What is your favourite Star Wars minifigure?

Posted by ,

The LEGO minifigure is celebrating its fortieth anniversary in 2018. We therefore invited Brickset members to submit their favourite minifigure in preparation for a poll that will determine the most popular minifigure ever released! More than 650 members gave a response, nominating characters from across LEGO's history and a broad range of different themes.

No theme proved more popular than Star Wars, hence our second semi-final poll is focused entirely upon minifigures from a galaxy far, far away. The three figures which receive the most votes will proceed to a final poll, joining those from three other categories.

Submit your vote after the break...

What is your favourite Star Wars minifigure?

Two further polls, focused upon minifigures from different themes and eras, will be published shortly so keep an eye on the homepage for those.

Which minifigure did you vote for? Let us know in the comments.

7150 Darth Vader all the way! To me he's the epitome of early SW, my favourite lego SW era. No angry clones or endless remakes to the point of saturation yet back then. If lego were to license movie characters, it had to be Darth Vader IMHO

That being said, as a fan of primarely nonlicensed themes having Star Wars as a sub-poll for its own feels weird. If all the other sub-polls will be licenses I'd be disappointed. I get that movie characters are popular, but it's sad that lego's own themes might be overshadowed.
Just my thoughts.

It is really time for a new and improved Queen Amidala minifig!

By in United Kingdom,

I know what you mean, I reckon that one of the remaining polls will be on modern city and lego themes, and the other on other licences

I have Neither of hose minifigs, But I voted for Darth Malgus, he's a really awesome minifig...

No pilots, no vote.
Only Oola & the Death Trooper raised even a glimmer but that's closer to 'which of these are you least indifferent about?'

By in United Kingdom,

What a ridiculous shortlist. 2 Vaders? 2 Boba Fetts? Hardly any OT ones compared to EU or prequels? . Not one Luke , Leia or Han? I understand that this shortlist came from the initial poll but that was EVERY Lego minifig. I automatically discounted voting for any Star Wars ones as I thought best minifig should be Lego originated not a licensed one. If I was to vote only on Star Wars it would be classic original stormtrooper. You can never have too many stormtroopers and I am shocked thats not in the list!

By in United Kingdom,

@Binnekamp - The voting categories are divided according to the nominations given by Brickset members. Roughly a quarter of those nominations selected Star Wars figures while another quarter picked 'classic' minifigures from original themes released between 1978 and 2002. The final two voting categories will be modern minifigures from original themes and minifigures from all licenses other than Star Wars.

@buffbrick - The original Stormtrooper did receive a couple of nominations but fell some way short of the minifigures listed here. I realise that some people might wish to vote for other figures but the nature of any poll is such that not everyone will be able to select their first choice. After all, LEGO has produced almost 1000 Star Wars minifigures!

Having said that, please continue to comment with any other Star Wars minifigures you particularly like. 2019 will mark the twentieth anniversary of LEGO Star Wars so perhaps Brickset could run another poll focused entirely upon Star Wars minifigures next year.

Can’t really pick a favourite from this shortlist :-(
Personally I’d want to see Carbon Han from jabbas palace set, CW Obiwan, OT Bossk, CW Aayla Secura, CC Bespin Luke, Ewok village wicket, Hoth Base 2-1B and Leia on a list :-)

Glad you chose that picture of Rebels Ahsoka because it's clearly one of my favorite (if not my favorite) of the theme. Commander Wolffe, Rex phase II and also this unique, precious and highly collectible version of Amidala wearing her beautiful red dress (made from a mold that has never been used again after ?) and a few others, but when I look at my minifig display cases, my eyes always end on this version of Snips. I love it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can’t pick my favorite from this list. My favorite is the original Stormtrooper, followed closely by the original Boba Fett.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Out of this list, I actually found it pretty hard to pick, I eventually went for concept boba fett, as it is one of the few from this list I own, plus I love it's perfect simplicity and style. Still miffed that none of the pilots made the short list though. I would have taken any pilot minifig over any on this list. Oh well..

