As always, LEGO nails it and kids will love re- enacting scenes from the Star Wars films.
Really enjoyed building this. The clear technic brick stand looks a lot nicer than the older version. Stands up surprisingly well for how minimal and out of sight the stand is and looks pretty cool. The only complaint possible would be having some stickers instead of decals.
It's honestly not a very exciting set. It does what it does and it's okay, but there's nothing that's really standout about it. The Anakin and Padmé figures are fine but kind of boring (especially the Anakin one) and the 20th Anniversary commemorative Luke minifigure is probably the least interesting one out of all the commemorative minifigures. The build is okay but there's just not too much to do with it after you fly it around. The price is standard stuff but there's honestly not too much value that – as far as I see – can be enjoyed from here.
As a fan of podracers, this build did not disappoint. The best part about re-releases of Star Wars vehicles is that they benefit in terms of accuracy from the new parts issued. And even though sometimes they are subtle and minor changes, the outcome makes a huge difference. There are enough unique and new parts in this set to make it a refreshing build of a vehicle that's not been repeated very often over the theme's tenure. Over and above, both Anakin and Amidala are new prints which warrant a buy for minifigure collectors. For the rest of us, the exclusive classic Luke may be a good enough reason.
This is an incredibly enjoyable experience from start to finish, it's clear a lot of love and care has been put into this set. The finished Podracer not only has a great design but the clear Technic bars create a hovering look that allows it to look absolutely spot on when displayed. With the stand it balances on its own and fans can even use the bottom stand as a handle giving the Podracer a lot of swooshability.
The updated design looks a lot better than the simple looking one from 1999. The minifigures are updated as well and use the flesh tone heads and hands. Probably the main thing that people will will looking forward to is the exclusive Luke minifigure with the anniversary printing on the torso.
Podracers are interesting vehicles and 75258 Anakin's Podracer - 20th Anniversary Edition is certainly my favourite model of Anakin's craft. The mechanical detail on the engines is outstanding and I like the updated energy binders. Furthermore, the Technic frame provides ample support and includes a useful handle, taking inspiration from the 2011 set which was similarly constructed.
