Adventure on Tatooine…where it all began!

When he drove the old hermit Ben Kenobi into Mos Eisley spaceport, young farm boy Luke Skywalker had no idea that he would end up becoming a Jedi Knight and saving the galaxy. Recreate the moment the adventure began with this special-edition set, featuring an all-new landspeeder vehicle with a secret lightsaber compartment, a cast of droids and heroes, and a sandtrooper guard with a security droid. Are these the droids he’s looking for?

And the Rebel Alliance, we have Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3PO, and R2-D2.

Luke has printed legs, and TLG should have done the same for the Sandtrooper too. R2's dome is in grey instead of white, and the paintwork done on it, makes it more accurate this time round.

Here's the X-34 Landspeeder,

Compared to the earlier release, this newly design speeder certainly features unique detailing that's found on the actual prop.

Thoughtful this is, where TLG has included a storage compartment.

These aren't the droids that you are looking for...

All in all, if you've missed out on the previous release, this is a worthwhile set to get. Since it does come with a trooper, and a sentry droid to boot.

Now, all TLG needs is to release a re-designed cantina with more aliens... :wink:

Thanks for reading.

Nice review...

The storage compartment takes me back to the early sets, where that wort of gimmick was in almost every set. :)

Too bad an "Exclusive!" stamp jack up the price by at least $15...

But that's another story, thanks for the review and I cannot wait until this comes out here. (Maybe it has?)

Nice review, now if I can only find this set, it's always sold out.

Your pictures are nice.

Good review but I found the green background a little distracting at times :sceptic:

This set is number 1 on my "to get list". There are so many great figs such as Obi-Wan and Luke, but I'm a little disappointed that they changed Luke's head, he looks really "<insert that tiresome argument>", same goes for Obi-Wan, too sad looking in my opinion.

The thing that I like most is that they included C-3PO. The last "cheap" set that he was featured in was 7106 Droid Escape.

i own both the original 1999 release and the sand red version from Mos Eisley cantina so i dont need another just for the 3po fig. the new sandtrooper does not interest me either, the one on dewback was far more interesting. besides, i am not into those flesh minifigs.

I think one of the main appeals of this set is the large number of minifigs for such a small (class wise) set.
