A close look at the Sandtrooper & Sentry Droid
And the Rebel Alliance, we have Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3PO, and R2-D2.
Luke has printed legs, and TLG should have done the same for the Sandtrooper too. R2's dome is in grey instead of white, and the paintwork done on it, makes it more accurate this time round.
Here's the X-34 Landspeeder,
Compared to the earlier release, this newly design speeder certainly features unique detailing that's found on the actual prop.
Thoughtful this is, where TLG has included a storage compartment.
These aren't the droids that you are looking for...
All in all, if you've missed out on the previous release, this is a worthwhile set to get. Since it does come with a trooper, and a sentry droid to boot.
Now, all TLG needs is to release a re-designed cantina with more aliens...
Thanks for reading.
