Okay, before we get this review rolling, let me cover the most important point for the whole thing: I know R4’s head is on backwards. He should be glad I even put it on, since all he does in the movie is suck and die when a buzz droid shows up. R2-D2 would have straight up murdered the buzz droid that landed on his ship.
It was a given that I would review 75135 Obi-Wan’s Jedi Interceptor, since this is on my list of “didn’t buy that set” regrets. With this re-release, I’m down to just needing the UCS TIE Interceptor and Cloud City to come out in some form (or, for the UCS TIE Interceptor, I just need to build my own cause that’s never going to get remade… right after I make my UCS TIE Bomber).
At 215 pieces and only Obi-Wan and his trusty Astromech, this set is a bit on the petite side. Of course, it’s quite similar to Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor we got a couple of years ago, so it’s not that huge of a deviation overall. But, compared to sets in the same price range these days, a single minifig and astromech does stick out a bit, especially when both are just repaints. Still, this is a ship that has been missing from the the lineup for years, and it’s still nice for it to finally get some love.
