Micro Review: Desert Invasion from Micro Machines: Star Wars by Hasbro
* Kylo Ren's command shuttle is the successor to the Imperial Lambda-class shuttles from the Original Trilogy, although I do wish this model had been crafted with the wings down. I love the silver paneling on the wings and the red cockpit. This is a great vehicle and definitely the highlight of this set (even though you can pick this ship up in other sets).
* The Resistance X-Wing is a pretty cool ship. I like the version with the open S-foils better but this one isn't bad and adds some variety to your fleet. The paint isn't too bad, either. While some of these vehicles look more "plasticy" than Galoob's efforts the actual sculpting seems a bit sharper. I like how the S-foils meet on these newer model X-Wings which definitely seems like a realistic upgrade from the Original Trilogy models.
I've reviewed plenty of other Star Wars Micro Machines from both Hasbro and Galoob, including:
Micro Machines: Star Wars by Galoob (1994)
Classic Characters (2nd Edition)
Micro Machines: Star Wars by Hasbro (2015)
Droid Army Ambush
First Order Star Destroyer Playset
First Order Stormtrooper Playset
Millennium Falcon Playset
