Found these deep in my collection and realized we had no review of them on Eurobricks! Seeings as they are basically meant to go together, i reviewed them together. Also, yes i am aware that i have placed the wrong Jedi in the wrong Set (Obi wan should be in 1 and Qui Gon in 2 instead of how i have pictured them), but i took the pictures before i looked it up on brick shelf. Sorry for the bad condition, i played with them a lot when i first got them :P.
Taken from Brickshelf as i have long since lost the boxes
Jedi Defense II comes with Qui Gon and two battle droids. I've heard that this is the only set to contain a red-torso'd 'security droid'.
The droids are using good ol' 'megaphone blasters'
Here's a close up of Qui Gon
Jedi Defense I Has only 1 Minifigure.. Obi-wan. The droideka's are actually brick build, quite engeniously and using no strange or unique parts (apart from a plethora of droid arms).
Here's a close up of Obi-Wan
Here's a close up of a droideka
For the small price and brick count, the minifig count is expected. Although, 3 mini figs in a peice with only 52 bricks (Jedi Defense 2) is quite good. Jedi defense 1 essentially IS mini figures (if you consider the droideka's as minifigs)
Jedi Defense II
The only other included component in Jedi Defense II is a small door.
It slides open using flat bricks
Obi Wan and Qui Gon prepare to attack...
Obi Wan and Qui Gon stand off agianst 2 droidekas
Broken Droid arm... Took it out of storage after a few years and it snapped straight away
Variety of pieces:8/10 - Not much, but what do you expect? The plethora of droid arms used in the droidekas, as well as extra guns/binoculars/trans pieces are very nice. The door is pretty standard
Playability:9/10 - The opening scene of the Phantom Menace was very important to me, as it symbolized the return (although, somewhat lackluster) of star wars to the big screen. It's very fun to act out the opening scene, which is possible when you combine the two sets. The door is pretty useless, but does at a little to playability, or making vignettes.
Build: 7/10 - I can barley remember how it went, but it would not have taken more than ten minutes for each set
Construction: 10/10 - While they look a bit ugly, the droideka design is brilliant! The door is also fairly sturdy.
Minifigs: 9/10 - Can't complain, even though they are still the old 'yellow' style. IMO, Liam Neeson and Ewon Mcgregor were the only two decent actors in the new Star Wars films, which is why i'm proud to own their mini figures ^_^. Also has the 'rare' security droid.
Price: 9/10 - Seven dollars is fair for these tiny sets
A very old set, but still a good one. Basically, two small scenes that combine to make a... slightly less small scene, but an impressive scene at that :P
