LEGO UCS Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder Key Details
Set number: 75341
Dimensions: 50cm long, 17cm high, 30cm wide
Set Designer: Cesar Carvalhosa Soares
Minifigures: Luke Skywalker, C-3PO
Luke Skywalker’s battered Landspeeder is the latest Star Wars vehicle to join the UCS Collection, following last year’s 75313 UCS AT-AT, and 75309 UCS Republic Gunship, becoming the most detailed and definitive versions of the Landspeeder yet.
The X-34 Landspeeder were typical civilian transports, designed to withstand the rough sandy dunes of Tatooine. First seen in Star Wars: A New Hope, Luke used the vehicle extensively as part of his farm work, travelling across Tatooine’s harsh deserts.
Accompanied by C-3PO, Luke used the Landspeeder to locate R2-D2, when he was discovered by Obi-Wan Kenobi.
It was also the vehicle they were travelling in when Obi-Wan used a Jedi mind trick to get past stormtroopers guarding entry into Mos Eisley. Eventually Luke sold the Landspeeder to pay for his transport to the planet Alderaan.
There are some really nice details captured here, including the new curved cockpit windscreen, exposed turbine engine (with plenty of nice greebling), and (sadly) plenty of stickers to give it a beat-up look that we all know from A New Hope.
The colours – a mix of dark nougat, dark red, and greys which does a great job of capturing the colours of the X-34 Landspeeder.
Two minifigures are included in the set – a common, garden variety Tatooine Luke Skywalker, and… an exclusive C-3PO minifigure, which features a proper dual-moulded silver leg for the first time ever.
Excruciatingly, this is the perfect incarnation of everyone’s favourite shiny protocol droid, and features highly detailed side arm, and leg printing. I really hope we get him in other sets, as it’ll be a shame for minifigure collectors and Star Wars fans who were otherwise planning on skipping on this set.
The model delivers exactly what the box promises – a highly detailed rendition of the iconic Landspeeder, upsized to be a great display model, if you love Landspeeders and have a strong affinity with A New Hope, which a lot of Star Wars and Original Trilogy fans do.
The proportions and size are exactly what you’d want from a UCS Landspeeder, and although I’m disappointed in the use of stickers as opposed to printed elements, they do add a bit more character and accuracy to the model, although in this case, I think they’re definitely optional for those opposed to stickers.
And yes, it does look great on display, as all UCS sets are designed to do.
Landspeeders have been a staple of LEGO Star Wars, and you could reliably expect minifigure-scale versions to pop up every few years. They’re almost like Police Stations and Fire Stations – eternally relevant and a bit of a running joke among LEGO Star Wars fans.
It’s great that we finally get a proper, highly detailed and definitive Landspeeder but I think this set will be highly divisive, with half of fans absolutely loving it, and the other half that won’t care about this.
I fall in the latter camp, and have even dubbed this the Mehspeeder.
From my perspective, I can’t imagine fans yearning for a UCS slot to be taken up by a Landspeeder. While iconic, I can think of so many other vehicles, or ships that would’ve been my pick for a UCS slot – any prequel ship or vehicle, Jabba’s Sail Barge, a TIE Bomber/Advanced… the list goes on and on.
While I consider myself an outsized LEGO Star Wars fan, this just didn’t make me feel excited at all, with the new dual-moulded C-3PO being the most interesting thing in the set for me.
I don’t know – with so many great LEGO sets out there targeted at adults, and rapidly increasing living costs, I feel like that this is an extravagant model, that no one was really crying out for.
Like, are there people that are genuinely excited about a Landspeeder over all the other cool ships in the Star Wars universe?
To me, LEGO Landspeeders have always been about minifigures, and a model at this scale, without minifigures or characters that you can pop into the cockpit just doesn’t seem right to me, and greatly diminishes the appeal to it.
When I picture a Landspeeder from A New Hope in my head, I picture Luke zipping around, or Obi Wan, Luke and C-3PO messing with a couple of sandy Stormtroopers, not the actual vehicle itself.
That said, I think a lot of LEGO fans will be delighted with what is quintessentially the perfect LEGO Landspeeder display model, and will be really happy with it.
As for me, I think this will be the first UCS set that I’ll not get at launch and will likely wait for a good sale or other offer. Instead, I’ll likely pick up the Star Wars Diorama sets to qualify for the May the 4th GWPs!
75341 Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder will be released on 1 May 2022 for LEGO VIP members, and 4 May 2022 for everyone else, and will be initially available exclusively from LEGO.com or your local LEGO Store.
