About this deal

The last non-licensed set to even come close to that archetypical spaceship design was the shuttle in 7690 MB-01 Eagle Command Base, and even that's stretching it. Some reviewers also mention that the set was a big hit and is one of the best Lego builds they have ever completed. As soon as I saw the movie I wanted this set, good to know it seems to be a decent build (haven’t had a chance to build mine yet). The neat thing about the Coruscant Gunship is that the shooters are mounted under two black hinge plates with angled side extensions each, so what I did was I put the darts in backwards; now when I handle the gunship, I hit the hinge plates and not the dart, preventing them from flying off to the unknown depths of my Lego-filled bedroom, never to be seen again. Highlights of this selection for me are the four black inverted bows, new to me but in several sets since last year; the gun with clip, which features in several Movie sets; and the Piece of Resistance, new here in (I think) pearl dark grey Flat Silver.

Yellow parts from this set late last year), their design ID and color are identical to the ones in 2010's Lunar Limo (5984). So far this new part has only come in Trans-Clear [BL]/Transparent [TLG], in the massive Star Wars 10240 Red Five X-Wing Starfighter last year. I expect Benny will be sought-after, at least because he only appears in this and the Sea Cow - the two most expensive sets in the range. Agreed on the 'wedge', and the overall design lines from every direction are superb - which I hope my clinical shots convey. I presume these are repair droids, judging by how they are stowed away, but I guess they could be multi-purpose.

Again, the black flick-fire mounts look a little out of place; I think dark or light bluish grey would have been a better choice.

The advertised piece count is 940, which seems surprisingly low but there are a lot of very large elements in there. One thing that we AFOLs often lose site of, and one of the underlying messages of the Movie, is that LEGO is still a kids toy. It would have been a cool little set to make it on its own, as the whole Emmet + Lucy thing was kind of important to the film.There are a whole bunch of stories from AFOLs that had their lasting LEGO memories thanks to Classic Space sets.

Man, I want to take this to show and tell but I can't figure out how to carry it on the subway to work. There's a recessed section with some Trans-Red bars reminiscent of a Space Police prison cell, and further greebling.In her guise of Astro Kitty her feet are 1X1 plates in Pearl Gold [BL]/Warm Gold [TLG] which is new, and a useful match for the very common 1X1 round plate in Pearl Gold.
