Five more Jedi characters fans need as LEGO Star Wars minifigures

There are so many amazing Jedi characters in the Star Wars universe that haven’t been released as LEGO minifigures that one list can’t contain them all – here are another five Jedi who deserve their own LEGO character.

Just as every day it seems another Jedi survived Order 66, there are plenty of other Jedi characters who could have been included on the five Jedi fans need as LEGO characters list. So Blocks, the monthly LEGO magazine, is once more diving into the Jedi Archives to provide five more Jedi who should receive the LEGO minifigure treatment.  

If you haven’t seen all of the Star Wars animation, then watch out for spoilers below.

Jocasta Nu

To those who have seen Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, Jocasta Nu is the rather sharp librarian of the Jedi Archives – she tells Obi-Wan Kenobi that if Kamino isn’t in the archives, then it doesn’t exist. How wrong she was, but in other media she’s had an increased role, first appearing in several episodes of The Clone Wars and then, more significantly, duelling against the Grand Inquisitor and Darth Vader following the fall of the Jedi Order in the Darth Vader comic-book series. 

Nu would make a particularly elegant figure. Figures like Aurora Sinistra and Madam Pince from the Harry Potter theme have shown that even minor characters can receive intricately detailed minifigures, and Nu’s robes would be no exception. If there’s ever a set of the Jedi Temple, she must surely appear. 

Tera Sinube

Tera Sinube always advised patience, although even he’s probably getting bored of waiting for his own minifigure. Sinube first appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars as one of Ahsoka’s many Jedi mentors – he helped her retrieve her lightsaber when it was stolen by a petty thief – and it was revealed during the Obi-Wan Kenobi series that his corpse was interred at Fortress Inquisitorius. 

This Cosian Jedi Master might need a specific moulded piece to capture his stoop, but the walking-stick-cum-lightsaber would certainly be different. Plus, this Master uses a light blue saber that borders on white, so he’d be a strikingly different Jedi all around.  

Cin Drallig

Cin Drallig was the Jedi Order’s Battlemaster and Chief of Security of the Jedi Temple – after the events of Operation Knightfall, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda stumble across a hologram recording that shows Drallig duelling Vader during the attack on the temple. 

Some older builders might remember Drallig as a particularly tough boss battle from the Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith videogame, and it’s about time a minifigure of this powerful Jedi Master be released. The figure need not be complicated – some grey hair printing alongside the straw colour would be nice – but it’d be great to finally get this Master in LEGO form.

Oppo Rancisis

You’d be forgiven for not knowing who Oppo Rancisis is – aside from small appearances in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and later seasons of The Clone Wars, he’s hardly been a major presence. Why is he on this list? Well, Rancisis’s story is not over, as it was revealed in a Darth Vader comic book that he survived Order 66 and remained a target of the Inquisitorius. 

Rancisis would also make for a Jedi minifigure unlike any one seen so far – he belongs to the Thisspiasian species, and had a long, snake-like body, four arms and a great big bushy beard. Quite how all of this is to be captured in minifigure form is to be seen, but, you have to admit, it’d be pretty awesome.  

Gungi

Wookiees have been vital to the Star Wars universe since the very beginning, and Gungi was a rare thing – a Wookiee Jedi. First introduced as a padawan in The Clone Wars, in which he made his lightsaber out of Brylark wood, it was revealed that Gungi also survived Order 66 when he came across the Bad Batch.  

Getting Gungi in minifigure form would mean a new, smaller Wookiee mould. Wookiee minifigures have been some of the most intricately detailed LEGO Star Wars characters – having another furry friend would be a real bonus.
