Prompted by this comment from @CreationEdge...

LEGO doesn't kill characters, it's against their internal corporate guidelines for media depictions (I've read them) . They can be destroyed (bricks separated), but it's not a permanent death. At least not on screen.

Are there any instances where a character is unambiguously killed on-screen in a Lego Star Wars property?

From a certain point of view, Lego characters die in Lego Star Wars, actually the same that die in the movies.

For instance, here is a video of the last level of Episode I in Lego Star Wars video game. Qui-Gon Jinn is killed by Darth Maul (at 10:00 in the video) and then dies at the end (at 10:35). For me it looks pretty obvious.

    There is also Padmé's death at the end of Episode III, with the same type of death as Qui-Gon ("X"" on the eyes). – ShadowMitia Jul 6 '16 at 12:36

    In fairness he makes cameos in future episodes of the game, but only as a force ghost. Padmé doesn't. – Valorum Jul 6 '16 at 14:06

    Eyes turn to double X's = death in my book. – Kevin Jul 7 '16 at 3:43
  • I can actually see how these cases fit within their guidelines, and I'm sure there's some exceptions for retelling the licensed story. But yeah, as you say, from a certain point of view. Then again, did LEGO kill them or did George Lucas? – user31178 Jan 2 '17 at 5:33

Also, in the new "Force Awakens" game the fate of Han Solo is the same as in the movie. We only see him falling down the chute, though - so it's not unambiguous as such.
