Lego Star Wars Echo Base 7749

This is another fun ESB themed Lego Star Wars set: Echo Base 7749. I believe that this set is overpriced at $24.99, but you do get a nice rebel gun turret and Han Solo riding atop his tauntaun. Another gripe that I have about this set is it illustrates how badly Lego needs to redesign its packaging. The pieces take up about 1/3 of the interior of the box! I realize that Lego feels a need to hoard shelf space and consumer attention, but c’mon! Lego–please help the environment a little bit (ignoring the fact that you are a plastic pusher), and cut down on the packaging. See below for more pictures.

Stay tuned for the Friday, February 19 unveiling of my Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon 7190 redesign!
