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!
Starwars.com revealed on their YouTube channel earlier today a new Star Wars Mandalorian LEGO set featuring a scene titled Trouble on Tatooine with two vehicles and three figures. The weekly segment for the channel that covers all things Star Wars updates including merchandise and toys and games.

Who could forget all of the valiant efforts of IG-11 during season one of Disney’s streaming series The Mandalorian? With this LEGO model, SPARKART! reminds us all of IG-11’s commitment to his programming: to nurse and protect everyone’s favorite child.
We’ve got a brick-built speeder, brick-built IG droid, and even a brick-built child in this vignette. The builder utilizes some small and pretty common elements such as slopes, wing pieces, bricks, 1×1 cones, and cylinders to create a pretty sleek white and grey imperial speeder. The limited color scheme for the speeder and droid allow the sand green and tan colored elements utilized for the child portion of the build to really pop against the rest of the model. Overall this is a great build capturing an intense moment in the series.
First off to start, this LEGO vignette from the hit series The Mandalorian built by Kevin is a spoiler-free scene since it appeared in the promotional trailer for the second season. Unsurprisingly the show is continuing to crank out inspiration for LEGO builders and vignette creators.
A WWE or UFC inspired setting with two Gamorreans duking it out to presumably the death is shown both on the screen and in Kevin’s model. Long poles connected to 1×1 jumpers secure the ring, comprised of tiling and bricks laid on top of more tiling and plate pieces of varying shapes and sizes. Above the ring are some flags utilizing many different elements such as clip pieces, slopes, and tiles. Of course, this vignette is minifigure heavy. It showcases Kevin’s wonderful collection of Star Wars alien species minifigures, including the fighting Gamorreans, a Twi-lek, a Gran, a Mon Calamari, and an Ithorian, to name a few. As a whole, Kevin’s scene certainly captures this moment in the streaming series very well with its sense of crowdedness and recreation of event lighting.
How many pieces does it take to build a great LEGO creation? Not a lot if you’ve got a great imagination and a little bit of skill. This tiny vignette by Dan Ko of a Bantha on the sands of Tatooine consists of only around 20 pieces, but it’s perfect. The brown minifigure hair forms the furry body of the poor Bantha tied up as bait, which is a scene that may look familiar to fans of The Mandalorian. The tauntaun horns stand-in for the pack animal’s giant curved horns and a black wand serves as the hitching post.
New episodes of the Disney+ Star Wars streaming series The Mandalorian are finally here, but with this LEGO model and scene by Wesley, let’s go back down memory lane to the moment that changed the lives of Star Wars spectators everywhere.
The scene in which the Child, also known as “Baby Yoda”, was revealed was definitely a huge moment for the franchise. Wesley recreates the scene by fashioning a a LEGO Mandalorian in the style of a buildable figure and an ingeniously minimal build of the Child in his pram. The Child literally consists of a sand green toothed 1×1 and a sand green 1×1 with clip. A larger-scaled IG droid utilizing some bigger cylindrical elements is also seen collapsed in the background of this fully brick-built scene. Wesley definitely captured this big moment in Star Wars history very well through the LEGO medium and excellent photography.
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!
The highly anticipated second season of The Mandalorian launches today on Disney+, so now seems as good a time as any to take a closer look at the Razor Crest, which was finally released on August 31st after selling out almost immediately nearly six months earlier via preorders. The set is now back in stock online (US $129.99 | CAN $159.99 | UK £119.99), built from 1,023 pieces and featuring the Mandalorian himself, Greef Karga, IG-11, a Scout Trooper, and the Child.

Season two of the Mandalorian is right around the corner, and fabulous LEGO creations inspired by the show keep on coming. Neil and Joanne Snowball return with their mosaic of the titular character to accompany their previous mosaic of the true star of the show.
Depicting our hero from the first half of season 1, this recreation of Mando gives off a real comic book or 8-bit videogame aesthetic. And even with that simple static style, an incredible sense of motion is conveyed: it’s obvious that he’s walking towards you, his cape blowing in the wind. Perhaps you have something he wants. Perhaps you should let that precious baby Yoda go. Perhaps you should listen up, so you don’t get disintegrated by that Amban phase-pulse blaster on Mando’s back. Could this be a scene from season 2? Only time will tell.

If there’s just one thing carefully-crafted scientific data has proven, it’s that if you post something to do with The Child (aka Baby Yoda) from The Mandalorian, you’ll get all the clickity-clicks and likety-likes in the world. Take this cute little LEGO chap built by Thomas Lundström. While he is small and not overly complex, you will still go ga-ga for the little scoundrel. See, you can’t resist clicking “like”! I can just see our views skyrocketing already.

Ever since Star Wars: The Mandalorian debuted on Disney+ last year, the adorable, nameless alien has set the internet on fire. Simply called “The Child” in the show, fans have dubbed the green toddler Baby Yoda, and to help protect season 1’s plot, Disney didn’t license any toys of the character until this year. Now LEGO is diving into the merchandising, providing fans with three different scales of Baby Yoda in anticipation of season 2. The latest, being officially revealed today (though images have been circulating for awhile), is this 1,073-piece buildable figure. 75318 The Child will retail for US $79.99 | CAN $99.99 | UK £69.99, and will be available for pre-order starting October 21, and will release on October 30 in conjunction with The Mandalorian season 2 debut. We’ll be publishing LEGO’s official press release and images later today, but since we have the set in hand, we wanted to kick it off with a full review instead.
