  1. Today I present to you all my thoughts on 75173 Luke's Landspeeder! Photos are from brickset.com. Remakes, remakes, remakes. This is a remake of the 2014 Mos Eisley Cantina's Landspeeder, and they look really similar, minus some minor aesthetic changes. The newer one is on the left and the older one is on the right. Perhaps only the addition of macaroni tiles and dark red astromech heads are the differences visible at first glance. You get 4 minifigures: Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi, C-3PO, and a Tusken Raider. These have all appeared before. Oh, more remakes! Luke previously came in the Death Star, Obi-Wan in the Mos Eisley Cantina and the Death Star, C-3PO in the Droid Escape Pod and the Death Star, and the Tusken Raider in the Skyhopper. Luke looks good, getting the balance between simple and detailed just right, in my opinion. Ben is mediocre. His hair is rather plain and the leg printing is pretty bad. C-3PO is a good minifigure, but really needs dual-moulding for his right leg. The Tusken Raider is a good minifigure as always, but the head might be just a little oversized. Here is the landspeeder. All hail the glorious macaroni tiles on the front! The engines look good with the addition of the dark red droid heads too. Engine detailing relies on stickers wrapped all around. I like the tubes on the front, but that is an old technique. There is seating for two plus space for Threepio at the back near the central engine, which can be lifted up to reveal a hidden storage area. All in all, I think this is a good-looking set, but it largely rides on the success of the previous Landspeeder. This does have minor aesthetic changes which do help it to look better, but remaking a speeder in just 3 years and not changing much isn't that great. If they couldn't find much to improve, they should've waited a couple more years before rereleasing it. Also, at 149 pieces, the value is worse than other $24.99 sets. Verdict? Get it if you don't have the 2014 Landspeeder AND if it is on discount. I probably won't be getting this, considering I'm going to get 75159.
