75113 Rey was released at the beginning of 2016 and proved popular with fans of the Buildable Figures range so I was a little hesitant when it was revealed that the Star Wars: The Last Jedi selection would include an updated version of the heroine. There are many other characters we have yet to see in this form and improving upon an impressive existing set always presents a difficult challenge for LEGO designers.
Fortunately, 75528 Rey seems to improve upon the few issues that there were with the original figure, making use of some printed elements which considerably enhance the level of detail. Hopefully these improvements will prove worthy of the increased price point.
The Completed Model
Rey stands just over 24cm in height which feels appropriate in relation to other figures. Her attire is almost entirely grey and brown so looks somewhat drab at first glance, although it is distinctive within the range and matches the movie very nicely. Combining fabric components with plastic shells is often difficult due to their disparate textures but it works well in this instance, just as it did on 75113 Rey in 2016.
