Staff Review:

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)

    I recently did a review/alternate build on this set on another forum.

    Pros: Loved that TLG finally put out some Mandos. Excellent helmet pieces and guns.

    Cons: Speederbike was sadly simple but then it does look like the bike that appears in the Series. Also only one color of Mando. :(

    Final Comments: Speeder bike and turret can be easily combined into heavy speederbike. Making this set a fun and easy build.
