7113: Tusken Raider Encounter

Name: Tusken Raider Encounter
Theme: Star Wars Episode II
Set Number: 7113
Pieces: 90
Year released: 2002
Minifigures: 3
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.

Posted Image

And the backside.

Posted Image

Minifig page.

Posted Image

Random page.

Posted Image

And a nice photo that was also in the manual.

Posted Image

Now we move on to the minifigs.

A yelllow Anakin Skywalker with cape and lightsaber plus two (awesome) Tusken Raiders with rifles.

Posted Image

Ani. Love the chrome lightsaber. It's a real shame they barely use them anymore these days.

Posted Image

Front and backside of the Sandpeople. Love the torsos and faces.

Posted Image Posted Image

Next up is the moisture vaporator. A bit of a useless addition to this set, though it looks good.

Posted Image Posted Image

It can also open up. Don't really understand what's the use but hey, I'll show it anyway.

Posted Image

A printed piece inside the vaporator.

Posted Image Posted Image

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).

Posted Image Posted Image

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.

Posted Image

There's also a flap at the back.

Posted Image

Anakin, who is ready to hop on.

Posted Image

The speeder looks good, but it's a bit wobbly. The red plates at the front are hard to keep symmetrical.

Posted Image Posted Image

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.

Posted Image

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  :tongue:

Thank you for reviewing one of my favorite sets. I love the tusken minifigs and who would say no to an anakin fig so this set is worthwhile. And it was cheap (10$s I think)

Another nice review!  The instructions picture of the minifigures has always made me laugh: Anakin looks like a demented frog!  Also, Mischa07, you said "A neat little set from episode II with two great minifigs."  Did you mean two great minifig designs?  It doesn't matter, I just wanted to point that out.

I loved and still love this set, but you're completely right about the speeder bike being flimsy.  Just a little fun fact: That printed vaporator piece also comes in green in the Spider-Man origins set, the one with Osborn turning into the Green Goblin is his lab.

I loved this set! I got it so long ago, and I still use the Tusken raiders as "flashback" characters for psycho Vader.  :tongue:

Great review!  :thumbup:

Great review  :thumbup: . I really think this set is one of those I really wanted to buy but never had the chance  :cry_sad:  :tongue: . The whole set is one of the smartest packs I have seen from the TLC. Think about it, this is the perfect combination, a little "ship", some b"background" elelments and exclusive figs, also you can add the exceptional price. Looking at sets like this one I really miss the old days when the TLC gave us some really great little sets apart from random battlepacks  :hmpf: .

This would be a great set new; the speeder bike and the Tusken Raiders are both lovable :wub:

Did I review your Academy review and you've waited more than three days for a follow up after you fixed it?  PM me.  I'll get it done.

The speeder is great, the figs are great - what's not to like about this one?
Only bad thing is that this was the only set to feature the awesome Tusken Raiders :hmpf_bad:
