The first wave of Toy Story sets based off the first two movies came in blue packaging with clouds, mimicking the wallpaper seen in Andy’s room in Toy Story. The package design changed to an overall white scheme with the release of Toy Story 3 sets to better visually tie in all the sets together.

When we first saw the list of the Force Awakens sets (which, of course, we are supposed to pretend we didn't see), there was little shock that almost all of the sets had some sort of ancestor in the original trilogy. 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 guess getting left behind on Hoth along with the smaller equipment really chaffed them a bit. I can't say as I was really looking forward to reviewing 75100 First Order Snowspeeder, because I've been snowspeeder-d out for some time. Once we had the "official" pictures, it became clear that this ship wasn't connected to the old one at all... it was a completely different beast that was notable for having a higher piece count ratio, 440 parts at $39.99, than the rest of the lineup.

Pros: Well-constructed, great aesthetic, exclusive Zurg minifig. Great parts selection.
Cons: Little light on the play features, model is a little small for what you pay.

Pros: construction/features slightly reminiscent of Classic Space, exclusive Zurg minifig; includes a nice variety of colors from ubiquitous and useful to wild and fanciful
Cons: design aesthetic/recognizability relies heavily on stickers
Comments: This is pretty much a meat and potatoes spaceship that happens to be from a licensed IP. Solid build with small rover bot thing that stows away in the ample rear compartment which can be revealed by opening hinged segments that make up the upper fuselage (sort of a half clam-shell arrangement - functional and sturdy). A separate access hatch (4x4 plate attached to handle/clip plates) exists at the aft section for the rover.
