This guide will show you where to find all LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga Episode 1: The Phantom Menace minikit locations. Minikits can be challenging to locate since some of them can be hidden really well. They are worth finding though as collecting all five in each level rewards you with a ship to use in free play mode.
If you are having trouble looking for the minikits, the game also provides a “Rumor” for each of them, which gives players a hint as to where to find them. The base price of each rumor minikit is 30,000 studs, although players can reduce this price by a specific proportion by purchasing upgrades.
But in this guide, we already laid out where to find every minikit so you don’t have to go through the hassle of looking for each one. There are a total of 25 minikits that can be unlocked in Episode I: The Phantom Menace:
