Hey Everyone, this is my first review of the new wave of the LEGO Star Wars 2019 winter set wave. And I must say this is one of my favorite sets from this wave. It’s also one of my favorite battle packs LEGO has ever created. This LEGO set is based off of the Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017) video game. As I’m not familiar with the videogame, this review is based purely on the set.
Set Name: Inferno Squad Battle Pack
Set Number: 75226
Release Date: January 1, 2019
As usual, we get 4 minifigures in this battle pack. The first thing I notice when I look at them is the amount of detail they have on their armor. Both the back and front of the body have printing, as well as the legs and helmet. This set also has a wide variety of weapons; 3 different weapons for 4 minifigures, which is really cool. This is also the second female Stormtrooper LEGO has created since Captain Phasma was introduced, so that’s neat. Her name is Iden Versio, she does not come with a helmet and her face is two-sided which is rare for a battle pack set.
The other 3 troopers are male and they all have different faces. The Troopers have Imperial pilot helmets. The helmets don’t cover the entire head, so the back of their heads are unprotected. I wish LEGO covered the entire head so it would look better. One of my favorite parts of the minifigures is that they come with 2 gear belts that are able to go between the legs and body giving it an authentic look. The best part is the gear belts don’t affect the figures ability to sit down, so you can keep the belt on when they are flying the Speeder.
The Speeder is one of my favorite LEGO has ever created. It comes with 4 canons and two flick-fire studs. It looks fast and sleek with the color choice and wing placement. Behind the seat there are two open gray studs, I would have liked to have seen a 1 x 1 slanted triangle piece to cover it up.
Overall this set is amazing. I highly recommend picking this one up. It’s definitely a 10/10 Battle Pack and in my top 5 favorite Battle Packs of all times.
