Top 10 LEGO Star Wars Battle Packs

LEGO Star Wars Battle Packs have always been among the most anticipated sets from each new wave as they are the cheapest way to build an army of your favorite Minifigures. Ever since LEGO introduced the first battle packs in 2007, this type of set has been in high demand and is often the most discussed subject for each following year of LEGO Star Wars.

Just like that, after years of expectations and endless demands, LEGO finally heard our calls and announced the new 501st Clone Trooper Battle Pack! In its entirety, it will not count as a battle pack because of the price and an additional two minifigures but nevertheless, has still been classed as one by the fans.

Since the new 501st Battle Pack is the most anticipated set for this year, we will dive into the history of this type of set with our list of the best LEGO Star Wars Battle Packs. There have been a total of 26 Battle Packs in the past 13 years and while some were relatively disappointing, others remain fan-favorites years after they were retired.

10. 7668 Rebel Scout Speeder

To start off, the 7668 Rebel Scout Speeder was one of the first battle packs to ever be released. It does not stand out from a design point of view, but we consider it a top 10 for its army-building potential and the rarity of its figures.

It included four of the original Rebel Fleet Trooper minifigures which have always been rare in sets. In fact, they have appeared in no more than four or five sets in 20 years of LEGO Star Wars. Besides the minifigures, the set came with a surprisingly cool speeder with the ability to carry two troopers. I honestly consider this speeder to be one of the better-designed Speeder that LEGO has ever produced.

9. 75166 First Order Transport Speeder Battle Pack

There were a few years of LEGO sets that did not give us any impressive Battle Packs. Some had pointless minifigures, others were entirely a waste of money. Finally, in 2017, we received an outstanding army building set which, of course, became a hit.

The 75166 First Order Transport Speeder Battle Pack came with a brilliant minifigure selection. As you know, the First Order introduced incredible military characters and we finally got a chance to build an army. Besides the two Stormtroopers and the cool-looking officer, we received a rare First order Flametrooper. If you weren’t big on LEGO before, keep in mind that this was a minifigure that only appeared in large and expensive sets.

This Battle Pack was an amazing upgrade from the original First Order Battle pack which was one of those that simply did not have a suitable minifigure selection for an army building set.

Year: 2017

Piece Count: 117

Ages: 6 – 12

Minifigures: First Order Stormtrooper x2, First Order Officer, First Order Flametrooper

Original Retail Price: $14.99

8. 75167 Bounty Hunter Speeder Bike Battle Pack

This set was definitely unexpected although Bounty Hunters have always had a special place in Star Wars, and fans literally adore them. Logically, when this was announced and it included three fan-favorite characters, its success was already certain.

Overall, I feel like there is no other battle pack that could compare with this one if we compare the price to the minifigure selection. It is not one that you would buy more than once but a mandatory purchase if you love bounty hunters.

Besides the minifigures, LEGO did an outstanding job with the speeder bike although it has nothing to do with the actual movies or even The Clone Wars. It simply had a cool design and once again, added up to the low price of the set.

Year: 2017

Piece Count: 125

Ages: 6 – 12

Minifigures: Dengar, Bossk, IG-88, 4-LOM

7. 9489 Endor Rebel Trooper & Imperial Trooper Battle Pack

This battle pack surely won’t end up on everyone’s Top 10 list but I personally love it and believe it was a beautiful set overall. If you love Episode 6 and the battles on Endor, you should appreciate this set.

Unlike most battle packs, this one would hardly count as an army building set as there are minifigures from two separate factions that were not as common by themselves. Nevertheless, I feel like this is why I love this battle pack. Normally, when you get a mixed set like this one, the minifigure selection does not always impress. Here, LEGO managed to combine some great ones.

The set also included the regular Imperial Speeder Bike in brown and a small tree with a cannon. Obviously, the tree is not impressive but if you got a few of these battle packs, you could build something bigger.

6. 7655 Clone Troopers Battle Pack

The 7655 Clone Trooper Battle Pack was one of the two original battle packs released in 2007. If I had to choose one of the older battle packs to be re-released, it would definitely be this one.

It included three different types of clone troopers in the original Phase II design which was absolutely beautiful. The minifigures from this Battle Pack are on such high demand today that the price for one is astronomical.

