The Imperial Assault Hovertank is the smallest and least expensive of the LEGO® Star Wars: Rogue One Sets released in 2016. Boasting 385 pieces including 3 minifigures for $29.99 (US), is the set worth buying? Here are my thoughts.
A week and a half left, and I am still blissfully unaware! I have managed to stay away from the articles, videos, and posts about Rogue One, and I feel cautiously optimistic that I will enter the theater without too many preconceived notions.
Though this willful ignorance does create two problem when posting Rogue One patterns…
We are now armed with tickets for Rogue One! After much deliberation, we decided to go on Friday instead of Thursday. We really want the kids to see it with us the first time around (instead of the adults pre-screening, like we did with The Force Awakens), and it would just be too late for little guy to see it on a school night.
So the question then is, why do we think it is OK for our kids to see it without us checking first.
I am thrilled to announce that over the next few weeks, LEGO® “Master Builder” Peter Guenther will be back with new reviews! This time he is armed with the LEGO® Rogue One sets. The floor is all yours Peter…
I suppose it’s not too surprising that the 2016 LEGO® lineup for Rogue One only includes one Rebel set (versus four Imperial sets): it’s the story of a plucky band of insurgents against a galactic Empire, after all. Initial photos of the set including the box art left me cold; I found it unattractive and boxy and wasn’t sure it was an acceptable value, especially at $79.99(US) for 659 pieces. Out of the box, though, this set really surprised me; built, it’s bigger than I expected and has great detailing.
1 month left guys!! I know I promised 3 more Rebels patterns, but I just could not contain myself. I finished the Rogue One designs over the weekend, and I wanted to start sharing them with you guys as soon as possible! (For you Star Wars: Rebels fans, I promise we will get back to those in a couple of months or so.)
