'No disintegrations..'
" Boba Fett was supposedly the best bounty hunter in the galaxy and has a massive fan following. The LEGO designers have chosen to re-create his Return of the Jedi costume and Fett is one of the most complex BrickHeadz released.
Building the body breaks with the typical BrickHeadz style, and instead of layering lots of bricks you build an internal frame. The colour scheme is excellent and the movie-accurate printing is awesome - like the dent on the front of the helmet, or the yellow side striping. Another authentic detail is a brick-built jet-pack on the back of the figure.
41629 Boba Fett is a big improvement over the exclusive one available at a comic-con last year and one of the best in the Star Wars BrickHeadz range. "

Self-Rescuing Princess
" Leia's most iconic look is undoubtedly her elegant appearance from Star Wars: A New Hope. 41628 Princess Leia Organa is one of the best Star Wars BrickHeadz released yet.
The dress has some nice detail like Leia's Alderaanian belt, and I like the inclusion of her hood on the reverse. Leia's blaster looks good even at such a small scale and really helps to define her courageous spirit.
Thankfully the designers have perfected Leia's double-bun hairstyle and it uses some great technique to achieve the circular shapes.
If you're a Princess Leia fan this isn't a set to be missed, even if you've never bought a BrickHeadz before. "

Enfys Nest's Cloud Riders
" With grey being the dominant colour of LEGO Star Wars sets, 75215 is a wonderful burst of colour and variety to the line.
The bikes can be built by two people at the same time due to the inclusion of two instruction booklets, which is a really neat idea. Both bikes follow a similar building style; constructing an inner frame that plates and tiles are then attached onto. Enfys's bike has a distinguishing rear-stabilising vane and overall is the 'sleeker' bike. The colour scheme of tan and red works really well and also matches the movie. My only minor complaint are the front stabilising vanes for the bikes - they need six stickers each and are difficult to attach as they bend quite a bit.
Enfys Nest is one of the best Star Wars minifigures ever, with a unique helmet, printed cape and staff, she looks amazing. Although why she has no face underneath nor comes with a hair-piece is puzzling considering Enfys does reveal her appearance at the end of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Weazel and Beckett are also great minifigures, though if LEGO can make fabric capes for minifigures then why can't they make fabric coats?
This is a great little set considering there's three exclusive minifigures plus the brilliant builds of the bikes. I'd highly recommend this set to all Star Wars fans. "

'Darkness rises and light to meet it'
" One of the best action sequences from The Last Jedi was Rey and Kylo Ren teaming up to battle the Praetorian Guards. 75216 has some great minifigures but the model itself is rather lacking.
The throne room has some great details like the oculus Rey looks through and Snoke's throne is amazing. However the designers have had to take artistic licence with the lift as it only fits a single minifigure, even though in the film two people can stand inside. Overall the set feels quite empty as most of the piece count goes towards detail rather than size. What's most frustrating about 75216 is it's lack of red, with only a few red bricks around the base, and not even a suggestion of the scarlet curtains surrounding the throne room in the film.
The play features aren't astounding, and the secret compartments don't add much. The best function is that Rey can be placed on a tile that you can pull towards Snoke's throne just like in the movie.
It's the minifigures that are the best part of the set, with 75216 being the cheapest way to get Snoke at the moment. Rey and Ren aren't exclusive and it would have been nice to see Rey with an updated 'angry' expression as she has during her scenes in the throne room. The Praetorian Guards are awesome with new moulded helmets and shoulder-armour, but it might be nice to see the other variants in future.
All in all 75216 doesn't really deliver in all aspects; the minifigures are the main attraction but the throne room could have been better. "

'Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?'
" Masked characters sometimes don't work particularly well as a BrickHeadz but thankfully 41620 Stormtrooper is an excellent figure.
Based on an Imperial Stormtrooper the printing adds so much extra detail like the utility belt and blue side-striping on the helmet. The movie accuracy is really good and the trooper comes with a typical blaster and even a thermal detonator at the back of the belt.
What would look particularly awesome I think is to buy multiples to have a stormtrooper army on display - you'd just need a big shelf!
I'm just hoping that the LEGO designers will make BrickHeadz of the different variants of stormtrooper as this figure is a great success.

'Impressive. Most impressive.'
" Teased ages ago in a similar way to the poster for The Phantom Menace, 41619 Darth Vader is an amazing figure.
There's a lot of detail, including the Sith Lord's life-support pack and I love the new triangular piece recreating his mouth grille.
Some fans may debate whether the round tiles for Vader's lenses should have been red instead of black, but that's personal preference.
Overall due to the BrickHeadz aesthetic this is probably the cutest figure of Darth Vader available and a must buy for Star Wars fans.

