The first season of The Book of Boba Fett has just wrapped on Disney+. In true Star Wars fashion, we got to see a number of great new vehicles and locations. And in typical LEGO® fashion, a few of these locations and ships have become sets. Releasing this Spring are Boba Fett’s Throne Room (75326) and The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter (75325). If you haven’t watched the show, then these sets might be a bit on the spoilery side – so read on with caution. These bad boys join the Helmet collection in the Spring wave of goodies with definitely more offerings on the way. I’m pretty excited for the rumoured sets and more sets for Episode II and Jedi: Fallen Order. But for now, let’s take a look at what’s coming out of hyperspace.
the mandalorian’s N-1 starfighter
- SET #: 75325
- THEME: Star Wars
- COST: $79.99 CAD
- BRICK COUNT: 412
- MINIFIGURES: 2 + Grogu & BD-1 droid
- RELEASE DATE: June 1, 2022
- COST/BRICK: $0.19 (poor value)
- BRICK-TO-FIG RATIO: 206 bricks/fig (OK value)
When I saw this ship show up, I totally fan-boy’d out. One of the best starship designs from the prequels is the Naboo N-1 starfighter. That was one sexy vehicle and seeing it make a return was, well, to quote Mando: “WIZARD!” The modified design looks amazing on-screen and this is a pretty decent recreation. Included as minifigures are The Mandalorian with Darksaber and the first appearance of Tattoine junker/mechanic/comedian Peli Motto. The real treat is the inclusion of a mini BD-1 droid figure. Seeing that little guy make his TV debut was so much fun, and I hope the rumoured buildable figure of it are true. The real shocker is the price-per-brick value – it’s very high even for the Star Wars theme. With so few pieces and less details at that price, this is sure to cause some negative feedback.
boba fett’s throne room
- SET #: 75326
- THEME: Star Wars
- COST: $129.99 CAD
- BRICK COUNT: 732
- MINIFIGURES: 7
- RELEASE DATE: March 1, 2022
- COST/BRICK: $0.18 (poor value)
- BRICK-TO-FIG RATIO: 105 bricks/fig (excellent value)
The former seat of power of the illustrious Jabba the Hutt is now occupied by Boba Fett. Well, first an overweight Bib Fortuna, and then our favourite Sarlacc Pit survivor. This set is reminiscent of Jabba’s Palace (9156) from way way back in 2012. That set also recreated the throne area of the palace and came with 7 minifigures. For this iteration, we get a scene/play set with similar hinged and moving sections as the Mos Eisley Cantina (75290) released in 2020. Like the Starfighter, this comes to us with a very high cost-per-brick value. On the plus side though, this one gets an excellent brick-to-fig ratio thanks to 7 great minifigsures.
The minifigures here are awesome and feature some new and updated characters. The new Bib Fortuna is excellent, as are the Gamorrean and Weequay guards. Fennec Shand and Boba Fett look to be the same prints as those found in the Summer 2021 sets. Brand new for 2022 are a Quarren and a Theelin Dancer. The Quarren head sculpt is fantastic and will be a great addition to your cantina set. I’m not familiar with the dancer but that hair is fab and the full leg and torso prints are a nice bonus. Overall this is a great set for display, play or minifig collectors. It’s sure to do well.
“Me Jabba no badda”
This is a nice first hint at what’s sure to be a spring and summer wave chock full of great sets. The starfighter immediately caught the attention of fans. Within 24 hours of the episode airing I was already seeing MOCs and dioramas of it – all of which were amazing. Some definitely more elaborate than this official set. I’m eager for the ship, but I’m pretty on the fence given the value. But what do you guys think? Are you excited for more Star Wars goodness? Were you a big fan of The Book of Boba Fett? Did you also have a fun freak out when you saw the N-1 starfighter on screen? Please drop a comment in the usual spots and let us know. And as always, keep on brickin’. 🧱
