Agent Hunt Reviews the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series A-Wing

Agent Hunt Reviews the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series A-Wing

Designed by Ralph McQuarrie for Return of the Jedi, the RZ1 A-Wing is faster than a TIE Interceptor, perfect for hit and run attacks or recon missions. Although its first appearance was in 1983 at the Battle of Endor, the fighter has been a regular in other media, especially later episodes of Star Wars Rebels.

The Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) Lego Star Wars sets are the pinnacle of design and engineering. Built as large scale display pieces, we’ve had X-Wings, TIE Fighters, Millenium Falcons, and many, many more. We’ve never had an A-Wing before though. At $200, this set is in the (relatively) cheaper end of the UCS scale compared to the £700 Imperial Star Destroyer or £800 Falcon. As such this was my first foray into the world of UCS.

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…

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