So, after finding the four Rogue One 2017 sets in a Big W, here are the two battle packs and the Battle on Scarif!
See below the images for a quick review of each set!
The only older ones are the two battle-damaged stormtroopers from the battlefronts battle pack, which are the same as the new ones, just with weathering.
- Imperial Trooper Battle Pack:
Good Parts Pack
Walker is lame
Definitely worth picking up several, the Death Trooper helmet molds have to be some of the best LEGO has ever created, and it's a cheap way to build up an army of stormies, for those of us who don't want to have them all weathered in exactly the same way.
- Rebel Trooper Battle Pack:
A great one to pick up, with some new pieces and several very useful older ones, and two fantastic little builds, as well as four rebels, two with the Hoth-style helmets and two with the commando helmets.
- Battle on Scarif:
Loads of well-integrated play features
Accurately represents scene (sans main characters)
Two named characters don't really fit the scene, or each other
A little on the pricey side ($80)
I would still say it is worth picking up, with four exclusive minifigs and a fantastic display build, as we don't get enough locations in Star Wars.
So what do you guys think of the sets?
Do you plan on picking them up when they are available in January (Or March for those of us down here)?
