Today I received the set from Amazone France (ordered on the 26th). Because it's my daughters birthday I don't have much time today to build it and review it but I made some quick photos. Anyway here we go:
Side of box:
Box - upcoming sets and some details of the set
Box - Overview of inside
The Bags - 4 in total:
The Manuals - 2 in total:
Sticker for the canopy:
Medical droid wrapped in individual bag:
Medical droid complete:
All minifigs are in bag no.1
The new Clone Pilot:
Ok, found some time to build the cockpit
Without the side pieces:
With the sides attached:
I must admit I really like this part of the shuttle, it feels (looks) really authentic. I holds 1 seat for the Clone Pilot.
What I also discovered (in the manual)is that the helmet of Darth Vader can be attached to his head with some sort of movement of parts...and then he will stand upwards when the movement is finished:
Today I will try to finish the shuttle. Will post photos along the way. If you want any specific info or photo let me know and I will try to help.
First for Ras 74:
The different stages of adding the helmet to the head of Darth Vader and putting him on his feet:
Overview of the sick-bay
Helmet attached to "mechanics"
Helmet almost attached to Anakin (AKA Darth Vader):
Darth Vader upwards and ready for battle:
Oke about this part of the construction:
I like the build so far, it's not really repetive and details are great. Also seats for everyone which is a nice extra.
Storage area for the Lightsabers, 1 for Darth and 1 for Palpatine:
Bag 1 (cockpit) + Bag 2 (Base) attached:
Landing gear, looks really good:
Wings attached to open base:
Wings in upward position:
Finished Shuttle, overview: (all minifigs inside)
Back of Shuttle:
Side view (top wing 1 side studs 1 side not) negative point in my view
I must admit I have really liked the build this of this Shuttle. Nice little details and it looks like the "real" deal. Minifigs are great and 4 is not bad.
70 Euro is a bit to much I gues but that counts for more LSW sets these days. Building time is around 1 hour I think if you keep the pace in it.
The real negative in my view is the upper wing, better made it with studs showing on both sides.
Overall I would give it the following scores:
Minifigs : 8
Building time : 7
Price : 6
Overall look : 9
