What's missing? Return of the Jedi

Posted by ,

Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi brings the Original Trilogy to a spectacular conclusion as the Rebel Alliance strikes a critical blow against the Galactic Empire, destoying the Emperor and redeeming Anakin Skywalker in the process.

These events are represented by more LEGO Star Wars sets than the other Original Trilogy films and I think the coverage provided over the last seventeen years has been fairly comprehensive on the whole, although there are a number of notable exclusions from the range as well as several characters, vehicles and locations which should be revisited and are worthy of discussion in my opinion.

A year has past since the Empire defeated the rebels on Hoth and their power is still growing with the construction of a second Death Star nearing completion. Darth Vader arrives on the battle station and berates the officer tasked with overseeing the project, Moff Tiaan Jerjerrod, who appears in one of my favourite deleted scenes from across the entire Star Wars saga. I would be delighted to see a Moff Jerjerrod minifigure and one might be included in an updated version of 7264 Imperial Inspection, although not for a few years given the recent release of 75094 Imperial Shuttle Tydirium.

Meanwhile, the rebels are engaged in a mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba's palace on Tatooine. R2-D2 and C-3PO approach the palace with instructions to deliver a message to Jabba the Hutt but are quickly put to work as the crime lord refuses to return Han to his friends, instead keeping him frozen in carbonite. The droids meet EV-9D9 beneath the palace and this memorable character appeared in 4480 Jabba's Palace from 2003 but has not been seen since.

9516 Jabba's Palace is an excellent set but there is considerable room for improvement and I think many fans would welcome a larger model of the building. A new version of EV-9D9 would be a good start but it would also be brilliant to see an expanded throne room which might include some new aliens from Jabba's entourage. I am not sure whether Sy Snootles could be adequately represented in minifigure form but it would certainly be interesting to find out!

Leia later arrives at the palace in the guise of Boushh, an Ubese bounty hunter. She drags Chewbacca into the throne room and insists that Jabba pay a bounty for the Wookiee, finally reaching an argreement with the crime lord after some nervous negotiations. Leia returns later and frees Han from Carbonite but they are accosted as they attempt to escape. Han is thrown into a cell while Leia is chained to Jabba's dais as the newest addition to his entourage.

Luke is next to enter the palace and he attempts to persuade Jabba to free Han, Leia, Chewbacca and the droids using a Jedi mind trick, but to no avail. He is instead dropped through a trapdoor into the Rancor pit where Luke is lucky to avoid being eaten, only surviving by dropping a heavy gate onto the neck of the monstrous creature. This famous scene was recreated in 75005 Rancor Pit which fits beneath 9516 Jabba's Palace and includes a fantastic Rancor figure. Few improvements could be made to the pit but it would be nice to see the Rancor included again in a larger model of the palace.

Jabba is infuriated by the demise of the Rancor and immediately sentences the rebel prisoners to death, choosing to throw them into the nearby Sarlacc where they will be slowly digested over a millennium. This deadly creature resides in the Great Pit of Carkoon and appeared most recently in 9496 Desert Skiff. It is rumoured that a new model of the Bantha-II Cargo Skiff will be released in January but I am not convinced that this is necessary as it will be difficult to improve upon the excellent set from 2012.

Most of Jabba's allies travel across the Dune Sea to watch the execution take place and the crime lord himself spectates from his luxurious sail barge. Like Jabba's palace, the sail barge has been seen in two LEGO sets: 6210 and 75020. Neither model is perfect but each one is worthy of merit in my opinion. The design from 2006 looks great from the exterior but lacks detail inside while the more recent offering uses the interior space more effectively but certain areas of the hull are not properly finished. A combination of the two sets would be almost perfect and I hope the vehicle will see a return at some point in the future, although not for a while as 75020 Jabba's Sail Barge was only retired last year.

