7133: Bounty Hunter Pursuit

Name: Bounty Hunter Pursuit
Theme: Star Wars Episode II
Set Number: 7133
Pieces: 253
Year released: 2002
Minifigures: 3
Price: Can't remember, but $30.00 according to Peeron


This is one of my favourite sets from episode II. I really love the colours and design of the two speeders. There are also a couple of rare and exclusive pieces included.

Let's start off with the instruction manual.

Posted Image

Back.

Posted Image

The minifig pages.

Posted Image Posted Image

A random page.

Posted Image

And a nice picture of this set that was also in the manual.

Posted Image

The minifigs in this set are Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Zam Wesell.

Posted Image

Obi-Wan is a good fig. His head is only available in this set.

Posted Image Posted Image

Anakin is also a nice figure. I really like his torso with the little ponytail on it :classic:

Posted Image Posted Image

Here are the lightsabers of the two Jedi.

Posted Image

Zam Wesell, the bounty hunter. Here she is her human form without her helmet. Torso and legs are exclusive for this set.

Posted Image

On the back of her head there is an alternative printing. This is what Zam really looks like because she is 'a shapeshifting Clawdite bounty hunter from the planet Zolan. In her true form, Wesell was a green-skinned reptilian, although she often appeared as a Human woman with short reddish-blonde hair, and wore a tight-fitting purple Mabari armorweave bodysuit with a veil over her face.' (from Wookieepedia http://starwars.wiki...iki/Zam_Wessell).

Posted Image

Here she is with her head turned to the front.

Posted Image

Her Clawdit face with her helmet on.

Posted Image Posted Image

And her human face with her helmet on.

Posted Image Posted Image

A shot from the back of the rare helmet (at least in this colour).

Posted Image

Sideview.

Posted Image

A close-up of her rifle.

Posted Image

Watch out, here comes Zam!

Posted Image

The first vehicle that you build in this set is the speeder that Anakin 'borrows' in episode II, a XJ-6 airspeeder (http://starwars.wiki...XJ-6_airspeeder) I really love it. The colours are awesome and it looks exactly like the one from the film

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image

Printed controls piece.

Posted Image

Back.

Posted Image

Bottom.

Posted Image

A close-up of the engines. They can move a little bit up and down.

Posted Image Posted Image

Two nice printed pieces behind the engines.

Posted Image

I took the engines out so that you can take a better look at them.

Posted Image Posted Image

These are the most special pieces from this vehicle.

Posted Image

These slope bricks are exclusive.

Posted Image

Also two exclusive pieces.

Posted Image

Two rare tile pieces.

Posted Image

Shiny headlights.

Posted Image

Anakin and Obi in the speeder.

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image

Ready for action.

Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image

Anakin holding the 'steering wheel'.

Posted Image

A look from the back.

Posted Image

There's a storage compartment in the back.

Posted Image

You can put the lightsabers in it.

Posted Image

Or not.

Posted Image


I couldn't get all the photos in one post, so part 2 of the review is a couple of posts down.

Are the two engine pieces R2 body style with holes in the side? Because they could come in  handy for making black astromechs being repaired.

They definitely are astromech body pieces, and they would look cool in a droid repair scene.

Thanks for another great review, Mischa07!

That looks even better than I thought.  I seriously considered buying this last year, but the price is too steep for such a small set.... But it looks great :wub:

This really is, in my opinion, worth the price. I paid an even $60.00 USD for it last year, MISB. I would much rather spend the money on something like this than a big set like the Venator with too few figs.

The second vehicle in this set is Zam Wesell's speeder, the Koro-2 Exodrive airspeeder (http://starwars.wiki...rive_airspeeder). Also nicely designed and with a lot of colour and exlusive pieces.

Posted Image Posted Image

From above.

Posted Image

Bottom.

Posted Image

The windscreen can of course open up.

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image

A printed piece inside the cockpit.

Posted Image

Lovely printings on the 'wings'.

