You may struggle to find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy, but Mos Eisley is one of the best-loved locations in the whole Star Wars franchise and its iconic cantina is the port’s most famous landmark.
LEGO has released some impressive Star Wars themed sets in the past, but this has to be among our favourites. Not only is it insanely detailed, but it also comes positively crammed full of minifigures - which is always something we look for when it comes to premium LEGO kits.
This set is due for release to us regular folk on October 1st, but LEGO VIPs get priority access and can purchase the kit right now!

Who shot first?
Who shot first? It’s the question that has divided the Star Wars fanbase for decades….
Okay, we all know Han shot first, but the LEGO Mos Eisley Cantina let you recreate this iconic scene and many others.
From dark dealing at the intricately recreated bar or haggling with Jawa’s at the shopfront, this set brings the spaceport to life in the way that only LEGO can.
The set also contains several special features, including attachable buildings, two landspeeders (one of which is a new build of the V-35) and a rideable dewback in LEGO form.
Mos Eisley is always crammed full of rouges, criminals and alien creatures, and the cantina is where they all meet to do business and usually double-cross each other!
The LEGO Group haven't been stingy with the minifigure count here as the Mos Eisley Cantina set comes with 20 minifigures (as well as R2-D2).
You’ve got all the expected characters such as Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo and Chewbacca, but also seven brand-new figures you won’t find in any other set - three of which feature unique moulded elements.
Master Builders only
As part of the Master Builder Series, this 3187-piece kit isn’t for the little ones.
It’s a challenging, but extremely rewarding, build designed for Star Wars fanatics and LEGO collectors alike. Once constructed the kit can be displayed as a closed set or can be opened up for play.
