What better way to celebrate the return of the Star Wars galaxy’s greatest bounty hunter to the screen than to look at his best sets? The LEGO Group has released a wide range of diverse Star Wars products featuring Boba Fett. From various brick-built versions of the clone’s iconic ship, Slave I, to different interpretations of the famous bounty hunter, here are the top seven Boba Fett-centric LEGO sets.
7144 Slave I
Released back in the year 2000, 7144 Slave I retailed for only $20.00. This was the first ever LEGO rendition of the character’s ship, and due to its age appears crude compared to other Slave I sets on this list. Even so, 7144 will forever hold its place as the first set to include an official LEGO Boba Fett minifigure, which featured a specialized helmet/jetpack mould for the first time.
41629 Boba Fett
Released in 2018 and retailing for just $9.99, 41629 Boba Fett is the cheapest entry on our list. Part of the LEGO BrickHeadz theme, 41629 captures the look of Boba Fett with just 161 pieces. Fans with a keen eye will notice the blue jetpack this version of Boba Fett has, which matches his appearance in Return of the Jedi.

Brand new for 2021, 75312 Boba Fett’s Starship costs $49.99 and is available now. While much smaller compared to the other Slave I models on this list, 75312 packs in plenty of detail and even comes with a small vehicle that doubles as a display stand. This Boba Fett minifigure is based on his dramatic return appearance from Season 2 of The Mandalorian.
75533 Boba Fett
The only fully articulated Boba Fett action figure can be found in 2018’s 75533 Boba Fett. Part of the LEGO Star Wars buildable figures subtheme, 75533 retailed for $29.99 and featured 13 points of articulation. Accessories and features include a moving viewfinder on his helmet, spring loaded blaster, firing jetpack, exclusive helmet mould and a cloth cape.
75243 Slave I 20th Anniversary Edition
Released in 2019 for $119.99, 75243 Slave I 20th Anniversary Edition is widely viewed by LEGO fans to be one of the best minifigure scaled Slave I sets in recent years. 75243 balances detail and play, including minifigures such as Zuckuss and 4-LOM, who complete the iconic lineup of bounty hunters seen in The Empire Strikes Back. 75243 can be viewed as a successor to 2011’s 8097 Slave I, the set that the modern Boba Fett/Mandalorian helmets come from.
Released in 2020 and available now, 75277 Boba Fett Helmet faithfully recreates Boba Fett’s Mandalorian helmet. For $59.99, the build is solid and includes a display stand with a printed plaque. One of the few LEGO buildable helmets to include movement, 75277 allows you to lower Boba’s viewfinder for an alternate display look. Overall, 75277 makes for a stellar display piece, so it’s worth getting hold of before it retires.
75060 Slave I
2015 brought what many consider to be the best LEGO Slave I ever immortalised in the brick – 75060 Slave I. Retailing at $199.99, this Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) ship is a behemoth of a set, containing 1,996 pieces. 75060 remains unmatched in detail, scaling, accuracy, and features a unique clear canopy piece. Unless another UCS Slave I is produced by The LEGO Group, 75060 will remain the essential model of Boba Fett’s iconic ship.
Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett is expected to land on Disney+ this December. At the time of writing, there has been no announcement of sets based on the show, but you can get in the spirit by recreating Boba’s new throne as seen in the tease – the parts list is here, you can buy the bricks here and the instructions are in Blocks Issue 82.
