Lego Star Wars Luke's LandspeederInitial thoughts: The first words that came out of his mouth when my 7 year old saw the Lego Star Wars Luke’s Landspeeder was “look at all the characters! COOL!” Which is a mighty fine endorsement to be kicking off with. This comes with five characters (C-3PO, R2-D2, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker and a Sandtrooper) which is quite unusual for this size kit.

We liked: Really really easy to make (it’s pitched at the 7-12 age range). And nice that it wasn’t all grey for a change as many Star Wars crafts can be! Obviously the fact that there were so many characters included was a big hit too.

We weren’t keen on: The only drawback for me was the price of the Landspeeder – it’s mighty expensive considering the size of the toy you get at the end of it. These concerns were obviously not shared by my son.

Overall: The Lego Star Wars Luke’s Landspeeder is a nice easy kit to build with some snazzy design touches (my son loved that you had to bend a couple of straw things around the front to make the bumper! However, once making it, Dan was not impressed with the fact that two of the characters had been given lightsabres and yet there is no where to store them on the landspeeder for when they’re travelling. Clearly a design flaw!
