Bear in mind that I was 6 or 7 when I saw it.
Anyway - the trash compactor. And the incidental music during the trash compaction.
Why did that particular scene ring the badass bell in my head when I saw it? Maybe that is just where the backlog of mind-blowings caught up with me. Maybe it's the peek into the implied backdrop (of course a Death Star will generate garbage - wonder what they do with it?). Pretty prosaic epiphany...
The Jawa music too was cool.
