LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga’s Big Head Mode is incredible

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’s Big Head Mode is one of the funniest bonuses in a LEGO game and these five characters will show you why.

Out of all the bonuses in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, one returning extra is particularly enjoyable thanks to the unique playable minifigures in a galaxy far, far away. From Grogu to General Grievous, many of the characters in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga use non-standard minifigure elements to depict the various shapes and sizes of species in Star Wars.

This combines well with the Big Head Mode extra in the game, which as you might have guessed by the name grows the head of every minifigure. For most characters, this leads to comically oversized depictions of iconic figures from across The Skywalker Saga. However, a select few lead to some especially interesting results.

Despite not being playable, companion characters are affected by this bonus, meaning Salacious Crumb, the Porg and Grogu can struggle under the weight of their huge heads. Thankfully, Grogu has the Hoverpram to help him balance.


Not all characters are completed affected by this as Ewok ears remain normal-sized, leading to a concave formation on their head. This is almost certainly a glitch but only adds to the fun.

The Rancor is the biggest character in the game and as such, their head fills up the entire screen. Max Rebo faces a similar issue, with their tendrils hanging down to the floor, almost hiding his minifigure body except at certain angles.
