lightningtiger? In the SW forum? Doing a review? What's going on!?!

Anyways, nice part 1. These figures are turning out to be way better than I had expected. Can't wait for part 2 :thumbup:

I'm looking forward to the rest, lightningtiger, because I keep going back and forth on this one.... hopefully you'll push me one way or the other.

Nice to see you doing a review lightningtiger, but it seems you've managed to switch sugi and embos legs, and you've forgot Embo's pirate shoulder guards. cant wait to see part two!

So far so good with this review, lightningtiger.

I really don't like this set, though. The minifigs are pretty ugly looking, except for the assassin, and I already have enough of him.

Okay, time now part two ........

7930_review_14.jpg

This is after step number 9.

7930_review_15.jpg

Okay, now 16 step gives this.

7930_review_16.jpg

Right now, a WTF moment, why ?

Note the 1x1 trans-red round plates.....no one sees them they are covered by 2x2 tile, plus plates and a brick ? :wacko:

7930_review_17.jpg

Cool door mechanism - I like it ! :grin:

7930_review_18.jpg

Well, that's bag one done...just a few more shots of the front of the ship.

7930_review_19.jpg7930_review_21.jpg

Oh, inside the cockpit now.....

7930_review_20.jpg

Note the removable gun rack with blasters, but where does Embo and Sing stored their weapons ? :wink:

Part Three is comming later on tonight once I have uploaded the pictures onto Brickshelf and pass judgement I shall plus show you all Lego's design stuff-up too !

Keep on watching ! :wink:

Okay, quickly now (this will go in as an edit I guess).....now oops my bad on legs issue and Embo now has his shoulder pads on (clothes horse he is :laugh: )...thought it look better aw, well it's Lego.

Now 'prateek' I do like my Star Wars as much as my city stuff, but I thought since I scored this 25% off at Myers (they looked after me well).

So thanks to all so far who have read this review, part three will contain bags 2 and 3 plus the design fault !!!! *oh2*

Till part three.....Brick On Everyone ! :grin:

Here we go bags 2 and 3 in Part Three .......

7930_review_22.jpg

Yep, that's bag number two.

7930_review_23.jpg

Right now we are getting somewhere - this is the start of the wing section.....plus the following shots are the finer points on this design ! :grin:

7930_review_24.jpg7930_review_25.jpg7930_review_26.jpg

You can see the mechanics for the engine rotator in place, you know slide the tail back rotate the engines ! :wink:

7930_review_27.jpg7930_review_28.jpg

A little touch of colour never hurts eh ? :wink:

7930_review_29.jpg

Now thats box two done and dusted ! :grin:

7930_review_30.jpg

Sections one and two together.....next ! :wink:

7930_review_31.jpg

Last bag ! :grin:

7930_review_32.jpg

Now the engines are started.....

Ow, man.....as Ben Tenyson would say.....my computer is now not copy and pasting which means a reboot so there will now be a Part Four .....yay, for Windows ! :angry:

Keep on watching (waiting) ! :blush:

Okay, I'm back......Part Four.....

7930_review_33.jpg

There is method tp Lego's madness, that brown connector holds an aerial piece for the exhausts of the engine. :wink:

7930_review_34.jpg

One completed engine - ready for installation ! :grin:

7930_review_38.jpg

Just quickly - the left overs......reheat for 1 minute ! :laugh:

7930_review_35.jpg

The ship with engines in the landing position.

7930_review_36.jpg

In flight mode......hey, wait a minute - the engines are not in correct flight position they are too over balanced....oh, dear a design boo-boo ! :devil:

7930_review_37.jpg

Fixed, I guess a 2x2 plate would do as well.....now why didn't Lego install a locking mechanism on this ?

Saving the best shot for last ! :grin:

7930_review_39.jpg

SWEET !!!

Now how do I rate this beast eh ?

Price - normally 80 bucks AU....paid 60......I call 8/10

Design - I was going to go 9, but that engine rotating problem......me say 8/10

Minifigs - hands down 10/10.....come on it's Aurra Sing ! :grin:

Build - it neither hard or easy, it took less than 2 hours including photo time (and parts count out :angry: ), so I give 8/10

Overall - lets do the math....34/40 or 8.5/10.....a high grade eh ?

Well, that's it - I'm bushed.....tomorrow back to simple town MOCing and oh, one last thing.......May the brick be with you always ! :yoda:

Nice work! The set looks okay. I do need the minigigures though so I might get this. It's a bit small but that's normal.

Thanks for the rest of the review, lightningtiger. I'm still undecided. I want the minifigs, though certainly don't need another assasin droid.

I wish the ship was a bit bigger. Unless you want to put some of the bounty hunters in the jail, only one can ride! But aren't most sets flawed that way....

I'm caught up on the clone wars, so someone correct me if I'm wrong, but we've still only seen this ship once, right? That's perhaps my biggest sticking point. Perhaps Lego could have found another way to give us the bounty hunters.

That design flaw really bothers me, but I like your solution. Perhaps there's a way without having to detach the 1x2s or a 2x2.

I have a feeling I'll end up with this eventually no matter how much I try to resist. Need something new to build!

I'm not sure, but I think, in the little box, there is a Holocron...

There sure is, as described in the other review on this set.
