    Do we have a release date on this, looks awesome! I think I will need to hit the PAB wall and get more clear blocks for stands.

    The shuttle is nice. I'm not a fan of some of the updated minifigs though.

    Endor rebels - torso and legs must be used together, which is a shame as they cannot be mixed and matched with older ones for variety. One on the right - I wondered what was wrong with his face until I saw it is a beard. The very light printing looks a bit odd on a fleshie head.

    Leia - OK.

    Chewbacca - very nice, he's been needing an update for a long time.

    Han Solo - it's good they have tried to do his long coat (even if it does mean the legs and torso cannot be used independently), but they really need to up the density of print on these two piece minifigs, the coat changes colour at the waist. It's not as bad as Luke's white robes in other sets, but still not great.

    It would have been nice if TLG had extended the camouflage printing of his trench-coat on the sides of the Han Solo minifig. (somehow this makes me reminisce about my kenner action-figure Han Solo that came with a fully stitched up fabric trench-coat I played with as a little kid)

    I like Chewie and Leia the best of the minifigs included. Though I wish, even though it is too much to ask for, they would have put in an additional two or three empirial minifigs; an officer, one of those deathstar troopers in black with one of those open helmets to both put in the cockpit, and a stormtrooper. It is movie accurate, still somehow an imperial spaceship without minifigs from that empire to me feels like it is missing something.

    I was surprised to see that the interior of the main hull is designed so that you can nicely seat the minifigs and store their props. Is some cases the interior design of Lego Star Wars sets really lacks detail, or there is just no interior to speak of at all, not here. Very nice! But is it just me or does the hull seem a little too small, especially lengthwise, in comparison to the cockpit to the actual model from the film?!
    Still, just like the 'Final Dual' set, definitely not a bad Lego set at all.

    Thanks for posting. I'll probably be picking this one up at some point. LEGO seems to have really stepped up their game with OT sets lately.

    Maybe slightly too short, but not too far off.

    The interior is definitely a high point, and I also like Leia's face print (not sure if it's a new one or not). It could really have done with an Endor Luke though.

    Leia's cape is also interesting in that it goes over her head, rather than between the torso and neck as per usual.

    A Luke in Endor gear would have been nice too. I don't think we've ever had one?

    This is a 'must buy' set. Nice one lego!
    Now hurry up and build us the cloud city as this long wait is getting tedious now.  :(

    I have mixed feelings about this set. I like the design of the fuselage and the interior but the underside of the wings look awful and the cockpit is the wrong shape.

    I believe that the release date for this set in June 1 along with the rest of the early summer SW line. The episode 7 stuff is supposed to come out in September.

    Before we start seeing the whole video series reposted, one thread at a time, ;) I think it worth quickly mentioning (just for anyone who maybe isn't aware) that B0SSK isn't the actual author of TheBrickShow video series (as far as i know). So praise and 'likes' for these vids really belong to their youtube channel, to be fair, which can be found here (without the spaces):

    It's hard not to compare this to the UCS version of the IS, which is a work of Lego art IMO. It's a pretty good representation at the size it is, but you always feel that for a couple of £/$ more and maybe 80 more parts, it could have been a lot tidier. They have to draw a line somewhere I suppose.

    The new wookie figs are terrible! I don't know if the designers have ever actually looked at a picture of a wookie, because they certainly don't have extensive blonde highlights on the front...
  • CapnRex101CapnRex101 United KingdomAdministrator Posts: 2,291
    @monkeyhanger - Agreed. The back of the model looks great, with curved shaping just like that on #10221 but it was always going to be impossible to match the UCS set. For me the most frustrating issue is the loading ramp which is in completely the wrong place as that could easily have been done correctly.
  • VortexVortex Pakistan/USMember Posts: 342
    I suppose the fact that it is (at least from the video shots) comparable to the UCS , says much . The snot work on the fin , and a quick flash glance could actually have ppl confused if they are any different( strictly talking on video only)

    i do feel the that there is a lil ratio issue , the nose seems almost the same lent has the main body/passenger compartment.

    great touch though , the interior . 

