These were found in whung's Brickshelf gallery:







Not quite as good as the last bunch, IMO. But nice printing on the JSF.

Not very impressive, especially not if they are the same price point as the last bunch.

I don't know, these look a little weird to me. I'm not really too enthused about this.

I sort of like Slave I, but it seems a bit too long and not wide enough.

The decals (or are they stickers?) on the JSF are an epic fail in my opinion... Actually, I guess it's not so much the decals, but the square shape of the front of the craft that ruins it for me. And I'm also curious as to how they managed to keep green out of that Firespray, assuming it's the one we all know and love, that is. I probably won't be getting any of these... Sad

The Slave I doesn't look bad, they made the length well, but for some reason have the wings way too short. In the end, it looks like a lizard, it's too long and not wide enough. I don't like how they never put any green into it, but regardless, I be getting it. If it isn't a pricy rip-off.

I'm not familiar with these kind of keychains; is the entire thing stuck together, or is it just a couple peices that are connected to the keychain?

They're permanently stuck (glued?) together. I got the last batch. I like them, though I think they're too big to actually be used on my keys.

This set isn't as good. I do like the landspeeder and the Slave I is alright. The Jedi Starfighter looks a little....off to me. I'm not sure how else to say it.

I must say, the JSF is my favourite! It looks so compact and instantly recognisable, you've gotta appreciate the limitations of scale in this...

That landspeeder looks VERY familiar.

Not all that familiar. Enjoy your KANSHPEERASEE though.

Beyond them both being tiny landspeeders, both using an obvious curvy piece for the front curve, and both using the same piece to attach the side engine bits (which themselves are constructed differently), they really have little in common.

I don't think it's a ripped off design. There are only so many parts to use for teeny tiny models that would look right and Lego's landspeeder uses the logical choice of a few similar parts.

The Landspeeder's ok (at least it's quite obvious what it actually is), but on the Slave-1 couldn't they have snuck in some sand green somewhere? Plus the wings are too stubby and the levers for "rotating guns" look like insect antennae. As for the JSF, that's just really awful. Mad I guess for the $$ they're asking i expect better designs.

I like the landspeeder. I doubt I'd buy it, but I like it. I prefer the minifig keychains.

All three of them actually look fairly nice, but I'm not willing to pay the $10 price for those tiny vehicles. I'd much rather buy a battle pack.

I hate having a busy job, I miss out on all the news. Sad Anyway, if I could only buy one of those then it would be the Landspeeder. It's got a nice design - smart and tight. Smile

don't necessarily assume that all of the mini's that ever got released were the only one's made. I've seen images of items that never made it to market from that mini's time period.

Also, Wouldn't it be sweet if Chris Deck's mini's were for sale, I'd want the whole set.

Shocked Brilliant idea Steve!

Slave one is lacking some green there.

These can now be found at S@H for US$4.99 or CDN$6.99.

These are half the price of the 1st wave of these "bag charms" and didn't think these were popular at that time...maybe they figure they better try a different price-point for these...and half the size Smile

I agree, there does need to be some green.
