LEGO Star Wars: Every Luke Skywalker Minifigure, Ranked


There are hundreds of playable minifigures in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, including over a dozen versions of series protagonist Luke Skywalker, though some variations are more recognizable than others. Most of The Skywalker Saga‘s main characters have a multitude of different costumes, particularly those that appear frequently throughout the various time periods shown in the Star Wars franchise. The game also features dozens of minor characters, though, many of whom all but dedicated Star Wars fans might not even know the name of. It’s little wonder a good deal of LEGO Star Wars players consider The Skywalker Saga to be the ultimate conclusion of the game series.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Initially conceptualized to bring all nine mainline Star Wars films together in one game, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was announced in 2019 to a hefty amount of excitement from fans. Both those who had played through all the previous LEGO Star Wars games and those who had yet to experience them were seemingly looking forward to an easy way to access the franchise. That made it all the more disappointing when The Skywalker Saga was repeatedly delayed – first to 2021, then to Spring 2022, when it finally released in early April to mostly-positive reviews. Despite its positive reviews, The Skywalker Saga‘s development was overshadowed by allegations of crunch at developer TT Games.

In the months leading up to its release, reports indicated that LEGO Skywalker Saga‘s delays were due to crunch and a messy production, and by the time it was officially released, its hectic development was obvious. Despite the massive scale of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, its levels lacked polish in the eyes of reviewers, and the sometimes-clunky mechanics, lack of character customization, and absence of character-specific abilities have been criticized among returning players of the LEGO Star Wars franchise. Despite that, the sheer amount of content to explore provides a compelling reason to pour a good amount of hours into the game. This is especially true for Star Wars fans who want to collect every playable character.

#10: LEGO Skywalker Saga’s Training Flashback Luke Just Isn’t Special

Out of the around 300 playable characters in LEGO Skywalker Saga, not all of them stand out as particularly identifiable. Training Flashback Luke Skywalker is one such example. Pulled from a brief sequence in Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker in which Luke and Leia are seen training in the ways of the Force, LEGO Star Wars‘ Training Flashback Luke has his face covered with a helmet and little else in the way of distinguishing features. Furthermore, his lightsaber is blue rather than the green one included in the original movie scene, one of several small bugs and errors found throughout LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

#9: Old Luke Doesn’t Bring Out The Character’s Best In LEGO Star Wars

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga doesn’t exclusively star characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. There are characters from the prequels, the original LEGO Star Wars games, and a Skywalker Saga DLC also added Rogue One characters. The sequel movies are included as well, and that means the older version of Luke Skywalker is playable. Not only that, but he comes in four different styles: Ach-To, Rainboat, Flashback, and Crait. Unfortunately, even that can’t make up for the fact that this iteration of Luke doesn’t look as distinguishable as most of the others highlighted in The Skywalker Saga.

#8: Episode V Luke Doesn’t Stand Out Much In LEGO Skywalker Saga

Arguably, the Minifigures of Luke Skywalker from the original Star Wars trilogy are the most well-known of those seen in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Out of all Luke’s costumes from that era, though, some stand out more than others. Luke’s Episode V look is less notable than many of his other, more familiar appearances. Making the playable minifigures easily recognizable is important, especially withSkywalker Saga‘s Galactic Edition adding more new characters to keep track of.

That said, Luke’s Episode V minifigure does come with two variations, featuring the jacket either on or off. There are quite a few playable characters in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga who also display something similar. Leia, for example, can either have her hat on or off when wearing her Endor outfit. The Skywalker Saga arguably makes up for its lack of character creation by including so many incredibly specific characters to play as, though that hasn’t kept returning fans from hoping to see the customization mechanic make a comeback.

#7: Ceremony Luke Calls Back To LEGO Star Wars’ Original Ending

The majority of Luke’s playable Minifigures in The Skywalker Saga are Jedi, one of several useful character classes in LEGO Skywalker Saga. Ceremony Luke stands out as one of the few that aren’t, alongside the other versions of the character that appear in Episode IV. That, plus his outfit – based on the one he’s only seen wearing briefly in the ending of the film – makes him one of the more distinctive Luke Minifigures to appear throughout LEGO Star Wars.

#6: LEGO Star Wars’ Stormtooper Luke Is Fun & Unique

Luke’s stormtrooper disguise stands apart even more than the rest. Falling under the Villain class and featuring two variations, with or without a helmet, it’s a fun design and an entertaining reference to one of the more unforgettable scenes from the original Star Wars film trilogy.LEGO Skywalker Saga‘s Villain class can be upgraded and allows him to use special terminals that Luke otherwise wouldn’t be able to, making him a useful character to play as in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

#5: Hoth & Endor Luke Are Memorable Costumes In The Skywalker Saga

Although they may not exactly be considered staples of Luke’s character, the attire he wears on some of the original Star Wars‘ trilogy’s planets – namely Hoth and Endor – are an exciting departure from his more standard outfits. They’re some of his Minifigure’s more memorable looks in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Hoth Luke’s outfit is comprised of winter clothing and snow goggles, while his Endor appearance includes a camouflage poncho.

Endor and Hoth are two of many hub worlds in LEGO Star Wars‘ Skywalker Saga. It seems only fitting that Luke should get distinct ensembles based on his time spent there. There are over 20 of these hub worlds in total, each one serving as an open space for exploration, quest completion, and free play. Other well-known planets from the Star Wars series serve a similar purpose, such as Coruscant and Tatooine.

#4: Rebel Pilot Luke Is From The Skywalker Saga’s Most Significant Scene

Luke Skywalker destroying the Death Star is perhaps one of the most well-known sequences from Star Wars: Episode IV, and the Rebel Pilot outfit he wears during those events is equally noteworthy. Like his stormtrooper disguise in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, it’s an example of how an otherwise distinct character wearing a familiar get-up adds a layer of interest to the Minifigure. As one of the few Hero class Luke Minifigures, he also has a grappling ability that helps players get around and collect every LEGO minikit in The Skywalker Saga.

#3: LEGO Star Wars’ Episode IV Luke Is Star Wars’ Most Iconic Character

Luke’s initial outfit in Episode IV, which he sports on Tatooine and throughout the majority of the film’s runtime, may very well be what most Star Wars fans remember him in. One of the playable forms of Luke Skywalker in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga wears a detailed replication of that outfit. As Episode IV Luke has yet to hone his Jedi abilities, he’s still a Hero class Minifigure alongside other well-known characters like Leia, Finn, and Poe.

#2: Episode VI Luke From LEGO Star Wars Looks As Powerful As His Abilities Feel

Episode VI Luke is a stark contrast to Episode IV Luke. A Jedi class character, he now sports all black as opposed to his counterpart’s mostly white attire. Like many other Minifigures in LEGO Star Wars, this iteration also has other variations in-game. The Jabba’s Palace edition of Episode VI Luke wears a cloak with a hood. While he may not be one of the funniest characters in LEGO’s Skywalker Saga, he’s a powerful Jedi to play as and his appearance communicates that well.

#1: Yoda Backpack Luke In The Skywalker Saga Brings Out The Best Of Star Wars

The best playable Minifigure in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga technically incorporates two famous Star Wars characters. Luke in his Episode V outfit carries Yoda around, one of the most popular Minifigures from previous LEGO Star Wars games. The Yoda Backpack variant of Luke is unique to look at and fun to run around as, which is especially important given how much space there is to explore and the sheer amount of content to discover. Ultimately, there’s no shortage of compelling characters to choose from in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and the video game’s best versions of Luke Skywalker are barely even scratching the surface.
