So while my brothers out of town, I picked this up, I was on a late night shopping trip at a local store, Moore wilsons, Getting boxes to sort our collection.
Anywho, I saw this on the self, and though, 'sweet' i mean, I need some more C.I.S vehicles, I didn't really look it over, so when I opened it I was stoked to see 2 jetpacks! The set looks small but is only about 1-2 studs shorter than the older one. There are many pro's and cons as far as the two sets go, this one has not trand orange, but also has no wookies, anywho, onto the reveiw.
I've got in progress shots of it being built, sorry about where they're taken. I honestly couldn't be bothered setting up a place for them.
Pretty simple, It's got the new Clone wars box design on it.
It's also got the new sets on the back, and some pictures of the features.
The peices and the instructions:
As you can see it comes in 3 plastic bags, while the big disc plates are seperate.
The new jetpacks are cool, and with foure figures, it's fairly decent.
The tank droid:
The main body is really sturdy, nothing like the old one, The is also no room for a droid inside it, another good feature!
The top 'runner' for the track attached, The whole framework utilizes technique and bricks well.
The plates attached: They're really sturdy, and look much better when they're not trans orange.
Demonstrating how the 'pontoons' can move.
Jumping on a bit, and the eyes make use of the rightangle back peices, the techique bit holds the 'guns'
And finaly the guns attached, I did it differently to the book, and the flcik fire missle system, is again, a failure..
And the final shots. The 'tread' actually fits this time, and there are only 56? or 54? peices of tread opposed to the other ones 69 peices.
Time taken (including photos): 30 mintues
Price, NZD: $42
Time: 5/10 quick build
Structure:8/10 sturdy and compact
Pieces:9/10 Jetpacks are awesome and I might get another one for parts!
Design: 7/10 I hate flick fire missles..
Box: 9/10 I like it.
Final score 38/50
I'd recommend it, it's a fun little set, and is a good edition to your Sep army! It's kinda like the hoth set, A big battlepack..
Meh it's good.
