Review of the Imperial Dropship Transport

The Imperial Dropship Transport is a unique vehicle that originated in the Force Unleashed video games. Serving as the imperial version of the Republic gunship, this peculiar-looking ship boasts an unusual design and interesting features. In this review, we will explore the various aspects of the Imperial Dropship Transport, from its design and functionality to its durability and minifigure scale. Join me as we delve into the world of LEGO Star Wars and take a closer look at this intriguing model.

Entering the realm of the Imperial Dropship Transport, one cannot help but notice its unconventional appearance. Featuring multiple laser cannons and rocket launchers, this ship is armed to the teeth. The front section is equipped with small and heavy laser cannons, creating a formidable offensive capability. Moreover, the detailed design of the engine pods and wings, inspired by the video game model, adds an authentic touch to this LEGO creation.

However, it is important to note that the Imperial Dropship Transport is not an out-of-atmosphere vehicle. While it excels in carrying stormtroopers into battle, its capabilities are limited to planetary operations. Nevertheless, this model successfully replicates the unique elements showcased in the video game, giving fans an opportunity to own a piece of Star Wars history.

One of the standout features of this LEGO model is its ability to carry up to 16 stormtroopers. The inclusion of a pilot and a gunner adds to the authenticity of the Imperial Dropship Transport. The interior of the cockpit reveals two control panels with joysticks, allowing the stormtroopers to take control of the ship. Additionally, the attention to detail extends to the center section, where a working door and a well-connected interior create a realistic and immersive experience.

When it comes to the durability of the model, the Imperial Dropship Transport has undergone significant improvements. The wings, which were known for their sagging issue, have been completely remodeled to eliminate this problem. The joint connection has been strengthened, ensuring that the wings remain sturdy and in position. Additionally, the connecting points for the back sections have been redesigned to prevent any drooping, resulting in a more durable and robust build.

Despite these improvements, there are a few areas that require caution. The front blasters and the fins are relatively fragile and may detach if excessive force is applied. Furthermore, the articulation of the wings might be hindered due to the design of the joints. However, by following the provided instructions and removing the wing for proper articulation, these issues can be easily overcome. The bottom section of the model, on the other hand, is solid and provides stability, making it an ideal point of grip.

In terms of scale, the Imperial Dropship Transport is designed to accommodate minifigures. While it can hold up to 16 stormtroopers comfortably, it should be noted that the interior is not entirely smooth. This deliberate choice allows for customization of how the minifigures are positioned within the body of the ship. However, it does create some challenges when placing the minifigures inside. Nonetheless, the model remains faithful to its minifigure scale portrayal, providing a visually appealing and functional experience.

For enthusiasts of LEGO Star Wars, the Imperial Dropship Transport offers an opportunity to explore the intricacies of its design and build. The rear section, in particular, showcases the efforts put into accurately recreating the model from the video game. It is evident that overcoming the challenge of the empty interior was no easy task. Unconventional building techniques and unconventional connections were employed to seamlessly join the top and bottom sections. Although it may appear challenging at first, the model eventually comes together, resulting in a satisfying and authentic representation of the Imperial Dropship Transport.
