Making its first appearance as long ago as the second season of The Clone Wars in 2010, it wasn’t until the animated series got its reprieve an entire decade later, when the seventh season (which actually comprised of the remaining twelve episodes that should have formed the show’s sixth and final season), that the face-off depicted in 75310 Duel On Mandalore saw the light of day.
Falling afoul of Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm, the show was canceled in 2013 – a week after the conclusion of the fifth season – and the 13 completed episodes of season six were set aside. Languishing in the Unknown Regions for a year, a broadcast deal was negotiated between Disney, Lucasfilm, German TV network Super RTL, ABC Television, and Netflix, and the missing episodes – dubbed The Lost Missions – were aired in Germany and North America early in 2014.
This remained as the status quo, with fans left with the lingering knowledge that there were still tales to be told and The Clone Wars wouldn’t be over – despite the issuing of Order 66 – until the final installments were released.
News of that the missing episodes, officially named The Final Season so there would be no ambiguity – came during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con in 2018 when the show’s series’ supervising director, Dave Filoni, announced its revival.
Beginning in early February 2020 and culminating on May 4th, a dozen new episodes were broadcast around the world, bringing closure to fans and the war that divided the Star Wars galaxy.
Rather than having the chronological order that the other seasons conformed to, the seventh season acted as a denouement for a number of gaps in the overall story and consisted of a trio of four-episode story arcs. The last act explained how Ahsoka liberated Mandalore from Darth Maul (as well as how she and Captian Rex survived the turmoil of Order 66) and saw the Mandalorian throne room in the Sundari Royal Palace as the location of a pivotal sequence of events, which LEGO has depicted in this addition to the LEGO Star Wars theme.

With two bags, a couple of stickers and a small instruction book, there isn’t much to this set and the distracted builder will be able to complete the build in less time than it takes to watch the tenth and eleventh episodes, in which this set appears, of the seventh season of The Clone Wars.
The modest throne of Mandalore is reasonably well represented by LEGO, with its simple shape and brutal aesthetics portrayed in light gray slopes, the leaf elements and window element add a touch of color to the monolithic wall that backs up the playset. Add to this the Mandalorian sarcophagus – the Force-proof vault that a captured Maul is imprisoned in – plus two minifigures and you’ve constructed the entire set.
Returning unchanged from her last appearance in 75283 Armored Assault Tank (AAT) is Ahsoka Tano, whose tentacled headpiece is still the one designed for sw0309 Shaak-Ti in 2011. Alongside the Jedi Knight is Darth Maul, who was resurrected in the fourth season of The Clone Wars and given a pair of mechanical legs – which LEGO does a surprisingly good job of replicating. This time around he has a brand new torso print to enjoy.
Being the smallest of all the LEGO Star Wars sets released in the Summer wave in 2021, fans of the theme were not impressed with the $19.99 price tag. Commentary surrounding 75310 Duel on Mandalore suggested that LEGO was cashing in on the popularity of the two included minifigures, and the community compared this set to other sets of similar part and minifigure counts to illustrate that it was around 25% more expensive than it needed to be.
On its own, it isn’t a strong set – the only real play feature is the so-called popout window, and the gun cache hidden under the throne doesn’t add much excitement. Regardless of the proportions of the throne, which is somewhat oversized due to the nature of LEGO bricks, it is the vault that is the highlight of the set. It perfectly reflects the original seen in Shattered, and with Maul’s minifigural eyes peaking out of the windowed sticker, it is almost worth buying the set for this accessory alone.
This new set is available now at LEGO.com, Target in the United States, Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Entertainment Earth (pre-order), BigW, Argos, Barnes & Noble or a nearby LEGO branch and get your’s today (MSRP $19.99).
