Last weekend, I finally started watching Star Wars: The Mandalorian. I know that I’m now behind all of the cool kids and that everyone else has seen it, but eh – it’s not getting Disney+ where I am. Anyhoo, after a few episodes, I needed to own a piece of the series. And where do you go when you want Star Wars merchandise? LEGO. Specifically, the LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack.

Since I wasn’t in the market for a massive LEGO set, I settled on the 102-piece Mandalorian Battle Pack (designated 75267). It’s a nice little set that comes with four Mandalorian warriors, a speeder bike, and some spare-bits-rubble that LEGO calls a “defence fort.” For me, grabbing this was more of a symbol of the series and something to put on my shelf to remind me of the series.
Each of the four differently-coloured and styled warriors includes a little cape and their own blaster. If you’ve ever wanted to know what the other Mandalorians looked like under their helmets, well, you can’t. All of the included heads are made out of black plastic with no features or faces. Some may see this is a letdown, but it’s a great way to stay true to the Mandalorian code.
Even the little speeder bike, which looks like it’s facing backwards, is adorable and also has small firing guns. And then there’s the rubble – err – fort that sure is made out of a few LEGO bricks. Yup, sure is.
Where are you, Mando?
While it’s a fun little package, it doesn’t include the titular Mandalorian hero. To get one of those, you’ll need to fork out a little more for the AT-ST Raider set or the awesome-looking Razor Crest. I don’t know where I’m going to put it in my smaller-than-a-matchbox-flat, but I really want to get my hands on the Razor Crest – it includes an adorable ‘Baby Yoda’ Minifigure.
It’s worth grabbing one of the LEGO Mandalorian Battle Pack sets. I’m happy with my purchase and I can’t wait to have little battles against Clone Troopers and that Jango chap that did remove his helmet like all of the time.
