Comparing LEGO Star Wars dioramas to other sets
From a galaxy far, far away, a new collection of LEGO Star Wars sets will be launching soon, but we’ve seen similar sets based on these scenes before.
75329 Death Star Trench Run Diorama, 75330 Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama, and 75339 Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama will launch soon, April 26, 2022, but we’ve seen all three of these scenes in LEGO sets before, and they make for an interesting comparison.
That shouldn’t hurt this upcoming trio in any way, as these older models focus much more on play than display, as the LEGO for Adults label on all three 2022 creations indicates.
For this list, we’ve selected the most relevant LEGO set for the most part, although 75330 Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama will be compared to two since one was a convention exclusive.
3 – 75329 Death Star Trench Diorama
As of 75329 Death Star Trench Run Diorama, the only other trench-based version was 2019’s 75235 X-wing Starfighter Trench Run, although there are more differences than similarities here since one is a set 4+, and the other is targeted at 18+.
Both include a model for Luke Skywalker’s X Wing as well as a turret, but otherwise the 2019 build was arguably not the best representation of the trench, as it lacked the titular trench.
2 – 75330 Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama
The latest Dagobah House of Yoda model was released in 2018 with 75208 Yoda’s Hut, featuring the same selection of figures as 75330 Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama. However, it might be more accurate to compare the new Diorama to a convention-exclusive set.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2015, Dagobah Mini Build was offered to guests, and although it’s microscale, it has roughly the same layout as 75330 Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama with the hut on the left and a curved marsh section to the right.
1 – 75339 Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama
The last of the three LEGO Star Wars Diorama Collection showcased on April 26 is the 75339 Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama, representing a piece only seen in the two massive Death Star models.
In 75159 Death Star, the most recent reissue, this room was just a section of the model and featured two solid walls at angles that could compress the interior, shifting loose parts as it does. The theatrical feature of the 75339 Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama that sees the modules slide along with the walls is at least going to keep things tidier.
