We’ve had more Mando minifigures than you can shake a Darksaber at over the past year or two, but every single one of them has so far rocked a blank, black head. That’s despite the on-screen character being unmasked towards the end of the show’s first season, all the way back in 2019 – effectively giving the LEGO Group no reason not to create a mini Pedro Pascal.
So when images of 75325 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter – the first set based on Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett – originally landed online, there was some excitement over one particular photo published to the LEGO Group’s social accounts. Zooming into the Din Djarin minifigure seemed to suggest that it’s sporting a brand new, flesh-coloured head.
That was at odds with the box art, however, which (for some reason) shows Mando with what looks to be a reddish-brown head, matching the base colour of his torso and legs. To get to the bottom of this Mandalorian mystery, we reached out to the LEGO Group for a definitive answer – and got one back from the LEGO Star Wars team.
“Yes, this is the first set with Din Djarin, the Mandalorian, with an actual face with print,” the LEGO Group confirms to Brick Fanatics. It’s not clear why that new face print isn’t shown anywhere on the box or marketing materials – perhaps it wasn’t ready in time for those – but we’ve requested an image if one is available.
75325 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter launches on June 1 for £54.99 / $59.99 / €59.99. With only 412 pieces in the box, that’s not cheap – but getting the first-ever face print for Din Djarin should help soften the blow. You can also take some of the edge off that price by pre-ordering with double VIP points by February 28 in the UK, Europe and Australasia.
