The long wait is (almost) over, presenting the Home One:
Name: 7754 Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser
Theme: Star Wars
The instructions - there's two booklets:
The pieces - the set was already built when this review was done so suck it up ! But there's 789 of them. Here's the Death Star hologram:
The minifigs - now we're getting somewhere !
The set itself - what do you get for your $$$?
The set basicly consists of two sets - the hangar and the control room. And an A-wing of course!!
The hangar is built with technic pieces and can be lifted up without problems.
There's a crane to lift up the A-wings 454 Big Block engine and a turn-around mechanism.
Here you can see the bottom of the A-wing and where it connects to the turn-around thingy:
Rear with engine visible
Front with cockpit open and engine on the outside
Ze Big Block
And it can move around like a carousel:
The control room is decorated in white, and quite comfortable:
Here's the Admiral himself kicking it back :
He can move around quite a bit - check it out!!!
The hangar & the control room connects with some technic pins and a sliding axle function.
Here's Ackbar at the very edge between them .
And showing the slide mechanism that connects them together again - the yellow lever:
When the Admiral and his trusty friends sleep the back-up crew comes in and messes everything up :
Playability: 9/10 - Lots of stuff to turn and do, merry-go-round here we come!
Design: 8/10 - Looks good, no real time to check it out completly.
Minifigs: 10/10. Excellent exclusive figure, two Mon Calamari heads!
Overall: 9/10. Great ship, great figs, great build. What more could you want?
That's all folks - hope you've enjoyed this first hand look on a great set!
