Effective armies within the Star Wars universe are often diverse, consisting of many different kinds of troops who occupy various roles. Star Wars: The Last Jedi introduced a few of these specialised units within the First Order army, some of whom appear in 75197 First Order Specialists Battle Pack.

Only a couple of years have passed since the Sequel Trilogy began and we have already seen two Battle Packs focused upon the First Order. Those previous sets were both excellent so I have high expectations for this one, especially since the price in the UK has increased to £12.99 while the US price of $14.99 remains the same.

Please note that this review is spoiler free.

70920 Egghead Mech Food Fight includes two such lesser known characters, Egghead and the Condiment King. Both villains are fairly obscure but appeared in The LEGO Batman Movie along with most of Batman's other enemies. I have therefore been looking forward to building this set very much indeed, not only because it features such unusual minifigures but also due to the impressive design and delightfully consistent theming of Egghead's bizarre mech!
