A Train Straight Out of the Star Wars UniverseI'm going to skip over the fact that the other half (the bottom) of this thing was left off, because being a practical person myself, I understand there's almost no way to make that work and still be affordable.
That being said, I'll begin with the minifigures. The long awaited Rangetroopers are finally here, and are not disappointing at all. Their unique cloth fur pieces and specially molded helmets, as well as unique white blasters, all contribute to make an elite, deadly looking Stormtrooper that might actually hit something! Their print is excellent, and they look like a lethal cold-weather trooper.
The Imperial gunner is average, with a gun-metal gray body and the same cloth fur piece for warmth. His helmet is the same mold from the battle pack from 2014 I believe, and overall is not too exceptional.
Han solo looks great in his fur overcoat and goggles, as well as Chewbacca with goggles printed on his face - the main reason I bought this set was for the exclusive figs, and they didn't disappoint.
The engine half was very well detailed and a very sturdy build, the most monotonous being the assembly of the treads, which roll very well and don't stick at all, although there is potential to get hairs or fuzz stuck in the rubber tires that run the treads if you run it on carpet or something like that. The circular armor panels open to reveal blaster storage, or a crawl space for a stowaway figure, which is very neat. The dual cockpits are really cool and awesomely detailed, making me wish I could crawl into it myself! The sticker panels are very nice, though identical, and the tan seats look very nice compared to the dark-gray vehicle. My only issue is that it didn't come with an extra couple drivers, which would've been appropriate given the high price point to begin with.
The train car is pretty cool as well, with a boxcar-ish appearance that still resembles a Star Wars vehicle. The car is open-ended on either side, allowing Han and Chewie to run straight through the cars if they wish, and the detail on the ends is phenomenal. The side panels do raise, revealing four crates of coaxium, as well as a ladder leading to a hatch on the roof. You can open this hatch and have a figure stand on two studs below the roof, so as to appear like he's peering out from on the ladder. The car rolls very well on four rubber wheels underneath the vehicle, and the hitch to connect them is very secure. (I used the spare black technic knob to seal off the top of the train hitch instead of just the bottom, since I don't plan on having my AT-Hauler take off the car anytime soon.)
Despite all the pros of this set, it is still very small at 622 pieces for $89 USD being a steep price to pay. Overall it isn't bad, although that price would have been justified by a few more pilots/gunners.

Heist on vandor!I Highly anticipated Lego making this set after seeing the film, especially the range troopers appearing in minifigure form as I already had the range trooper buildable figure and they’re probably the most interesting ‘troops’ for a while.
Though it has to be said, the Solo movie and the Lego Solo movie sets in my opinion have the best range of characters since rogue one!
The build while monotonous, was interesting, I think once you’re ‘Lego-minded’ you pre-empt some parts and make two at the same time, saving time.
I actually made two conveyex sets at the same time so I can join them back to back and create more of a scene, so sometimes was making four of the same part!
Loved all the side panels and hatches that open, great you can move the gun turrets position too.
Of course the genius thing is the range troopers CAN actually walk along the sides as per the film without falling off.
The figures, great versions of Han Solo and chewy, both with goggles, decently printed driver with fur over his shoulders and you get two super range troopers complete with furred uniform. The only thing I changed were their guns making the range troopers rifles more like the buildable figures gun.
A great set, expensive, but fun to add becket from the cloud riders set and val and Rio with the AT hauler.. awesome!
