As you know, we love Star Wars here at Geek’s Oasis and today we are looking for the best Death Star puzzle. We already looked at the best Darth Vader jigsaw puzzles and now it is time for the most destructive force the galaxy has ever seen!

Anyone that loves Star Wars will no doubt have fond memories of the Death Star. No matter if it is seeing it for the first time in a New Hope, blowing it up in a video game or even playing with the Kenner playset that was released back in the day!

The Death Star is one of the most iconic images of any sci-fi movie and we will force-choke anyone that disagrees!

Stealing The Plans To Make This List

You would not believe the trouble we had putting this Death Star puzzle list together. First, we had to crash-land on Scarif and infiltrate an Imperial Base just to try and find out what the best Death Star puzzles were!

We lost a few good members of the Geek’s Oasis team taking on this dangerous mission. If only someone had told us about this thing called an internet search engine! The good news is, we have found the best Death Star-themed puzzles to save you from going through the trouble that we did!

While putting together this puzzle is a challenging, but fun time. Once you are done, you can have even more fun as you try to spot all of the characters that are hanging around this very active Death Star. The perfect gift for any Star Wars fan!

The next Death Star puzzle we are looking at is a very cool 3D-style puzzle! With this one, you have to put the plastic shapes in the right place so that when you are done, you have a very cool 3D model of the Death Star that you can display.

While 60 pieces may not sound like much, this puzzle is way trickier to put together than you would think! It comes with a little base too so that it will not roll over and accidentally blast a nearby planet, sparking a rebellion as it does!

In all seriousness, once complete, this will make for an epic display piece!

The Rebels and The Empire are fighting it out in space, just outside of The Death Star as it looms in the background looking all sinister! We love how this captures the whole “space opera” thing of Star Wars!

Ok, so we know that this is a real wild card entry on this list, but hear us out! While this is not a puzzle you put together, it is still technically a puzzle, only the challenge here is getting the ball to the middle of the Death Star so that you can blow it up.

Do not worry, this is not going to blow up if you reach the middle. However, do not be shocked if Admiral Ackbar shows up and tries to recruit you for a dangerous mission to blow up the real Death Star. This is way more challenging than you would think and a fun way to relax and get your mind working too!

This is a very challenging set to put together, but what is neat about this is that it is not just a regular set, this is a diorama of the Death Star trench run scene in A New Hope!

It has Darth Vader’s X-Wing and two others chasing down Luke Skywalker as he tries to blow up the Death Star! This will be fun to put together, but it will also be something you are very proud to have in your collection.

We know that putting this on our Death Star puzzle list is a bit of a stretch, but we feel that as the Death Star is looming in the background, it was ok to include it. Plus, this is the iconic Star Wars A New Hope movie poster that we all know and love so all Star Wars fans will love putting this together.

This Buffalo Games jigsaw puzzle is great if you are more Jar-Jar Binks than Qui-Gon Jin when it comes to jigsaw puzzles. It is only 300 pieces and they are larger pieces too, this is fun and will get your mind working, but it will not frustrate you to the point of joining the dark side!

Here we have a fun one for you guys. This is a more modest LEGO set, coming in at 159 pieces, but as it captures one of the most memorable scenes to happen on The Death Star we wanted to include it.

Who can forget Obi-Wan sneaking around to disable the tractor beam? With this set, you can recreate that scene and also have a little LEGO Death Star Gunner manning the cannon!

This may be a simple set, but it is fun to build, will look great in your collection, and is very affordable too!

Here we have another Death Star puzzle that is more than just the Death Star! This has the Death Star in the background, but we also have the main cast from the original Star Wars Trilogy.

We love the cartoon style of this image and it is designed to look like the epic Data East Star Wars Pinball Machine from the early 90s as it has the same style of artwork.

Coming in at 400 pieces, this will pose a challenge, but it is more a Luke using the training droid style of a challenge than the challenge of a full-on AT-ST assault!

Good To Know

  • Size: 24 x 18 inches
  • Recommended Age: 8 years and up

This thing is just insane with a ton of detail and you will love making each individual room and seeing it all come together. You will feel just like The Emperor did as he oversaw the Death Star being complete.

Make no mistake, this is one heck of a difficult set to put together, but you are going to have an epic time and it is the kind of project that you will never forget. Plus, any Star Wars collection with a LEGO Death Star in it is extra special!

FAQs About Death Star Puzzles

If you need to steal the plans for the Empire's space station we are sorry to say that we are out of the rebellion game so we cannot help. However, we can help you make it so it is as easy as possible to complete your Death Star jigsaw puzzle!

Can I frame my Death Star puzzle?

We have done a whole guide on awesome puzzle frames and we feel that the Death Star puzzles we have looked at today (well the jigsaw puzzle ones) would look epic in a frame.

They would look perfect in a game or toy room or even right in the center of the living room if you are a Star Wars-loving household!

How hard is it to put together a jigsaw puzzle?

To be honest, it all depends on how many pieces there are. If you are new to jigsaw puzzles, you may want to start around the 500-piece range. However, if you are a seasoned jigsaw puzzle Jedi, you may want to go 1000, 2000, or even 3000 pieces!

We have looked at the best jigsaw puzzle tables and jigsaw puzzle accessories which can make putting together your Death Star jigsaw puzzle easier than ordering a drink at the Tatooine cantine!

Wait, The Tractor Beam Is Engaged

Ha, before you escape into the Millennium Falcon, you will have to disengage the tractor beam we have. However, while you are waiting, we would like to say that we have had a great deal of fun looking for the best Death Star puzzle with you fellow Star Wars fans today.
