LEGO Star Wars 75326 Boba Fett’s Throne Room from The Book of Boba Fett [Review]

Teased at the end of the previous season of The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett recently wrapped up its limited run on Disney+. While not all limited Star Wars TV series get the LEGO Star Wars treatment, LEGO recently announced two LEGO Star Wars sets from The Book of Boba Fett. The first sets are already starting to show up in the wild, and we recently picked up 75326 Boba Fett’s Throne Room from one of the large warehouse stores. Scheduled for release on March 1st, the set includes 732 pieces with 7 minifigs and will retail for US $99.99 | CAN $129.99 | UK £89.99 and is available for pre-order from LEGO.com now.

If you’re interested in a review of this LEGO Star Wars set, we’ll be assuming you’ve already seen the TV series. Minor spoilers ahead!

Jet pack jumps perplex jealous Pykes.

Jonas Kramm has been doing a series of vignette builds to commemorate the induvial episodes of The Book of Boba Fett. His latest features Boba Fett and Din Djarin teaming up in the final episode’s climatic end battle. Rocketing upwards in their jetpacks, Boba and Din have gained the high ground in their battle against the Pyke Syndicate. Jonas’s vignette perfectly captures the feel of the architecture in the city of Mos Espa, from the arched doorway to the well-greebled moisture vaporator. And the angle of the photo makes it feel like the two Mandalorians are hanging in the air like magic. But, if this build is for the last episode, does it mean no more vignettes are coming our way? Fear not. You can relive the best parts of the show through builds from Jonas and more right here.

Boba & Mando Jetpack Action

This 5,000+ piece, 6+ pound Slave-1 is worth risking a disintegration for.

As Disney+’s The Book of Boba Fett comes to a close, it’s a fitting time to stop and take a look back to our first introduction of the bounty hunter who began our love affair with the Mandalorians – The Empire Strikes Back*. And who better to be our guide than Hannes “Marshal Banana” Tscharner? Hannes has previously brought us amazing renditions of other Star Wars vehicles like the Millennium Falcon and the Jawa Sandcrawler. But this time, Hannes teamed up with builder Kevin J. Walter aka Skywalter with the goal of creating the most accurate Slave-1 model ever built in LEGO. Kevin is no stranger to IP spaceship builds himself, and has previously wowed us with his Stargate and Star Trek work. The Slave 1 took the pair a year and a half to complete. But, like any bounty hunter worth the price, they delivered on their goal with stunning results. So, without further ado, let’s take a tour of this Empire-era Firespray-31.

*Yes, I know that Boba technically first appeared in the Holiday Special. But that’s not canon. Just click here to see the ship. Geez.

Something wizard this way comes!

Following last week’s episode of The Mandalorian season 2.5—I mean The Book of Boba Fett, LEGO builders across the galaxy got their grey bricks out to recreate a certain starfighter. Builder Jonas Kramm took a different route and built a follow-up to his previous vignette from the series. In this small diorama, The Mandalorian is offered a new ship in Peli Motto’s garage. While he didn’t build the entire vehicle, Jonas focuses on the discovery of a partial ship hiding under tattered cloth. What starfighter could that be?

A new ship for Mando

Is it a Porax-38, a variant of which we saw in the “prison break” episode of The Mandalorian season 1? Or is it what we think it is? Jonas keeps the mystery and suspense alive by only building a dismantled engine hiding under a Silent Mary sail piece. Various clutter complete the diorama, such as grey and silver greebly pieces representing spaceship parts and two droids, one of which is a BD unit that people who have played Jedi: Fallen Order will recognise.

As The Book of Boba Fett is about to wrap up, we wonder what other scenes Jonas will build next.

See you, space elephant

Ah, Banthas. Glorious space creatures. Portrayed by elephants during the filming of Star Wars (1977) they serve as mounts for the fearsome Tusken Raiders, natives of Tatooine. And now they are ridden by a certain helmeted fan-favourite character, minus the helmet (and the character that never was.) This small desert diorama by KevFett2011 (no relation) showcases a scene from the first episode of new Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett.

The Sarlaccbuster Armor – coming to a Star Wars toy aisle near you?

As we all patiently await the premiere of The Book of Boba Fett, builder Greg Dalink gives us a hint of what might have been for the intergalactic bounty hunter if the Outer Rim met Pacific Rim. There’s no need to worry about the Sarlacc Pit when you’re piloting a giant mech too big to fit inside. Mechs aren’t a common piece of tech in Star Wars, but Greg’s done an amazing job of creating one that feels like part of that universe. Not only does it faithfully resemble its pilot, but it’s covered in the perfect amount of greeble detail. And touches like the tattered cape give it that dirty and well-worn feel that so much of the best Star Wars production design has.

