LEGO Star Wars
Star Wars Rebels is a 3D animated TV serie which takes place between the “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” and “Episode IV: A new hope”. The cruisers of the “Ghost” fight against the Empire and they will become the seed of the Rebel Alliance.
Last year LEGO launched the “Ghost” and “The Phantom” sets as a start of this new subline of Star Wars. This year we have 5 new sets of Star Wars Rebels with new and unseen models.
One of them is the one I am going to analyze today: Ezra’s Speeder Bike.
The human condition normally makes the people to be near of the “good guys”. But one of the many special features of the fan phenomenon of Star Wars is the Dark Side fans. With Darth Vader in front of this people, the fans of the Dark Side do a lot of tributes to the “bad guys” and their fights against the rebels. Now the Dark Side fans of LEGO have their own Bible: LEGO Star Wars The Dark Side (Uncover the secrets of the Siths)
75014 is another Star Wars set that is centred on the famous battle on the frozen planet of Hoth. 367 pieces and 7 minifigs, which makes it a very attractive set. The first impression is: "Well, another Hoth set...” and it is really hard to get away from that first idea, because basically the set doesn't add anything to the existing sets. We already have two battlepacks with minifigs and the first base (7666), which includes a snowspeeder and an Imperiral Probe Droid that are practically identical to the ones in this new set, the second base (7879), the Echo Base with the Tauntaun and imperial snowspeeder and set 8089, the Wampa Cave with another similar snowspeeder.
Does that mean this set isn't worth buying? Absolutely not. Except in case you have the previous ones, it is a set that contains all the necessary elements for creating your own battle of Hoth layout. And if you have the previous sets... a larger layout.
But let's get started with the review. The box is medium sized and opens on one of the sides. It contains two instruction booklets, three numbered bags and a fourth bag just for the Tauntaun.
This year the "May the 4th" promotion at LEGO Shop at Home consists in a brand new minifig as giveaway. It is a reproduction of Han Solo at Hoth.
HispaBrick Magazine has the opportunity to show the minifigure some time before the official release date.
