Star Wars: The Old and the New!

We are back with a new Star Wars: The Old and the New! Today we will be taking a look at the two different Landspeeder sets released in the Star Wars theme.

Both of these sets depict one scenes from the movie where Obi Wan and Luke travel the desserts of Tatooine.

First we have the old set 7110 released in 1999. This set consists of 49 pieces and 2 minifigures, Obi Wan and Luke.

This is a small set that actually looks a lot like the landspeeder from the movie. On the down side this set does not include C3PO and R2-D2 who, in the movie, travel with them.

Here we have the new and improved landspeeder released in 2010 set number 8092. This set has 163 pieces and 5 minifigures. This is a big improvement from the old set, although the price is a bit higher as well.

In this set we get the new flesh versions of Obi Wan and Luke, C3PO, R2-D2, one Stormtrooper and a sentry droid. The sentry droid does not really count as a minifig in my opinion, its just a few pieces and nothing special.

The detail of the landspeeder has increased a lot from the old set and together with the extra minifigs this set makes a good improvement over the old one.