The Khetanna is one of a handful of vehicles from across the entire saga which is the right size to be constructed at true minifigure scale and released as an Ultimate Collector's Series set. I am not sure whether the popularity of the craft would warrant such a large model but it is certainly something that I would buy if it were available, particularly if a few lesser known characters such as Umpass-stay, Tessek and Saelt-Marae were included.

Luke, Han and Chewbacca are readied for execution on a cargo skiff while Leia, R2-D2 and C-3PO watch on. Lando Calrissian also observes, having infiltrated Jabba's gang disguised as a guard. Luke is ushered to the edge of a platform, ready to fall into the Sarlacc's maw, but surprises his captors as he leaps into the air and catches his lightsaber which has been launched from a hidden compartment inside Artoo. He makes short work of the guards on the skiff but Boba Fett, who has been spectating from the sail barge, proves more of a challenge. He is able to briefly entrap Luke but his jetpack is activated in the chaos, launching the bounty hunter into the Sarlacc.

Meanwhile, Leia destroys the controls for the lights inside the sail barge and throttles Jabba with her chain. His guests ignore his cries as they try to escape but many encounter Luke and are killed. The droids leap off the side of the barge as Luke and Leia activate the deck gun before swinging to safety, leaving the Khetanna to explode. The entire group depart Tatooine for the rebel fleet near Sullust but Luke and R2-D2 take a different route, instead returning to Dagobah and Yoda.

Luke arrives to find Yoda ill. The Jedi Master assures Luke that his training has been satisfactorily completed and reluctantly confirms that Darth Vader is his father. Yoda also states that Luke must confront Vader and the Emperor before dying and becoming one with the Force as Obi-Wan did. Luke departs in his X-wing but is met by Obi-Wan's ghost as he leaves. Obi-Wan also informs him that he has a twin sister and Luke immediately senses that he is referring to Leia. I think a Dagobah set is long overdue as it has only previously appeared at minifigure scale in 4502 X-wing Fighter but I would favour a model based on Episode V, despite the lure of a ghostly Obi-Wan Kenobi minifigure.

The rebel fleet has already assembled by the time Luke arrives. Bothan spies have informed the Rebel Alliance that the second Death Star is nearing completion and that the Emperor is personally overseeing the final stages of its construction, providing a perfect opportunity for the rebels to attack. The incomplete state of the battle station leaves it relatively vulnerable but it is still protected by a formidable energy shield which is projected from a moon of the planet Endor and a strike team will need to deactivate this shield if they are to have any chance of destroying the Death Star.

The planning room appears in 7754 Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser and I think this formed the best part of the set. It is a shame that the scene has not appeared in a set since as I think a much smaller model could do the location justice while also providing a vessel for a range of potentially appealing minifigures. Updated versions of the rebel leaders could prove very popular, particularly given that Mon Mothma will soon be thrust back into the limelight as she appears in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The task of deactivating the shield falls to Han. He and a small team of rebel commandos land on the forest moon, using a stolen Imperial Shuttle to bypass the Imperial blockade, apparently undetected. Luke accompanies the team but quickly realises that his presence endangers the mission as Darth Vader is able to sense him using the Force. The Emperor learns of Luke's arrival but assures Vader that his son will soon join them on the Dark Side.

I think 10212 Imperial Shuttle is one of the best Star Wars sets ever released and 75094 Imperial Shuttle Tydirium provides a thoroughly impressive alternative to the larger model. The popularity of the vehicle will surely mean that a new set will be released at some point in the future but it might be difficult to better previous iterations and I would rather see an upgraded model of another class of shuttle.

Imperial Scout Troopers guard the shield generator on Endor but they are defeated after a dangerous speeder bike chase through the forest, represented in 1999 by 7128 Speeder Bikes. This set includes Luke Skywalker in his Endor garb but he has not appeared since, an issue which I hope will soon be resolved. Leia is knocked off her speeder during the pursuit and the other rebels are ensnared in a net while searching for her. This is revealed to be the work of Ewoks, diminutive creatures which inhabit the forest and hunt using cunning traps and ambush. C-3PO emerges from the undergrowth and his golden plating stuns the Ewoks, who proclaim him a god. They take the other rebels prisoner to be eaten at a feast in C-3PO's honour.