Gravatar
By in United States,

Darth Revan all the way! (even though I still don't have him yet)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I don't have much of an opinion on SW minifigs as far as personal reference goes. I appreciate that I'm a bit odd. So I'm going with the one I own which has the most detail: UCS Boba Fett.

Also, must echo others on here as to the dearth of original trilogy content. But if it comes from the users I can't grumble but must reflect on my obviously ageing preferences...!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Easy, Darth Revan.

Gravatar
By in Switzerland,

Princess Leia!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was torn between Malgus and Ahsoka. Once you’ve seen them in person they’re both very well done! In the end, I favored Ahsoka given her appearance in Rebels which I loved!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

This 'tournament' is way more exciting than the FIFA World Cup!

My vote was for the ARC Trooper, not my favorite clone trooper, but the best on this list.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Yep, if someone had asked for Star Wars, I'd have said Luke Skywalker in his original orange flight suit. Although mainly because I come from a time when orange LEGO was a myth. Failing that, the original Darth Vader was a brilliant figure at the time.

Second choice would be Shaak Ti, who appeared in the videogame long before actually being made as a minifigure.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm gonna have to go with Revan. Aside from possibly chrome C-3PO he is the coolest one that comes to mind anyway!

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Just to inform that I could somehow vote twice - once in my mobile, once on my PC. Without voting a second time I couldn't view the results on my PC. Can't be intentional?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is it possible to see the poll results without casting a vote?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I had trouble deciding, but for some reason I went with ARC Trooper. There are some great choices, though, including the newer Ahsoka Tano and Boba Fett.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I am on Brickset every day and I don't remember seeing a poll to pick minifigs for this list. I have to agree with @buffbrick on the selections presented. There isn't a figure there that I would consider in the top 20 of the best SW minifigs.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

My favourite is one of the R2D2s which isn't on the list. Of the ones that are, I like Amidala most. I don't have that minifigure but remember thinking how cool it was when it came out.

I do have Vader 7150 in my display collection but recognise that it isn't the greatest SW minifigure. The other DV on the list is better.

I wonder how strong the bias is in favour of minifigures one owns. Obviously, there is some relationship: if you like a minifigure, you're more likely to get it. But how strong is that effect? Do you own the minifigure you voted for?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Very difficult but settled on Boba. Again have to say having two Darth vaders is sure to mean the combination may beat other but on their on they wont win. Lots of those good, Amadala is great but not really a minifig. Nearlt wnt Oola and Arc

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm surprised chromed 3PO or none of the R2's made the list.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Tough choice for me. The ARC Trooper was the coolest Clone ever to me as a kid. But that Boba Fett is in one of my favorite sets.

Went with the ARC Trooper in the end though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

General Grievous

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I hadn't seen the Queen Amidala minifig until she got repeated nominations in the poll- that's one that could easily make it into the CMF range. Time Lady anyone?

Gravatar
By in United States,

This poll is definitely missing Red arm C-3PO, that would have my vote.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I voted for Vader 7150, which I think best captures SW with Lego-style cute and charm. The more detailed figs are impressive, I admit, but the more realistic they are, the more they lose the charm that was so endearing when they started out. I see how Fett 75060 is likeable, but I just can't beat the early Vader for "These aren't Star Wars action figures, this is the Lego take on Star wars."

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Ahsoka!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Captain Phasma all the way. I don't like the character mind you, but I love the minifigure.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Yes Diodrama! Wicket all the way

Gravatar
By in United States,

I actually love the battle droid and super battle droid figs, so simple but pretty much perfect - I mean, their design has barely changed since they were first released. 7150 Darth Vader is pretty iconic too. I went with white Boba because I just love that fig.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Huh, the image changed to Boba.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Chrome Gold C-3PO

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

Gonna pick Revan for the fact alone that it exists.

Gravatar
By in Hong Kong,

How does the iconic stormtrooper not make the list??? Simply because there have been too many variants for people to settle on one.

