First impressions

If you have seen the latest Star Wars film then you will probably remember Rey’s Speeder from early on in the film. I saw this spacecraft and it stuck in my mind, and as soon as I saw it in the toy shop I had to buy it for someone, because it was a memorable part of the film for me.

Included in the set is the Rey’s Speeder which requires to be built, and then a couple of mini figures. You get Rey and also Unkar’s Thug. The red Speeder is a rather eye-catching spacecraft, and looking at the box I would say that there is definitely plenty of attention to detail as far as the aesthetics are concerned. So, how was it to build?

My experience

There are 193 pieces in this kit, and whilst the Speeder looks quite complicated and intricate it is actually easy to put the body together and then add to it. The engine flips over and reveals the storage hatch, a nice added touch to the design. There is plenty of detail on the spacecraft with the front grille and various lights and the windshield. There is a very basic sled, which can be ridden by Rey. Unfortunately the Speeder doesn’t hover like it does in the film, though I am sure the imagination of a child will allow this to happen.

After a short while of construction following the instructions you will find your child can begin playing with the figures and the model. The Rey’s Speeder is reasonably sized at around 9cm in height and 14cm in length. If you have any other Star Wars sets from The Force Awakens then the Rey’s Speeder would make a good addition to your collection. These kits are often collected, but I would rather they be enjoyed and played with, because I just don’t think they will be worth a great deal to collectors due to their low price currently and the fact that there are so many of them around.

The small pieces can easily be lost, but the same goes with all of the Lego sets, and it is good to see the detail and thought that the Lego brand have put into this model. They rarely produce below-par pieces. This one is designed for 7 to 12 year olds, though I think it could be put together by a slightly younger child if I am honest. It also comes with a warning that the small parts are not suitable for children under the age of 36 months.

Price and availability

Looking online I think that at under £20 the Rey’s Speeder is good value for money. You may find one in good condition on eBay if you are prepared to consider secondhand, but I think the product from new is priced affordably to begin with.

Final thoughts

This is a simple yet interesting set, and if you have a Star Wars fan in your house then this could be bought for the child of a fan. I do like the simplicity of this one, and it isn’t difficult to construct. Still, the hidden storage hatch and attention to detail makes this an essential for any Star Wars fan, and all at such an affordable price.
