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: I don't like to say this, but the figures are amazing. Ham and Rex are insanely cute, and the overall selection of figures is quite nice. Additionally, the look of the set is spot on, and there's a number of fun features to be had.
Cons: The price.
Comments: I was striving to think of more cons for the set, but really, it's only real problem is the price. The figures are excellent, it looks almost precisely like the source material, it has an excellent parts package, and is just overall a very strong set. That being said, it is in no way worth forty bucks. I understand it's because of the large pieces and the specially-molded figures, but I can't look at it and justify it being that much. Ah, well. Besides that infraction, it is a superb set, and I'd say if you can find it discounted (I got it for Christmas myself), definitely don't miss the chance to pick it up. 7/10 overall.

Pros: Great details, printed parts, lots of figs, and it shoots pizzas!
Cons: Can't see too many with this set
Comments: This set is really darn-near perfect. The look is spot-on, which is aided by printed parts (no stickers here!). Comes with several windscreen parts. The truckbed cover pops off fairly easily to seat Rex and others in the truckbed. The pizza shooter actually works quite well, though it is mounted in the chassis so it works best on a hard surface (pizzas slide) and does not send pizzas airborne.
