In recent years, Mandalorian warriors have taken the Star Wars universe by storm. Though Star Wars fans already had Boba Fett in the original trilogy and Jango Fett in the prequel trilogy, it was animated shows like The Clone Wars and Rebels that paved the way for live action shows like The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. The LEGO Group has released many Mandalorian minifigures, but five stand out from the rest.
Honourable mention – Jango Fett
The father of Boba Fett and the genetic template for all the Clone Troopers in Star Wars, how could Jango Fett not have been included in this list? Many LEGO fans might even find themselves ranking this minifigure higher on this list. This version appears in 75015 Corporate Alliance Tank Droid. With that out of the way, here are Blocks’ picks for the top five best LEGO Mandalorian minifigures…
An original character who first appeared in the second season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Pre Vizsla can be found in only one LEGO set – 9525 Pre Vizsla’s Mandalorian Fighter. The leader of the Mandalorian group Death Watch, Pre Vizsla sports a small, printed cape that bears the Death Watch insignia. This minifigure’s torso, leg, and head print are accurate to the character in the show, but the nicely printed helmet and matching jetpack are the best parts. Years before LEGO fans would see Moff Gideon wield the Darksaber in 2021’s 75315 Imperial Lighter Cruiser, Pre Vizsla already had it back in 2013.

The star of the live action show, The Mandalorian, the beskar steel clad version of Din Djarin features exceptional detail. His torso, legs and even arms are nicely printed – the armour pops with its metallic shine. The arm printing alone is enough to make this minifigure stand out from the other Mandalorians. There exist two variants of the same figure – one with a cape (75299 Trouble on Tatooine, 75312 Boba Fett’s Starship, and 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser) and one with a jetpack (75319 The Armorer’s Mandalorian Forge).
Included in 75316 Mandalorian Starfighter, Gar Saxon chose to be loyal to Maul, and as a result his armour got a makeover. Now sporting a combination of red, grey, and black, Saxon looks almost as awesome as his tattooed Sith leader. His helmet alone is an impressive element – its four horns offer a more menacing look, plus the opacity of the yellow print for the visor is well done. This minifigure is overall one of the coolest looking Star Wars minifigures in recent times.
A character LEGO Star Wars fans have been waiting for since her debut in the fourth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Bo-Katan Kryze appears for the first time alongside Gar Saxon in 75316 Mandalorian Starfighter. Bo-Katan served as a member of Death Watch alongside Pre Vizsla and would go on to play an important role in The Clone Wars series finale. The printed helmet features the intricate design of the Night Owl type helmet, which is only worn by female Mandalorians. This specific version of the character sports a printed headband, which matches her season seven appearance.
The first Manalorian seen by Star Wars fans way back in The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett has become one of the most popular Star Wars characters of all time. There have been numerous versions of the iconic character released by the LEGO Group over the years, but the Boba Fett minifigure included in 75060 Slave 1 is one of the best. While leg and torso print have become expected, the shiny arm printing takes this minifigure to the next level. The overall colour palette of greens, reds, brown, and bits of yellow is entirely unique to Boba Fett – he even features a cape and a jetpack! To top it off, the 75060 version features an exclusive head print with a smirk.
With The Book of Boba Fett show reaching its conclusion, and season three of The Mandalorian on the way, Mandalorian minifigures will only continue to increase in popularity. Now is as good a time as ever to start building your LEGO Mandalorian minifigure collection.