10236 Ewok Village includes this scene as well as several others which take place on the forest moon. C-3PO asks the Ewoks to free his friends but they refuse so Luke uses the Force to levitate C-3PO and the Ewoks quickly relent. Leia has also found her way to the village with the help of an Ewok named Wicket and the reunited group plan their next move against the Empire.

While C-3PO entertains the Ewoks with tales of their adventures, Luke resolves to seek out Darth Vader. Leia begs him to flee instead but he refuses, insisting that he can draw Vader back to the Light Side of the Force and revealing that they are siblings. He surrenders to Imperial personnel and is brought before Darth Vader. The Sith Lord appears sympathetic towards Luke for a moment but boards an Imperial Shuttle with his son to take him before the Emperor. This scene was represented by 7201 Final Duel II, although Darth Vader was only available in 7200 Final Duel I. I like the architecture of the enormous landing pad in which this discussion takes place but it would not be appropriate for an official set due to its extraordinary size and relative obscurity.

Luke is defiant before the Emperor but is shocked to hear that the Empire is aware of the impending attack and that his friends will soon be caught in a trap. Luke maintains his composure initially but launches into a frenzied attack as the Emperor predicts the destruction of the Rebel Alliance, only for his lightsaber to be blocked by Vader. This delights the Emperor and a duel ensues while its architect watches from his throne.

The duel was recently represented in 75093 Death Star Final Duel but it also appears in 10188 Death Star as well as the upcoming 75159 Death Star. The former is an excellent set but this would have been a perfect opportunity to include a Moff Jerjerrod minifigure as he stands outside the Emperor's throne room with a pair of Royal Guards and refuses Darth Vader entry in a deleted scene.

While Luke duels Vader on board the Death Star, the remaining rebels join forces with the Ewoks and enter the shield bunker with ease. They begin setting explosive charges but are captured by Imperial troops. The forces massed outside the bunker appear unassailable but the sudden arrival of hundreds of Ewoks overwhelms the garrison and the rebels are able to resume their work as they try to enter the shield generator station once more.

8038 The Battle of Endor is among my favourite LEGO Star Wars sets but I think a larger model of the shield bunker would prove popular and the original set was retired several years ago. Perhaps the AT-ST could be removed given the imminent release of 75153 AT-ST Walker, thereby allowing a greater number of pieces to be devoted to the bunker itself.

The rebel fleet jumps into hyperspace and arrives at Endor to find the energy shield still operational. They break off the attack just in time but are caught between the superlaser of the Death Star II and a fleet of Star Destroyers so are forced to engage in a desperate battle. Lando Calrissian pilots the Millennium Falcon alongside Nien Numb and leads waves of rebel fighters against the Imperial forces.

On the surface of the forest moon the battle is won and the shield bunker is destroyed. Admiral Ackbar realises immediately and a group of fighters, led by the Millennium Falcon, flies into the exposed superstructure of the Death Star II while the main fleet continues to occupy the Star Destroyers. The fleet consists of several Mon Calamari Cruisers, CR90 Corvettes GR-75 Medium Transports and Nebulon-B Frigates. Only the Corellian Corvette has been seen in a LEGO set and it would be interesting to see any of the others but I think the Nebulon-B Frigate would be particularly appealing as this could feature scenes from The Empire Strikes Back as well as Return of the Jedi.

On board the Death Star the duel between Luke and Darth Vader continues, with Luke eventually getting the upper hand as he swipes angrily at his father and cuts his hand off. The Emperor's cackling breaks Luke's intense focus and he once again refuses to join the Dark Side. This angers the Emperor and he hurls Force lightning at the Jedi while Vader looks on, torn between his loyalty to the Empire and his love for his son. He finally picks up the Emperor and throws him down the reactor shaft, just as the rebel fighters arrive at the main reactor and destroy it. They are pursued by TIE Interceptors which have not appeared since 6206 TIE Interceptor was released in 2006. That set looks rather dated today and I would be glad to see an updated model. This would provide yet another opportunity to include Moff Jerjerrod as Imperial Officers have often appeared in recent TIE Fighter sets.

