Every LEGO Star Wars Droid Set: The Ultimate Guide and List

Buildable LEGO Star Wars Droid sets capture the details of the galaxy’s most lovable, fearsome, stealthy and formidable droids. LEGO launched the first ever buildable droid, TECHNIC Pit Droid 8000, in 2000 during the early years of LEGO’s Star Wars licensing arrangement. After producing 7 TECHNIC style droids between 2000 and 2003, the toy company stops producing buildable droids.

Starting in 2012, after a 9 year hiatus, LEGO abandons TECHNIC style droid sets. Instead, the company begins emphasizing more of a sculpture and display piece approach to most LEGO Star Wars droid sets. Most of the droid sets from 2012 to the present include a display plaque, minifigure version of the character, and, in some cases, a buildable display stand. Although the sets emphasize display, they typically feature compartments and some moving components as well.

Let’s explore EVERY buildable LEGO Star Wars droid ever made by the toy company, ranging from multiple R2-D2s to BD-1 to droid TECHNIC sets. As of 2023, LEGO has released 15 droid sets.

The droids utilize a protective shield and may curl up and roll around in order to assume a new position during battle.

The droid indeed folds up, just like in the movies, and comes equipped with two of its own buildable tools. Some builders report that the folding capability is a bit clumsy and fickle. Another limitations of the set is the Pit Droid doesn’t stand very easily (if at all!) unsupported, so you’ll need to prop it up against the wall in order to display the set.
