Mini-Meph, age 6, takes a keen interest in the site and quite often helps with photo shoots and with new items. He did a short review for me back in September on some of the new 5POA Star Wars figures - and this week asked to do another review on one of the new Star Wars Lego sets he has bought. I am delighted to indulge him, so over to Mini-Meph - and everything you are about to see and read has been done by him with just a few assists from me to get it online.
This is the Utapau Trooper Lego set. I got it from Smyths Toy Shop. It normally costs £11.99 and is a 2014 set with Darth Vader ont he box.
The set came with four Clone Troopers. Two Airborne Troopers and two 212 Troopers. I like the two Airborne Troopers.
The 212 troopers come with short guns and the Airborne troopers come with long guns. And the guns fire by pressing the bit at the top and the end goes flying.
The helmets all come off with printed faces underneath.
I did not like why it did not come with one droid or super battle droid for the troopers to fight. But it does come with a big Spider Droid. You will need more Seperatists sets to have a battle.
The Spider droid can fire 3 missiles out of its body with a firing thing around the middle. The legs move to help it walk.
The troopers were well easy to build. I did like the fact they had skirts, but they were a bit hard to put on. The droid was harder to build and took quite a long time.
I would give this set a score of 5 out of 5
