David at Solid Brix Studios received an early copy of the model from the LEGO Group ahead of its wide release on April 26, and has now shared an in-depth review over on his YouTube channel. And as you can probably tell even just from the initial images, we’re apparently looking at a tantalising addition to the LEGO Star Wars line-up.
“I’m very, very impressed with this set – much more than I had ever anticipated to be,” David says. “You’d think it might be a little monotonous with all those arms and weird techniques, but I found it to be a very fun and enjoyable build. I felt like I was building Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back, and that’s a very good thing.”
