Review: 7914 Mandalorian battlepack
Posted 18 December 2010 - 04:24 PM
price: I paid €15,00 (11.00 USD)
NOTE: This is my first review and I'm sorry if the pictures are blurry sometimes.
This is one of the new 2011 star wars sets. This set comes with 4 mandalorians.
the box is nothing special, just a regular battlepack box
the back shows a nice battle between the mandalorians, and the new clone battlepack
In the box came the instruction manual and to little bags
The manual is fold really bad
The part list
I think the grey piece is new, but I am not sure, ofcourse there are the new blaster pistols, and there is a nice clear brick, which I really like.
The comperison of the blasters, as you can see is the new pistol really nice, but I think it suits the mandos not good. It is a really good gun for han solo.
As you can see there are 4 identical madalorians, the have a really conewarsisch face which I really dont like. They come with jetpacks, and you can use arc gear on there helmet.

The brick built gun is really nice. It is a simple and effective design, and I think they are usefull in any army.
The speeder is really nice. It is a simple built, but it is usefull as a speeder, even a civilian speeder. I think the technick piece i the front is seposed to be a little machine gun
The cammando gun thing ( I dont know the name) is nice, it remends me of the ep3 clone battle pack, which had a simalr commando center in it. The gun is a bit to big though. The gun can rotate 360.

The spare parts: there is nothing special here.
As you can see, lego give us more guns then needed, because 1 mando is on the speeder, 1 mando is on the commandcenter, and 1 mando has the brick built gun, so there are 4 weapens left for 1 mando. Its really nice lego included more weapons.
my final thoughts:
built: 4/10 I think the built is really simple
pieces: 7/10 You get a couple of nice pieces
figs; 9/10 The could have include some variation in the figs, but for the same mandos is really good forr army building.
Price: 8/10 for 4 mandos and some nice pieces, I think it is really worth the price
Overal: 7/10 Its a good army builder set, but nothing really special.
This is my fist review, so comments are more then welcome.

As for the review, the pics could be a bit bigger, and you need better lighting

Parents may want to put Mando heads on the mantelpiece to keep their kids away form the fire .

Yeah I miss the cut-out helmets and black heads but I guess from now on it will mainly be printed visors.
Those heads are quite creepy and we get four of them!
I'm glad they all come with jet packs and this set really is all about army building.

The mandos I like the look of, but the faces are pretty hideous. The vehicle is nice and its cool that it can double as a civilian speeder, but the turret looks average in my opinion. They really could've added a bit more detail on it. I do like the brick built gun just because its something we dont see often and its nice to have a break from the specialized moulds.

Anyways, that's the reason I don't own a single new Mando- classic Boba, classic Jango, and a pair of concept Bobas satisfies me.

Im really disapointed in the face printing on these guys, Im thinking I'll just replace them with the rebel faces from this past years BP.
The mando gear and speeder and turret are all lovely, can't wait to get my hands on them!
