The first Lego Star Wars set was released more than two decades ago, and since then the range has gone on to become the most popular in the entire Lego collection. 

There have been Lego Star Wars sets themed around the complete Star Wars saga. From buildable AT-ATs as seen at the Battle of Hoth to a blocky recreation of the showdown between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi on the lava planet of Mustafar. Almost every character, location, and iconic moment in the Star Wars canon has been immortalized in Lego form. 

We're in between feature films right now, but that hasn’t stopped Lego from pumping out plenty of new kits that would make for a perfect holiday gift for kids — and kids at heart — alike. There are also sets that tie into recent Disney Plus series like The Mandalorian, which have proved to be very popular. 

Below is a selection of the best Lego Star Wars sets currently available. Make sure to regularly check back, the holiday season isn't that far off and we expect several of these sets will receive significant price drops as part of retailers' Black Friday deals.
