Luke's Landspeeder

Ages 7-12

Price: #24.99 US
Hard to Find

Lego's description:
When he drove the old hermit Ben Kenobi into Mos Eisley spaceport, young farm boy Luke Skywalker had no idea that he would end up becoming a Jedi Knight and saving the galaxy. Recreate the moment the adventure began with this special-edition set, featuring an all-new landspeeder vehicle with a secret lightsaber compartment, a cast of droids and heroes, and a sandtrooper guard with a camera droid. Are these the droids he’s looking for? Includes Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, R2-D2, C-3PO and Sandtrooper with sentry droid.

My take:
The landspeeder is the ultimate classic set. Seeing as Lego has made it again, don't miss your chance. This set is totally worth the money. It has lots of cool pieces, amazing minifigures, and a great design. Overall, GET THIS SET! I found it at my local Walmart, but I think the landspeeder is becoming an online exclusive so you better pick one up if you find it!

Summary:

Pros:
-Great and rare minifigs
-Movie accurate
-Fun build

Cons:
-The compartment in the back can only hold the lightsabers when they are taken apart
-Could include another piece of scenery, like a barrel or something

Overall, I would definitely recommend getting this set!
Please rate and comment as this is my first set review! Thanks!

P.S. Thanks to the people over at Brick Olympics for giving me the set review catagory and giving me the perfect excuse to go out and buy this set! ;)

Not a jetpack, it is a "back" pack for gear and such.

Awesome review! and I'm really excited to see the new one stud sided brick (finally LEGO made one with just a stud on the side, the old ones with the indent on the side were a hassle to use sometimes)!
