Disney Plus’ flagship show, the Mandalorian, is returning to our screens on October 31st. Despite a global pandemic, the series was completed without any major production delays. What will happen to our heroes? We’ll just have to wait and see… In the meantime, to celebrate the release of Mandalorian Season 2, I thought I’d go through all the LEGO Mandalorian sets, minifigures and accessories.
Warning: This article contains spoilers for the show’s first season.
The Mandalorian introduced Star Wars fans to a slew of new fan favourite characters. Despite the show’s critical acclaim and large cult following, LEGO has only released four sets based on the hit series. What characters from the Mandalorian did LEGO depict in minifigure form and which characters have been neglected?
Din Djarin is the beskar clad Mandalorian bounty hunter. When we are first introduced to the character, his armour is a hodgepodge mess. LEGO depicted this version of the Mandalorian in two sets (set 75254, the AT-ST Raider and set 75292, The Razor Crest). I recommend upgrading this minifigure with a pair of FireStar Toys custom printed arms. The level of detail on the arms is incredible. You can actually identify a piece of Shore Trooper armour on the Mandalorian’s shoulder. Some AFOLs like to add Arealight Vambrace pieces to their LEGO Mandalorian minifigures. You can check out all Arealight’s Vambraces pieces here. As well as custom printed arms, you could consider equipping the Mandalorian with an Amban Phase Pulse Blaster and Gunfighter pistol.
In Chapter 3, The Sin, the Mandalorian upgrades his attire with Beskar armour plating. LEGO has yet to recreate this character variant in minifigure form. Fortunately, FireStar Toys has filled the void, producing a custom version of the character. This exclusive minifigure comes equipped with Vambraces, an Amban Phase-Pulse Blaster and a Gunfighter pistol.
Baby Yoda… ahem, I mean the Child is included in both set 75292, the Razor Crest and set 75318, The Child. I have a hunch that he will prove to be one of the most expensive LEGO minifigures. Unfortunately, LEGO hasn’t produced a baby carriage piece for him to float around in.
Played by the notorious Carl Weathers, Greef Karga was first introduced to fans in Chapter 1 of the Mandalorian. Karga is the treacherous leader of the bounty hunters’ guild. LEGO included a version of this double crossing criminal in set 75292, the Razor Crest. Greef carries a pair of unidentified blaster pistol. Until the weapon is named, I recommend choosing a blaster for Greef from FireStar Toys’ extensive weapons page.
If you aren’t impressed with LEGO’s version of Greef Karga, consider FireStar Toys custom printed version of the minifigure.
Former WWE fighter, Gina Carano first portrayed Cara Dune in Chapter 4, The Sanctuary. LEGO depicted the ex-rebel shock trooper, Cara Dune in set 75254, the AT-ST raider. Cara Dune’s blasters weren’t identified on the Wookieepedia page. Until her weapons are named, I recommend perusing FireStar Toys extensive weapons page and choosing a blaster piece for her.
Assassin turned babysitter, IG-11 was first included in set 75292, the Razor Crest. I recommend equipping the minifigure with both a E-11 and DLT-20A blaster piece.
Fun fact: IG-11 was voiced by legendary director, Taika Waititi.
Known only as the Client, this mysterious Imperial is desperate to acquire the baby. The Client had a sizeable role in Season 1, appearing in three different chapters. He was played by legendary director, Werner Herzog. Although LEGO hasn’t made the Client into a minifigure, FireStar Toys has produced an incredible custom printed version of the character. The minifigure comes with one of FireStar Toys custom printed Beskar Steel tile pieces and a Brickarms tracking fob piece.
Giancarlo Esposito played the fearsome Moff Gideon. FireStar Toys has produced a spectacular custom printed version of Moff Gideon. The figure’s complete with arm printing, cape and an Arealight Darksaber piece. Although a Darksaber piece is included with the minifigure, I recommend purchasing a grey hilt version.
Toro Calican was a rookie bounty hunter. Played by Jake Cannavale, Toro appeared in Chapter 5, the Gunslinger. Due to the character’s limited screen time, LEGO may never produce a Toro Calican minifigure. Fortunately, FireStar Toys has produced a custom version of the minifigure, perfect for any Calican fan. I recommend equipping Toro Calican with a DL-44 blaster as the weapon closely resembles Calican’s blaster.
Julia Jones played Omera in Chapter 4, The Sanctuary. She helped the Mandalorian defend her village from the brutal Klatooinian raiders. FireStar Toys created a great custom Omera minifigure. I suggest equipping Omera with a two scope Relby V10 rifle as she can be seen practising with the weapon in the show.
Ming-Na Wen played the lethal assassin, Fennec Shand. Although LEGO never created this minifigure, FireStar Toys has created a custom version of the of the character. In the show, Shand wields a modified MK-rifle. Unfortunately, custom blaster companies don’t produce this weapon. I recommend using the E-11 blaster included with the custom or selecting a weapon for her from the FireStar Toys’ weapons page.

As well as the main characters, the Mandalorian features a slew of background characters. From unnamed Mandalorians to the faceless Imperial military, this section of the article will examine all the LEGO Mandalorian minifigures that are so often overlooked and underappreciated.
