Scarecrow Fearful Face-Off
" Scarecrow Fearful Face-Off is the smallest set from the summer wave of Lego Batman Movie sets. It contains a whopping 141 pieces, 2 minifigures and retails for $16.99 CAD.
Minifigs:
1. Batman: The Batman figure is different from the other Batman Movie Batman's because of the lack of a utility belt piece. This is so that the black wings can be attached securely. Other than the different torso print the figure is similar to the other figures. Batman comes with a small jetpack build attaching the torpedo pieces to the back of the glider. The glider piece was exclusive to the 2013's Arkham Asylum so its nice to get it in a cheap set. For an enhanced effect, flame pieces are added.
2. Scarecrow: The figure is different from the one in the Special Delivery set due to the new hat and torso design. The hat and hair combo is from the series 14 witch and is dual molded in dark brown and pale yellow with a patch print. The face is very intimidating and suits Scarecrow. I particularly like the face with his mouth exposed. The torso design features a simple brown coat with some exposed straw. There is some more patch printing on either arm. The legs are impressive as well using sand blue as the base colour. The legs have more brown printing as well as the rope continuation and some boot detailing.
Build:
1. Gyrocopter: The copter is a wacky build very suited to Scarecrow. It features a disproportionate horizontal stabilizer with a huge central propeller. The stabilizer has a graffiti design of a pumpkin on both sides which is an excellent detail. There are two broomsticks used to keep the copter airbound. On either side attached via brown stud guns are two massive fear bombs. These have a orange head inside. There is a comfy seat for Scarecrow to sit and pilot the vehicle.
2. Mini Power Plant: The power plant is a fun little build intended to be placed among the other power plant builds from the Batman Movie sets. It features a small slot to place one of the aforementioned fear bombs inside and a small simple exploding feature will occur blasting the power plant. A fun feature that will delight kids for sure!
Overall:
This set is perfect. Cheap, good minifigs and a decent build is the perfect package. I bought it on a sale but would not hesitate to buy it at full price and I recommend that you do too!

Krennic's Imperial Shuttle
" Lego Star Wars: Krennic's Imperial Shuttle is the largest set from the Rogue One sets. It costs $120 CAD, has 863 pieces and contains 6 figures all of which are exclusive.
Minifigures:
1. Director Krennic: The figure has a rare recolour of the neat hairpiece, appearing a dark tan colour. The face is very reminiscent of the actor and captures the general look impressively. I was disappointed to find that Krennic only has a one-sided face given his importance and exclusivity. His cape is the new spongy fabric material appearing for the first time in white. He is equipped with a silver blaster. His torso is nicely detailed and has the rank insignia as well.
2. K-2SO: The figure is fantastic! The upper body and the head are fused together and contain tremendous amount of detail down to the Imperial logo printed on each arm. He is taller than the normal minifigure which is a nice attention to detail. He comes with some minor printing on the chest representing the circuits in his body.
3. and 4. Imperial Death Troopers (x2): The Death Troopers are the newest addition to the Imperial army. The helmet is exceptionally molded with a small receptor at one end. There is a silver print on the nose and two small green receptors underneath the helmet. The torso and leg printing are equally detailed. The torso has an array of grenades strapped to the suit. Each of the Trooper comes with a black pauldron that goes over the shoulder. Each Trooper is also armed with a black blaster.
5. Pao: The new rebel comes with an exclusive mold for his hat which is molded in tan and nougat colour. His face is very expressive featuring a gruff side and an open-mouthed side. The torso and legs are nicely detailed with some jacket detailing on the torso and simple pants printing on the legs. He comes with a backpack build which has a small antennae possibly to connect with the Rebel base.
6. Bodhi Rook: The last Rebel in the set is a nice figure to add to the Star Wars collection. The face has been printed with goggles one side and a jovial expression on the other. The torso detailing is simple but effective with a simple grey shirt under a brown jacket. Like Pao, Bodhi comes with a backpack although his is less complex.
Build:
The Shuttle is one impressive model. It is very dominant and intimidating. The black colour scheme IMO looks better compared to last year's Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle. The geometric build of the Shuttle is very hard to recreate given the nature of Lego bricks and I applaud the designer because the result is beyond awesome.
The front is built using sloped plates to create an A. The entire assembly can be hinged forward or backwards. Inside is a small ramp which can be lowered to allow figures to come inside.
The sides are built using more of the angled triangular plates creating a sharp parallelogram. Each of the sides can hinge forward to allow access inside.
