The Star Wars LEGO Sets That Will Help You Follow Your Passion
Lego and Star Wars: Two great geek interests which go even geekier together! These Lego Star Wars sets are the most sought-after collector’s items within both Lego and Star Wars fandom. You’d need a whole hobby room just to show them all off.
LEGO 10030 – Star Destroyer
LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV
“If this is a consular ship, where is the ambassador?” “Detail” is the keyword with this set. This model of the Tantive IV ship in service to the House of Organa has so many notable surprises in store. Instead of stickers, designs are painted on. The set introduces a Captain Antilles figure, who comes with a separate head for when Darth Vader is force-choking him! Also has a separate escape pod with seating for gold C-3PO and R2-D2.
Lego Star Wars Episode III Millennium Falcon
“You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought!” No one would dispute that the Millennium Falcon is one of the most iconic, easily-recognized space ships in science fiction history. This model, a rare find these days, was released in 2004 and features the Hoth version of the Falcon, complete with the Empire Strike Back crew of Solo, Leia, Chewy, and C-3PO. This model was one of the most popular ever released in the Lego Star Wars line, with movable gun turret, an interior revealed from flip-open top plates, drop-down boarding ramp, and more.
One of the most sought-after Lego Star Wars sets in the fandom, it’s a modular set intended for play value in replicating Cloud City scenes. A number of remarkable features hold its enduring collector’s value: It’s the first set to introduce a Lando Calrissian figure and has him in his original garb. It comes with an exclusive Boba Fett figure, and is also the only set to feature Luke and Leia in their Bespin costumes. Also comes with the iconic Han-in-carbonite set-up. A classic set!
LEGO Star Wars Episode 1: Darth Maul Sculpture
For a change, this is a Lego set that forgoes the playset mentality to focus on the art form of Lego modeling itself. The set contains very few specialized pieces, being mostly bricks and instructions, producing this handsome bust with a stand for display. Darth Maul, while almost teased in his Phantom Menace appearance, is a fan favorite character with a striking appearance, beautifully recreated here.

LEGO Star Wars: AT-AT Walker
Lego Star Wars Jedi Master Yoda (7194)
When you’re building this model, remember that “do, or do not; there is no ‘try’!” The most famous Force master was released as one of two large sculptures in the Ultimate Collector Series line – the other being the Darth Maul bust. As a large sculpture kit, it comes with few custom pieces, only traditional bricks and an instruction book. You can’t judge this set from the box; the completed model is much more impressive and will be a model you will display with pride for years to come.
A must-have for every classic Star Wars fan, this set, while only having a modest 682 pieces, is a full kit which brings together four TIE Fighter models, several Imperial pilots, and of course Darth Vader himself, at his most impressive brandishing his red lightsaber. The TIE Fighter ships have an impressive level of detail with many custom pieces and authentic touches such as the Imperial logo on the wings and detailed control panels in the cockpits. A versatile set with complete Star Wars action, whose individual pieces will work excellently as part of many other Star Wars tableaus.
