I managed to get a couple of the new 2012 mini's this week from Bricklink. I will start off with a review of the 30056 Mini Star Destroyer.
The bags have the new Darth Maul art like the boxes.
Bag contents. Not sure why they have to fold the instuctions quite so small.
The instructions. This is a very simple build.
Parts are not to bad, can you ever have enough gray wedge plates!
As I said the build is very simple.
The finished set is not bad at all. The main shape is pretty good and even the engine area is not too bad.
The engines have about all the detail you could expect at this scale. The shape is not quite right but again working at this scale you can not expect much more.
I think the bridge could have been a bit bigger. Maybe add a 1x1 tile between the two shield genarators.
The left over parts.
The whole set.
A nice mini (which I am a fan) with a good shape captured of the Star Destroyer. I hope these will end up in some kind of promo this year as I would like to grab a few more.
