Minifigures

The minifigures include The Mandalorian Grogu and The Mythrol. This is the Mandalorian’s version from the first episodes. His durasteeltan armor has been on him. The body and legs are the same as the AT-ST Raider (755254) or smaller Razor Crest (752922). There is one difference: the arm was printed with new graphics for shoulder pads and armor. He has a serious expression on his head and frowns. However, he does wear his separate hairpiece and shiny helmet. The brick-built Amban Sniper rifle is his accessory.

Bags 20-21 cover the end of the top portion of the ship. TechnicTo create unique shapes, beams can be used in combination with tiles and plates. The set was quite surprising to me. Surprisingly, they just sit on top and don’t connect to anything else.

Bags 22-25 cover both the engines at the sides and the connection between them. This bag is quite heavy considering that the panel between it and the engine was thin.

The However, LEGO Star Wars UCS (75331)The set is impressive but not all elements. Star Wars fan may find the price too steep at $599.99.

There are also a lot of stickers that you have to put on and for it to be a UCS set at this price point, I’m still not sure why LEGO hasn’t opted for printed parts. Although there are four minifigures, another one or two additional ones would’ve been great like Frog-Lady, Peli Motto, or Migs Mayfeld. LEGO may have intended to build a bigger-scale minifigure-scale vessel. But it’s far too large. This is most likely because of the ship’s interior detail.

Last thing I didn’t like about it is how fragile it is. It is simple to put the top on this ship. Except for the engine, these pieces are fragile. I didn’t think I was too rough putting the coverings on but the smaller sections literally fell apart on me.

This is a beautiful piece. It is balanced between the plates of the exterior and the metal studs. The interior does look pretty decent with the carbon-freezing chamber and the storage area for Boba Fett’s gear. The interior is big enough to hold the Blurrg. This was quite remarkable.
