Depending on who you ask, you’ll find no shortage of Star Wars fans who will tell you that Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, is the greatest Star Wars film of all time. In fact, it’s also commonly considered one of the greatest movie sequels of all time as well. This is largely because the movie features SO many iconic scenes. The Battle of Hoth, the Darth Vader –Luke Skywalker plot twist, the introduction of Yoda, and pretty much everything that happens on Cloud City. Now, thanks to Lego Star Wars, you’ll be able to recreate the famous Betrayal at Cloud City with this 2,812 piece set.
Lego Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City
Cloud City hosts without a doubt some of the most memorable scenes in the entire Star Wars film franchise. Between Han Solo being frozen solid in carbonite, to the first appearance of cult favorite character Boba Fett, to the iconic battle between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker where the latter loses his hands and finds out some truly troubling family news. Now you’ll be able to relive all of those famous scenes with your very own Lego Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City set.
