Why Everyone is Using LEGO Star Wars PFP (Profile Pictures)

Fanatic LEGO Star Wars fans have managed to take their fandom to the next level by creating and changing their social media profile pictures to a LEGO Star Wars PFP. As we know Star Wars is a big franchise with a huge following so it’s not hard to believe that LEGO Star Wars is one of the most popular LEGO Themes on the market which only fed this trend. If you want to learn more about LEGO Star Wars PFP and even find out how to set your profile picture as your favourite LEGO Star Wars Minifigure then you are in the right place.

How did LEGO Star Wars PFP begin?

The start of LEGO Star Wars PFP actually started way before the hype began. Go back to 2005 when LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game was released, if you played this game you would see that each playable character would have their own icon just like the ones below, the blue ring would change depending if you was player 1 or 2.

According to KnowYourMeme.com the trend started to make an appearance in 2018 after the Instagram page @starwars.wookie posted a collection of 132 LEGO Star Wars PFP saying “Join the LEGO Star Wars Movement 😂. Change ur pfp.”. After this it was noticed on multiple social media platforms like Reddit, Twitter and Instagram people were starting to change their profile pictures to one of these 132 LEGO Star Wars icons, although at this point it wasn’t a popular trend, this came soon after.

Late 2019, early 2020 it started trending on TikTok, this was encouraged by accounts such as @starwars.wookie and @legostarwars_army by making it really easy for people to get whatever LEGO Star Wars PFP they wanted.

On January 3rd 2020 the LEGO Star Wars PFP trend started to get interest from the media where The New York Times journalist Taylor Lorenz tweeted saying what people were doing.

Soon after this on January 10th 2020 it was reported that the #LSW hashtag (stands for LEGO Star Wars if you didn’t know) had over 958 million views, on top of this the #LEGOStarWars hashtag was sitting at 384 million views. So just with these two hash tags LEGO Star Wars was sitting at a more than 1.3 billion views!

Right now the two hashtags are still as popular as ever with over 4.5 billion views, I think its safe to say if you are a TikTok user and like LEGO Star Wars you will enjoy looking through the content on these two hashtags.

Other than the media hyping the trend it’s also believed that the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker movie being released around the same time (20th December, 2019) the trend started kicking off gave Star Wars fans that added reason to change their social media profiles.

How do people use LEGO Star Wars PFP?

Typically it was found that Star Wars fans used LEGO Star Wars profile pictures on their social media accounts, the main platforms are TikTok, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

With over 132 made available by Instagram accounts such as @legostarwars_army Star Wars fans could either pick their favourite character and stick with it or change their profile when they fancied something different.

It wasn’t just fans who did it either, either well known businesses were doing it. The Washington Post as an example changed their profile picture to Jar Jar Binks!

What is LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga?

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a combination of the very popular video games… LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game and its sequel LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy.

This game was initially released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Nintendo DS on 6th November 2007 and on 13th October in 2009 they released a PC version.

To show how popular this game really was they made it backwards compatible from the Xbox 360 to Xbox One in 2013 and within the same year they had also released a version for the iPhone, soon after in 2016 it was finally available on the Play Store for Android devices.

Even though this game is 15 years old it is still popular amongst LEGO Star Wars fans, with an age rating of 10+ the audience is huge so expect to hear about this game for a little while longer.

How can you create your own LEGO Star Wars PFP?

One of the easiest ways to get your own LEGO Star Wars PFP is to use ones that others have made publicly available, an example of this is the Instagram account @legostarwars_army where they have 99 different LEGO Star Wars PFP images available to download.

Another great source for LEGO Star Wars PFP is the KnowYourMeme.com website, they have 126 different LEGO Star Wars PFP available to download and upload to your social media profile.

If you wanted to design your own this is also possible, you will need a template which you can download below. Once you have this you can use a website such as Canva.com to upload your template and then simply put in the LEGO Star Wars character you want to use.

Written by Matthew Mitchell
Hey, I am Matthew Mitchell and I am an AFOL from the UK. I have been fascinated by LEGO since I was a child. My two children are in love with LEGO and it's because of them that my interest in LEGO continued to grow, this is how I fell in to the rabbit hole of LEGO MOCs. With every new LEGO MOC I saw I became just a bit more addicted to the endless possibilities that LEGO offers. This led me to creating Belle-Ve Bricks, a platform where talented LEGO designers can share their work with the world.
