The real shock was that the Snowspeeder, the perpetual release of the OT Lego lineup, has apparently decided to switch sides and join the First Order.

I recently did a review/alternate build on this set on another
Pros: Loved that TLG finally put out some Mandos. Excellent helmet pieces and guns.

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