|LEGO Star Wars Magazine Issue 16|
Issue 16 of LEGO Star Wars Magazine has just came out, and this month's free gift is the metal monster MTT!
The Multi-Troop Transport, or MTT for short, is a heavily armored repulsorlift vehicle used to bring the Battle Droids to the place of conflict. It was first seen in The Phantom Menace, utilized by the Trade Federation in the Battle of Naboo.
After last month's AT-AT, the MTT microbuild is a bit of a letdown. I think you need to squint your eyes real small to see the resemblance. I needed to give a detailed description to the missus before she was able to recognize the vehicle. For me, the final build looks like a cross between a choo choo train and a ground type Pokémon. The good thing about the foil pack is the great assortment of reddish brown pieces, including two mini shooters. This is the first time that I saw that piece in that color. A quick Google search revealed that there are just at least three sets that contain reddish brown mini shooters. The MTT is a so-so microbuild for me. It's okay enough to add to your collection, and okay enough to pass on it.
Moving on, for next month's issue, make way for a very important ship, none other than Emperor Palpatine's Shuttle! The LEGO Star Wars Magazine Issue 17 comes out on 9 November.
