The world of LEGO Star Wars

While brick-built ships tend to dominate the LEGO Star Wars theme, the designers have also turned their hands to familiar buildings over the years, including the rebel base on Yavin in 75365 Yavin 4 Rebel Base, the criminal underworld of Tatooine in a number of sets, ranging from 2004’s 4501 Mos Eisley Cantina to 2020’s 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina.

Star Wars LEGO sets are often sought after not just for the main builds themselves, but also the rare minifigures that often populate them, from particularly detailed versions of popular characters like The Mandalorian’s Din Djarin to rare sightings of niche characters like Fives or Captain Rex. Indeed, particularly unique minifigures.

With so much room for design inspiration, LEGO Star Wars has also spawned various sub-themes over the years, from its dedicated helmet collection to its ever-growing list of Ultimate Collector Series models. The former includes medium-sized busts of iconic Star Wars helms, each built for display with a sturdy black base, ideal to perch on a shelf.

The latter might require more substantial shelves or even dedicated display cabinets, with UCS models using thousands of pieces to depict Star Wars ships in impressive detail. This series will also often include rare and especially detailed minifigures to put the finishing touch on a Star Wars LEGO set.

A particular favourite and number one on many LEGO Star Wars collectors’ wishlists is the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon. The ship has spanned both the original and sequel trilogies and is one of the most beloved ships from the franchise. There have been over a dozen LEGO versions of the Falcon, ranging from midi-scale renditions to multiple UCS sets of the junkyard ship.

It’s not uncommon for the same ships and locations to be revisited by the LEGO Star Wars team but the purchase of the Star Wars IP by Disney and the subsequent flurry of films and TV shows has provided more material to inspire designers. From sets based on the well-received The Mandalorian and Ahsoka TV shows to a renewed interest in the era of The Clone Wars, there’s always something new cooking in the LEGO Star Wars theme.

What’s more, there are enough characters to spark annual LEGO Star Wars advent calendars, bringing some festive fun to fans from a galaxy far, far away. The first one was produced in 2011, making it the first licensed LEGO advent calendar in the brand’s history.

LEGO Star Wars games

The collaboration between the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm has not only resulted in physical sets but also LEGO Star Wars games, culminating in 2022’s LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. This brought together all previous chapters of the game into one edition, covering everything from Episode I to Episode IX. This bumper edition also saw the debut of new characters and extra missions, fleshing out the virtual, brick-built world of LEGO Star Wars. The LEGO Star Wars games were known for their quirky brand of humour, retelling the story of Star Wars through minifigure animation and slapstick comedy.

Not only have LEGO Star Wars characters appeared in their own games, but 2023 saw the launch of LEGO Fortnite and the possibility to play as a LEGO Star Wars minifigure yourself, using specially-designed Star Wars LEGO skins. The library of LEGO Star Wars styles has been growing ever since, expanding to include favourites like Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, and so on.

The world of LEGO Star Wars

The unique style of the LEGO Star Wars games has also resulted in a distinct tone for the world of LEGO Star Wars, separate from the Lucasfilm and Disney titles. A few times a year, the LEGO Group will release short films of LEGO Star Wars characters for Christmas and other holidays, building out the minifigure-driven world of the brick-based galaxy. This separate identity for LEGO Star Wars has even carved out its own unique lore, with an unnamed minifigure now known as Jedi Bob slowly generating his own sub-fandom. First appearing simply as an anonymous Jed in 2002’s 7163 Republic Gunship, the LEGO Star Wars community built out a backstory and subsequent fandom for the minifigure, so much so that he quickly became a fan favourite.

This, alongside the ongoing success of the theme’s traditional products, separates LEGO Star Wars out from other themes. Not only is it for fans of Star Wars, or fans of LEGO, but it has actually sparked a community of fans specifically for LEGO Star Wars and has gone from strength to strength because of it.

This breadth and variety of Star Wars LEGO means that it easily appeals to fans of all ages, from younger builders who build armies from battle packs and get stuck into battle packs to older people who splash out on UCS models and more display-focused sets – and everything and everyone in between.

FAQs:
How many LEGO Star Wars sets are there?

There are fewer than 100 LEGO Star Wars sets on the market but more than 800 sets have joined the theme throughout the years it’s been running, with new versions of popular ships and locations getting fresh designs regularly, as well as new sets based on more recent Star Wars titles.

What was the first LEGO Star Wars set?

In 1999, the LEGO Group first revealed its partnership with Lucasfilm, the team behind the original Star Wars trilogy. The very first Star Wars LEGO sets were released that same year, starting with 7140 X-Wing Starfighter and soon followed with a full wave. All of those original sets were based on the original trilogy, including 7150 TIE Advanced & Y-wing, 7180 B-wing Fighter, 7110 Landspeeder, 7130 Snowspeeder and 7128 Speeder Bikes.

While these were the first LEGO Star Wars sets to hit the market, there was a LEGO Star Wars item that came even earlier, at the 1999 American International Toy Fair that took place in February. A fairly basic fight scene between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in minifigure form was given out to the press to celebrate the launch of the new theme, arguably making this promo product the very first ‘set’ to join LEGO Star Wars.

What is the biggest LEGO Star Wars set?

The biggest LEGO Star Wars set ever is 75192 Millennium Falcon, with a whopping 7,541 pieces. As one of the most popular ships ever to fly across the galaxy at hyperspeed, it’s no surprise that it’s been given the largest number of pieces to render every detail of the hunk of junk.

How many LEGO Star Wars helmets are there?

For such a far-reaching theme, LEGO Star Wars has sparked a number of sub-themes, including the LEGO Star Wars helmet collection. Dozens of Star Wars characters don helmets to fight and fly, so there’s certainly plenty of fodder for inspiration, resulting in 11 sets in the sub-theme.
