Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga had the UK’s biggest Lego launch ever

Well, it seems that folks overseas sure like lightsabers and cutesy gags, as Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is off to an incredibly successful retail launch in the UK.

On Monday, reported that Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga outsold every prior series entry in the UK at launch, even toppling 2008’s Lego Indiana Jones by 8.4 percent. It’s also the second highest-selling game in the region thus far, only behind Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Not even smash hits like Horizon Forbidden West or Elden Ring could surpass Lego’s latest.

The report also states that Lego is the fifth-biggest game series by box sales, ahead of Assassin’s Creed, Sonic the Hedgehog, and even other Star Wars titles like Jedi Fallen Order.

However, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga isn’t the all-time bestselling entry within the UK yet. In a statement to, GfK games boss Dorian Bloch claims there’s still a ways to go before Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga can claim the Lego throne.

“The current all-time unit sales No.1 is Lego Marvel Super Heroes, followed at No.2 by Lego Batman and at No.3 by Lego Indiana Jones,” Bloch said. “Then it’s two Star Wars titles: Lego Star Wars 2: Original Trilogy at No.4 and No.5 is Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga.”

Anyone still on the fence about Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga should check out GLHF’s review.
