LEGO Star Wars Resistance Transport Pod Review (LEGO)

LEGO Star Wars Resistance Transport Pod
What It Is

This is the LEGO Star Wars 75176 Resistance Transport Pod, a 294-piece LEGO construction set based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This new building set features three LEGO Star Wars mini figs: Finn, BB-8 and a new character from the Last Jedi: Rose. 

The vehicle: 

The Resistance Transport Pod, although small in size (roughly five-inches long and four-inches wide) packs in a lot of features. Prep the vehicle for flight and fight, by readying its projectiles and stud launcher. Place Finn and Rose in the cockpit and stick BB-8 in the back of the pod. Then fire off projectiles with the turn of a wheel and/or aim your stud shooter weapons and fire. 

The figures:

Rose is a totally new character to the Star Wars universe. Played by actress Kelly Marie Tran in the movie, we dont know a ton about her character as of yet, but here are a few takeaways from this minifigure. Rose is part of the Resistance, so shes got the Resistance look to her with a khaki-colored uniform with metallic accents and blaster in one hand. Rose features a unique hairpiece with flips on either side pulled back into a ponytail. 

Finn features an updated look from those weve seen in past Force Awakens LEGO sets. Hes still got his jacket passed on to him from Poe but his pants have a gun-metal look to them. 

BB-8 is a two-piece  version of the Droid

Both figures also have some great facial expressions to bring their personalities through. Finn rocks his signature smile on one side, coupled with a more terrified expression on the other. We can only speculate right now what in the new movie is causing this face, hopefully it's not anymore Rathtar encounters. Rose, likewise, features a content look on one side and an angry look on the other. Perhaps her angry face is caused by being somewhat dragged into an adventure with Finn and BB-8 that involved this Transport Pod? 

Is It Fun?

Once pieced together, this vehicle and minifigures set offers the same great post-build play youd want and expect from any LEGO Star Wars set but we love that there are so many great features for roleplay built right into this small scale. Plus the inclusion of a brand new Star Wars character adds to its collectibility. 

Who It’s For

The LEGO Star Wars Resistance Transport Pod is for ages 8 and up from LEGO. It will appeal to fans of construction and building as well as Star Wars LEGO fans and collectors for play and display. 

What To Be Aware Of

This build took our LEGO builder roughly 30-45 minutes to put together. Building times will vary.
