LEGO Star Wars 2007

Updated on January 06, 2014

It had been 30 years since the original Star Wars movie was released in theatres and changed the science fiction genre forever. Rather than flooding the market with an enormous amount of building sets, LEGO’s design team put together a group of models fitting the memorable vehicles found within the Star Wars Universe. They would draw their inspiration from the original trilogy, prequels and expanded universe.

LEGO Star Wars AT-ST 7657 Box

AT-ST

Item #: 7657
Affiliation: Episode V-VI
Ages: 7-12
Pieces: 244
Minifigures:

  1. AT-ST Pilot

This was the first AT-ST Pilot minifigure to appear in an AT-ST building set. Besides coming with the pilot assigned to drive the All Terrain Scout Transports, this model has a lot of interactive features built into its design; the cockpit can rotate, movable legs replicate its distinct “chicken” walk, the side and front guns are posable and the cockpit hatch opens up.

Clone Troopers Battle Pack

Item #: 7655
Affiliation: Episode III
Ages: 7655
Pieces: 58
Minifigures:

  1. Clone Trooper (2)
  2. Shock Trooper
  3. Star Corps Trooper

This set and the Droids Battle Pack would be the first of the popular LEGO Star Wars Battle Packs. These building sets are often cheaper and include fewer pieces than larger sets, but make it easier to "building your army". They typically come with several generic minifigures and a couple smaller vehicles, outposts or both.


The Clone Troopers Battle Pack came with 5 minifigures, a two seat speeder and a turret. This was one of the first sets to include the new blaster design x1740 and blaster rifle x1741. Along with the blasters, one of the Clone Troopers was given a pair of electrobinoculars (they are actually plastic).

Droids Battle Pack

Item #: 7654
Affiliation: Episode III
Ages: 6-12
Pieces: 102
Minifigures:

  1. Battle Droids (4)

  2. Super Battle Droids (3)

To complement the Clone Trooper Battle Pack, LEGO released the Droids Battle Pack at that the same time. Now builders could create a small scale battle using their LEGOs. With 7 droid minifigures, this set would contain more figures than any other Battle Pack. Along with the 7 droids, a Droid Tank and STAP (Version II) could be assembled with the bricks. Although LEGO is known for their innovative building designs, the box shows a STAP fighter without a transparent brick holding it upright. In the actual design, the model will fall over without this piece snapped into place under the droids standing platform.

General Grievous Starfighter

Item #: 7656
Affiliation: Episode III
Ages: 7-12
Pieces: 232
Minifigures:

  1. General Grievous

This was the first LEGO building set of the Soulless One. The persona starfighter of General Grievous was a heavily modified Belbullab-22. It was already a fast, agile vehicle with a heavy arsenal before Grievous’ modifications made it even more powerful. The model had moving gun turrets and the rear landing fin could be retracted. Minifigures could be placed in the cockpit by sliding the upper section forward.

Hoth Rebel Base

Item #: 7666
Affiliation: Episode V
Ages: 8-12
Pieces: 548
Minifigures:

  1. Luke Skywalker (Pilot)

  2. Dack Ralter

  3. Hoth Rebel Soldier (2)

  4. Snowtrooper (2)

  5. K-3PO

This would be the first LEGO model of Echo Base. Although Hoth would have been a more appropriate name for this set, since the only part of the base is the front gates. The gates can open and close, so you can lock Luke outsider overnight. The set also comes with an Imperial Probe Droid, an E-Web Heavy Repeating Blaster, a laser cannon and one Rebel Snowspeeder. The K-3PO and flesh colored Dack Ralter minifigures made their first appearance in this set.

LEGO Star Wars Imperial Landing Craft 7659 Box

Imperial Landing Craft

Item #: 7659
Affiliation: Episodes V-VI
Ages: 8-12
Pieces: 471
Minifigures:

  1. TIE Pilot

  2. Stormtrooper (2)

  3. Sandtrooper (2)

The Imperial Landing Craft was released under the Classic Star Wars line, but it did not actually appear in the original trilogy. This is a model of the Sentinel-Class Landing Craft and not the Lambda-Class T-4a Shuttle. While the Lambda shuttle was utilized for troop transport, it was more commonly used for diplomats and high ranking officials. The Sentinel was deployed by the military for moving troops, small vehicles, and supplies. To show off its military application, this model comes with two blasters, launching missiles and is capable of dropping bombs from two compartments underneath. The hull has opening doors on both sides, to quickly deploy the troops being carried into battle. Like the more commonly recognized Lambda Shuttle, the side wings could be lowered or raised by using a dial.

