Characters of Lego Star Wars

Almost every character that appears in the game (even enemies) can be unlocked as a playable character. This page's purpose is to describe each character and give their strengths and weaknesses and also describe how to unlock them.

Contents

[edit] Qui-Gon Jinn

  • Availability: Available from the beginning.
  • Weapon: Lightsaber
  • Special: Uses the Force

Qui-Gon's first and only movie appearance is in Episode I: The Phantom Menace. He is young Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Master. In the game, like all Jedi characters, Qui-Gon Jinn is quite a versatile character. Not only can he fight up close in melee combat with his lightsaber, he is also able to deflect blaster shots back at enemies when his swing is timed correctly.

[edit] Obi-Wan Kenobi

  • Availability: Available from the beginning.
  • Weapon: Lightsaber
  • Special: Uses the Force

Obi-Wan Kenobi has the distinction of being one of a few characters to appear in all six Star Wars films. He appears first in Epsidoe IV: A New Hope as a hermit living in the vast deserts of Tatooine, where he rescues Luke Skywalker from Tusken Raiders and eventually teaches him the ways of the Jedi. In the game, he plays exactly the same as Qui-Gon Jinn.

[edit] TC-14

  • Availability: Available after completing Episode I, Chapter 1
  • Weapon: None, can't attack
  • Special: Can activate Protocol droid panels.

This droid appears briefly in Episode I in both the movie and the game. Looks like a silver version of the much more popular Star Wars character, C-3PO.

[edit] Jar Jar Binks

  • Availability: Available after completing Episode I, Chapter 2
  • Weapon: None, can't attack
  • Special: Can jump really high

Jar Jar Binks is a Gungan character who is featured in Episodes 1-3 in the movies. He is considered by many to be the most annoying and pointless Star Wars character ever conceived. He is much more useful in the game, however, as he is able to jump much higher than other characters. You'll need his high-jumping abilities to pass through Episode I, Chapter 2 in Story Mode. Be careful when you use him, however, as he is unable to attack, so it's easy for him to be killed, costing you valuable Lego Studs.

[edit] Queen Amidala

  • Availability: Available after completing Episode I, Chapter 3
  • Weapon: Blaster
  • Special: Can use a grappling hook

She is the Queen of Naboo. Her first movie appearance is in Episode I, but she is in Episodes II and III as well. She is a blaster-wielding character, and as such, is able to use a grappling hook at certain areas.

[edit] Captain Panaka

  • Availability: Available after completing Episode I, Chapter 3
  • Weapon: Blaster
  • Special: Can use a grappling hook

Captain Panaka is part of the Queen's Royal Guard. He has the ability to grapple up to high places, like every other blaster character.

[edit] Padmé

  • Availability: Available for purchase (800 studs) after completing Episode I, Chapter 3
  • Weapon: Blaster
  • Special: Can use a grappling hook

Padmé is Queen Amidala. In the game, she plays exactly the same as the Queen, the only difference being her appearance.

[edit] R2-D2

  • Availability: Available after completing Episode I, Chapter 5
  • Weapon: Droid stunner (temporarily disables droids)
  • Special: Can activate Astromech droid panels. Can also hover for short distances.

R2-D2 is an Astromech Droid who appears in every Star Wars movie. He is first seen in Episode IV and is discovered by Luke after escaping from the Tantive IV with C-3PO and landing on Tatooine in an escape pod. In the game, he can deactivate droids and activate special panels for Astromech Droids.

[edit] Anakin Skywalker (Episode I)

  • Availability: Available after completing Episode I, Chapter 5
  • Weapon: None, can't attack
  • Special: Can crawl through air shafts to reach new areas.

This is young Anakin from Episode I: The Phantom Menace. In the game, he is useless as a fighter, but he is essential in order to crawl through little air shaft things to get to places other characters cannot reach.

[edit] Padmé (Battle)

  • Availability: Available after completing Episode I, Chapter 5
  • Weapon: Blaster
  • Special: Can use a grappling hook

The same as the other Padmé characters in the game, she just has a different appearance.

  • Weapon: None, can't attack
  • Special: Can activate Protocol droid panels

C-3PO is a well-known character in the Star Wars Universe who appears in all the movies. He was created by a young Anakin Skywalker in Episode I and was later fitted with the "gold plating" that he is seen most often with sometime between the events of Episodes I & II. He functions identically to TC-14 in the game.

[edit] Mace Windu

Yoda is in every Star Wars film except for Episode IV: A New Hope. He is a legendary Jedi Master who is very powerful despite his small size. In the game, he requires some skill to use, as he can be rather unwieldy at times, but he's a good character for someone who wants more of a challenge.
