The Best Lego Star Wars Sets of All Time

Latest posts by Candace Osmond (see all)

Did you know that Star Wars has the most popular line of Legos out of all the Lego themes? There are an empire’s worth of Star Wars Lego sets available, so I’ve taken it upon myself to show you the best ones. I’ll go over where to buy the best Star Wars Lego sets, how to make sure you buy authentic Lego merchandise, and show you some of the most popular sets out there. Ready to start? Let’s kick it into hyperdrive!

Bottom Line Upfront

I’m a major Lego freak, and a huge Star Wars fan. So, you can imagine I’ve assembled my fair share of sets. One of my favs was Lego Star Wars Boba Fett’s Starship 75312 Toy Building Kit because I got to share the experience with my kids who are currently binging The Book of Boba Fett with me.

Top Picks

Before we get started on the hard facts, I’d like to show you the best Star Wars Lego sets. I chose these based on their overall awesomeness, cost vs. what you get, and availability.

What Star Wars Lego Set is Most Popular?

The most popular Star Wars Lego set is so large it’s estimated to take you around 24 hours to build it. It’s the Lego Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon from 2007. There are 7,541 pieces in the set, so it’s an absolute monster.

What is the Most Valuable Star Wars Lego Set?

The 10179 Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon is by far the most valuable Star Wars Lego set. This set has been devalued over time due to a couple of factors, like new Millennium Falcon models coming out, but the asking price is still $1,676.

Where is the Best Place to Buy Star Wars Legos?

Star Wars Lego sets are so popular. You can find them just about everywhere! But I made a list of some of the best places in stores and online to buy these epic galactic sets:

  • Walmart
  • Target
  • Barnes & Nobel
  •  Toys R Us
  • Disney stores
  • Lego stores
  •  Amazon
  •  eBay

Where Can You Buy Used Star Wars Lego Sets?

Let me introduce you to Bricklink. Bricklink is a reputable online marketplace where you can buy new, used, and even rare Star Wars Lego sets. You can list your own Star Wars Lego sets and pieces to sell or pick up pieces you may have lost or wanted to add to your sets.

I encourage you to browse through everything Bricklink has to offer here:

What to Look for in a Star Wars Lego Set

Are you ready to break down the whats, wheres, and hows of buying Star Wars Lego sets? The truth is, there is some fake Star Wars Lego merchandise being sold in places online. I’ll help you sort through the fakes with a few quick pointers about what to look for.

Price

In addition to selling fake merchandise, some people are also trying to rip you off. Before you buy any Star Wars Lego set online, check the price of that same set in multiple locations.

For example, if you’re trying to buy a Lego set from a private seller on a website like eBay or Amazon, check the price that other sellers are listing that set for. If someone lists their Star Wars Lego set of Han Solo in a mini Millennium Falcon for $300 and the usual asking price is $30, there’s a problem.

Availability

Some Star Wars Lego sets are retired, which means Lego isn’t making them anymore or featuring them on their website. The availability of an item can go a long way in determining its price because the rare sets that aren’t made anymore go for a lot of money. You can check the availability of a specific Star Wars Lego set online to see if it will be in stores or not before you get there.

Buying from a Reputable Seller

If you’re buying from a private seller, I seriously recommend buying from a seller that consistently gets 5-star reviews. Buying from someone that consistently receives reviews below 5 stars could mean you’re buying from a scammer. You can buy Star Wars Legos from retail stores if you want to eliminate any chance of buying fake merchandise, which is also wise.

Official Lego Merchandise

Did you know that the Lego logo is individually stamped onto each Lego stud? To ensure your Legos are real Legos, look at the pieces and check to see that every raised stud has the word “Lego” printed on it. If it doesn’t, it’s a fake.
