Hi, this is my first post here. I've been a long time LEGO and Star Wars fan and have been collecting Star Wars LEGO since the start in 1999. I noticed there are a lot of set reviews missing from The Star Wars Review Index. I have a lot of both old and new sets so I've decided to review a couple of them. Here's the first one:

7106: Droid Escape

Name: Droid Escape

Theme: Star Wars Episode IV

Set Number: 7106

Pieces: 44

Year released: 2001

Minifigures: 2

Price: Can't remember

The box has been long gone but here's the instruction manual (very small).

Here are the minifigs that are included with this set: C-3PO and R2-D2. This set was one of the first to have these two characters in it.

Here are the front and back of the escape pod.

Price: ?/10 - Can't remember it, but it wasn't much as far as I known.

Parts: 6/10 - Nothing special except for the printed 'walls'.

Playability: 5/10 - Not much that you can do with this thing except put the two droids in it.

Minifigs: 10/10 - Cheap way to get two great characters.

Final: 7/10 - Nice enough set, but the pod could have used an interior and maybe a villian (Jawa perhaps?).

Nice review, very straightforward, and displayed all aspects of the set in just the right amount of detail. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

I wish I collected Lego when this was released, it looks like a cool little set. I think it is one of the cheapest sets with C3PO in it, and I don't have him yet. :sad: I'm hoping he will be in a set under $50 with the new pearl gold. :cry_happy:

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the review!

I always wanted to see a review of this set because it was never in the index. :thumbup:

By the way, according to Peeron, the MSRP price of Droid Escape was $6.00 USD.

EDIT: I voted average.

a great review considering it was your first review :classic: . I started collecting a long time after this came out which is annoying because C3PO is in all the expensive sets these days :hmpf_bad:

Welcome! A fine way to introduce your self is to put up a rare review of an old set, than good! This is a nice set in my opinion, the figures included certainly are very nice. The pod is a bit big, but the curves are good because they have nice printing on them.
