Selling to kids is a lot different than selling to adults. There's a limited window for that customer, where they are coming in and leaving the market. At the same time, there are new kids coming in right behind that customer, looking to pick up the hobby. That means that re-releasing a set every few years is trying to make sure that the new batch of kids can find something recognizable to purchase... and regardless of how we feel about those prequel movies or cartoons, they are more popular with kids than they were with the adults that grew up with the original movies. Of course, all of that being said... there has got to be some more popular stuff to release than Stumbles McSpiderwalker here, last seen in the 2013 set of the same name, 75016 Homing Spider Droid, which it feels like I just reviewed a couple of months...(read more)

- The amazing new mini-figures
- The BARC Speeder is in my opinion the best battle-pack vehicle as of yet.
- The ARF-trooper would have looked so much cooler with a new printed body to fit that awesome helmet. (of course giving him the clone commander body is a suitable option)
- Two Bomb-squad troopers, which I think reduces the use of buying multiples of this set. (why would you want an army of Bomb-Squad troopers)
An awesome battle-pack to spruce up your clonetrooper army, even the BARC-speeder makes a great addition to your clone army ground forces. The only big drawback to me is the 2 bomb-squad troopers which would stop me from buying many multiples for army building since I think more than 4 or so bomb-squad troopers would be redundant (they are just not front-line army material in my opinion). I'd rather have seen TLG put in an extra of one of the other two or even better a clone pilot (I even would have settled for a regular clonetrooper), but all in all this battle-pack is worth it and a definite buy for any Lego SW fan.
