On it the fighter, среляющий from blasters, against a planet of Mustafar is represented.
At the top of a box a logo "LEGO Star Wars" hardly more low: an age category, the article, the name.
Minifigures of a set with an inscription "NEW" are below represented

Above all that logo, other sets of a series on the right are represented: 7913, 7914 , 7929. Also set functions are in the middle represented.

I think some words got mixed up in translation but Thanks for the Review  :thumbup:. Another set from the January wave which really impresses me. The minifigure and droid are nice additions and the droid impresses me. The design of the ship is much better than the previous version, as it is not as blocky. The colour choice is also a change to the red.

Thanks for the review Igoran :classic:

Thanks for the review, I quite like this set and I really like R2-Q2. However I think this will be another Star Wars pass for me as I expect it'll just be to much for what it was.

This review needs to mention that the V-Wing should NOT have an R2 unit in it and only the dome of the droid is put on the ship instead of the entire droid.

Thanks for the review. I'm still on the fence about this set, as there are other nice sets at the same price.

Thanks for the review!
Im defintely going to get one of these sometime for the figs, and the ship isn't bad. I think it could do with alittle modifying though. :sweet:
