Lego Star Wars 75022: Mandalorian Speeder

First impressions

The Lego Star Wars range is full of weird and wonderful spaceships and vehicles. None of them are what you would find in your local Asda car park, but they are futuristic and out of this world (literally!). The bold designs and detailed minifigures will always appeal to Star Wars fans, and they are collected very seriously by a few.

Here we have the Mandalorian Speeder which is from the Star Wars ‘The Clone Wars” TV Series. Complete with weapons these minfigures are ready for battle, either amongst themselves or with other Lego Star Wars sets.

My experience

Obviously this set is going to appeal to Star Wars fans. That said, I think that the style and design of the ‘Speeder’ looks a bit like a speedboad, so a child could easily use their imagination and add a few different minifigures and forget about the Star Wars connection!

With 211 pieces in this set I would class it as medium sized. It certainly isn’t going to challenge a child with the build, and with an age guide of 8 to 14 years it will be up in a matter of minutes and not hours. The building of any Lego is an event and part of the attraction for children. With 3 very interesting minifigures in the set this is sure to catch the eye of the collectors. We have 2 very similarly designed Mandalorian Super Commando’s. The only difference between them is the face. Then we have the Darth Maul minifigure, complete with mechanical legs. This is a unique design, and along with the other figures these are all unique to this set and do not come with any other Lego Star Wars set.

The colourful design of the set does make it easier to build than plain block colours. The Star Wars sets are often very different from one another, and this is a design that stands out with the navy blue detailing on the Mandalorian Speeder and the red colour of the minifigures.

Once the set is all built a child will get a lot of enjoyment from the set. They will be able to use this set along with other Lego Star Wars models, and standing at 19cm in length and 12cm wide the Mandalorian Speeder is a reasonably sized model.

Price and availability

This is not a current model, and with the rising prices of older Lego models there is only one way that this set will go. An original RRP of £24.99 is nowhere to be seen, and you should be expecting to pay around the £40 mark for a brand new boxed example. If you are happy to buy one in used condition then you pay be able to get one for £15-£20.

Final thoughts

Overall I would have to say that this is not one of the cheapest of set, especially with the unique minifigures and desirability overall. I think that you will find sets that offer better value for money out there, even within this range. That said, the quality is typical of the Lego Star Wars range, and the rarity always adds value, but it may not mean anything to a child. I would recommend this set if you are looking at starting your own Lego Star Wars collection, but I wouldn’t even think about buying anything other than one in mint condition, and don’t dare open the box.

    I'll keep an eye out in the car park when I next go to Asda! Would be fun to see some of these kind of vehicles there but I wouldn't like to ask one of the occupants to step aside from the freezer so I could buy some oven chips!! Well reviewed
