This guide will show you where to find all LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Episode 4: A New Hope minikit locations. Minikits can be challenging to locate since some of them can be hidden really well in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. They are worth it to find though as collecting all five in each level rewards you with a ship to use in free play mode.
If you’re having trouble finding a specific minikit, you can always buy a “Rumor” through your holoprojector. Rumors each cost 30,000 studs but the price can be lowered with the right upgrades.
But this guide will show you where to find every minikit so you don’t have to go through the hassle of looking for each one. There are a grand total of 25 minikits in Episode IV: A New Hope.
An Acrobatic Mission minikit
In a room separated by a glass where you can see Darth Vader walking on the other side, there is a door that can be opened by a Force-sensitive character. You’ll have to jump down the hole and get past the lightning traps to get to this minikit at the end of the hallway.
Rumor: “Show off your acrobatic abilities for a special reward!”
Storage Wars minikit
After you’ve used the hologram platform to open a door, there will be Stormtroopers who will break through on the door to the left. Inside that door, you’ll find four buttons which you’ll have to press simultaneously in order to acquire the minikit. Use a Force-sensitive character to bring objects to press the other two buttons and use your two characters to press the other two. This will give you this minikit.
