Description

8092 5

The set in action.

The speeder is small in size, comparable to the Republic Snow Speeder in the set 8085. The design is not symmetrical, as the left engine is missing its housing. The speeder itself seats two minifigures, and for controls, the landspeeder has a single steering wheel. At the back, the top engine and the small platform that it rests on, can be removed to reveal a hidden compartment used for storing the included lightsabers. It is functional, albeit small, and requires the blades to be removed from the hilts before the weapons can fit within the compartment.

An alternate view of the set

Of the six minifigures included in this set, four are exclusive. Luke Skywalker was previously available with this design in the 2008 set 10188 Death Star, but is only available here with pupils printed on his face. The same goes for Ben Kenobi, who also has a slightly redesigned face. Both come with blue chrome-handled lightsabers. The Sandtrooper features a new, black shoulder pauldron and a new backpack, dissimilar to the standard Sandtroopers which only have an orange pauldron. This set is one of very few ways to get the newest version of R2-D2 and C-3PO for less money than some of the larger sets. The Sentry Droid is entirely brick-built, and features a clear stand to appear as if floating or flying.



Background

Luke's landspeeder was a civilian X-34 landspeeder manufactured by SoroSuub. The speeder featured holographic displays, a computer for navigation, and many repulsorlift counterbalances for a smooth, easy ride. The speeder had no weapons mounts and retailed for roughly 10,500 credits. The X-34's average altitude during travel was about 10 cm above the surface of the planet. Luke purchased his speeder from Jabba the Hutt. Interest in the X-34 waned when SoroSuub released the newer, sleeker model, the XP-38 landspeeder. Luke Skywalker sold his old X-34 for 2,000 credits in order to pay the fare for Han Solo to fly him and Ben Kenobi off Tatooine in the Millennium Falcon.