Jedi Starfighter & Hyperdrive Booster Ring

Item #: 7661
Affiliation: Episode III
Ages: 9-12
Pieces: 575
Minifigures:

  1. Obi-Wan Kenobi

  2. Kit Fisto

  3. R4-G9 (Head)

This would be the first time a standard LEGO building set of a Jedi Starfighter was not paired with an enemy fighter. However, a Jedi Starfighter is a relatively small craft and not equipped with a hyperdrive, so LEGO included the Hyperdrive Booster Ring. The Hyperdrive has opening connecting plates to secure the starfighter for traveling to distant star systems, but it is also equipped with flick-fire missiles. The starfighter itself is the Eta-2 Actis Class Light Interceptor that was flown by Obi-Wan Kenobi, to find General Grievous on the planet Utupau. It has retractable landing gear, an opening cockpit and the wings can be moved into several positions.

Naboo N-1 Starfighter & Vulture Droid

Item #: 7660
Affiliation: Episode I
Ages: 8-12
Pieces: 280
Minifigures:

  1. Anakin Skywalker

  2. Naboo Fighter Pilot

  3. R2-D2

There have been lots of Vulture Droid and Naboo fighter models, since the first LEGO Star Wars sets were released in 1999. This was the third design used for building a Vulture Droid. Its wings could be moved to transition from walker mode, attack mode, and flight mode. Despite this complex design, it still used the old flick-fire missiles. The R2-D2 minifigure is an essential piece to operating the Naboo N-1 Starfighter; there was a release mechanism that detached R2-D2 from the ship and pushing him backwards fired the Naboo Starfighter’s missiles.

Republic Cruiser

Item #: 7665
Affiliation: Episode I
Ages: 9-14
Pieces: 919
Minifigures:

  1. Qui-Gon Jinn

  2. Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan)

  3. Maoi Madakor

  4. Antidar Williams

  5. R2-R7

This was the first LEGO building set based on the Consular-Class Cruiser. This was one of the first spaceships scene by audiences in the new prequels, but it was quickly destroyed before enjoying much screen time. The Republic Cruiser was used to transport ambassadors, diplomats and Jedi Knights to their negotiation across the galaxy. The model incorporated laser cannons that could extend from a hidden position, a rotating sensor dish, opening cockpit, working landing gear, and an escape pod. The top of the model comes off to reveal cargo containers and a mini space speeder. The Antidar Williams, Maoi Madakor and R2-R7 Minifigures would be released for the first time in this set. For those who are interested in variant products, some of these sets accidentally included the Episode III Obi-Wan Kenobi (with beard) rather than the clean shaven Padawan.

Sith Infiltrator

Item #: 7663
Affiliation: Episode I
Ages: 8-12
Pieces: 310
Minifigures:

  1. Darth Maul

  2. Sith Probe Droid (3)

This remake of the Sith Infiltrator 7151 from the original 1999 release was an exclusive set that could only be bought at Woolworths located in the United Kingdom. Although a mini building set was released in 2004, this would only be the second time fans could buy a regular building set of the model. The Scimitar was the personal starship of Darth Maul and came with all the things he would need to hunt down Jedi or fleeing princesses. The set includes three probe droids to cover a larger area and a Sith speeder to quickly run down his prey. While a hatch opens and closes to store or release the speeder and probes, the Scimitar also comes with folding wings, functional landing gear and flick-fire missiles.

TIE Crawler

Item #: 7664
Affiliation: Expanded Universe
Ages: 8-12
Pieces: 548
Minifigures:

  1. Shadow Stormtrooper (2)

The Century Tank was referred to as the TIE Crawler, because of its similarity in appearance to the famous TIE Fighter used heavily during the reign of the Galactic Empire. These vehicles saw use after the Empire’s fall and by the confederates during the Second Galactic Civil War. Besides the standard TIE cockpit this building set also came with movable tank treads, a flick-fire missile and two hidden laser cannons, that can be pulled out of the track frame and rotated. The TIE Crawler Building Set is highly collectible. It was only available for a short period of time and the Shadow Stormtroopers were released for the first time in this set. The TIE Crawler was the first set to be entirely based on the Star Wars Expanded Universe, previous sets had minifigures of characters found in the movies.

Trade Federation MTT

Item #: 7662
Affiliation: Episode I
Ages: 9-14
Pieces: 1,330
Minifigures:

  1. Pilot Battle Droid (2)

  2. Security Battle Droid (2)

  3. Battle Droids (16)

  4. Droideka (2)

At its release, this was by far the best LEGO model of the Trade Federation MTT to hit store shelves. These behemoth transport ships were designed to drop 112 Battle Droids into the thick of battle. With nine opening hatches and a sliding rack, this model could carry 16 Battle Droid Minifigures. Since it is a transport vehicle, the droids are a major draw for this set and, up till this point, contained the most Battle Droids ever released in one set. The sixteen standard Battle Droids were the first to implement the horizontal hand, allowing them to hold blasters. All the minifigures were redesigned in this set. For faster movement, the set also contained a small speeder to transport a command satellite, weapons or up to eight Battle Droids. Kids might have been disappointed when advertisements were saying this toy was for kids 8-12, but the box had the real age of 9-14. What a difference a year makes.

