As the third LEGO Star Wars set ever to contain a Chewbacca minifigure, the LEGO 7127 Imperial AT-ST is part of the Classic sub theme and it was released in 2001. This set includes a total of 107 bricks and is recommended for ages 7 and up. In this set you are able to recreate a very important scene that took place in the midst of battle. Princess Leia and Han Solo are under the impression that no help will come for them. As they see the Imperial AT-ST approach they were even more convinced that they were done for. You can only imagine how happy they were when they saw that Chewbacca was steering the machine and he was coming to the rescue!
Because this set was released in 2001, about 10 years ago, the Chewbacca mini figure in this set is the out dated brown classic figure. In the newer sets you will notice that this particular figure looks more like the character in the movies and his color is reddish instead of a brown dull color. The Chewbacca figure comes with no weapons but the AT-ST comes with grey guns for protection.
This set is a classic and not just because it has one of the first Chewbacca figures ever to be released, but also because of the box that it comes in. The box is labeled with the very first star wars design to be released by LEGO. The very first design was a gold Star Wars logo with the comic versions of the LEGO mini figures of Princess Leia, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, A Stormtrooper and Luke Skywalker. In between all of the figures are two light sabers, a red one and a blue one. Many collectors search for this set simply because the box and logo is so rare.
It is always very interesting to take a look back into some of the very first creations from LEGO. With the LEGO Star Wars Classic sub theme, we are able to do that. When you look back and notice how far LEGO has come with their creativity and skills, it will amaze you. Many collectors love to collect the older sets for that purpose alone, so they can sit back and admire the classics and compare them to the modern versions. LEGO is known for recreating their classic sets. The reason for this is to put a modern twist on a classic and also to give their collectors and fans more reason to keep these building blocks on their hobby list.
