My 7 year old loves this Lego
I love the feel and look of the speeder. And when part the set out, I'll have a bunch of earth toned plates for my castle MOCs! The moisture-vaporator seems very unfinished as the base is just a plate and a couple slopes. I'd rather they add Stormtrooper and a small turret or some other kind of antagonist for the speeder to attack.
When I saw that the Sandspeeder was now for sale I rushed out to get it. I got one of the last one on the shelf! And this kit did not fail to impress me. The kit makes great use of sand colors with just enough darker colors to really make it pop. The set has two mini figures with each having two new face prints. The visors are also printed on the heads. They each have a blaster pistol. The helmets are very detailed with over a dozen new markings, I'm not sure if they are new rebel markings or something that is coming out in the new movie. They have prints on the front and back of the body as well as the legs, these also are new and very detailed. The main build is very well designed, it has two flick missiles under the front of the Sandspeeder and a rear flick gun that can turn 360. There are fins on each side that can be moved up to give it a appearance of turning. The cockpit has two new different computer prints (1x2) that are also very detailed. The mini figures fit in very well and firm so they don't fall out. The rear gunner has a very interesting way of fitting in, the legs go up under the rear computer. Both figures must be almost leaning back almost helmet to helmet so the canopy can close. The glass canopy is two parts, with the front larger part having a nice clean print on it. I was very glad to see this on this set. As before we had sets that have stickers to put on the canopys. As you know sometimes getting the sticker just right is a challenge on its own. With talking about stickers this set has three. One for each of the two fins on the wings and one on the front slope of the Sandspeeder. The second build that is in the set is a antenna or a "moisture evaporator". It has a very straight forward build and has great play with the moving parts that make it so you can "shoot" or knock it over. This will reveal a hiding spot under the rock where your can put the gray snake that is in the set. Extras; The set has only three extra parts in it, this is a tan 1x1 cheese slope, clear red round 1x1 and push pin for the flick gun. Positives; Great new mini figures, face and helmets. The Sandspeeder is also a very interesting take on the iconic "Snowspeeder" style. The cool snake as a little extra pop for the set. The new brick prints are very nice to have. It was very reasonably priced for brick count and mini figures. With all the different moving parts you will have great playing ability. This is a set that I will be buying two of because it is so well done. The only thing is I would give a warning when doing step 54 on page 46 and step 80 on page 63. This is where you attach the wings to the main body. Make sure you line up your parts (6015356) and parts (4211552) and push them in a little at a time so you don't pop off other parts on the main body. It is a very nice snug part that keeps the wings nice and tight on the main body. Negative. Finding any negative item on this set was very small because it is a great build. If I had to say anything is that the canopy is two parts and is held on the main body with only one line of studs that are four wide. When you open the canopy the parts sometimes come apart in this area. The canopy when closed has a very slight gap at the front because it does not attach to any studs. So over all I give this set a big thumbs up and a must have for Lego and Star Wars fans and a great set for anyone just starting to build Lego. Happy building to everyone and have a great Holiday season.
Indeed, in an era where we are perhaps a little sick of seeing LEGO snowspeeders, 75204 Sandspeeder is a refreshing take across the board on what is still – in spite of our jokes at how often we've built it – a classic, expert design. For the price, there is better value to be had in this set than in any of The Last Jedi's tie-in releases. A new LEGO Star Wars vehicle, just about canon, and a well-timed surprise for those perhaps suffering from sequel trilogy fatigue.
And that, friends, is the Sandspeeder set! What do I think of it as a whole? Not anything special, honestly. Minifigure selection is too small and rather unremarkable, build itself is redundant and could be better, playability is meh without Imperials, and the price is mediocre.
It's a Snowspeeder in tan. With fins. Now, I should stop the review right there because that's really all there is to this set. But I'm angry and let me tell you why: The set is just lazy and it's LEGO shoveling the same crap onto us.
75204 Sandspeeder remains an enigma. Kenner's unproduced Sandspeeder vehicle feels like an odd source from which to take inspiration and simply applying a new colour to an existing model, albeit with a few minor updates to the design, is somewhat disappointing. Moreover, the printed helmets which have appeared in the movies but have little relation to this set are a strange inclusion, although I am glad to add them to my Rebel Alliance collection.
Overall, the side view of the airspeeders shows how similar the two vehicles are. So is the Sandspeeder a simple recoloring? Not quite. While both are based on the T-47 airspeeder, the LEGO models have more differences under the skin than you'd expect.
