• Redesigned Star Wars Sets

    Featured BrickList Compiled by stevotherad. Updated 01 July 2014. Contains 114 sets.
    This is a list of every Star Wars ship that has been re-made as of 2011. It does not include sets with ships that have been re-released, but not changed (7140 X-Wing as 7142 for example). It also does not include ships that have been repackaged with different or more ships, but not redesigned (7146 Tie Fighter repackaged in 10131 Tie Collection or 7166 Imperial Shuttle in 7264 Imperial Inspection). It will not include mini-scale or midi-scale sets, only system/minifigure. Ultimate Collector Series sets are also omitted, UNLESS they are minifigure scale. Sets redesigned for the Clone Wars TV series are inlcuded. If a ship is part of a larger set (the redesigned AT-ST in the Battle of Endor, for example) it will be inlcuded. The purpose of this list is to assess LEGO's redesigns and determine whether they are improvements or not. It also serves as general reference.

2004 version.
An improvement in design, but the color is wrong. Good for the sandtrooper, Greedo, and Dewback figures, but not much else.

2010 version.
Most detailed and movie accurate version. A tad-bit overpriced, but delivers on the minifigures.

1999 version.
The speeder bike is very common throughout the Star Wars universe and various versions have been converted to LEGO form. 7101 Lightsaber Duel, 7103 Jedi Duel, 7113 Tusken Raider Encounter, 4482 AT-TE, 4483 AT-AT, 7261 Clone Turbo Tank, 7655 Clone Trooper Battle Pack, 7676 Republic Attack Gunship, 8015 Assassin Droid Battle Pack, 8084 Snowtrooper Battle Pack, 7868 Mace Windu's Jedi Starfighter, and Both 2011 Battle Packs all include some variation of this vehicle. The one which is most well-known and remembered is the one that is riden by Scout Troopers (and Luke and Leia) on Endor in Return of the Jedi. It has been released in 5 versions.

2002 version.
Utilizes LEGO's newly introduced slope pieces, good set for the minifigs (Ewoks!).
*This same design of the speeder bike was used in several other sets, but with different colors. The 4482 AT-TE has a dark red (republic red) one hidden in it and the 4483 AT-AT has a white one.

2009 version.
The best in my opinion. Most movie accurate and most fun to build.
*7676 Republic Gunship from the previous year has Plo Koon riding a speeder bike with the same design and 8084 Snowtrooper Battle Pack from the following year has one in white instead of brown.

2009 version.
The worst as far as movie accurateness goes. Still a great set for two reasons: cheap way to get stormtroopers and some interesting building techniques utilizing unusual pieces.

2011 version.
Looks very similar to the Battle of Endor one, maybe a brick or two is different. I haven't had a chance to build it and the instructions are not up, so I'm not exactly sure what the differences are, if any. Thought I still include it though.
*Interesting note: This set is almost exactly similar to 7139L They both have the same name, they each include two Ewoks and a scout trooper plus a speeder bike, and they both have a trap thingy. But the new one costs twice as much as the old one. What's up with that! You even get a glider thingy and a stormtrooper in the old one!

2012 version.
This 2012 once again includes the perennial speeder bike. It doesn't look like much has changed, but obviously there is a demand for this ship so can you blame them for releasing it every other year?

1999 version.
This was my favorite of the 13 original Star War sets (patriotic, right?). It is still my favorite version of the ship even if the color is wrong. The Snowspeeder is one of LEGO's favorite sets to redesign. It has seen 4 incarnations in system scale (I wouldn't be surprised if another is included in the upcoming 2011 set 7879 Hoth Echo Base)

2004 version.
2004 was the year of redesigns, repackages, and mini sets and the Rebel Snowspeeder, being one of the most famous ships from the movies, was bound to be re-done. This one is sleeker looking and done in white, but with the same accesories and figures as the 1999 one (they even almost have the same piece count). I think the 1999 version catches the ragtag rebel feek of the original trilogy movies better.

Haven't had the pleasure of building this one yet, but looks a lot like the 2007 version. Different stickers is the only difference I can find.

1999 version.
Arguably the most famous ship from Star Wars. The X-wing has been redesigned only once. The first one is a classic no doubt, but the second version is a definite improvement. The 7140 X-wing was re-released in 2002 as 7142.

2003 version.
This version boasts a larger size, interesting building techniques, and a cool gear system that allows you to "Lock S-Foils in attack position".
*The same ship was repackaged with different minifigs in 2006 as set 6212. 6212 is STILL available (as of May 2011) from shop@home, making it, perhaps, the longest continuously available Star Wars set.

2012 version.
The third remake of the X-wing. There wasn't much to improve upon, but it looks like they used some of the same building techniques. The transition to attack position is a lot snappier this time (you don't have to turn the gear, it is instant). The blasters are longer and it seems to be more proportionate to the movie version. Also: Porkins and a new astromech droid!

1999 version of Y-wing and Darth Vader's TIE
The centerpoint of the 1999 Star Wars line, and the first set to include Darth Vader! Both ships included have been redesigned and improved. It took LEGO a while, though.
*This set has been re-released in 2002 as 7142 and again in 2004 as 7262.

2012 version.
Third remake of the Original Trilogy ship, fourth remake of the ship design. This one is very similar to the second 2007 version, I really can't decide which is better. I guess this one, because it has better figs.

A boring, boring set because of lack of minifigs. The wing pieces are quites useful with a little ingenuity, tough (I made them a roof to a stable model once). This ship has been redesigned thrice.
