LEGO has been churning out impressive Star Wars sets like there’s no tomorrow lately, and I couldn’t be happier. LEGO’s are always fun times, but their sets have also given kids and collectors some of the best toys from the films over the last few years (beating out Hasbro’s offerings in my opinion). Best of all, they aren’t slowing down any time soon. 

While this may be bad for my wallet, it’s great for fans. Today, they’ve officially announced a new set in their Star Wars Master Builder Series that puts all the focus on the events in Cloud City from Empire Strikes Back. Coming in close to 3,000 pieces, it’s a pretty large set to put together. It lets you build out four sections of Cloud City that incorporate those memorable scenes from the film with 18 minifigures (some of which include new scuplts/details). You even get to build a Cloud Car and Boba Fett’s Slave I!

There’s a landing platform complete with Boba Fett’s Slave I ship, a detailed promenade, a dining room with seating for 5 minifigures, a garbage processing room with incinerator, and a sensor balcony for epic Luke vs. Vader Lightsaber duels. There’s also a carbon freeze chamber with a function to ‘freeze’ Han in carbonite, an interrogation chamber and prison cell, a secondary landing platform for the Twin-Pod Cloud Car, and so much more. Add an astonishing 18 LEGO minifigures plus 2 droids to the mix, and you have a set that Star Wars and LEGO fans of any age would be proud to add to their collection.
