Hi everybody!! Today I gonna review on of the best Star Wars 2012 sets - 9494

The box

I really like this new design of the box, with new Darth Mall face. It's better than old Darth Vader

Contents

4 bags, instruction and stickers
Each bag is only half full, so Lego probably might do only to bags

Instruction
Nice & new design
Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image
Bag №1
For some people who loves to built minifigs and some small stuff this bag is the best. But I want a starfighter!
That's what we get from the first bag. Nute Gunray and other droids are somewhere near :)

Some interesting pieces
Lava, pink color, trans-clea parts!! This is awesome!
Posted Image
Spare parts
Posted Image
Bag №2
Don't know why, but lego devided starfighter in to three(!) bags
Posted Image
More interesting parts
Not as much as in first one but still preaty good
Posted Image
Spare
Posted Image
Bag №3
One more wing and I will be able to fly on mine starfighter!
Posted Image
Useful/interesting pieces

Bag 4.
Last wing....nothing really interesting
There is one part that I consudered as "interesting". It's only in bag №4
Posted Image
Spare are the same

Really good review! Are you planning to do a review of the 9495 Y-wing too?

Nice review. A set I don't think I'll pick up but certainly a review that is making me think twice. Need to watch the prequels again as when was Gunray sand greeny in colour?.

I've never had the problem when the "skirt/dress" legs dont match up with the torso but I'm sure it'll happen soon.

Thanks for the review, the minifigs may yet convince me to get this set.

He wears that face when shopping.   :laugh:    sorry

Thanks for the review. Great set but in Sweden this is equal to $70  :sick: .  Will however get it anyway.
Wish the securitydroid had printing though.

Does the security droid really not have printing, or is it a mistake?
Edit: I just checked the pic; it does not. :angry: Why?!?!

Thanks for this review. The updated minifigs look pretty good, but I'm going to pass on this set. It's a great looking set; it just doesn't have much for an OT fan such as myself.

The updated Pilot Battle Droids have tan printing on their torsos.

Edit: Brickdocter beat me to it.  This is what I am talking about.
This is from last year's Naboo Starfighter, so there is no reason TLG could not do the same here.

Nice review.

I still don't like that Lego didn't give ROTS Gunray the correct hat.

Very nice review! I can't wait until I get this set. I'm guessing Nute Gunray doesn't have a reversable face?

Thanks 'ZoomZoom' for the review of this very COOL set, this is the main set my son wants this year....though I haven't told him about the arrest set yet  :blush:
In my opinion one of the best Star Wars fighter craft released, just the right amount of detailing and the astromech goes in whole !  :wink:
The battle scene....fantastic and you can pose and position the figures/platforms differently as the battle rages.....that's why my son wants it ! :sweet:
The Jedi's....one fallen and the other not are great, especial the newly crowned Vader....oh, those eyes - he looks a bit upset eh ? :grin:
Oh, and poor Gunray - top and bottom not matching....doesn't matter he dies anyway ! :devil:
You didn't rate the figures, build or price 'ZoomZoom' ?
Anyway, thanks again for the review 'ZoomZoom'....Brick On Review On ! :classic:

Nice review. I think I will pass on this though, as an army builder, I think that my funds might be better spent Thanks for the food for thought though.

This is by far the best set of this wave! The ship is way better then the old version, and the inclusion of the platform and the droid thing.

The minifigs are really what make this set great, though. The droids are not that big a deal, but Vader, Kenobi and Gunray are superb! Gunray is a way better fig that the CW one. Obi-Wan is just plain epic. The face is perfect, and the double sided face is just icing on the cake. But Vader! Wow! The Sith face looks a bit creepy, but it works great, and the angry side looks awesome. The printing detail is the best that has been done for any Jedi yet!

Anyway, I have noting but great things to say about this set! Thanks for the review!

Don't hate me but this is also the one set that I'm absolutely looking forward to. It's a combination of the minfigs and the Jedi Starfighter that do it for me. They're both just vast improvements to and superior to the previous releases. I really can't wait until I see this set in person. I may break down and actually pay full retail for this one. I've gotta be strong, I've gotta be strong.

thx for the review, figs are rehashes and never been a fan of the 'solid' robe that has been used on nute and despite some interesting bits like the cockpit and the trans pieces will not be picking this up, need to save $ for other SW, DC and LotR sets

Great review, thanks!  :classic:

This is a fantastic set, one of the best in this wave IMO.  I would gladly pay full retail for this one, but will most likely wait for a sale.

Nice review for a nice set. Not cool seeing Gunray... That seems to be an ongoing problem with them. Hopefully they'll get it sorted out soon and the next batch will be fixed. This is on my list for sure.

I love how descriptive this review was, the comparisons and reference photos really show the intricacies of the set.