Joining the three segments, sides and the front, is a small canopy piece with an exclusive print. Lifitng the canopy reveals a space for Krennic to sit and pilot the Shuttle.
The interior is very messy due to the somewhat haphazard arrangement of different coloured pieces. However, there are two sets on either side of the ship for the Death Troopers. Krennic's seat is very regal and has a throne-like appearance. On either side of Krennic's seat are stairs and stickers are used to provide some more detail.
The vertical fin is very sturdy in its construction and features a red light at the top giving a very menacing look.
The back is hinged just like the side and can be lifted open to reveal four clips to hold blasters. The back has twin engine detailing using 1x4 translucent tiles. The effect is very pleasing to the eye.
The wings like the rest of the build are very sturdy and the wingspan is huge! They are connected via 2 ball joints which give the wings the ability to be raised and lowered recreating Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle look and also the form seen in Rogue One where the wings are folded down completely forming a triangle. The wings feature two red lights on either side. Underneath each wing is a missile shooter.
Overall:
The build is incredible and just like the previous Shuttles is huge! The wingspan is incredible and the complex triangular shape has been recreated perfectly. Moreover the minifigures complement the set however one more figure would have been appreciated.
I picked this set at 50% off which I felt was justified but this set is awesome even at regular price because it feels like a bolder version of last year's Shuttle albeit at a cheaper price!

Darth Vader's Transformation
" Darth Vader’s Transformation is one of the many sets released in the Summer 2017 wave. It retails for a surprising $29.99, has 282 pieces and three minifigures.
Minifigures:
1. Darth Vader: This figure is identical to the 2016’s Death Star set. The figure has the new two-piece helmet mold which is very accurate. The face underneath is Anakin’s burned face after his duel on Mustafar. This version is when Darth Vader recently becomes a Sith lord so the face is very fitting. The cape is the soft, spongy material. The torso is very detailed but features no back printing which is a shame. The torso and legs are identical to 2014’s Imperial Star Destroyer. Darth Vader comes with the trademark red lightsaber.
2. Darth Sidious/Emperor Palpatine: Like Vader, this figure is identical to 2016’s Death Star set. The face is very accurate in the tan colour scheme and features a serious side and a grinning side which looks very malevolent. The torso and legs detailing is simple but effective with simple robe and hood detailing. Emperor Palpatine comes with a red lightsaber with a gold hilt.
3. Burned Anakin Skywalker: This figure is unique to this set and builds on the previous two versions. The face features a neutral expression but has many cuts on the front and back. The torso displays his ripped robes exposing his body which has many cuts and gashes. The left arm is flesh while the right arm is black exposing even more damage that Anakin took. The legs are done in pearl silver which looks marvelous and have more ripped robes detailing as well as minor cuts and gashes exposed here and there.
Build:
The build features the area where Darth Vader was created. It uses numerous A plates to create an octagonal platform which looks good. White 2x2 wing plates are used to represent bursts of light as well as 1x1 translucent white studs. On two opposite platforms are 2x2 jumper plates used to hold the droid and a lightsaber rack.
The droid is very accurately build using a technic wheel in red as the eye. The centre has an octagonal plate with clips on all sides to hold many different accessories including a blood bottle. The shape and height of the droid has been captured successfully.
The opposite side contains a rack to hold Vader’s and Palpatine’s lightsabers. Also, there is a spot to hold another droid. This droid is attached to a translucent rod showing that its hovering in place. Both things can be popped off using a technic mechanism underneath.
One side of the platform has a small technic assembly to hold Vader’s helmet. There are two rubber technic pieces used to hold the helmet between them and then the entire assembly can be pushed forward to attach the helmet on Vader. This trick was employed in Palpatine’s Shuttle and is nicely integrated once again.
The other side is where the Transformation occurs. There is small technic frame build like the one in Carbon-Freezing Chamber from last year. The mechanism has a small knob at the front where when you twist it, will change Anakin into Vader. It works well and is very fun to play with.
Another feature is a small droid. This one was unique in the movie because it had three legs. The droid has been very accurately rendered into Lego form. It uses a new colour for the stud in pearl dark grey which I like a lot. The build is simple but very effective.
Overall:
This set is fantastic! The play features work well, make sense and are very fun to play with. The figures are high desirable especially Vader and Palpatine who have not featured in a cheap set for over a decade. The price-to-piece ratio is very good as well with 282 parts! Buy this set at full price and you will not regret it. At a sale, it’s even better!

