Ok, this is my first preview, I'd like to start with a new masterpiece for every SW lego fan

REBEL scout speeder.

After about 8 years, TLC give us rebels minifigs, with weapon (not megaphone) and new and sweet oohhhh very sweet casco!

and so, the photos:

at least i think that this is a very beautiful minifigs set. NOTE: not a bricks set, a minis set.

So if you like build your rebel army and sell bricks is very good,

if you want a good star wars speeder :-X don't give him a chance!

overall

props:

4 minis

4 blasters (2 rifles, 2 pistols)

price (12,99 euros)

slops:

pink faces (sob, i prefer yellow...)

stickers,

speeder bad designed

I hope to give you a good visual report

may be the force with you

First, welcome to EB!

Second, thanks for the review, it's nice to see a new member jump right in like this!

Third, you're wrong! >:-( X-D

Ok, ok, I really like the speeder, I sincerely do. I despise the imperial dropship (crapship), but I think this one is actually pretty nice. I haven't had the heart to take it apart and expect to leave a couple assembled.

I am with you on stickers though and I'm not applying them to either set.

As for what to do with all the spare speeders when you end up buying this for the figures, I'm thinking of trying something like the little pilot transport seen in A New Hope on Yavin 4. Or maybe a super bobsled! :-D

I love my rebels!!! *wub* They're awesomeness is almost better than that of clones. But the speeder...I put it together, hated it, took it apart, tried to MOC with it, but the bricks are just so bad for MOCing I quickly gave up. Then I put the speeder back together. Ugh. How I hate the vehicle in this set.

Thanks for the reviews.

The Rebel speeder looks better than the imperial Crapship, but the Dropship has a big advantage: STORMIES!!! Can't stand those rebel helmets; they are great big, but the face and the rest of the body has no protection. Strange...

I like everything about this set. The speeder, the parts, the minifigs, even the price is pretty good. One of the best LEGO sets in years - and it's under

Excellent review Nausicaakro. Welcome to Eurobricks!

Even though I have to agree with some of my other Eurobricks colleagues that I quite like the speeder, I'm always interested in a different point of view that's nicely stated like yours.

Like you I too would prefer yellow faces, mainly because I've been a Star Wars Lego collector since the line started, and most of my figs are still yellow, so I'd like the new ones to match! I've managed to find yellow replacements for most of my new Star Wars figs, but this one's got me stumped. I can't find a yellow face with a chin strap. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Yes! A good review of this set, finally my mind has been put to rest after buying some of them for the people, they look plain out bad in the catalogue.

I thought the vehicle was OK, except for the fact that IT HAS NO STEERING WHEEL!!! How are the rebels supposed to steer the damn thing? Thought control??? I know the designer had to cut down parts, but something that essential? Ouch...

Just finished it. Thanks Yoda for being on a late shift today as I started building the second it was delivered.

Yeah, it's a nice set. Those rebel troopers are great, especially the helmets. My one quibble would be that that they've all got the same expression!

And the Speeder has no controls.

This and the Dropship make a great combined set.

yeah, I think that was better if they had different faces / expression... maybe in future other rebel sets... really we need a rebel captain!!

or a mon-calamari! :'-)

My idea of buying this set was wavering a bit, but thanks to your awesome review, I'm now sure I want it! X-D So, thanks for the great review, has anyone noticed how Legos usually look really small in pictures (Im not being stupid) I'm serious, like, you see a picture of a set like this or the motorcycle chase, and you figure "Meh, it's not that big" but when you get it, it's like 8-

oh yes, me too.

I see a set in a picture and I think: ok, it is quite smal... after I built it and: SBAM! surprise! It is large! Where i can put it? I cannot buy set too much large... i don't have space! |-/

So, yes, for me lego seems smaller that in reality... :-D

Rebel Scout Speeder

lego-7668-1.jpg

I picked this up a year ago. It was my very first lego star wars set! Now, let's get on with the review!

Model: *****

I really loved the design for the speeder. The lazer turret is meant to be detatchable. The great design has made this speeder the official ride for my custom minifig. In short, THE SPEEDER RULES!!!!

Minifigures: ****

I loved how they gave the rebels their design from episode IV. These four rebels would have gotten 5 stars if the set came with a storm trooper for them to chase in their speeder. :laugh:

acessories: ***

Wow. 4 guns. The exact kind that come with every $10.00 set nowadays. *Yawn*

Price: *****

$10.00

This is quite a bargain for a set like this! I recommend you to go and buy this right now!

Overall: *****

It has a few flaws, but the speeder deserves 5 stars. I command you to buy it now!

Thanks for the review, but can you try to post some pictures? Almost all EuroBricks reviews have pictures.

I posted one.

He means pictures of the set you own. It's a pretty pointless review to show the official computer image. You need box pictures, and withing build pictures, and pictures of the angles. So, if you're interested in reviewing, then you should go to the Bonaparte's reviewers academy, where they teach you how to take good pictures, and make "worthy" reviews.

I would give you a link, but my computer's being a pain and I'm lazy. :tongue:

I believe that it is still a WIP

Brad-The-Brick, welcome to Eurobricks. :classic:

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, on the Rebel Scout Speeder set, but reviews in Eurobricks is much more than meet the eye with more involvement and preparation in terms of content, structure and images. Take a look at the Star War's review index which was done by our members. If you are interested to find out more about reviewing and and develop interest, you could sign up for the Reviewers Academy.

If this is WIP, I am gladly to amend the title for you to reflect the changes.
