When it comes to the best Lego Star Wars sets, there's plenty of choice to choose from. Because of the high number of quality Lego Star Wars sets out there, we've included huge centerpiece models that can take days to complete like the Millennium Falcon or the Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) AT-AT, as well as smaller builds that include cool minifigures. 

We've highlighted the very best Lego Star Wars sets and there's something for everyone and every budget in this guide. This is a golden age for Lego Star Wars sets with so many quality builds out there - and more keep coming! It's not just fans of the original trilogy that get all the best sets, fans of newer Star Wars content will enjoy making builds like The Child (Baby Yoda), the Razor Crest or the Republic Gunship. 

As more and more Disney Plus series are added, including the upcoming Book of Boba Fett and Kenobi, the line is going to continue to expand with amazing sets. But for right now, there’s still a ton to choose from if you’re looking for the best Lego Star Wars sets. 

We've separated this best Lego Star Wars sets guide into three sections based on price bands: Under $100, $100-$250, and then the $250+ kits, along with some bargain kits that are under $30. If you're looking for more great deals, check out our Lego Star Wars deals, best Lego deals and Lego deals for space fans guides.

Best Lego Star Wars sets under $100

Lego Star Wars Imperial TIE Fighter

One of the most iconic ships in Star Wars history, the Imperial TIE Fighter is a great addition to any collection. A solid build that comes with a cockpit that opens and can fit mini figures inside, the Imperial TIE Fighter is the ideal set for someone just getting into Lego Star Wars, or for a collector who wants a whole fleet on his shelf. While there have been plenty of TIE Fighters in the past, we rarely see an iconic original trilogy ship for such great value, so it’s a set it’s hard to find fault with. There are more advanced versions of the TIE Fighter for more experienced collectors, but if you’re looking for a relaxing build that won’t take up your whole day, this Imperial TIE Fighter is ideal.

Lego Star Wars Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter

Lego has been doing a really good job recently of creating sets for iconic Lego Star Wars ships that won’t break the bank. As more and more young viewers get into the franchise, this line of ships under £50 is a great way to collect some of the best designs ever, without having to fork out for the UCS series. The inclusion of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, and General Dodonna also make it a great way to collect many of the most important original trilogy characters. It’s not the most detailed, and it’s not a build that will take you long, but pairing it with the Imperial TIE Fighter model for around the same price would make for a cool shelf display.

Lego Star Wars The Child

Whether you’re a die-hard fan of The Mandalorian, or you simply want a way to represent one of the cutest characters in a galaxy far, far away, The Child build-and-display model is a wonderful set. While some of the building instructions could be slightly clearer, and there’s not a great variety in the bricks included, once built, it looks fantastic on a shelf. Not to mention the poseable ears that add plenty of character to the small green alien that stole the hearts of so many, including The Mandalorian himself.

For fans who want something for a desk or smaller table, but don’t want something as clumsy or large as a classic Star Wars ship, this is the perfect middle ground. Sure, the build won’t be the most memorable Lego set you ever construct, but it doesn’t overstay its welcome, and it’s a good size for the price.

Lego Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet

Since he first stepped foot onto our screens in 1977, Darth Vader has become an icon of not only Star Wars, but cinema as a whole. One of the most iconic outfits and helmets of all time, it’s only natural that Darth Vader has received many Lego recreations. This Lego Star Wars set captures his helmet well, but there’s a bit of a problem. While Darth Vader’s helmet is legendary, it’s almost entirely black which makes it a bit of a boring build, and also somewhat confusing. Although it’s repetitive and a bit dull to build, when it’s finished it does look very regal. Positioning the Lego Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet next to the others in the Star Wars build-to-display series would make for a fantastic, well, display. Don’t believe us? We find your lack of faith disturbing.

Lego Star Wars Imperial Probe Droid

Ever wanted to feel like you’re being watched while fighting through the frozen planet of Hoth? Well, now you can! While the mechanical, imposing design of the Imperial Probe Droid is actually very well suited to a Lego set and makes for a challenging build, it doesn’t make for the most attractive display piece ever. If it wasn’t for the included nameplate identifying what it is, most people would probably think your Ring doorbell had suddenly decided that it was going to take over the world. The Imperial Probe Droid isn’t one of the most well-known droids in the Star Wars universe, so this one is more for collectors and Star Wars fanatics, rather than your everyday Star Wars Lego fan.

Lego Star Wars The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle

The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle is unique in the fact that it essentially provides three sets in one. You get five Bad Batch minifigures (plus a Gonk Droid Lego figure), two speeder bikes, and a shuttle which essentially makes this Lego Star Wars set more of a playset than a display item.

There’s much fun to be had with the adjustable wings for landing/flight mode and the spring-loaded shooters. Plus, you can even flip open the cockpit and see the detailed cabin inside The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle. It’s also a great way to get many exclusive figures, each sporting unique versions of the iconic clone trooper armor. This whole set is very accurate to the Star Wars: The Bad Batch TV show, capturing its visuals well. A must-have for fans of the Clone Force 99 missions.

Best Lego Star Wars sets $100-$250

Lego Star Wars R2-D2

For a droid that’s so famous for being shiny and smooth, we were very impressed by just how well R2-D2 fits the Lego style. Smartly built, this model not only leans back like the droid himself thanks to his retractable mid-leg, but can also open and extend his front hatches, pop out a moveable periscope, and rotate his head (inside of which is a secret compartment containing Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber).

