This set is absolutely the best set of 2020, cant belive that Lego give us such a decent battle pack. 4 beautiful clone minifigs and all of them are incredible, bonus two battle droids for more fun, the vehicles are cool too, normally vehicles in battlepack are bad and people only buy for the minifigs. So everything in this set is just perfect, worth everysingle penny. I am crazy about taking pictures of this set just because the clones are super badass and awesome !!! Expecting more clone wars set will be released in the future !
First, I’d like to clear something up for other buyers: this is NOT a battle pack! A lot of people think it is for some reason.
It has two large vehicles, six characters, and there isn’t “battle pack” written anywhere on the box. But anyway, this set is awesome! The six characters are three normal 501st clone troopers, one with a bigger gun, a 501st jet trooper, and two normal separatist battle droids, which are all good for army building. They are all very nicely designed, and all come with weapons. Now, let’s talk about the builds that come with the set. The BARC speeder is really cool, and looks much better than older designs of it! They did a really good job, and even though stud-shooters aren’t the most powerful weapon, they can still knock over a droid! The AT-RT is actually the second AT-RT to be made in LEGO, but this one has a new look to it, and in my opinion, a better design. Unfortunately, it can only stand in one position, unless you have something to support it(like putting a battle droid under one foot). But it looks really cool, and can also shoot a droid down. You can make really cool scenes with this set, as well, especially when you add more characters and even more vehicles(see my last two pictures)! My only other complaint is all the stickers, which need to be replaced by printing pieces. If your like me, and you love Star Wars, especially the Prequels, and LEGO, I would 100% recommend this set!
I was hyped about the set since august but did not have the opportunity to pick it up until recently because stock keep running out. I was quite happy with it til I saw the flawed prints on the helmet on the pictures below. I bought 3 sets, built and played with 2, and 5 out of the 8 figures had issues with prints. When you examine the center ridge, the prints are off. I tried to mark it in red to make it more apparent but it should be rather obvious if one took a close look. Maybe I am oversensitive about this but this kind of printing did not impress me. It seems to me also that this kind of issues have been happening for a while now, since I also bought a set containing R2D2 a while back and it had a very crooked printing where the center dome print is off and sideways. I did not care then since I had other R2s, but this set and 5 out of 8 had some kind of printing misalignment is not really impressive to me.
The set was a quick but fun build, both vehicles look great and have some nice detailing with the stickers. The 501st troopers look really good, I just personally had a slight misprint on one of the 501st trooper helmets and a slight misprint on the 501st jet trooper helmet. Nothing too severe just a little off center. Other than that the set is great if you like the 501st and goes well with the new AAT (75283)
