Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett has been exploring the galaxy’s most infamous bounty hunter after the events of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, tying in the story with The Mandalorian and answering questions fans have had for years. While the Disney+ series may return to the familiar sands of Tatooine, there’s new locations and vehicles that would be perfect for LEGO sets.
Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, is taking a look at what has come in the series so far that would make sets to impress even Fennec Shand.
Beware the Rancor pit though, as below are major SPOILERS for the first four chapters from The Book of Boba Fett!
While Tuskens have been around since A New Hope, their culture is built upon in this series, as Boba earns his place in a tribe of the Dune Sea. Their camp would make for a great little location set, with fabric elements for the tents, cooking fires with LEGO pots and pans, as well as the makeshift forge. A brick-built bantha could add some more playability, while a unique desert Boba Fett minifigure would have to be included alongside the main members of the tribe.
Inspired by real-life biker gangs of the 1960s, the colourful speeder-bikes would certainly make for an unusual Star Wars set. A bit like a classic Vespa motorcycle, the trickiest part of the design would be making the bikes appear to float, while still being stable, via transparent elements. Although half a dozen appear on-screen, the lead red and blue bikers would probably be the most popular. Drash’s minifigure would need a red printed arm to represent her mechanical modifications, while Skad would have to have his eye implant printed onto his face.

Racing across the sands of Tatooine as part of the Pyke Syndicate’s spice trade, the train from Chapter 2 could work as a set like 75217 Imperial Conveyex Transport. It’s shape is quite similar, though with big forward engines and more carriages would be a must. It would be an excuse for a lot more Pyke minifigures and if the price point was made higher then the Tuskens could also be included on their stolen speeder bikes.
While recuperating from his sarlacc wounds in Jabba’s former palace, Boba Fett makes use of a bacta tank. These have appeared before in the brick, most recently in 75203 Hoth Medical Chamber, so it wouldn’t be too difficult for the designers to modify it to be horizontal rather than vertical. A bacta tank Boba Fett would make for a very enticing exclusive minifigure, along with some brick-built droids to hold his armour.
It wouldn’t be Tatooine without a cantina. Yet Garsa Fwip’s Sanctuary isn’t a hive of scum and villainy, but instead a sophisticated bar and lounge. Style wise it could follow some elements from 75205 Mos Eisley Cantina, but with a unique bar and some printed table elements. Brick built foliage would help to add to the classy vibe, and fans definitely need a set containing Max Rebo as his minifigure hasn’t been seen since 2013.
These are just suggestions from the first half of The Book of Boba Fett, so there’s plenty more to come that could be transformed into the brick. Hopefully more tie-in sets will be announced soon!
