Review: LEGO 75362 Ahsoka Tano’s T-6 Jedi Shuttle

We’re a bit late to the party, but now that the Ahsoka TV series has wrapped up on Disney Plus, it’s time to take a quick look at some of the sets that have been inspired by the show!

Ahsoka marks the long-awaited live action sequel to Star Wars Rebels, expanding the lore of the galaxy far, far away and has been a hit with fans for revisiting fan-favourite characters, as well as introduce compelling new ones. LEGO Star Wars fans of course will be excited to get their hands on the new sets and minifigures from the show!

LEGO Star Wars correspondent Vaderfan takes a look at 75362 Ahsoka Tano’s T-6 Jedi Shuttle, which includes four exclusive minifigures – including the two main protagonists of the show, Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren.

It is also the first LEGO T-6 shuttle since 2011, and makes great use of a far more diverse LEGO parts palette. Let’s take a closer look, and see if this set offers more than a strong minifigure selection!

This is a guest review from our LEGO Star Wars correspondent Vaderfan – check out some of his more recent reviews below.

Unboxing

The front of the box shows the shuttle in its vertical flight mode, along with the four minifigures in the bottom right and a graphic of the Ahsoka minifigure in the bottom left.

The back of the box shows the ship in landing mode, along with some cutouts showcasing the play features.

Inside the box you’ll find 6 numbered bags, a vertically-oriented instruction manual, and a small sticker sheet.

75362 Ahsoka Tano’s T-6 Jedi Shuttle Minifigures

The first minifigure in the set is the exclusive Ahsoka Tano, which is huge draw for this set. She is wearing her gunmetal grey-colored robes that appear in both The Mandalorian and the Ahsoka show, and they look splendid, even featuring toe printing.

Her lekku headpiece is a new rubbery mold with beautiful printed detail, and she even features printed arms!

Her accessories of choice are two clear lightsabers (reflecting her neutral status after walking away from the Jedi Order), and she gets some additional printing on the back of her torso and head. A quality minifigure that does the character justice.

Next up is the minifigure debut of Professor Huyang, the sardonic droid Jedi professor who first appeared in the Clone Wars TV show and is responsible for helping younglings at the Jedi Temple craft their lightsabers.

Despite his skinnier droid stature in the show, the designers opted to use a minifigure body to represent him, and I do think it was the right choice as there is lots of magnificent printed detail. Huyang also gets a new molded head element which, while slightly oversized, looks great too.

There’s more printed wires on the back of Huyang’s body, and there’s even a printed 1×1 tile mounted on the back for additional 3D detail.

Next up we have the mysterious inquisitor Marrok. Unlike some previous Inquisitor figures, Marrok opts for a gunmetal grey outfit, which gives him a fantastic armoured look. Marrok uses the Grand Inquisitor‘s chest armor piece in a new recolor/print, and also gets a stunning new helmet mold that can likely be reused in medieval creations too.

Marrok’s chest armor has a clip on the back for storing his double-bladed lightsaber, which uses the unique rounded Inquisitor hilt design. Underneath the helmet is a plain black head, keeping Marrok’s identity mysterious.

Last but not least is Sabine Wren, who has received some significant upgrades since the last time we saw her. Her torso and legs have a base dark brown color which is a bit more muted than what one would usually expect from the Mandalorian graffiti artist, but the colorful chest armour design is accurate to the show.

She has a double-sided head (confident smirk/grimace) and a purple bob hairpiece, although some printed highlights in her hair would have been neat.

There’s more printed Mandalorian armour details on the back of her torso, and Sabine is armed with Ezra Bridger’s green lightsaber. Unfortunately she doesn’t get arm printing, which could’ve depicted her more colourful shoulder armor.

You can switch to a more traditional Mandalorian look for Sabine, as the set designers have also included her helmet and dual blasters! The helmet is a new print and looks great, and is a choice inclusion.

The minifigure selection is pretty much perfect – every single character is done well and all four are pretty highly desirable if you are a fan of the Ahsoka show.

