Review: 30380 Kylo Ren's Shuttle

Posted by ,

Kylo Ren's Upsilon-class Shuttle is one of the most distinctive craft from the Sequel Trilogy and has already been depicted four times in LEGO form. The first two were designed using concept artwork so suffered from a number of inaccuracies but every subsequent version has improved upon its predecessor.

30380 Kylo Ren's Shuttle may therefore be the best rendition yet, despite containing just 33 pieces. Its black and trans-red colour scheme looks superb and the folding wings work very well in relation to the movies, allowing you to alter its flight configuration.

2018 LEGO Inside Tour report (2)

Posted by ,

Here is part two of Brickset member Fuddruckus' 2018 Inside Tour report...

Back-tracking a bit to earlier in day two, the tour of the factory was absolutely incredible. I have seen it in documentaries and pictures, and as someone who works with cameras and video for a living, I must say that viewing the moulding machines on a screen does not do them justice.

It is a stunning scene, and my words simply cannot convey the magnitude of the enormous operation. As with many of our other stops, the Inside Tour crew provided us with mementos of the factory visit. They truly have thought through just about every facet of the extraordinary experience.
