The LEGO Group has moved beyond Marvel-themed helmets and expanded into other MCU items – but when will the Star Wars universe get the same treatment?
76191 Infinity Gauntlet, 76223 Nano Gauntlet and 76209 Thor’s Hammer are all examples of iconic art from MCU history immortalized in brick form. Although there are similar examples of LEGO Star Wars, the majority of the large sets are centered on ships, like the UCS Millennium Falcon and the Razor Crest or the ever-growing helmet collection.
We can’t wait to see more objects from a galaxy far, far away, remade by the LEGO Group. In no particular order, here are five iconic Star Wars objects we’d love to see rendered to scale in brick-built forms.
5 – Luke Skywalker’s hand
If there’s one thing we need with Luke Skywalker’s 40483 lightsaber, it’s his mechanical hand. Rearth Vader’s reveal is arguably one of the most iconic scenes in the Skywalker saga, making the loss of Luke’s hand a seminal moment for the character in more than a physical way.
Moving forward, it’s not until you see the metal hand of Din Djarin and the gang’s Jedi savior that you know it’s Luke Skywalker coming to the rescue in The Mandalorian. The prosthetic limb is inherent art of the Luke character and it would be great to see it in brick format in a style similar to both 76191 Infinite Gauntlet and our 76223 Nano Gauntlet.
4 – The Dark Saber
While the LEGO Group may have already talked about why we don’t have a new minifigure-sized Darksword, what we really want is a scale version. Nothing quite resembles Darksaber, and it would be an impressive feat for any LEGO designer to pull off the unique colors.
Even the hilt is quite iconic, taking on a distinct depth to the silver and gold customary for most lightsabers. The harsh angles and dark colors would lend themselves to a striking LEGO effect together, as opposed to 40483 Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber.
3 – Han Solo’s blaster
As guns go, blasters can be overlooked in favor of lightsabers in the Star Wars universe. That’s why we insist that Han Solo’s blaster be made into a scale LEGO version, maybe even fire its own stud blasters.
Complete with its own stand, it would make a great display piece alongside the 75192 Millennium Falcon. Plus, you can play the Han-Greedo scene yourself and decide who shot first once and for all.
2 — Boba Fett’s Jettpack
We have the Bounty Hunter Helmet with 75277 Boba Fett Helmet, but who doesn’t want their own jetpack sitting on a shelf or wall mounted? While we accept that the LEGO Group probably won’t release a set that can actually fly, we can let our imaginations do the rest.
The set doesn’t even exist, but we’re already imagining the effect we could have with orange LED lights attached to the bottom of a brick jetpack. We’ve done our part – let’s get the LEGO Group to do theirs!
1 – Kyber Crystals
We were finally able to collect Kyber bricks in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and it left us wanting more. We would love to build our own brick Kyber crystals and start our own Jedi/Sith journey.
Even better, the LEGO Group has offered more customization options on recent sets such as 31207 Flowers Art and 76391 Hogwarts Icons – Collector’s Edition. If LEGO Kyber crystals were on the cards, you could decide your own color for the center of the crystals, just like any young Force-sensitive Padawan would.
