|LEGO Star Wars Magazine Issue 17|
The LEGO Star Wars Magazine Issue 17 has just been released, and this month's free gift is the personal transport of the evil Emperor, it's Palpatine's Shuttle!
The modified Theta-class T-2c Shuttle was the vehicle used by the Emperor to aid his injured apprentice Anakin Skywalker from the fiery planet Mustafar. Of course, all this happened towards the end of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
This month's microbuild is a bit of a saving grace from last month's MTT, but obviously, it still hasn't top the AT-AT. It is a fun quick build, and the resemblance from the source material is easily seen.
By the way, the foil pack packaging has changed in this issue. It's bigger now, and it's no longer resealable. I don't know if this will be the case from now on, or it's just because big parts were included in this month's free gift. But this makes more sense though in terms of security. There'll be no way to open the foil packs in the store shelves without leaving a trace. It is also important to note the presence of a Death Trooper in the packaging. Can we expect Rogue One microbuilds soon?
For next month's issue, get ready for the very green Flash Speeder! The LEGO Star Wars Magazine Issue 18 comes out on 14 December.
