Happy New Year, everyone!

I went to my local Wal-mart looking for an exclusive Bionicle set yesterday, but was amazed to find everything there- SW, Bionicle, EF, Indie, the works. I nabbed the JSF and the Rogue Shadow and scampered home to take pics with my new camera. *wub*

The box:

The same as the other '07 boxes. Nothing new.

The back shows the various features, with "pop out R2." :-|

Luckily, the intruction booklet and the DSS were intact- not folded like the last MM set I got. |-/

The DSS:

Not too bad, but printed parts would have been great.

The figs. Anakin is amazing, IMO. *wub* Fits the CW Anie great. I noticed on the S@H reviews the kiddies were saying how ugly he looked. |-/ They need to see the CW cartoon. For the sake of my health, I should probably stop reading those. :-D

The build. I won't go too in-depth on the build, since *vader* posted a very in-depth review here.

The start of the build:

The body of the fighter starts out long and skinny.

The JSF's landing gear allows it to sit comfortably without getting in the way while swooshing.

R2-D2's launching device.

R2 in position. When launched...

...He often gets stuck if you don't press the button hard enough. :-/ Looks like R2 needs to lay off... whatever it is robots eat.

So far:

The flag stickered. It's a big sucker sticker.

Completed. I forgot to add the nose stickers before I took the pic. Warning- the nose cone sticker is actually two stickers. I thought it was one, peeled of one of the stickers, and put it on the middle of the two 1x8 plates, and didn't notice the other sticker. *wacko*

Various completed shots:

I think this was a beautiful little set. R2's launching unit and the flick missiles are annoying, but easily fixed. I plan to add proper cannons in place of the flick missiles. Anakin is a great minifig, but he doesn't look so well standing next to my other figs.

Thanks for the review, Mr. Mandalorian! This set looks very nice, and it's good to know the nose cone stickers are 2 separate ones, so they don't cross bricks. :-D That camera is working out great for ya'! Thanks again!

Take pics of each page? That is a lot. I don't know of anywhere that might have it. :-/ If you check *vader* 's review, he has a lot of pics of the build, that might work just as well.
