Star Wars toys first hit store shelves in the mid-1970s


It wasn’t until the release of The Phantom Menace in 1999, however, that Star Wars-themed Legos entered the galaxy. Be it the Death Star Lego set or the Lego Star Wars Clone Wars sets, the new brick sets allowed kids to build entire scenes from a newly expanded Star Wars universe. There are so damn many Lego Star Wars toys out there that finding the best ones is more difficult than winning the Battle of Malachor.  

If you’re going to buy Star Wars Legos, there are the ones every Jedi should own.

Sure, he killed his dad. And yes, he’s a wee bit conflicted about his future in the Evil Empire. But one thing Kylo Ren has on lockdown: The coolest ship in the galaxy. It has trigger-activated spring-loaded shooters, of course.
Rogue One's
The Lego Tie Striker from Star Wars: Rogue One features large adjustable wings, a front-and-back opening cockpit, and comes with 4 minifigs: TIE pilot, Imperial ground crew, Imperial shore trooper, and a rebel trooper.
LEGO Star Wars: The Clone Wars Anakin's Jedi Starfighter 75214 Building Kit
This isn't the most complex Lego set. Nor is it the most fancy one. But it's one very iconic ship from The Cone Stars, featuring an opening cockpit, retractable landing gear and firing stud shooters.

This set features a clip for Anakin’s Lightsaber, a hidden compartment for extra ammunition, a space for the R2-D2 droid and wing-mounted stud shooters.
LEGO Star Wars Imperial TIE Fighter 75211 Building Kit

There’s a lot to like about Poe Dameron’s X-wing fighter from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, beginning with its visually-striking black and orange color scheme. It has retractable landing gear, wings that open, and a cockpit with room for the Poe minifig.
LEGO Star Wars Emperor Palpatine's Shuttle
This comes with everything you need to capture that scene in Lego: the Imperial shuttle, a battle-scarred Anakin, Emperor Palpatine, a medical droid, and clone pilot. The ship's top opens up too, perfect for a good view of Anakin's final tragic transformation.

One of the most memorable moments in all of Star Wars comes at the end of Episode III Revenge of the Sith when Emperor Palpatine takes an almost dead Anakin Skywalker and entombs him in the black life support suit that would mark the birth of Darth Vader, the strong arm of the galactic empire.
LEGO Star Wars Episode VIII First Order Heavy Assault Walker
With this killer set, you can recreate epic battle scenes from Star Wars: Episode VIII, The Last Jedi or galactic battles of their own.
Buy Now $149.99
Based on the design from The Last Jedi (and not from the greatest Star Wars movie ever, The Empire Strikes Back), this imposing 1,300-piece All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) Heavy Assault Walker features detailed armored plating, posable legs and head, a storage compartment, and rapid-fire stud shooters.
The Clone Wars
It measures  7-inches high, 17-inches long, and 14-inches wide, and has two different modes for landing and flying. In landing mode, the cockpit rotates and the wings fold down to simulate hovering. Naturally, it comes with Boba Fett and a carbonite-trapped Han Solo from the end of Empire Strikes Back. One thing to note: It takes seven hours to build so plan accordingly.

If you're going to get one ship, let it be this one. After all, the Imperial Star Destroyer is the signature vessel of the Imperial fleet.

More a collector’s set than one to play with, this 4,000-piece Death Star comes with a whopping 23 minifigs, including Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker so fans can recreate the scene where Vader reveals the truth about Skywalker’s lineage.
