7914 Mandalorian Battle Pack

Staff Review:

If there's one thing I solidly love about the Clone Wars it's the Battle Packs. And while I haven't been following the Clone Wars TV show and I'm not entirely familiar with their current role in the Saga, the Mandalorian armor has always been a nice design, so a small well armed squad featuring them is more than welcome set.

    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.
