Review: 75048 The Phantom

75048 The Phantom 1

This thing is a piece of crap. 1 out of 5 stars. There. I’ve said it. And I’m tempted to end the review of 75048 The Phantom right here and now so we can all go about our day because this set is barely deserving any more attention than that. But that wouldn’t be right and I’m sure you’ll want to know why I hate it so much. So I’ll do my best to tell you exactly why.

There was about a week’s worth of time that passed between me building the set and me sitting here writing the review and during that time I was able to distill my feelings down to two coherent thoughts. The two main reasons why I hate this set are: 1) It’s ugly and 2) It’s not worth the money.

A quick break from Comic-Con to bring you a bit of sales news. Forum member psycho013 has alerted us to a pre sale on Amazon for the summer wave of Star Wars sets in the US. The Scout Fighter and Cantina sets are available at about a 15% discount.

75057 B-Wing is still MIA for pre-order.

New Hi-Res Shots of Rebels sets

Need a pre-Toy Fair taste of news that’s coming up? How about some hi-res images of the upcoming sets, via the Yak Face forums?

First up we have The Ghost, a large ship that features some interesting building with a distinctly Star Wars look and a lot of different cockpit canopies. Also, three new minifigs, Zeb Orrelios, Hera Syndulla, and Kanan Jarrus, as well as a Storm Trooper. I’m especially excited for Zeb, and not just because his last name makes me want to go grab some cookies!

Next up, we have The Phantom, which strikes me as a bit less Star Wars-y (you put some different colors on there and that’s Galaxy Squad), but features Ezra Bridger and C1-10P. The most interesting thing here is that our little astromech buddy has an obviously shorter torso and legs, meaning that he’s quite a bit shorter than his minifig buddy. The cockpit glass also stands out, and I wonder if that front marking is a sticker or printed…

We still don’t know a whole lot about Rebels, but if the ships are any indication, or the figures, it should be a decent successor to Clone Wars.
