In our latest unboxing, Rob looks at the newest Legion release. He’ll see what it takes to get it ready for the tabletop, show the models’ size, and tell you the GOTCHAS to be aware of when building them!
We will show you everything, including the sprues, bits, and of course, the size. That way, you can decide if this is worth your hard-earned hobby dollars.
Star Wars: Legion Blizzard Force & Echo Base Defenders: Unboxing
- Leia $19.99
- Chewbacca $19.99
- 1.4 FD Lasor Cannon Team $24.99
- 2 Tauntaun Riders $59.98 ($29.99 each)
- 4 Rebel Veterans $139.96 ($34.99 each)
- R2-D2 & C-3PO $19.99 (previously part of escape pod for $44.99)
Total MSRP: $284.90
Savings Versus Box Price: $134.91
For the price of the box, this is just a great deal! As you’ll almost get double value.
- Vader $19.99 (from core set)
- AT-ST $59.99
- 2 74-Z Speeder Bikes $59.98 ($29.99 each- core set versions)
- 3 Snowtroopers Units $89.97 ($29.99 each)
Total MSRP: $229.93
Savings Versus Box Price: $79.94
Obviously, this doesn’t have quite the savings as the box above, but it still has decent value for the price.
Echo Base Defenders Card Packs
We haven’t heard much about these, but all three are actually super useful if you are playing the echo base defenders. You can get all the updated rules for playing the battle force armies from Atomic Mass Games website by clicking here
However, for a lot of the minis, they still do this type of packaging. Some stuff will get a little bent, but we’ve never really had anything broken; just be sure to bend everything back (with a little heat) that needs it before building.

Blizzard Force Cards
All the new cards in this set are up on AMG’s site, and we’ve seen most of them in their separate box sets, but it’s good to get them all in the battle force set.
Blizzard Force Built Minis
You don’t actually have to glue all this down, but it builds super easily. However, with Ewoks coming out, it might be worthwhile not to glue it all down and throw some of them inside if you are up for a challenge!
Overall, these all have decent value, and if you’re looking to get into the game, these are worth a pickup! However, they will have some overlap with the starter sets themselves, so just be aware you may end up with a few doubles of units.
Another thing that we may not have mentioned as much is that you can get the Star Wars Legion Essentials Kit that retails for $30, giving you all the rulers and tokens you need to play the game now without purchasing the starter set.
After seeing this unboxing review, will you be picking either of these up?
