Lego Star Wars AT-ST Raider (75254) Review

I absolutely love The Mandalorian TV Show on Disney+ so It’s only suiting that I start off with a review of one of the Mandalorian Lego sets. Now granted, there aren’t many sets on the market yet. But for those that are, the LEGO AT-ST Raider is THE set to have at the moment. And to be honest, I was not disappointed at all! Now I haven’t actually build a normal AT-ST yet so there is not much to compare, but as for a first time build, I think this is a great set!

Minifigures

Let’s talk minifigures first. You get four minifigures in this set and of course, the main man is Mando himself. All minifigures have a great amount of detail and Mando is no exception. The helmet, the body, and leg prints all look quite striking. What I also really like is that his head is just black. Mandalorians normally don’t take off their helmets in public so this is only fitting. This is the only set you can get Mando in at this moment in time.

Cara Dune also looks the part and she comes with dual printed faces. One normal and one angry face. A neat feature is that her hair stays in place and can’t move when put on her head so everything stays into place.

Both Klatooinian Raiders are really cool as well. They both have the same face and legs but other than that they look different. Both have different guns, some sort of shoulder/neck armor piece, and different prints on their bodies.

The Build

The first thing I noticed when opening the box and looking at the part was how great the color scheme is. I absolutely love the brown and red colors and they complement the grey very well. It just looks menacing and cool.

The build is really fun and has some interesting techniques which I liked. It’s quite a bit more “technical” than I thought.

Features

This set has not only great display value for adults like me but also a lot of playability options for kids. The cockpit rotates which you can do either by hand or moving the knob on the back of the vehicle.

The LEGO AT-ST Raider also had two different rotating side guns and main guns that go up and down. It also has some armored plating in the “eyes” which can open and close. And last but not least it has spring-loaded shooters that are visible, but fairly well integrated.

The cockpit can of course open up and is very spacious. You very easily put in a minifigure. The hatch also opens and when you click one had of a figure to a handlebar on the side it actually looks like the figure is coming out on top!

One of my favorite things in this AT-ST is the legs. Of course, they can move a bit, but don’t expect too much as the set is a bit top-heavy. The things that really jump out besides the awesome colors are the cables and more technical pieces that are showing. To me, that looks amazing!


My Thoughts

This LEGO set is great if you are a fan of The Mandalorian and just a really good display piece or play piece. It has lots of features and building it is really fun. The minifigures are great and, at the time of writing, one of a kind. There are however just a bit too many stickers. I’m not a huge fan and I might just lack practice but there are a lot. Just overall this is a cool build.

Pros:

  • Fun build
  • Minifigures look awesome
  • Great color scheme
  • Lots of features
  • Details look amazing

Cons:

  • A lot of stickers
  • Slightly unstable (top-heavy)
