    [REVIEW] 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina

    I ordered mine this morning, atlantic eastern time, and it's already out of stock tonight!
  2. Shoutout to lego to bump the price 50$ CAN more than the UCS cloud city set while the pricing remains the same for the US and EU. 450$ smh
  3. Late 2020 is great, early was meh aside from the Mando BP and I also liked Obi Wan's home. I had a nice look at the higher res images; Garindan is spot on! Definitly one of the highlight of the minifigs line-up with Evazan and Ponda Baba.
  4. I own the 2014 cantina, this is not just ''3 times this set''. The 2014 has a 2x 6 studs depht alcoves with no roofs, a very small bar counter and only the entrance has a roof. Dewback plus landspeeder and a mini fig lineup that was great but missing A LOT of stuff. You can't ever moc something out of it that looks remotly good as the new set and people tried HARD with multiple sets. This one has 6x 12 studs wide alcoves with floor included, roofing, the complete bar, exit and entrance, the alley market, new speeder and plenty of interesting local fauna. It's gonna be really nice on display too! My only criticism is that I would have liked to see even more aliens and maybe another sandtrooper with the enlistee rank (black pauldron, but the depicted accuratly the two present inspecting the bar)! Muftak (big 4 eyed Talz alien with the white fur) and maybe even the removed werewolf guy.
  5. Honestly the main cast had to be included; Lego could have been snarky and reject both droids because they are not allowed in; and to be fair at the rate lego is pumping R2-D2 into sets no one would have complainned to see another alien or droid in his place and 3PO is in the landspeeder set already available. I'm 100% getting this day one and it's coming from someone jaded since a couple years of this theme especially after a lot of dissapointing sets ( Betrayal at Bespin and Assault on Hoth omg ) Now it's Razorcrest, AT-AT, duel at Bespin and this Mos Esley set; this is a breath of fresh air after the forgetable sequel trilogy legacy of sets.
  6. I'm honestly hyped like no one's buisness for this one; camping the webiste on launch day and using all my VIP for this one.
  7. VIP early access 16 of september niceeee.
  8. Yeahhh the outfit and colors seems to really match; nice eye. Saurins maybe?
  9. I'm guessing early access for VIP; there's a giant vip plug on the korean promo image.
  10. It looks like the guy that looks like a Devil, the guy besides him is greenish; could be the new alien added with the blue ray edition? And yeah it's Garindan! I'm counting 21 mini-figs.
  11. This is gonna be a pricey year for star wars lego fans isn't it? My poor wallet is screaming in pain ):

    1. I wouldn't put the entire blame on him; as a designer he has to work with a technic specialist that builds the skeleton of the set and the QA team that review said set also has their input to give. 2. Agreed. 5. Also agree, would love to have identified bags for said mini figs though.
  13. Oh my he's completly adorable. Nice inclusion of the mini-fig too.

    Playsets in the OT settings just haven't be tried much; Until recently Obi wan's home and yoda's hut had never been sold as a standalone set, Luke's home on tatooine (which has an interesting design) has not been done. Plenty of mos eisley locale and coruscant stuff could also be exploited but have not been so. On clones being the ''good guy'' faction with the best design I would partially agree, more so to younger audience. They look a bit too much like toys and have quite the personnalities for a mass produced weapon. I see them more as a scary tragic tool. Aesthetic wise I prefer the faceless, cold and imposing style the empire has. I also agree on your taste for fleet trooper design
  15. Yeah I feel you; My biggest fear is what is gonna be included. Another luke landspeeder and R2 and C3P0 is almost inevitable and it's gonna waste pieces and cost on something that 95% of fans already have and at this time readily available.
