4500 Rebel Snowspeeder was a LEGO Set released in 2004 as part of the Classic Star Wars line. Included are Luke Skywalker (Rebel Pilot), Dak Ralter, a Snowspeeder, a Blaster Turret and a Hoth Rebel Trooper. It contains 214 pieces.

Description

Speeder

The Rebel Snowspeeder is built from beige, orange and white parts, as well as grey, and is based off the movie appearance in Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. It wields two laser cannons on the wings and a machine gun at the back, as well as a grappling hook. Two minifigures can fit inside the cockpit, the glass of which being the same piece as many of the X-Wing cockpits. The laser cannons and the parts they connect on to, if removed, would make the wings flat. There are two 'flaps' on the top of the wings' backs, which, in the box art, are moving up and down. Luke's lightsaber fits in the cockpit. Though the set appears to have stickers, in the building instructions there is nothing about stickers, which probably means that the 'stickers' are in actuality markings.

Turret

The blaster turret is made from fifteen pieces, and is basically a stand with a firing scanner-like dish. A black staff protrudes from the centre of the dish, and the dish itself can move up and down.

Minifigures

Luke Skywalker is included in his Rebel Pilot variant, with the red-marked helmet, yellow skin, and the orange suit with the white markings. Dak Ralter wears the same uniform, but with a blue-marked helmet, and he has the same face as standard Rebel Pilots. The last minifigure, the Hoth Rebel Trooper, uses a black machine gun and wears a totally white helmet like the Anakin's podracer helmet. His belt, hands and backpack are also white, and his arms and legs are grey. The suit is an older version of the newer Hoth Rebel Troopers.

Background

Both the Snowspeeders and the blaster turrets took place in the Hoth Battle. Named the 'Rogue Squadron', the snowspeeders under Luke Skywalker flew into battle against the monstrous AT-ATs invading their base. Most were destroyed, but they succeeded in taking down three of the five AT-ATs, and according to the Episode V book, one of them was that of General Veers, the leader of the attack. When Luke's speeder was destroyed after crashing into the ground, the young Jedi trainee took down the fourth. After the battle, the remaining Snowspeeders did not take part in any further episode.
