7113: Tusken Raider Encounter
Name: Tusken Raider Encounter
Theme: Star Wars Episode II
Set Number: 7113
Year released: 2002
Price: Can't remember, but $10.00 according to Peeron
A neat little set from episode II with two great minifigs designs.
First things first; the instruction manual.
And the backside.
And a nice photo that was also in the manual.
Now we move on to the minifigs.
A yelllow Anakin Skywalker with cape and lightsaber plus two (awesome) Tusken Raiders with rifles.
Ani. Love the chrome lightsaber. It's a real shame they barely use them anymore these days.
Front and backside of the Sandpeople. Love the torsos and faces.
Next up is the moisture vaporator. A bit of a useless addition to this set, though it looks good.
It can also open up. Don't really understand what's the use but hey, I'll show it anyway.
A printed piece inside the vaporator.
The Tuskens with the moisture vaporator. I wish LEGO had included one of the Tusken tents instead of the vaporator. Well, atleast it isn't as ugly as the vaporator from #7101: Lightsaber Duel (http://www.brickset....ail/?Set=7101-1).
Finally, there's Anakin's speeder bike. You can see that there's only one of these http://media.peeron....ages/8/2555.png on the front of the bike. The other one broke, so I had to replace it with a light grey one (didn't have a matching one). You can see the speeder has a little pin for it to rest on when it's not being used.
There's also a flap at the back.
Anakin, who is ready to hop on.
The speeder looks good, but it's a bit wobbly. The red plates at the front are hard to keep symmetrical.
And here's a look at the complete set. As I've said before, I love the Tuskens. The speeder is alright, Anakin is always a good addition and the moisture vaporator is completely useless in my opinion.
Price: 8/10 - Cheap set back in the day and the only way to get these Tusken Raiders.
Parts: 7/10 - Nothing too special except the pretty unique moisture vaporator tile.
Playability: 8/10 - Good, because it has both good and bad guys.
Minifigs: 9/10 - Love the Tuskens.
Final: 8/10 - Solid set with great minifigs, okay speeder, usless vaporator
