This is both my first set review and post about a Star Wars set- (even though I have been collecting them since '99). I got this one early this year so I thought I would post a review on it. Please bare with me- I am not a great photographer. So with that in mind, here goes!

The sticker sheet (I normally don't apply them, but for this I am going ahead and putting them on):

Minifigs- I really like the two AT-DP Pilots, but the best Agent Kallus really does shine. Of course we get an extra stormtrooper:

No new molds in this as far as I can tell, however these printed 4X4 domes are really great. I can see lots of uses for these in space MOCs.

Bag#1 Complete- Nothing earth shattering here- an easy build:

Extra pieces

The Verdict:

Minifigs- 5/5- We get a total of four figs. I like the two AT-DP Pilots and Agent Kallus is a well done minifig. I can complain about another storm trooper either

Parts- 3/5- Other than the dome pieces I commented on before, there is really not any new parts in this. If you build space, star wars, or machinery, this will still be a welcome assortment.

Experience of Build 4/5- This really was a fun build. It came together fast but was challenging enough for its target age group.

Playability 5/5- This thing is much more sturdy than it looks. The legs take a little bit of effort due to the double locking hinges but hold together very well.This is a very minor complaint.

Value 4/5- Typical- $49.99 for 500 pieces- I must admit I paid a little more than MSRP due to shipping but I can't complain about the value.

Overall: 21/25- I really believe this is one of the best walkers that Lego has designed. The only changes I would make would be adding real control panels in the cockpit and it would be nice if lego made a real widow to fit in with these types of builds rather than a transparent tile over another plate. All in all, I would recommend this set and I hope the rest of the 2015 Star Wars sets are on par with this.

Thanks for the early review! :classic: I don't know much about the rebals show at all, but I can say that the over all design of the walker really appeals to me and the minifigs look top notch. I also like how the spring shooters are pretty much hidden in the frame, nice job! :thumbup:

Looks really nice. One complaint is the back it is a pitty that Lego didn't use any plates greebling there.

Great review! Thanks for doing it. I'm a big fan of this set, the minifigures are good, as is the parts selection. I like the piece used in the cockpit to secure the minifigure in place. I would've liked to see some panels in the cockpit though rather than translucent red pieces, that said however they are useful pieces.

Pretty good first review! This looks pretty great, I probably won't be getting it due to budget constraints. (Bionicle) but still, very nice set. To me it kinda looks like the missing link between when the at-st evolved into the at-at. :shrug_oh_well:

Also, I know the rebels stormtroopers get a lot of hate, but I really like them. Thanks for the review! :thumbup:

Thanks for the review! I have two questions:

- What is the driver standing on, when the hatch is open and he is looking out?

- Could you show the face of Kallus without helmet, please?

My only complaint is that the colours of both, Kallus's and the drivers's uniforms are wrong. Kallus's uniform is way too dark and should be more dark olive than black, and the drivers's uniforms are too bright and should be more greyish compared to what we saw in the series.

Here are the pics of Kallus- His head would be good for a steam-punk character.

The driver isn't really standing on anything- he is just kind of wedged in there.

Whats behind the printed 4x4 dome? Is that 2x4 yellow plate? Im planning to replace that.

Yes there are several yellow accents on this- However, in person it looks really good.

Awesome! I am really looking forward to buy this, but is it really $50.00 US? I was hoping more around $30.00.

Also, I was wondering how the hip section for the legs work, does it have a stiff turning axis to it?

I mean, it fits the 10 cents per piece count and has 4 figures so for a licensed theme you can't beat that. But I guess Lego can never satisfy everyone

Thanks! Indeed his face printing is really nice, they captured his looks and spirit well.

Great set, really impressed.

Odd that Lego didn't include stickers for the controls - can't think of a reason they wouldn't have.

And why do only 3 of the 4 figures have leg printing? I just can't understand Lego at times

This is true. I just had that price in mind when I saw the first images of it. it did not appear to be this big or complex, but new sets are getting so much more advanced than what they used to be.

I built this set and I think the two rubber pieces holding the both sides of the face is a bit stretched out therefore making the set somewhat tight for entire top hatch to open and close. Does anyone have the same situation?

Is this right?

Never mind I got it! I built the back a stud too long!

Thanks for the early review!

How tall is this next to the most recent recreation of the AT-AT? I'm picturing the two of them standing next to each other looking silly due to the scale differences.

The legs are about 2" shorter than the AT-AT; its cockpit is a little larger than the AT-AT's "head;" it doesn't look out of place as an escort-type walker or heavy walker, especially as both are built in the same style, although if scale differences really bother you the most recent AT-ST is probably a better bet for you.

Great reveiw, shame on Lego for forgetting that they already made a AT-DP pilot helmet (Ezra's from the Phantom set) that didn't resort to needing a printed head.

Thanks for the review and pics. This is a really nice looking walker.

One question - how snug are the AT-DP drivers sitting in their seats? The cockpit looks good. Actually I'm not crazy about the AT-DP helmets on the show but I dig the minifigs! Good stuff. Awesome facial hair for Kallus!

It's a different helmet. Ezra's is an Imperial Cadet Helmet (the same one he wears in "Breaking Ranks).

I meant the mold opposed to the paint job.

hi,

i need some help...when i atach the pod to the place where the legs are placed, the small piece that unites the pod to the legs is loos from the bottom, so the top of the walker just moves around freely, wich is different from every video review that i have seen (where they can rotate the pod but its not loose)

the small piece that serves as the axis isnt staying locked on the bottom piece and i have reassembled it all and still its the same :\

help!

edit: sorry, i found out what went wrong...didnt push hard enough :D
