- January 27th, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Escape Pod and Dewback Setmomaw |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI've been out of the lego building game for quite a few years and am only just getting back into it again now. This was a fun build and shows how far the detail in the Star Wars sets and minifigs has come over the years. The R2 and 3PO have a very nice print on the body and the 3PO head is likewise impressive. The escape pod as a microship is what you would expect but it probably won't see much use from me as I transfer the R2 and 3PO over to the new'ish Sandcrawler set which oddly omitted them. The star of this set and what I suspect most buy it for is the dewback and it doesn't disappoint. It both looks like a dewback and at the same time captures that cute "chibi" look that you expect from this line. The articulation is well implemented. The sandtrooper is also a fantastic minifig with great printing, a wonderful helmet sculpt and a well designed backpack for the scale. I suspect if Lego had of released this as two separate items the dewback would sell in crazy numbers. I'd pick up a few more and army build but unfortunately as a two pack, this will be my only purchase. The price is probably fair given you get two microfighters. But as I really only wanted the dewback, I went back and forth over getting it. If it was in the $20AUD mark I'd probably grab another for a second dewback. Fingers crossed for a good sale.Play Experience4.0Value for Money3.0Build Time: 20 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Escape Pod vs. Dewback™ Microfighters
- January 1st, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0These are the droids you’re looking forI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfGreat little set in the microfighters range! Cute and capturing the atmosphere of the mos eisley scenes from ‘a new hope’, This set is worthwhile for the dewback-alright it’s not as great as the larger dewback in the cantina sets but it’s not bad! Captures the essence of the dewback in the film and looks good with trooper atop. Highlight for me is the trooper-nicely detailed! Also in the set, the standard r2 and threepio figures plus a mini escape pod. Ok, so they can’t really fit in it, but with microfighters range the scale is always slightly out, as they’re built for fun not really show pieces. All in all a good set tho!Play Experience5.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 20 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Escape Pod vs. Dewback™ Microfighters
- January 27th, 2019Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0"Look Sir, Droids"Xylfinna |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThe 2019 LEGO Star Wars Micofighters are out and I have to say this set is outstanding! The set "Escape Pod vs. Dewback Microfighters #75228, 177 pieces. Comes with a all new Sandtrooper with re-molded helmet, C-3PO, R2-D2, Escape Pod and Dewback. The build is straight forward and fun. I really enjoyed the Dewback build in this set, the feel and design works perfect in the Microfighters scale. However I feel the Escape Pod is a just a little to compact for C-3PO and R2-D2. But I understand the over all theme of the Micofighters series so in the end I'm ok with this. With lots of little extras in the set I would recommend pick one up, or like me I got two just for the Dewbacks and new Sandtrooper. Happy building to everyonePlay Experience4.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 15 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Escape Pod vs. Dewback™ Microfighters
- January 21st, 2019Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Great addition to Microfighters.I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is a really great set, hearkening back to Episode IV, with R2D2 and C3PO making their escape from the Empire, and running from the Stormtroopers on Dewbacks. While the piece count, at 177, is a bit low, the value is made up with the addition of a rare desert Stormtrooper with shoulder pauldron and backpack. The Dewback is admittedly out of scale, as is the escape pod; but this is Microfighters. With limited play value, the appeal, at least for me, was in the nostalgia of the Original Trilogy. Overall, a great addition to any collection. This is certainly one of my favorite Star Wars sets in it's simplicity.Level of Difficulty1.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 25 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Escape Pod vs. Dewback™ Microfighters
