The Star Wars Trash Compactor Scene, Now in LEGO

No one who saw it will ever forget the trash compactor scene from the original 1977 movie Star Wars. It was both funny and tension-filled, and it highlighted how previous space movies never addressed the necessary infrastructure of a spaceship with a large crew. And kids loved it because it was really gross. Now you can relive those memories with LEGO's new Death Star™ Trash Compactor Diorama. Once you assemble the 802 pieces, you can recreate the moment our heroes confront the danger of being compacted, while C3PO and R2D2 fret on the outside. Yes, the walls of this diorama move, so that you can squish the minifigs and the debris! This set even includes the head of the dianoga monster that scared us all. The trash compactors is one of three new Star Wars sets that will be available to preorder on April 26 for under $100.

The other new Star Wars LEGO sets include the Dagobah™ Jedi™ Training Diorama, which tells the story of Luke's week or so stay at Yoda's place. It has a thousand pieces, which should keep you busy for even longer.

​The third set is the Death Star™ Trench Run Diorama which has no minifigs but some cool spaceships, and at $59.99, it is the most affordable of the three new LEGO sets. -via Mental Floss
