Review of LEGO® Rebel U-Wing Fighter, Set 75155

Star Wars Rogue One LEGO Rebel U-Wing Fighter, Set 75155 /// We add new Star Wars fun on our blog every week! /// #starwars #rogueone #lego #minifig #uwing #review #starwarslego /// maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

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.

Some of you got your first glimpse of the Ghost in mid-2014 in the online game Star Wars Rebels: Ghost Raid.  I saw it for the first time in the fall when the TV series made it’s debut.  I was immediately drawn to the ship, as a character in itself.

We have many more beer drinkers than wine drinkers at our Star Wars parties. Yet we have always only had regular, “boring”, non-Star Wars beer.  Well, thanks to a post by Red 5 Mom and a few of our friends, this year, we finally had beer fit for a Star Wars Cantina.

This Pixel Monday post is a follow-up on last week’s post and pattern of Darth Vader:  today we have Vader’s TIE Advanced (TIE Fighter).  I always though it was very interesting that Vader did not simply stay in the safety of the Death Star or his Imperial Star Destroyer.  He got right in the action.   I love how different that makes him from Kylo Ren.

Poe Dameron is a flashy, spectacular pilot with a smile that can melt any glacier on Hoth.  So when we where trying to figure out a Poe-themed food for our Star Wars Party in a couple of weeks, we needed something that was worthy of his pizzazz.  A Po’boy might sound too humble, but I assure you it is anything but!
