This set is a lot of fun to put together and play with. As with most Lego designs, when they come back they are improved. This one has the "new" launchers and guns for the snowspeeder. The color is grey vs. some orange, because it is first order vs. Old Empire style. It does include more details then the older models (except the UCS model, which is not very playable and much more expensive). The older models also were more brittle then this one. It will take an average Lego assembler 20-30 minutes to put together, but after that the true fun can start especially if you have an AT-AT walker. The Snowspeeder does come with a hook to rope up the AT-AT's legs. As a bonus, you get Lando as the 20th anniversary edition item. This one will likely be a valuable for the collector of minifigs.
I don't have a Snowspeeder from recent years. As such, I enjoyed the building process with this model, as well as the minifigures. The Lando minifigure is a great addition to the expanding collection of anniversary figures on my shelf.
Pros: It is swooshable...it displays well...EXACTLY like the 8 previous versions of this vehicle we have gotten on average every other year since Lego started Star Wars. So-So: It is an average value. Not good not bad. Cons: This set is purposely designed to be a remake of the original 7130 set...same figs...same cannon...same vehicle. That is exactly the problem. While I understand the 20 year throw back/nostalgia angle they are going for with most the 2019 sets this set in particular is just bad and unimaginative. 7130 was remade point for point in 4500 remade again point for point in 75049 and then again in this set...and a $20 set is NOW $40 and just isn't worth the price since most of us already have 7-8 of these. It isn't rare it isn't special and the "collectible" Lando figure feels like a gimmick to get us to spend $10 extra dollars on a set we already get on a regular basis. Everything about this set is tacky, bad PR and seen before...it is a really low blow Lego. Sorry but I can't get behind these sets. Your vendors are on to it too. Got this set within a week of release and it was 25% cheaper than your MSRP...not on sale either I might add. Sorry Lego this whole series of 20th anniversary sets is a poor decision in your marketing group. Overall don't buy it...I'd say to wait for a sale if you don't have one yet but lets be honest...every Lego Star Wars collector already has TONS of this set in one variation or another at WAY cheaper prices.
Overall, the LEGO Star Wars Snowspeeder – 20th Anniversary Edition (75259) is a decent set with a good selection of minifigures. The Snowspeeder is as accurate as it can get at this scale but there's still some room for improvement. The P-Tower turret is also a good addition. The exclusive Lando Calrissian minifigure is the main draw here as the original one was high sought after.
This remains an accurate model. It includes brilliant detail and closely resembles the vehicle from the movie, despite sharing many design features with past sets. The revised P-tower turret looks great too while the exclusive Lando Calrissian minifigure is outstanding so I would recommend the set to those who do not already own a LEGO Snowspeeder, particularly following a discount.
It's sleek, clever and perfectly sized, offering the perfect snapshot of a battle on Hoth, with a smartly-designed gun tower, three excellently designed and relevant minifigures, plus a bonus Lando Calrissian based on 2003's version that very few of us will have. For what is possible today from the LEGO Star Wars design team, and for what has come in the 20 years before, 75259 Snowspeeder – 20th Anniversary Edition represents strong build, play and financial value.
There are only so many ways that LEGO can re-hash a familiar build yet again and make something different out of it. Having said that, re-issues of the snowspeeder only means that folks who have missed out or have just started their adventures with Star Wars have a chance to own one at retail price. And it's no doubt that adult collectors would most certainly want this with the exclusive minifigure and box art.
