Staff Review:

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.

    Pro: I like the dirty mini figs! Woot.

    Con: I didn't like the build, conveyor belt and the claw doesn't really work that well.

    Comments: I got the set as a bday gift, I wouldn't own the set otherwise. I thought the build was boring. I plan to strip the set down and use it for a MOC in the near future. The dirty mini aliens were my fav plus you get two of them.

    Pros: Great part selection with some rare pieces and colours. Fun play features and a quick, simple build. Just 30 minutes with a 3 year old assisting.

    Cons: The Minifigs are a little too unique IMO. The crane is a bit top heavy and it's winch is a tad too tight.

    Comments: The only reason I bought this sets is because it went on clearance for $25, I'm not a fan of the dirty spots on the figs as it makes them far less usable. At that price it's a great parts pack with a load of useful pieces. My son and I just finished building it and he's been enjoying it all morning and the only problem he's had is with the crane. If they had weighed the bottom down or attached it to the compactor it would be much better. I rated this set a 6, but it would probably have been an 8 if the figures were the normal variety.
