Five minifigures, two starfighters, one iconic franchise.
Every single LEGO® Star Wars fan adores when a new set of Star Wars starfighters releases. With the T-6 Jedi Shuttle for “Ahsoka” and the Snub Fighter from “The Mandalorian,” the New Republic E-Wing vs. Shin Hati’s starfighter is a must-have grab! This is evidently a unique, boastfully colorful set, sporting multiple minifigures that will most likely not appear in the Star Wars LEGO® theme down the line.
What Is Important About Ahsoka New Republic E-Wing vs. Shin Hati’s Starfighter 75364 Appearance?
Off the bat, the E-Wing is an awesome variation of a Rebellion X-Wing, sporting a similar cockpit and astromech droid seat behind the pilot. That is an awesome call back, and the three-pronged ship is aptly shaped like the letter “E.” I also love the ejectable seat and deployable landing gear.
For Shin Hati’s Starfighter, are you seeing what I am seeing? This is eerily similar to the design of General Grevious’ Starfighter. It is almost like a galactic podracer with the cockpit set behind the thrusters, as if the engines are running away from the pilot. It is a sinister design and an awesome callback. I am incredibly curious to learn the history of this ship! Side-by-side pictures and links provided for your enjoyment (or your purchase off of Amazon):
What Are The Minifigures In Set 75364?
Let’s go through all of them!
Baylan Skoll – A force-sensitive human male, this former Jedi turned…Sith(?), jerk(?) TBD survived the Great Jedi Purge and sports a red lightsaber with a faintly orange hue. It appears he is now a mercenary working alongside Grand Admiral Thrawn. However, he appears to have a complicated presence in the show and might operate in a less-than Sith role, hence the orange-red saber. However, the set makes it just red! Heavy Count Dooku vibes here with his look…
Shin Hati – Baylan Skoll’s apprentice and female force-sensitive fighter. She also has a lightsaber with an orange-red hue. Being Baylan’s apprentice, it is assumed she has a complicated role as well and might not be as bad as she seems. Her minifig sports a padawan ponytail, so I am incredibly excited for the backstory of this character.
Morgan Elsbeth – A female human that Din Djarin and Ahsoka fought in Season 2 of “The Mandalorian.” She was instrumental in forging a formidable Navy for the Galactic Empire – I wonder if she will somehow get her beskar spear back! She is not good, and might be working with Admiral Thrawn for a resurgence of the fallen Galactic Empire. Her minifig comes with an awesome lower-torso dress.
Captain Porter – Not much has been said about the blue-suit Republic printed minifig. However, operating with an E-Wing and a New Republic Astromech droid, it’s safe to say he is a good guy! A nice touch is the very detailed, dark-blue New Republic LEGO® helmet he has on his head.
New Republic Astromech – Astromechs are always heavily sought after. R2-D2 is quite possibly the most iconic minifig in the franchise in its own right. An Astromech is the same model, sporting its own looks and personality. I am excited to find out the name of this new Astromech. Its LEGO® yellow and blue New Republic colors are a must-have grab for your LEGO® collection!