It’s an expensive set at almost $200, but there are few more beloved and recognizable Star Wars characters and it’ll make a stunning centerpiece in any Star Wars fan’s home. Plus, who doesn’t want their very own sassy droid sidekick? It’s also a fun build that combines some unique building techniques in order to accurately portray R2-D2 as the three-legged space dustbin he is. Now, when are we getting a 6 ft Lego Star Wars C-3PO?

Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon

Would you like a Millennium Falcon Lego set that doesn’t require you to move into a new five-bedroom house to store it? Well, you’re in luck. Following the redesign in 2017 for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this new Millennium Falcon design was used again for Rise of Skywalker, giving us an affordable option that looks great. 

The minifigure selection is a bit of a mixed bag – on the one hand, it’s cool to get an older Lando, but on the other, a Millennium Falcon without Han Solo just feels wrong. This set is also due to retire next year, as Disney steps away from the sequel trilogy era, so it may be worth picking this one up before your only option is to sell your car in order to get the big boy… more on that later.

Lego Star Wars The Razor Crest

The Razor Crest is one of the very best designs of the modern Star Wars era. Everything about The Mandalorian was so cool, combining retro Star Wars aesthetics with modern technology to make something that just looks fantastic – it’s as if the Razor Crest could have been a discarded concept ship from the 70s. 

This set is also a great way to grab Mando, The Child, and a few more figures, making for a very complete set. It’s getting harder to find as the years go on, so we’d recommend picking this one up sooner rather than later. This is the way.

Lego Star Wars Imperial Light Cruiser

As the first Lego appearance for this ship, the Imperial Light Cruiser does a great job. Not only is it a cool ship, but it’s a playset too, something that Lego has stepped away from recently. It’s got two rotating turrets with spring-loaded shooters, as well as two mini TIE Fighter and a launcher – you won’t be able to resist making pew-pew noises when you play with this.

The minifigure selection is fantastic, meaning you can pick up the main heroes and villains in one go, even Cara Dune, in what is likely her last appearance. Overall, it’s a brilliant deal and a lot of fun to build.

Lego Star Wars AT-AT

If you’re asked for the Lego Star Wars AT-AT this Christmas, you might initially have a heart attack at the price. A new $799.99/£699.99 AT-AT model has joined the Lego Star Wars family, making it the most expensive set in the history of the line. But, fear not, there’s a cheaper set that looks almost as good, even if it’s about half the size. 

The Lego AT-AT comes with a cool selection of minifigures, and has space inside the model to display them. The legs could be a bit sturdier, but considering they were taken down by a dinky little ship with a bit of cable strapped to the end, it might be a more realistic depiction of the walker than we first thought.

Best Lego Star Wars sets $250+

Lego Star Wars Republic Gunship

Look, the prequel trilogy… wasn’t great, but what was great about it, was the sheer number of cool new ship designs it introduced. One of the most iconic from Attack of the Clones is the Republic Gunship, and with Lego finally giving the prequel trilogy some UCS love, you can bring it home. The first thing you’ll notice is a disappointing lack of minifigures. 

While most collectors will have plenty of Clones, it’s always nice to get more, especially for those that like to build up their armies. The ship itself though looks fantastic and captures the aesthetic of that era of Star Wars perfectly. It’s pretty pricey for the lack of figures, but the Lego Star Wars Republic Gunship is a quality set packed with features, and will look pretty awesome on a shelf.

Lego Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina

You’ll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy… and we’re just talking about the Lego Store on the last shopping day before Christmas. This is an absolute dream playset. Not only does it come with a huge amount of minifigures (21!) – some of which are such obscure characters that if you can name them all off the top of your head, you should probably go work at LucasFilm – but it’s got really detailed interiors which you can explore more closely thanks to the removable roof.

This is the kind of thing you’d see in a shop when you were young and your mind would explode with the possibilities of all the stories you’d tell in your Star Wars universe. Lego has made amazing UCS ships for a long time, but playsets are so rare that it's worth picking this one up purely because we don’t know when we’re likely to see something like this again, especially for the price. Warning: You will get the Cantina Band song stuck in your head whilst building this.

Lego Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer

While the Imperial Star Destroyer does accurately replicate one of the most imposing and menacing ships in the whole Star Wars franchise, as the spiritual follow-up to the UCS Millennium Falcon, it’s a bit of a disappointment. An incredible feat of engineering, the center mass of the build is a web of beams and bricks that make you feel like you’re actually building something meant to last rather than a weak display model. 

However, the lack of any real interior play features make it something that’s nice to look at, but not much beyond that. Not that you could really play with it, considering one slip and you’ll be picking up gray bricks from around your house for the next 100 years. This is definitely more of an iconic centerpiece for really hardcore collectors.

Lego Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon

You know a set is going to be impressive when the Lego Store was recommending that people take it home using wheels rather than carry it. At the time, the UCS Millennium Falcon was the biggest set ever released. While Lego Millennium Falcons have impressed in the past with their detail, seeing this thing next to one of the lower cost models makes it look tiny in comparison. If you’ve got enough room to display this thing, and trust us, you might need to clear the spare room to do so, it’s a must buy. 

Yes, it’s ludicrously expensive, but the price often drops quite significantly during sales. There will probably never be a better Lego Star Wars set, until they eventually make a 1:1 model of the Millennium Falcon you can actually fly. If there’s any criticism at all, it’s that it could do with a few more minifigures, but apart from that, it’s perfect.
