Get Your Hands Dirty With The Pit Crew of 75325 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter

Tucked in Peli Motto’s Hangar 3-5 at Mos Eisley Spaceport were the remnants of an N-1 Starfighter. With the Razor Crest exploded into tiny fragments, Din Djarin needed a new ride and this ex-Naboo spacecraft fits the bill.

Coming with three brand new minifigs and one returning figure, the set offers an interesting assortment of characters for the minifigure collector.

BD Droid

BD units were a type of explorer droid who were designed for all terrains. Although unnamed by LEGO, this droid is BD-72 and lived with Peli Motto on Mos Eisley.

The single stud molded elements offer a great option to add small characters into the lineup. Joining the likes of BB-8 and D-O is another droid – the BD unit.

The most notable features are the large photoreceptor and holoprojector on the head of the droid. These aspects are captured by the small molded features with an overlying print. BD units have bipedal motion but these would be too small for the character, so the legs are molded together with a single anti-stud that allows it to be attached to other LEGO bricks. BD-72 has blue and gray markings which are printed on all surfaces of the piece giving it just the right amount of detail for its size.

Grogu

If you thought a baby Ewok was cute, you didn’t stand a chance with a baby Yoda. This adorable green alien stole the hearts of fans of all ages – even middle-aged men – and became one of the main characters for The Mandalorian series.

Although the baby body has been used since 2016, it was a surprise to see it repurposed for Grogu. It was the first time the body was molded in dark tan and the hands were added in sand green. The front of the body was printed to represent the hood on Grogu’s robe. In order to get the head proportional to the body, a new mold had to be created. It is similar to the Clone Wars style Yoda in that the head is a rubbery material.

This version has been included in a variety of other sets – 75292 The Razor Crest75299 Trouble on Tatooine, 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser, 75318 The Child – and has been unchanged since its introduction.

Peli Motto

Introduced during the first season of The Mandalorian, Peli Motto was an engineer and mechanic. She helped watch over Grogu and also got Mando back in the air.

Peli Motto (sw1210)

Peli wore a brown jumpsuit with brown gloves and brown boots and had a blue undershirt. The LEGO version captures these features with plain reddish-brown legs and a unique torso print. She comes with dark brown hands to represent the gloves. Around her waist is a dark brown utility belt that was first introduced in 2017 primarily for Batman minifigures.

The figure comes with a unique dual-sided head with a toothy grin on one side and a smile on the reverse. Lastly, she features long dark brown curly hair with a new hair element that was introduced this year and only included on one other figure – a Disney princess mini-doll. Peli comes accessorized with a flat silver wrench.

The Mandalorian

Din Djarin – Mandalorian, bounty hunter, and guardian – is the focus of the hit Disney+ series and has worked his way into numerous sets over the past three years.

The Mandalorian (sw1212)

Like the others that came before him (in 75299 Trouble on Tatooine75312 Boba Fett’s Starship, 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser, and 75321 The Razor Crest Microfighter), this version of The Mandalorian comes with a dark brown body with silver Beskar armor comprising his plated vest, pauldrons, vambraces, gauntlets, and greaves. His bandolier is printed across the torso and gives the figure a good amount of detail. Accessory-wise he comes with a pearl dark gray jetpack element to represent the remote-controlled JT-12 and a darksaber.

The last time we looked at Din Djarin we hinted that the best way to improve upon his design was to include a printed head. Of course, the rumor at the time suggested that was going to be the case with this set, and rumors proved to be true as this version comes with a unique head print under the helmet.

While they aren’t the most exciting minifigures, the new additions are nice for completionists and the updated The Mandalorian is a must-have. Overall if you are just after the minifigs, we’d recommend trying to buy them separately on the secondhand market.
