There are barely any play features and for such an expensive set is insane
nice that lego finally did something from the prequels. seems like its been a long time. I was definitely happy to see these two kashyyyk sets, as the battle of kashyyyk is a super cool battle. I mean wookies are just awesome! this set was smaller than I thought it would be, but that's ok. the color scheme looks great and the missile racks work great and more importantly for a collector, look great too. the new battle droids are awesome, but its time for lego to give them movable legs. it puzzles me as to why yodas in this set though. he IS at the battle, but never actually fights. I think that these days lego is trying too hard to give us named characters. a great example would be the mtt. look at 7662 and then 75058. you buy the 2007 one, and you basically have your army in one set. it has 20 battle droids in total! that's what a set should be. the 2014 one only has 8 ! yoda definitely should have been replaced by another clone, wookie, or battle droid. besides, if someone really wanted yoda, hes been in three recent sets. also, im not sure about the new blaster color. it looks weird. this set is quite simple, but will be great for my new kashyyyk moc. could have had a better minifigure selection though. thumbs up if you want the lord of the rings sets released again.
Overall, this set just feels… boring to me. The build is alright but it's quite small which is a little disappointing as the in-universe bombers are pretty large. Furthermore, the gunship has pretty lame play features – an opening cockpit and basic shooting features. The minifigure selection is also weak – two rehashed 2013-14 era minifigures and two new battle droids doesn't really stand out, making for an uninteresting set overall.
This is certainly my favourite rendition of the craft but it does not seem considerably better than 75042 Droid Gunship from 2014. I like the new 'cockpit' module and the external detail is superb, although an updated design feels unnecessary so soon after the last version was released. In addition, the price of £54.99 or $49.99 is far too expensive. On that basis, I would recommend this set to those who missed its predecessor but only with a significant discount.
As an update it certainly ticks a lot of boxes and fans of the Clone Wars era will no doubt love the improvements made on its predecessor, but the £54.99 price tag and simplistic build might be enough to put off the more casual LEGO Star Wars fan.
