75331 The Razor Crest – I Gotta Get One Of Those

When it was first announced we were beyond excited to build and review the UCS Razor Crest having already been released in System scale, as a Microfighter, and in micro/mini scale. The Razor Crest was used as a military patrol craft before the rise of the Galactic empire, making her hard to trace. This M-111 Assault ship comes in at 80ft long, 54ft wide and 28ft tall making even the film prop a massive undertaking to move.

The Razor Crest is based on the A-10 thunderbolt which is also a twin-turbofan flying craft commonly nicknamed the “warthog.” This beastly LEGO set features two MK3e/W heavy laser canons and can take a beating given the Razor Crest survived two heavy landings and continued its faithful service to the bounty hunting Mandalorian Din Djarin.

When it comes to the overall build we start with an elaborate technic frame so that we can hoist the beastly 14 stud-wide turbo-fans that power this ST-70 class ship. You’ll have to use your own Ugnaught ingenuity to make some of these panels sit just right, however this incredible set doesn’t hold back. The way some of the panels sit is truly something to aspire to, using advanced techniques to get all the angles just right. The main side decal being brick built and the set features surprisingly small amount of stickers, 19 stickers in total including the UCS plaque.

The set’s massive twin turbines can be removed to see the interior which features several bounties who are being brought in “cold” and Boba Fett’s armour. The onboard carbonite freezing chamber features two stickered panels with frozen bounties ready to be brought back to Greef Karga on Nevarro.

The port, starboard and stern doors all lower into ramps similar to the onscreen appearance of this monstrosity. The back of the cockpit lifts out to reveal the bedroom where Pedro Pascal practices his Mandalorian voice. There was no room to include the vac-tube which is unfortunate because a fledgling Mythrol may need to evacuate their thorax while aboard. In total seven pieces of the ship are removable leading to a rather humourous picture of all the layers laying around as if the Jawas had ransacked her once again.

The set also includes the ball lever that Grogu is obsessed with playing with despite being told repeatedly that it is not a toy and the eggs that he snacks on. The eggs are in white when a Flame Yellowish Orange (Bricklink: Bright Light Orange) piece would have made a better fit colour wise.

Overall this set is truly something to behold both in terms of the size and intricacy. The price tag is nothing to scoff at, but any true Mandalorian fan knows that a camtono of credits is a small price to pay for a bounty hunter’s home and ticket to the stars. Unfortunately this may be the last version of this ship released by LEGO as Robert Rodriguez and Jon Favreau decided to blow the poor thing up.
