The Force is strong with this one! Episode VII has finally arrived in LEGO version! Play as your favorite characters from the episode a wide range from Jedi, Stormtroopers, Sith and many more. Explore worlds such as the desert planet Jakku, the ice planet of Starkiller Base and the lush jungle world Takodana in 18 new story levels, six of them with brand new stories leading up to the events in The Force Awakens.
This game introduces new gameplay mechanics, including the enhanced Multi-Builds system, where players can choose from multiple building options to advance the game, or engage in intense new Blaster Battles for the first time, utilizing surrounding environments to drive back the First Order. Plus, you can now command a group of allies, whether it’s to aid you in grappling multiple LEGO plugs or with pushing large items that you can't do alone.
All LEGO games follow the same formula; play through the story then replay the levels in Free Play to get 100% in them. After that is complete, then you tackle the HUBs one at a time. Utilizing this method of gameplay will maximize your time and you will complete the game in no time.
Step 1: Story Mode
There are 12 The Force Awakens and 6 Adventure story levels to play through, each taking approximately 20-30 minutes. There are collectibles in each level, so if you have the opportunity to pick them up, then do so. Note that you won’t be able to pick everything up in the level during Story Mode; certain characters are needed to perform tasks or access areas that are otherwise not available in your first playthrough. This step will take approximately 8-10 hours.
When you’ve completed a level in Story Mode, that level opens up in Free Play, but don’t worry about that yet.
Step 1.5: Stud Farming
After you complete the 12 The Force Awakens story chapters, you fully unlock all five HUBs. There is a way to collect a lot of studs easily. When you select the Millennium Falcon HUB, there is a menu option to play a game called ‘Dejarik Battle’. It’s the holochess game that R2-D2 and Chewbacca are playing in A New Hope. The game consists of surviving six waves of enemies, and after each wave, you can collect tens of thousands of studs. Without any stud multipliers, you can net you up to 300,000 studs or more. Use this method to collect enough studs to purchase both the x2 and x4 Stud Multiplier Red Bricks, which are both found while playing Story Mode (Chapter 4 and Chapter 8 respectively). You’ll have millions of studs in no time!
Purchasing and activating the ‘Stud Magnet’ Red Brick (for 200,000 studs) is a big help as well.
Step 2: Free Play (Levels)
It is recommended that you complete all 18 story levels first before going back and playing the levels again in Free Play. There are some characters that are unlocked later on in the game that are needed for collecting Red Bricks and minikits. It is also recommended that you purchase the ‘Collectible Detector’ Red Brick for 500,000 studs.
Each level contains three Gold Bricks: completing the level, obtaining ‘True Jedi’ and collecting all 10 minikits. There is also a Red Brick in each level. All are required for the 100% achievement. It should take about the same time playing Free Play as it did playing through the story. So you don’t have to backtrack, it is recommended that you play through each level in order and complete them 100% before playing the next.
Note on ‘True Jedi’; this can be obtained in each level if you’ve found, purchased and activated the x2 and x4 Stud Multiplier Red Bricks, both in Story Mode. The x2 Stud Multiplier is found in Chapter 4, ‘The Eravana’ and is available for 1,000,000 studs and the x4 Stud Multiplier is found in Chapter 8, ‘Starkiller Sabotage’ and is available for 2,000,000 studs.
Red Brick Guide
Step 3: Free Play (Hubs)
Now that you’ve fully completed everything in all 18 story levels, it’s time to tackle the HUBs. Each of the five HUBs contains a variety of missions and tasks, whether it is completing First Order or Scavenger missions, races or solving puzzles to collect Gold Bricks. They can be explored fully after you’ve completed the 12 The Force Awakens story levels. Note that some missions do not appear until previous ones have been completed.
This can be done however you like; complete one HUB at a time or mix it up and do like tasks together (complete all First Order missions, retrieve all the carbonite blocks, etc.). To maximize your time, it is recommended that you complete one HUB fully before moving on to the next one, but it’s entirely up to you.
Here is a list of each HUB and how many Gold Bricks each has:
- D’Qar: 42
- Jakku: 54
- Millennium Falcon: 8
- Starkiller Base: 55
- Takodana: 35
Step 4: Mop-Up & 100%
Now that both the levels and HUBs are completed, there might still be a couple of things needed to get 100%. Make sure you create a character for the “Cryptosurgeon” achievement as it counts toward the percentage.
Double check to make sure you have all the vehicles with the exception of two (they are unlocked when you complete the final bonus mission).
Also go through the character grid and check to see if you’ve purchased all of the characters. All of them should at least be unlocked at this point (unlocked by completing levels and retrieving carbonite blocks). With some characters having multiple outfits in the same slot, it may be difficult to confirm if you’ve purchased everyone.
Once you’ve collected 249 Gold Bricks and have confirmed that you’ve done everything else, there is one final bonus mission to complete for the last Gold Brick and 100%. It is ‘Starkiller Destruction’ and located on the galaxy map by choosing the Starkiller Base HUB. It is a classic LEGO game bonus level where you have to collect 1,000,000 studs to complete. Once you have completed it, the “Force Is Strong With This One” achievement will unlock.

After the mayhem on Kylo Ren's Star Destroyer, as Finn and Poe successfully escape the ship, they take a turn for the worst when they crash on Jakku. Getting lost, Finn wakes up and travels to discover the Niima Outpost. Thirsty and desperate for any kind of water source. Poe is discovered by a Blarina named Naka Iit, and Poe, like Finn, is desperate for water. Help him defeat the Strus Clan and reclaim Naka Iit's home in Blowback Town.
