Mark two decades of exciting LEGO Star Wars sets with this Snowspeeder - 20th Anniversary Edition construction toy for kids. This commemorative model is an updated version of the original Snowspeeder model released in 1999. It features an opening cockpit with space for the Luke Skywalker and Dak Ralter minifigures in their pilot suits. It also packs plenty of firepower with laser cannons, a spring-loaded shooter under each wing, plus a stud shooter and harpoon with string at the rear. This 309-piece playset also has an elevating and rotating gun tower with a stud shooter, plus 4 minifigures with weapons-everything a young fan needs to role-play epic Battle of Hoth action from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. And to add to the collectability of the set, the minifigure line-up includes a reproduction of the original 2003 Lando Calrissian minifigure with a 20th anniversary display stand.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LegoDad8868 from Few easy mods, very happy with this set This set has a lot to offer. Airspeeder was fun to build. Side build (laser gun) looks great. Regular mini figs look good. In my opinion Lando is the best of the 5 20th anniversary mini figs to get. You get a lot here, lot of play value too. Few simple mods. 1) We put two of the extra red studs between the laser and the dark gray tips, looks much more powerful. Same thing with the ground cannon, added a red stud to the barrel. 2) We took the extra light gray stud (with the hole in it) and put the grappling hook in it. Now the rear stud shooter can shoot the hook. Works really well, only issue is you have to put some slack in the string else it gets hung up. Cons (always have to have some cons) 1) Rebel troops hats don't match the last battle pack (these are a darker tan). Not a huge issue, but would be nice if more consistent. 2)When I think of skyspeeders think of orange markings. This set comes in gray. I prefer the orange, but easy enough to change. 3) (this the only one I really care about) the back of Lando's torso is just lettering. Lucky the cape covers this, but wish it wasn't there. Great set, definitely recommend. If you are on the fence about getting it.....get it you won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mailman2181 from Revisited, but still awesome. Next to the Millenium Falcon, this is one of my favorite ships from the Star Wars Trilogy. The snowspeeder is absolutely iconic, and has a place in LEGO history. Is this a remake of a 20 year old classic? Yes. That's the idea. Have there been other ideations of the snowspeeder? Yes, and rightly so. Just as there have been many variants of the venerable X-wing fighter. For starters, the build is again pretty straightforward. Nothing complicated, or altogether delicate. It holds together really well, so feel free to swoosh around the room all you want. The design of the cockpit canopy is great, allowing plenty of room to get Luke and Dak in their seats. Adding to the playability factor is the little cannon on the back, and the spring-loaded shooters. An added benefit is the throwback Lando Calrissian figure. I couldn't wait to get this set when I saw it announced. It's a bit high on the price point, but still worth it. LEGO hit the mark on this one, in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cachamoe from Snowspeeder! I really like this set! This is actually (somehow) my first Lego Snowspeeder and I love it! The build has nice size and is sturdy. The sticker selection is good, however I wish that this had the orange color scheme. The interior is well detailed and is functional enough. I don't have any issues with the main build. The secondary build is a nice and appropriate addition. I like the turret's look and ability to spin around and angle up and down. I personally leave off the stud shooter though, as it looks more realistic without it in my opinion. The minifigs are excellent as well. Luke and Dak both have the older helmet designs, which is fine. (especially since they couldn't fit into the speeder with the newer ones) The hoth rebel trooper is proper and I love the throwback blaster! The Lando is the biggest highlight! He looks great and the two- colored cape is sweet! (and covers up the 20th Aniversary print on the back of the torso) He is the best and most desirable of the exclusive figs to me. I know many people are fustrated with the fact that the snowspeeder build hasn't really changed in multiple years, but I think it's a pretty perfect design. Of course, that is coming from someone who just now owns one. All in all, I love everything about this set!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stvincent from Iconic I very much enjoyed this set, and its celebration of 20 years of lego star wars. Overall the build was fun and having the collectible Lando is definitely a plus. I do feel it was a little steep in price but that may also be due to the fact that its a 20th anniversary set. Overall tho, I would recommend this set to anyone who has enjoyed lego star wars over the years and would like to re experience the joy that it brought them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EveryLast from Great Set, Iconic Ship, Wrong Pilot Outfits Simply put, this is a great set. As a new collector, I never got a chance to buy the Snowspeeder before, so I'm glad to add it to my collection, on top of the retro Lando figure. The only issue I have with this set aside from the slightly overpriced value (IMO), is that the Rebel pilot uniforms for Luke/Dak are X-Wing pilot uniforms, not Snowspeeder pilot uniforms. Minor detail... Certainly doesn't affect playability, nor will children care about this. However, as a collector, I have to find another source for Snowspeeder torso/legs. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by RobotMonkey from Ehhh This is one of the two twentieth anniversary sets I bought for myself. I’m not quite old enough to have been around when the original sets came out so this is a nice experience for me. As I have leaned away from playing with legos to become a collector, I find the sets to be very well designed and detailed to look similar but different from the originals they are based on. Since I don’t play with legos anymore there isn’t really a play value for me but I can see this set gives children a great ability to play with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RextroCollector from A good set. Can’t say much! Though it is similar to the 2014 set, if you didn’t have the chance to get it, now is your chance. This set is very overpriced, but the LANDO minifigure makes up for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Milzy4501 from Snowspeeder 20th Anniversary! One of my favorite ships from Star Wars. This set is a fun build and is similar to other speeder builds in the past. Glad it comes with the harpoon and cable since not snowspeeder is complete without one. The mini figures look really nice and can’t go wrong with the Anniversary Lando! Overall great set and recommended if you don’t have a Hoth Snowspeeder.