Spiderman Homecoming: Beware the Vulture
" Beware the Vulture is the second set in the Spiderman Homecoming 2017 sets line. It contains 4 minifigures, 2 builds, contains 375 pieces and retails for $49.99 CAD.
Minifigures:
1. Spiderman: This variant is exclusive to the Homecoming sets line. It shares similarities with last years Tanker Truck Takedown Spiderman to the extent that the head and legs are exactly the same. The head features sleeker eyes with silver lining. The torso has a black spider and is lined with web shooter fluids on the sides. The arms contain printing as well. The legs are dual molded and contain some subtle black printing. Overall the figure is the best version of Spiderman yet. He comes with 2 white power blasts, new piece as of 2017, a web piece and a white rope.
2. Iron Man: This set comes with the exclusive Mark 47 armour. It features shiny, chrome silver printing over the dark red body. The legs have the chrome printing but would have benefitted from dual molding. Surprisingly, under the helmet is a trans-blue minifigure head with no printing rather than the Tony Stark head.
3. The Vulture: The Vulture comes resuses the classic Iron Man helmet in dark green with exceptional printing. The eyes are done in bright green and the helmet has the breathing apparatus printing. The face underneath is the same one that was used for the 2016's Vulture which features a stern face with some liver spots printing. The torso features a black coat with fur lining. At the back of the torso is the clear neck bracket used to mount to the glider.
4. Shocker: Shocker is the most simplest figure out of all the four figs. The head is a reuse from the 2016 First Order Battlepack's Officer. The torso is printed with a hoodie design with yellow arms containing criss-cross printing. The arms look cool and the torso overall is splendid. Shocker comes with 2 silver fists first introduced with the Legends of Chima line.
Build:
Glider: The Vulture's Glider is a very organic structure and Lego designer has captured the shapes to a certain degree. The build is very geometric and symmetrical. There is a spot to attach the Vulture via the backpack piece. On either side are 4 of the pentagonal plates attached to create a cool design. On either ends are 4 feathers represented through 1x tiles in dark green. Each feather can be altered to create a flying look. Equipped on the Glider are two stud shooters which can be detached for further play
Rotating the Glider around reveals two sticker to provide some further detailing. There are also 2 fans which are attached via the small Mixels joints so they can be posed in different ways. The fans lack the spinning turbine but are good nonetheless.
Van: The white van is a 8 studs wide design which is representing a modern GMC van. The design is accurate is a bit bland. The front has a simple design with 2 lights and a grille. There are a lot of stickers that are supposed to be applied which is Lego's way of covering up for the blandness. IMO the design is generic enough to be used for many different purposes. The hood has a sticker showing damage. The side mirrors are attached through a cool technique. The inside is very simple with just a steering wheel.
The back is where it gets interesting. A lot of the curved 2x2 slopes are used to provide a curved frame. The side panels open up to reveal a gigantic 6-stud shooter. The inside also contains two crates with DODC-stickered lids. One of the crates contains an techno egg. Otherwise the inside is tiled with 2x2 tan plates. The back is build using a 6x4 plate with hinges and has a very nice 2x4 sticker. The back looks unfinished with the exposed colours clearly visible. On either side of the panels on the inside is a clip to attack two parts of a weapon.
Final Verdict:
This is set is good for getting all the main characters. The builds are okay especially the glider but the van is disappointing. The blandness is okay but the excessive amount of stickers is frustrating especially on pieces like the windscreen. The opening feature is okay. Overall the price IMHO is a bit too much. Instead of $50 CAD, it should have been $45. I bought it at a 20% sale which is what I would recommend you do too,
Thanks for reading my review!

Justice League: Battle of Atlantis Set
" The Battle of Atlantis set is the smallest of the three Justice League sets. It has 197 parts, contains 4 minifigures and retails for $24.99 CAD.
Minifigures:
1. Aquaman: The Jason Momoa Aquaman is a fanatastic figure to obtain. He has a new hairpiece which is very nicely textured and has white printing on the front. The face resembles Momoa and every detail is captured perfectly down to his eyebrows. One side has a stern expression but the other side has white pupils and a screaming or angry expression. The torso is gold coloured and has copper and reflective gold printing. It is also very intricately printed and has his trademark A belt. The legs are dark green and have some gold printing as well. Aquaman is armed with a trident in an exclusive p
pearl dark grey colour.
