Review: 20006 Mini Clone Turbo Tank
Posted 23 November 2010 - 01:28 AM
This is first of the mini Star Wars models that I got so it’s a good place to start my series of Star Wars mini reviews. It is also one of my favorite Star Wars Vehicles (along with most Republic vehicles). So I was quite happy when it came with my Brickmaster in November of 2008.
Here's the BrickShelf gallery.
Name: Clone Turbo Tank
Theme: Star Wars
Price: Came with November 2008 Brickmaster
Here's a picture of the bag. Nothing special really. Just some fun art for the younger kids receiving this.
The back of the bag has your normal safety warning on it.
Out of the bag tumble the instructions and 64 parts with three extras. (which you will see later)
Here we have the assortment of parts for the model. Not a bad selection.
Front of the map. Nothing special, just the same art as the baggy.
Random Instruction Page.
Back of the instructions. Again nothing special just some ads for the some other sets.
By step Five you've built the main base for the model as well as the first layer of the tank.
By step ten you've got more of it coming together.
By step fifteen you almost have the entire tank built. And by step Seventeen you've completed the model!
Extras. It's always nice to get more of those "t" parts.
The Completed Model
Front view. Looks like the real thing; I would have liked some lights or something but Lego did okay with this.
Side. This looks a lot better when you switch out the dark Red for some dark Green.
Back. I would have liked to see a new part maybe a new one of these on the back but it might be that might be pushing it.
3/4 view. This gives you a general overview of the model.
Some SNOT was used in the construction. You can see it in this picture.
Playability: 9/10 I could spend hours playing with this if I wanted to, but I’m not much of a role player.
Design: 8/10 Quite simple, but it does convey the overall shape of the original.
Price: 10/10 I would hope this would have cost around $5.99 if it were for sale. If that is true then you get a great price-per-piece ratio in this set.
Overall: 27/30 Overall a good score for a small set. I could see a 5 or 6 year old enjoying this set quite a bit.

I like this mini, one of TLG's better ones.
The parts and design of the set are good, but I agree with you, that wedge plate would have made the back look alot smoother.
Thanks for the review!
