2024 LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary Exclusive Minifigure Revealed!

The previous LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary hit shelves a few years ago in 2019 (you can still find it on Amazon), which came with an exclusive minifigure version of Finn (yay…?)

Now, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of LEGO Star Wars, we’re getting a fresh update for 2024. Pre-orders for the updated 2024 Visual Dictionary have been available on Amazon since last year, but the big question mark for months has been who exactly the exclusive mystery minifigure included with the book will be.

Well, speculate no more, as today we’ve seen confirmed reports that the mystery Visual Dictionary minifigure for 2024 will be Darth Maul! (Reactions on social media are quite divided, fans seem to either love the minifigure choice or hate it).

In my opinion, Darth Maul is an excellent choice for the 25th Anniversary character for the book, considering he was one of the best parts of The Phantom Menace in 1999. (For the record, I would have been equally happy with a Qui-Gon anniversary minifigure as well).

Eagle-eyed fans will notice it’s the exact same figure as one of the greatest (and earliest) LEGO sets of all time, the #7101 Lightsaber Duel from 1999.

Fun fact – this set was $6 when it first launched 25 years ago, and now goes for well over $100 sealed. How’s that for an investment!? Should have picked up hundreds of these back when I was in 3rd grade, silly me.

One interesting thing to point out about this 25th Anniversary edition of Darth Maul – he will feature the “25 Years of LEGO Star Wars” emblem printed on his back, unlike the other anniversary minifigures that are also launching in select sets this year. This will make him an even rarer figure, if he remains the only one this year to include this logo on the back. Also, it means that his included black cape will hide this logo, unless you display it without.

Are you excited to get an exclusive 1999 version of Darth Maul with the 2024 Visual Dictionary, or were you hoping for another minifigure? Let me know in the comments below.

While I am stoked to get this classic version of Darth Maul, I have to point out that we’re also getting an updated Sith Infiltrator in May 2024. This ship is including an all-new updated Darth Maul minifigure, so it does feel slightly watered down to get two different Darth Maul figures in the same year.

Regardless, I’m excited to get Darth Maul WITH PUPILS (for those who haven’t heard, the updated 2024 Maul from the upcoming Infiltrator set doesn’t have pupils for some bizarre reason).

If you want this classic version of Maul, better get your pre-orders in now for the book! The 160 page hardcover book launches April 2nd, 2024 for $24.99 (price at the time of writing this article).
