FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 7

A smallish box for an Iconic set. This one has been seen before but this snowspeeder is without those awful orange grebling pieces. For SW Original Troligoy fans this is a must and I was very excited getting my hands on this one.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 7

We've seen Luke and the Snowtroopers in other sets. And we get Dak who doenst feature much at all. The pieces used to build are relatively available although some in rebel orange are not so common.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 8

Small set that was once again clevelry designed and put together. Swooshing is eminently easy and the set is sturdy. If one has an AT-AT one can play with the grappling hook to try and topple it. Fun, fun fun!

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 5

Small-medium sized set. From the retail price it wasnt too bad but its not the cheapest out there.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 9

Star Wars: Original Trilogy. Empire Strikes back. This episode is dear to my heart. This is an extremely popular theme and few snow sets exist to showcase the huge Hoth battle.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 7

Wouldnt say this was very exclusive but it has been discontinued. Not many are left on the shelves anymore.

PACKAGING | Score: 5

Small package but detailed graphics.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 7

This set has been discontinued and EOL is iminent. There is already another Snowspeeder but its damn ugly with the inaccurate orange greebling. For SW OT fans, this a good set to get if you didnt get the previous version. If you already have that one, get this one just to get a more accurate model.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 7

Doesnt have a stand and the wings are angle downward. It is however a little more unique since its a rarer snow set and less grey and more white that helps it to stand out from the sea of grey that is Star Wars sets.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

A lovley little set to build and behold. Fans of the Original Trilogy will be thrilled.
