LEGO Trouble on Tatooine review: Beskar Mando debuts

Now that we’ve taken a look at two of the larger builds from the new LEGO Star Wars 2021 lineup, we’re shifting gears to go hands-on with one of the more affordable creations from a galaxy far, far away. Finally giving fans the long-awaited Beskar-clad Mandalorian figure, the LEGO Trouble on Tatooine set offers the most affordable way yet to bring Baby Yoda to your collection on top of other notable builds. Head below for all of the details. 

Hands-on with the new LEGO Trouble on Tatooine set

On top of the two downsized Original Trilogy starfighters we’ve already gone hands-on with, LEGO is also out with a new playset to kick off the year. The 277-piece Trouble on Tatooine LEGO creation centers itself around the the first episode of The Mandalorian season two, so some minor spoilers ahead if you’re not caught up. 

Included alongside the three minifigures here are a trio of builds from the deserts of Tatooine and specifically Chapter 9 of The Mandalorian. The largest of these creations assembles part of a Tusken Raider encampment, marking the very first time we’ve seen one of these huts in the nearly 22 years of LEGO Star Wars builds. 

To go alongside the tent structure, LEGO has assembled a brick-built version of the ballista from the episode, which is much more intricate than the other build. Lastly, LEGO is including a brick-built version of Mando’s speeder bike from the episode, as well. It’s fairly accurate to the on-screen inspiration and just like everything else in the set, makes good use of the allotted pieces. 

Despite this being one of the smaller builds from the winter Star Wars wave, LEGO managed to pack in some pretty nice features here. As for the hut, the entire build can fold open to reveal plenty of space to position minifigures underneath. The design more than accomplishes the kind of ragged and worn down look that you’d expect here and even manages to allow for those added play features.
