First look at LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina
Hello there, what do we have here?! It turns out South Korea's LEGO Facebook page posted an image of the much-anticipated LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290)! Looks like it was an accident because the image was taken down immediately. According to the box, the set has 3187 pieces. The post said the set is slated to drop September 16th.
This set looks impressive at first glance and the following 11 minutes I have spent looking at this image. This is the closest LEGO Star Wars fans have gotten to a modular set in this galaxy far far away. Two locations, a speeder, creatures, droids, and the number of minifigures is impressive. We feel we can safely assume that will drive the cost of this set. Also, we got a sexy blue brick tool. Can never have enough of those little guys.
By our count there looks to be 21 minifigures that includes:
Cantina Band Bith x3
Right now there is no price available for this set. We're lucky to get an early glimpse of this set. LEGO collectors could possibly use modular buildings or the recently announced LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley set to come up with an estimate. The piece count could put this set anywhere between $150-$400.
