The 8085 Freeco Speeder is a LEGO Star Wars The Clone Wars set released in 2010, though some stores released it one month early, in December of 2009. The minifigures included are Talz Chieftain and Anakin Skywalker (Parka, Clone Wars) Minifigures.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Freeco speeder has 177 pieces and is a single-person transport with Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker included as pilot to the speeder. The windshield opens via a hinge and the compartment behind it can be used as a storage space for Anakin's lightsaber and a box for the binoculars included. The cockpit of the Freeco Speeder has a gap on each side where no pieces have been added. Also, the cockpit is not flush with the backscreen of the cargo hold.
The two minifigures included with this set are Anakin Skywalker and Thi-Sen/Talz Chieftain which both of them are exclusive and unique to this set. Anakin Skywalker has a double sided face. One side shows his original face and the other is him with goggles and a piece of cloth over his mouth. Anakin Skywalker is wearing snow gear which is different from Han Solo's snow gear as Anakin Skywalker's has a Jedi Emblem on his hood and torso. He is also equipped with a Blue Lightsaber with the new chrome design hilt which was first introduced in 8017 Darth Vader's TIE Fighter in 2009.
Thi-Sen/Talz Chieftain is made up similar to Chewbacca and Gamorrean Guard. His head part is all one piece going over the torso. The detail on Thi-Sen/Talz Chieftain is amazing as it has all been done out of plastic and no rubber. He is equipped with a Light Pearl Spear (This colour was used in some of the 2005 LEGO Star Wars Sets).
Background[edit | edit source]
Freeco speeders, known technically as CK-6 Swoops, were used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars on icy planets such as Orto Plutonia; the "Freeco" designation is a portmanteau of the words "freezing cold". They hover above the ground, so it is easy to traverse the harsh landscape. Even though they are built for extremely cold places, they need constant maintenance otherwise their systems will freeze up. Their bubble windshield helps to channel snow around them and their powerful headlights help the pilot spot approaching objects. This set is based of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes "Trespass" (Anakin,Thi-Sen and Freeco Speeder)
Notes[edit | edit source]
- This set was shown in Day 2 of the Clone Wars comics.
- This set is also included in the set 66378 Super Pack 3 in 1.
- The Talz species is seen breifly in Star Wars Episode IV, A New Hope.
