7251: Darth Vader Transformation

Name: Darth Vader Transformation

Theme: Star Wars Episode III

Set Number: 7251

Pieces: 53

Year released: 2005

Minifigures: 2

Price: Can't remember, but $7.00 according to Peeron

This is a nice little set of a pivotal scene from "Star Wars episode III: Revenge of the Sith"

First there is the instruction manual.

The minifig page.

And a random page.

Here are the minifigs. Darth Vader and a very scarred and wounded Anakin Skywalker.

Let's start with Darth Vader. He is a nice fig, but I already have a couple of him (four in total). Shame he comes without a cape or lightsaber.

This is what he looks like when you remove his helmet.

Anakin is a nice fig as well and his head is only available in this set.

Here's the set without the minifigs.

Here's how the transformation station looks like when it's empty.

And here it is with Darth Vader in position

And here's Anakin.

View from the side of both figures.

Darth Vader face up, Anakin face down.

The other way around.

You can move the medical droid around a bit because of this piece.

And with them.

Price: 8/10 - The price is alright for two neat figs and a nice transformation station with medical droid.

Parts: 7/10 - Not really any special pieces, but the mechanical arms and tools are nice.

Playability: 8/10 - Fun way of transforming Anakin to Vader.

Minifigs: 8/10 - Only way to get the wounded Anakin figure and a cheap way to get Darth Vader.

Final: 8/10 - A solid set.

Nice review.

This was a great parts pack, and easiest way I know of to get a Vader.

Nice review! I like this set since there are some exclusive figs for only seven dollars. Otherwise it is a bit boring, what do they expect us to do, spin it around?

Great review as usual :thumbup: , it is great that you are trying to fill most of the gaps in the Review Index :thumbup: . The more and more I remember sets like this, the more I want the TLC to stop giving us just BP and to get back in their roots to make cheap and great sets.

Yes, another great review. :thumbup:

I also wish that LEGO would still make these cheap and affordable sets. All Star Wars sets (except for minis) are at least $10 USD nowadays, and they're always battle packs.

I like how their faces are exactly like each others. (well except for all the detail on their faces) I like the medic droid hes really well done. Vaders torso looks weird compared to the new one.

Thanks for the review! I found the medical droid very useful for Echo Base!
