I build another Lego set last weekend. This was set #75173 Luke’s Landspeeder and it was a great build. It’s a classic part of the Star Wars movie series even and is a really distinct looking vehicle. And since it comes with a minifig of Luke, See Threepio, Obi-Wan and a Sand People person it’s just filled with Star Wars goodness!
It’s worth it for the characters alone!
It’s a quick and easy build, perfect for when you want something that you can start and finish in one sitting. And it’s pretty simply, I didn’t scratch my head a lot like some builds. All in all I give it 5 out of 5. I also recorded a speed build which you can find below.
I enjoy building Lego sets. Is that a weird hobby for a grown-up? I dunno, maybe. For me constructing Lego is relaxing and chill and calming. And when you finish you have a really cool model to display. Finished sets are decoration, unfinished sets are a fun thing to do on a Friday night.
My latest build was the Star Wars Rebel U-Wing Fighter set # 75155 from the movie Rogue One. This is a really cool looking model that looks great on my shelf. I liked this ship in the movie because it felt like the classic ship designs while still being something new and original. It won’t ever be as famous as the Millennium Falcon but it was home to the Rogue One crew for a little while.
The sliding doors on either side of the hull are pretty slick. Lego these days have so many well engineered moving pieces.
The cockpit opens and shuts and the set comes with this generic pilot guy.
The big ol’ engines on the back look very cool!
This might be the only way to get Lego Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor.
All in all it was fun to build and looks great on display. 5 of 5, would assemble again.