The speeder bike and the turret structure that was also included have the old-school design features that, I believe, most of us love to this day. Overall, this Battle Pack is one of the all-time greats.

Year: 2007

Piece Count: 58

Ages: 6 – 12

Minifigures: Shock Trooper, Star Corps Trooper, Clone Trooper x2

5. 75165 Imperial Trooper Battle Pack

What a great year for battle packs we had in 2017. The 75165 Imperial Trooper Battle Pack was literally the perfect Imperial army building set you could possibly imagine.

If you wanted Stormtroopers, this was the perfect set. If you wanted the rare Death Troopers, this was also the perfect set. What else could we say? The set also included a Clone Walker with a brand new design that was very different from anything we had previously seen. Overall, this was an outstanding Battle Pack and I hope we get to see more of these in the future.

4. 75035 Kashyyyk Troopers

While this could be an unpopular choice, I feel like the 75035 Kashyyyk Troopers Battle Pack was a perfect set in every category. Normally, I rank my battle packs based on their minifigure selections but here, we had an excellent vehicle as well.

Not everyone would waste money to build a Kashyyyk Trooper army but don’t they just look awesome? The minifigures had an excellent design and the Swamp Speeder, although a smaller version, also was well-designed and could hold two figures. I personally love it when we get important vehicles in battle packs instead of pointless speeders that have never been seen on screen.

Year: 2014

Piece Count: 99

Ages: 6 – 12

Minifigures: Kashyyk Clone Trooper x2, 41st Elite Clone Trooper x2

3. 75267 Mandalorian Battle Pack

LEGO successfully made us excited about their announcement of the 2020 winter wave of sets. We got two of the most incredible battle packs and an array of other good sets.

Of course, this re-release was dedicated to the release of the first-ever live-action Star Wars show – The Mandalorian. With the high anticipation for the show, it was clear that LEGO would create a set or two and they did not disappoint. Although you do not see any particular Mandalorians from the series, the ones included in the set are incredible and it is simply too cool to see so many color-variants.

In addition, the overall printing that they did with the minifigures was great and I must say – a rarity for a battle pack. I feel like you would not usually get more than one of these but I would gladly pick up a few more of those and build a small Mandalorian army in the future if I see it on sale.

Year: 2020

Piece Count: 102

Ages: 6+

Minifigures: Mandalorian x4

2. 75266 Sith Troopers Battle Pack

The other battle pack from the 2020 winter wave was the 65266 Sith Troopers Battle Pack. Needless to say, this was also one of the most anticipated sets for this year and it did not disappoint.

We got a total of two brand new minifigure designs (two Sith Jet Troopers and a First Order Officer) and an additional Sith Trooper which is an incredible figure by itself. As mentioned above, I love it when we see small versions of important vehicles, and this battle pack included a Snowspeeder. It came in a beautiful new color-scheme that added a bit of contrast to this set.

If you want to build yourself a Sith Trooper Army, this could be the only set that will ever give you such an opportunity.

Piece Count: 105

Ages: 6+

1. 8014 Clone Walker Battle Pack

Why is such a basic-looking battle pack in the highest position? If you are new to LEGO Star Wars, you would hardly understand. When this came out in 2008 next to the new Clone Wars animated series, it took over the Star Wars community. No other set has reached so many sales, has been so demanded, or has impacted the Star Wars community like the 8014 Clone Walker Battle Pack.

Up to this day, I could hardly compare this to any other set when it comes to its army building capabilities. No wonder it was always entirely sold out and is nowadays so expensive to get. Fans have been demanding a re-release for years but unfortunately, this is unlikely to happen.

Year: 2008

Piece Count: 72

Ages: 6 – 12

Minifigures: Clone Commander, Clone Trooper x2, Clone Gunner

Original Retail Price: $11.99

Final Thoughts:

As a completely fanatic Star Wars fan, I have always dreamed of having countless minifigures and enough money to get every battle pack a hundred times. Whoever got the idea to create this series of sets in 2007 is an absolute genius.

Our list of Battle Packs was created based on our personal preferences and, of course, the impact of the sets over the Star Wars community. Your choice of 10 could be 100% different and yet, I feel like this list was sufficient enough to present the best of each era in Star Wars.

And now, with no movies to anticipate in the following couple of years, who knows what we will get in the future. Quite possibly, this could be the time when we see some of our favorite Battle Packs re-released.
