The complete set.

Price: ?/10 - Can't remember.
Parts: 10/10 - This has a lot of great parts such as the Gungan heads, the kaadus, the blue bombs and the shield.  
Playability: 8/10 - This was a favourite of mine when I was younger. Great for creating the Battle of Naboo scene from "The Phantom Menace".
Minifig: 8/10 - Pretty good. The Gungan Soldier is a nice addition. Couldn't care less for Jar Jar because I already have him a couple of times. But nice if you haven't got him.
Final: 8/10 - Good set with good minifigs.

Great review Mischa07!
I always like seeing reviews of Star Wars sets that were released before 2006 (when I started liking LEGO).  :classic:

According to Peeron, the MSRP price was $10.00 USD.

By the way, what are those trans-blue cylinders for?

Good, because I'm going to do a whole lot more of them   :laugh: And thanks for the compliments!

Those 'trans-blue cylinders' are those energy bombs that the Gungans use in the film (if you can remember).

I think I'll use the prices from Peeron from now on, because I don't know what I paid for almost any of the sets that I have.

They're supposed to be those electricity energy ball things the Gungan's threw during the end battle of episode 1.

Thanks, Mischa07!  I also like reviews of these older sets, since my dark age lasted from about 1995 to 2006.  This set I managed to get on eBay, since I just had to have my own Jar-Jar.  The kaadus are also pretty great, and I love the Gungan soldier and his shield.

Thanks for explaining what those trans-blue cylinders are guys!  :classic:
By the way I've actually never watched a Star Wars movie (except for Star Wars: The Clone Wars).  :tongue: I watched a bit of the movie where Anakin becomes Darth Vader, but that's it.
I have no idea why I like LEGO Star Wars so much...  :tongue:

EDIT: I voted above average because it comes with gungans and kaadus.  :thumbup:

Ooh, this is one of the few Star Wars sets I really want! All the creatures in it are so nice, and the Gungan Soldier's torso and shield would suit fantastically to an elf or a fairy character.

Nice review of a set that I find quite nice, but I'd love to see more of your opinions in your reviews and more comments about the set.  You should really think about joining the Reviewers Academy, it certainly helped me become a better reviewer and post reviews that are even more interesting for the rest of us.

Great start reviewing, though!

It's a wonderful place where they teach you how to make brilliant review. Just go to the website and forms thread and find the pinned topic about it there. It is really worthwhile.

Masked Builder I am not sure you are aware of this but you bumped a review well over a year old.  I am not sure how frowned upon bumping reviews is and I am not trying to mini-mod but there is a chance that the reviewer is not currently an active member on Eurobricks.  Not trying to be a jerk but just a heads up for future reference.

The question is a good one though, which is asked "in the open air".
Anyone with this set can answer and hopefully someone will.
It's better to ask such a question in the review, instead of making a brand new topic.

A good example of an allowed bumpin' :classic:

Sorry Kim T like I said I wasn't trying to mini mod, just help.  Unfortunately I do not own yhe set so I can't help.  & sorry Masked Builder I wasn't trying to be a jerk just help out.  Hope you get the answer you need. :classic:

The Kaadu itself is six bricks tall and the "feather" tubes are nine bricks tall for a total height of sixteen bricks. It looks around five or six inches tall as well. Hope that helps a bit.

By the way, nice review. I've always liked this set-the Gungan warrior is one of my favorite Star Wars mini-figs. I would have liked a second one included instead of yet another Jar-Jar, but luckily I found lots of these sets discounted making it easy to build up a small army.
