Dargo #867 LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens Minifigures
Finally someone was able to convince me to buy this set. I've seen it on store shelves a few weeks ago, but I had ignored it because I was not interested with Dargo's release. However, when I tried to get it a few days ago, the shop no longer have any for sale. The shop owner told me that the product is in high demand. bla bla bla.. heheh. it is a seller's nature to use whatever excuse to sell their products. lol. Anyway i manage to get one so let's see how good is this set.
My first impression? Wow. Two astromech droids in #867A; BB-8 and Imperial Astromech Droid. A bit disappointing because i wish they will include Rey in this set of 8s but Kylo Ren is highlight in this release. As a bonus, there's extra bricks in each box that you can collect and later build micro Millennium Falcon and Tie Fighter.
What's in the box:
Instructions for micro Millennium Falcon and Tie Fighter:
Baseplate, weapons/accessories and extra parts for the micro build.
Front and rear view of the minifigures:
Tie Fighter Pilot (Star Wars Rebels)
First Order TIE Fighter Pilot. [Pending updated pic]. I've just noticed that I forgot to install Respiratory Pipe to the helmet. I hope i didn't throw it away :(
First Order Stormtrooper Officer
First Order Crew Member
First Order Officer
Sabine Wren (Star Wars Rebels)
BB-8 and Imperial Astromech Droid (Star Wars Rebels)
It is clear that these characters are mixed from the latest Star Wars movie The Force Awakens and the animated series Star Wars Rebels. Even the title on the box is Space Wars, not Star Wars. Therefore they can include whatever characters they want in this set. Be thankful they do not include characters from Galaxy Squad or Marvel / DC superheroes in this set. ahaha
I admit it, the print is much better than before. All design (almost all) looks symmetrical and balanced. No loose parts either.
Unfortunately my favorite characters here are the worst in this set :(. Prints on the standard minifigure is quite ok, but the prints on curved surfaces are tilted and distorted.
Oh one more thing, Dargo didn't get the right pauldron cloth for the Stormtrooper officer. They just use simple red cloth instead this one:
Not fair if I just hit Dargo's weaknesses in this set. I think their print is much more better this time and the fact that they can imitate this exact helmet (with Respiratory Pipe) is amazing.
They manage to get the right Kylo Ren's Lightsaber (Croseed 4L/2L Trans-Red Bar) and also been generous for giving extra piece of the hood for him.
