I've eventually finished mine. Lots of spares left over, and a few stickers I left off/spare. I'd higlt reccommend this over the AT-TE, cheaper, better figures (Only Rotta and Rex are exclusive to that, Obi Wan, Plo Koon, Cody & Asajj are exculsive to this.) Nice build.

Build: 8/10
Pieces: 9/10
Stickers: 6/10
Figures: 10/10
Playability: 8/10
Swooshability: 8/10 (Tad Heavy  :tongue: )

Overall: 9/10

No Rotta comes with the Twilight. Rex is the only exclusive which is why im going to buy him off ebay.

Good luck not paying much! i bet it will be very expensive ...... :tongue:
Better than getting a 100 quid set for 2 Clones and a AT-TE I wont really use...He will proberbly be like 10...

EDIT: Ebay sellers will make a Profit from selling Rexs, Lego will lose money for less AT-TEs being sold (The only reason I like the AT-TE is for Rex and the clone)

pic

it is the exost(spelling?) ports for the engine. the just used that peice so that it will be the right slope, it is not a compartment


by the way, unlike popular beleif those two big things on top of the rgs are not thrusters they are gigantic missile lauchers.

The set is £80, the Droid Gunship is £35, the V-19 Torrent is £50 and the AT-TE is £100.

I already know from another reliable Uk source that the AT-TE is £64.99.
Your price must be an error  :wink:

On Amazon.co.uk the AT-TE is listed for 70£. Hope, you are right, then I can buy more Doctor Who actionfigures.^^

P.S. Has anybody the exact weight for the Spider-Walker?

Now thats more like it, I was wondering why the Old AT-TE cheaper than the Old RGS and the New RGS is cheaper than the New AT-TE (If that makes sense)  :tongue:

If the Ultimate Space Battle wasn't 180$ due to stupid Bricklink money pigs... and the ARC-170 wasn't 90$ due to stupid Bricklink money pigs... I'd buy those ships. But it's too bad that all they could care about is... money. Oh god it's depressing me. The RGS is NOT my favourite ship style-wise, look-wise or fig-wise. CW isn't my thing either. But because I missed out...? Too bad for me!

Oh yes and thank you for the review. A little skimpy on words and it didn't really criticise or praise the set... but the pictures were all very good and nonetheless I think this deserves to be frontpaged.

Picked up a copy today for US $120 at Target.  Wasn't expecting it to be quite that much.  It's a nice set, but for that price I really would have liked a few extra clones.

They were first found in UK, in Woolworths but now they have "You can´t buy me until 26th July" codes.

P.S. Did anybody try to put the Cody sunscreen on a Phase II helmet? And can somebody post pics of Assaijs skirt?

You can't put the viser on the phase 2 helmets.  The phase one helmets have little holes in the sides.

I agree. But Lego is my drug. Even if the lego in canada are THE MOST OVERPRICED IN THE WORLD I must buy them!
The 140$ price is ridiculous, but I will even buy it because it is a very very cool set.

did i not explain it clearly?

the door above the gun in this pic

Visit My Website

is not evan a door, tlc just used that peice to get the right slope. this sticker on that mentoined peice is supposed to represent the thrusters.

those things on top are not thrusters/engins they are just missile launchers

look at the atachment

i did not meen to put "look at my websight" thingy sorry, not my website

also the slits in the back of the missile lauchers are for excess missile excaust
