The Best Star Wars Lego Sets of 2017

 Intro Para - Something like. After bingeing on Legos for many years, I've come up with the best Star Wars sets out today. I've used my own experience for the basis of my lists but have also scoured the web for reviews, input and ratings and combined them all for your easy consumption. 

Highest-Rated Star Wars Kit


Straight to the point, skip everything else and go get this set if you dont have it already. This is the highest rated Star Wars set from the community and also my personal favorite. 

Legos and Star Wars. Is there a more perfect match to be made in Lego licensing heaven? To many people, no, there isn’t as both long running brands bring to mind very specific sets of nostalgia. It is no surprise that Lego choose Star Wars as the first licensing set in their product line back in 1999 (it debuted along with Winnie the Pooh Duplo that same year). The original release coincided with the release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Lego would continue rolling out sets tied to the latest movies while also producing classics from the original trilogy. The results are sets spanning eight theatrical movie releases (soon to be nine with The Last Jedi), and additional television shows. As far as licensed themes go, Star Wars has a long history in the Lego world.

Lego clearly wants to keep the history going as the Star Wars theme is consistently among the upper echelon of Lego themes in terms of the most sets coming out in a year. Part of this is due to the recent and planned theatrical releases of The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and The Last Jedi and, naturally, they still frequently draw from the first six movies in the franchise. Lego doesn’t stop there, however, as the animated shows Freemaker Adventures, Rebels, and Clone Wars all have sets that are not retired as of 2017. Eight movies and three television shows, that’s a lot of source material to choose from. What made it into our top ten list? Find out below.

What Sets Are Eligible For Our List?

Any Lego Star Wars set that is still readily available, i.e. not retired, in 2017 could qualify for our list. That is a pretty broad list and we did consider quite a few, but there are some other ways we narrowed it down. There are a couple of dozens sets which are little more than a minifigure and a small ship or other accessory. If one of these blew us away, we would consider it, but given the wealth of options available, that didn’t happen.

How Did We Rate The Sets?

At the end of the day, this is our website and our list, so our opinion had the final say. However, we’d be fools not to use the opinions of thousands of other brickheads out there. We checked out the set ratings from the top retailers and factored them into our ratings when necessary. We weren’t going to have a strong opinion swayed, but if we were on the fence about any, we’d take those ratings under consideration.

As for how we judge sets ourselves, we tend to break it down into two categories: the build and the components. We’re like any other Lego enthusiast, we love the build. It needs to be challenging and engaging, not something that can be pieced together without instructions. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a huge set, there is often a lot of fun to be had in smaller sets, but the build needs to grab our attention. Most of those on our list end up being on the longer side for builds, as it's the nature of the build that sets with more detailed builds will end up more engaging for us.

The components come down to “what’s in the box?” This is an important aspect of any Lego set, but arguably even more so in a licensed theme like Star Wars. As a fan of the movies, you know the sets before you start building them. Sets which have the perfect balance of nostalgia and just plain cool features will inevitably rise to the top for us.

#1 Millennium Falcon Quick Review

The Millennium Falcon set comes in at the top of our list simply because it’s freaking awesome. It is among the two or three most recognizable images from the entire Star Wars franchise, so it easily checks the nostalgia box. The set is huge at 1329 pieces and takes a few hours to complete. Inside the box you get the awesome Falcon itself, complete with the iconic holochess board, cockpit, and even spring loaded blasters. Additionally, you get a wealth of minifigurines including Han Solo, Chewbacca, Rey, Finn, and BB-8 (you get two more, but who cares about those guys?). The minor complaint here is that this is The Force Awakens version, so you get old Han, rather than A New Hope Han. That’s easy enough to ignore, however, with the all around spectacular set included here.