    Love  this vessel so much, honestly can't have enough, despite owning two UCS versions. Simply elegant ,so clean.

    @BOSSK
    Well I definitely cannot speak for anyone else, outspoken as I am, but I also definitely did not assume you are one of those BrickShow geezers, just like I imagine most people won't.

    But seriously now!

    Don't these BrickShow guys post a link to all of their videos under the 'external review' tab under each respective Lego set entry on brickset.com , which you can also do for them if they did not already do this themselves.

    I agree with others (such as legomatt) who indicated that if you start a topic to evoke responses from others about their opinions on this set, and the other set 'The Final Dual' for which you also started a topic, I welcome, your own input about the set as well, instead of only embedding someone else's video review. That is the whole point of a forum that you can share your opinions etc. , which also may extend beyond 'I like this set, must buy!'.

    A title like 'new summer wave 1 SW sets, what is your opinion?' After which including video reviews may be an extra incentive to stimulate discussion, and prevent this petty nitpicking, which I did not think was your intention. (Sorry, if I now unintentionally have turned into some kind of pedantic prick myself by hinting at this.)

    Unless of course I was mistaken and you enjoy igniting virtual flame wars. In that case I happily poor some oil onto the fire too for you. ;)
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,404
    Well, I'll offer an on topic opinion.
    this was one of the sets that jumped out for me when details first broke and now we have seen it I haven't changed my opinion.

    it is one of the classic OT ships and the two previous system scale attempts at this have been just that, attempts. The UC set was very nice but compairing it to a system set is hardly fair.

    as a system set this shuttle hits the mark, the dimentions look spot on, the detailing appropriate and the overall shape is as good as you could hope for. I like the cockpit and the rear access panels and I think the rear aspect is pretty good, overall this is a lovely looking ship and then you move to the figures.

    all the figures look nice, personally I would like to have seen Han's coat be made out of cloth (I have a MOC version somewhere) but that was always going to be an unrealistic ask, so what we have is as good as we will ever get, and as it is an all new Han (not from Hoth) that is enough. The Chewi and Leia look great and it is nice to see the new Chewi in an OT set. I can't get too excited by the troopers but the more the merrier and these ones look good.

    i also like that the shuttle and final duel sets play out the final movements of ROTJ and seem a great way to sign off regular OT systems set production and bring in all the new SW sets based on Episode 7, the Anthologies and more, which I still think is what is going to happen.

    After a long hard look i do believe this ship can " Fly Casual"

    I think i too had a subconscious wish for the trench coat to be a cloth one. But still glad they finally did Endor Han at last.

    @B0SSK Yep, that's cool, don't worry about it. The intent of my post was purely to add a little clarity that was missing from the thread title/post, (adding just a smiley is a bit on the vague side of conversation starters, i think you'd agree). That's all. No biggie. :)

    That wasn't even clever.  Family Guy makes Hardware Wars look genius.

    I don't think think every show always needs to be clever  to be funny . Sometimes funny alone just works. I've not seen the recent seasons so can't comment but the early ones were very funny , and this particular 3 part episode "Blue Harvest" was a great ode to Star Wars OT.... Just IMHO though 


    If I recall , yes I have seen some very bleh / going no where episodes of Fam Guy but then the number of those would be multiplied times 3 for South Park and often with Simpsons too...

    just the nature of the beast I suppose

    One thing I'd like to not lose from @legomatt's original comments is that we're not going to need an individual thread for every Brick Show review.
  • B0SSKB0SSK In the PubMember Posts: 175

  • Sethro3Sethro3 United StatesMember Posts: 819
    That head on the Endor rebel is odd with the beard coloring.

    Leia looks fantastic. Han looks decent. The ship itself looks decent. I actually may have to consider this...granted there are far too many other sets I need.