When I think Star Wars Lego the storm trooper figure is the first to come to mind followed by Vader, R2–D2, C3PO and Chewie . I am sure we all have plenty of those 5 figures in our collections.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ahsoka for me! hope she breaks into 3rd place!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Probably all of them!

Gravatar
By in United States,

She's not on the list, but I love the most recent Princess Leia in the updated Death Star. I'm also a huge fan of the original Yoda and the original GONK Droid.

Voted for the original Vader though--it's a classic!

Gravatar
By in Russian Federation,

New DW's helmet don't look right to me.

Voted for Amidala.

Amidala for chancellor.

By in United Kingdom,

Shadow ARF trooper for life!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Oola is so beautiful, I'd marry her!!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I'm really surprised that this list does not include sw407: Boushh (9516). That would probably be my favorite Star Wars minifigure.

From the list I chose Oola. Can't understand why Boba Fett is on first place. I own this figure and it is certainly nice, but then again, it is just another Boba Fett with a little more detail.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I voted for Ahsoka. Don't have her. How did R2 and 3P0 not make the poll?

By in United Kingdom,

By in Austria,

Darth Revan & Queen Amidala - from the list.

Other:
1) Horton Salm (75050)
2) Jedi Consular (75025)
3) 212th Clone Paratrooper (75036)
4) Boushh (9516)
5) Airen Cracken (75050)
6) Aayla Secura (75182)
7) all Phase I / AOTC Clone Troopers after 2013

Gravatar
By in United States,

I know I am kind of cheating with these polls as I do not own most of these figures (I do own the Shadow ARF trooper). However, even though I don't own this figure as of yet, I really adore the latest Darth Vader design as I just love his new helmet, updated prints and the newer style cape. I'm actually hoping to get the Darth Vader's Transformation set relatively soon, as all the figures are great.

Gravatar
By in Slovakia,

My favourite SW minifig is Han Solo from 75212: Kessel Run Millennium Falcon set, but he is not here so I voted for Ahsoka Tano, looks really great.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I want to cheat and vote Dagobah Luke with Yoda on his back (definitely counts as 1) from the recent 75208 Yoda's hut. But since they're not an option, I'll vote classic Vader.

Gravatar
By in United States,

From childhood--the old TRU chrome Stormtrooper was always cool--just wish I'd left the thing in the pack.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Vader 7150. It's the thing that made me buy the first sets when I saw them in TRU in 1999! Floodgate!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

From the list I vote for new Darth Vader, easy choice from this list. But I have to admit, I do like the new Dagobah Luke or latest Endor Leia a whole lot more!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Darth Vader (7150) > Darth Vader (75093). It may not be as detailed as the newer model, but it has that undeniable LEGO charm that makes it a shining example of what "LEGO Star Wars" should be.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Vader or the Fett man tough choice.

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

Starkiller, great character from video game. I little suprised no one mention him.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Voted for Vader 7150's classy iconic look, though my favourite would be Cloud City Boba, (all the extra printing on the newer ones makes him too 'fussy' for my liking).
Original Leia, Maul or Pong Krell would make my top 10 as well.... please, tell us Capn (and we don't mind waiting til the vote is closed) who would YOU choose ....?

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Queen Amidala without a doubt. Fantastic minifig reproduction of a fantastic costume, hairstyle and makeup.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Write-in for Admiral Ackbar!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'll admit, I have a soft spot for Jek-14...

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Loved the microfighter U-Wing pilot, but has gotta be Boba. I remember being astounded and impressed by the leap of quality at the time to create such detail.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm sure I'm just being nostalgic but that old Vader was the perfect balance of cartoony LEGO and "realistic" detail, so that has my vote.

Gravatar
By in United States,

DEATHTROOPER!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Concept Boba-honestly wish they’d stuck with the concept of elite stormtrooper instead of bounty hunter.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Queen Amidala, clearly. Should be #1 overall.

