LEGO Contents & The Build

Inside the box, you’ll find four bags of LEGO pieces. The bags are not numbered. You also get a small instruction booklet.

Here are the pieces sorted out.

There are some printed pieces including a LEGO Star Wars 2021 logo as well as some brown printed pieces for the mini LEGO Sandcrawler. Its awesome that this set has printed pieces and not stickers! LEGO likes to give you stickers usually.

Here is a page of some of the pieces that will be used in the LEGO Star Wars 40451 Tatooine Homestead Micro Build set.

Here is the finished built set! Details include a red mini LEGO Landspeeder and a LEGO Sandcrawler. There are also some studs around the Sandcrawler that represents some of the famous Star wars characters like Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Jawas, C-3PO, Owen Lars and Aunt Beru.

Overall Thoughts

This set took about 45 minutes to build (includes sorting the pieces). A cool diorama LEGO gift for the LEGO Star Wars fans. Unfortunately, there isn’t much playability for the kids. This is more of a display model featuring the Tatooine landscape.
