LEGO 75265 Star Wars T-16 Skyhopper Vs. Bantha Microfighter

LEGO 75265 Star Wars T-16 Skyhopper Vs. Bantha Microfighter

With so many different Star Wars Lego sets, there needs to be something unique for each one. For me, in this set, its the Batha, and the Tusken Raider. When I was just a 7 year old boy I saw Star Wars when it first came out in the theater, and in one of the first scenes of the movie, young Luke was attacked by them and it scared me a lot. Ever since then, I’ve had a healthy respect for these sand creatures.

LEGO 75265 Release Date

The T-16 Skyhopper Vs. Bantha Microfighter LEGO set is scheduled to be released early in January 2020. Based on previous releases however this set might be released on Dec 26, the day after Christmas. I base this of off previous releases in earlier years, as well as the fact that some of get a little extra money for the holidays, and LEGO wants us to spend it on them – which I always do. This is not a VIP only release as far as know.  I expect this series of sets to be available at both the official LEGO store, as well as 3rd party retailers like Amazon, Target, and Walmart.

LEGO 75265 Pieces & Minifigures

There are 198 pieces in this set, including  2 minifigures. Basically good guys vs bad guys. The T-16 pilot comes in a red flight suit with a blaster, and a silver helmet, and the Raider comes with the unique molded head, and his staff, plus a brick built Bantha beast.

LEGO 75265 Review

Right now as of the time of writing this blog post, this set is not yet released. When it is, I’ll buy it and write my thoughts here. I’m really looking forward to the Tusken Raider Minifigure.

LEGO 75267 Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack

LEGO 75267 Mandalorian Battle Pack Minifigures

Now that Disney has purchased and is running the Star Wars Franchise, there is a new Series on the Disney+ channel, The Mandalorian. I want to let you know that this post might have some spoilers for the series, so if you haven’t seen it yet, you have been warned.

The Mandalorian is a new series based on the Star Wars movies. At this moment, I don’t know if it happens before or after the timeframe of the movies, but I have a strong feeling it happens before. This is because they use the same uniforms as Jango and Boba Fett, but they don’t follow the same rules that guide the Mandalorian guild. I’ll tell a little more about that in the Minifigure section below.

LEGO 75267 Release Date

The Mandalorian Battle Pack LEGO set is scheduled to be released early in January 2020. Based on previous releases however this set might be released on Dec 26, the day after Christmas. I base this of off previous releases in earlier years, as well as the fact that some of get a little extra money for the holidays, and LEGO wants us to spend it on them – which I always do. This is not a VIP only release as far as know.  I expect this series of sets to be available at both the official LEGO store, as well as 3rd party retailers like Amazon, Target, and Walmart.

LEGO 75267 Pieces & Minifigures

There are 102 pieces in this set, including  4 minifigures. Each is a bit different and LEGO is calling them Mandalorian Warriors (on the box). According to the show, the armor is custom and every Mandalorian’s is a little bit different. And one of the tenants of their way of life is to never take the armor off. Also called Beskar, the armor has several different parts, the helmet, shoulder pieces, breast plate, forearm guards, and other pieces, and can be made of different materials. That’s what is represented here, in this set.

You can see four different helmet colors – some with battle scars: orange, white, blue, and green. The torso and leg pieces are painted in a similar, matching color.

LEGO 75264 Review

Right now as of the time of writing this blog post, this set is not yet released. What I like about these battle packs is that you get a lot of minifigures for not a lot of money. In addition to the 4 Mandalore, there is also a small speeder ship and a cannon station Plus a bunch of stud shooters included, according to the photos.

LEGO 75266 Star Wars Sith Trooper Battle Pack

LEGO 75266 Sith Troopers Battle Pack

If you are looking for a lot of minifigures in an inexpensive set, the Star Wars Battle Packs are the way to go. As of right now, there are two LEGO battle packs scheduled to be released in 2020. This one, the Sith Trooper Battle Pack, and the other, the Mandalorian Battle Pack. I was able to find this one on the day after Christmas at one of my local stores. If you follow me on Instagram, you know which one.

Every year LEGO releases a lot of New Star Wars Sets. In 2019 they made 59 sets (according to Bricklink) ranging from the single minifigure polybags to the Ultimate Collector Series Millenuim Falcon. I’m expecting a similar number of new LEGO Star Wars sets in 202 if not a few more because of the release of the latest Movie Episode 9, The Rise of Skywalker. As they come out I’ll buy each one and review it, so be sure to bookmark, or even better subscribe to my site.

LEGO 75266 Release Date

I got a copy of The Sith Troopers Battle Pack LEGO set on the day after Christmas 2019. This is not a VIP release. I expect this series of sets to be available at both the official LEGO store, as well as 3rd party retailers like Amazon, Target, and Walmart.

LEGO 75266 Pieces & Minifigures

There are 105 pieces in this set, including  4 minifigures. Three are Sith Troopers and the 4th is a Sith shuttle pilot. Two of the red Sith troopers have backpacks and the 3rd does not.

LEGO 75266 Price

I expect this set to be priced at $14.99 US and will be on sale starting January 1, 2020.

LEGO 75266 Review

This is a fun little set that is super easy to build. Literally the only reason to get it is the price to minifigure ratio. for less than 15 bucks (or even less if you find it on sale) you get 4 minifigures. That’s a great deal. Perfect for building an army. I don’t know of a cheaper way to do that, actually.

The transport ship is very easy to build. I think I had it all together in less than 10 minutes. There is a cool feature that I’ve never seen before where there is a little black piece at the back of the stud shooter that makes for a great gun stalk, and then gets mounted at the front of the transport ship.
