Hello everyone until now I've been a silent readeron this Forum and I really enjoyed reading the lots of SW Lego reviews on this site, so I decided to do a few myself :D
First let me introduce myselfs properly:
My name is Robert, I am 20years old and I live in Germany. I am a apprentice for Salesman at a toy store in a small town near Berlin (yay I have to sell my favorite toy Legos for a living :D). My other hobbies are Videogames (I would call myself a PS fanboy cause I have the Ps1,2 and 3), learning to play the guitar :/ it's really hard I think and well building Legos but I'm not a hardcore Lego fan like most of you. Well okay that should do it for the start now to the review. Oh and sorry for my possibly bad english.
7251 Vaders Transformation
This set released like all sets from the ROTS line in summer 05 with the film, I bought this set with the droid tri fighter the clone scout walker and the general grievious chase set (which i sold *sigh* but i kept the figs) after I saw the movie as a child/tween. I spended like 60€ for all these sets but I cant remember what each did individual cost, I think this set was 10€ maybe even less something like 8€ and I think it's, well was a great set for this price.
The instructionbook, it has 14 pages and strangely no itemlist at the end.
a random page
a injured Anakin
Vader without his helmet, why is his skin grey after the transformation?
Vader with helmet
and the Droid - well not a Minifig but still pretty cool
now all the building bricks
and finally the completed set - Anakin in front
Vader in front
A few other vievpoints
from the side, you can see the anakin figure disappearing between the two pillars
a view from the back - nothing special here
and a view from the droid
Conclusion and Score:
I think this is a good set, I bought this a when ROTS came out because I was hyped from the movies and I was a "Kid" but I don't regret this decision now, I got 2 Minifigs, a small setpiece and a droid for like 10�‚�. Overall I would give this set a 7/10.
Pieces: nothing special so 6/10
Minifigs: You cant ask for more, after all you get a Vader 9/10
Playability: well you can switch the stand and change Anakin to Vader but thats not much 7/10
Desing: I think this is a pretty cool set piece and a key scene from the movie so 10/10
Ps. damn I dont know how to add a poll sorry, if anyone could tell me I would do that in my future reviews.
