Track down your latest LEGO Star Wars bounty with our visual guide to the two newly-revealed The Mandalorian Season 3 sets.
The LEGO Group has today pulled back the curtain on two brand new LEGO Star Wars sets for 2023, each inspired by Season 3 of Disney+ series The Mandalorian: 75346 Pirate Snub Fighter and 75363 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter Microfighter. Check out the table below for a quick round-up of all the details on both these new models.
|LEGO set||Price||Pieces||Release date|

|75363 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter Microfighter||£12.99 / $15.99 / €15.99||88||August 1, 2023|
There’s more to these scores than just their numbers, though, so we’ve taken a tour through everything they bring to the table for budding LEGO bounty hunters…
LEGO Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 3 builds
75363 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter Microfighter is the second Microfighter for 2023, right behind 75344 Boba Fett’s Starship Microfighter. And it looks like not only a slightly more substantial build (thankfully, given the bump in price), but also a faithful recreation of Din Djarin’s new ship. The single-person fighter fits this format far better than the Razor Crest, too.
75346 Pirate Snub Fighter, meanwhile, is a brand new ship for the Star Wars universe – and subsequently a brand new design for the LEGO Star Wars theme. At first glance it could mostly be described as ‘grey’ – it’s surprising that the LEGO Group has missed the chance to add the red highlights of the ship in the show, unless that’s a consequence of changes between concept art and production – but we’ll never say no to something fresh in shape, at least.
LEGO Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 3 set comparisons
We’re all familiar with The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter by now – this isn’t its first LEGO set – but the Microfighter looks to do a pretty good job of capturing its distinctive shape, while still maintaining the subtheme’s trademark exaggerated proportions. It’s surely only a matter of time before someone recolours it into a classic Naboo Starfighter, too…
We’ve also had a good look at the source material for 75346 Pirate Snub Fighter, meanwhile, in the first episode of The Mandalorian Season 3. The ship features heavily in a dogfight with Din Djarin, so you’re going to want both 75325 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter and multiple copies of this set to properly recreate that scene.
The LEGO set stacks up pretty nicely next to the on-screen ship, complete with its three rear engines. Such accuracy isn’t always a given when sets are released in tandem with their source material, so we’re happy to see it here. The LEGO set isn’t quite as sharp as the real thing, though…
LEGO Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 3 minifigures
There are some cool customers spread between both these LEGO Star Wars sets, from the space pirates in 75346 Pirate Snub Fighter to a familiar duo in 75363 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter Microfighter.
Vane and the Snub Fighter Pilot both appear to use identical Nikto heads (surely the LEGO Group isn’t saying all Nikto look the same?), and the pilot’s outfit in particular offers a welcome splash of colour among an otherwise very grey set. The top draw for Mando fans will be Din Djarin himself, though, who’s rocking a brand new helmet in 75363 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter Microfighter.
It’s the same print from 75331 The Razor Crest, only applied to a metallic silver piece here (rather than gunmetal grey). That’s some nice attention to detail from the LEGO Star Wars team, and makes the Microfighter a day-one purchase – if only for the minifigure. (Grogu is a nice bonus, too.)
LEGO Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 3 new pieces
Beyond the new prints for the minifigures’ various helmets, heads, torsos and legs, neither of these sets contains much in the way of new pieces (at first glance). What stands out most is the cockpit in 75346 Pirate Snub Fighter, which was originally designed for 76832 XL-15 Spaceship – and has so far only appeared in trans-yellow in both that set and 40580 Blacktron Cruiser.
That means it’s new here in what looks like trans-black, or perhaps even a shade somewhere closer to blue or purple, though the exact colour is difficult to determine from official images alone. We’ll hopefully be able to pinpoint the precise shade when we have our hands on the set later this year.
