LEGO Star Was Mos Eisley Cantina Coming Soon!

Star Wars fans, film lovers, and builders rejoice! The LEGO Group will soon release the large and highly detailed #75290 LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina from Star Wars: A New Hope. The set will be available for LEGO VIP members starting on September 16th at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop (wider release will be on October 1st). Below is the press-release with all the currently available info.

Coming from a galaxy far, far away and into to the homes of LEGO enthusiasts and Star Wars fans across the world – the LEGO Group’s new LEGO Star Wars building set, the Mos Eisley Cantina, will dazzle adult builders and film fans alike. Bringing to life one of the Skywalker saga’s most iconic locations, the new set is sure to become an instant classic as rebels immerse themselves in the famous cantina’s world of smugglers, musicians, bounty hunters, and Jedi knights.

The impressive building kit gives adult LEGO fans the chance to relax and enjoy a mindful building experience as they reconnect with their passion for the original trilogy. Intrepid builders can even open up the set’s removable roof to admire its intricate details and act out their favorite Star Wars: A New Hope scenes, using iconic character mini-figures including Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and C-3PO. Additionally, the set features eight character minifigures that have been introduced in LEGO form for the first time, including Ponda Baba, Dr. Evazan, Garindan, and more.

As they embark on their journey to bring Mos Eisley’s quintessential taverna to life, films lovers and Star Wars devotees will be thrilled to discover the set’s special features, such as the attachable buildings, two Landspeeders – one of which has never been built in LEGO before – and a dewback LEGO figure. The LEGO Star Wars: A New Hope Mos Eisley Cantina is also dotted with hidden details throughout, such a “Wanted” poster featuring R2D2 and C-3PO, to the kiber crystals hidden in one of the exterior buildings.

Once built, the 3,187-piece LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina construction set makes for an extraordinary display piece, standing at over 7.5” (19cm) high, 20.5” (52cm) wide and 23” (58cm) deep when opened.

Part of the Master Builder series, this new Star Wars building kit is the latest example of how the LEGO Group aims to inspire builders to build, rebuild, and get excited by the process of creation. Speaking about the creative process behind the new building kit, set designer Cesar Soares said:

“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 became a LEGO Star Wars designer in 2016, this was the first set I built. 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 back stories, 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.”

There is a huge variety of LEGO Star Wars building sets available to delight fans including the LEGO Star Wars Luke’s Landspeeder helping you reimagine your favorite Star Wars A New Hope scenes, create your own epic stories, or just build and display the awesome models, such as the TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet and A-Wing Starfighter. This set is perfect for those looking for a new building challenge – making it ideal for ages 18+ to enjoy solo or with friends and family.

This is not the first time LEGO tackled the Mos Eisley Cantina. We got the #4501 LEGO Star Was Mos Eisley Cantina in 2004, the #75052 LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina in 2014, the #75205 LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina in 2018, but all of these sets were only snippets of the location. The #75290 LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina comes with 3,187 pieces and give us the entire enclosed building with a full interior, plus 21 minifigs (several of them new), vehicles, and a dewback! There is a lot to like here, and I’m sure that this set will be popular with both young and old LEGO fans.

As I mentioned at the beginning the #75290 LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina will be available for LEGO VIP members on September 16th, and globally on October 1st. Prices are as follows: £319.99, €349.99, $349.99. For further details and to purchase the set, visit the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

    That looks incredible!

  • Sith015 September 9, 2020, 11:55 AM

    Finally, an amazing Star Wars sets that’s not a ship or the Death Star! I love this so much!

    “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.”

    I would love to own this set!

  • Okosh September 9, 2020, 12:02 PM

    Man, Lego is churning out these huge sets like there is no tomorrow! It does look good though. Tempting. Very tempting.

  • Undercover Afol September 9, 2020, 12:20 PM

    Okay, Lego is going to have to stop with all these awesome sets! This is so much better than the Hoth set they released a few years ago. I love the architecture! It could even double as a building for ancient Egypt or something.

  • yoladiel September 9, 2020, 12:31 PM

    I like how it opens up for play, but you can make it look like a full building when closing it up. What’s the extra building that comes with the set? The press release doesn’t seem to talk about it.

    • MagickChicken September 9, 2020, 7:11 PM

      I’m guessing it’s the building the droids hide in.

  • Peter September 9, 2020, 12:45 PM

    Does Lego accept republic credits? Because that’s the only way I can pay for this. They really captured the atmosphere of the place. I especially love the bar!

  • Legostuff14 September 9, 2020, 2:53 PM

    Wow! This is awesome looking. So, do they have a liquor license? Lol! I’ve been waiting for this set for awhile now. In my waiting, I managed to use the older MOS Eisley sets and made my own Cantina. It is obviously not quite the same because I didn’t have all the parts, but, I managed to make a Cantina but it doesn’t have to be in MOS Eisley. As for the creatures I used Space Police aliens. I even have an office for my bartender and a storage unit for the containers of liquor. Now if only Lego can make a moisture Farm and a bantha( in full scale to the minifigures). And yes, I did make a moisture farm too.😁

  • T.T.T. September 9, 2020, 5:05 PM

    Finally a proper cantina! It’s the right size, right density, right number of minifigs, and the extras are good too. The only thing I don’t like is the price. Not that it’s not worth it, but forking over that much money at once for plastic bricks is going to be hard to justify.

  • Legostuff14 September 9, 2020, 5:18 PM

    As the Rolling Stones song goes”you can’t always get what you want, you can’t always get what you want but, can get what you need.” ( I know I missed a line. But, you get the point). To some degree, it looks like Lego took all the old Mos Eisley Cantina sets and put it all together to make one big set. The mini figures are the draw for me.

  • Legostuff14 September 9, 2020, 5:39 PM

    No, I’m wrong. It’s a lot better than sets being thrown together to make a set. Definitely on my radar to get.

  • Håkan September 9, 2020, 7:11 PM

    Hmm, I’d like to buy those alien minifigs, myself, although I guess they’ll be quite costly on the aftermarket…

  • Legostuff14 September 9, 2020, 7:12 PM

    It’s just this set and the Diagon Alley set are both very expensive and I really can’t afford it. That’s why I take the time to make things myself. So, will see what Christmas brings this year.

  • Melanie September 10, 2020, 11:28 AM

    The Cantina is amazing. But the minifigures are extraordinary! I thought I wanted Diagon Alley, well I do, but I think I want this one more! Lego is making it really hard to choose which of the bigger sets will end up on my shelves.

  • Håkan September 11, 2020, 5:00 PM

    Hmm, looking at the promo pictures, I realize that besides my current need to pinch money, time and space, that picture looks more like an Ikea showroom than the nerdy clutterdump I live in. I’m mostly just interested in the heads for alien figbarfs, anyway…

    • Thita (admin) September 11, 2020, 5:07 PM

      Are you saying that the Cantina doesn’t fit your current home décor? 😀

      • Håkan September 12, 2020, 5:21 PM

        I’m just saying that I already live in a cantina, and don’t need to build one, to boot… @_@
