Review: LEGO Star Wars Microfighters AT-AT

With AT-AT™ being one of people’s favourite transport modes from Star Wars, it is excellent that there is a Microfighters adaptation of the larger AT-AT™. I am really a fan of the Microfighters series, as I think it is a great way for younger LEGO collectors to build their collection at an affordable price for parents.

Pieces: 88
Set Number: 75075 
Minifigures: AT-AT™ Driver
RRP: £8.99/$9.99

The fourth in the second series of six Microfighter sets, this smaller version is actually the second-smallest set, however it is actually really cute, and depending on your positioning of the main vehicle itself, can actually be mistaken for an oversized puppy being ridden around by an angry-looking Imperial stormtrooper.

The AT-AT™ Driver

LEGOStarWars_ATAT_Pilot

The AT-AT™ Driver is a standard size LEGO figure. The angry features etched on his face mirror the expression expected from someone in his position. His head, however, is mostly covered by the very detailed helmet. The one downside to this minifigure is the helmet’s inability to actually stay where it is supposed to. If knocked, it can easily detach from the Driver’s head. The printing on the figure is okay, with nothing too detailed yet still managing to look the part. The minifigure’s aggressive-looking character is completed by the presence of his handheld gun.

LEGO have provided us with a figure that allows us to get stuck in on the action. Once completed, the handler has the delight of moving the figure from A to B by adjusting each of its flexible limbs in succession. The legs have a good degree of rotation so when being played with by children and adults alike, and there is little risk of detaching the legs when moved too far in any direction. However, were that ever to happen, thankfully they are relatively simple to reattach.

AT-AT™

LEGOStarWars_ATAT_Vehicle

This set is comprised of a pilot ready for action with ready to go missiles on either side of the cockpit. The main attraction of the set is the AT-AT™, with the front facing ‘head’ of the piece being maneuverable 2 clicks north and 2 clicks south. The body is the largest section of the 88-piece set and is quite simple in its construction. Some would think that would be a bad point, but it actually prevents the overall look of the piece from being too busy. The microfighter possesses none of the stickers that have been appearing on some recent productions.

Along with my seven-year-old daughter, the building processes of the AT-AT™ took approximately 30 minutes. It is a successful play figure, flexible legs that are not easy to detach and children and adults alike can use their imagination to create scenarios and act out battle scenes using flick missiles and movable parts. Get someone else to find the missiles around the lounge though.

The Set Overall

LEGOStarWars_ATAT_Set

I have seen the larger version of the AT-AT, and while this is obviously a smaller-scale version, it still stays true to the original model. The minifig looks the part, even with its less-than-secure helmet, and the vehicle itself is a simple, yet solid, build. Like many others than came before, it’s an inexpensive yet worthwhile addition to a LEGO collection

  • Simple and quick assembly
  • Good value for money

  • Driver’s helmet not very secure

Great

Great Value For Money

The AT-AT™ has mostly good features and I would place it’s overall level at satisfactory. This Microfighter set will appeal to all Star Wars fans, young and mature, so I would suggest definitely picking it up in the shop at such low cost
