I've been getting back into LEGOs, just to start a collection, especially the new and old sets that Disney is now releasing since taking over the Star Wars franchise. This was my first purchase to get back into it and I must say that I am quite pleased. After putting the kit together, the end product was a decent size and the resemblance to the actual speeder was pretty close. Now that my formal review is done... THIS SPEEDER LEGO SET IS SO AWESOME!! And Rey looks amazing, it comes with both her hair and her scavenger helmet/goggles. If you are a LEGO and Star Wars fan, then this is definitely a kit you must have!
LEGO did a good job replicating the vehicle seen in the trailer. There are a lot of SNOT techniques used to give the speeder the sleek look however there are some things that kind of bug me. There are some spots that still have studs exposed and it throws off the overall look a little including the ones on the side panels, top, and front of the speeder. Either way, I think the set is still a good pickup and it'll probably play an important part in the upcoming movie.
This set is really nice and a good way to start off your Force Awakens Lego collection. Albeit it's quite small it's design is good and you get two amazing minifigures. The build is quite easy and you get a good selection of parts in dark red which is a very movie accurate colour. The design is similar to the film but it would have been nice if Rey's scavenging net had been included. Also the stud shooters on the side are a fun addition but I think they detract from the overall shape of the speeder. If you turn the speeder on it's side then it's shape is actually quite similar to Luke's land speeder. There are some stickers to apply but they do add to the detail of the speeder. A fun feature is that when you twist the bottom engine, the side of the speeder opens, revealing a storage compartment inside. On the outside of the speeder are scavenging supplies for Rey - a blaster, a pair of binoculars and a saw. The two minifigures included are both movie accurate and the attention to detail in their printing is amazing! Rey comes in her simple Jakku outfit with her stick and shoulder bag. Rey's triple bun hairpiece is a new piece and is completely movie accurate. Her scavenging mask is just like the movie although it does seem a bit oversized. If you've seen the film then you'll know who Unkar's thug is and why he's included in this set. Again amazing detail and a gold crowbar is quite unusual. This set is really good and although it's small and not entirely movie accurate, I think it is worth having in any Force Awakens Lego collection.
There's a lot to like about it. It's not a great value, and it feels like the LEGO GROUP is testing the price points with this series. That said, this set won't break the bank, and looks a lot more iconic than any other Force Awakens set that isn't clearly based on Original Trilogy vehicles.
This small set brings the action of the movie home and lets fans recreate movie scenes or stage and play out original ideas. The small size also complements a large display and the Thug minifigure is great for adding to mob dioramas.
Ultimately, when it comes to value, this is a solid little set. $20 for 193 parts is pretty good, especially compared to pretty much the rest of the Force Awakens lineup. We also get Rey, and while she's not unique to this set (though her dust cover is), the only other set with her will run you $150.
If you're new to LEGO Star Wars, especially if you've been caught up in the hype generated by The Force Awakens, Rey's Speeder is an awesome gateway set into the world of LEGO Star Wars.
This is a great set to have and has nice minifigures. But it's not without flaws. [...] It should be round at the front, instead of being rectangular like the LEGO version is. Understandably this would have been hard to achieve, but MOC builders have been able to do so using mudguard pieces. In addition, Rey stores scavenged material in a net in the side of her speeder. The LEGO version uses clips, which have a look that is far too clean. It would have been great if they had used a net to cover up the scavenged material.

I love the Speeder design and Rey minifigure especially the new sand goggle. It is really a fine speeder which is well represented in a desert looking planet. However, the pricing really turns me off for the price per parts ratio and only two minifigures in this set. It is very disappointing to see the price at such a high note.
The small compact nature of this Speeder will make it instantly playable to children. I've already had my daughter running around making car noises as she played with it. However, the choice of the Unkur Thug minifigure, missing net feature from the movie and original price point makes this set rate more on the average side.
If you are looking to buy one of the new Star Wars sets but don't want to spend a great deal of money, this is certainly the set to go for. If you are instead planning to buy some of the larger sets, I still think this one is worthy of consideration as the speeder is excellent and no Jakku display will be complete without it.
The set certainly isn't perfect, but for both the figs and all that dark red in useful shapes, I think there's value for the money, and I certainly don't regret my purchase today. In fact, I'd ordered one online first thing in the morning before I went to lunch near a LEGO Store and picked one up, so the one that arrives on Sunday will be guiltlessly parted out.
I really like this build, and my introduction into the Force Awakens line of Lego builds. I'm already looking to see which other builds I want to add to my collection. I am loving the idea of collecting the Minifigs, at least, but sometimes it's cheaper to just get the builds that they go with instead of paying after-market for them.
I liked this model a lot. Maybe it will not be one of the most memorable, but it's excellently designed and very original. Rey is likely to be a key character in the movie, so collectors will be "forced" to buy this set, but i think non-hardcore starwars fan will be satisfied too.
Rey's Speeder is a lot like most good licensed sets: Though not perfectly screen accurate, it does a good job conveying the feel of it. Sure, it would have been more accurate if LEGO used a bike chassis so Rey would actually be riding it proper and not sitting atop it, but, hey, at the end of the day, it works.