Right wing.

Posted Image Posted Image

Left wing.

Posted Image Posted Image

The cockpit (open).

Posted Image

The cockpit closed.

Posted Image

By pulling these two transparant pieces back you can drop the wings.

Posted Image

I pulled one and you can see it releasing in the top of the photo.

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image

The wing still in place.

Posted Image

And not in place anymore.

Posted Image

This picture from the instruction manual shows how it works.

Posted Image

You can see the elastic bands in this photo.

Posted Image

The speeder without its wings.

Posted Image Posted Image

From above.

Posted Image

Right wing.

Posted Image

Left wing.

Posted Image

Both.

Posted Image

Here are the most special pieces from this vehicle. The windscreen is exclusive to this set.

Posted Image

Two exclusive pieces from this set.

Posted Image

Two nice smoke slope bricks.

Posted Image

As seen earlier. Exclusive to this set.

Posted Image

Zam Wesell inside the cockpit. I placed the rifle behind her because I didn't know where else to put it.

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image

A look at the complete set.

Posted Image

Price: 9/10 - It thought this was pretty cheap for two speeders with three great figs.
Parts: 9/10 - A lot of variety and lots of rare and exclusive parts.
Playability: 8/10 - A played a lot with it when I was younger.
Minifigs: 8/10 - Anakin and Obi-Wan look good and Zam Wesell (who is awesome) is only available in this set.
Final: 9/10 - As I said before, one of my favourite episode II sets and of LEGO Star Wars in general.

Great review  :thumbup: . This is one of the few SW sets that actually broke the mold and become special (At least in my opinion) in the whole line. That because this is one of the very few civilian sets available in the SW line. The only other sets I can remember by now that are civilian themed are the Sandcrawler, Cloud City and Twin Pod Cloud Car.

Thanks for the great review.

Despite the fact that I do not like the original vehicles (too colourful for my own tastes), the LEGO versions are indeed a perfect rendition of them.

And the minifigs are 10/10. I like these old-style SW minis (with yellow heads) way more than the current ones.

Yet another Star Wars from which I'd love to have just the minifigs. Spaceships just don't do it for me, but the minifigs are very luscious!

But thanks for the very good, detailed review. :wink:

Even though I hated the movie, this set was just too good to pass up when I saw it on sale a couple of years ago. The vehicles are designed very well, even if I have since taken them apart. And the minifigs are excellent, especially Zam Wessel, who's human head is an excellent piece for harem scenes and such.

Brilliant review, you have done justice to this greatly underrated set. I got it for around $70 US last year or the year before and it was definitely worth it, the quality is fantastic, printed pieces everywhere, chromed pieces and the brilliant Zam minifig.

I never liked this set and still don't. The minifigs are good, but the rest isn't that interesting.
It's not a great scene in the film and Lego whise you can't link this set to any other sets.

Wow, I can't disagree with you more, it's was a very entertaining scene in the movie and ties in very well.  It works by itself, and I understand it's not a tie fighter but it's still a fun set.  I think just because you can't play with it with every other LEGO set doesn't mean it's a bad set.


As for the review, the pictures look great, lots of views and very clear, I know this is like a half a year old but if the OP is still around, nice review!

I think it is a good review. The only downside in my opinon is all the pictures. I think it is to many.
You cover the same thing from so many angles in different pictures.
This comes out as very bad, but it is not. I think you should cut down the numbers of pictures and chose the once you really like the best.
You could easily cover the whole set with something around 20-30 pictures, not 90. Maybe I am the only one thinking so.
Other than that, it is really great.

To the set it self, if you don´t got it don´t do one of those famous "I wait until the price drops down on that Wattos Junkyard".
It never does!!  :tongue:
I really love this set because of all the printed parts. They really got both of those ships very accurate.
Zam´s speeder is really a great set, and the figure as well.
What I have done with one of the versions of Zam is to put a Leia head on here.
On another version I put this merman head. It looks really good as well.
