The Most Beloved Star Wars™ Characters

The Most Beloved Star Wars™ Characters

With so many characters from across the galaxy, it’s hard to pick our favourites. But here are some of the most widely beloved characters from the series.

Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker

It’s hard to name a more iconic Star Wars™ character than Darth Vader himself. The combination of his signature black helmet, deep, booming voice, and famous theme music (The Imperial March) makes him one imposing and unforgettable figure. He’s the bad guy you just can’t help but love.

He wasn’t always a member of the dark side, though. In the Prequel Trilogy, starting with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace™, we meet Anakin Skywalker, a young boy with a love of podracing and a strong connection to the Force. As he grows up, he faces many difficult choices – choices that ultimately lead him to the dark side.

Pay homage to one of the most famous Sith Lords in the galaxy with collectable LEGO® Star Wars sets. The LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet (75304) is a detailed building project that pays tribute to all the sinister details of Darth Vader’s iconic black helmet. It also comes with its own display stand and nameplate.

Recreate a famous scene from Star Wars: A New Hope™ with the Boarding the Tantive IV™ (75387) diorama. This detailed set is a model of the corridor inside Tantive IV, where Darth Vader’s stormtroopers battled Captain Antilles’ Rebel Fleet Troopers. This diorama features levers to ‘blast’ open the entrance door and topple characters and connectors to add another 75387 set (sold separately) to extend the corridor. With minifigures of Darth Vader, Captain Antilles, two Stormtroopers and two Rebel Fleet Troopers, you can create the perfect model of this iconic battle.

Luke Skywalker

What would Star Wars™ be without Luke Skywalker? Growing up as a young moisture farmer from the desert planet of Tatooine, Luke lived with his aunt and uncle and enjoyed tinkering with machinery. It wasn’t until a visit from the mysterious Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi that he had any idea about his past… or what his future could be.

With the help of Jedi masters Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, along with his friends Han Solo, R2-D2, C-3PO and his sister Leia, Luke joins the Rebel Alliance and embarks on a journey to fulfil his destiny as a Jedi Knight and restore balance to the Force.

Celebrate Luke’s victory at the end of Star Wars: A New Hope™ with the LEGO® Star Wars Yavin 4 Rebel Base (75365). This set for Star Wars fans aged 8+ is full of authentic details, such as a command room, pilot briefing room, two rotating stud shooters and more. Kids can re-enact the final scene of the film by presenting medals on the ceremony stage to minifigures of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. With 10 minifigures and two LEGO droid figures, this set is brimming with opportunities for creative role play, either for acting out favourite scenes from the film or making up their own galactic adventures.

Princess Leia

A fierce fighter, talented diplomat and dynamic leader, Princess Leia Organa is easily one of the most beloved characters of Star Wars™. The daughter of Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala, and twin sister of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia is a key player in the rebellion against the Empire. While she may have started her role in the rebellion as the adopted daughter of Bail Organa and a princess of the planet Alderaan, Leia grew into one of the Rebel Alliance’s most powerful leaders, becoming a General in the Resistance, never giving up on her fight against evil.

Recreate one of Leia’s most thrilling moments from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™ with the LEGO® Star Wars Endor™ Speeder Chase Diorama (75353). This buildable model of the exciting chase on the forest moon of Endor shows minifigures of Luke and Leia chasing a Scout Trooper minifigure on speeder bikes through brick-built trees. The set features a display stand with a Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™ 40th anniversary logo plaque and a plaque with a quote from Luke: “Quick! Jam their comlinks. Center switch!” This diorama is a must-have for any Princess Leia fan.

Han Solo

Pilot. Smuggler. Hero. Scruffy-looking nerf herder.

Han Solo is one of the most iconic characters of the Star Wars™ galaxy, known for his roguish attitude and expert flying skills. Introduced in Star Wars: A New Hope™, Han is paid to smuggle Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa in his starship, the Millennium Falcon (aka the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy”). But throughout the series, Han proves himself to be a true hero, playing an integral part in the Rebel Alliance’s fight against Darth Vader and the Empire, ultimately helping to bring freedom to the galaxy in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™.

Show your love for the smuggler with the LEGO® Star Wars Millennium Falcon™ (75375). This new-for-2024 model of the famous starship marks the 25th anniversary of LEGO Star Wars and is a true collector’s item for any Star Wars fan. Packed with authentic details including a cockpit, rear engine and cannons, this mid-scale model makes an eye-catching display piece. From its dynamic placement on the buildable stand to the nameplate and special LEGO Star Wars 25th anniversary brick, this set is sure to delight fans of Han Solo and his starship.


No list of beloved Star Wars™ characters would be complete without mentioning everyone’s favourite Wookiee, Chewbacca. Tall, hairy and known for his distinctive growl, Chewbacca (or “Chewie” to his friends) is Han Solo’s loyal co-pilot, and a brave and true friend to the Rebel Alliance. But don’t let his fuzzy exterior fool you – Chewbacca is also a strong and formidable fighter!

Create your own brick-built Wookiee with the LEGO® Star Wars Chewbacca™ (75371) build-and-display figure. This impressive model is made up of 2,319 pieces and stands over 46cm tall, including Chewbacca’s iconic brown fur, bandolier and giant bowcaster. Showcase the final product on a display stand with a signature plaque with information about the Wookiee. The set also includes a Chewbacca LEGO minifigure, complete with stud-shooting bowcaster.

R2-D2 and C-3PO

This dynamic droid duo have been on countless adventures together throughout the Star Wars™ saga. C-3PO, originally built by a young Anakin Skywalker out of spare parts, is a protocol droid fluent in over 6 million forms of communication! R2-D2 is an astromech droid who communicates primarily in clicks and beeps (and the occasional scream). Their friendship is one of the most beloved aspects of the Star Wars saga.