Han Solo's Landspeeder
" It's clear that Han Solo is part of a very high speed chase against the Empire in the Solo teaser trailer. Whether his speeder will survive said chase is unknown, but it is a very cool ride.
The build is fascinating and keeps you guessing until the third and final bag. It appears almost boat-like for a large part of the build, but once the last pieces are added it looks accurate to the speeder we see in the trailer. The dark blue colour scheme and overall shape look good.
On the underside of the speeder are small wheels and the model is sturdy enough to survive being whooshed along the living room floor. The top of the speeder is removable with storage inside for a wrench and extra ammo. Even the spring-loaded shooters are well hidden, so the speeder also looks great on display.
The minifigure of a young Han Solo looks great with detailed printing on his jacket and a reversible headpiece - one side his typical smug grin and the other looking determined. Qi'Ra's character is still very mysterious but her minifigure looks great, although the colours could be a bit brighter. Both minifigures come with blaster pistols.
Corellian hounds aren't seen in the trailer but judging by the size of their teeth it's safe to guess that they may be guard dogs.
This set is a perfect harmony between playability and display value. The exclusive minifigures are amazing and the set is good value for money. If you only want a small set from the Solo range then make it this one. "

'You Must Go to Dagobah.'
" In nearly two decades of LEGO Star Wars there's never been a set dedicated to the home of the greatest Jedi Master - until now.
As it's such a small set it's a rather disappointingly quick build but it manages to re-create Yoda's humble home very well with some clever use of parts for the curved doorway and window. LEGO have even included Yoda's snake roommate!
The earthen colour palette is accurate to the source material and the ability to move the exterior pieces allows for different display options.
However the play-features of this set are the real stand out. Luke can 'swing' using the vine after pressing a lever, perform a 'backflip' by hitting a brick and 'levitate' items using the Force because of transparent pieces. You can basically re-enact every famous training scene from The Empire Strikes Back in this set.
The exclusive minifigures just make this set even better. Luke comes in his training outfit with a reversible headpiece: one nervous, the other eyes closed in concentration. Yoda looks fantastic and comes with his iconic stick. Finally the first R2-D2 variant in years with printing representing the poor droid covered in mud.
For Star Wars LEGO fans this set has been worth the wait and truly does Yoda's home justice. It's fun and looks great on display. Not one to miss. "

Incoming Imperial Patrol
" With Solo: A Star Wars Story on the horizon this battle pack gives a great tease about what the Empire was like early in it's reign. (Spoilers - there were very boring jobs)
There's at least 4 new troopers coming in Solo and the Imperial Patrol Trooper is included here. The new helmet mould looks like something between a Clone Trooper and a Stormtrooper, and it's very detailed.
The Imperial Recruitment Officer looks similar to the one seen in the teaser trailer talking to Han Solo. He's a simple minifigure but good if you want to expand your Imperial officer collection. (Clearly not every officer got to blow up planets)
Finally the Imperial Emigration Officer is a female, diversifying the ranks nicely. She's got a reversible headpiece - one side calm, the other quite angry. The only disappointment is that all the Imperials come with stud-shooters rather than blaster pistols.
The speeder you can briefly glimpse in the teaser trailer and it looks pretty accurate in LEGO form. The only slight issue is that the Patrol Trooper should be able to sit on the speeder rather than stand.
For those who want to collect an ever-expanding range of Imperial officers or just want one set from Solo then this is a great place to start. "

'Begun the Clone War has...'
" As with all battle packs fans just want the minifigures and 75206 doesn't disappoint.
Ki Adi Mundi has only appeared once before and that was as a Clone Wars minifigure with very big eyes. This version is based on Attack of the Clones and looks brilliant, with exceptional torso printing.
Jedi Padawan Barriss Offee is brilliant, especially the new skirt piece. There's great face printing to represent her markings and a realistic pale green is used.
The Clone Troopers are probably what will attract fans most as they aren't given a specific rank so are perfect for army building.
The mini-build speeder isn't particularly interesting and as so few pieces are devoted to it feels as if it has voids. It doesn't even have handlebars to pose a minifigure controlling it.
This is a great battle pack including some of the most obscure Jedi, although it would be nice to see a Separatist battle pack to go with this one. "
