There are a couple of LEGO Star Wars sets that have been recently revealed that I think are worth talking about; the #75084 LEGO Star Wars Wookiee Gunship that was showcased at last week’s San Diego Comic-Con, and the #75058 LEGO Star Wars MTT that was first revealed at the end of May, but we haven’t talked about yet. 🙂
We will start with the #75084 LEGO Star Wars Wookiee Gunship, simply because it is more exciting. Although the Wookiees themselves are pretty plain, the gunship has a very sweet color-scheme and some interesting new elements. Here is the official description: Protect Wullffwarro and his Jedi friend, Kanan Jarrus, with the powerful LEGO Star Wars Wookiee Gunship. As featured in the Star Wars: Rebels animated TV series, this amazing battle-ready craft has loads of weapons to see off any invading force, like movable front cannons and an elevating top cannon. When the action really heats up, raise the wings into attack mode and unleash the never-before-seen rapid shooters! If you run low on ammo, open the side hatches to access the spare supply, then lower the rear bay door and unload the mobile gun post. Includes 4 minifigures with assorted weapons: Wullffwarro, Kanan Jarrus and 2 Wookiees. 570 pieces. Price: $69.99. Will be available from January 2015.
The other set that hasn’t been officially released yet, although it has been available at some markets, is the #75058 LEGO Star Wars MTT. This set has been received by the LEGO fan community with a lot less enthusiasm, in fact that’s why I haven’t talked about it yet. Here is the official description: Transport the droids into battle in the heavily-armored MTT! Open up this Multi-Troop Transport repulsorlift vehicle with hidden wheels to reveal a huge array of play functions. Pull down the side flaps and fire the spring-loaded shooters, flip the back hatch containing a STAP, and aim the front cannons. Turn the gear to extend the Battle Droid rack at the front of the tank or switch around the 4 racks between different compartments of the MTT. Let your imagination run wild and create your own version of the famous Battle of Naboo from Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. Includes 3 minifigures with assorted weapons: Naboo Security Guard, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, plus a Battle Droid Pilot and 2 Battle Droids. 954 pieces. I couldn’t find an official price, but according to the video-review below by the BrickShow, it is around $90.
