When The Mandalorian series began to air in 2019, one of the things that captured many fans’ hearts right off the bat (including my own) was Din Djarin’s battered bounty hunter vessel the Razor Crest. It fit perfectly into the famously “lived-in” Star Wars universe of the original trilogy, and so it’s fitting that 75331 The Razor Crest is the first vehicle from outside the movie trilogies to receive the Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) treatment. At 28 inches long (72cm), the UCS Razor Crest includes 6,187 pieces and features minifigures of Din Djarin, Kuiil, a Mythrol, Grogu, along with a brick-built blurrg. Revealed just a few days ago, the set will retail for US $599.99 | CAN $759.99 | UK £519.99 and will be available Oct. 3 for VIP members with general availability Oct. 7.

Today LEGO has revealed 75331 The Razor Crest as the next Ultimately Collector Series (UCS) set in the Star Wars lineup. The infamous bounty hunter’s ship from The Mandalorian marks the first vehicle from one of Disney’s Star Wars TV series to get the UCS treatment. With 6,187 pieces and 28 inches (72 cm) in length, the new ship is in minifigure scale, dwarfing the previous 75292 Razor Crest set from 2020. The set will include Din Djarin, Grogu, Kuiil on a brick-built blurrg, and a Mythrol prisoner. It also features a full interior with multiple removable hull sections for access. It will retail for US $599.99 | CAN $759.99 | UK £519.99 and will be available for LEGO VIP members starting Oct. 3, with general availability following Oct. 7.
The hit Star Wars series The Mandalorian premiered on Disney+ in 2019 introducing us to an instantly iconic ship, the pre-clone wars era starship known as the Razor Crest. And before you make your jokes about a microscale model of the Razor Crest really just being a pile of loose parts, I like to remember her in her prime.
Wait, what am I saying? From the very first episode, she’s been grabbed by a space walrus, scrapped by Jawas, shot at, jumped on by space spiders, dunked in the sea, shot at again, and more. But if you want to remember her as she once was, soaring through the sky over Navarro blasting TIE fighters to bits, you can follow along with these instructions for a desktop model, designed by me. It even includes a poseable stand! Click here to download the LEGO Razor Crest Instructions by Daniel Fortine
Whether you need to chase down two-bit scoundrels who owe money or tool around the galaxy with your foster kid in the Star Wars equivalent of a ’96 Nissan Stanza, you’re going to need the right equipment. First, you need a cool outfit, preferably one you’ll wear your entire life, even if you put on a few post-Sarlaac pounds. Next, you’ll need a bucket on your head and a credo about not talking much and never showing your face except during some mushy parts. Lastly, you’re going to need a sweet spaceship and that’s where LEGO builder Tim Goddard comes in. Here we see Boba Fett and his Slave I as well as “Mando” from The Mandolorian with his Razor Crest. Tim makes excellent use of both old and new gray bits for that lived-in mottled effect.
We’ve featured Tim’s Razor Crest before but with the added stands and posed next to his new Slave I, we couldn’t resist bringing it out again for an encore performance.
The Razor Crest is now available for backorder on LEGO US and CAN online stores retailing at US $129.99 and CAN $159.99 respectively. In case you’re wondering what’s the big deal about this Star Wars vehicle, the spoiler-free answer is the Razor Crest leaves a mind-blowing impression in the second season that makes it a little more sought after now for not only fans and likely LEGO investors.
If you’re unable to add it to your cart, it’s likely if you’re reading this a little later and they’re gone for now. The good news is, if you follow us on Facebook, we’ll make further announcements when it is available again. Alternatively, you may do want to check availability on Amazon.
While waiting for the Razor Crest to arrive, remember to check out our review of this set. I have spoken.
The Razor Crest is now available on Amazon (US) at its regular retail price.

By this point, I’m pretty sure everyone and their mother has watched The Mandalorian (except my own mother, who only watches PBS). It’s a popular show, and for a good reason: it takes the western-cowboy movie vibes of A New Hope and runs with it, letting us see a grittier side of everybody’s favorite space fairy tale kingdom. It’s got a cute little Yoda-species kid, a more fleshed-out version of the mysterious Mandalorian Boba Fett, and plenty of epic gunfights. As a result, the spaceship that hauls around Mando (a.k.a. Din Djarin), the Razor Crest, has become almost as recognizable as the TIE Fighter or the X-Wing. And just like those venerable ships, the Razor Crest has received the epic treatment from Jarek Książczyk (Jerac), a master Star Wars LEGO builder.
Happy holidays to all of our fellow LEGO builders! As is tradition, we at The Brothers Brick will be opening our advent calendars as we count down to Christmas. We’ll also be sharing commentary on each one, which will be both insightful and hilarious!
This year we have new Harry Potter, Star Wars, City and Friends advent calendars to open. We will be sharing images of the new calendars every day through Christmas. Let’s see what there is to open on Day 5!
The Razor Crest is fast becoming one of the most recognized ships in a galaxy far, far away since the Millenium Falcon first blasted off the surface of Tatooine. Ever since the premiere of The Mandalorian last year on Disney+, The Razor Crest has taken a beating, but she keeps on going. This microscale model by Tim Goddard has nailed a number of details at a small scale. Take the landing gear, which is more accurate than the official LEGO set.
The back of the ship is also very well sculpted, and those engines are spot on!
As season 2 of The Mandalorian unfolds, we’ll likely see more and more custom LEGO creations of starships and characters of the show. An example of this is builder flambo14‘s version of the Razor Crest.
Right away, I see how flambo14 changes things up from other versions of the Razor Crest by using the large cockpit piece. I like it so much that I’d like to see the real Razor Crest utilize that large of a viewport.
The engines are smoothly built, just like the actual model we see in the show. I admire how flambo14 made narrow connections between the engines and the wings. The stand keeps the Razor Crest on an angle, showcasing the exciting flights both towards and away from danger.
The question is, will the Mandalorian fly the Razor Crest to bring The Child to his species or find Jedi? We’ll have to watch to find out!
If you haven’t seen the new live-action Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, streaming on Disney+, you need to stop reading this right now and go check it out. Seriously. Okay, you’re back? Great, let’s continue. One of the coolest things about the show, in my opinion, is the hero’s ship. The Razorcrest looks amazing on the show, due in part to the fact that it is a model, a real-life hold in your hands and swoosh across your bedroom model. Now you can build your very own Razorcrest chibi style, thanks to these instructions by hachiroku24.
Live from the show floor at Toy Fair New York, we have close-up images of 75292 The Razor Crest and BrickHeadz 75317 The Mandalorian & The Child. Over the past two weeks, LEGO unveiled its upcoming sets based on The Mandalorian, Disney+’s popular series placed within the Star Wars universe, and now we have a hands-on look.
The BrickHeadz set consists of 295 pieces, and the Razor Crest consists of 1,023 pieces, including a Baby Yoda minifigure. They are slated for release on Aug. 1st and Sept. 1st respectively, though the Razor Crest is currently available to preorder for US $129.99 | CAN $159.99 | UK £119.99 and will be a LEGO Store and Amazon exclusive when it releases Sept. 1.
