The Book of Boba Fett has concluded its first-season run, to a mixed reaction from fans. While the episodes largely centering around Boba Fett himself were deemed hit or miss - with the season finale being the lowest rated episode - the chapters following Din Djarin were met with thunderous applause. Mando's presence was fully expected, but few predicted that "Chapter 5" would essentially serve as the beginning of The Mandalorian Season 3.
Life was rough for Mando after the riveting conclusion of Season 2; he had given up his son, his ship was destroyed, and was separated from his people. Boba Fett took steps to rectify each of these problems, to varying degrees of success for the character. After being excommunicated from his covert by The Armorer, Din voyaged to Tatooine to meet with Peli Motto, who claimed to have a replacement for his Razor Crest.
What she actually had wasn't what Mando anticipated: an old N-1 Naboo starfighter. Despite his initial misgivings, Din helped the mechanic repair the ship and took it for a test run, eventually electing to keep the ship on the merits of its finest quality: "Wizard." A dome was left in the back of the ship for what eventually became Grogu's seat, and after seeking out his kid the Mandalorian return to Tatooine to aid Boba Fett in his war against the Pykes.
Star Wars defined the concept of capitalizing on a brand's popularity through merchandise. The LEGO Star Wars license has been an incredibly popular and profitable one for both LEGO and Lucasfilm, an arrangement that certainly won't be ending any time soon. In honor of The Book of Boba Fett's conclusion, brick sets for the newest iconography have been unveiled.

Mando & Boba Return to LEGO
The iconic duo of Mandalorian warriors last came in minifigure form together when the set for Boba Fett's Starship was released last Fall. It's ironic that both new sets come under the banner of The Book of Boba Fett when they effectively debuted in episodes of The Mandalorian, but they were among the series' most memorable set pieces and are worthy of being immortalized in brick.
Mando's N-1 Starfighter not only appears to be screen-accurate, but also marks the first time that any piece of merchandise features Din Djarin with the Darksaber. While it's disappointing that LEGO has yet to create a unique mold for the storied weapon, the piece will still serve as a fine addition to fans' collections. Everyone knew the back seat of the N-1 would belong to Grogu at some point, though it was shocking that he returned so soon in Boba Fett. That being said, it wouldn't be appropriate to have a build of the ship without him.
Boba Fett's Throne Room is an interesting case. The minifigures presented are incredible, ignoring the slight continuity errors with the color of Fett's helmet and Fennec's hair piece. Fans will have the opportunity to recreate Lord Fett's takeover of the palace with a play feature that flings lard Bib Fortuna off of the throne, leaving room for Boba to take his place as Fennec drinks her spotchka.
Both sets come at fairly reasonable prices, as far as LEGO goes. What the builds lack in piece count, they make up for in unique minifigures - both sets offer the debuts of several characters in brick form. For those holding out for an opportunity to get the sets on a less steep dime, look around for inevitable deals as the months go by. The future is now for Mando and Boba Fett, and LEGO Star Wars is going along for the ride.
All seven episodes of The Book of Boba Fett are streaming on Disney+.