Y-Wing Fighter

Item #: 7658
Affiliation: Episodes IV-VI
Ages: 8-12
Pieces: 454
Minifigures:

  1. Dutch Vander

  2. R4

As the workhorse of the Rebel Alliance, the Y-Wing was used as a fighter and bomber for most of the war. What these ships lacked in maneuverability, they made up for in their ability to take a pounding. This set was made for the 30th anniversary of the original Star Wars movie and would be the first regular building set to feature a Y-Wing Fighter by itself. Even though the box has a LEGO yellow skinned Dutch Vander, his minifigure was given a newly designed flesh toned head. The box also put the R4 droid’s head on backwards, so I would not use the box as a reference for this model. This Y-Wing may not have been paired with a TIE Advanced Fighter, but it still comes with lots of fun pieces. The cockpit turret can rotate, bombs can be dropped from underneath, and it has flick-fire missiles.

Ultimate Collector's Series

The Ultimate Collector series models have always been larger in scale, more detailed in design and pricier than the standard building sets. This year’s UCS would produce one of the largest sets sold in LEGO history, the most expensive and incorporate an electric motor.

AT-AT Motorized Walker

Item #: 10178
Affiliation: Episodes V-VI
Ages: 14+
Pieces: 1,137
Minifigures:

  1. AT-AT Pilot

  2. General Veers

  3. Snowtrooper

  4. Luke Skywalker

With the previous LEGO AT-AT building set already huge in scale, something special had to be done for the UCS. What better gimmick than to have the AT-AT walk on its own? By installing a motor that runs on 6 AA batteries, this model could simulate the AT-AT’s awe inspiring walk as it heads straight toward the helpless minifigures standing in its path. In addition to the motorized legs, the AT-At also had an opening cockpit and rotating laser cannon. Luke Skywalker comes with a grappling hook, so he can take it down like he did in the movie. This would be the first set to include a General Veers minifigure. By 2009 this set became so popular that it was on backorder until 2010.

Millennium Falcon

Item #: 10179
Affiliation: Episodes IV-VI
Ages: 16+
Pieces: 5,195
Minifigures:

  1. Han Solo

  2. Chewbacca

  3. Luke Skywalker

  4. Princess Leia

  5. Obi-Wan Kenobi

To make an UCS of the most famous hunk of junk in the galaxy, it needs to be just as epic as the movie it comes from. LEGO did not disappoint. At 5,195 pieces, the Millennium Falcon would be the second largest LEGO Set ever released, but it was able to easily secure the most expensive spot. (Taj Mahal #10198 is the largest set with 5,922 pieces) Builders needed to follow a 311 page instruction manual to assemble this set. This toy came with a rotating radar dish, swiveling quad-laser cannons on the top and bottom, an extending boarding ramp and removable cockpit canopy. Rather than having a typical stand support this model for display, the landing gear was used. This UCS was the first time a Star Wars vehicle had been build to scale with the minifigures. The immense size allowed for amazing details, helping replicate the technology and design of the movie. For collectors, the first batch sold through LEGO’s website came with a First Edition Certificate of Authenticity.

Promotional

Promotional sets given away at special events and randomly at stores are always a prize for collectors. This year LEGO focused on the cast of memorable characters found within the Star Wars galaxy. The promotional minifigures this year are extremely rare and hard to find.

Item #: 4521221
Affiliation: Complete Saga
Ages: N/A
Pieces: 1
Minifigures:

  1. C-3PO

Unlike most promotional Star Wars LEGO sets, the Chrome Plated C-3PO was not available at a convention, an individual store, or special magazine offer. 10,000 Gold Chrome Plated C-3PO Minifigures were randomly placed in different LEGO Star Wars sets. In 2007, people from all over the world would have the opportunity to be surprised as they opened their LEGO Building Sets and discovered a rare minifigure hidden inside. Unless it was bought by a collector, who never opens the box. They would never know what treasure is buried inside.

Ages: N/A
Pieces: 26
Minifigures:

  1. Darth Vader

  2. Royal Guards (2)

  3. Stormtroopers (2)

This promotional set was only available at the Celebration IV from May 24th to May 28th of 2007. This 5 day gathering at the Los Angeles Convention Center celebrates the Star Wars Saga. Each day LEGO randomly selected 100 winners from a raffle. These winners could then purchase this collection of 6 minifigures at the LEGO stand for $49.99. The set is simply minifigures placed in a diorama display. Only 500 of these LEGO sets were produced and sold, making them extremely rare.

      I saw the Milenium Falcon 10179 assembled at FAO Schwartz. It was impressive.
