Hey everyone, before you read the rest of this caption go check out @starwars.archivist! this post is part of a small collaboration we are doing this week. head over to his page to check out some facts he has posted about battlefront 2! "the bounty hunter left after the battle was over, he said something about tracking down a smuggler on tatooine." - unidentified 501st trooper.
the kamino uprising occurred 12 years before the events of a new hope when a group of kaminoans went rogue and started creating another clone army intended to combat the empire. the new clones created by the rebellious cloners were made using the dna of the long dead bounty hunter, jango fett, and wore phase 1 clone armour.
upon learning of the rogue kaminoans and their anti-empire actions, the empire hired the famous bounty hunter, boba fett to lead the 501st legion to p*******e and sabotage the cloning facilities of tipoca city. the imperial forces, lead by boba, made their way to the cloning facility, killing all the rogue clones that got in their way.
their objective now was to retrieve a template sample of jango fett's dna from the facility to prevent the kaminoans from using it to clone more rogue soldiers. after getting his hands on the sample, boba returned to the craft he and the 501st had arrived on, then returned to the facility to aid in the wiping out of the rogue kaminoans and their clones.
Here is a look at the lego star wars republic swamp speeder from 2010!!! this set retailed for £30 and has 176 pieces which makes the swamp speeder and 5 minifigures (one of which is exclusive!) while that doesn’t seem like the best price per piece, the set is large enough and a toys r us exclusive so that justifies the price.
the minifigures included are a super battle droid, 2 regular battle droids, an exclusive phase 2 clone trooper and barriss offee! the clone trooper is a good upgrade from the 2007 version with updated torso and helmet prints and the barriss offee figure has great crisp face and torso prints and only comes in this set and a magnets set!
the swamp speeder its self is pretty much perfect! it has a great size and is very well scaled to a minifigure! there are seats and control panels for 2 minifigures on the speeder and when you rotate the turbine at the rear of the speeder, the set of flick fire missiles at the front rotate due to a technic contraption underneath the vehicle! this speeder has wheels underneath which give it the effect as if it’s floating and also means it has a very smooth ride!
overall, looking back i was surprised this set had so few pieces! i always thought that it was a £40 set which was probably due to its size and the amount of figures! looking at the amount of pieces, it would seem as if this set should only be £20 but given the larger pieces used in this set, the amount of minifigures and the sticker designs, i can see why lego went for a £30 rrp!