Luke realises that his father has been mortally wounded and removes his helmet to reveal the scarred face of Anakin Skywalker. Luke speaks with his dying father before escaping on board an Imperial Shuttle. The Millennium Falcon also escapes the exploding Death Star just in time, rejoining the main fleet along with the surviving fighters.

News of the Galactic Empire's defeat spreads quickly across the galaxy and enormous celebrations are held. Meanwhile, the rebels celebrate their victory alongside the Ewoks on the forest moon of Endor and our heroes are reunited. Luke steps aside for a moment and is met by the spirit figures of Yoda, Obi-Wan and a redeemed Anakin Skywalker. These would make great promotional minifigures but it is unclear whether the kind of plastic used for translucent colours would be appropriate for a minifigure and we have yet to see an entirely translucent figure as a result. Perhaps a ghostly Anakin Skywalker, played by Sebastian Shaw, would make a good May the Fourth polybag.

All three continue to watch as the celebrations proceed, safe in the knowledge that the Empire and the Dark Side have been defeated.


As usual I am going to conclude by pitching set descriptions for three sets which I think would adequately complete the Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi range. I have used some artistic license where necessary to create what I believe to be plausible sets and tried to spread them across various price points.

Another great article! I can't choose between the pitched Nebulon-B Frigate or an exterior version of the Home One. Lego should make more of these Rebel or Separatist capital ships, though they have a lot of curved shapes which are difficult to recreate.

Moff Tiaan Jerjerrod appears in 75159 Death Star; other than that it was a great article. We need another TIE Interceptor!!! The Nebulon-B would also make a great Malevolence-scale set.

Great article. I think that a UCS set with a star destroyer and Mon Calamari cruiser could be an excellent set. The last star destroyer was 130$ and scaling it down slightly and adding in the cruiser could make a set that is only 250$-300$. Just think how awesome a set like that would be.

Nice article as always. My only suggestion is that Lando Calrissian could have been included in the Nebulon-B frigate, as it would give another opportunity to get him besides from a Cloud city set.

Prices of the proposed sets are somewhat optimistic. More like £49.99 for a TIE Interceptor and £99.99 for an Endor bunker.

I'd like to see a much bigger Sarlac/pit than what we've had so far and the meeting room on Home One could be a released as a set much like the recent ESB Carbon Freezing Chamber

There's a lot more Ewoks to release too

Thank you so much for using the image of Anakin, Yoda and Obi-Wan as force ghosts from the original theatrical version of Jedi and not the bowdlerised version with Hayden Christiansen!

I can believe there hasn't been a TIE Interceptor since 2006! It's definitely time for LEGO to update that starfighter, and I bet it would look great given how amazing the newer TIE Fighters are. I hope it happens soon!

Would love the first two ideas, and Moff Jerjerrod would be great to expand my imperial army. Only problem would be him having the wrong insignia due to the costume error on the set of the film. But you never know, Lego could be surprising....

By in Sweden,

So happy you finally mention the Redemption (Nebulon-B).

I ve been disappointed (and a bit afraid) that you forgot her in your previous article of the series.

I would easily pay that price or even a UCS. Also she would qualify as a Micro (they should have done her in the formidable "planet series" with 2-1B as a minifig maybe)

Keep up the good work!

Nice article. I can't be the only one who misses $20 and $30 TIE's. A squadron of TIE fighters is seven ships. Back in 2001, it would cost $140 for a full squadron. Now it costs $500 at least.

Hang in the deleted scenes if they fired the super laser at the endor moon how come it is still there after the death star has been destroyed!?!

