The 20 Best LEGO Star Wars Characters

This ain't your grandmother's list of the best Star Wars characters. We're going real high-tech here and divvying up the best characters from LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

Just a quick heads up not all of these are deemed the most powerful characters by any stretch. When it comes to rounding up the best LEGO Star Wars characters, usually it's the weirder, the better. You might think that a Wampa is a pretty formidable enemy, but in this version, he's actually just a big marshmallow who's terrified to walk down a Hoth hallway. In no specific order, these 20 are some of the best LEGO Star Wars characters to play as.

1. Salacious Crumb

To those who don't know this little Kowakian monkey-lizard well, it's Salacious B. Crumb to you. His inclusion and purpose in this game are the exact same as that in Return of the Jedi: just to look at, be confused about, and blindly love. Also, his strut in this game is one that you do not want to miss.

2. R2-D2 (Waiter)

Sure, zooming around as R2-D2 is great and all, but have you ever tried R2-D2 in waiter mode? The only difference is that a large tray is smacked on top of him, fit with drinks and glasses to serve those who wander by. Just try not to trip over Jabba's tail and spill anything.

3. Mouse Droid

While there aren't any flies (do flies even exist in Star Wars?) on the walls of the Death Star, mouse droids basically make up for that. The fastest, cutest droids in the galaxy can be found on this lovely, iconic space station, and their only purpose is to zip around and make tiny mouse droid noises.

4. Max Rebo

The ultimate bearer of good vibes, Max Rebo really can't do very much in this game, but after running around as a kind, blue elephant and spreading good cheer for a while, I'm hoping that this becomes a viable occupation in real life.

5. Jabba the Hutt

Slithering around as a massive, disgusting, hateful slug? LEGO has got you covered. And if you're ever sick of playing as Jabba, there's another member of the Hutt family to try out: Mamma the Hutt. Yes, I just typed that.

6. Luke Skywalker (With Yoda on His Back)

Luke is one of the most powerful Jedi around, but without his training with Yoda, where would he be? This character gives us the best of both worlds, as you get to play as Luke with a little extra bonus: Yoda is chilling on your back the entire time, offering tips and moral support, but mostly just hanging on for dear life.

7. Boba Fett

Boba Fett has almost every gadget you could ever need, as he wields a flamethrower, jetpack, blaster, and grappling hook. My only advice? Watch out for Sarlacc pits—and temporarily-blinded Han Solos.

8. Princess Leia

While we've got quite a few different Leias to choose from in The Skywalker Saga, the only real differences between them are purely with her outfits. Obviously, we had to throw it back to one of her best fits yet: the Hoth outfit. Sure, the cinnamon buns were the OG, but this one's the underrated icon.

9. Yarael Poof

You might not have heard of Yarael Poof, but there's a good chance you've seen some of his long-necked, spoon-sitting friends on Kamino in Attack of the Clones. Poof has four arms, two brains, a long neck, and has served on the Jedi High Council; all I've done today is write an article about LEGO Star Wars characters.

10. Wicket

Being one of the scavenger characters in The Skywalker Saga, our teddy bear buddy, Wicket, has quite a few tricks up his (little) sleeve. He can construct a breaker blaster, fly on a glider, and use a net launcher, and that's without even mentioning the adorable crew of Ewoks that he leads.

11. Jar Jar Binks

Meesa think that Jar Jar is the best character in all of LEGO land.

Obviously, I'm kidding. But I know, I know: not everyone is a big fan of Jar Jar Binks. However, for the sake of the silliness that's inherent within LEGO Star Wars, he fits in pretty perfectly. He's got a gait that's hard to miss and at one point is flown away on a spaceship simply because his long tongue got stuck in the door. What's not to love?

12. Darth Maul

He's got a double-sided lightsaber and cool makeup. That's all I need to say here.

13. Sy Snootles

Is Sy Snootles the OG template for Duchess from Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends? Perhaps. If this was the 2019 Met Gala's theme of Camp, Snootles would've taken home the golden trophy and wouldn't have even needed to dress up. Her absurdity makes her one of the greatest characters in this game.

14. Wampa

Being that it's LEGO Star Wars, our Wampa isn't nearly as vicious and angry this time around. Instead, he's kind of shy (aside from when he murders a tauntaun and almost kills Luke) and likes to keep to himself. Basically, playing as him means you get to run around like an enormous fluffball, which is all I've ever wanted.

15. Darth Vader (No Helmet)

Darth Vader was desperate for some much-needed Vitamin D, so the helmet had to go for just a little, revealing this timid, pale murderer. It's amazing how simply removing his helmet makes him that much more disarming. After all, he's just a guy in a suit, right?

16. Rancor

You're basically galloping around as a huge block of marble when you play as the Rancor in this game. In short, all of the LEGO citizens around you are acting like Sarah Paulson in that episode of American Horror Story.

17. Obi-Wan Kenobi

It wouldn't be a complete rundown of the best LEGO Star Wars characters without a mention of our old friend, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Here we have him in his oldest form, which is arguably his best; basically, Kenobi is one of the best to play as because he is the best.

18. IG-88

Our favorite robot-bounty-hunter king, IG-88, is one big, slab of metal who really doesn't hold back when it comes to locating his enemies. However, don't let him near water, because he'll break into a million tiny Lego pieces. And it'll be sad.

19. Grand Moff Tarkin

Sure, Grand Moff Tarkin might not be the most inventive person to play as, but the LEGO execution was incredible—those cheekbones? I mean, come on, Tarkin has cheekbones for days.

20. General Grievous

When he's not hacking up a lung, General Grievous is pretty fun to play as, given the fact that he's a massive robot creature with four arms and lightsabers to match. Just try your best not to get shot in the heart, or you'll burst into flames and shoot fire out of your eyes. Actually, that sounds sort of cool.
