My 7 year old loves this Lego
Overall I was very pleased with this set. The minifigures are incredibly detailed, and although they aren't any character in particular, their faces and helmet designs are some of the best I've seen. As for the speeder itself, the detail on it is top notch. It's not very big, but the overall design doesn't look bulky nor does it disappoint. The build itself was easy, it took me less than 2 hours to finish while casually building and watching tv. It would be a good set for a child, however there multiple very small pieces in this kit, so I recommend it only for an older child. I only have two gripes with the kit. The first is the pilot canopy. The canopy on this build is double hinged. There is a smaller canopy that fits onto the main canopy. When opening the pilot canopy it frequently pops off. It also doesn't move very smoothly. It allows for you to display with the canopy open, however it's not connected very well, so when you try to move it it always comes off. My second gripe is the point of the moisture vaporator. It seems pretty pointless to include it in this kit and in opinion inflates the price when it isn't needed. Overall i was extremely happy with the kit, and it will make a nice display piece.
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.
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.
