And definitely the best pilot @KungFuKenny!
but when I looked at it again today, it’s priced at €109,99
what’s happening with this?
The snow speeder had some really decent details for its size and era, but it's really small and the detail is definitely better on more recent models. I'm also partial to the hilariously crude printed Han in carbonite brick! (Of course the molded version is FAR better, but the printed brick is just so funny looking it's great!)
”Save your [Republic Gunship] for another day”...
Also, LEGO has used vague and obtuse set naming, rather than 'proper' names. Not all Mandalorian fans may know Slave 1.
Gideon's ship isn't named 'Gideon's Ship' or whatever name I'm certain it has. Or that nonsense with the Razor Crest having potential IP infringement, so some sets being named 'Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport'.
Anyway, they could give it the Razor Crest treatment in the Book of Boba and get him a new, more friendly-named ship we can all run out and purchase...
I don’t really care because I’m pretty sure no one on screen in films or tv ever calls it ‘The Slave I’, it’s only accompanying literature.
It would be a nice little reference though if the Book of Boba Fett series gave a nod to it i.e:
Shand: “How have you managed to keep the Slave I running so long?”
Boba: “I no longer use that name for my ship. I leave slavery for the Zygerrians. *spits*”
"Vader! How's my favorite Sith? Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, just slow down. Huh? What do you mean 'they blew up the Death Star?' Oh! [slams fists on his desk] ...Who's 'they'?! What the hell is an Aluminum Falcon ?!
There is some speculation that Jango was a slave before becoming a bounty hunter
Those exist in my version of the cannon, and the ST does not.
In general, "Boba Fett's Starship" is probably a more likely purchase as a gift from a non-SW fan to a SW fan than "Slave I", so it makes sense to shift branding to that, even if the ship will still be canonically "Slave I".
That Obi/Vader updated fight is absolutely canon in my mind, moreso than the flying R2 or suicidal manatee nursing Luke. :o)
(Fun note - my six year-old son at the time said: 'Why don't they just walk around? This is dumb.')
How about now?
The box and instructions have a mistake that Lego has already said will be fixed in later production runs: The box and instructions have the Imperial emblem rather than the Republic one.
If you want the version with the error, get it sooner than later. If you want the version with the correct emblem, wait a while.