2. and 3. Atlantean Guards: The guards are IMO better than Aquaman. They have a new mold for their helmet which has scales molded on its side. The faces underneath are also a surprise: Anakin Skywalker and Legolas's faces. The torso detailing is similar to Aquaman's but has abs and armour detailing. The legs continue the armour detailing down to the toe. Each guard is armed with a harpoon gun in white with 2 cones attached to form a powerful gun.
4. Parademon: The parademon has the orangish yellow and dark blue colour scheme. The face has huge red eyes and an angry expression. The back of the head has blue flesh peeking through. The torso is printed in orangish yellow but has light yellow detailing. Its chest is exposed revealing his ribs which is done in blue as well. The legs are dark blue and have more flesh exposed as well. The demon comes with 2 sets of wings similar to Hawkman from 2015. Its armed with a simple black stud shooter.
Build:
The build consists of possibly an entrance to Atlantis. There is a central entrance flanked by two arches and two pillars on either side which are stickered. On top of the arch are two of the Nexo Knights pointed pieces forming a triangular dome. The pieces are in an exclusive trans-light blue and dark pearl grey colours. Behind the dome is an area to store the Motherbox.
On either side of the arch are two smaller pillars which can be knocked over. There are also spots to place the guards on either of the smaller pillars. A few stickers are used to provide some additional details on the pillars. Green algae pieces are used to give an underwater effect. Peppered through the builds are 1x1 glow-in-the-dark studs.
Additionally, a very small base is created out of sand green parts to hold the Motherbox. The build for the box is simple but has a 2x2 exclusive printed tile.
Overall:
The set is perfect for the minifigures but the build is very lacking. Perhaps another copy of the set could complete the build. 3 exclusive figures for a $25 set is not bad. I enjoy the new Aquman and am glad that he made an appearance in an inexpensive set. The set is not without flaws but is inarguably the best out of the three sets for its price and figures.

The Chrome Captain
" First Order Transporter is the third largest set from the inital wave of Force Awakens. It retails for $109.86 CAD, has 729 pcs and 7 figures.
Build:
The build was a fun and overall enjoyable experience. The front has lights on either side and a small one on top. The front ramp opens to reveal the interior and two hydraulic hoses. On top there are two missile shooters as well as two stud shooters. The whole top assembly can be lifted to gain access to the interior. There is enough space to store all the 5 First Order figures included. Also there are 4 clips to hold the accessories.
The top has a control station which can be accessed by lifting a panel on the back of the station. There is a small tray which can be slid out and a figure can be placed. On the other side is a small hatch. A figure can be placed under the hatch. On one side of the vehicle is a knob which can be turned to raise the seated figure, opening the hatch, who can then control the stud shooters.
The sides have very nice greebling done with the use of wing pieces. There is also twin engines located underneath the vehicle with the help of small wheel axles. The back has 4 engines angled at 45 degrees which look cool and intimidating. The only downside is that underneath, a plethora of technic studs are visible. At the back is a small technic piece to pull out dropping the ramp at the front. Underneath the structure are 4 transparent wheels which allow the vehicle to hover and move easily.
Minifigures:
1. Captain Phasma: This figure is awesome! The print detailing is similar to the First Order Stormtrooper except Phasma has flat silver colour and silver lines around the helmet and torso. The figure comes with an exclusive cape cutout in dark red with a red border. The figure does not come with a printed head but a plain black head pc.
2. and 3. First Order Flametrooper: The figure comes with a sleek head mold which has crisp printing around the edges. There are 2 small tubes at the front allowing them to breath during a fire.
4. and 5. First Order Stormtrooper: The figure comes with a new helmet with crips printing just like the Flametrooper. It comes with a simple blaster.
6. Female Rebel Soldier: The figure is cool and comes with an exclusive torso piece consisting of pouches and a bandoleer. She comes with a new pearl dark grey blaster.
7. Male Rebel Soldier: The figure is a nice addition presumably a captain in the Resistance. He comes with a tan torso which has twin rows of pouches on either side. He also comes with pearl dark grey blaster
Overall:
I bought this at a fantastic price: 70% off retail because of clearance and it came to $37! This price is fantastic to get the awesome Captain Phasma figure. The build is okay and the figures are fine but Phasma is the real standout for me.

The Quadjumper
" Jakku Quadjumper is a vehicle that had only seconds of screentime but made its debut in Lego finally. The set has 4 figures + BB8, 457 parts and retails for $64.99 CAD.
