I’m pretty sure we’re contractually obligated to feature LEGO creations from The Mandalorian every once in a while. I think it staves off a Mythosaur rampage or something. Thankfully, the aptly-named KevFett2011 is consistently willing to oblige us. This time we’re taken to Madalore where our hero needs to atone for taking off his helmet too many times during all the mushy scenes. Seems from now on we ain’t seeing Din Djarin’s beautiful, beautiful face anymore unless you tune in to that other channel where he’s fighting mushroom people. I’m digging Kev’s rugged Mandalore trinitite-strewn terrain and the added third foot on R5-D4 is a nice touch. I never get tired of seeing Mando’s hot-rodded N-1, either. Do you love The Mandalorian as much as we do? Then click the little blue link for more Mando goodness. This is the way.
While it is true we all soiled our collective Beskar pants at the awesomeness that is The Mandalorian’s new hot-rodded N-1 Starfighter, it’s nice to see someone show a little love for the original version. Ciamosław Ciamek has rendered a handsome LEGO N-1 in its original yellow and gray (chrome if you squint) color scheme. Artoo sits in his Astromech station while cute little Anakin pilots the craft before he got all huge and brooding. It’s certainly one of the more stand-out designs from the Clone Wars era.
LEGO builder Tim Goddard proves you don’t need a metric ton of bricks to present an epic scene from Star Wars. Here this cute little N-1 Starfighter has equally cute Vulture Droids on its tail. It’s a dicey predicament to be sure but I have faith in the N-1 pilot (is it Anakin?) and their ability to get out of any sticky situation. Tim Goddard has gotten into plenty of sticky situations as of late and somehow most ended up tiny and cute. Click the tiny and cute blue link to see what I mean.
It’s no spoiler at this point that the Mandalorian has got a new upcycled ship. Ironically, 75325 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter is easily the most anticipated set from The Book of Boba Fett, bringing us Din Djarin’s salvaged and upgraded ship. The set also includes the first-ever version of Din Djarin with a face print, along with the first version of Peli Motto and a BD Droid. Grogu is, of course, also included. The 412-piece set will be available starting June 1 for US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99.
The LEGO Group sent The Brothers Brick an early copy of this set for review. Providing TBB with products for review guarantees neither coverage nor positive reviews.

If you haven’t seen the season finale of The Book of Boba Fett then give this LEGO ship by Alex Jones a like or a heart and move on without reading ahead. But be sure to catch it when you can. If you have seen it then oh boy! A couple of episodes back when Peli revealed the refurbished N-1 Starfighter she was working on for Mando we got just a little taste of foreshadowing. Seeing the pre-Empire ship was cool enough in itself. It was admittedly not the replacement for the Razorcrest Mando had hoped for at first but with it being souped-up and off-the-grid like a refurbished one-of-a-kind classic hot rod, he warmed up to it. However, the bubble dome in place of where an Astromech would go… clued us in that someday Grogu would sit there. Fast forward to the last scene of the final episode and we were served a heaping albeit adorable helping of fan service!
If you’ve seen the show, then join in on all the excitement to see what other builders have done in The Book of Boba Fett archives.
If you take a stroll through my post history, you’ll see that two things I love are Star Wars and microscale. So Eli Willsea hits out of the park, in my book, combining the two for his Theed Hanger. Zeroing in on N-1 Starfighter, you’ll see that nifty parts usage abounds.
Whether it’s the blades as the front fuselage, the paint cans, the switch track throw, and minifigure hands as engines, or the simple silver cupcake icing swirl as an astromech droid, this ship is ready to leave the hanger. A hanger, which contrasting the minute detail of the fighter, stays true to the large and blockyness of Theed. But as simple as the structure might appear, it is also rife with neat ways of using pieces, such as the old school wheels as the top and bottom of the columns.
The Nubian N-1 starfighter seen in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace wasn’t the only yellow starfighter that Anakin ever flew, but it was the first. In this model by Kit Bricksto there are a few nice details worth pointing out. First, there is the subtly angled area between the main fuselage and the wings, which matches up quite nicely with the canopy. Cheese slopes are used to create a near-circular engine, a very close match to the on-screen inspiration. Lastly, the shaping of the pointed rear of the craft is a great alternative to more common large sloped parts.