The Final Model

There’s only one build in the set, and it is the T-6 shuttle itself. The shuttle is whitish grey and dark red in the show, and perhaps white might have been a more accurate choice for the primary color, though light grey is arguably more aesthetically pleasing.

The model is surprisingly small for a US$80 set, measuring only around 30cm (12″) wide. Its flat, graceful design reminds me somewhat of a manta ray, and from most views it does a good job replicating the onscreen ship.

The shuttle’s defining characteristic is the ability to rotate the wings, which is also present in LEGO form thanks to a large Technic turntable.

You can rotate the shuttle’s wings around the main body/cockpit assembly, and it looks good in its vertical flight mode. Some stickers are used for completing the dark red patterns, while others add additional mechanical detail.

Unfortunately, the reverse side of the wings reveals the underside of the plates, and this side looks shockingly unfinished.

Some previous Star Wars sets with rotating wings would replicate the patterns from the top of the wings to the bottom (like 9525 Pre Vizsla’s Mandalorian Fighter), but the complete lack of any detail on the underside here looks quite terrible, frankly.

Considering the small size of the final model in relation to the price, I think the designers could definitely have added a few more wedge plates to the bottom just to mimic the patterns on the top of the wings. Otherwise, you are only left with just one “camera friendly” viewing angle which should not be the case.

The bottom of the ship stands on a narrow 1×8 plate, but has some unusual landing gear in the form of fold-out clip assemblies. These 2×3 pieces are mounted with clips and can be folded out for additional stability when the ship is landed.

The rear of the ship has the recognizable four engine glows which looks great, along with a microscale bubble turret represented with a 2×2 clear dome piece.

The turret cannot rotate side to side but the mini cannons themselves can angle up and down which is a nice touch.

The cockpit at the front is flanked by a pair of stud shooters, and has an attractive printed decoration on the clear canopy piece.

There’s space for just one minifigure inside, which is a downgrade from the 2011 shuttle that could fit two pilots.

The shuttle in the show also frequently shows Ahsoka and Huyang sitting side by side, although this is an unfortunate impact of the entire ship being scaled down.

The pilot gets a printed 1×2 tile for controls.

Behind the cockpit is the ship’s main fin, with a stickered 2×2 round tile on each side and some greebling for mechanical detail. The angled panels below the fin are actually the storage bays of the shuttle.

The one on the right opens up and reveals space for Ahsoka’s dual lightsabers when she is flying the shuttle. There’s also enough room to store Sabine’s Mandalorian helmet and blasters.

The other side has a removable maintenance box with a clip for Huyang’s spanner. While it looks like there’s space for a minifigure in here, sadly the space is too small so the total carrying capacity for this LEGO T-6 shuttle is just one.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I think that 75362 Ahsoka Tano’s T-6 Jedi Shuttle is a decent set, and one that will certainly sell well because of the minifigures included.

The four minifigures themselves are excellent, and a well-deserving addition anyone’s LEGO Star Wars minifigure collection.

The shuttle itself leaves a bit to be desired – only room for one minifigure is slightly disappointing, and the unfinished underside of the wings is definitely a weak design choice and the size is rather lacking for the price.

All things considered it still looks pretty good as long as you only see the top of the wings. £65 in the UK is slightly pricey and US$80 definitely feels like too much, so I would recommend waiting for a decent discount or GWP to pick this set up.

Build [3] The shuttle looks good on display, but is slightly lacking in play features and size, plus the underdetailed wings.
Minifigures [5] A pretty much perfect selection of star-studded minifigures.
Real Value [3] $80 USD is definitely too expensive; many fans will probably buy this for the figures anyway but the ship is small for the price. The UK price is slightly more reasonable.
Innovation [3] Nothing particularly innovative but the design of the T-6 shuttle in LEGO is quite unique.
Keepabiility [4] This ship is onscreen in most of the Ahsoka episodes, plus the minifigures will surely be desirable in future.

Rating and Score: 4/5 ★★★
