Hello guys and welcome to another video from our series of buy recommendations, where we take a look at new or upcoming lego sets and tell you our opinion if the set is worth your money or not.
Should you buy the Lego Star Wars 75197 First Order Specialists Battle Pack?
With the next wave lego of course is going to release new battle packs, and today we look at one of them, the First Order Specialists Battle Pack 75197
As in many battlepacks before, the vehicle in this set is a small canon. That itself is nothing bad, some of the canons didn’t looked that good but thats no problem since most people nonetheless demolish battlepack vehicles for the parts. But this one just really looks like the canon from the senate trooper battlepack, the whole construction is basically the same. So not a bad design itself, but a really lazy move from lego.
I’m also very split about the minifigures. As with the first First Order Battlepack we got before episode 7 was released, half the figures are mostly useless. No one wants the First Order Staff Figures and still we get nearly the same figures again. Waiting two and a half years and then doing the same thing again wont make it better lego. But the other two figures are really great, they look badass, will work with the other First Order Stormtroopers and the new weapons also look quit interesting, lets hope this blue piece in the front be too expensive on bricklink.
In my opinion the Set is a decent Battlepack. The vehicle is useless except for its parts but we kind of already expect that from a battlepack, and we get two really cool minifigures. But the other two are also somehow useless, especially when you go and buy several battlepacks, what are you supposed to do with the same 20 boring staffmembers laying around ? So I kinda like the set for its figures, but because of the not so good ratio of the minifigs I wouldn’t recommend to buy it more often than 2 or 3 times.
I hope this video was helpful, of course tell me your opinion on this set down in the comments and dont forget to like and subscribe, see you next time !