Author’s note: The next section of the article adapts some paragraphs from my article on Equipping Imperial Stormtroopers. If you haven’t read it yet, please check it out. It took forever to research and write so I hope you enjoy it. If you’ve already read it, feel free to skip ahead to my paragraph on the Klatooinian raiders.
Imperial stormtroopers surround Moff on the Client’s base on Nevarro. LEGO has produced numerous versions of the classic Stormtrooper. The 2014 variant introduced a new helmet piece that is loved by many Star Wars fans to this day. In 2019 LEGO updated the Stormtrooper by giving it a dual moulded helmet. This helmet piece received significant backlash as AFOLs argued that the piece is oversized and stops you from turning the helmet. I don’t know which version I prefer. If you are a new collector, I suggest getting the newer version, as the older stormtroopers will only grow more expensive with time. Both versions of the Stormtrooper lack arm printing. Fortunately, FireStar Toys has you covered. They’ve produced awesome custom printed stormtrooper arms that are perfect for any imperial legion.
As well as carrying the iconic E-11 blaster, Stormtroopers were known to wield SE-14R, T-21, DLT-20A and DLT-19 blaster rifles. Brickarms has made highly detailed versions of all these blasters (the comparison image above only features Brickarms weapons). Other custom companies produce Star Wars blasters, but few of them produce the vast range that Brickarms manufactures. Still, it is worth checking out other custom weapon companies on the FireStar Toys weapons page as many of them produce their own versions of these weapons. All the companies on that page produce great products that are worth checking out.
Death Troopers were an elite branch of stormtroopers. They were often tasked with protecting significant imperial officers or deployed to guard classified imperial projects. LEGO produced two different types of Death Trooper. The 2016 variant had more detailed torso printing and a fabric pauldron piece. The 2017 variant was slightly less detailed but it came in a much cheaper set. Both these minifigures would benefit from a pair of FireStar Toys’ custom printed Death Trooper arm pieces.
As well as carrying the legendary E-11D, Death Troopers were known to wield SE-14 pistols, DLT-19 and DLT-19D heavy blaster rifles. Brickarms produces custom parts for all of these weapons, making it easy for fans to equip Death Troopers with movie-accurate weapons.
Two evil Scout Troopers kill Kuill and kidnap the Child. The latest version of the LEGO Scout Trooper was introduced in 2019’s Action Battle on Endor set. This minifigure is particularly popular as the new dual moulded helmet adds a whole new level of realism to the figure. I recommend combining this minifigure with a pair of Patrol Trooper arms to complete the look.
Scout Troopers use a wide variety of blasters. DLT-20A and DLT-19X rifles were used for long-range combat whilst EC-17 and EE-4 pistols were used for close-range skirmishes. Brickarms produces three of the four weapons. Unfortunately, none of the major custom companies produce EE-4 blaster pieces (please correct me in the comments if I’m wrong).
In Chapter 8, a cruel Incinerator Trooper attempts to burn Mando and the Child to a crisp. LEGO has yet to make an Incinerator Trooper minifigure. FireStar Toys has filled the void by producing an incredible custom printed Incinerator Trooper. Unfortunately, the minifigure was only produced in a limited run so it won’t be easy to get hold of if you don’t already have one. Still, keep your eye on the site as you never know what products could return.
Chapter 4 introduced Star Wars fans to a band of Klatooinian raiders, a fearsome alien crime group that frequently attacked Omera’s village, robbing the citizens of their precious harvest. Set 75254, the AT-ST raider included two unique Klatooinian minifigures. If you want to expand your Klatooinian army, consider buying some more minifigures from FireStar Toys.
In chapter 2, the Child, the Mandalorian encounters a Jawa clan on Nevarro. These Jawas wore darker clothing and had red eyes. Although LEGO has never produced so called “Offworld Jawas”, they have made a wide variety of Tatooine Jawa minifigures. I recommend using these minifigures as a substitute.
In Chapter 3, Din and the Child are rescued by a Mandalorian faction. LEGO Mandalorian Battle Pack included four of these Mandalorian minifigures. FireStar toys has released custom printed arms for each of these minifigures. I recommend buying an arms pack as these represent a great bargain; they include four sets of arms and a custom printed Beskar steel tile. Mandalorians carry a wide variety of weapons. I suggest equipping your minifigures with Brickarms Westar 35 pistols, EE-3 blasters and BigKidBrix Mandalorian assault guns.
The Mandalorian features a wide variety of vehicles. The Razor Crest and AT-ST Raider are both essential vehicles for any AFOL’s LEGO Mandalorian collection. I also suggest getting a Sandcrawler, an X-Wing and an Imperial Troop Transporter. Check the custom mini builds page to see if you can buy these vehicles without any minifigures.
There are so many great figures, weapons and parts from the Mandalorian show. Whether you want a custom Moff Gideon, some more Stormtroopers, an Amban Sniper rifle or a Beskar ingot, FireStar Toys has you covered. Keep reading FireStar Toys blog for more great articles.
I hope you enjoyed reading this article. My first blog on FireStar Toys was a Mandalorian article so going back to the topic was a real treat. Hopefully I’ve improved a little since I first started writing.
