Second review to day of the second planet set 9675 Sebulba's Podracer & Tatooine.

The box again looks great but still has those design flaws I talked about in the Naboo planet review.

A extra bag with the minifig this time. Many more parts in this set even if they are smaller.

Posted Image

The planet part is again the same print on both parts.

The sebulba fig is the same from last summers podracer set so this is a nice cheap way to get him.

Posted Image

The printed plaque for this set.

Posted Image

The build is very good for a mini set and has a good parts selection.

Posted Image

The finshed Podracer is very good!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

The stand is simple but looks nice.

Posted Image

The finished set looks impressive on display! Well for a mini. :laugh:

Posted Image

Tatooine looks better than Naboo and the print lines up perfectly!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Not alot left over. The hanging part is included here.

Posted Image

The full set.

Posted Image

A good set in the planet series again. The mini Podracer is very well built and the fig is a good chance to get a rare fig cheap. The planet looks perfect with none of the printing issues I had with Naboo!

Nice review. The planet protruding out of the box looks interesting. Any idea where the set is made in?

Nice second review, mutley777! Too bad I bought the podracer set last year.  :sceptic:

Thanks again for the review, the pod racer surprisingly looks quite good at this scale, already have Sebulba from last years pod-racer set so highly unlikely would get this

I wish I would have waited to buy Sebulba.  The orange cheese slopes would have been a nice addition to my collection.

This set is a no brainer, with a $10 sebulba and the mini and the planet mold, it's great.

I wasn't too excited about these 3 sets, but the planet molds make them worth it to me.

Great review again, it's nice that you did all 3 at once so we weren't left wonder on any of them.

My least favorite out of them, but the planet is my second favorite. Honestly I have no interest in the podracer, but it's a nice way to get that minifugre for cheap, albeit I'm not a fan of sebulba's design

I've bought this set today, and I thought I'll be the first to review it.
Well, obviously not. I'm still going to make a review, though.
This is my favorite among all the planet sets, although I'm planning to
get TIE Interceptor with DS, too.


Thank you for a review.

Ah, Sebulba....I'll get this one at any price...within reason of course. :blush:
Thanks for the review ' mutley777 ', I do like the pod-racer...appears to have much more building than the Naboo Starfighter ? :wink:

I feel exactly the same way.

As soon as I found out about the planet sets I didn't bother buying Sebulba. I sincerely hope that this is a long term project for Lego so that I may add the planet collection to my minifigure collection.  :grin:

I can't quite tell with my monitor, but are the trans colored lightsaber blades purple or pink?

Thank you for the review!
I had the original mini podracer and I am very impressed on how much it improved!
This is, I think, the best set vehicle-wise :classic:

Nice review!  

I would have preferred a Mini Landspeeder with the new Tatooine Luke minifig, but the pod is well done.

I find this set overpriced when you compare it to others currently available. £9.99? For a Mini, a Planet and a fig? No way.

I have to say I was originally going to pass on these sets, but after seeing them in your reviews I’m kind of liking the display stands and the accompanying plants. Now I just have to figure out where to display them?
