fully completed it will look great on any display shelf.
Before he was known as Darth Vader, the Jedi Anakin Skywalker was one of the best pilots in the galaxy, and he made sure everyone knew it with the stunts he pulled in his very own Jedi Starfighter. Designed to enhance the abilities of a Jedi’s natural force powers, these swift and deadly fighters were one of the most effective tools in the Clone Wars. Now, 247 pieces of Lego plastic can come together to recreate it in its entirety, along with both an Anakin Skywalker and an R2-D2 minifigure. Super-cool extras include real firing missiles, an opening cockpit, and retractable landing gear.
Here is a more advanced Lego kit that is great for either the experienced Lego collector or the avid Star Wars fan. With 1,771 pieces, his is a larger kit that will keep kids busy for a more extended period of time, as they try to build a statue of everyone’s favorite Jedi master, brick-by-brick! This Yoda Statue also has a few other tricks up his robe, including a posable head and eyebrows, along with an informational display plaque that would make this model really stand out in an existing Lego collection. He even has movable fingers and toes!
This nearly life-sized BB-8 building kit comes with 1,106 Lego Pieces that can come together to create a statue of the famous BB-8, one of the cutest droids to come out of the newest Star Wars movies. Just like the Yoda & Porg Lego Statues from the same series, this 9-inch tall statue has more than just a few tricks up its sleeve (do droids have sleeves?) including a rotating head, an opening hatch, and a non-functioning welding torch just like he has in the movies. As with the other models in this series, BB-8 comes with a display plaque that will tell passersby more about this irresistible little droid.
One of the most memorable set pieces in the whole Star Wars saga is the Cloud City of Bespin, which is also where some of the nastiest scheming and double-crossing takes place. This massive 2,812-piece playset has a lot going on with it, creating a circular representation of the city’s most iconic spaces, from the Slave 1 landing dock where Han Solo was handed over to Boba Fett, or the narrow walkway where Vader delivered his now-famous line about being Luke’s daddy. What your kid is also getting with this set is an impressive 18 Star Wars minifigures, more than we have seen in just about any other set.
It is kind of hard to believe that we have reached the 20th Anniversary of the “prequel trilogy” of Star Wars movies, a 3-part saga that showed us audiences the path that Anakin Skywalker took to become the Sith Lord Darth Vader. (Are we beyond the territory of “spoiler alert” tags here?) Anyway, the Clone Scout Walker Lego Kit is a 250-piece building set that allows kids to construct the Scout Walker as depicted in Revenge of the Sith. These handy mechanical walkers were part Mech-Suit and part armored vehicle as they tramped around the intergalactic battlefield, and this one also happens to come with an exclusive 20th Anniversary Darth Vader minifigure.
The Clone Wars may have taken place a long while ago in a Galaxy pretty far off from here, we have still heard the stories of the epic space battles and ground combat missions that took place during these violent years. The Clone Turbo Tank Lego Set lets kids rebuild one of the most effective Clone transport vehicles. This rolling and rocking tank-like cruiser is over one foot long when totally completed, enough to transport any number of your army’s clone troopers to the front lines with ease. Kids will also find a realistic suspension system that makes this a great toy for the sandbox or back yard.
After his defeat at the hands of his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, the injured Darth Vader took up residence on the planet Mustafar in a tall and vicious looking castle … a fiery, lava-filled headquarters that served as a good visual metaphor for what Vader was likely experiencing on the inside. Now, this Sith Master Mega-Pad can be recreated with Lego Blocks, 1,060 of them to be precise. One of the coolest bonuses about this set is that it also comes with the pieces to make Darth Vader’s Personal Tie Fighter, giving him the option of flying off to another Lego set if he so chooses.
While the actual Death Star from Star Wars was closer to the size of a real moon, this Lego Death Star Space Station playset is a much more manageable size, and we can only assume that it is a good deal more affordable than the real thing. This 4,016-block Lego kit is one of the biggest kits on our list in terms of the number of pieces. For this reason, it is recommended for ages 14 and up, but the truth is that any experienced Lego constructor will have a great time trying to re-build the most fearsome battle station in the galaxy. With over 23 character minifigures included with the set, your kid will be able to reenact any number of classic scenes.
One of the most memorable scenes in the 1981 flick The Empire Strikes Back shows our Rebellion forces defending their snow-covered base from an Imperial invasion force. Now, all the high-stakes action and adventure of this scene can be enjoyed in the comfort of a living room or play room. The Echo Base Lego Set is not only a faithful recreation of the famous space battle, complete with soldiers, laser cannons, and massive walking siege robots, but it also has working targets that two players can use to pit their forces against one another. There are only about 500 pieces in this set, which means that it goes together fast!
When the Rebel Base on Hoth was attacked during the opening scenes of The Empire Strikes Back, the Rebel good-guys had no other option than to take on their attackers in their awesome Snowspeeders, little air cruisers that were just as good above the snows of Hoth as they would be in space. True to form, this Lego Snowspeeder comes with that iconic tow-cable that can eject out of the back of the speeder, connecting to AT-AT legs to bring them down, right when it counts. Or, simply put any Lego minifigure into the opening cockpit and go on a cruise across the galaxy.
One of the friendliest places to hang out in the entirety of the Star Wars universe would no doubt have to be the Ewok Village on Endor, a peaceful tree fort village that is inhabited by the friendly but fierce Ewoks. Shown in Return of the Jedi, the Ewok Village is where Luke and Leia learn that they are brother and sister, and now this iconic scene and many more can be faithfully re-enacted in Lego form with this detailed and fully functional construction playset. The coolest part by far has to be the functioning net trap … the same one that ensnared our heroes in the movie!
The Imperial Tie Fighter is the standard ship-to-ship fighter of the Galactic Empire, and is known for both its maneuverability and its relatively inexpensive production costs. The 519-piece Lego Imperial Tie Fighter lets kids and fans alike recreate this famous space battleship with nothing but their favorite plastic building blocks. It comes with a missile chamber that really fires, as well as a collection of minifigures that most closely resemble the cast of characters seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story, where an Imperial Tie Fighter played heavily into one of the hero’s many escape sequences.
The reason that you are seeing more than one Millennium Falcon Lego Set on our review is because this is the ship that defined multiple generations of intrigue, romance, and intergalactic civil war. For this reason, it has seen both its better days and its worse days, the former never better displayed in Solo: A Star Wars Story. In this film, a relatively young-looking Millennium Falcon is showed in a cleaner and less beat-up form before Han Solo even got its hands on it. The set also comes with six different exclusive minifigures from the 2018 film, enough to recreate any one of your kid’s very favorite scenes.
