Lego unveils new Star Wars Diorama sets

Published on: 25th March 2022

The three new Lego sets span iconic scenes from Star Wars: A New Hope and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes back movies. 

Star Wars fans will be able to create iconic scenes from two of the franchise’s movies with three new Lego Star Wars Diorama building sets.

Inspired by Star Wars: A New Hope, the Lego Star Wars Death Star Trench Run Diorama invites builders to recreate the gripping scene of Darth Vader’s pursuit of Luke Skywalker, as Luke fights to destroy the newly-built Death Star for a victory on the Rebellion side. The build can be finished off with the memorable words of Darth Vader. “The Force is strong with this one.”

The Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama building set features the dramatic Star Wars: A New Hope scene, where Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Princess Leia Organa are temporarily stranded after freeing the princess from Detention Block AA-23. The set is packed with authentic details including moving walls, a dianoga’s head and famous characters such as C-3PO, R2-D2, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca and Princess Leia. Han Solo’s witty remark “One thing’s for sure, we’re all gonna be a lot thinner,” completes this set.

Completing the trio is the Lego Star Wars Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama building set, with which fans can relive moments from Master Yoda’s hut in the swamps of Dagobah. It comes with minifigures representing the characters of Yoda, Luke Skywalker, and R2-D2 along with the famous words from Yoda, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”

The new sets are available from Lego stores and retailers on 26th April.
