A Golden Review

Review: 75172 Y-wing Starfighter, by makoy, on Eurobricks

Did the Inthert’s MOC we just featured wet your pallet so much that you’re craving a Y-wing of your own? Then it’s good news that there’s an official set on the shelves right now, and that it’s an exceptionally good one. That’s what makoy told me in his review on the 75172 set from the Rogue One wave. He goes really in depth, discussing how well the details and the proportions of the set match the original model (spoiler: really well!), showing off various highlights in used techniques, critically assessing every minifig and even giving you tips on how to swoosh the set properly. Better still, he also gives some suggestions how you could improve the set by swapping out a couple of pieces. It you are hesitant to buy this set, this is the definitive review to read. And even if you have it already or don’t plan on buying it, this is an enjoyable review nonetheless from which you can learn a thing or two. So you have no excuse checking out the review that very deservedly and fittingly earned makoy his golden reviewer’s academy status.

The Reviewed UCS Snowspeeder Reviewed

Review 75144 - UCS Snowspeeder, by Jim, on Eurobricks

 

I only buy one Lego set a year most of the time, so it are the ones I really, really like. It’s been a while since such a set came out for me, but now it’s time to start planning my next purchase because I really, really like the new 75144 UCS Snowspeeder that will be available on May the Fourth. The press release already got me excited, and now Jim’s review here on Eurobricks completely sold me – or rather, sold the set to me. He gives us an in-depth look into everything we couldn’t see in the press release: what the internals look like, how the cockpit interior shapes up, what the boring and fun parts of the building process are, how much fun playing with the functions is… He also presents some pros and cons if you’re still undecided. But how can you be undecided when looking at Jim’s gorgeous shots of every angle you can conceive, showing how great this model looks? Don’t take my word for it though, and have a look and a read in Jim’s insightful review right here!

A Hotly Anticipated Review

Review: 75098 Assault on Hoth, by Bob De Quatre, on Eurobricks

 

As of June 1st, the much debated UCS Assault on Hoth set is available for purchase. There have been a lot of comments on the builds in advance, but what do they look like from up close? Are there any interesting parts to be found in the set? Do the minifigures look great? What kind of goodies does the instruction booklet have to offer? And which spare parts do you get? All of these are questions Bob De Quatre answers in his excellent review. He uncovers some extra flaws but some welcome surprises as well. So before you buy or don’t buy, definitely check out Bob’s beautiful pictures and honest opinion.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released on DVD and Blu-Ray today and to celebrate this occasion, we have written up our thoughts on the first installment in Disney’s new Star Wars trilogy.
