Things to Know about Star Wars Minifigs

Star Wars is an ever-growing franchise. Because it’s featured across all kinds of media, there’s something for most people to enjoy. For instance, whether you’re a movie, video game or comic book enthusiast, there’s something for you.

With this expanding franchise comes an expanding fanbase. There’s nothing like the Star Wars fanbase, which tend to be incredibly passionate about it. This is probably why merch are very popular, causing the franchise to release more. In fact, some of the Star Wars Lego sets in the market, especially rare vintage ones, can fetch for a lot of money.

In the realm of toys and mini figures, there are many kinds. Below are some things you can learn about these types of merchandise.

  1. There Are Numerous Choices

One of the best sci-fi movies of all time, Star Wars is filled with plenty of characters, each with their unique charms and roller coaster stories. Because of this, there are also plenty of Star Wars mini figures to choose from.

Of course, there are the most known characters such as Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, Master Yoda and so on. But even those who didn’t get as much screen time in the movies have their own mini figures. For instance, even pit droids, Gungan warriors and battle droids have dedicated mini-figures.

  1. Some Are Custom-made

Although minifigures can be easily bought, there are also some that are custom-made. The fantastic thing about these customised figures is that you can make one of yourself or a character of your liking. The way to do this is to go through Lego’s Pick a Brick section to pick out all kinds of pieces and accessories that will create the mini figure you want. Then, you can make your character and the original Star Wars minifigures pose in the same set.

  1. Certain Minifigures Are More Valuable

Collectibles are a huge part of the Star Wars merchandise. There are rare and vintage ones that are highly sought after by collectors. Because of this, some of these pieces tend to be more valuable, especially when set up for auction.

However, it can be tricky to tell which mini-figures are more valuable than others. Here are the most expensive Star Wars figures so far.

  • NYI Heart Yoda – average price USD$1,000
  • Finch Dallow – average price USD$522.67
  • Yuletide squadron – average price USD$403.38
  • Boba Fett White – average price USD$195.29
  • Darth Revan – average price USD$183.08



  1. Characters Can Have Different Versions

Some characters from Star Wars have minifigures of different versions. This is expected, especially for the most popular characters. Take Anakin Skywalker, for example, he has multiple versions, such as the following:

  • Padawan, Combed Hair
  • Parka
  • Sith Face
  • Transformation process

These are only some examples; the Anakin Skywalker minifigure alone has around 26 figures. Another character that has other versions is Han Solo, which has around 47.

With the popularity of the Star Wars toys, there are plenty more Star Wars figures to be made in the future. With the newly released Obi-Wan Kenobi series, there’ll surely be more new versions of the character released as minifigures.

  1. Fans Await Minifigures

As mentioned, a new series can lead to more minifigures. Some people believe that minifigures also help keep the hype of the franchise alive because there’s always something for people to look forward to.  With every new series or game, fans will have something to look forward to when it comes to collectibles or toys. For instance, the popularity of The Child or Grogu skyrocketed after the first season of Mandalorian. With this, the demand of toys, plushies and even minifigures of Grogu rapidly increased.

As more series adaptations are in the making, fans can be more excited about new or existing characters being made into minifigures they can have to play with or to collect.

  1. They’re Great Fun

At the end of it all, Star Wars minifigures are great fun because they’re playthings. If you like to set up the figures with the built LEGO sets, they make for great pieces in a display shelf. They’re also fun to play with, especially if you have younger children to play with.


Star Wars is definitely a massive franchise, with an even bigger fanbase. This means it’s a huge market that’s perfect for selling merch, such as minifigures. Because the Star Wars fanbase is very passionate, these minifigures do quite well, to the point that they’ve become collectibles. All in all, there’s a lot of fun to be had with these pieces, and a lot of surprises with the different designs each characters come in.
