Final Model

Since Mini sets go together so quickly, here's a few shots of the final model. Nice use of antennae/control sticks for the forward guns, and a working hatch in the back for loading.

Last Words

Pros: Larger than most Mini sets, and it's a great representation of the Trade Federation's troop carrier.

Cons: Even though it's a Mini set, there's not a whole lot of detail. The working hatch in the back is a nice touch, though.

Overall: If you can't afford either of the two fullsize MTT sets that LEGO has released, then this Mini version is the perfect alternative. Just use a bunch of 1x1 circular plates as battle droids? :)

Are you trying to get into the academy :tongue: ?

What are you talking about? You don't have to do anything at all to join the Reviewer's Academy. :wink:

Thanks for a great review of a LEGO Star Wars set that I never knew existed, liquidcross! :classic:

The model looks a bit too long compared to the large MTT, though.

Is the mini model line that comes with one-fourth of a fifth model?

I agree with Pi, this set does seem to be longer than it should. However the colours they used are great and it looks like a fine set.

Great review!

Yep, this one came with a Y-wing nacelle.

Thanks for the review. :thumbup:

I must say, for a set that is larger than most minis, I actually dislike it much more. It just needs something more. To me it's a block of brown with a hatch, whereas it's larger cousins are far better. I know it has restrictions due to size, but this is one of the very last minis I would consider getting.

And for the record, the MTT is my favorite CIS vehicle apart from the MAF.

I really like this ship full size, and had wanted this, but seeing this, the mini looks a bit dull. The shape is boring. But thanks for the review, it was a set I was really interested in and I appreciate being informed.
