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.

Great set!!
This set is fun, but nearly identical to an earlier version, except for the gun emplacement and anniversary figure. I think they should have included Pilot Luke as the anniversary figure instead. I'm unsure why Lando was placed with a snowspeeder instead of with Boba Fett's Slave I. It's slightly overcosted in my opinion. I think $30-35 would have been more appropriate. Overall, great set.

Disappointing Build, Look For Another Snow Speeder
I am a huge Star Wars fan and love the snow speeder in the Battle of Hoth. When I saw this set I was very excited to purchase it. However, when I started to build it I was very disappointed by the amount of stickers I had to place on the Lego piece (way more than is necessary). Unfortunately, I feel like Lego is adding more and more stickers to the builds. I would understand if none of the pieces had "pre-stickers" on them, but there are some pieces that do (only one in this build which is the navigation system). Builds would be so much nicer without the stickers. Personally for me, if I can't get the stickers on perfectly, it drives me crazy. Second issue I had with the build is the grappling hook. Just having the tie the string was frustrating. I have fairly large fingers, and ended up having to get tweezers to help. Also the instructions for tying the knot were not very clear, and neither was how to push the poll through the opening with the string inside (kept pushing the string through the other side). Playing wise, the wings kept popping off, and yes, they were clipped in correctly. To top everything off, my build was missing a Lego piece, which Lego is shipping another one out.
I love the original Star Wars builds, but this one just let me down.

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!

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.

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.

Appreciate this re-release
My son and I are fairly new to the Lego world so while I understand the Snowspeeder has been made and remade in numerous forms before – all the way from micro to mini to UCS – this is the first one we own. The 20th anniversary Lando minifigure is a nice bonus as the primary reason for purchasing the set was to finally own a snowspeeder.

I feel the stickers on this set are optional though we did apply them for the sake of completeness. The finished build looks nice, though I feel more orange accents would be appreciated and more accurate.

I do have some minor complaints and they're not all directly related to this build:

i) The 20th anniversary text on the back of the Lando figure is very ugly. Something much more subtle would have sufficed, IMO. I'm glad he has a cape to cover up the text.

ii) IMO, this set is overpriced at MSRP. I waited until it was 20% off before purchasing. It certainly did not take long for the usual suspects to offer a discount soon after release. Is my perception of higher MSRP on some sets these days to allow retailers some wiggle room?

iii) I wish there was space either in the cockpit or via an external clip where Luke's lightsaber could be stashed. I do appreciate the storage space at the rear for blasters but when Luke is in the speeder, we just don't want to lose his lightsaber.

Overall at the discounted price the set is worthwhile and I'm happy to own it. The throwback Lando figure is nice to have though I have to say I prefer a more recent version of the minifigure that we own. As I was not a Lego customer when these sets first came out the 20th anniversary figures don't hold any nostalgia value for me so these are all about the actual build.

Looking forward to purchasing at least one more of the 20th anniversary sets, particularly the Slave 1, as that is also a vehicle we would love to own.