“I will not give up my favorite decoration.”

There’s been a sharp increase in the amount of mosaic builds we’ve seen since LEGO debuted their Art series last year. But The Middle Brick has taken the art of LEGO mosaic to a new dimension with The Bounty Hunter, a closeup shot of famed Star Wars fiend Boba Fett.

This piece packs a significant amount of detail, and a subtle 3D effect, into its frame thanks to a unique layered approach. The first layer renders the background in standard tiles, while the second and third layers build up the main subject. The final result may not be as detailed as a man frozen in carbonite, but it’s close.

I seek an audience with Your Greatness to bargain for Solo’s life

Luke Skywalker was dedicated to getting his friends back at all costs. Star Wars fans share in that dedication when constructing their detailed reproductions of scenes from the series. Here, Anthony shows us an excellent slice of Jabba’s Palace from an iconic scene in the Return of the Jedi. The detailing captures the throne room well and I love the bottles with spilled liquid along the edges of the display. I also enjoy how Anthony decided to portray the scene. On top of the notable characters, the builder staged the display at a great scale and in a way that evokes some emotion. Having Luke’s back to the viewer helps us imagine that we are in Luke’s place, facing down a wretched scumlord holding our friends captive. Paired with the dramatic irony of knowing what’s in store for our hero, I think it helps add a feeling to the model that hits me right in the nostalgia.

Boba Fett’s New Chapter

Depending on your point of view, there is something strange about seeing Boba Fett on a throne. The royalty position is a rare sight for the bounty hunter, who firmly declared that he is a simple man, like his father, Jango Fett. Well, let this image marinate until we learn more about his occupation of Jabba the Hutt’s palace.

Boba Fett - Hail to the King

Robert Maier makes a statement through the build’s title “Hail to the King.” The skiff guard (from 2017’s Desert Skiff Escape set) learns the hard way after encountering Boba Fett and the sharp-shooting assassin, Fennec Shand. Overall, the arched molding around the palace is an impressive display of symmetry. The base of the platform is lined with reddish brown Modified 1 x 1 Rounded with Bar Handle plates. They symbolize the head sculptures on Jabba’s throne. Ahem, we mean Boba Fett’s throne. There’s a new king in town. Check out Robert’s previous build here.

Who’s your favorite bounty hunter?

Although he may have started as a secondary role in the trilogy’s middle child, there’s no denying Boba Fett is the king of the Star Wars bounty hunters. LEGO versions of the man in Mandalorian armor abound, whether it’s an official helmet or BrickHeadz, or one of the myriad fan creations, we Star Wars fans can’t seem to get enough of Fett. And here with one more version that’s almost as cool as the caped mercenary himself is Letranger Absurde. This enormous brick-built figure stands more than a foot tall and has all the details right down to the braid over his right shoulder. Sadly, Letranger has released only this single image, so we can’t get a good look at one of Fett’s coolest tools: the jetpack.

LEGO Star Wars helmets: 75274 TIE Pilot, 75276 Stormtrooper, & 75277 Boba Fett [Review]

Twenty-one years and around 700 sets after its inception, the LEGO Star Wars theme has done something new. It has introduced LEGO sets with an age rating of 18+. No, they’re not risque models of Princess Leia, merely display models clearly targeting adult collectors who want display items for their mantle. Few LEGO themes have embraced adult collectors the way the Star Wars line has. With the multi-generational, massive fanbase for Star Wars, this isn’t surprising, since now more than 40 years after the original film there are certainly more Star Wars fans over the age of 18 than under it. And this focus on adult fans isn’t new. Back in 2001, LEGO introduced the Ultimate Collector Series, kicking off not just with an X-wing and TIE Interceptor, but also an 1800-piece bust of Darth Maul. Now LEGO has introduced a trio of new mantle decorations in the form of three iconic helmets from the Star Wars universe:
75274 TIE Pilot Helmet | 724 pcs | US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99
75276 Stormtrooper Helmet | 647 pcs | US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99
75277 Boba Fett Helmet | 625 | US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99

All three of the Star Wars helmets are available now, and run for the same price with around 600-700 pieces. So what makes these new sets worthy of an 18+ rating? Spoiler alert: nothing. However, that aside, let’s see how the sets stack up.
