This Custom LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Spaceport Diorama is the Perfect Place for a Traveling Mandalorian

We’re just counting the hours away before Season 3 of the Mandalorian streams at Disney+. And though we’re not sure if Pedro Pascual’s Din Djarin will visit this legendary location once again just like he did in the 5th episode of Season 1 (“The Gunslinger”), it’s good to know that fellow LEGO Star Wars fan Joshua Morris made an accurate custom LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Spaceport diorama for a Mandalorian to rest his head.

This massive Star Wars diorama from Joshua Morris (aka I Scream Clone over at Flickr) will definitely stick in our heads. Working in collaboration with two more members from SydLUG or the Sydney LEGO Users Group in Australia, namely Matthew Lawrence (shnake1973) and legolocodavid, this diorama is an impeccably detailed version of the Mos Eisley Spaceport using 24 base plates. It is one playful rendition of the most dangerous place in the Star Wars galaxy. As Morris says, “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.” I sincerely doubt if I will skirt around this one.

Though LEGO managed to pull out an impressive, large-scale official LEGO Star Wars Master Builder Series Mos Eisley Cantina 75290 back in 2020, this brick rendition is the closest thing that you can get to the desert environment of the planet Tattooine. This custom LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Spaceport is jam-packed with all the details that show the wonderfully chaotic world of the meanest scums, villains, and bounty hunters across the galaxy. The buildings and structures are all spot-on, as it perfectly captures the architecture unique to the desert planet. Furthermore, Boba Fett couldn’t be happier with the free parking space. What is mind-blowing is the fact that this 6 X 4 ft. diorama is just a third of the entire project that Morris and the rest of his SydLUG partners are working on. Here’s a closer look at some of the diorama’s sections, including the details inside the Cantina. A round of applause for the Cantina Band minifigs.

We hope to see Morris and the team from SydLUG complete this ambitious project. You may drop him a note through his Flickr account if you wish to inspire him further.