Build a playful centrepiece of one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars galaxy with the LEGO® Star Wars R2-D2™ (75379) set. Once fully built, the collectable figure stands at 25cm tall, with a 360-degree rotating head, detachable third leg, an attachable periscope and additional attachable tools. Finish off this impressive Star Wars memorabilia with the R2-D2 information plaque and additional minifigures of Darth Malak and the R2-D2 LEGO figure.


Yoda was a legendary Jedi master and former leader of the Jedi Council. Small in size but large in power, he trained as Jedi for over 800 years and was a formidable threat with a Lightsaber™ and when using the power of the Force. He also served as a great mentor to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker, teaching the importance of patience, self-control and how to resist the temptations of the dark side of the Force.

Kids aged 8+ can play with this powerful Jedi master with Yoda’s Jedi Starfighter™ (75360), recreated with LEGO® bricks. From the Clone Wars, this set includes two spring-loaded shooters, adjustable wings, a Master Yoda LEGO minifigure and R2-D2 figure. This small Star Wars™ set is perfect as a Christmas, birthday or anytime gift to young fans of Star Wars. Kids can launch into fun action-filled play as they recreate the many battles from the Clone Wars.

Grogu and The Mandalorian

Following the fall of the Galactic Empire, Din Djarin, also referred to as The Mandalorian, was a lone bounty hunter travelling the galaxy taking on missions. But after meeting the mysterious but adorable Grogu, his life changes dramatically. Grogu quickly became a fan favourite and forms a deep bond with The Mandalorian.

Traverse through the galaxy in the LEGO® Star Wars™ The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter™ (75325). Recreate iconic moments from Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett™ with this LEGO brick model that is built for hours of action. The set comes with four characters including The Mandalorian, Grogu, Peli Motto and a BD Droid. The Star Wars ship includes playful features such as a minifigure cockpit, passenger space for Grogu (of course), a small cargo compartment, a spring-loaded shooter and authentic bashed-up details.

Ahsoka Tano

Ahsoka Tano has been featured in many of the Star Wars™ films. Fans have watched her evolve from a brash and impulsive Padawan to a courageous leader. From fighting in the Clone Wars with Anakin and Obi-Wan to surviving a face-off with Darth Vader, her many adventures have solidified her status as a fan favourite. Her unique appearance, impressive combat skills and distinctive personality have many fans arguing she is one of the most powerful characters in the Star Wars galaxy.

Young Jedi can create their own adventures with the stud-shooting LEGO® Star Wars Ahsoka Tano’s T-6 Jedi Shuttle (75362) set. Get ready for flight with this action-packed set including adjustable elements so kids can easily play out their own stories. This small set also comes with four LEGO Star Wars minifigures including Ahsoka Tano with two Lightsabers™, Sabine Wren with two blasters, Professor Huyang and Marrok.

Boba Fett

He’s ruthless, he’s efficient and he’s the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy. Boba Fett, a clone of the famous Jango Fett and raised by him as his son, is one of the deadliest characters in the Star Wars™ galaxy. He was one of the six bounty hunters Darth Vader assembled, with a grand reward promised to whoever captures the crew of the Millennium Falcon. With his customised Mandalorian armour, ferocious weaponry and witty quotes, he has become a firm fan favourite.

This action-packed LEGO® Star Wars Boba Fett™ Mech (75369) is the perfect gift for fans of the famous bounty hunter. Designed for quick building so kids can get straight to playing, this posable mech suit has a clip for his blaster rifle, gripping hands to hold the large stud-shooting blaster, and a large jetpack with a flick shooter. It has an opening cockpit for the included Boba Fett LEGO minifigure, who comes with his own jetpack!

Obi-Wan Kenobi

From the films to the latest Disney+ show, Obi-Wan Kenobi plays a significant role in the Star Wars™ saga. He is known for being the skilled Jedi Master who trained Anakin Skywalker, who later became Darth Vader despite Obi-Wan’s guidance. He also became a mentor to many other legendary Jedi, including Luke Skywalker and Leia. When he wasn’t busy training the next generation of Jedi, he was preserving peace and justice in the galaxy.

You can build and display one of Star Wars most iconic duos with the LEGO® BrickHeadz™ Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi™ and Darth Vader™ figures. Relive the dramatic scenes from the films with this creative building toy for Star Wars fans aged 10+. When complete, the figures stand over 8cm tall, making them a great model to display on a shelf, desk or cabinet!

Darth Maul

Finally, one of the most recognised Sith Lords in the galaxy, thanks to his unique red skin and black Nightbrother markings, is Darth Maul. He was most famously known for being the apprentice of Darth Sidious – the Dark Lord of the Sith and Emperor of the Galactic Empire. Darth Maul was an expert in melee and Lightsaber™ combat, and was totally devoted to the dark side of the Force. Fans have argued he is one of the best villains in Star Wars™ because of his desperate need for revenge, evolution of character throughout the franchise and impressive Lightsaber™ duels.

Pay tribute to this iconic villain from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace™ with the new LEGO® Star Wars BrickHeadz™ The Phantom Menace™ (40676) collection. Create a buildable figure of Darth Maul, complete with double-bladed red Lightsaber™, along with figures of young Anakin Skywalker, Queen Amidala, Qui-Gon Jinn, Jar Jar Binks and Captain Panaka.

Across the entire Star Wars™ franchise, there are hundreds to talk about. Some honourable mentions go to:

  • The Ewoks from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™ for being an impressive army capable of defeating the Empire’s Stormtroopers but looking adorable while doing so.
  • Rey is loved for her resilience as seen throughout her life, as well as being a headstrong, loyal Jedi.
  • Finally, BB-8, the adorable astromech droid who carried an important clue to Luke Skywalker’s location in the sequel trilogy.