Build:
The build is beautiful once its built. It uses silver and nougat coloured parts and the colours look really good on display. The front cockpit opens to seat two figures. On either side are 4 engine assemblies which are assembled in a repetitive manner. The build becomes a bit tedious though. The lower two engines have stud shooters as well as a blaster and a few stickers. The front also has a small light under the cockpit.
In the movie, the vehicle gets blown apart by a TIE and that effect can be recreated in Lego. On the top is conspicuous grey technic ball which when pushed down, releases the top engines on either side. The effect is cool.
On the back there is another section to place a figure. The back opens to reveal a stud shooter gun which can flipped forward. There is a clip for a blaster and a thermal detonator. There is place in the back to seat a figure or BB8.
Minifigures:
Rey, Finn and BB8 are available in other sets and are unchanged.
Unkar's Brute: The figure is really cool and was available in the DK Chornicles of the Force book. He comes with a black sci-fi gun seen in Galaxy Squad. The figure has potential to be reused elsewhere like the Super Heroes line.
First Order Stormtrooper: The figure is a nice addition and this is the same one as the May the 4th promotion. Its a bit disappointing but a nice addition nonetheless.
Overall: I personally bought it for the figures. This is the cheapest way to get the main protagonists including BB8. The other two figs were promotions and I did not get the DK book or the May the 4th promotion so I was happy to get it. The build is fantastic. I bought it at $40 CAD, at 45% off which I felt was the price it deserved. The figs are not exclusive but the build is good and looks awesome on display next to my Millenium Falcon. "

Do you speed? You will!
" Kryptonite Interception is one of the three sets released for Batman v Superman movie. It has 3 figures, 3 builds, and 306 parts.
Builds:
1. Batmobile: This is my favorite Batmobile ever made by LEGO. The actual car is an extremely complicated model and the designers have done a fantastic job replicating it in Lego. The entire model is very sturdy. The front has two stud shooters as well as twin cannons on either side. The front two tires are smaller than the back giving the whole vehicle a sleek, low-profile look. There is a pentagonal tile used with a sticker to show the Batsign in dark grey.
The most interesting piece is the canopy which includes two new pieces. The pcs are done in black with tinted curved windows that are very stylized but also accurate. The sides have some greebling which is reminiscent of the 1989 Batmobile. The top of the canopy has hinged plates to create the A design and contains the airbrakes. The inside of the canopy is bare consisting of two 1x4 tiles with stickers. The back is simple as well. The back tires have wings attached to them which is similar to the Tumbler.
2. Lexcorp Forklift: The design is pretty basic but includes a small play feature. The colour scheme is new and looks good on display. The sides have 1x4 stickers saying Lexcorp which are handy for MOCs. The back has a small lever which when activated destroys the back section and sends the henchman flying. Its a fun feature which appears in other sets as well.
3. Kryptonite Canisters: The build consists of a 6x4 brown plate which contains 3 Kryptonite Canisters. There is a black bowl piece which contains a Kryptonite stone and is covered by a transparent dome. The build is simple but effective. The forklift can be used to life the entire assembly.
Minifigures:
1. Batman: The version appears in two sets. The head and cowl and cape are the same as 2015's Batman but the torso is new. There is the new stretched Batsign as well as the dull gold utility belt. The torso has really cool speck of silver which look fantastic. The legs are dual molded which is nice to get in a cheap set.
Batman comes with 2 silver batarangs
2. and 3. Henchmen 1 and 2: Both henchmens share an exclusive torso. Its a dark green Lexcorp jacket with an ID tag at the front and the name LEXCORP written at the back similar to the stickers on the forklift. Aside from that all the other parts appear elsewhere.
Overall:
The set is fantastic. The minifigure selection is a bit dull with only 1 named character but the builds especially the Batmobile is awesome. I bought it for $30 CAD at 33% off MSRP which I felt was justified. At full price the set is not worth it because of the lame figures.

4 Bounty Hunters in 1??!!!!
" Lego have currently one bounty hunter in existence and that is Boba Fett. There were many sets in the past which gave fans many different bounty hunters but as of 2016 there was only Boba Fett. As of Summer 2017, Bounty Hunter Battle Pack was released for ravenous fans to acquire 4 bounty hunters under $20! In the past, the bounty hunters included have been scattered across different sets which makes them even more expensive to obtain.
The set comes with 4 minifigures, the usual for a Battle Pack and one build.
