Not only does 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina offer the most complete LEGO version of Chalmun’s Cantina to date, it includes a massive 20 minifigures, with some of the more obscure characters from the bar finally getting their LEGO moment.
While it is best known from the bustling sequence in A New Hope, which culminates with Han Solo shooting Greedo, the cantina appeared in the first season of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, illustrating how life had changed on Tatooine in the intervening years.
“The first time I watched the Cantina scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, I was just 12 years old. I remember thinking, ‘this is where the adventure starts!’ Years later, when I then became a LEGO Star Wars designer in 2016, this was the first set I built,” said LEGO Model Designer Cesar Soares when the set was announced. “With this design, we’ve added external buildings like the Jawa shop, refined the details, and chosen an impressive 21 minifigure characters, including all-new alien figures.”