None of the Advent Calendar special designs made it? What?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Concept Boba Fett? The boring white version? Why no General Grievous?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Shoretropper from Scarif should be #1

Gravatar
By in United States,

Luke Skywalker, Old (75200) or Rose (75201), but neither of those were options, so I chose Ahsoka.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What the... why is Queen Amidala near the top?
Anyways, Darth Vader all the way! Boba's good too, though.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

All my favourites like Max Rebo, the Resistance Bomber crew, lots of the Rebel Rogue One figs and many others didn't make the shortlist... shame

...but I did vote for Queen Amidala as that fig is fantastic - and the Royal robes leg element hasn't yet been used again as far as I'm aware. Even the hair is perfect!

The Boba Fett that's currently winning is nice - but not the best Star Wars figure. I guess that's the difference between the previous 'classic' vote and this one - people may just be voting for the character they liked most rather than the best designed minifig and Boba Fett has always had a massive following.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ahsoka doesn't have the nostalgia but man is it a gooood looking figure

Gravatar
By in United States,

I do love a Gammorean Guard, too.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Tough from that list I would have to say concept Boba Fett because it is a neat minifig but 2 Vader’s really? I get it sorta but Oola (That person was named Oola??!??!??!!) and we don’t have any Jedi really no Luke Han or Leia I understand how it works but the selection is kinda sad. I am kinda weird liking the concept Boba Fett I just think it is different and interesting.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@The Rancor the resistance bomber is an amazing set with amazing crew [minus holdo and poe holdo wasn’t even in the bomber scene] I would’ve voted for any of them in a heartbeat.

Gravatar
By in United States,

DJ from the DJ polybag of this year

Gravatar
By in United States,

Boba Fett for me. My next choices were Queen Amidala and the newer version of Darth Vader. However, I felt like this list was not really representative of the greatest Star Wars minifigs. No Darth Maul? No Stormtrooper?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like the old Jango Fett figure from 2002. I'm a sucker for the older look of lego star wars. I like the first iteration of the phase I clone trooper, also.

Gravatar
By in United States,

How in the world did the Shadow ARF Trooper get on the list? It's a woefully unremarkable figure.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think the pilot from the u-wing microfighter, just because of that spectacular helmet mould, which I still can't believe they made specificallt to be released solely in a set costing just £9.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can't bring myself to vote for any of these -- most of them feel as if they are more popular because of the character themselves, not the nature of the minifigure.

A great example of the dichotomy - the original LEGO Dengar minifigure (2006) is one of my favorite minifigures of all time, because I couldn't get past that ninja hood! I had very little interest in the source character at the time, but the minifigure design interested me enough to make me curious about him. :)

I like Ashoka, but I thought her minifig was lackluster though, in contrast, and while the newer Boba Fett figs have amazing printing, the innacurate jetpack kills me every time. :/

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The Vader vote is definitely split between the two versions, whereas the white Boba is obviously not as loved as the "real" one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Going to have to go with the classic Vader. Not the one I had but pretty close. Also, this was the Vader from the classic Lego Star wars games, I believe and I loved those games so extra bonus points!

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

Not voting. My two favourites didn't make the shortlist: Standard Stormtrooper and R2-D2.
Also, the article is again showing one of the options, potentially affecting the results.

Gravatar
By in United States,

wonder if it's possible to skew the results? even though i'm logged in, i'm able to vote again (only way to see the results). dunno if the additional votes count, but if so . . . .

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Newest Darth Maul? Because of the face? Please run a poll for creepiest figure.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Boba Fett for freaking sure! Cool to see it at the top. Not surprising. It’s an excellent figure indeed.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Still think 'Ahsoka' sounds like a brand of water-pistol...

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Not voting based on only one set owned.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I would have voted for concept Boba Fett if only they had included a white range finder.

Gravatar
By in United States,

With the extensive, detailed printing, I had to go with the #75060 Boba Fett...although this was a tough list to start with.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Voted for UCS Boba Fett but 75183 Darth Vader, TLJ Finn and Cornelia Qi’Ra are great too

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Bah. Was hoping for a Bacta tank Luke. Damaged Darth Vader or celebration solo

Gravatar
By in United States,

Are these all the options for Star Wars?

boba obviously but queen amidala?
