LEGO Star Wars has released a new set from Order 66, featuring Jedi Master Kelleran Beq and his rescue of Grogu from the besieged Jedi Temple. As seen in The Mandalorian season 3, more of Grogu’s history was revealed, and how he was able to avoid the Jedi Purge thanks to Master Beq. Pursued by the 501st Legion, this action-packed chase with Kelleran and Grogu has now been recreated using classic LEGO bricks.


Celebrating LEGO Star Wars‘ 25th anniversary, multiple new models have been released in 2024 to commemorate the special occasion. This includes the new BARC Speeder Escape (75378) which was released on May 1st. Having got our hands on a copy, here’s Screen Rant’s official review of BARC Speeder Escape (75378), and a close look at the exciting new Kelleran Beq minifigure.

Priced at $30 with a piece count of just over 200 pieces, BARC Speeder Escape also features 4 exciting minifigures. This notably includes Jedi Master Kelleran Beq who was played by Ahmed Best in The Mandalorian season 3 (the actor who also played Jar Jar Binks in The Phantom Menace). The full set comes in 3 bags with a limited number of stickers (which is always welcome).

The box art for BARC Speeder Escape is quite fitting as well. Forced to flee the Jedi Temple as it was under attack by Darth Vader and the 501st Legion, Master Beq takes down several clone troopers during the Jedi Purge flashback from The Mandalorian season 3. Kelleran and Grogu then race through the city skyline of Coruscant to the Naboo cruiser waiting to take them off-world.

Build Breakdown For BARC Speeder Escape (75378)

Fleeing The Jedi Temple And Order 66


Featuring a new design for a Republic BARC Speeder, the classic prequel vehicle also comes with the sidecar young Grogu sits in during the Order 66 flashback. There’s also a new pram for Grogu that can be taken on and off the speeder, as well as a clear base piece to pose the child independently of the BARC Speeder. The Star Wars build also comes with a Coruscant lampstand fixture that could potentially be used to pose the speeder in mid-flight using some minimal modifications.

At a leisurely building pace, it takes just under 30 minutes to fully build LEGO’s BARC Speeder Escape (75378). As such, it’s a great model for younger builders. It’s also worth noting that BARC Speeder Escape is a great companion piece with LEGO’s Coruscant Guard Gunship (75354) which was released in 2023, the very same gunship that pursued Kelleran and Grogu in The Mandalorian season 3.

Also Grogu and Two 501st Minifigures

The true draw of LEGO Star Wars’ new BARC Speeder Escape set is undoubtedly Jedi Master Kelleran Beq. The attention to detail is quite exciting, including the unique gold trim on his Jedi robes. Featuring a classic brown Jedi cloth cape, the Kelleran minifigure also comes with his dual green and blue lightsaber which he effectively used to take down several clone troopers, two of which come included in the model to help expand LEGO collectors’ 501st Legions.

BARC Speeder Escape (75378) also comes with a minifigure of Grogu as well. While the child has been featured in multiple LEGO sets at this point since his debut in 2019 with the first season of The Mandalorian, the white and red pram is exciting and matches the overall color scheme of the build overall. As such, the entire LEGO model certainly is a solid addition to any Star Wars collection, especially for Mandalorian and prequel trilogy fans.
