lego star wars #75135 Obi-Wan's jedi starfighter

This should be the only set so far Lego solely built for Obi-Wan's Eta-2 Starfighter.

It is cool to have a new Obi-Wan with a headset. The wings are nicely built to provide the rigid structure and also weight to play nicely. Even R4-P17 can be fit nicely compared to the previous build. Some older one can only put the head on the wing while later run can only leave the legs of R2-D2 hanging. Higher R4 can also fulfill what the movie shows which it was destroyed by buzz droids.

The cockpit is a bit disappointing. Obi-Wan cannot sit straightly. There is no proper place to hold his lightsaber. That's such a shame. The worse thing should be the amount of stickers used. Why does Lego really like stickers but the size cannot fully fit the brick?

lego star wars #75136 droid escape droid

This is one of the sets with both C-3PO and R2-D2. It should be the one most following the storyline which both droids are captured by Jawas.

Compared to previous 2 sets, this set is with most details. The engines rotable and the case can be opened. There are two different printings on the Jawas. And also a printed death star. But there are a lot of stickers which need skills to stick. Especially to make the stickers of the case in sync and also stick the panel correctly in a small piece of lego.
