Retro review time! While doing the review for 75136 Droid Escape Pod, I ran across a copy of 9490 Droid Escape and decided to review this one as well. I actually wrote this review first so I can get a better feel of how much better the newer set is.

Pros: You get 4 little Boba and Jango Fett look alikes... now you can have a Jedi hunt!
Cons: Bike is more complex... but that was kind of expected
Comments: I hope they make a few more battle packs like this with diffrent color Mandos

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.
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.
