"Our time has come. For 300 years, we prepared. We grew stronger. While you rested in your cradle of power, believing your people were safe... and protected. You were trusted to lead the Republic—but you were deceived, as our powers over the dark side have blinded you. You assumed no force could challenge you...and now...finally...we have returned." ~Darth Malgus

And they all sell for different prices on Bricklink.
The helmet printing. like real world fighter pilots, they each have their own custom helmets.

I found the string-on-cardboard weird too..
I might grab this set after getting the Slave 1
and if the cad bane speeder is not so good.
BTW, I'm loving the fried chicken

Also, is it me or is Zev and Luke just seem like generic minifigs. What distinguishes Zev and Luke here? Makes it seem like the Hoth Battle pack with Zev was silly. If he's gonna' be here with his SnowSpeeder (makes sense) why was he at all in the Battle Pack? Why not just have another Hoth rebel instead.

If I had interest in a snowspeeder I would grab them off ebay.
@LegoDad42: You are hoping to get it for 25$? Look at the price tags again.
Even more interested in LEGO bricks & parts? Read Tim Johnson's (aka Caperberry) blog:

I Don't have a SnowSpeeder either so this should be a must set for me... though i really found it expensive... I would have preferred an improved Snowspeeder...

I like the set, but the price is horrible! I mean, look at the small size of this set, this should be for 30€ or so... 47€? No way!

Just wondering though, did TLG always wrap their strings around cardboard? I never saw that before.
$40 USD according to FBTB.

OVERPRICED I MEAN AWESOME!!!

Have you seen those people collecting 500 or more Stormtroopers? Either you like it or not.
Or let me say it differently: get an AT-AT and blast it to pieces with your squadron!
Back to topic: the speeder has gone through some strange design changes again - but is still not as "ok" as 4500 I think. I am really disappointed we didn't get the new "Hoth Officer" torso in the BP and TLC was throwing the 11 year old version in.. sigh. I guess I speak for some here that I don't need that cave and a stickered inferior Snowspeeder, but Luke and Wampa are nice. Either BL the whole bunch or wait for a 30€ish price. That's my thought about it in the moment.
What would have let me do a more positive decision: price, Tauntaun, better SS

Anyone have a side by side of all the snow speeders lego ever made?
Posted 05 May 2010 - 04:08 PM
I voted for
since this is imo a great set - but there are two cons which make it not outstanding:
-again Zev Scenesca (This character/minifigure is great, but TLG should either have included it in the BP or in this set - but not in both!)
-Snowspeeder would be not necessary, but is a good addition for playability
-great style of the cave
-finally a Wampa
-finally a Hoth Luke minifigure

And the wampa is white too. It's just a joke ^^
I am confused I know lego is not including any boba fetts in the sets this year it is a poly bag only
can you provide a picture of the boba and the bag please
I am not sure if your (its a joke) comment is what I think it is

I guess the only thing I'll be buying is the Slave-1, no matter how stupid the cost is.
I'm glad I'm just not that big of a SW LEGO fan.
