LEGO and Star Wars have been a match made in heaven since 1999.
Since then, hundreds of LEGO Star Wars sets have been released, with many being revised time after time with the introduction of new pieces and building techniques. Needless to say, LEGO Star Wars sets released today are much more detailed than those twenty years ago. Most of them are much, much bigger, too. And more expensive.
Of course, like in all LEGO themes, LEGO Star Wars sets don’t stick around forever. Some are only available for a few months, while others are fortunately around for a few years. So, you might be wondering what are the best LEGO Star Wars sets available right now? With that in mind, we’ve put together a short list of our favourites for you. Whether you’re shopping for a gift or for yourself, these LEGO Star Wars sets are all fantastic, and get our seal of approval.
75301 Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter
If you’re a Star Wars fan who’s into LEGO, you’ll definitely want to add a X-Wing fighter to your collection at some point. Why not start with 75301 Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter? Priced at just £44.99, it’s a tiny bit smaller than many other made available over the last few years, but it’s every bit as impressive. It’s includes a nice selection of minifigures, too. You get Luke Skywalker (of course) in his pilot gear, as well as General Dodonna and Princess Leia. Even R2-D2 is included. A bargain if you ask us, and definitely one of the best LEGO Star wars that’s currently available.
75290 Mos Eisley Cantina
Be reminded of one of the classic moments of the Star wars saga by building your very own Mos Eisley Cantina. This isn’t just any LEGO Mos Eisley Cantina, however, this is one for adults, boasting an impressive level of detail thanks to its whopping 3,187 pieces. Of course, that means you have to pay a rather large sum of money for it. Still, just look at it – it’s worth every penny. An impressive 21 minifigures are included, as well as a landspeeder and a Dewback. The best part is the bar though – it’s brilliant. It’s one of the best LEGO Star Wars sets of all time if you ask us.
75257 Millennium Falcon
It should be law that anyone who’s into both Star Wars and LEGO should own a LEGO Millennium Falcon at some point in their lives. Of course, the best one you can get is the £649.99 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon, but if you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, then this smaller version will do rather nicely. It’s a classic model that has been updated time and time again, and it shows – there are wonderful little touches here and there. It comes with a nice selection of minifigs, too, including Lando Calrissian, Finn, Chewbacca, and Boolio.
31200 Star Wars The Sith
Got a wall that looks a bit bare? How about a piece of LEGO art work to liven it up? Or more specifically, a portrait of either Darth Maul, Darth Vader or Kylo Ren created in bricks? LEGO 31200 star Wars The Sith lets you create your very own work of Star Wars art. Buy three of them, and you can build an even more impressive picture of Darth Vader. Whichever one you build, they all look great. And a special soundtrack has been created to get your creative juices flowing while building. It’s something a bit different from LEGO, and one of the best LEGO sets currently available if you’re a Star Wars fan.
How would you like your very own Yoda to keep you company? You can’t have a real one, obviously, but you can have a brick built one. LEGO 75255 Yoda is an impressive model that stands over 41cm tall if you include his lightsaber. He also has a posable head and eyebrows, and movable fingers and toes. What more could you want? Being a part of the Ultimate Collectors Series, a plaque is included that provides some information about this iconic character, as well as a Yoda minifigure. Needless to say, it’s a must-have for any Star Wars fan.
