LEGO Star Wars Snow Speeder – 20th Anniversary Edition – A Review

LEGO Star Snow Speeder – 20th Anniversary Edition – A Review - Bag 4

On April 1st, Lego released five sets commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Lego Star Wars theme, each set came with a new version of an old set, as well as a limited edition minifigure presented in their original guise. These minifigs (Darth Vader, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian) are pretty much the main reason people will want to buy these sets as they each come with a commemorative stand and look pretty snazzy.

Here it is, the last of the five sets released in April, and it the set I was least looking forward to. Why? Speeders are cool…

Looking Back for Apollo 11’s 50th Anniversary Leads to Questions for Future Exploration

Earth Rising over the Moon from NASA Archive

I’ve always been enamored by the Space Program. I remember putting on a football helmet, backpack covered in tin foil, recreating Armstrong’s first steps on the moon for something, though I have no idea what and that was when I was 8 or 9?

I remember watching The Right Stuff and, what is quite possibly the best miniseries on the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo era of NASA Moonshot which was co-written by Deke Slayton and Al Shepherd.

Anakin’s Podracer is a set I wasn’t overly hyped about as I never had the original, but I am a completionist.

LEGO Star Wars Microfighters – Series Seven Review

LEGO Star Wars Microfighters – Series Seven MiniFigs

If you’re wondering why the diversion from the 20th Anniversary sets? Well, I don’t have the two of the sets yet, and the Slave 1, as beautiful as it, can’t stand up without additional support. I’ve ordered a custom stand so worry not. It’ll be here soon.

Microfighters divide opinion amongst fans of Lego Star Wars as their super-deformed style doesn’t appeal to everyone. On the whole, though, I’m a fan, and the kids love them. At less than ten bucks, Microfighters are relatively cheap and in recent years, have been an inexpensive way to get some decent mini-figures.
