Part of the Classic Star Wars collection, this minifigure collectors pack was released in 2000. Included in this 20-piece set are the Chewbacca and two Scout Trooper minifigures, along with information cars and decorative stands. Each of the information cards tells a little about the character and on the back has different backdrops to represent different locations from the movie. In this case all the minifigures’ stands portray one of the picturesque scenes from Endor, which thankfully the second Death Star did not blow up. Lego Tourists can therefore go see these locations, provided they can afford faster-than-light travel. The stand and card make displaying each minifigure very classy and easy. The bases, however, do not work well with regular bricks.
The third of only four LEGO Star Wars minifigure packs released, this set contains the Episode VI: Return of the Jedi versions of Chewbacca and the Scout Troopers. Chewbacca is wearing his ammo belt and his hairy hide. As always, Wookiees aren’t too fond of clothing. Armed with his explosive bowcaster, this Wookiee is a force to be reckoned with. The Scout Troopers are wearing the cut down Stormtrooper armor that was used by the scouts. Their lighter and slimmer armor made it easier for them to move through varieties of terrain quickly and silently, its just too bad that they were never allowed to paint their armor anything other than Imperial White. Armed with blasters (a megaphone piece turned around with a red translucent piece on the end) These guys don’t actually have faces as well, a solid black head makes the open helmets look exactly as if it has a visor, so you can turn the helmets side to side without any problems. This feature was popular among the helmeted characters of the LEGO Star Wars series of that time.
Only four of these minifigure packs were released in 2000 as part of the Classic Star Wars collection. George Lucas, the creator of the Star Wars series, decided that LEGO could not make any more of the individual minifigure sets. Based off the an extension of the contract with Lucasfilm for the rights to the LEGO Star Wars collection, there was never a reason given as to why this collection was shut down. A 20-piece set, it is not difficult to build at all. A rare set these days, this set would draw the envy of knowledgeable LEGO Star Wars collectors and other fans. This set, however, would not provide much in the way of entertainment or excitement for younger builders, as it is primarily a display set.
