Rebels enforcement comes to a judge:
- nice minifigures with lot of details
- the "snowbreaker" is nicely done and looks solid, the box within is useful
- new rebel helmet/caps give to the figs really fine look
- Zev Senesca's is OK, but the face - the visor could be somehow on the helmet, not painted. I would like it more that way.
Overall - fine army enlarger with enough accessories and details. Of course, overpriced as every set sold in Europe (therefore I better never rate price).
My rating: 8.5/10

This is a good set but it needs some work done to it.
THE MINIFIGURES: The minifigures were a nice remake of previous Hoth troopers although I preferred their appearance in 7749: Echo Base. The pilot is easily my favourite, and the goggles that have been painted onto his face look good. It's a tad weird that the real goggles on the troopers helmets have to be taken off to change their position when, as with previous versions and the classic spacemen, it could be far easier if you could do it manually. Still - a good army builder on the whole.
THE SPEEDER: The speeder is a quick build. The little storage box that slides in on the top was useful for the pilot's gun and a spare pair of goggles and it runs smoothly on all surfaces. The flick misiles are a bit difficult to fire but I never really use them anyway. It was a bit smaller than I expected and you can't do that much with it.
THE OTHER STUFF: This is where the set goes a little bit wrong. £10 for a few minifigures and a little speeder and only 72 pieces (a lot of which are dedicated to the minifigs) isn't really worth it. A small hoth turret that were released with old Snowspeeder sets and the latest AT-AT set (8129) would have made this a perfect buy.
PROS: Good minifigures, nice speeder, runs smoothly.
CONS: Goggles on minifigures look weird, speeder is too small, flick-fire missiles aren't very good, overpriced.
The minifigures and the speeder are good enough but would have been made better with either a lower price or something extra - It was still a great help in building my Hoth and Rebel collections!
