7261 Clone Turbo Tank
Price: £70.00 (ouch! )
EDIT: new box pics added.
My version of the set comes with a normal Mace Windu figure and an extra clone trooper. Also the Mace Windu, BARC trooper and jet trooper minifigs were exclusive to the set (Well you could make the jet trooper yourself) . Also my set came with 4 extra blasters (you'll see them later) and Baby blue vent things instead of trans blue.
1.Manual & Box
The front of the box.
The box compared to the motorized AT-AT and the hailfire droid and dwarf spider droid.
The back which has pics of the sets functions and alternate models.
Inside the box it has a white cardboard divider probably for strength seeming as the box it so flimsy.
Pretty hefty manual.
The TT manual compared to the one of the AT-AT ones.
Another random shot.
Poster at the back of the manual
2. General set and minifigs
The whole set. I accidentally left one of the plates up when I took the pic.
Close up of the figs.
Two battle droids come with blasters and a mini turret.
The republic. From L-R: Jet Trooper, Mace Windu (not LUL), BARC Trooper, Normal Clone, The Commander, Look out.
BARC trooper legs.
BARC trooper torso. He has got to be my favorite clone trooper by TLC.
The mysterious commander. On LSW he was called Cody (right) but he has star corps Armour making him commander Bly (left) .
Normal Clone and the look out Clone with electro binoculars.
3. Speeder Bike
Side view of the BARC Speeder.
Menacingish front view. (is menasingish a word?)
Printed back engine piece.
One of my shield things came with a crumpled handle it is worse than it looks in the pic.
4. The turret
It can rotate and point upwards.
But what if you want to blast all those Battle droids that are shorter than the height of the turret blasters... add another hinge in!
That extra hinge in action.
5. The Tank
It's to big to get a decent side view pic
Johnny the cabin boy on the crows nest.
Front 2 seater cockpit.
The 2 seats. Better be careful you don't fall off your seat there are some pretty big gaps down the sides.
Back cockpit with dual missile launchers.
The back seat.
The large central storage.
The turret controls fold down to lock into place so it doesn't fall out when driving.
You can put 2 minifigs up top.
Mace and a Clone driving. you can see those 4 extra blasters, 2 orange at the front of the pic and 2 between the chairs.
The turret and jet trooper.
BARC trooper on the BARC speeder.
The commander on the lift chair in the back cockpit.
Another shot of that chair.
Build: 8/10 Quite enjoyable because it incorporates Technic and system parts.
Minifigs: 9/10 On a set this size it has quite a lot including some exclusives such as the BARC trooper but it could of had a droid or 2 more.
Design: 7/10 way out of scale but generally pretty strong due to the technic frame.
Parts: 7/10 Lots of plates and nice minifig parts.
Price: 6/10 Justifiable because of the amount of figs in the set.
Playability: 7/10 Includes some CIS units to fight the clones.
Overall:8/10 Needs more droids and it could be bigger.
I will also probably have a break form reviewing for now seeming as I have just put out a whole load of reviews.