Set:
The build is a speeder bike which has a very unique and cool design. The striking dark azure splashes make the model very attractive. The front has two engine pods reminiscent of a pod racer. There is seating for one figure. The sides have two stud shooters as well as dual cannons providing the vehicle with a lot of firepower. On the back there is an exhaust outlet along with a brown backpack.
Minifigures:
4 - LOM: The newest addition to the bounty hunter lineup. The head is a fantastic mold done in flat silver with copper used for the eyes. The eyes are covered with minuscule dark grey patches. The torso and legs are done in pearl dark grey with orange highlights. The torso print is very reminiscent of C-3P0.
Bossk: His last appearance was in the Super Star Destroyer which is now a very expensive set so getting him in a cheap set is fabulous! The head mold is done in olive green, a very accurate colour, with teeth detail. The torso and legs are done in bright light yellow which is, imo, a cool and a rare colour. The details on the torso are cool but the legs finally have printing including the claw detail at his foot.
Dengar: He is the same version that appeared in the Eclipse Fighter but I was reluctant to buy the set due to the price point and the non-canon theme of the Freemaker Adventures. The figure reuses the bandaged headgear as seen on the Clumsy Guy from Series 15. The face is similar to the last version but very detailed. The torso print is fine but the legs could use some print as well. He comes with a small build on his back to represent a backpack.
IG-88: In a world of human assassins, who needs a droid anyways? However, this figure appeared like Bossk in the Super Star Destroyer which is a very expensive set so its nice to get in a cheaper set. The face print on 1x1 cylinder piece is new and exclusive and the rest are just common parts. All figures come with the usual stud shooter guns but IG-88 also comes with a rifle which is surprising.
Overall:
This is one of the best Battle Packs Lego has ever made. The figures are fantastic and this is the cheapest way to get any bounty hunter aside from the keychains. My only gripe would be that Lego should have included blasters and/or rifles for all characters not just IG-88 but thats a minor issue. Even the speeder bike is not bad. It has some nice parts tucked inside.
All a person needs to make the scene from Empire Strikes back are the two $29.99 sets. "

"I'm one with the Force, and the Force is with me"
" The inital wave of Rogue One sets had excellent minifigures and excellent builds. The smallest of the wave, Imperial Assault Hovertank has 385 parts, 3 exclusive minifigures and 1 build and retails for $39.99.
Set:
Lego do not make military vehicles so Lego green-lighting this set was a surprise. The build is extremely sturdy and very heavy. Its mostly bricks being stacked on top of one another. The front has a small 2x2 black tile which would indicate the hatch that opens up. The whole front section can be lifted to access the inside. The top of the tank can be also lifted. It has a small gun turret and a place to stand your figure. On either side are twin cannons and in the centre underneath the cockpit are two more cannons. Integrated well into the build are two missile shooters which are on either side of the cannon at the front. The vertical wing assemblies on either side are sort of pasted on at the end using 1x4 technic brick. The sides are detailed using 1x2 bricks with groove so the build doesn't look too boring.
The back of the tank is bare save for a couple of tiles and 2x2 jumper plates. There is an orange crate included which goes on the back. The movie featured three crates on the back but you can place only two. Also the second crate is available in the Battle on Scarif set. Moving the crate leaves a very bare look, almost like a pick-up truck type of design.
The underside of the tank has 4 clear technic axles which allow the tank to "hover" on the ground. The idea is nicely executed.
The crate is a fantastic and an ingenious creation. It looks modest and cool and can be recoloured to give a very military-esque look. The inside is very compact but has space for a small pistol and binoculars. There is enough space to put the Death Star plans found in the Battle on Scarif set.
Minifigures:
Chirrut Imwe: The figure is a fantasic rebel to my Lego collection. His face captures the essence of the character and his eyes are coloured teal to give the blind eyes look. The skin colour is too white for the character. A more nougat like Baze Malbus's would be better. His torso is very reusable and comes with a kama skirt piece to go over his legs. He comes with a staff piece which uses the pearl dark grey lightsaber hilt previously available only with Kylo Ren. He also comes with a Bowcaster type of weapon.
Hovertank Pilots: The figures are identical and look like stormtrooper than pilots. The helmet are the new mold used for the Scarif troopers. The printing is so intricate and precise. The torso and leg printing is equally impressive. One of the troopers comes with a blaster and the other with a rifle.
Overall:
The set is fantastic. The parts-to-piece ratio is very good and the figure selection is nice. The set could maybe use another figure but its okay. I picked this set up on Force Friday, the day the sets were released, along with the Darth Revan polybag which I felt justified the price.
