It’s the Resistance… they’re here! Hey everyone, today I have a review of 75131 Resistance Trooper Battle Pack! This was a 2016 set that retailed for $12.99 in the US, £11.99 in the UK, $22.99 in Australia, and $24.99 in New Zealand.
There are four minifigures included in the set. One is a Resistance Officer and three are just regular Resistance Troopers.
The Resistance Officer included is quite nice. I do like his new printed torso and his hairpiece is not bad. Funnily enough, his face is reused from a LEGO Imperial. He is armed with a stud shooter, though I would think that officers like him would not likely be in the heat of battle too often.
The three Resistance Troopers included are quite good. I really like their new two-piece helmet mold, and their torso printing is good too. Their heads are nothing impressive but I appreciate variation (no Angry Clone) and their pants are all dark grey. They are all armed with stud shooters but they have an extended stock using a black tap piece. Oh, and their helmets’ chin guards can be folded up and down.
The speeder included is… not bad. It is on the smaller side of Battle Pack ships, but definitely bigger than 2016’s First Order Battle Pack’s turbolaser.
Two minifigures can be attached to the speeder. A 1×2 plate with vertical bar is used (not perfectly) to represent a joystick. The cannon above can be gripped by a minifigure, but then it turns awkwardly to the side.
I like the two offset 1×1 trans light blue cones at the front and the orange engines at the back. The 2×2 yellow plate, however, looks a bit strange.
The cannon can be tilted up and down. There is a stud shooter on top. I am not a huge fan of the cannon, as the exposed studs make it rather unfinished, but it does its job I guess.
In conclusion, how good is this set? Well, the figures all use stud shooters, the speeder is perhaps a little small, and the cannon is a bit unfinished, but the set does what it should do: it’s a great army builder and the minifigures will definitely help you build up your Resistance army.
Personal Rating: 3/5
