Okay folks! Let's get started! LEGO's description:Battle with Anakin in Star Wars: The Clone Wars!Blasting out of the new Clone Wars CG-Animated TV Series, it’s Anakin Skywalker’s customized Jedi starfighter! Fight the forces of the Separatists and the dark side with flick-firing missiles, retractable landing gear and an ejection button for R2-D2.
The back of the box just has some play features of the set and some other sets for purchase.
Yeah cuz' that's the side the energy comes out of your lightsaber... (Look at the way he's holding it)
You might need a knife or scissors to open the box.
Yay! The parts! Let's see what we have.
There's 2 medium bags and a small bag + the directions and stickers. (none of which I applied (Yet))
The directions are mostly normal but strangely missing which parts you need for each step...
Yeah because Vader was around during the Clone Wars. (Well obviously he was just not in that armor...)
The Anakins aren't all that different oh wait...They're hair, cloths, face, just about everything is different...About the new face IT'S TERRIBLE. It is so ugly I can't stand it. The new hairpiece is cool though as is the body.
Artoo isn't any different from the old one.
OK guys I FINALLY GET TO BUILD! [Everyone waits 15 mins.] *J gets board and randomly starts dancing* *Cob Chob rolls his eyes at J twiddles his thumbs and wishes he had some LEGOs to play with* *Marie let's the dog in and out 400 times while waiting* EDIT:If you see Cob Chob's comment I had to change Marie's scenario...
(Finally) Okay everyone I'm done! Here's the extra pieces! *Cob sighs* Jonathan show us the SET not the extra pieces!! Oh sorry...HERE it is! In all it's splendor I give you:ANAKIN'S JEDI STARFIGHTER! *pulls cloth away aaaaaand...)
*cricket cricket* Er...ha ha! Here it is!
The front is nice...
The sides are good and have nice detail *cough*not*coughcough*
The bottom is very empty has flick-fire missles AND A BUTTON SO ARTOO CAN FLYYY OUT!! ZOMG!!
The figs say bye!
-Nice color mix
-Always good to have another one of those cockpits
-Awesome hairpiece and body
-Very empty belly (No pun intended)
-TERRIBLE face for Anakin
-Flick-Fire missles are getting old
So there you have it! My first review! I think it went well-lots of commentary good photos and all that. Tell me how you liked it!
i've got this set, and i think the missiles are actually quite good. And by the way, what episode 2 one????? Are u sure your not thinking of obi wan's fighter????? Any ways i made a mod by removing part of the R2 ejector thingy. then i added a plate with studs on. with ahsoka's i took out the flat tiles and replaced them with plates. now the astromechs dont fall out. P.S. the ejector thingy on anakin's ship barely works.
I agree with Mood, the flick fires were a bad idea, along with the rest of the ship, I think. It was very un-cannicle and so I did a total refitting of both Anakin's and Ahsoka Tano's jedi starfighters. If you wana see em click on my name and click "star wars" link. I also have a Obi-Wan jedi starfighter from the Clone Wars movie.
I agree with anankins face- it is over detailed making him to look like old- already burned or alien he also looks like a clone- but i like that hairpiece but that is not reason enough for me to buy this- i bought Ahsoka's fighter- much better set but overpriced- it is also little bit smaller than this- it is oversized as all delta-7:s i don't like flickfires either -most funny thing is that there are warning about them- they are dangerous for little child's eyes only if someone sticks them into the eye -there aren't enough power with flickfire to do any damage- also i think that it is good that this set still had that good old artoo- newer one looks really bad with kinda stretched "face" also new r2 have many times their camera eyes printed in wrong place- at least my r7-a7 or whatever have bad printing job in it's face...
That set really is bad. Since you have the old Episode III Anakin's Jedi Starfighter, let me show you the difference between these two sets. The Episode III set was $20.00 AND it came with a vulture droid. This set should really be $10.00 since it's practically the same thing as the Episode III starfighter. Also, this set is RIDICOLOUSLY oversized. To see the real size this ship should be look at my DELTA-7 Jedi Starfighter.
