Know about your Lego First Order Heavy Assault Walker 75189 Model
The Star Wars Episode VIII Heavy Assault Walker is based upon the movie’s All-Terrain Megacaliber Six (AT-M6) battlefield walker model. Released in September 2017, the assembled play-set stands 35 cm tall and 35 cm wide, so it is a reasonably large piece. There are guns, troop bay, control room and other details included in the model, giving it a fair likeness to the original.
One of the main attraction points of the play-set is the inclusion of five Lego mini-figures. Prominent among them is Rey, which is exclusive to this set. The other figures are Poe Cameron, a resistance trooper, one walker driver and storm-trooper of the First Order.
The assembly time of the play-set is around three to four hours and it includes functional movable headpiece, bendable front, and rear legs. There are two guns mounted on the top of the head, the six-shot Megacaliber and another below the cockpit. Both of them can shoot studs and bolts through operable hidden firing mechanisms. There are troop bays at the back part of the Heavy Assault Walker, with open-able doors from the sides. The cockpit or the head can also swivel from side to side for pointing at the enemy troops.
