The wretched hive of scum and villainy’s most popular bar is getting a new LEGO Star Wars set, with 75205 Mos Eisley Cantina looking like a Toys R Us exclusive (which are usually shared with shop.LEGO.com). The Brick Fan spotted the listing on the Toys R Us website. This new set includes a booth, entrance and the bar along with a Ubrikkian 9000 pod.
Here is the official set description:
Recreate iconic Star Wars: A New Hope scenes at Tatooine’s most perilous tavern, Mos Eisley Cantina. This detailed model has a modular, open-out design for easy play. Slide the door and enter the bar to reveal the detailed interior, which includes a counter for serving refreshments and 2 seat-tipping functions for reenacting the unforgettable encounter between Han Solo and bounty hunter, Greedo. You also get a Ubrikkian 9000 pod with an opening minifigure cockpit and stud shooter on top. This LEGO Star Wars toy includes 4 minifigures.
As with previous LEGO versions of the Mos Eisley Cantina, the set looks a little sparse, but for those who own 75052 Mos Eisley Cantina, it provides an opportunity to enhance that version. Wuher finally makes his minifigure debut in this set, giving collectors a chance to own the grumpy bartender. The inclusion of the Ubrikkian 9000 pod is another amazing example of how deep the LEGO designers will delve into the source material – no Star Wars fan has ever requested this particular landspeeder for release, yet here it is.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on December 14 in the UK and December 15 in the USA. The LEGO sets based on the upcoming movie are available now.
