8091 Republic Swamp Speeder

I got this set for Christmas, and avoided the large price tag for the small set. Don't buy it for full price. Anyway, the build of the set is easy (although I made a mistake - count the studs!), but is quite cool. The design is overall better than the previous version, with more detail and functions. The fan is good, and it is cool how its housing moves with the guns. The guns move from side to side, but they should move up and down like on the old Swamp Speeder. They are also flick-missiles, which is just weird. The sides can actually hold several troopers, making it a useful transport vehicle. The Barriss Offee minifigure is exclusive and great if you get The Battle For Geonosis with Luminara Unduli. The redesigned Phase 2 Trooper is very detailed, but does not fit with my collection of Clone Wars Phase 1 Clones. The 3 droids give you something to fight, and are welcome. Overall, it is a nice addition to a Clone Army, but not worth the full price.


Nice minifigures, detailed vehicle which can carry troops


Guns don't move much, and the set is expensive for its size
