The Best Star Wars LEGO Sets From Across The Galaxy
This partnership may have started over 20 years ago but it’s still going strong today. LEGO Star Wars includes the complete saga, going from A New Hope right through to Rise of Skywalker.
The sheer scale of this partnership allows you to play out your dreams from across the galaxy, along with re-creating plenty of cool vehicles and settings from the Star Wars universe.
This means that there’s an awful lot of selection when it comes to finding the best LEGO Star Wars sets and fortunately for you all, here at Zavvi we’ve put together 10 of our favourites which super fans of the franchise will love.
LEGO Star Wars sets come in a range of difficulties and levels, testing the skills of the most ferocious of Sith Lords and powerful Jedi Knights.
Suited to both members of the Resistance and the First Order, you can launch battles, re-live iconic moments or create your favourite characters. A nice treat for yourself or a great present for a friend, the gift of a Star Wars LEGO set is simply out of this world…
Below you’ll find 10 of the best LEGO Star Wars sets, well out of the clutches of the First Order:
- LEGO Death Star
- LEGO Tie Fighter
- LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens
- LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi
- LEGO AT AT
- LEGO Ewok Village Endor Assault
- LEGO Millennium Falcon
- LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth
- LEGO AT-ST Raider
- LEGO Star Wars X-Wing
What a place to get started. The most iconic ship to come from the saga and possibly from any space-related movie, the Death Star. This monster was created by the Empire during the Darth Vader-Emperor era and it had the capacity to destroy entire planets, as the rebels cruelly discovered first hand. But before they miraculously defeated it, we saw some iconic scenes played out on it – one of which was Obi-Wan’s infiltration of the base in A New Hope. Now with this super LEGO Star Wars Death Star set you can re-create it and it’s pretty great. This set includes firing cannons, tractor beams and a Death Star gunner alongside Obi-Wan. This ones up there with the best LEGO Star Wars sets and it’s certainly one for lovers of the original trilogy.
Another iconic ship to come from this legendary saga is the Tie Fighter. Featuring in every film across each era, Tie Fighters are piloted by Empire/Resistance soldiers and they’re known for their speed and ability to wreak havoc. Well now you can also do the same by launching an attack on a Rebel command station, as seen in A New Hope. This LEGO set includes the fighter, an Empire pilot and a poor Rebel trooper who really has his work cut out – another great gift for fans of the OG movies.
The Force Awakens had huge hype around it but for us, it’s definitely up there with the best films of the saga. It provides us with plenty of memorable moments but one of the best was without a doubt the epic battle at the Starkiller Base which resulted in Rey and Kylo Ren facing off in a crazy battle whilst their surroundings were in complete disarray. This LEGO Star Wars set includes the two key characters along with their lightsabers to play out this duel – this isn’t one to be missed.
The Last Jedi revealed a lot of Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren’s past to us, whilst Rey really stepped up her Jedi training and learned the ways of the force. It was at Ahch-To island where this unfolded and this LEGO set gives you the chance to do some Jedi training of your own. Featuring Luke and Rey minifigures along with a Porg figure, you can cut through boulders with lightsabers and much more.
Coming in at number five we have a personal favourite of ours here at Zavvi UK and one that we believe is certainly up there with the very best LEGO Star Wars sets. Headlining this piece of kit is the iconic AT-AT, which was first introduced to us in the Empire Strikes Back which is arguably the best film, but we’ll save that argument for another day. This gargantuan machine is brought to the snowy world of Hoth in an attempt to eliminate the hiding rebels in what makes for a typically epic battle – one which you can now recreate. This 1267 piece juggernaut is also joined in the box by 6 special minifigures including Luke Skywalker, General Veers, AT-AT drivers & snowtroopers. It doesn’t get much better than this.
The Return of the Jedi provided us with some memorable moments and one of which was the battle on Endor. The Rebels and the Ewoks worked together to overthrow the Empire against the odds but it wasn’t easy. This set allows you to re-create that Ewok Village assault with a range of weapons along with two LEGO minifigures, a Scout Trooper and an Ewok Warrior. And if that wasn’t good enough there’s also a speeder bike and for those high octane pursuits – sounds like so much fun. The ultimate in nostalgia.
One of the most famous sci-fi ships of all time and it’s one that’s made the Kessell Run – although we’re sure you’ve heard that from Han Solo. The epic Millennium Falcon is Solo and Chewbacca’s prized possession, with it going from the ultimate getaway vehicle for their smuggling missions right through to becoming a linchpin in the Rebellion’s battle against the Empire. It’s been an almost ever present through the Star Wars story and it’s something that many fans of the franchise hold dear to them – so it’s only right it’s immortalised in LEGO form right? One of our favourite Star Wars model kits coming in at a huge 1351 pieces, this gives you the chance to build up this classic vessel along with providing favourites of the story in minifigure form, featuring the likes of Chewy, Finn, R2D2, C-3PO and more.
Another one of our favourite films has to be the Empire Strikes Back, which is an absolute masterpiece of cinema. This was full of epic battles and one of which came in the snowy world of Hoth, where the Rebels faced Darth Vader, AT-AT’s and hoards of Stormtroopers. This battle has become synonymous with the saga and it’s available to re-live through one of the best Star Wars LEGO sets. Featuring Snowtroopers, Rebel Troopers and a load of weapons, this will provide a lot of fun or make a neat addition to your collection.
This franchise is known for it’s range of crazy intergalactic vehicles and one of the most eye-catching ones is certainly the AT-ST. This steals a march on it’s enemies by charging around on foot and causing mayhem with it’s turrets. As seen in The Mandalorian, this Lego AT-ST Walker comes with four characters, blasters and it’s a pretty cool piece of kit.
Have you ever dreamed of owning Luke Skywalker’s X-wing? Well, now you can. This famous ship played a huge part in taking down the Death Star and this fantastic LEGO Star Wars set gives you the chance to re-create that famous scene when Luke used the force to perfection. This LEGO X-Wing comes with some great accessories including a Stormtrooper and Luke minifigure along with a lightsaber, blaster and more. A set up there with the best, for sure.
