LEGO Knocka has posted a picture of a never before seen LEGO Star Wars 75058 MTT set. The set was found at the LEGO Store in Budapest, Hungry. There’s the usual battle droid minifigures, Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Naboo Security Guard. You also get a new repair droid minifigure too.
Comparing this to the 2007 LEGO Star Wars 7662 Trade Federation MTT, this set does in fact look smaller. The droid storage racquet seems to only hold 3 battle droids compared to the previous version which was able to hold 8 battle droids.

A real “blast from the past” you may call it. The classic green and white MK VII has real authentic details. White Mirrors, Race strips recognizable roof and luggage space. Even the fog lamps are not missing. You can disassemble the roof and then you see the beige interior with steering, gearbox and handbrake. As icing on the cake you get a picnic basket and rug at. Perfect for a day out.
