(03.02.09) This is my third review. It features:
Product: 7200 Final Duel I
Theme: Star Wars
No of pieces: 29
Release Date: 2002
RRP: USD $6.99
Featured Episodes: ROTJ
Lego "Shop at Home" Catalog Description
Luke Skywalker is being escorted to Emperor Palpatine, who waits in the Death Star's throne room. Just when it seems the Emperor will achieve his ultimate victory, a spectacular lightsaber duel leads to an unexpected turn of events, and the Emperor is finally defeated at the hands of Darth Vader! Ages 6-12. 29 pieces.
This is the set. It consists of the two figs as well as the Emperor's swivel chair on a 6x6 base. It uses the TIE cockpit as his window.
As you can see, the normal Darth Vader is included along with a rare Palpatine, only previously released in the Imperial Shuttle. This Palpatine has yellow hands, however.
A closer look at the chair and window. You can see control panels on the arms for the Emperor to use.

An average set, in my opinion. I can't see why anyone would buy it for any other reason than for the figs. The set is very basic indeed and best used to recreate the Final Duel scene when accompanied by 7201. I bought it in InStore for £2 which was worth it for the Palpatine fig. The new design from the 10188 Death Star will hopefully be resold in a smaller set like this soon.
Design: 5/10 - A very simple design but the chair looks accurate.
Minifigs: 7/10 - A cheap way to get Vader and the rare Palpatine fig (unique with yellow hands).
Playability: 4/10 - Not much to do with the set at all, just put Palpatine in his chair. Best to combine it with Final Duel II.
Swooshability: n/a - Not a vehicle.
Overall: 5.3/10 - An accurate calculated score.

KimT, you can add it to the index if you like. I made it to fill the gap. Also, you may add a vote to it and give any more suggestions.
