Review: 75180 Rathtar Escape

Posted by ,

The release of the first eleven sets based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now just a little over two months away but there are still scenes and characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens which have yet to be represented in LEGO form. 75180 Rathtar Escape goes some way to rectify this, depicting the monstrous Rathtars as they rampage through the corridors of the Eravana.

Not only does the set feature two brick-built Rathtars which look brilliant but this is also the first appearance of Bala-Tik and the Guavian Enforcers who travel with him. These bright red soldiers represent one of my favourite character designs from the 2015 movie so to see them as minifigures is a treat.

Spider-Man and Venom BrickHeadz!

The set will be available only to a lucky few attendees of San Diego Comic Con, which is held on 20-22 July this year.

As usual you'll have to jump through hoops to get one: attendees must first visit the Pavilion Terrace to participate in a random drawing to qualify to buy beginning as early as 6 a.m.

The numbers 15 and 16 on the box suggest that another box of two (13 and 14) might also be available there, assuming the numbers follow on from the 12 widely released ones.

It contains 144 pieces and will be priced at $40.

Woody, our man in China, has once again been scouring the local markets for LEGO rip-offs and has sent through a bumper crop of pictures of his latest findings.

Somewhat surprisingly, the clone manufacturers are showing signs of innovation and the design of a couple of the sets is almost half-decent...

LEGO hasn't published a digital version yet but I'm sure will do soon.
