Not at all impressed by this very avarage set!


This set was just over �25 when it came out and it does not take a genius to work out which ones better!

Yeah, but when a used and incomplete one (i.e. no minifigs) is $60+ USD on Bricklink, I'll pass.   :thumbdown:

Yeah, you've got a point, especially as Greedo is gold dust now.  However, if like me you missed out on 4501, you might well settle for the new one.

Looks like I'm settling then. :)  :thumbup:

Sorry mutley, but I have to disagree with you this time.

I havn't got this set yet, but hope to get it soon. I personally think it is a very nice design, sure, room for improvement, but nice, none the less. I'm going to ingnore price, as I don't think It's fair to compare a 2004 SWL price to a 2010 one. We all know thay have changed durasticly.

To be honest, 4501 was a really bad set, set wise. Sure, Greedo is great, as is the dewback/sandtrooper. But the set itself was rubbish.

I'm happy with just a landspeeder to be honest. Nice enough figs (would have loved a dewback though  :cry_happy: ) And IMO, the landspeeder is quite a good model.

I'm looking forward to this set  :classic:

Thanks for the great review!

I just bought this set on Friday. I drove around for two hours visiting about 6 stores before I finally found it (at the one closest to my house :hmpf_bad:)

Although you have a great point, I am thrilled for it since I missed the last one, and the figs are now updated to flesh.

Great review!

It is a big opportunity for collectors to own the classic minifigs from the beginning of the old Trilogy.

But personnally, I won't get this set. I already have C-3PO and R2 from the 7106 Droid Escape. And I also own the 4501 Mos Eisley Cantina.

Otherwise, this set gives me the idea to make custom epaulets for my stormtroopers of the Imperial Landing Craft set.
Maybe I will cut in half a Lego black cape or use black polyester tissue.

Cause I think it supposed to be Sandtroopers in this set and there are only the officers that have (orange) epaulets.

I like the set, but the price will blast a hole through my wallet

Any ideas when this set is coming out in Australia? Has it been out & I missed it (not long out of my DA)? Is/was it exclusive to a particular store? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

I can't see Shop@Home NOT having it.  I found it in Wal-Mart so it's definetaly not exclusive to any particular store.

Actually, I do believe this set is exclusive to Wal-Mart, in the United States anyway. TRU online does not have it and the local TRU never had it either. I've never seen it (or a spot on the shelf for it) at Fred Meyer, K-mart, Target or Shopko either. Only at Wal-Mart.

Thanks guys, it has recently appeared as "NEW" on the Australian S@H store but usually the brick & mortars have sets at a better price. We also get some weird store exclusives in Australia. I asked in a local Toyworld store and they said there might be another round of new stuff mid year as it's not featured in our 2010 catalogue. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

A nice-looking set, though I'm not sure why they didn't keep the more accurate sand-red color scheme, or at least use dark tan.

I'm not sure Lego even makes bricks in sand red anymore. Maybe someone else knows?

This is a fabulous buy for the collector, and will definitely be worth triple the current price in a few years if kept sealed in mint condition. I got one from my local toys r us for £24.99 which i thought is a bargain for the amount of figures you get!

Sure, the cantina set was better, and i would love to see more dewbacks, but in the current price climate of SW Lego i would DEFO snap this one up if i were a collector  :thumbup:
