The other battle pack released in Jan/Feb 2012 for the LEGO Star Wars series is the Endor Trooper & Imperial Trooper Battle Pack (9489). However, this set only contains 77 pieces but also retails for $12.99. This is the other battle pack along with the Elite Clone Trooper & Commando Droid Battle Pack that features two different factions.
In the set, we get four minifigures: a Stormtrooper, a Scout Trooper, and two Endor Rebel Troopers. The Stormtrooper has a new torso piece but everything else is the same. The Scout Trooper is the same as the ones before. They come with a standard blaster and a blaster pistol. One big difference is that these new troopers have printed faces as seen below. The Endor Rebel Troopers have have all new torsos pieces and are a different shade of green as from the 2009 version. One of the troopers get a blaster pistol and a pair of binoculars while the other gets a blaster rifle.
The Endor Trooper & Imperial Trooper Battle Pack comes with a speeder bike and an Endor tree hideout. The speeder bike is similar to the one in the Ewok Attack set. Nothing much has changed except for the bottom of the speeder. The main feature of the set is the tree hideout post. Although there have been many complaints about the flick-fire missiles of the Star Wars sets, the one in this set works very well. There is also a gray fence where LEGO describes it as a weapons rack.
The LEGO Star Wars Endor Rebel Trooper & Imperial Trooper Battle Pack is a very good set and I like it a lot. I also think this battle pack would work very well with The Battle of Endor (8038) as well as the Ewok Attack set if you are building MOC’s. Personally, there are no real complaints from me. I would recommend it.
