Just the men I need in the 501st!
on 11 March 2013
This walker is a bit bigger than the one in the recent clone battle pack. At nearly twice the price - you would expect so! Retailing at £19.99, you get 3 mini-guys, a good sized 'all terrain walker', and a droideka - also known as 'rolling death balls'. It still seems quite a price hike (an increase of £9 or so) from the original battle packs, with 4 troopers and a small walker/speeder.
You do get a Yoda mini guy with a new 'hoodie' body print, a new 501st, blue print clone wars trooper and a commando droid captain, which also has a new printed face plate. All are quite nice mini figure prints.
The walker has new 501st blue decor, it looks pretty cool. Our 7 year old found it an easy build he could do by himself following the lego instructions. The trickiest bit was fitting the 'cockpit' onto the legs - he did manage it himself eventually.
I wish it had included more than 1 trooper in the pack, rather than a commando droid - I find these a bit wet, and we already have loads of droids to fight anyway - but only 1 501st trooper :(
Price wise it is retailing at the same price as the original battle packs on Amazon (which are no longer available from lego) so I guess this is now better value.
