So, we can all agree that the LEGO ‘freemaker’ series is trash. However, they have used this series to do something amazing - and that is to make sets based on Expanded Universe ships.
Come on, tell me you don’t recognise this:
As the TIE Phantom! IN THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY BLUE!!! AAAARGH! AMAZING!
Sure, the figures are meh, if there is a cool droid design, but a TIE Phantom! As someone who is currently going about collecting the original blue LEGO TIE series (so far have the Interceptor and the original fighter on the way), this set is a must-have.
And thinking back, when they did the Yoda Chronicles, they did a similar thing with the E-wing starfighter:
Sure, the colour scheme was a mess, but it was an E-wing!
So, what do you guys all think about this use of EU ships, and are there any others that you’ve noticed LEGO in particular reusing (As opposed to Rebels with the T-wing and such)?
