Of all the memorable scenes and exotic locations in the Star Wars film series, it is the Mos Eisley Cantina that stands out the most, thanks to its colourful cast of alien denizens. LEGO 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina is the biggest, most complete rendition in the brick so far, with a whopping 3,187 pieces making up the newly announced set.
The set measures 19cm high, 52cm wide and 58cm deep when constructed. It is priced at £319.99 in the UK, €349.99 in Germany and $349.99 in the USA.
“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,” says LEGO Model Designer Cesar Soares. “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. I love that all Star Wars characters have cool backstories, no matter how briefly they appear. It wasn’t easy to decide which characters to include in the set, but we hope fans will love the entire model and its line-up of heroes and villains.”
