This Mos Eisley Spaceport LEGO diorama is a wretched hive of scum and villainy

The Mos Eisley spaceport has always attracted a rough crowd and this brilliant 6-foot-by-4-foot diorama by Australian LEGO wizard Joshua Morris depicts every nostalgic moment from our heroes' visit in  A New Hope.

Luke and Obi-Wan linger inside the cantina as the Jedi master slices off Ponda Baba's arm with his lightsaber while the alien band plays on.  Outside, traders, peddlers, droids and shopowners go about their outer rim business as Imperial stormtroopers patrol the outpost streets.  R2-D2 and C-3PO wait for the trouble to subside in a quiet corner.  A saddled dewback can be seen parked off to one side, as well as Luke's speeder and Boba Fett's ominous Slave One spaceship.  

Take a tour of this teeming Tatooine trading post in the gallery below and tell us what your favorite detail is.
