I dislike Greedo's weird lack of a neck, and Han Solo's hair that looks lime he put a barrel of moose into it, but everything else is pretty dope.

Given how when lego sets are updated and re-released, I tend to expect an overall change to the scope of the set. When the Mos Eisley Cantina was first released in 2004ish, my mind was blown, because we got Han, Luke, Obi-Wan, and brand new to the lego line, a Sandtrooper, and Greedo. To add, we got a Dewback, Luke's X-34 landspeeder, as well as the cantina which was really just a door, a table, and a small bar. It wasn't great by today's standards, but it was amazing at the time. Fast forward ten years and we get a huge improvement. We got Han, as well as Luke, Obi-Wan, Greedo, and a Sandtrooper with updated textures, as well as 3 Bith musicians, a largely expanded Cantina, updated X-34, and a Dewback that can be customized to be either domesticated or wild. This set was larger, but definitely worth the price. And four years later we have this. This set isn't terrible, but it isn't an improvement. It's really just...average. Han is updated with his new hair, and we finally have Wuher as well as a White Pauldron Sandtrooper with updated textures, and of course greedo. But really, this set seems like a version of the 2004 edition with a slightly updated pieces. The Ubrikkian 9000 is a nice touch that makes it feel new, but this set seems really average and lackluster compared to the 2014 version. Like my title, it feels like one step forward (Wuher and the Ubrikkian 9000), and two steps back (drastically reduced Cantina size, with a lower amount of minifigures).

Recommendation: meh 3.6 / 5 by Rob

This is a curious set with lots of features that still work in its favour, in spite of a clumsy nature when put together. It will initially disappoint anyone who has built 2014's Mos Eisley Cantina – 75205's whole is not greater than the sum of its parts – but look beyond that and everything about the set is relevant and still an update on what has come before. It's better to have half a Mos Eisley Cantina set than no Mos Eisley Cantina set, and it's slightly easier on the wallet than a lot of other LEGO Star Wars releases at the moment.

Recommendation: no 3 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

Well, let's dissect it part by part: the minifigures are not bad – the four figures are quite good and make a good addition to a LEGO fan's minifigure collection. The builds though, aren't very good if you ask me. They do look complete, but they're very small and aren't very convincing. Playability is limited because of the cramped rooms, and the price is pretty high.

Remakes are an inevitable aspect of the LEGO Star Wars range and this is not an issue in my opinion, as long as they represent an improvement over the previous set or take a distinct approach to its design. Unfortunately, 75205 Mos Eisley Cantina is not entirely successful in that regard. Wuher is a welcome addition to the set and the seating alcove is more detailed than it was in 75052 Mos Eisley Cantina but I think the older model remains superior.

The $39.99 retail price initially feels a bit high for a small structure, one-man speeder, and four minifigures, but the part count of 378 shows it to be not far off the mark (coming in only a hair above the magical $0.10-per-piece ratio that LEGO sets average). If you have the 2014 version, you'll need to weigh your choices more closely unless you find a sale. If you only have the 2004 version, or don't have a Mos Eisley Cantina at all, you'll definitely want to pick this up.
