4500 Rebel Snow Speeder review
EDIT: New box pics added sorry they're a bit blurry because of the light I took them in.
This is the original trilogy edition version of this set but there aren't any differences to the normal one.
1. Manual & Box
The front of the OTE box
The minifgs on the box top.
The back of the box with some alternate models and overview of some of the functions.
The manual cover. You can see it is the OTE version of the set.
1 of 2 posters in the instructions.
The second poster.
2. General set and minifigs
The built set contents.
The three figs with the included weapons.
How I like to customize the pilots helmets.
Luke from 4500 and Luke from 10178 Motorized AT-AT.
The three helmets included with the set.
Here's the turret with the Rebel gunner standing next to it.
The controls for the turret .
The turret can rotate and tilt two fire at those pesky AT-AT walkers.
I put a spider web sort of radar dish thing on like on the original 7130 to make it look more like the one from TESB.
4. The Speeder
A front view of the speeder.
The pilot controls with a AT-AT print.
The seats for the pilot and rear gunner.
The rear gunner's tow cable.
A detailed printed plate next to the engines.
Printed plates under the air-brake things.
More printed parts, there is no DSS with this set.
Got tie up those walkers. We might need some more tow cable .
Build: 7/10 Pretty symmetrical build but it's fun.
Minifigs: 8/10 3 figs in a £20 set is pretty good I think.
Design: 9/10 Very strong and close to minifig scale. The turret could have some work though.
Parts: 8/10 lot's of variety and includes some interesting ones such as the cockpit and rear air vent.
Price: 7/10 3 figs and 214 parts not to bad I guess.
Playability: 6/10 Could be better if it came with a Snow Trooper.
Overall: 8/10 The set comes with 3 figs that only come with more expensive sets, also it has a variety of different parts as well as the build being enjoyable.
