A Tusken Raider is a Star Wars minifigure introduced in 2002.

Description[edit]

The Tusken Raider Minifigure is composed of leg, torso and head pieces. The leg piece is tan and the dark gray colour used prior to the colour change in gray pieces, while the torso piece is predominantly tan with black and brown printing to represent the clothing commonly worn by Tusken Raiders in the films, and the hands are coloured dark gray. Like the rest of the figure, the head piece is mainly tan coloured, but has white, black, dark gray and brown printing to depict the masks worn by the Tuskens.

The Tusken Raider minifigures which appeared in the set 7113 Tusken Raider Encounter each had a black gun as an accessory.

Video Game variants[edit]

Tusken Raiders have appeared as enemies in all five released LEGO Star Wars video games on levels set on Tatooine. The video game model appears to be based off the physical Minifigure. "Tusken Raider" is a playable character in Free Play in LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, with their weapon being a gun. The Tusken Raider is also playable in the LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars as a minikit character; you have to acquire all ten minikits in the bonus level Hostage Crisis.

In LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Tusken Raider's abilities consist of the following:

  • Can accept scavenger missions
  • Can shoot LEGO targets

Background[edit]

Tusken Raiders, also known as Sand People, were a nomadic sentient species native to the planet of Tatooine. Tusken Raiders were often hostile to others who inhabited the planet. In the year 22 BBY, a clan of Tuskens captured Anakin Skywalker's mother, Shmi. Anakin went to Tatooine to rescue her from the Tuskens, arriving to see his mother one last time before she succumbed to her injuries. Anakin then proceeded to strike down the group of Tusken Raiders who captured Shmi. Many years later, his son, Luke Skywalker, encountered a Tusken Raider that attacked him. Obi-Wan Kenobi appeared and used a Jedi mind trick on the Raiders who were scavenging Luke's landspeeder. Thinking they were hearing a Krayt dragon, they quickly left.
