Star Wars Lego – New Units for 2014

Star Wars Lego - New Sets for 2014

The preliminary units that took my eye was the “The Phantom” and “The Ghost”. The rationale I observed these had been as a result of I hadn’t seen these spaceships earlier than. It seems that they are featured within the new TV sequence – Star Wars: Rebels. Each ships embody minifigures from the TV sequence, and each have a really distinctive look. “The Phantom” appears like a cross between a shuttle craft and cargo provider. “The Phantom” appears like some kind of private preventing craft, maybe in the same vein because the Millennium Falcon was to Han Solo in The Unique Trilogy. I suppose all will probably be revealed later this month, as quickly because the TV sequence premieres.The next set I observed was the Star Wars Snowspeeder, and this I nearly bought for my son. He loves Empire Strikes Again, and we have now spent many an hour recreating the Battle of Hoth. This appears nice, and I urge you to hunt it down if you happen to’re into authentic trilogy Lego units. Moreover it’s included with Luke Skywalker, Dak Raltor (his gunner), together with a Snowtrooper. The speeder has two spring-loaded missiles, and likewise a rear harpoon hook/blaster.If you wish to go the entire hog, the subsequent set I want to point out could be the AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport). This additionally appears like the real factor, and you’ll transfer the pinnacle, shoot missiles (once more, spring-loaded), open up the facet hatches and arrange the lure door Luke makes use of to in the end destroy these four-legged strolling tanks. This set has 5 minifigures, of Imperial selection.Subsequent is the Imperial Star Destroyer. That is one you may want a spare room to maintain in! You possibly can take off high to disclose the inside, together with bridge, management room, and extra. You get eight minifigures with this – Darth Vader, Imperial Officer, two Stormtroopers, Imperial Navy Trooper, Imperial Crew, plus two new and distinctive figures – an Emperor Palpatine Hologram and Mouse Droid.If you happen to actually have cash to burn, and a spare room to maintain it in, subsequent up is the Jawa Sandcrawler. This factor is giant, and once more, appears the half. It comes with a steering mechanism, working cranes, lowerable entrance ramp, raisable facet panels and heaps extra (even a speeder bike!). A real eye catcher, the Sandcrawler contains all kinds of minifigure,s together with Luke Skywalker, Uncle Lars, C3P-O, R2-D2, Jawas, and some different droids.The final two I got here throughout had been the B-wing, and Mos Eisley Cantina. The B-wing has a rotating cockpit (identical as within the motion pictures), adjustable wings, and spring-loaded missiles. Three minifigures include the B-wing. The Mos Eisley Cantina set appears superior, and is definitely a wonderful addition if you’re additionally looking for to incorporate some Unique Trilogy characters to your present Lego assortment. These embody Luke Skywalker, Ben Kenobi, Han Solo (and Greedo – you get to determine who shoots first!), Cantina band, dewback and Sandtrooper.Having now seen these units, I’ll be heading again nearly definitely with the intention to get my son the Snowspeeder, and relying on how Star Wars: Rebels goes, he might also be getting some model new Star Wars automobiles so as to add to his assortment!
