Every year, LEGO releases a new LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series set for the May the 4th celebration and for 2022, it is Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder (75341). The set has 1,890 pieces and retails for $199.99.
There are only two minifigures in the set, Luke Skywalker and C-3PO. Luke is in his white tunic that he wears on Tatooine. There’s nothing too fancy here but there is printing of his belt that goes around the torso. He has a double sided head with a smile on one side and a frown on the other. He does have a lightsaber and macrobinoculars as an accessory.
C-3PO already has a new design for the Death Star Trash Compactor (75339) but he get another exclusive minifigure in this set. This version of C-3PO has a new dual molded leg with some silver on one of the legs.
The first part of the build isn’t too interesting as you get the frame of the Landspeeder set in place. There are a whopping 68 nougat curved sloped pieces on the sides to give it the shape.
Bags 2-4 add on to the frame with some interesting techniques used for the sides especially with the use of the nougat fender pieces. The construction of the cockpit is also partially built with the sloped seats. There’s also a power circuit access in the front of the cockpit that uses some skates.
Bag 5 adds on to the frame with more plates to give the frame more stability. The cockpit is also filled out using dark red tiles and curved pieces. The bottom part of the middle thruster is also built here.
For Bag 6, we pop on the new large windshield piece that fits perfectly around the cockpit. There are also a lot of curved slopes that go on the sides for more shaping of the Landspeeder. If we weren’t building the X-34 Landspeeder, the build would probably suffice as another speeder at this point of the build.
Bag 7 gives the parts for the front assembly which connects to the Landspeeder using some ball joints. It is then secured using a dark red tile in the top. In addition, there are eight flex tubes that go around the front for the repulsor vents. They aren’t actually connected to anything but are just slotted in the small area.
Next up, we build one of the side turbine engines. It doesn’t look like it but it is a pretty complex build using a series of microbuild that combine together for the final result. This particular turbine has the exposed wires which is represented by the whip and other flex tubes.
Bag 9 has the other side turbine and is built very similar to the other one. The only difference is this one isn’t damaged and uses stickers for the detailing around it.
Next we have the middle turbine which is almost the same as the right one.
Lastly, we have the Technic display stand that allows the Landspeeder to sit on as well as the minifigures on the front. The stickered plaque gives some information about the X-34. There are two slots underneath the Landspeeder that allows the stand to go in.
Overall, the LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder (75341) is a pretty fun build with some interesting building techniques and it didn’t seem too repetitive in any areas. The reveal came with mixed reactions as fans questioned if we really need another Landspeeder when there are so many other vehicles in the Star Wars Universe.
