It would be nearly impossible to choose the best LEGO Star Wars sets all at once, because you cannot compare battle packs for less than 15£ a piece to the UCS sets worth hundreds of pounds. That’s why I’ve decided to split this list into several categories, starting with the best sets you could or can grab from 60 to 100 £.
However, it’s very important to note few things before we start. Prices are different in USD, GBP, EUR or even CZK. Sometimes, you get the best price in GBP, sometimes it’s in USD. We’ve always used the best price each set was available for. As for the inflation, list is NOT accounted for it, because it varies for every country each year and it’s extremely hard to indicate the exact inflation rate for LEGO sets. Order the sets are shown in is also random, being the last or the first on the list doesn’t make that set the worst or the best. All things set, let’s start our list.
75211 Imperial TIE Fighter
The latest rendition of this legendary starfighter comes from the spring wave of 2018. It bears a close resemblance to the 2015 UCS version, bringing its beautiful design to more affordable price range. New Han Solo, Tobias Beckett and Mudtrooper from Mimban will make a great addition to your collection and this set will not disappoint with the value you get for the price paid.
75172 Y-wing Starfighter
Part of the second wave of sets from LEGO Star Wars Rogue One, this 2017 version of the Rebel Alliance Y-wing Starfighter takes the best from its predecessors and makes it even better. 4 exclusive figures, including beloved admiral Raddus and a new Blue Squadron pilot are perfect interpretations of their movie counterparts. Don’t miss your chance and try to get this ship as soon as possible.
75155 Rebels U-Wing Fighter
Another Rogue One set, this time a brand-new ship designed for the movie. This sleek rebel transport allows you to carry your figures underneath its cockpit. New Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor figures in their Jedha outfits are accompanied by 3 more Rebel ground and air forces soldiers. It also goes well with the 2017 set 75171 Battle on Scarif, completing your amazing Rogue One diorama.
75094 Imperial Shuttle Tydirium
This iconic ship played a huge role in the Rebel victory on Endor. The latest interpretation of this legendary vehicle is filled with amazing details as well as great minifigures. New Han Solo and Princess Leia in their Endor outfits, Chewbacca and 2 Rebel soldiers. This set offers something great for fans of the Clone Wars TV series – one of the rebel soldiers included in this set is in fact Captain Rex according to the new canon! The shuttle has moving wings, detailed interior and a landing gear.
75052 Mos Eisley Cantina
The best version of this iconic Episode IV place so far. Including not only the cantina itself, but also a sandtrooper with an improved Dewback mold and also Luke’s Landspeeder. All this allows you to recreate many scenes from this legendary movie. And who wouldn’t love the brand-new Bith musician minifigures, performers of the famous Cantina Band theme. Wanna get a drink at the bar? Meet Han Solo before he kills Greedo? Or patrol the streets of Mos Eisley with your Dewback? This set lets you do all this and even more. The only negative is the absence of the bartender Wuher. Or add your Din Djarin figure, since he has visited the place in the first season of The Mandalorian.
75053 The Ghost
Home of the Rebels TV series protagonists, The Ghost is a beautiful and already iconic ship from the Star Wars Universe. This set was released prior to the Rebels debut and became very desirable and expensive over the years, because it’s the only version of the ship in this scale and you cannot find Zeb Orellios in any other set. Funny piece of LEGO trivia: First few figures of Kanan Jarus included black hair and these figures have become expensive as well. The set can be connected to 75048 The Phantom to create an even bigger ship. It would be a mistake to pass on this set even today, as its price will increase more.
Predecessor of the imperial AT-AT, AT-TE doesn’t put a shame to it. Elegant grey and red wine colour scheme, a total of 7 cannons and a handle are just a few of many amazing features this set has. New Droid and Clone commanders, Mace Windu and an incredible Coleman Trebor minifigures are, without a doubt, perfect. Set goes well with the other Episode II sets released in 2013 such as the Homing Spider Droid or the Republic Gunship. Grab this set if you can and lead the Republic to its victory in the Battle of Geonosis in your own living room.
75025 Jedi Defender-class Cruiser
Stunning ship from the Old Republic era, this cruiser is always ready to defend the Republic and Jedi knights piloting it can face-off the Sith trying to conquer the galaxy. 3 exclusive and extremely valuable figures are included- Zabrak Jedi knight, Jedi consular and a Sith Warrior. The Sith warrior is also accompanied by a Sith Trooper equipped with a blaster. Dominant dark red colour gives this ship a beautiful finish and makes it stand out easily in your collection. Features include a holocron, two escape pods, a retractable landing gear and many more. Truly a jewel of the LEGO Star Wars Old Republic sets.
9526- Palpatine’s Arrest
The only version of the famous scene released so far. Set includes many exclusive figures in new outfits. Jedi Master Agen Kolar can only be found here. It also includes a speeder that Anakin uses to get there from the Jedi Temple just in time to witness the end of a duel between Mace Windu and Chancellor Palpatine. Bit of LEGO trivia: This set was a part of 2009 poll where fans could choose one set to be made, but the Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser was chosen. Despite its loss, the set was released 4 years later.
This set is a must-have for all the prequel fans out there!
7879 Hoth Echo Base
The first version of the Rebel Outpost that is focused on the interior. Stables for Tauntaun, the little Command Center, turrets with missiles to protect the base and a medical bay, this set has it all! Two snowtroopers are equipped with a powerful e-web blaster and a snow speederbike. Good guys include the new Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker in the Bacta suit for the first time as well as our favourite scoundrels Han Solo and Chewbacca. Droids R-3PO and 2-1B are just a cherry on top.
8038 The Battle of Endor
Part of the 10th LEGO Star Wars anniversary sets, this beautiful set brings back the memorable scenes from Return of the Jedi in LEGO form for the first time. New head and torso combo mold for Ewoks is excellent and brings a new life to your figures. Speederbikes, a catapult, an Ewok glider and an AT-ST offer more action features than you could possibly imagine. The set was also full of new minifigures such as Endor Princess Leia, Endor Rebel troopers and Ewoks. If you love Episode VI, this is definitely a set worth having.
7665 Republic Cruiser
Featured in Episode I The Phantom Menace as the first ship we see, this elegant cruiser served as a transport for Jedi apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi and his master Qui-Gon Jinn. Bright Red and white colour scheme is something new and special, even though I prefer the 2011 version. New Republic Captain and Republic Pilot are included.
This price range of these LEGO Star Wars sets is quite affordable to most people in many countries and it also gives you a great value for your money. I own few of the sets mentioned and I love them all, some of them are perfect for what they are. The prices are usually high yet low enough to offer you some bigger ships without having to pay enormous amounts of money.
