You will have to save the princess at least two times because you can’t get all the Minikits in the first run of the mission. The second playthrough must be in the Free Play mode.
TT Games’ developers have complicated things in this mission, but only if you want to get all the collectibles. The main story is a walk in the park.
I’m pretty sure you will need my help this time, so I will provide step-by-step instructions on how to obtain all five Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga Best Leia’d Plans Minikits.
Minikit #1: Under The Balcony With The Destructible Covers
For the first collectible, you will have to start the mission in Free Play and progress normally through it to the part where you have to use a Scoundrel to take down a barrier.
Once you take the barrier down, switch to a Hero character and find the balcony with a grapple point above it like in the following image.
Now grapple up to the next floor. By the way, you should kill all the stormtroopers standing in your way so you can look around peacefully.
On this floor, you should find a little brick with tires. It looks like a small car, as you can see in the next screenshot.
You will have to destroy the car and two others for the Best Leia’d Plans Minikit #3. I will tell you where to find the other two as well.
You should now use the turbolift from nearby to get to a new floor.
Here you have to proceed forward until you find a ladder you have to climb.
You will see a stormtrooper blocking a door by taking away the battery from its socket. You will come back to deal with this later.
Clear the area of enemies, and in the process, you will find another one of those mini cars, so destroy it (you only need one more for Minikit #3).
Now go on the floor’s west side, to the balcony with the destructible covers.
Position yourself so you can jump down to another balcony under you. Use the double jump if you need to (make the leap of faith, it’s not that hard).
If you survived the jump, you would be able to get the first Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga Best Leia’d Plans Minikit. If not, have another go at it.
Minikit #2: Behind The Door On The Floor’s West Side
To obtain the second Minikit, you must first return to the balcony where you made the leap of faith.
This time you will have to select a Scoundrel character and aim your weapon above another balcony on the right to destroy the door blocking access to it.
You can now go to the newly opened balcony and pull the lever there to tighten the rope leading to yet another balcony opposing this one.
Is it just me, or are there too many balconies?
Anyway, you will now be able to jump on the rope and grab the keycard from the other side.
Open this balcony’s door by pushing the button near it, and you will see another door that you can open with the keycard.
Doing so will reveal the battery you can use to open the door that the stormtrooper locked, remember?
So take the battery back to its socket on the floor’s west side.
You will never guess what’s behind the newly opened door.
Yes! Best Leia’d Plans Minikit #2. How did you know?
Minikit #3: Destroy The Three Mini Cars
Now you should go to the south side of the same floor from where you got Minikit #2.
Here you will find a wall that you can pull and use as a bridge, precisely above the ladder you used to climb to this floor.
Enter the secret room after the short cutscene, and you will find the last mini car rolling around.
Destroy it to reveal Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga Best Leia’d Plans Minikit #3.
Minikit #4: In The Secret Room
You can also find the fourth Minikit in the secret room.
First, break all the boxes in the room, and with the remaining pieces, build Best Leia’d Plans Minikit #4.
Minikit #5: Behind The Door On The Left
Now find the turbolift on the same level as Minikit #4 and go to the next floor.
Defeat the enemies before you and turn back to the turbolift, where you can see another room (opposite the barrier).
Head there, turn to the left, and open the door to collect Best Leia’d Plans Minikit #5.
There you go, you have obtained all five Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga Best Leia’d Plans Minikits.
