Six aliens we’d love to see in LEGO Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett sets

As The Book of Boba Fett explores Star Wars past and present, we’ve speculated which characters could receive new versions in LEGO sets.

The Book of Boba Fett is the latest Star Wars series to hit Disney+, following the events of The Mandalorian’s second season. It follows former bounty hunter Boba Fett and his associate Fennec Shand, as they attempt to step into the shoes (or tail) of crime lord Jabba the Hutt.

In keeping with recent Star Wars media, The Book of Boba Fett blends explores both classic Star Wars creatures and newer characters. As LEGO Book of Boba Fett sets are pretty likely (and there’s a rich tradition of Star Wars aliens in LEGO form) we’ve rounded up five we think are likely to make an appearance.

This article will – obviously – contain spoilers for the first two episodes of the show.

6 – Gamorrean Guards

These green, pig-like creatures first appeared in Return of the Jedi as security for Jabba the Hutt’s palace. Upon their return to the palace, Boba and Fennec take a pair of these into their employ. The guards come in handy when Boba and Fennec face an attack from mysterious assailants in the first episode.

Gamorrean Guards have appeared in LEGO form before, although they’re rather rare nowadays. They’ve only made four appearances in LEGO form; the last was in 75005 Rancor Pit, pictured above. Rumours of a new set inspired by Jabba’s palace mean a new Gamorrean Guard is possible, and a welcome addition to any LEGO Star Wars collection.

5 – Twi’leks

These colourful aliens feature distinctive head tails, and are some of the most recognisable creatures in the Star Wars universe. Twi’leks have appeared in media such as The Clone Wars, Rebels and (of course) the Book of Boba Fett. Several can be seen in the drinking hole Boba and Fennec visit towards the start of the episode.

Twi’leks have appeared in LEGO form on half a dozen occasions; the most recent (pictured above) was Aayla Secura, in a 2017 set inspired by Star Wars Legends. Bespoke Twi’lek head pieces will (hopefully) result in new Twi’leks in the future; a Book of Boba Fett set is an ideal place for them to appear.

4 – Max Rebo

75020 Jabbas Sail Barge Star Wars

This bright blue elephant is one of the most distinctive characters in early Star Wars, and has earned a cult following amongst certain Star Wars fans. The alien musician was a guest aboard Jabba’s sail barge in Return of the Jedi; his apparent survival in The Book of Boba Fett was warmly received on social media.

Max Rebo has – to date – earned a single appearance in LEGO form. He pops up in the 2013 set 75020 Jabba’s Sail Barge, alongside Jabba the Hutt and the infamous Slave Leia character. We’re crossing our fingers he returns for an encore performance.

3 – Black Krrsantan

This Wookiee bounty hunter is a relatively new character, first appearing in the Darth Vader comic book in 2015. Beginning his career in the days of the Galactic Empire, Krrsantan was regularly employed by Jabba the Hutt and – on one occasion – the Dark Lord of the Sith himself. In The Book of Boba Fett, Krrsantan is employed by Jabba’s cousins to unseat Boba from his new throne.

Black Krrsantan has yet to appear in LEGO form; while LEGO Star Wars has made some deep dives in the franchise’s history, many corners of it remain unexplored. However, since many Wookiees have made LEGO appearances before now, a Black Krrsantan minifigure will hopefully join them.

2 – Tusken Raiders

Tusken Raiders tend to pop up in any Tatooine Star Wars story. The Mandalorian helped to humanise these mysterious creatures, while The Book of Boba Fett introduces new variations on the familiar Tusken Raider design. While these new Raiders hold Boba prisoner, it seems likely the bounty hunter will establish a more amicable connection.

Tusken Raiders continue to get fleshed out in this new era of Star Wars media (to our benefit) and they have been well-represented in Star Wars sets recently. 75299 Trouble on Tatooine featured one alongside the Mandalorian and Grogu, and another popped up in 75307 Star Wars Advent Calendar. However, the new variants we’ve seen recently would be a great choice for a Book of Boba Fett set in the future.

1 – The creature in the sand

While imprisoned by the Tusken Raiders Boba, a Rodian and their Tusken jailer encounter this hulking creature in the Tatooine sands. Nasties lurking in the sand is nothing new for Star Wars, but this creature’s four-armed design is quite distinctive. Some commenters have drawn comparisons to a similar creature in the 1981 movie Clash of the Titans.

The creature has no official name as yet (but it’s Star Wars, so give it five minutes) and would make an interesting choice for a LEGO Star Wars set. Larger creatures such as the Krayt dragon are probably unfeasible in LEGO form, but this four-armed foe could certainly shake things up in the LEGO Star Wars theme.

Until we get word of Book of Boba Fett sets, new LEGO versions of these creatures remain purely hypothetical. In the meantime, you can check out the current range of Star Wars sets on LEGO.com. The latest version of Boba Fett pops up in 75312 Boba Fett’s Starship alongside the Mandalorian; unfortunately Fennec Shand is currently exclusive to 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser, and a heftier investment as a result.
