I've been out of the lego building game for quite a few years and am only just getting back into it again now. This was a fun build and shows how far the detail in the Star Wars sets and minifigs has come over the years. The R2 and 3PO have a very nice print on the body and the 3PO head is likewise impressive. The escape pod as a microship is what you would expect but it probably won't see much use from me as I transfer the R2 and 3PO over to the new'ish Sandcrawler set which oddly omitted them. The star of this set and what I suspect most buy it for is the dewback and it doesn't disappoint. It both looks like a dewback and at the same time captures that cute "chibi" look that you expect from this line. The articulation is well implemented. The sandtrooper is also a fantastic minifig with great printing, a wonderful helmet sculpt and a well designed backpack for the scale. I suspect if Lego had of released this as two separate items the dewback would sell in crazy numbers. I'd pick up a few more and army build but unfortunately as a two pack, this will be my only purchase. The price is probably fair given you get two microfighters. But as I really only wanted the dewback, I went back and forth over getting it. If it was in the $20AUD mark I'd probably grab another for a second dewback. Fingers crossed for a good sale.
75228 Escape Pod vs Dewback Microfighters is probably my favourite set from the whole Microfighters subtheme! I was looking forward to building the Dewback and it has certainly satisfied my expectations, capturing the lumbering gait of these creatures with remarkably accuracy. The escape pod is faithful to its source material too, although I can imagine its lack of weapons might lessen the play value.
The Dewback is definitely charming, and a refreshing take for a Microfighter set. The Escape Pod is not much of a fanfare, but the delightful Dewback makes up for it.
Never before has a set caused so much internal conflict. The escape pod is just horrible, an awful design and a building experience that will leave fans deflated, but the Dewback is an absolute pleasure to construct and looks utterly adorable. It is something that would not look out of place on a shelf with a larger LEGO Star Wars collection. The fact that half of this set is so delightful and half is so disappointing makes it hard to recommend and hard to disregard. Perhaps the best advice on this occasion is to wait for a sale – but at that point, be sure to buy it.
