Here is my first review so do not hesitate to give me tips so I can make better reviews next.

The landspeeder is a 10 year old set, and the first one I get in the Star Wars collection.

Here are the figures :

landspeeder's set's reference
: 7110
year of release : 1999
price : 50 FFr (This set is older than euro  :wink: , if I translate to euro, it is about 7,50 €).
parts : 47
minifigs : 2 ObiWan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker.
And no stickers, it was the good old time when LEGO did not include a DSS in every set.


the instructions
first and last page are the same as the front and the back of the box :


first page :

last page : like for the other sets of this period, the minifigs building together the set and an alternative construction idea

A random page

note the small pictures of the movie in the top of the page
I though it was great to have these because we could see the reference of the action and the building is more pleasant. (even if building LEGO is synonym of fun  :laugh: )


the set itself :

Nearly nothing to say about it. It is one of the smallest LEGO StarWars but it comes with two great minifigs and a chromed light saber.

Here are the minifigs

the landspeeder is rather small with a low design. There are not rare pieces in this set except the sand reactors.

Without minifigs

With the two heroes :

Note the place to put the lightsaber just beside the seats.
There is no function in this set but the speeder is enough smooth to have a good playability.

Just to compare with the landspeeder of Mos Eisley Cantina set :

The oldest one is less accurate in size and colour but is still a good set.
I don't like to give a mark to a set because this one would not get a good mark if I was objective.

The pros are : a cheap set with two good minifigs
                      a small and with a medium-good playability set (apart making the two guys going out, there is not many things to do with it)

Cons :  the lack of accuracy
           no special pieces, it can be easily built without buying the set.

Nevertheless, I really like this set because it is my first StarWars one and made me collect this theme until today (and I don't think I will stop soon :tongue:  )

For the last picture, a small action with it (I only put two other sets with) :
"Are these the droid we are looking for ?"

I hope you enjoyed !

This is a very good review, and I cant find any major flaws. I also like the comparison new vs old.
Great little set, too.

Good first review. Perhaps you can join the academy. It would be a good idea to fix some of the mispellings you've made, but other than that, good job. :thumbup:

Thanks for the review  :thumbup:

I like your comparison between the two sets. What a difference in size!
