Lego "Shop @ Home" Description
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?

1. Very detailed

4. Very accurate to the movie
6. A must have
7. NO STICKERS
8. With the droids that you are looking for.
1. 1 Sand trooper instead of two
This set is quite a worth while set to own, It is fun to build and this is the first ever set that I have ever came in to ownership that has a c3-po minifig and a obi wan kenobi. I do like the detail of the set and on the minifigures them selves. I say bravo to Lego group for this and good thing that there are not any of those lousy stickers.

In this set you can re-create Luke,Obi-wan and the droids getting past the security Sandtroopers in Mos Eisly spaceport.
Pros - Good characters
- Easy to assemble
- Sturdy Design
- Little Compartment
Cons - Price
- Should be two Sandtroopers like in the movie
- No-where for R2 - D2 to sit
Overall a good set but very pricey.
I rate it a 8/10

This set is just brilliant. It is priced perfectly (for once in 2010, LEGO actually got the pricing of a Star Wars set spot on!), it looks fantastic, the minifigures are great, and you can recreate that classic moment in Mos Eisley from A New Hope.
So, the minifigures - all rare and look great!
Firstly, Luke and Ben Kenobi - they look accurate and this is the only cheep was to get hold of them at the moment (The Death Star is Â£275!) Secondly, the Stormtrooper - An ordinary trooper, except for the lovely little shoulder strap addition given to Sand-troopers and the pack on his back!
Then we have the Droids. The security Droid is an accurate little figure. The newly designed R2-D2 for the classic series looks great as usual, but the highlight for me is C-3PO, becuase this is the only set since all the sets from Jabba's Palace that gives you a CHEEP Threepio - you have to pay £100 + for any over set like the Tantive IV, the Old Millenium Falcon, the Death Star and so on, so it was a joy when I found out he was in this set.
What you first notice about this set when it's finished is that it's actually quite big - much bigger than the original version back in 1999. After the red colour scheme of the last Landspeeder, LEGO have got the colour spot on this time - a dark beige colour with a little of grey and crimson. The cockpit and engine pieces are rare and are very movie-accurate. The side plating at the front is perfect too.
THE OTHER STUFF
Like I said, the pricing is perfect, because the size and the amount of pieces correspond perfectly with the £24.99 price tag. Also, the build is straightforward and quick, making it a good set for beginners. And the pieces are all rare colours, which is another plus.
C-3PO, Ben Kenobi and episode 4 Luke in a cheep set.
Other minifiures are really good too.
The landspeeder is quite big
It is very movie accurate
Great colour scheme and detail
Good engine, cockpit and side-plating pieces
Rare Pieces and elements
Not a single con!
This is such a classic set with the minifigures, the price and the playibility.
RATING OUT OF 10: 10/10