By in United Kingdom,

Great article as always! I think my Episode VI sets are the most damaged, considering I still need to finish rebuilding my Desert Skiff (9496), I lost one of the wings for my TIE Interceptor, and Boba Fett's left leg broke off. Anyway, these are some of the best suggestions in the series so far. I would take the Endor Shield Bunker in an instant if I had the money (and the Spider-Man Bridge Battle).

Also, thanks for using the Sebastian Shaw image instead of Hayden Christiansen. That brought a smile to my face :-)

These articles are pretty sweet. I thought I knew Star Wars pretty well and had figured Lego was running out of ideas for new sets, but glad to see it's been shown otherwise!

Just out of curiosity, CapnRex, have any Lego officials made any remarks about these articles? Anything like "That's a great set idea" or "Well we can't do that because ..." or anything like that? I know Lego has strict input policies but I would hope they're taking notes on these articles :P

As long as nien numb is in a set I'm good.

For sure a Rebel Nebulon B, aside from a Tie-Bomber and it can prove an excellent play session.

By in United Kingdom,

I think a new TIE Interceptor should be made within the next 2 years, it's long overdue. I'd suggest a slight change of the minifig lineup: Stormtrooper, Tiaan Jerjerrod and Soontir Fel, Turr Phennir as pilots (both with TIE pilot gear, they would only need a new headprint)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think $40 is a tad optimistic for the TIE Interceptor. The similar TIE Striker is $70... now, it's also bigger, but a TIE cockpit the same size as 75101 and wings about the same as the new ship would be roughly the same price-wise. Although, I'd really prefer a TIE Bomber...

I'd love another Endor bunker as well. The original was a really imaginative model for 2009, spring-loaded explosion features and angles as complex as those on that AT-ST were a lot less common seven years ago. Imagine what they could pull off now...

By in United Kingdom,

@James"Bucky"Barnes - The deleted scene would have been placed moments before the destruction of the second Death Star, thereby not allowing the superlaser sufficient time to fire upon the forest moon.

@PicnicBasketSam - The TIE Interceptor is much smaller than most of the other TIE series starfighters and I think a model would be closest in size to 75082 TIE Advanced Prototype which was priced at $39.99.

8038 is my favorite Star wars set to date. If a rerelease is to happen as suggested, it needs to have more figs. The other one had just the right amount. I also must thank you on using the correct Anakin Skywalker ghost actor.

What about a Endor Rebel Trooper pack? Or a speeder bike chase of some kind? That would be cool.

By in United Kingdom,

Episode VI certainly doesn't have the gaping Cloud City-sized hole in its Lego representation, most of the film is actually very well presented.

I think the most desirable and likely outcome are the Imperial installations on the forest moon - we've had plenty of sets out in the forest battling, but only one Shield Bunker. I don't think it's beyond the realms of possibility to scale down the shield array or the main landing platform for Lego representation. UCS sail barge seems quite likely too for relatively soon. Or, another Rancor!

I look forward to the Episode VII article, the film has only had a few sets so far and it already feels pretty complete, except perhaps for minifigures. Lego Rathtar mould anyone?

Excellent article again CapnRex101. I have looked forward to all of these "What's Missing?" articles. I would love to see another TIE Interceptor. That design has always been one of my favorites from the Star Wars universe. Unfortunately I didn't come out of my "dark ages" until most of the sets mentioned here were retired, but I have been able to really make up for it over the last few years by getting as many new Star Wars sets as possible. I hope you continue these articles for Rogue One and beyond!

By in {Unknown country},

Very good article (as usual), thank you CaptainRex!

As a general comment, I would like to see more sets that complement each others rather than overlapping.

Here's an example:
8038 is one of my favorites, so I would love to see a new (slightly) bigger bunker (that would also include the satellite dish by the way).
I agree with CaptainRex that there's no need to include any AT-ST with the bunker, one can easily complement with one or two 75153. But I would not have Leia, Han Solo and the rebel trooper included at it overlapps 75094. I would rather have 2 to 4 Death Star troopers as seen in the movie, along with Major Hewex (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Hewex), Colonel Dyer (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dyer) and Lieutenant Renz. Depending on the size of the bunker and the number of minifigs, I would lower the price to 50-70 euros.
I would also remove the Ewok glider and catapult and create a kind of "Ewok battlepack", along with Endor battlepacks "à la" 9489 (one for Imperials, one for Ewok/rebel troopers). As a side remark, please Lego, stop putting useless micro-buildings/turrets/trees in battlepacks and just provide minifigs with their weapons!!!
I don't believe in the "friends and foes" mix in sets, I remember having some Castle sets from mid-80s where I had only Lions or only Falcons in the box, and the idea was to combine several sets to get a proper battle.

My guess is that with such approach (sets that combine well), Lego would get huge benefits as sets would be more straight to the point (the Imperial bunker is just a bunker, with only Imperials in it) so more affordable (it's a toy for children after all), no overlaps of minifigs, better flexibility in terms on how you want to combine sets and battlepacks (I want more Ewoks => get the battlepack, I want more Imperials => get the battlepack, etc.)

Regarding Captain's proposals:
- TIE Interceptor: I don't see the purpose of having Moff Jerjerrod and a Death Star Trooper (10 euros saved). This is swooshable by essence, so no need for ground crew.
Complements well with Millenium Falcon and A-Wing (75003)
- Endor Shield Bunker: see above
- Nebulon-B frigate: I like all the ideas Captain brought (bacta tank, etc.), but I think the price proposed is too low to get something decent, especially considering the level of details it would require. It would probably require a price above 200 euros in my opinion, so a UCS stamp.

Things I'd like to see:
- Briefing room in Home One, without any ship like 7754, including Mon Mothma, Crix Madine, Admiral Ackbar, Nien Nunb and Lando Calrissian
That would complement well with a Millenium Falcon (Lando and Nien can be used in it), and Han, Leia, Chewie, Luke and Rebel Troopers from 75094 can attend the briefing too!
- MC80 UCS!!!

@MichelG LEGO does not have the rights to sell sets w/ minifigures & hand accessories only, since that would constitute action figure(s) and only Hasbro has rights to those

A guy on eurobricks did a crazy Nebulon frigate. I think it costs around $1000 to brick link and has over 5000 pieces. I may do it one day when I have time - but my wife my divorce me. :)

A couple of people have reminded me that we have only ever had one version of the Death Star II, and, had we not been receiving a new version of the Death Star playset, this would seem a pretty viable idea. Especially if it were scaled down, maybe to a 30-40cm diameter. But a new TIE Interceptor would be an acceptable substitute. They do actually look weirdly blue in the film, so I can see where TLG were coming from originally.

By in Portugal,

I understand the excitement of people regarding Lego Star Wars, I am also a big fan, but to be honest I think it's time to move on! This year many fans were disappoited about the UCS released. I am a bit tired of re-releases of sets, and "redos" of other sets.
Instead of searching for "what is missing" I think the point should be "what Lego is preparing to amaze fans again" or "what will Lego do after all people get tired of Lego Star Wars". I know some will say "I never get tired of Lego Star Wars" or "Lego Star Wars will never finish either because there are always new fans or because is the most profitable franchise of Lego", but for me it's time to move ahead.
New Star Wars movies means new sets. For me that is ok because they will be new. But to make again, and again, and again sets from movies with 30 years is already too much.
If Lego want to make something that would shake the ground and be fun would be to make a new UCS of Millenium Falcon. The people that have them still on sale for thousands of euros or dollars or whatever would be pissed off, but at least it would be a re-release of something that would gather the fans again. Not like what is happening now with the new Death Star!
Anyway sorry for the mouring and thanks for the articles.

An updated TIE Interceptor would be nice.
I'd also like to see in UCS form the twin-hulled TIE Shuttle/Transport perhaps, rather than the Bomber. That would make for an excellent display piece.
